Good choice and a popular local hangout.

The food was great, and the place is packed with locals, always a good sign. Get something with green chile sauce.

Everyone seems to want to eat there (for good reason). They take some reservations, which are advised.

Luckily an art gallery guy recommended this restaurant to us and added "this is where the locals eat". It's just a block off the square. The menu offers a wide variety including northern NM cuisine, salads, burgers, etc. Great service every time. We ate lunch before noon on weekdays and we're seated immediately. On any night, you will need dinner... More

I booked an early table as I was off to the theatre - what a gem I found. Great location just off the Plaza in a historic pueblo building- full of small quirky dining areas. There is no frills with the food - its good. honest and very good value and not being familiar with "chili" I erred on the... More

We had only one day in Santa Fe, and knew nothing about the city. We spent the afternoon browsing the shops around the plaza, and asked the shop staffers for recommendations for dinner. Time after time, The Shed was the first suggestion. Even at 6:00 on a cool Monday night in the off season, The Shed was hopping. We took... More

The Shed Restaurant is a long time establishment that shouldn't be missed in Santa Fe, NM. The building itself is a great site to see - be sure to walk around and stick your head in all the little rooms. The food is honest New Mexican style - not to be confused with simple Mexican style from Texas or California... More

We have been frequenting this restaurant since the 90's - If you are traveling through or a local, don't miss this very reasonably priced treasure. The most authentic enchiladas I've ever eaten. Always a treat!

We ate at The Shed a few years ago and really enjoyed it. We returned last week and were very disappointed. The margaritas and service were good but the food was not up to par with even a fast food restaurant. Sloppy plates and not really tasty at all. We won't be back. So many better places in Santa Fe.
