Decent Food

Absolutely beautiful dining room and attached cafe dining room in gorgeous hotel; however just ok food. Not bad, and if you are staying here at hotel and don't mind paying resort prices, you will get a decent meal. We had breakfast and after $50+ for 2, you might expect the grapefruit juice not... read more

My husband had the 6oz filet with lobster risotto. Marvelous. I chose the chicken dish and loved it. The mashed potatoes with green chiles were excellent. The jalapeno margarita from the bar is a must have...any margarita from the bar is a must have.

I had the smoked salmon and bagel plate -- delicious. Hubby had the blue corn pancakes and loved them. They bring you a pot of coffee for the table, which is very nice..

This is one of the most beautiful restaurants in New Mexico, and our Waitperson, Tuesday was delightful. Our first surpise was if we wanted bread we needed to pay $4 for 6 pieces of baguette, which means their price piont is somewhere around at most 50 cents, with the other prices it seemed excessive. My husband ordered the Ribeye which... More

We were the only people eating at 7 but the hotel didnt seem busy. The diningroom was very nice! Our server Tammy was friendly and efficient! We tried the tuna and chicken dishes and both were very good! I hope more people try this restaurant out who aren't staying here!

Hard to believe this restaurant is only number 65 out of 110 but as it is more upscale perhaps it doesn't get the number of visitors that others do. We did think the decor was a bit much but the food was very good and our waiter Jesse was very attentive. Not a lot of diners but it was a... More

If you are charging $40 for an entree, could you at least get the spelling right? On today's lunch menu, this was "fillet minion." Misspelling "filet mignon" does not complement the upscale atmosphere that you are cultivating. That said, the macaroni and cheese was delicious.

After trying this restaurant three times for dinner, I must say it is a disappointment for a high-end hostelry. This food selections are unimaginative and not interestingly prepared. Breakfast is another story. I would stop by for breakfast even if I were not staying there as the selections are broad, well turned out and delicious. Great pancakes and omelets. Yummy... More

I don't spend a lot of time at expensive, unique style restaurants, but I was absolutely impressed by this food and was amazed by the service. It was definitely worth the price

I stayed at the hotel and enjoyed breakfast and dinner meals at De La Tierra. There was a special Valentine's Day menu for dinner, which was a little disappointing only because the regular menu looked so delicious, and the kitchen was not making items off the regular menu. Notwithstanding, I would definitely recommend this restaurant - it's beautiful, the food... More
