This restaurant features an eclectic tapas menu. The seafood soup and paella were both quite good, altho the chorizo's tough texture rendered it inedible. The brussel sprouts were good. However, the bruschetta was a small slice of bread drowned below cheesy mushrooms and a fried egg, with no visual appetite appeal. The pincho de pollo portion was ridiculously small, even... More

Made a last minute Open Table reservation for party of 3. Went to the tapas room right on Marcy and was told they had us in the Taberna room - a 1 minute walk away. Same menu, bigger space. And as a bonus singer/guitarist on small stage. Small plates and a nice wine list by glass and bottle. You can... More

This is my go to restaurant in Santa Fe. Every thing is good. One of favorites is the pro belly. The chef does use a lot of food produced in New Mexico.

You definitely need a reservation for this place! We went on a Sunday evening and were very glad that we had a reservation. The space is small so it feels like European dining where you are very close to your neighboring tables, which we didn't mind. They had live music which was lovely and we enjoyed the sangria which was... More

Vanilla walls, no art, cramped tables and very draughty. WE were a party of 3 for tapas, desert+coffee. All was vanilla except for the bill which was close to $100! Too bad, but we don't have to repeat that visit.

We went here on Xmas eve and it was a fun evening. Fun to order several small dishes and share. The waiter steered us toward some of the restaurant specialties. Really liked the sangria and the paella!

This is a very good tapas restaurant. Not the best ever, and a bit overpriced. But a very nice option for mixing things up if you need a break from southwestern fare.

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."
