Great starters, especially the grilled Caesar salad and chicken tortilla soup. Lovely main dishes; the chili rellenos stuffed with mushrooms and cheese were absolutely amazing - a unique take and the best version I've ever had. Service was lovely too.

My wife and I were in Santa Fe celebrating her birthday and we had planned on dining at Luminaria on our last night in town; after a long morning of hiking at Bandolier followed by a relaxing afternoon at Ojo Caliente, we changed our plans and decided to stay in and dine at Luminaria a day early. I wish we... More

We had the early dinner course with wine pairing which is reasonably priced. It was just perfect! Service was impeccable as well. Chicken with mole sauce was excellent. The desert is very good as well. We would definitely return there next time.

We were in Santa Fe during Restaurant Week and had dinner at Luminaria. My seared tuna over green chile cheese grits was delicious. My husband had a wonderful pasta entree.

We started with a refreshing bottle of French white wine, a Chateau Ducasse Bordeaux. I decided to have the pulled pork spring roll with a chipoltle aioli and a fresh jicama slaw. I truly enjoyed this masterpiece . Pulled pork is one of my favorites. I swear I could taste the barbeque sauce in that roll. My wife had the... More

Stayed here twice but first time in the restaurant. I will return. Ordered the full American breakfast, although it came with everything, a bit pricey. They allowed me to basically build my own since I wanted neither juice coffee or toast. That's service in my book!!! I was allowed to sub a blue corn pancake and it was superb--period. Eggs... More

Ate here for Valentines day. Melissa was our server and she was excellent! Attentive, but not overbearing. They only had a set menu for dinner that night which was dissapointing. Cost started at $54 for 3 courses or $88 with wine. Looking at the prices of the wines online, this meal with wine should have been $60 at best. The... More
