$91 Lunch/ couple

Would have been a 5 star except for the pitcher of Sangria. Yes I should have ask when ordered, but $40 I think was way to much, no fruit,, and not that great. We had 2 of sample plates and they were very good. Servier was exclent. LIke I say should have been a 5 star.

We had lunch here after mistaking Taberna La Boca with La Boca. Apparently they are related, and both are good, just different. We spent 3 years in Spain and appreciate a restaurant that tries to really emulate Spanish tapas. This place does a pretty good job. Spanish food is simple, but really good. The food here was also very good... More

My wife and I had a chance to go to Boca for lunch, and it was wonderful. The tapas ranged from really good to amazing. After being disappointed at another restaurant that claimed to serve genuine tapas, Boca was a wonderful relief: inventive and delicious. Truly wonderful. Do yourself a favor--go!

La Boca has been our favorite Santa Fe restaurant since its opening. In a city that can boast of many excellent restaurants, there has to be something particular that makes one place stand out. Here, it's Chef James. His creativity with food is magical. That sounds goofy, but the combinations can be so simple and unexpected, and the passion James... More

We stopped here for a late afternoon repast. Surprisingly, the place was quite busy. From the warm embraces from the staff the clients weren't all from out of town. Food was quite good with a beautiful presentation. Gluten-free bread is made in house and is offered with a $2.00 up charge. My husband raved about it and he doesn't have... More

Santa Fe is full of wonderful restaurants. La Boca had a great tapas selection. The service was excellent. All the tables are REALLY close together so you have to turn sideways to get in and out and you hear all your neighbors' conversations but many restaurants in Santa Fe are that way. I can certainly happily recommend this restaurant.

We went to their happy hour where tapas (limited) are half-price. They were delicious and inventive. We had no drinks, just wonderful food, but I was told that their sangria is terrific, too.

We stopped by without reservations, and were given a quiet little table with very prompt and attentive wait staff. The wine list was good and our meals were truly exceptional. Oh my goodness, a delightful surprise and superb meal!

Had dinner here over Indian Market weekend. Place was packed and with good reason! The tapas are very creative and tasty, although they could use more vegetarian options! I had tapas trio - the beet and walnut puree is the best of the three - and you can ask for more roasted flatbread if you run out. Also had the... More

This small restaurant serves spanish tapas in downtown Santa Fe around the corner from the main square. The lively crowd and décor gave the place a fun vibe and the food was excellent, especially the rabbit sausage, the short ribs, the Spanish jambon, and a delicious almond dessert with honey. They take reservations and we were seated in a timely... More
