Best Steak in New Orleans

Went back last night after an absence of almost a year - La Boca did not disappoint. The best steaks in New Orleans hands down. Don't bother with that RC place, they are over-priced and not even near as good. As my fellow reviewers note, the La Boca steaks are the best. And every side is so great... read more

I will admit that I haven't tried every steak house in New Orleans but I have tried most of them and amongst the few true prime houses this place stand out for three reasons: 1. Consistently high quality and full flavor 2. Unique Argentinian wine list 3. Very knowledgeable welcoming and engaged general manager. I have tried 4-5 items on... More

I visited La Boca with a bachelor party of 11-12. There were many courses spread out properly. The tastes of the different dishes complemented each other and the variety was great as well. The steak was wonderful. The steak was cooked great and everyone enjoyed it. The deserts were out of this world. The chocolate was amazing, the cake with... More

Great steaks, kobe beef that melts in your mouth. They take great pride in their product and service and its obvious. The sides are family style and good eating all around, desserts were incredible. Amaro tasting to end an incredible meal. These folks know steaks, My favorite meal in New Orleans. Highly recommended.

We always make sure to eat here at least once when in New Orleans. They have the best hangar steak ever, complete with chimichurri sauces. The manager was nice enough to come by and suggest a wine he thought we would like from our description of what we were looking for, it was fabulous. We just love the atmosphere and... More

The first thing to impress us (went there with my family) was the fried steak empanada appetizer. Very crispy and tasty. The complimentary bread is also very good. The steaks are juicy and flavorful. You have to order the side dishes apart, but they can be shared by 2 or 3 people. The restaurant has a very pleasant decor and... More

Huge Portions! The food is great and the service was pretty good. The wine list is alright, but only Argentia wines. Good luck finding something to drink if you don't know these wines. The Sweetbreads were the best we ever had!

Not your typical steakhouse. The variety of cuts, beef and preparation styles was impressive, and the Argentinian accompaniments and side dishes made it quite unique. The waitress was excellent and took her time explaining the menu to us. We also enjoyed the large selection of Argentinian wines. Everything was very flavorful. The atmosphere was intimate and upscale but not pretentious.... More
