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.

Everything we ordered was delicious but decadent. The melted cheese dish was incredible but heavy. A good dish to share. Highly recommend!

The food was great and atmosphere was even better but our server was just so so and for that price I wanted better service.

I've never bothered to make a reservation here, but I would probably recommend doing so if you wouldn't want to have to wander around the street waiting as I have. The staff is nice. The gnocchi is my favorite thing that I have ordered there, and the garlic fries are also very good. Everything is always wonderful and delicious. I... More

Amazing argentine steakhouse. Service was good, the hearts of palm salad outstanding, and my steak, a bone-in filet (the lomo), was perfect. Left happy and sated

Stopped in here for an appetizer and a drink while walking back to my hotel. Very nicely decorated and the staff was very attentive. Wide variety of choices on the menu. The kind of neighborhood place you go to and get the local warm and welcome feel.

Went back last night after an absence of almost a year - La Boca did not disappoint. The best steaks in New Orleans hands down. Don't bother with that RC place, they are over-priced and not even near as good. As my fellow reviewers note, the La Boca steaks are the best. And every side is so great - they... More

I will admit that I haven't tried every steak house in New Orleans but I have tried most of them and amongst the few true prime houses this place stand out for three reasons: 1. Consistently high quality and full flavor 2. Unique Argentinian wine list 3. Very knowledgeable welcoming and engaged general manager. I have tried 4-5 items on... More

I visited La Boca with a bachelor party of 11-12. There were many courses spread out properly. The tastes of the different dishes complemented each other and the variety was great as well. The steak was wonderful. The steak was cooked great and everyone enjoyed it. The deserts were out of this world. The chocolate was amazing, the cake with... More

Great steaks, kobe beef that melts in your mouth. They take great pride in their product and service and its obvious. The sides are family style and good eating all around, desserts were incredible. Amaro tasting to end an incredible meal. These folks know steaks, My favorite meal in New Orleans. Highly recommended.
