Timeless authenticity and robust flavors round out the palate of this truly unique Santa Fe dining experience.

Our first night in Santa Fe we had no dinner reservations but we took a chance on Luminaria just because it looked quite promising. We were shown to a lovely secluded table and our drinks were very good. The service was quite good, but we were disappointed in the food. Since it is pretty expensive, we won't be back anytime...

We dined at Luminaria for brunch while vacationing in Santa Fe. We've been here before and enjoyed our meal, but this time was unfortunately not up to par. We brought my mother-in-law thinking it would be a special treat. She ordered a fruit plate and we were horrified to discover that the raspberries she was served were covered in mold.... More

Huevos Rancheros for breakfast are a must and the Pear Ginger juice is to die for. Great apps too - the short rib nachos are excellent and the fish tacos are really, really good. Great service and very comfortable restaurant.

The weather was very nice so we sat outside. In good weather, I would highly recommend doing this. Our service was very friendly and relaxed (maybe a little slow at times). The food was very good. Overall, a great experience that I would repeat.
