Heard plenty of great things about La Boca from many friends. What we had not heard is that it's a steakhouse and ONLY A STEAKHOUSE. The menu is small but the quality Is great. We didn't. Get an appetizer because all the apps were some sort of meat or sausage. You have 2 salad options. One with a watermelon vinaigrette... More

I order the "Bife" la boca steak with a few sides. The steak was lovely, it was cut up into smaller slices as some people have previously complied about but I don't really see the issue unless your going to take it personally that the resteraunt thinks you are incapable of cutting meat. The sides were very nice although the... More

I really like the atmosphere and all around experience here. The steaks are just the best. Perfectly cooked and are even better when paired with the mashed potatoes. I'll be sure to come back to this place when I need a steak! If any thing I do kind of wish they had a little better beer selection but I tried... More

My husband and I love to go La Boca for a nice dinner. The steaks are delicious and they have very different cuts than normal steakhouses (ie, entrana fina, sweetbreads, etc). Everything we have ever eaten here has been delicious. The staff is attentive. The manager however, is very unprofessional. He makes snide remarks at the bar about tables, and... More

Great local Argentinean steakhouse and one of Adolfo Garcia's top places in New Orleans. This warehouse district location has been a staple in New Orleans for several years now for both locals and tourists. I once saw "Rocky Balboa" himself dining on a little protein. I love the bone in filet and think this restaurant adds to the already vibrant... More

Too many excellent restaurants in New Orleans to be treated with such arrogance and rudeness by the person in charge on Monday! Sorry Mr. Manager, but we don't drink Scotch no matter how hard you push it. Not only were both my husband and I insulted by the manager, but he was visibly disgusted when a group of typical looking... More

We had a reservation and were seated immediately. The food was creative and tasty for a steak house. The service was pretty good. The room itself is dominated by a busy bar. It feels more like a hip club then a steak house. Unfortunately, the room is very loud. We could not have a conversation. A good meal and a... More

The three of us had a 8:00pm table on a Friday night and were promptly seated. The wine list was presented and what a great selection! We all ordered the Bone in Ribeye, and each of our steaks were cooked to perfection. The sides were delicious and everything was served in a timely manner. The presentation of selecting our steak...
