Unbelievably great food here. I had the opportunity to meet Chef Quinones while he was working the room speaking to guest and he recommended the Pork Belly appetizer and it was every bit as good as advertised!

While staying in Santa Fe during early July, I ate weekend brunch twice on the Luminaria patio, which is a delightful, shady place to linger over one's Sunday breakfast. The clustered trees and umbrellas make the space cool and inviting, even on a warm summer day. What is a weekend brunch without a mimosa? Those served here are delicious and... More

We were a party of (6) celebrating my sister's birthday in Santa Fe. We spent the day downtown but made sure to have reservations. This is a farm to table restaurant and you will not be disappointed. The staff is as good as any high end restaurant you will find in New York City. We started off with the special... More

Huge proportions at a very reasonable price, and at all meals. And a great range of items. The omelets at breakfast are great, as are the other choices, and the fried chicken at lunch was among the best I've ever had. Also excellent smaller items like soup or soup and half sandwich.

The service was outstanding, but the food was a little less than stellar being over cooked. At those prices, they should be the best dishes we ever ate. It is in a lovely setting, especially when the patio is open. A guitarist played throughout dinner and we did enjoy ourselves. They have a good wine selection and a varied menu.

We have a vacation home in Santa Fe so we eat here quite often. The food is great and the atmosphere is wonderful but on our last visit, we had a terrible experience when we made our reservation. We called to make a reservation to the restaurant. They asked our name, time of reservation, contact phone number, etc. A few... More

After our conversation, we conducted a thorough investigation of associates as well as a full swipe of our security systems by our corporate IT security team. Fortunately, all of our associates were cleared of any involvement in the... More

We were staying at the Loretto Spa and Resort where this restaurant is located. We decided to try lunch on their outdoor patio (right next to the old, historical church). We were surprised, amazed, and thrilled with our meals. The food was just fantastic, with a wonderful presentation. The sangria was one of the best I have ever had (other... More

We arranged a dinner party at Luminaria for 21 people after our wedding. The staff was incredibly helpful and completely professional. They arranged a fixed menu with options, managed the champagne and wine and did everything that they could to be accommodating. It was a thoroughly elegant and lovely evening in the courtyard under a tent. Service was immediate and... More
