The food is delicious and provides a welcome change from the Southwestern and Italian fare offered at so many other Santa Fe restaurants. The food is reasonably priced, and the service is excellent. We liked the restaurant so much that we returned for a second...More

La Boca means "the mouth" in Spanish, and that's where they focus their attention at this attractive little tapas box a block from the plaza. With Andalusian guitar music wafting from the rafters, I was transported, as if by a magic carpet, to Spain. Though...More

We had our best dinner here!! The food was flavorful and prepared with much attention to detail. The shared plates make eating more fun. The service was excellent.

Creative food. The chef is really top notch. You need to order a lot of tapas to fill up. Never disappointed, yet be prepared to spend some serious money.

We did not have a reservation on a Saturday night, but were able to sit at the bar in the back courtyard part of the restaurant. They had live music, which was interesting, but entertaining. Loved the tapas and the wine! We had the bacon...More

Food was good. Service was slow. Be prepared for at least 1hr or longer supper. Tapas are good. It's a small intimate place.

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.”
