People who love food love Santa Fe dining. Here, food is an art form designed to stimulate all the senses through flavor, aroma, texture and presentation. The Inn and Spa at Loretto celebrates the art of food in New Mexican tradition by presenting Santa Fe's only "Conscious Cuisine" dining experience. Our culinary team uses the very freshest local and organic ingredients, because we strongly support our community, purchase fruits, vegetables, and spices from local farmers and prime grades of meat from regional ranchers. Specializing in "Conscious Cuisine," Luminaria's menu focuses on a truly sustainable approach to cuisine.

We popped in for an after-dinner cocktail and ended up getting the Berkshire Pork Belly,while sitting at the bar. Luminary staff know their food and their wine. While we don't usually go for "creative" cocktails, we did and were quite impressed.

We are well travelled, local foodies and wine connaisseurs who have eaten at Luminaria a number of times. Each time, we were disappointed with the quality of the food and the high prices. In spite of this, we gave it another try. This time we are writing a review of our experience. At lunch the dining room had few patrons... More

After excellent reviews on TripAdvisor, I booked this restaurant for Valentine's Day dinner. Despite it seeming to be of less value than the regular menu, we elected to go with the set Valentine's menu. We quickly regretted that decision. I chose the seabass option and my partner chose the steak option for the main course. The salads were arugula based,... More

My friend and I brought out teenage daughters here for Valentine's Day dinner. The restaurant has a super nice " vibe" starting with the hostess desk. The lamb that 3 out of 4 of us had in a fig sauce was delicious. Really nice evening. I guess the only thing that bothered us a little was that when we wanted... More

I have eaten at Luminaria several times, and it's always just about perfect. The service is professional, polite, proper, quick and friendly. The food is consistently excellent. The dining room, and the beautiful outdoor patio in the summer, are perfect. No complaints. Great place!

We stayed at the Inn for one night just before leaving to go to Washington D.C. for a year. We happen to live down the street, but wanted to keep the house clean for our guests who were coming to stay during a house exchange. We were treated well. The food in the restaurant was well worth coming back for.... More

For a special occasion or immersion into the Santa Fe vibe, you can't beat Luminaria. It will taste great and it is a very cozy, very romantic place. The outdoor seating in summer is great.
