Best restaurant experience in Santw Fe

Large group of ten people and we all loved it. Tapas delicious and something for everyone. Service was excellent. Each started with two tapas and ended up having enough to pass around.

We found two tapas apiece to be about the right amount and we shared ours all around even though we really only found one we all agreed upon ordering. The menu is large, with many foods described in unfamiliar terms, and the selections are dominated by fetas and goat cheeses, shellfish, and blood sausages, which managed to repel at least... More

We'd had a big breakfast and even after walking all day wanted something a little lighter. The tapas menu selection for happy hour is incredible and really well priced. They even have a few beverages on special, which seems to be increasingly uncommon for happy hour where we're from. We chose the Tapas Trio, the Bruschetta and the Pincho de... More

Came solo and had a great time and a very good meal! Chose the eggplant with manchego and honey, then continued with trio of spreads, made from beet, tahini and eggplant, paired with yogurt infused flatbread. To this, a glass of Tempranillo 2008 from Rioja. Finished with chocolate pôt de crème and chamomile tea. Service was simply wonderful - everyone... More

The hostess seated us even though we did not have a reservation, I think if we had gotten there any later we would not have been seated so quickly. The place is an open seating tables in rows very open. We had a guitarist playing in the back ground Spanish music (softly and cozy. He was very good) Waitrist and... More

Food was very good. We had the paella, grilled brussel sprouts tapas and to die for manchego cheese tapas rolled in crumbs and fried (we ordered seconds on the cheese). I tried a glass of Montsant Sola Fred wine that was very good. Although the place was small (tables) the service and atmosphere were great.

We got 2 starters -- the artichokes which had a wonderful lemon sauce and the bruschetta which was the best. It was an egg with mushrooms and cream sauce. That was fabulous. The main courses we had of chicken and shrimp tacos were tasteless without the sauce and too spicy with the sauce -- but if you like spicy food... More

Our waiter, Jay, helped us choose the items for the 4 of us in our party and we loved them all, especially the artichokes, the flat iron steak, and the ahi tuna. The desserts he recommended we also fantastic. We made a reservation for the next night as well when Austin served us. We had the same items mentioned above... More

Food was very good. I had the tapas 4 lunch while my wife had the grilled artichokes and brussells sprouts. 2 glasses of a very nice Tempranillo (G151). Nice atmosphere and service by Pablo was excellent.

We were literally blown away by the food and the amazing service. I highly recommend the grilled artichoke hearts as well as the Flatiron Steak with Salted Caramel Sauce. And while the chicharrones were a little less than amazing, everything else (including the beet soup and paella) were out of this world. A big thanks to everyone at La Boca... More
