About
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

My sister brought me to La Boca--one of her favorite restaurants in Santa Fe. They are known for tapas, and we ordered 6 different plates. They're great for sharing, along with wonderful wines. The little plates were all tasty, especially the artichokes and the eggplant....More

This is one of the best tapas restaurants in Santa Fe. The menu offerings were varied and unique. Our waiter was great. Highly recommended.

The food is mediocre and bland (Santa Fe typically delivers bland food, lacking in flavor and heat where it would be appropriate), and while the offerings are promising and varied, the paella was dull and had numerous pieces of shrimp shell hiding within the rice...More

If you've had Tapas in Spain, you'll find this inadequate. If you've had tapas in the US you'll find it average. Presentations are beautiful. The wine list is ample. The service is terrific.

This restaurant is located on the Plaza in Santa Fe. Inside is small, cozy and very inviting. I would highly recommend starting with the housemade sangria wine, followed with the Paella. They are both heaven to your taste buds.
