Went to the sister restaurant, Taberna, the night before for dinner, and enjoyed it so we thought we would try La Boca for lunch before heading back to Tucson. The food is great. Service was quick. Our server was very knowledgeable of the food and wines. We had to laugh because our Sat evening server was the Sun afternoon bar... More

Hadn't been there for several years. Used to be plain and simple. Now mighty danged fussy and prissy. Tapas are pretty good but small portions and way over priced. Service was bad before and even worse now. Waiters snobbish and gosh awful slow. But not slow when rushing us to vacate our table, like herding cattle.

This place was so good! The melon tapa is one that I'm still telling people about since it was so delicious. Make sure to live on the wild side and have a glass of sherry with your meal.

Nice restaurant, small. Went there on Monday, they were full so we made reservations for the following night (for 3 people). Upon arrival they had a reservation for 2 AND the wrong cell nr written down. Took a while to get a table.... Not a nice start. Food very good, pricey!

We stopped in for tapas after visiting the Georgia O'Keeffe museum. It was early in the afternoon so the prices were reasonable. The service was a bit brusk, but the food was very good as were the drinks. I thought the atmosphere was nice and I would reccommend.

Everything is done simply and Very well. Nice wines to pair with the meals. Great way to end a Summer evening in Santa Fe. Just Hoping the new Venture in Albuquerque becomes more consistent and lives up to the standards of this place.

The tapas menu was unusual (one of my choices was pork belly and octopus) and varied, but our selections did not disappoint. I am very gluten intolerant, and the waitress did not hesitate to show me the selections that were safe for me...and there were a lot of them. Yes, they were pricey, but they were served one at a...

This was the very best Spanish tapas restaurant we have been to since we were in Madrid many years ago. We started with imported artichokes in wonderful olive oil, so good we had a second order. After that we had Gambas -- shrimp with garlic -- and a chicken dish. Our waiter suggested Alicante red wine which was perfect with... More

I've eaten at La Boca about 10 times. The food is relatively good for an American Tapas restaurant but the staff are not so friendly and the prices are high especially as the portions being small require that you need to order quite a few resulting in an expensive bill. It's also quite crowded as the owner wanting to make... More

We went for Happy Hour to try the tapas. Been wanting to go for a long time and it was well worth it. The hummus trio was excellent, the red pepper and beet were our faves. The fingerling potatoes with garlic aoli was also very good. The steak tapa with caramel sauce was perfectly cooked and melted in the mouth.... More
