Description: 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.”

“Good spot”
Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

We stopped for a light lunch by each ordering one item. The grilled artichokes were good as was the Morocco chicken. The wine list was extensive. Don't come here if you are in a hurry each dish is prepared when you order it. I would come back.

“Not very good”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

If you have ever been to Spain or have been to a true Spanish tapas bar, this is not for you. This was also the worst Paella I have ever had. The space was really confined and I was nearly on top of other tables.

“One of my best meals in Santa Fe”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Great food. I had the 3 course fixed price lunch - beet soup, tuna and a sampler of 3 mini desserts. My husband had the Cubano sandwich and said it was the best Cuban sandwich he ever had (and that included a restaurant in Miami). We could tell the service was going to be Mediterranean relaxed (slow), so we told the server that we had several activities planned for the afternoon and after that service speeded up. We appreciated that. We'll be back.
