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.”

Went here with high expectations and was disappointed. Kale salad was, to be kind, bland. Robert Levine would have spit it out..did anybody taste it before they served it? Just olive oil,a few baked garlic pieces and chick peas in what looked like clippings from a bush outside. Ok it was TERRIBLE! Skewered pork was overlooked, inexcusable. The "pour" of wine was an inch and a half. I won't be back.

The tapas menu was creative and very satisfying. The list of accompanying sherries was a real treat. Our reservation was too early to enjoy the specials that showed up later that evening on the board, but we enjoyed absolutely everything we ordered and will definitely plan to return if we have the chance.

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.

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.
