The staff, service, food, and drink were outstanding, the setting lovely and sophisticated, reflecting New Mexican charm with a modern vibe. We were taken aback by the level of everything offered at this gem of a find. A highlight of our trip. Kudos to the inventive chef and kitchen for executing delicious and artistically pleasing offerings. And kudos to the wait staff for making us feel welcome and so well cared for. We will recommend this wonderful restaurant to anyone we know heading to Albuquerque. It measures up to anything we've seen internationally and on the East and West coasts.

We had a wonderful evening there with granddaughter. She said the steak was one of the best she had ever had. They asked us if it would be OK to be in a room by ourselves and we loved it. It was so nice to not have any background chatter so that we could talk with our granddaughter and not be distracted. Food and service was outstanding.

About the restaurant
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 Spanish wines and Sherries. Chef Caruso's Modern Spanish Cuisine is inspired by the exuberance of Spanish cooking combined with fresh, local ingredients. La Boca has been  called "the most influential restaurant in Santa Fe" by the Pasatiempo Magazine and the New York Times describes the menu as "modern re-inventions of classic Spanish cuisine" Knowledgeable and animated staff graciously guide guests 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 Jerez in the crisp cool flavors of Fino, or the deep fig-essence of a Pedro Ximenez.

Join us every Thursday and Friday night for live music on the Taberna main stage!

We ate at the Taberna location and there was a fantastic musical duo playing. Really good, but definitely loud. The food and service were great. Don't miss the artichokes!

About the restaurant
Originally from Mexico City, Chef Fernando Olea, formerly Chef of Epazote, has been enthralling diners in Santa Fe since 1991. Chef Olea creates sophisticated flavors using Old Mexico’s indigenous and culinary traditions alongside ingredients from around the world. His menu is deliberately small, featuring fresh and locally sourced produce and meats when possible.

Nothing evokes the mystery of Mexican cuisine more than mole, a sauce of complex flavors that usually includes toasted and ground spices, seeds, nuts, chocolate and chile. Many mole recipes contain more than thirty ingredients and some recipes have five varieties of chile alone. Chef Olea is delighted to share his moles that include his "New Mexican Mole" that he created to commemorate Santa Fe’s 400 year anniversary in 2009. The large mural in the main dining room, was painted and presented to Chef Olea by Federico Leon De La Vega, a well- known artist from Mexico City.

Wonderful food and friendly service! Had low expectations after reading some reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and variety of choices. Ending up eating here twice for dinner (once in bar area, once in dining room) and twice for breakfast during out stay.

About the restaurant
The Pink Adobe restaurant stands proudly in the heart of Santa Fe's historic Barrio De Analco neighborhood, which is considered the oldest neighborhood in the US. Founded in 1944 by Rosalea Murphy, an artist and social connector, the restaurant takes its name from the rose-colored adobe plastering on the nearly 400-year-old hacienda that serves as its home. This iconic Santa Fe destination at the heart of ​the Old Santa Fe Trail has been known for its ​fun, vibrant atmosphere and outstanding cuisine. Some of the famous well-known dishes are still existing such as the Steak Dunnigan, French Onion Soup and Hot Apple Pie among with new and innovative creations from our Executive Chef Mario de Leon.
