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... read more

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

The flavor and tenderness is due to the quality of the meat; and the subtle enhancing seasonings - not just sprinkled or rubbed on; and not salty spicey or overwhelming. I had the 20 oz ribeye which was unsurpassed. It's a charming quaint atmosphere; not too big and thank goodness, although a bustling full house its NOT loud! Nice windows... More

We ate here one evening between Xmas & New Year. Reserved via open table, the restaurant was absolutely packed. They only serve steaks, so don't go here if one of your party is wanting to eat anything other. The hanger steak and rib eye were both perfect, fries to die for, and the desserts are enormous - plenty big enough... More

Waiter arrived and took our order for our drinks with no help in recommendations for wine. Anyway, I knew what I wanted to drink and ordered and he returned with same and took our food order...

The Chicago bone in filet was the best I've ever had. The service has been perfect every time. The manager remembers me too. So welcoming. Thank you!
