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. Located in the Loretto Inn, one of the most iconic SW architecturely stunning hotels, the whole package is The Essence of Santa Fe!! The dinner... More

My wife and I spent four nights in Santa Fe and our best dinner was at the Luminaria. We enjoy Michelin-rated restaurants and while this is not so rated, the meal, menu choice and service warranted a star. The braised buffalo ribs were uniquely prepared and just superb! The wine list was not outstanding, but quite acceptable and better than... More

Had a marvelous dinner here last night. Sat near fireplace. The only thing missing were tongs to move logs! Great service, cordial and friendly staff. Delicious food!

We were staying at the hotel (Inn and Spa at Loretto) and wandered into Luminaria, its restaurant, for an early dinner. The staff was friendly and helpful. As other reviewers have written, the menu is limited, but I see that as a good thing. A limited menu shows they are using fresh, seasonal ingredients. We sat in a booth, which... More

This meal was the highpoint of our recent trip to Santa Fe. All entries were exceptional. My husband and friend split the tomahawk rib eye steak - 32 ounces. It was some of the best steak they've ever had. I have the 36 hour buffalo ribs that I'm still thinking about. Our fourth guest had the lamb and raved about... More

Just beautiful as luminaries dot the street. Friendly, festive crowds walk the decorated street. Would have been made more special if Carolers chimed in.

The restaurant is lovely and the food is good but it is pricey and a little pretentious. I did not like having a tiny table that was a foot away from another couple's tiny table. When my husband asked if the fixed price menu was still an option, our server's attitude immediately changed. Her response was an icy "yes" and... More
