I've eaten here 4 times; twice with just my wife & I and twice with our two teenagers. All 4 times have been great experiences. Atmosphere is great, service outstanding, and the food had been consistently good. Many of the steaks are big enough for two to share. My favorite is the outside skirt... read more

I ate here with a group of 6 for a business dinner and had a pretty good meal. We did not opt for the tasting menu as it's a whole table must participate option. The selection of steak cuts was great...they even have the amazing steak with a skin coating that's slow roasted, my favorite Argentinian BBQ cut. Definitely recommend... More

We followed our noses right into the front door. We each had skirt steak....one with and one without skin......both delicious but very different. Without skin was super tender....with skin was more flavorful. Very generous portions...well seasoned and complemented with house sauces...no A1 here please! Must try are the 3 day fries! Exceptional Argentinean wine list....several exclusive selections. Really terrific....would like... More

Mixed feelings. Went there for an Argentine steak house, but came away feeling it was a bit more steak house than Argentine in character. Always nervous about places that don’t show their prices on their online menu, too. It was a little pricy, but not as bad as some of the national steakhouses. Delicious skirt steak, good fries but served... More

We dined here to do the chefs tasting menu and were rather excited because my friend had won the gift certicate in a raffle. The menu if i remember was a few courses, an assortment of sausage to start, shared at the table, croquettas, a green salad, then the mains with an assortment of sides (mash, mac and greens if...

We ate at a lot of highly-reviewed places (Cafe du Monde, 3 Muses, Dooky Chase, Cafe Amelie, El Gato Negro) over the past three days but this was by far our best meal, and the only one that totally met or exceeded our expectations. My favorite dish in the entire world is entraña (Argentinian skirt steak) with papas Provenzal (french... More

La Boca specialises in steak and does it very well. The menu was surprisingly extensive, with many different cuts of steak in various styles. The server knew his stuff and did a good job of explaining the menu for us, as the American and European terms for different cuts are not the same. The drinks menu is vast, including a... More

This restaurant is great for steak lovers who aren't looking for too many distractions. If you're looking for anything other than steak, do not dine here. A friend introduced this restaurant to me and insisted that I have "Entraña Fina". It was delicious. We shared a side of grilled asparagus. Be sure to make reservations as La Boca is in... More

We uesd open table to book a table and that process went flawlessly. They serve American beef is Argentian style. The wine list was a nice size and featured a large number of Argentine Malbecs. I love Malbec so it was perfect. If you have room, the provolenta is a great starter. Rich and delicious. The Befe de Chorizo (ny... More

Stumbled onto this restaurant because Emeril's was too crowded. Great find food and service were outstanding. Had sweetbreads for an appetizer with hanger steak for an entrée. the staff was super friendly and very efficient. Everything on the wine list is from Argentina so I need help picking the right one to pair with the sweetbread and steak. The manager... More
