Everything we tried was a perfect ten in our book! Starting with the Green Apple Gazpacho it was the perfect balance of flavors and the bright green color was awesome! My Duck was probably the best I've ever had and my girls Buffalo Tenderloin was cooked to Culinary Perfection!

Great breakfast but food gets cold fast when sitting on the beautiful patio, great lunches and dinners. One of the best restaurants in town.

I am at a complete loss by the raving reviews about this place. My wife and I, both avid foodies and gourmet eaters, decided to go because of these reviews but please do not repeat our mistake. There are many places in Santa Fe where you can find MUCH better quality food for that kind of money or for even... More

My boyfriend and I love vacationing in Santa Fe, but we had no idea we were going to have the amazing meal that we did at Luminaria. The Amuse Bouche of a light Crab Salad with Green Apple was the perfect start to our meal. We had the Molecular Composition of Pineapples Cherries and Lime Caviar that made us feel... More

I don't understand the rave reviews of this place. The food was ordinary. Steak sizes were obscenely huge. Scallops arrived at room temperature. There were no flavor highlights. Had a lunch shrimp salad for $19 that had a mere three shrimp. Service was pleasant, environment was spacious and peaceful, but there just isn't a reason to return.

He constantly... More

Just stopped by the inn and spa at loretto for a quick overnight stay halfway between Denver, CO and Scottsdale, AZ. Really glad we stopped here. Food was amazing and service was equally as good. Aimee our server was very attentive and also gave us advice on where to go in Santa Fe on a Tuesday night.

I am a local. The service was excellent, the food was delicious. Our waitress Aimee, made sure that we would have ample time to get to the Opera, she checked on us. Our credit goes to the Executive Chef and his staff. I would highly recommend this restaurant. As the site of the restaurant has a great history.

After watching the morning local news show we saw the Chef preparing what seemed to be half a cow on television. (joking) Being that we eat up there all the time we decided to take the short 50 minute drive up to Santa Fe to go try this Steak out. It really is a huge hunk of beef called a... More
