Lots of flavor on these plates .#10 plate gives you a good sample of there fare.Super friendly waiter was on top of things, he had been there 20+ years and still had a great attitude. Worth checking out for sure.

Based on what we'd been told, we made reservations. In retrospect, I am very glad we did. There was a HUGE number of people waiting to be seated and we had no wait time at all. The food was very good (fish tacos were quite tasty) and the margaritas were even better (though sadly on the expensive side). Definitely worth... More

We always stay on the plaza so the Shed is mandatory at least once during our stay. Margaritas delish, food always good BUT I have to say, as is everywhere in Santa Fe, your waiter will cut off all cocktails with the slightest hint of "having too much fun". First time it happened thought it was a fluke, but honestly... More

While out sight seeing and shopping with a girlfriend, we stopped in for Margaritas and some salsa and chips. Five star!

This is a very well-located restaurant in Sena Plaza , downtown Santa Fe. The red chile cheese enchiladas are hot and cheesy. If you don't like spicy, consider getting the green chile which is milder (but still hot) at the Shed. They have always had peppery red chile. the food is memorable, the sopapaillas are great for dessert. Ask your... More

Came highly recommended and did not disappoint. This was my first meal in Santa Fe and certainly had the local flavors which set the tone for the remainder of my visit. Great enchiladas in red chilly sauce, hot as warned and enjoyable! Good ambiance, service average, price reasonable. Came back a second time for drinks. Outside courtyard very quaint and... More

We had dropped in for a mid day walk about cocktail. Some people have tea mid day, we have cocktails. Quirky and charming are at the top of the success column. Followed by an amazing bartender who recognized a pair of seasoned well healed cocktailers. Lastly, the cocktails themselves. On point! We chose to sit outside on a beautiful spring... More

The Shed is mostly a tourist destination in downtown Santa Fe, well worth going. Good to get a reservation especially during high season. They have a sister restaurant called La Choza in the railyard district which is just as good and often not as busy.

We received a lot of recommendations to go to the shed. I would say it was an average experience. The food was good and reasonably priced.
