My wife and I, in for dinner. Good Malbec wine, good Provoleta appetizer - grilled cheese, olive oil, oregano, with bread. Usually I go for ribeyes, but decided on the flank steak. My wife, normally a filet person, was persuaded by our waiter - a monk-like but quite compelling and charming chap - to try the hanger steak. Both meats... More

We had the tasting menu for 10 people. Food was great! The filet and ribeye were fantastic. Restaurant staff needs improvement, New Orleans is all about hospitality.

This is the third time at this restaurant, first time in the new digs, which are very nice. I had a fabulous 20 oz boneless ribeye (although I ordered it very rare, it was not uniform in its cooking). The house-made sausage is amazing. My dining partner made good use of the very friendly sommelier, who brought him a sampling... More

I went there recently only because a group of friends was meeting and one was treating us all to dinner. I am a vegetarian, so I wasn't keen on dining there, having perused the menu online before we went. I was pleasantly surprised when they fixed me a plate of nice pasta with vegetables. It wasn't special, although to be... More

Why complain when the obvious is so ignored? This eatery makes you think that the parents are out of town and the children and their pals are running the place. Sorry that seems harsh, but seriously in a competitive field you really need to work on your game? If you're spending $9.00 for the salad maybe you should think about... More

Nice atmosphere, great service. But you have to like steak. You get to choose your steak knife...you know it is serious. The fries are nice as are the brussel sprouts as are the empanadas, yes...they are meat in them. However, the only other thing on the menu is steak and scallops.

My husband and I shared the bone in ribeye (it's huge). It was the finest piece of beef I've ever had. It was perfectly seasoned and melt in your mouth tender. I also had the arugula and beet salad which was delicious. We had the flourless chocolate torte for dessert. It tastes like truffles--it was decadent. Even the coffee was... More

What a wonderful experience, everything I expected and more. There are not enough adjectives to adequately describe the quality, taste and overall appearance of their steaks. What a treat, perfectly cooked. The sides were great and complimented the entrees perfectly. The Argentinians sure know what to do with grapes. We had a table of eight and the service was fantastic,... More

I had a great meal at LaBoca. There were two of us. Our appetizer was Argentinian cheese in a skillet. It was absolutely delicious! We scraped up every morsel with the yummy bread. I got a filet and my son got a rib eye. Both were cooked to perfection. I was surprised that the filet was bone in, but that... More

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighbourhood Profile
Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
