Food was amazing, Hanna, our server was superb! The restaurante could do without the hostess working there tonight- funny how a first impression could make you dislike a place. Thank God for Hanna and the most amazing food!

La Boca is always delicious! We did the tasting menu and were not disappointed. Such a large variety of food, and THEN you receive your steaks, which are always perfect. Always a great meal!

La boca is always a dependable great meal. Service and food were awesome. WE decided last minute to go to dinner. WE were able to get a reservation no problem. Food was delicious and hot as expected. Definitely share a steak and get the sides. The fries and asparagus are awesome.

Party of 4 for a business dinner. The good 1st. We all ordered the prix fixe. This was a great value, plenty of food and the steaks were excellent. Now, 2 issues. 3 of us arrived at our reservation time and requested to be seated. We were told not until our 4th arrived. I asked for an exception since we were at a convention all day ... on our feet all day. No exception! I understand why restaurants don't want to tie up tables but there were plenty o f open tables at this time. Next issue was our meal came with empanadas. For the 4 of us we were provided 1 each of 2 different types. These were easy to split in half but not in fourths so we had to negotiate who would get to taste which. Neither of these were big issues, just a bit annoying. If they did not occur, a 5 star forsure.

My wife and I really enjoyed the whole dining experience. Our server was excellent. She provided just the right amount of attention. My wife ordered the Hanger steak and I chose the Kobe sirloin. Never had a better steak anywhere. We live at Clearwater Beach, Fl. and have ample opportunity to dine at Bern's steakhouse in Tampa. The steaks are better at la Boca. Plan to dine here anytime we are lucky to be in New Orleans. Thanks to La Boca. Made our Anniversary a real dinner to remember.

La Boca is my new FAVORITE restaurant! I love steak and this steakhouse is AWESOME! We have been 5 times now and it never fails to be perfect! The steaks are cooked to perfection and are delicious! Not only is the steak great but the gnocchi is primo!!! Best I've had! You can't go wrong with the grilled Argentine Cheese in the sizzling skillet and the flash fried Brussels Sprouts to accompany your meal! You will not be disappointed!!!

Had a 12 oz bone-in filet I had to send back b/c it was way under cooked. For a filet, it was extremely fatty. I would never order it again. Grilled asparagus was good as too were the dipping sauces. Overall, a pleasant restaurant with great service, but it's a steakhouse. The steak was terrible...

The service was friendly and knowledgeable and the food prep was exceptional. The only negative was the surly manager. Really need a less dour and more hospitable manager/greeter. I've had more upbeat greetings at funeral homes. He didn't seem to like his job and it showed.

The Gaucho plate was a great place to start. Every different kind/cut of meat we ordered was different tasting, always delicious, and never disappointing. Our waitstaff was very attentive. It was an awesome experience. I can't wait to go back.

We had such a nice time. We recommended La Boca to our friends and 8 of them were up for their first visit. The food and service were incredible (as usual) and I think the amaro flight was the highlight for everyone. Although it's difficult not to consider everything a highlight. Thanks for making a already special evening even more special!

Made reservations for 5. When we arrived a very rude man took us to what looked like a two top with 5 chairs. The restaurant was half-empty. When we asked if we could get a table where we could have a bit more room, we were told no -- this is what we have for you. We told the very rude gentlemen we were going to leave if he was unable to seat us at a proper table. He responded rudely and with a smile on his face told us he hoped we could find what we were looking for. We left and had a excellent dinner at a restaurant just down the street. I travel constantly and eat with customers on a regular basis. I can't remember a time when I encountered someone who could care less about service. In all of my travels, I have never witnessed the disrespect we were shown. There are many find restaurants in New Orleans we never got a chance to find out if the food was good. They failed us before that could happen.

Horrible experience. Had my husbands birthday dinner there, several of our friends had just gotten done fasting for the Jewish holiday and they would not allow us to order food until the last member of our party arrived, who was stuck behind a New Orleans parade. Then, after 3 hours of eating and drinking and a 600 bill, they threatened to force us to leave if my other friend continued to look as though he was falling asleep. He is a surgeon who just got done taking call and was trying to see his friend for a few hours on his birthday! I can't believe this place makes money, we will never ever go back.

The good- The gaucho plate is delicious and chimichurri sauce is outstanding. My ribeye was cooked perfectly.

However, Husband's Entraña Fina con la Pie was burnt and over cooked. Waiter exact words were "crispy and medium rare." My husband was not pleased, he tried to get the Waiter's attention but he was very busy with the large party of ladies next to us. You would think the Manager would help the waiter to check on his table but nothing. Sadly, by the time the waiter came to check on us we were ready to leave. Fries looked like they were the bottom of the batch- lots of small cuts. You may want to re-size your portion and price accordingly. Although the waiter did a great job of multi tasking, we were disappointed he didn't bring out bread with our appetizer. He mention that he usually doesn't bring out bread when people order the gaucho plate because its too much food- let us make that decision. We wanted the full experience but were left with a short handed.
