Small plates, tapas dining. Not bad from a taste perspective. It's small and loud. Service is good. Prices were silly for tiny portions. Touristy clientele. There are better places to spend your money.

A return visit to this very popular tapas restaurant. Was totally packed as usual but were seated promptly. The tight space with closely spaced tables makes a very “European” dining experience. Wine selection is good with strong showing for Spanish appellations including Spanish Rioja whites...More

The wines are excellent, and the food is equally great. It's a bit pricey, but worth it if you want to be spoiled. Happy hour is worth turning up for, the wine is much cheaper.

We were seated in the back side, in the taberna, on a Friday night. The food was great. The Spanish guitarist was immensely entertaining. The crowd was loud and fun. It was a terrific evening. If you want boring, it won’t be your place. We’ll...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.”
