Soup was great. Veggie plate special, think mezza plate, was a hit with others. Everything was just a little different, but really good.

This tapas place has a large menu and wine list. We tasted grilled artichoke with a delicious goat cheese. The Paiea in the small portion was very generous and featured beautifully cooked mussels, chicken and chorizo.

A must stop for interesting Tapas and spanish cuisine. A fun atmosphere which seemed like mostly locals. The menu was interesting and the presentation was as beautiful as the artists in the area would create.

I booked what turned out to be a relatively late table (8.30pm), and the place was packed with happy-looking people when I arrived. There was a manageable level of noise in the restaurant, but I don't mind that - it was clear that this place is popular, and deservedly so. Despite the space being small, I did not feel like...

Absolutely delicious tapas, featuring local farm products in many cases. The wine list was impressive, but I went for the blood orange Sangria, and was glad I did. The wait staff were friendly and well informed, and the room has a cozy, homey feel. Not cheap, but a real treat.

Broad menu selection of a variety of tapas all excellently prepared and presented. The wait staff is very knowledgeable and responded to all our questions. Seating is a little cramped, but, if you are lucky, as we were, to have a friendly couple sitting next to us you can make new friends and enjoy a table-side conversation. If you like... More

Tapas were amazing. Wines were great. Happy hour from 3-5 is a bargain. If you're going there for dinner, make a reservation. It's a small place, it's popular and gets packed. Welcoming, professional service staff. Completely recommend!

This is maybe the best tapas restaurant we've been to, including recent visits to Barcelona and Madrid. The selections are varied, from calamari so succulent that you can't believe how tenderly and gently it was prepared. But the standout dishes are the fresh from the farmers market vegetables - the patatas, the brussel sprouts, cauliflower, all really terrific. Cava is... More

This restaurant is not large so go off hours or make a reservation. We went off hours so we were able to get seating for 4 and 1/2. Our Server made suggestions and we also ordered off the menu. For myself, I think I like their tapa selection better than anything here in Texas as well as Seville and Toledo,... More

Spanish tapas (served from 3-5) after an afternoon of colonial history were wonderful. The chef carefully prepares each dish.

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."
