I rarely rate any restaurant a 5, this being the exception. Extremely enjoyable meal. Had the 14-oz. ribeye, baked potato, salad, and creme brûlée. One of the top three steak experiences ever. Companion's meals were just as spectacular. Meal prices were upscale and service was very attentive. Stonily encourage you to give this restaurant a try.

We spent a week in McAllen for business, and had good dining experiences, but this was by far the best of the week. I ordered the filet oscar. Served to perfection and covered in a lump crabmeat hollandaise sauce. Served over asparagus with onion strings. It was a great fusion of flavor. I also ordered the twice baked potato served...

NFtraveler2014 said it best. WOW, this is a very expensive and "black tie" steak place. If you want to spend at least $40 for a steak and dinner salad then this is the place for you. But, that does not include any sides or drink. The food was average but not for the traveling, working person.

The food was fine, but not $40 a plate good. Holy cow! I wasn't buying the place. If you're practical and have common sense, skip this place. Food never impresses me that much! I could make several meals for my family for the money I spent here.

Santa Fe is a fine steakhouse and certainly one of the Valley's top restaurants. Refined decor and inviting courtyard a draw, besides excellent wine selection and prime beef.

Tucked away in corner of a small plaza, SANTA FE is quite a HAPPENING PLACE! You'll enter thru a very ROMANTIC Patio where you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine while you wait for a table or relax enjoying your meal. Inside you'll either go to the cantina or to the left & you'll enter the restaurant where... More

We have been eating here for years. The menu is small but the cuisine is divine. Wine list for all pallets and a drink menu full of concoctions. The atmosphere is cozy especially during the cooler days. But inside or out this is a place for a date, party, anniversary or just a quick drink at the bar. It is... More
