Amazing Tapas and wine list...Spanish guitar..perfect setting for a perfect dinner. We sat at a table for 2 near the back of the room by the bar. It was quaint and secluded. The paella was wonderful...Grilled Parmesan artichoke was amazing. I would go to this restaurant again! Really great food and nice service.

We chose to eat here on our first night in Santa fe while on a week long stay. We saw the trip advisor  reviews and noticed many vegan options on the menu. A fairly small tapas place with understated decor, but nice. We noticed that the waitress had a deep knowledge of the dishes and the way they were prepared.... More

My husband and I were so excited about this restaurant after reading the reviews. We were very disappointed! We left hungry and the food was not very good.

We dined here form the second time this trip to Santa Fe. The food is very well done and seems authentic. Makes a great date place and has a nice wine list.

I'd heard so many great things about this place, but it simply was not our thing. The small plates/tapas were not interesting at all... and just loaded with way too much olive oil. We left hungry and unsatisfied (and broke, as the prices are awfully steep for what you get).

My husband and I had dinner and Valentine's Day lunch at La Boca. Both experiences were very good. Here are some of the tapas we tried: grilled artichoke hearts with goat cheese, pork and shrimp tacos, charcuterie plate, skewered pork belly, and the cheese plate. All were delicious. We also had an almond soup with carmelized onion and fideo; both... More
