We were there for a private party for about 50 people, in which the hosts had rented out the entire restaurant. The food varied from delicious vegetarian dishes to braised wild boar that melted in your mouth. I would definitely go back again.

Love Apple is a quaint, intimate restaurant with excellent service and delicious, thought provoking food. The mushroom pate was absolutely incredible, as was the beet, grapefruit and avocado salad. Leave room for the oh so decadent desserts! We will certainly be back!

We were driving through the Taos valley for scenery and wildlife and ended up in Taos for dinner. We have no experience with the area so relied on a TripAdvisor rating to find The Love Apple. I'm glad we looked it up because it doesn't look like much from the outside. However, it's an incredibly charming restaurant created out of... More

We enjoyed our visit here, but were a little confused by the menu, on two sides of a card with more than three selection groups. The food is good and interesting, given the location. But in this day and age - SURELY they could take debit or credit cards!! If they are worried about the fees, simply add the 2%... More

We stayed in Taos for 7 nights and visited all the top rated restaurants. This was by far our favorite. Our bill was probably $150 for a bottle of wine and 3 courses. This restaurant in Los Angeles, would be $300 for the same meal. Romantic setting, outstanding service, interesting wine list, and incredible, intriguing food.

Very beautiful setting once you get inside. The entryway leaves a lot to be desired as it appears that you enter through the kitchen. Very nice hostesses, waiters, servers. Incredibly knowledgeable about wine. The food was wonderfully elegant and delicious. Be prepared to pay with cash or check as they do not accept debit or credit cards. Rather expensive.

The setting is beautiful, the waitress was fantastic, but the food was just okay for the price. The lamb chops were delicious, but there was very little meat on the bone. The corn muffins were average. My husband indicated the elk did not live up to its price tag, and the portion was small. Unfortunately, my husband left hungry; yet,... More
