We love eating here, and we almost always take out-of-town visitors to La Boca. At our last visit, we had a delicious watermelon-tomato salad, olives that were out of this world, mushrooms montaditos, chicarrones with a delicious harissa sauce, and bacon-wrapped dates. What wonderful tastes!...More

Always wonderful to return to a restaurant after 5 years and find the same delicious food.Their tapas are varied and all top notch, so it is difficult to choose and easy to over order, because they are so good. Service was very good this time,...More

Some of the best sangria I've ever had. The seafood tacos and the bacon wrapped dates were soooo delicious. It's hard not to order too many tapas, but my advice is to go slowly. You can always order more.

This was a great choice for a glass of Crianza and a snack. The Serrano was abundant in a very generous portion. The artichokes, eggplant, olives, and anchovies were all delicious and in creative combinations.

We were walking around Friday evening looking for an outdoor venue and came across La Boca's outdoor entrance. There was a musician playing guitar and the crowd inside was lively. We took a chance to see if we could get in and they gave us...More

Anytime they have anchovies as an appetizer - do It! Was in town too early to reward my body with an excellent meal this month. So you don't miss out. Reservations are a must. A favorite of locals and those who like the smaller cafe...More

I don't know about the tasting menu, we had dinner there once in May and it was wonderful. I don't think you can go wrong here. Make sure you have a reservation.

Opened in 2006 by 8 time James Beard Award Nominee, Chef James Campbell Caruso.
La Boca has the feel of a lively European wine bar, featuring an extensive selection of carefully chosen Mediterranean and South American wines. Knowledgeable and animated staff graciously guide customers to the perfect wine to complement their meals. La Boca also prides itself on being an ambassador of Spanish sherry culture, transporting its guests to Cadiz in the crisp cool flavors of Fino, or the deep fig-essence of a Pedro Ximenez.
Full to capacity almost every night since its opening, La Boca has been a hit with both locals and the world travelers that visit Santa Fe. La Boca has earned numerous awards both local and national, including the Santa Fe Reporter’s “Restaurant of the Year,” and the International Wine and Food Society’s “Award of Excellence.”
