La Boca is an Argentine style steakhouse with our entire menu focused on the national food of Argentina, beef. 13 different cuts on any given night accompanied with legendary french fries and house made pastas. The wine list is entirely from Argentina with Malbec being the focus. Maitre'd of the Year Orestes Rodriguez will greet you at the door and make sure your stay is as fulfilling as the food.

Best steak in town!

You can keep Ruth's Chris! La Boca has the most flavorful steaks around. Ask what the special cut of the day is. You will not be disappointed. The sides are very good as well. This is an Argentinian steakhouse that does not fit into the regular New Orleans tourist type places. But the food is... read more

My wife and I dined here as a bit of a splurge. She had the bone in filet, and I had the waygu steak. It was amazing! Her filet was the tougher of the two in the way that butter is tougher than cream. The steaks were delicately seasoned and flavorful enough that we skipped their variety of house made... More

There are so many great places to eat in the Warehouse District. La Boca was a great change of pace from the regular lineup of a la carte steakhouses. I had the skirt steak with the crust. Amazing. I preferred it with the sea salt without any of the sauce choices. The atmosphere is quiet and laid back, great for... More

Superb restaurant for steak in a city with may excellent steakhouses. Many different choices of cuts of beef. The salads and vegetables were excellent as well. While we were "full" due to the large portions we did manage to share the dessert sampler and were very glad we did. Service was excellent. Only negative is the drink I had -... More

Our family and friends were in NOLA for my daughter's wedding. Several people mention La Boca as a great place to eat. We went on a Thursday night with a group of 12 and were seated promptly. Not sure if we had a reservation but would encourage you to have one. The restaurant is in the arts district on the... More

La Boca is a certainly steakhouse but it is an unpretentious one. That's not to say that it is a lesser establishment because it is everything that you could want in a steakhouse. Confused yet? One of the things that I like most about La Boca is the varied cuts. Being an Argentinian steakhouse, they prepare traditional Argentinian cuts, like... More

My husband and I were on a date night and decided to dine at LaBoca. We had heard that the food was fab. We made reservations and were seated immediately upon arrival at 6:30. All was good - service, drinks, appetizers...until the 24 ounce ribeye arrived. My husband and I shared the steak. However, I literally took two bites. It... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant, and we couldn't be happier. Service and food were the best I believe I've ever had. Everything we had was outstanding.

Our family of 8 went to La Boca for my son's birthday dinner and it was outstanding! Service could not have been better! Cocktails were inventive. The steaks were not your run of the mill steakhouse choices - they were interesting and delicious. The sides were very good as well. We sampled all of the desserts which were scrumptious as... More

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighborhood Profile
Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
