We had a lovely, if pricey, meal at La Boca. We arrived early and were seated immediately. Service was attentive but not overbearing. The food was very good as was the wine we chose. We also very much enjoyed a musician who was singing and playing guitar that night. All in all a delightful atmosphere - just couldn't afford to... More

Just spent a wonderful week in Santa Fe, and the only disappointment was the La Boca restaurant. Living near Washington DC, I've had the pleasure of sampling various tapas menus--this was no where near my expectations. The selection of items was small; many of the offerings not very authentic; and some of the portions--even for tapas--incredibly small. My husband ordered... More

We had an enjoyable and leisurely lunch at la Boca. We both ordered the 3 course special ( soup, entree, desert). I'm not a fan of beets, but the golden beet soup with pineapple was delicious. The paella was excellent. The omelet entree was made with Manchego cheese. We love Manchego but we don't think it is a great omelet... More

What a fun experience! We took our group of 12 who had never eaten at a tapas restaurant. The waitress was very helpful in helping us to order delectable choices. We all agreed that the food was wonderful.

What a fun menu. We all ordered various tapas so we could share and found ourselves hoarding our own choices because they were so wonderful. The waiter was very helpful in suggesting tapas. Be prepared to order three or four each to get a true tasting of the menu.

Restaurant was recommended by a tour guide so we gave it a go. We ordered paella and tapas. The paella was overwhelmed with hot sauce where it tasted like a dish from a can. The tapas were not like any tapas that we have had before. Greasy flatbread and three choices of toppings that at best, rivaled a supermarket deli.... More

We had reservations late on a Saturday night. We arrived about 15 minutes early, and luckily our table was ready. We started with the flatbread & three spreads, which was amazingly good. The ribeye we ordered was delicious as well. The octopus was the best I have ever had, though a bit salty. The atmosphere was pleasant and the wait... More

We were going to El Meson but they were closed. We were extremely pleased with this place. Highly recommend the Trio something and bruschetta.

Between a substantial breakfast in Santa Fe on a rare snowy morning and dinner reservations for 7 pm, there comes a nibbling desire for something to hold you over. The perfect solution is sherry and tapas at La Boca. I know nothing about sherry, but the server was happy to make suggestions. We started out with warm, crunchy bread, a... More

Got there before Happy Hour was over and had great tasting tapas for half the price. Service was good. Wine was very good also.
