Had dinner here and was disappointed. Chicken dish was very dry. They brag about their garlic bread. Mine came to the table burnt on the bottom and I had to ask for another serving. Would not go back.

Great food in a historic building at a local institution with an attentive waiter. What more can you say besides eat the red chili.

Most important thing is - either make reservations, or stop by at about 4 or 5 p.m. to get on the list to be seated by 6 or 7. Location is easy... right on the Plaza, near the square. People just seem to come in droves. The food was good (not the best we've ever had, by any means). Menu... More

The Shed is a Santa Fe institution, and a must-visit for anyone who likes traditional New Mexican food. We always try to go at least once each time we visit Santa Fe, though because they don't take reservations for small parties it can sometimes be a test of stamina and willpower to accomplish this. The restaurant is just off the... More

We stopped here for lunch and had about a 20 minute wait. That was no problem because we just walked around the square and when we came back the table was ready. The food was excellent, however the service left a bit to be desired. The waitress forgot my gazpacho soup..

Went to The Shed based on reputation, but were disappointed. We waited an hour and a half, which was not a problem because we enjoyed the surroundings and the shops in the square. In fact, we got some great travel suggestions from the lady at the Christmas shop. The atmosphere outside of the of The Shed is certainly intriguing. We... More

We ate at The Shed in Santa Fe, New Mexico on 9 July, 2014. Can't say enough good about the quality and quantity of food and the reasonable prices for this restaurant. This has to rate as one of the best New Mexican food restaurants we have ever eaten at. We had the enchiladas with taco combo and it was... More

Many people insisted that we go to The Shed, so we had dinner there. We waited for a table in the bar and had beers and margaritas, which were all good. However, we were surprised that we were not more impressed with our meals. They were huge portions, and tasted fine, but were simply average. We can't figure out what... More

Well worth the 1 1/2 hour wait. The red sauce is out of this world! Go and put yourself on the waitlist and then go shopping.

The Shed is a great place to go if you are wanting authentic Santa Fe style food. There are enchiladas, tacos, and burritos and you can pick if you want red or green sauce on top. I got the Lemon Garlic Shrimp Entrée and it was fantastic. The shrimp was cooked to perfection. We arrived on a Monday night around... More
