We ordered 8 different tapas and not a single off note in the bunch. Loved, loved, loved the flat iron steak, the fried Brussels sprouts, the golden and red beets with goat cheese and the potatoes with an aioli sauce that cried "sop me up" with the fluffy bread. The only negative was that we were out in an hour...I... More

We happened upon La Boca by accident. The lunch my wife and I shared made this accident one of our happiest. She raved about her smoked salmon omelet After I tasted it I told her it was almost as good as my skewered chicken and salsa with avacado. Don't miss La Boca.

Located north of the plaza on a quiet block of Marcy Street. The bruschetta is indeed unique (see other reviewers' photos) and delectable. You don't need to be an adventurous diner to enjoy this dish, only have a palate that experiences both familiar and nuanced flavors. The grilled artichoke was also delicious. For tapas these were generous portions so two... More

We had a very late lunch of tapas (appetizers), which were great: tacos and cabbage, fried artichokes, and shrimp and blood sausage. The blood-orange sangria was excellent. The service was good too.

The food and service were the best we had for lunch in Santa Fe. We had specials, we had paella and we had sangria which were superb. The service was top notch and the food inventive and exceptional. Don't miss this one.

This review is mainly for overcrowded conditions, poor service and high prices. They have so many little tables in a small area that it seemed like the people at the table next to ours were sitting with us. And with the servers rushing around, squeezing between the tables in the cramped conditions, it was a chaotic experience that we wouldn't... More

Tapas served Spanish style. Small and somewhat close but it's absolutely worth eating shoulder to shoulder with each other. The food was a taste treat. We had a total of 6 tapas and all were varied and outstanding. Went from tuna to short ribs to flank steak to mushrooms and all were great. Reservations are a must.

The menu is mostly small plates (tapas) like most of NY Village restaurants. The difference is the authentic flavors of Spain. Lots of garlic, serrano ham and Spanish olive oil flavors. Portions were small but not unexpected. Paella, of course, was on the menu. We stuck with the traditional Spanish small plates and the delicious sangria. So refreshing on a... More

Excellent food quality and well-presented; Very good choices...both food and wine/beer; Friendly, non-rushed service; Gave us a choice of tables; Pleasant soft guitar background music. Only slight issues were a fairly tight squeeze of tables and the table was a little small considering the dining style. Recommend and will return.

stopped in while in Santa Fe for a treat with my teen daughter. Have visited before this location and sister location. Love the diverse and flavorful food. Our server, Nicholas, not so good...did the minimum - took our order, brought our order in a rushed and distracted manner. I had to flag him down several times as he didn't check... More
