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.

We went for a college graduation, my niece loves steak. Even though we couldn't get reservations until 9:30 it was well worth the wait. Six course at 10pm, wasn't sure about this, but it was one great course after another. Starters were empanda and a special sausage which were both great. I'm missing one course but trust all great, even... More

My wife and I were very excited to go to La Boca with a group of colleagues for a business dinner, as this establishment had been tagged as "the best steak in New Orleans." We are locals, and have dined at many of the highest rated restaurants in the city, but had not yet tried La Boca. We arrived and... More

We stumbled across this place after long waits at another nearby restaurant. After checking the menu, our party of 4 was undeterred by the relatively high prices and were promptly seated. What was great was that it was not super busy (Monday night) and we could actually talk as a group without shouting to hear each other. A staff member... More

By far, this is our favorite restaurant in New Orleans. The food is terrific. It's not your typical steak house, which is why we enjoy it so much. The sides, the food, the wine, and the service are never disappointing. Try the brussels sprouts--they are devine! My only wish is that I could go more often!

I hadn't been to La Boca since it moved. I was impressed with every aspect. The space is energetic but not too loud. The staff is as professional as it gets. Fred waited on us, and he was an expert on the different cuts. Very helpful. I had the Brussels sprouts and skirt steak, which were fantastic. The morcilla blood... More

I was with a group of 3 looking for great steak. We found this place through tripadvisor and it was within walking distance, so we called at 6:10 to see when we could get a reservation. They told us either 6:30 or 7:30, so we high tailed it for 6:30. Not sure why they couldn't take us at 7 or... More

Great steakhouse with an Argentinian twist (owner and/or chef is Argentinian). Knowledgeable staff full of great suggestions. Excellent wine selection.

We try to visit here anytime we are in NOLA. This was our first visit to their new place. Same area but bigger space. Was as great as usual.
