The presentation of the food was beautiful, staff very attentive and food fine but a bit over priced. Did think it was interesting that we were told that there were no available 6:00 pm reservations but that they could seat us at 5:45. We were the only ones in the restaurant until almost 7:00 when we finished our meal. Not... More

Love having lunch at Luminaria. The terrace is beautiful, so relaxing. Their food is creative and always very good. Lovely salads, the carrot soup was divine. Their service is always a bit awkward, but the staff are friendly so it makes up for it. Very relaxing place to have lunch!

From the moment you walk into the restaurant you get this overwhelming feeling that you are in for a treat. And indeed, we were. Great service all the way around. We started with the Foie Gras French Toast infused with Root Beer which was delicious and for our entrees we enjoyed the Duck with Rhubarb and the Pork Chop. The... More

Luminaria in Santa Fe, New Mexico has an excellent menu choice! The Pork Belly is magnificent and is so tasteful, you won't know when to stop! My husband had the halibut and it was delicious! The environment is gorgeous and staff is friendly! Great job to the Chef and his crew!

I had dined here a few years back and had some trepidation that it may no live up to my memories this visit with my wife. If anything the food was even better, a very pleasant suprise . We stated with the duck crepe, which was mouthwatering, not too hot just a hint of peppers. The start of the night... More

We had dinner reservations here for our only night in Santa Fe, and we are so glad we did. The indoor and outdoor spaces were both elegant. We chose to eat on the patio, which has a view of the Loretto Chapel--how is that for atmosphere? The hostess and servers were very welcoming. Their bartender did an awesome job with... More

We ordered 3 meals from the prix fixe menu, and they were all very good. Braised pork belly appetzer was the best I have ever had; salmon was prefect; scallops were fabulous. Wine pairings were adequate, but very good wine list, if you want to upgrade. Among best in Santa Fe in quality, plus a good value.

Had wanted to sit out on the patio but the rain prevented that from happening so we sat in the equally gorgeous dining room and enjoyed a fabulous meal. A Bone In Filet Mignon and Halibut were the highlights of the evening and our bottle of Vino was the perfect balance. Our server showed great tact throughout our meal and... More

What a lovely, breezy evening we had on the patio at Luminaria! The outdoor dining area is not to be missed. Overhead cover is provided by a large cottonwood tree and a hard-surface patio roof. We began with vodka cocktails in the bar and we were then seated under the cottonwood tree. We both ordered sparkling wine, New Mexico's Gruet,... More
