Excellent food and service. The only thing we didn't like was that the bread was cold and the amount of ice cream in the afogado was minimal...basically one tbsp.

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.

The best ribeye steak we ever had! So tasty and cooked perfect. Bread and olive oil was nice with drinks before dinner. The 3 steak sauces were all good ... green garlic sauce, red bell pepper sauce, and a white horseradish sauce. Some steak weights are heavy so you can certainly split an entree and get more sides. Fries were delicious. The tropical salad and vegetables were yummy too. I almost got scallops so something for everyone, not just meat eaters!

LaBoca never fails to deliver. My youngest son and two business associates and I had dinner while in town, and they ht another home run. All four of us ordered different cuts and shared, and I've have trouble picking a favorite. The winner, maybe by the narrowest, was the flank with the skin, but each one was super and perfectly cooked to order. This continues to be one of the top steakhouses I've ever dined at, largely because of their presentation of less common cuts, and their ability to highlight the flavor. I can't even tell you how their filet or strip taste, I'm always ordering a cut I can't get anywhere else. Highly recommended

We tried this place out since a good friend recommended it. We haven't been disappointed since. Steaks are always cooked perfectly, service is excellent. The grilled cheese on the hot skillet grill is amazing. The empanadas are so good, sometimes they have a trio special. We needed recommendation on a wine. The manager came to us and explained the wines and which would be best for what taste we were looking for. Can't wait to go back.

The vibe in this restaurant is great and the steaks were terrific. We had a late party of 6 that turned into a party of 7 and were accommodated easily. The waiters were very cool in the saddle and genuine (these days lots of wait staff are annoying and make you uncomfortable). We had such a good time that we lost track of it and were the last table. They probably wanted to start shutting down a lot sooner but they were very polite and patient. They didn't have everyone's first choice of beer, but the alternatives were of equal quality and fit their style. This is a well quality controlled establishment that I appreciate.
