My guest had eaten there a couple of days earlier and raved about it. We decided to go there and were impressed. I would eat there again the next time I’m in New Orleans.

I would have give them 5 star without a problem. The Provoleta was very good and well presented, the meat, we had the Vacio, was tender and full of taste and worth going back. Unfortunately I got a bad surprise when I ordered the empanadas. Great flavor but they were reheated and not cooked at the order time, hence they were dry and not very good. I told my server and I hope they are going to remedy. Anyway a great place and I’ll go back.

I went for the different cuts of meat rather than the standard steak cuts. Had the skirt steak with skin. Was good, not excellent. Others had sirloin and filet - again was good, nothing exceptional Had the gaucho plate - while the sausage and empanada was good the sweetbreads were over done.

WAY WAY overpriced. Especially for butcher cuts of meat such as flank and hanger.
Too noisy and limited.

Will not be back with so many other quality steak places in NOLA. Save your money and gone elsewhere

La Boca is unique in it's protein selections. You can play it safe, but don't. Stretch your culinary experience to enjoy the sweetbreads or the skirt steak con el piel (with the skin). Finger licking good. Great wine selections to wash down your meal. Don't miss the empanadas and the gaucho plate (sampler).

Went here for a birthday celebration looking for a great steak that wasn't one of the New Orleans steakhouses we've been to before. Was really looking for Kobe beef, but willing to settle for American Wagyu. The place is nice and charming enough with a helpful wait staff. We chatted at the bar over cocktails while we waited on our table as we showed up a bit early for our reservation. Once seated we were helped with a wine selection and a rundown of the specials. They were talking up an American Kobe offering as one of the specials. For the informed, true Kobe is from Japan. These folks are peddling American Wagyu. I don't have a problem with that since I know better, and expected it was be as good as the last A-5 Wagyu we had. We ordered it ans a skirt steak to move away a bit from the traditional cuts. We did appetizers first. The grilled provolone was pretty darned good, but you have to eat it pretty quick. Despite being served in a small cast iron skillet, it still cools rapidly and starts to set up. We followed that with the meat empanada which was a little drier than I expected and milder than I expected. Perhaps I don't know jack about Argentina. The steaks came out and things went a bit downhill. The so called Kobe was a disappointment. I've had $30 steaks elsewhere that put this to shame. The skirt steak was just okay. Good enough, easy to forget. Luckily we had ordered the La Boca fries, which on the hand hand, were really good, and s special chanterelle mushroom dish. The mushrooms were good. I cook these at home and expected a different group of seasonings since this is an Argentine style place. I was hoping for something more exotic tasting. Not mentioned yet are the table sauces. The red spicy style and chimchurri helped lend enough interest to the skirt steak to finish it. Our waiter's advice on a Malbec was spot on. We enjoyed it. For dessert we had caramel filled crepes. Very good, although it looked rather plain on the dish. Likely will not return.

La Boca is always spot on and wonderful. Three of us went for dinner and some wine prior to going to see live music close by. We were able to share some apps and steaks and wine and sides and everything was perfect. So perfect! If you haven't been, go! They have the absolute best steaks in New Orleans.
I forgot to use my gift certificate I won in a raffle so I'm glad to be going back soon!!
