Went there Monday night and first off was disappointed that the advertised live guitar music did not happen. If you are expecting this, call first to confirm. As for the food, the alcochofas were outstanding, as were the tacos de la baca. Amazing flavors! Pincho de pollo good. The wine was great, though I didn't care much for the sherry... More

The portions here are very small. The food is good but really to have lunch and leave with hunger is not my kind of restaurant. The restaurant is pricey and Spanish cuisine tasty but too expensive to go away hungry.

We visited for dinner having high hopes for some great tapas. We left disappointed and not wanting tapas again for awhile. The prices were high and the menu left little to choose from. There were individual bites that were great but paired with other elements that destroyed the whole plate. Our concierge had reserved us as VIPs and were seated... More

We stumbled in, hot and tired, towards the end of happy hour on a Saturday afternoon. Two hours later we emerged, refreshed and replete, calm and happy, taste buds a-tingle with the succession of glorious flavors to which they had been treated. Guided by an exceptionally helpful waiter, we started with the kale caesar salad, which sparkled with kale that... More

We had dinner at La Boca on a recent visit to Santa Fe. The restaurant came highly recommended by a couple we met on our trip. Tables are quite close together but service was prompt. Our server guided us through the wine list and made good recommendations. We shared multiple appetizers. The boquerones were fresh and the lemon zest was... More

During our stay this was our favorite dinner. As with many places in town reservations are strongly recommended. This also came recommended to us by hostess at another restaurant. There are two locations: one directly on Marcy and another off of a courtyard off of Marcy. We made a reservation thinking we were going to be at the one on... More

We stumbled onto this tiny tapas restaurant and, after having lunch there, decided to come back for dinner. Both meals were excellent. It's a tiny place so reservations are suggested. The serrano ham is fabulous. We enjoyed about 6 different dishes and each one was terrific, including dessert. If you want a nice diversion from Southwestern cuisine while in Santa... More

Met friends for dinner and enjoyed a great touch of Spain here in Santa Fe. Easily compares to the best of Barcelona. Service was excellent, live music was most enjoyable, and wine and feed were "muy sabroso." Loved the aioli on the bravas, grilled artichokes were tender and delicious, as was the flat iron steak. My tacos with shrimp were... More

Stopped for appetizers as part of the New Mexico Food Tour. We dined on glazed salmon served over polenta with a side of asparagus. The food was tasty - but nothing extraordinary or outstanding. Good.

With the feel of a lively European wine bar, La Boca also features 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."
