This Spanish tapas restaurant is a block north of the Governor's Palace. We went on Halloween evening, so things were a little different, most obviously that the waiters were in costume. Another difference was a special menu of Mexican tapas, including a fine serving of duck mole. The two of us shared four tapas, two Spanish, two Mexican, and a... More

This restaurant has a great selection of tapas and appetizers. I was their for lunch and it was very busy but I received excellent service and the food was very good. It is a little tight as there are many tables. I don't think you will be disappointed by trying out this restaurant - Spanish food.

Let me first say that my wife and I have been to La Boca with friends several times over the years. While this review is strictly for our most recent visit, it is consistent with our other visits. There is no doubt that Chef Caruso is a master of great flavors for each plate. Unfortunately, the server was totally disengaged... More

This is a small, lively place. I think it would be too crowded and loud for us at dinner but we really enjoyed it for lunch. The tapas we tried were all delicious. Service was fine. Reservations recommended.

We went on a Wednesday night during the off season and the place was packed. As this is a small venue, this should have been our clue to leave. The noise is over the top, the tables are very small and very close together, those for couples are lined up down the middle, about 6 inches apart, and I felt... More

We had a great meal here on a recent Saturday night. The decor is nothing to write home about, but there is a lovely ambience nonetheless. I find that the wait staff in a restaurant is so important in setting a tone; you want to trust the person who's "driving the car" and feel safe in their decision-making. Our server,... More

I went here for a group birthday, the hostess was wise and created a Prix fixe menu. My favorites were the Cuban sandwich, it was flavorful and fresh and was on some of the best bread I think I've had! And the Tapas Trio three flavors to dip grilled flat bread in; three purees one of edemame, one of beets... More

We had some mediocre meals in Santa Fe but La Boca was NOT one of them. Creative ingredients but not over the top trying too hard stuff. Excellent quality of ingredients, presentation and taste combustion ! A wonderful treat for dinner or lunch

We love this restaurant. It is small and romantic with great food. The morcilla and rabbit were splendid, as were the patatas bravas and melon salad. Wait staff was great and they had an extensive wine list. I highly recommend for anyone visiting Santa Fe.

This is tapas restaurant. We had never been there before, but really enjoyed the variety. The brussel sprouts are delicious, but the chicken skewer was a little dry. The kale salad was scrumptious. I would go there again.
