The hanger steak is fabulous! I’m a filet girl but when I come here I get the hanger. Very tender and so flavorful - they know how to do a steak right! Also the Nochi is amazing - the best I’ve ever had. We return frequently because of the Nochi (gnocchi). The bread and dipping sauces are yummy and the salad was very good. The dessert was the only let down. It was the special so we wanted to try something new. No decaf cappuccino which was a bummer but we got the regular cappuccino and it was huge. The only real thing that needs to be improved is the waiter - he was not very engaging or friendly. Totally business 😐. Overall we will be back, the steak and Nochi speak for themselves !

The table was very small, so it was difficult to arrange plates and glasses in a comfortable manner. The salad with palm hearts had hardly any dressing, the hot provolone cheese in the pan was nearly cold and swimming in a lot of oil. The service was not friendly.

I will never go to New Orleans again without stopping in at La Boca. The server's presentation made it difficult for us not to choose the Wagu steak, and all 4 of us agreed that it was the BEST steak we have ever had!! It was amazing.

Meal was fantastic. Started with the upgraded provoleta with the ham and roasted red peppers and the Chorizo De La Casa. Both were excellent. Each of us got a different steak and shared amongst ourselves. Each one was perfectly cooked and unique. Wine list is all Argentinian and diverse despite that. Service was excellent. Our server was entertaining but attentive even while also haveing a large group as another table.

I got the 28oz Bone-in Ribeye with a side of fries. The steak was well cooked and really juicy. The fries are a smaller cut and seasoned with garlic and herbs which makes it perfect side for a huge steak.

Special occasion with the wife. Team based service ensures that if ANYONE on the staff thinks you need attention, you get it. The best steaks I've ever had, every time. Wine list is very good and included some varietals I wasn't familiar with. Was asked what I like and explained the character of the ones in question in a friendly, conversational manner without any pomp or pretension. I need to visit more often.

Always an excellent dining experience. Have been here several times for both special occasions and just when we want a good steak. One of the best steaks in the city. And excellent side dishes. Our waitress was wonderful, very friendly and easy going.

Their steaks are divine. Nothing beats a medium rare steak grilled right with the perfect char on the outside.

First off food was great and the service was excellent. Had a reservation and was seated immediately. The valet parking was also nice to have. There was so much going on in the city that night and to have the valet service was very helpful.

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.
