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.

Great lunch!

The staff is very friendly and the strawberry jalapeño margarita is amazing! They give you a lot of food and it is all very good. The atmosphere is great.

We sat outside with a glass of wine & coffee that we obtained at the bar, waiting for over an hour. We asked for menus, which eventually arrived, but no wait staff ever was available to take our order....over an hour, we waited. So we left.

We had just walked out of another restaurant (Tabla de Los Santos) before even being served as a result of some incredibly rude service, and were walking back to our hotel (Inn at Loreto) to which this restaurant is attached. For some reason, though this was our second visit at the hotel, we had never eaten at the restaurant. We're... More

Great patio, disappointing food, awful service. It seems Luminaria is banking on the fact that it is downtown and part of a hotel to keeps things going. Nothing particularly interesting on the brunch menu, and what was offered was neither pretty nor memorable. Waiter seemed to forget he had tables many times- even after we asked for a wine menu....

We really enjoyed the food including pasta, steak, scallops and salads. Great cocktails and desserts too. But, oy. Terrible service. Soup served with no spoon. We had to flag down a waiter. Steak with no knife. Anothet flag down. Fine dining but not fine dining service

The staff makes you feel important. You probably can sit here for hours .. its a romantic place. I left my Apple Ipad Mini and customers checked it in the front desk. You can already tell what kind of people eat here. I was lucky.. Thanks Luminaria..

We had a lovely late lunch out on the patio. We were told it had recently be redone and it is worth checking out, very beautiful setting. It had a great casual elegance feel. Lunch was delicious, would have given it 5 stars except our waiter was not very attentive. Hopefully this is not the norm and we would go... More

Your needs are anticipated by unseen wait staff which seemed to appear with anything you need. The food was truly and experience and tops the list of fine dining in any place in the world. While this was a business trip my wife accompanied me and this intimate establishment is the perfect spot for a romantic getaway.
