Great tapas place everything was incredible. Try the sangria and the artichokes. A wee bit on the pricey side but there was live music and the food was worth it for a special occasion. Tucked a bit off the beaten path but well worth the hide and seek.

We visited La Boca on a weeknight for dinner because of the high TA rating but were disappointed. Reservations are required to avoid a long wait, even on a weeknight. We were promptly seated at a table at the center of the room near the west wall which unfortunately became the exact spot where the guitarist performed later. The tapas... More

Visiting friends in Santa Fe and we visited this centrally located gem. The fried eggplant, brussel sprouts and peach salad were delicious. Everything smelled and tasted fantastic and there were many options. If I lived here I'd visit often.

We arrived in time for happy hour and were seated in the delightful and quiet patio outside. Superb flavors were in every tapas we ordered--wine suggestions by our waiter were all perfect. We filled up on the tapas and wine; enjoyed the garden venue and relaxed our way into our first night in Santa Fe. A real find and well... More

We did a quick "Near me now" trip advisor. What a great find La Boca! The Food was over the top excellent. The atmosphere and music was perfect. The service was friendly and professional, even offered to decant my ginger ale. How great is that. I'd go back great evening great value!

Amazing Paella! The best I ever had and the fact that my mother is from Spain and makes it annually for family and friends, with high reviews says a lot. I ordered the small one. It can definitely feed two. Cute little dining area, but very small. I'm guessing, that they probably couldn't host two parties of 6-8 at a... More

We love the food and ambiance here. They have added a new outdoor dining space since our last visit, though we did not eat outside. Great small plates. We had fried eggplant. Melon gazpacho. Chicken skewers and several others. Three apiece filled us up. Coconut pannacotta for dessert was terrific. Plan ahead. They are busy.

My wife and I like to try different restaurants while we visit Santa Fe. This was one of the best service experiences we have ever had. Great food, and neat location. We will be back.

Monday night in Santa Fe tends to be industry night, meaning many of the restaurants are closed after the weekend and the Monday we were there was post Indian Market so the weekend was crazy I am sure - I was there for business with colleagues and wanted a quaint quintessential Santa Fe dinner, since it was a first for...

We had some really good small plates - the sauce that is served with the dates stuffed with bacon is to die for! Also had the beet salad and the melon gazpacho which were both very good. Place is small and fills up quickly so make a reservation. Nice guitar player as well.

Thank COsporter
