Sweetbreads

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

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!
