We eat here every few months. We always get the same meal. Hanger steak, heart of palm salad, garlic fries and flourless chocolate cake. So good. Excellent service. Always worth it.

Food - 4/5 stars Service - 2.5/5 stars Enjoyed their steak. Their service was inattentive at best. The wait staff did not come back to check on us after the food came at all. After the check came and we paid, there was about a 20 minute wait for them to bring the credit card back so we could leave.... More

We arrived for a 9:30 pm Saturday night reservation. The place was packed and you could tell everyone was enjoying the evening. 3 spaces opened up at the bar while we were waiting for a table so we decided to go ahead and eat there. Great experience. Bar service was great! My wife had the rib eye which she loved... More

After talking for a year about eating dinner here, we finally made it. We had a 730p reservation and were seated immediately, even though we were 5 minutes early. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and helped us narrow down our choices. I rarely eat steak but decided to indulge and I'm glad I did. The steak was... More

4 of us dined. My salad was inedible as if a salt shaker had spilled on it . Surprisingly, overwhelming saltiness made one person's steak also nasty. My steak was good but not outstanding albeit cooked just as ordered .The waitress was annoyed that we got started ordering later than she expected. There were open tables however on this Saturday...

Being fair their steak was good, but there attitude was more than arrogant. Having discusssed with the waiter wether to order their special fries or mashed potatoes. I opted on the Bocas hand cut fries based on their description of overnight blanched and hand cut from fresh potatoes springled with garlic and parsley. It all sounded to good to be... More

We had a graduation dinner there. The whole table agreed to the fixed menu which was amazing. We all could order our own steaks but all else was bought out family style so we could sample different items. Their French fries are to die for and also the dessert plate

La Boca is an argentine steakhouse in the warehouse district. The beef is out of this world with unusual cuts (skirt, hangar) included. The skirt steak was superb as was the strip. The Gnocchi is great as were all the empanadas. Wonderful selection of Malbec and other red blends. If you visit N'Awlins, visit this restaurant !

We went to La Boca because it was highly recommended by a local bartender and some random patrons at The Rusty Nail. From start to finish it was very good. First we sat at the bar because there was an hour wait for a table and it was just fine. We shared the hearts of palm salad and a couple... More

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighborhood Profile
Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
