Delicious appetizers, creative presentation, attentive waiters, fabulous wine selections, fantastic bar, indoor and outdoor seating available. Private rooms are perfect for small parties or meetings. Piano player in the restaurant and band in the bar are always good. Tonight we enjoyed the pianist on the baby grand during dinner and the music of "Tank" for after dinner drinks and coffee... More

Santa Fe has been around for many years now and the improvements are noticeable. Wait staff is attentive, food is delicious, and the bar drinks are tasty. My only peave is the parking, it is limited or you have to pay to valet.

We were told about this place by one of the locals...and it didn't disappoint. From its tucked away entrance, beautiful patio, softly lit interior, gorgeous grand piano (sure wish we could've experienced that), wonderfully attentive & knowledgeable staff, to amazing finish with outstanding food!!! The baked orange roughy served table side from a cracked terra cotta pot is a must... More

What I love most about this place is that the service and food are always consistently over the top. Dining al fresco in the patio area is the perfect place for me and my martini to unwind with the people who matter. It's my weekly treat, and I only treat myself to the best! Though I know it's a steak... More

Beautiful venue, experienced staff conscious of the environment the serve... Elegant and fancy. The food was glorious, wonderful tuna tartar and the French fillet a remarkable celebration of French cuisine... At the end creme brûlée to top a wonderful dinner. Yet: please don't go to the bar, the bartender definitely hates his job and furthermore: any costumer. By the way:... More

Three couples had an outstanding surprise birthday dinner for my wife. The three bottles of Sterling cab were among the least expensive, but were excellent. The mini beef wellington and artichoke dip were terrific appetizers, The salads were delicious, and the steaks and seafood were superb. We had not tipped off the staff that this was a birthday dinner because... More

We too were turned away from the "fine" dining area as we had shorts on. Really?? Never mind I had a nice linen shirt on and my husband had a collar shirt on. It was 5:00 and no one else in there. We were escorted to the bar where we were allowed to eat off the same full priced menu.... More
