Don't fear the tiny space!

Our second trip to Santa Fe and the third time we've enjoyed dining here! Don't be swayed away by the small space. The food is so worth it! I always enjoy the blood orange sangria and their tapas will blow your mind. For two, we were stuffed with the chef's choice three course tapas and a shared... read more

My travel companion and I came upon this lovely little spot. How lucky we were to discover it. We shall revisit it again when passing through.

The happy hour and tapas at La Boca was recommended by my hotel and it did not disappoint. The interior was cozy and quaint and reminiscent of cafes I have visited in France. The wait staff was attentive with great recommendations. I was on a tight time frame and they were more than willing to accommodate me. The wine selection... More

We went to this restaurant at the recommendation of our hotel front office. We generally have one fancy meal in our entire holiday and we chose this place. Our hotel made reservations for us as they get busy and have long wait time. We arrived 10 minutes prior to our scheduled time and were immediately seated. We were given our... More

Excellent and innovative tapas. We had several in our two visits, but the brussel sprouts and the shrimp and morcilla tacos were real standouts. My wife and I sat at the bar, where the staff is really knowledgeable, friendly and engaging, and we met some interesting locals as well. A great wine and sherry by the glass list allows for...

Get the artichokes with goat cheese! Heaven! and we had lovely service with nice guidance on the wine. Mostly out-of-town visitors on the evening we were there, but we enjoyed it thoroughly none the less.

If you want a meal of food that is a little different, try La Boca. This is a small restaurant but it serves Spanish Tapa food. Not Mexican or New Mexican. It was excellent Spanish Tapas. The spicy shrimp and sauce was some of the best I have ever had. I had to get more bread to sop up all... More

This restaurant was not on my "have-to" list, but was recommended by our server the previous evening at another restaurant. So glad! It was the perfect amount of food for two people who were still full from lunch -- the small plates were just what we needed. Prices were reasonable, too. I would recommend the sherry-braised short rib and the... More
