Perfectly prepared steaks. The appetizers were delicious, service outstanding and the side dishes perfect. We actually were trying to get into another restaurant and couldn't and by default stumbled onto this restaurant. but We're so happy we did. What a gem...we'll be back

We live out of town and save La Boca for special occasions. This visit was a disappointment. Our waitress tried 3 times to tell us the two steak specials and could not remember them. When we finally ordered - we ordered our steaks cooked medium and when we cut into them there was no pink. When we were ready to leave the lady at the door told us that if she called us a taxi it would take about 40 minutes so we should just go outside and try to flag one down. Very unprofessional !!! I hate to write negative reviews but after spending almost $200 dollars for this meal I feel the whole experience should have been as it was in past visits.

The Steak was so tough we could barely cut it with a knife. The server offered to get the manager, as she could see how bad it was. We told her she could bring the steaks to show the manager but we did not want them coming to our table to make a scene. We each only ate 2 bites of it . We got our bill and it was not taken off. We won’t be going back😞the mashed potatoes were excellent, wine was excellent, Brussels sprouts were covered in vinegar(not very good), the server was excellent, very knowledgeable and attentive, yet obviously did not share the info about the awful steaks.

I frequently go here because it is the best steak in town. It's not floating in butter like other steak houses. However I always over order and when you ask for a larger table it is like pulling teeth. On more than one occasion I have tried to explain I need more space and was told no while looking at other 4tops with 2 people. If I am spending the same as 4 people they should accommodate me. The place was empty when I asked. I won't be going back for a while.

Had a wonderful overall experience.
This was our second time here, first being at their original location. Made reservations for boyfriend's birthday dinner. We had arrived about 5 minutes before the reservation and table was not yet ready so they told us we could wait at the bar. But there were alot of tables open so I am guessing they just wanted to get us started with drinks at the bar first, which we did not mind. Our table was right next to two big parties, so it was slightly loud for a date night, but other than that the food and service was excellent. The french fries were absolutely addicting and of course the steaks were cooked to perfection. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Great location with valet parking and a great ambiance.

Food and service were excellent overall. Drinks and food possibly a little over valued for what you get but you are also paying for the location and quality of service. BL, I recommend it.

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!!!

 (Baltimore)·Dined on November 2, 2017

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.
