We didn't have a reservation for a Friday evening, but were fortunate to grab a table before the dinner crowd arrived. We shared four tapas: Quesos de la Casa (cheese board--goat cheese was my fav!), Jambon Serrano (dry cured Spanish ham), bacon wrapped dates (with...More

We had booked our five nights of restaurants before we arrived in Santa Fe. La Boca was the second night. We were so overcome by this fabulous eatery that we cancelled one of our future reservations and rebooked La Boca. Better tapas than SPAIN! One...More

We had not booked so we went early at 5pm and managed to get a table but by 6pm the restaurant had really filled up so perhaps best to book. Quite an informal restaurant with very efficient and friendly service. We ordered 4 different tapas...More

Located on a side street, and in the middle of the block sits this little restaurant . They seemed fairly busy for a late lunch, but were seated immediately. The restaurant filled up at that point. Service good. Tapas looked good, but we have that...More

Great place for Spanish tapas and sherry. We had dinner on a Thursday night at the Taberna location. This location is much larger than the older location, but just across the alley with live entertainment in the evening.

We try to eat whenever we're in Santa Fe. OK maybe a quarter of the time because there are a lot of great places to eat in town. Occasionally, you can snag a table easily as a walk-in. However, more often than not, you will...More

My wife and I shared 3 tapas. The Tuna ceviche and Langostino Ajillo were just OK. The mushroom Bruschetta was very good. The wine selection was also just OK. Considering the reviews La Boca had gotten, we were disappointed. The service was very good though.

I was in Santa Fe for work, and stumbled across this tapas restaurant the first night there. I wish I had gone back! Their version of the tiramisu was to die for- it had hints of lemon! And they gave you a free wine pairing...More

I don't know about the tasting menu, we had dinner there once in May and it was wonderful. I don't think you can go wrong here. Make sure you have a reservation.

Opened in 2006 by 8 time James Beard Award Nominee, Chef James Campbell Caruso.
La Boca has the feel of a lively European wine bar, featuring an extensive selection of carefully chosen Mediterranean and South American wines. Knowledgeable and animated staff graciously guide customers to the perfect wine to complement their meals. La Boca also prides itself on being an ambassador of Spanish sherry culture, transporting its guests to Cadiz in the crisp cool flavors of Fino, or the deep fig-essence of a Pedro Ximenez.
Full to capacity almost every night since its opening, La Boca has been a hit with both locals and the world travelers that visit Santa Fe. La Boca has earned numerous awards both local and national, including the Santa Fe Reporter’s “Restaurant of the Year,” and the International Wine and Food Society’s “Award of Excellence.”
