Amazing food and service. Wine was perfectly paired with our tapas. Roberto and Chico took care of us.
Always good food. Tables are a bit close but otherwise no complaints
My husband and I have visited La Boca more times than I can recall, always enjoying the food and the service. Our most recent experiences have soured my opinion and I don't think I'll go back. The last time we tried to eat there, my husband made a reservation through OpenTable, but somehow our reservation was bumped to their back-door restaurant, Taverna La Boca. Also a fine restaurant, but not the same. When you want La Boca, you want La Boca. This time we were clued in to this very under-handed trick; my husband called to confirm my OpenTable reservation, and sure enough, they had already bumped us over (without telling us, either time). He corrected this error, and when we walked in the door to La Boca, we were seated in the correct restaurant. Thanks, guys.
Once seated, we got the stink-eye for not ordering alcohol. What gives? Why not develop an awesome non-alcoholic menu of mocktails instead of banking on this falsehood that every patron wants to get trashed off your wine list? Our waiter was nice enough, but he sure didn't waste any time on our table, and god forbid you commit the mortal sin of ordering a side of bread to go with your meal. How absolutely gauche.
In the end, I guess we do belong in the stables with the rest of the commoners. Leave the big boy restaurant to the Texans.
Has been a go-to when in Santa Fe for the last 10 years. Sorely disappointed this time (& last July). Menu selections reduced and bottled wine very expensive. The food we had (beet salad & paella) was good, but we felt options were so limited. Server not overly attentive, but did check in on us to see if we needed anything. Actually, the bus staff was great!! Since the place is very small, its tempting to interject oneself into the conversations of those at tables on either side!!! Ha ha. Being disappointed in the last two visits, we decided we would probably not return on our next time in Santa Fe and go to one of the other Tapas restaurants in town.
I love this restaurant!! My wife and I go every chance we get.
This is our favorite restaurant in Santa Fe. The food is excellent, great wine list, and excellent service every time
As always Austin and Maria were there to provide wonderful service. Our friends, who had never been, had a great time.
We were that 3:00 3 top that you fear seating between proper services. It could have been horrible but nothing else was open.
Freaking Hooray for us. This was an amazing lunch and la Boca is a first rate tapas restaurant. The service was knowledgeable and efficient and as on point as you would expect at 6:45 on a Friday night.
The blood orange sangria was complexly refreshing and enjoyable. The plates were perfect and much bread was employed in soaking up sauces. The gambas ajillo were spot on and a good time was had by all.
Do NOT pass this place up.
Especially if it’s Happy Hour.
Our restaurant reservation was honored even though we were very late in arriving due to unforeseen air travel delays. Thank you to the wonderful staff for that. The Flamenco music was entertaining and very good. My only criticism was that the lighting could have been turned down a tad. Atmosphere didn’t feel as cozy as it could have been. Food was delicious and service was perfect.
We came an hour early hoping to sit at the bar until our reservation at 7:15. However the hostess said our table was ready and sat us right away. Dinner was great but conversation was difficult with the guitarist in the same room. We were asked to give up the table around 8 pm. It seemed unfair but since we got there early I was okay with it.
We enjoyed this restaurant for food and ambiance. It did get very noisy at times.
Perfection! Great service, great musician, great space, great food. Thank you!
The best Paella in New Mexico.. bread is outstanding. Just wish the place was a bit larger
Amazing food. Wonderful service!
