“Great selection of tapas and a super wine menu!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Taberna LaBoca is a great new addition to the Santa Fe dining scene. We usually sit at the bar, the staff are wonderful, have great suggestions for new wines, always willing to let you taste before they pour. The food is very creative, the atmosphere is quite festive. There is usually music, most of the time a few guitars, adds to the feel of the place. I have also been there for brunch, also quite yummy.

“Amazing Service & Excellent Food. Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The atmosphere was lovely. We were warmly welcomed as we walked in & rapidly provided with a little bread to nibble on. The staff was incredibly helpful without being intrusive. The food was EXCELLENT; we tried 3 different tapa plates & each was incredible. After dinner coffee was STRONG & delicious & dessert was the best thing I ate the entire time I was in Santa Fe. So good!

“Best Tapas in town. And that's saying something”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

This is a much needed extension of the beloved La Boca on Water St. Tucked in the only sterile building downtown ( what were they thinking ? Shame on the developer ) combined with a wierd table by the door I wasn't off to a great start. My fault for last minute reservations. But the food, the service and the reasonably priced wine list actually made up for the worst table ever. We had the Tuna, the flat iron steak, mushrooms in garlic and artichoke hearts with goat cheeses. Along with olives, bread and a side of sardines it was more than enough for 3. First time but not my last by any means. I will just be careful to specify a table. Couldn't recommend a SF rest more.

“Already Missing The Food and Flavors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I ate at Taberna La Boca twice during a four night stay in Santa Fe. The food was delicious. I've never had tapas that were so good. The flavors were complex, yet clean and perfectly balanced. We would return every night if we could!

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We have traveled throughout Spain, love the food, and this is the first place we have found where we thought the food was really authentically Spanish, not an American re-creation of tapas, which is typically the case. Food was excellent in flavor and portions were very generous - plenty to share. The restaurant is small and cozy. Service was excellent. We loved it and will definitely return.
