Upscale tapas and drinks

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... read 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

First time here and we will be back. Tapas are creative and tasty. I had the pickled sardines and rabbit sausage. We also had a salad and garlic shrimp. Terrific Albarino wine pairing. We went here before the opera. Quick service and we had plenty of time. By the time we left, place was full. We eat in Washington DC... More

La Boca Feliz was an authentic Santa Fe tapas experience. I called for reservations earlier that day and they were booked... I then called my credit card, Visa Signature to see if they would have any luck and they did, got us right in. Thanks Visa! Once sat we sat for quite a while while servers passed us by. After...

A small restaurant that delivers nice flavors. Make reservations during the high season. Our server was very helpful in assisting with the ordering process, which can be tricky at a tapas place. The vegetable and salad dishes were the stars, along with the short ribs -- order them! The other protein plates (fried shrimp and steak) were less inspiring.
