Don't go here looking for an authentic Spanish Tapas Bar atmosphere. You will be sadly disappointed. It is a VERY small restaurant with no bar at all that I could see and tables so closely placed together that it was impossible to even move my elbows while cutting my food, and a private conversation was impossible. In all my travels... More

This is an intimate Spanish tapas restaurant not to be missed, one which caters to a rather upscale and excellently-palated local community, rather than simply serving to touristas who will never return. This clearly is a restaurant created and built by an excellent chef with great vision and passion. La Boca more than fairly prides itself as having a knowledgeable... More

We've been to La Boca several times over the years and found it wonderful. But our luncheon there on Wednesday was so disappointing. The wait staff was inattentive and sloppy. Our meal was so delayed it was obvious the waiter had forgotten to put our order in. Tables that came in after us had gotten their wine and finished their... More

I had the black pasta...my wife had a salad. Would give each an A. We also shared a Cumbre Elevated IPA beer...delicious. We would go back here readily. Wish it were in the Midwest!

This delightful restaurant was perfect for our last night in Santa Fe. The food was delicious and the portions were just right. Our waiter was very helpful and helped us pick out wines for dinner and dessert.

As tourists, we are always asking locals about their favorite places to eat. Whenever we mentioned La Boca, the response was universally positive about "the new tapas restaurant". We had reservations for four and were seated almost immediately. The server was very helpful and recommended that 4 guests normally order between 8 and 12 plates. We ordered 7 different tapas...

The greeter insisted on seating us at a tiny table which barely provided room enough for the food and required that dishes were consolidated and removed early. This was despite the fact that several larger tables were available and the restaurant was not very busy. That being said, the food we had was good (our desert was, in fact, heavenly).... More

Such a great find on vacation!. Incredible small plates - lots of local produce, mixture of favors and textures. We had the artichokes with goat cheese; the Heirloom tomatoes, Watermelon and feta cheese salad; tacos de la Boca and Patatos Bravos - all super delicious! Soon after we arrived, we noticed some of the specials of the day were disappearing... More

The high notes... we visited this restaurant quite a few times in the last 6 months. We enjoy the format which allows you to share small plates with each other. The food is super fresh and has nice layers of flavor. I have yet to try something I don't like and pretty much everything I've eaten is top shelf. It... More
