This is the place for a business or formal dinner. Service is excellent and the steaks are cooked to your selection. The ribeye never disappoints and their sides are enough for two. The wine list is the best in the city with a large selection. Indoor outdoor patio bar is usually cool enough to enjoy dinner with a date.

I have been several times, and have not really been disappointed. I usually get beef- tried the steaks and prime rib a few times, and I have to say, it probably is the best place to get a steak meal in the RGV. The table bread is good, the salads are also pretty good. I enjoy the red wines and... More

For the last 12 years I have been enjoying this place. The food is great! In my opinion is just the right portion, their cucumber martini has the perfect balance of tart and sweet. I think their best quality is the service, it is just amazing. It is definitely my favorite restaurant in McAllen.

Santa Fe is one of the best restaurants in the Upper Rio Grande Valley. The appetizers are great, the lobster bisque is delicious, and the service is superb. This is a great place to go.

Santa Fe has been the go-to place for a great steak/special occasion/business dinner for the past decade. Never had a bad meal here. Wine and service are impeccable.

I wondered in on a Saturday evening about 40 mins before closing. I chose to sit at the bar on the side with live music. The bar staff was extremely professional, ready to assist with recommendations, and never once rushed me even as the kitchen came close to closing. As a restaurant professional of 18 years - I have a... More

I travel a great deal and this was my second visit. Its an upper scale restaurant with very reasonable pricing. The first time I dined in their outside garden area. Although by myself, it was a very nice romantic environment. This time I chose to dine inside since it was about 45° due to the very unusual Arctic cold front.... More
