Be ready for a wait or makea reservation!

Good variety of traditional Spanish food, but the soups and salads were fantastic. Make sure to make a reservation unless you don't mind waiting. Great outdoor patio if it's available. Check out the artwork, and yes it's for sale.

I go to Santa Fe often, and this trip I brought along my son and his wife and my granddaughter. Last Friday night we tried to eat dinner at The Shed, but the wait was too long. I told my family we at least had to get some of their guacamole and chips and a margarita, which we were able... More

Mmmm - really enjoyed the food here. We shared a small cup of posole to start - very good. I had blue corn burritos "Christmas" style, so I could try both the red and green sauces. Husband had the pollo adobo. Everything was really good. Margaritas were tasty also. We opted to sit outside on the small patio - good... More

Several of our friends told us to be sure to go to the Shed in Santa Fe, NM. We tried three times, once for lunch, twice for dinner. We did get in on a Saturday night (early). We had eaten our way through Santa Fe, Taos and Albuquerque and were really looking forward to our meal. The menu was strictly... More

Authentic mexican food, great environment, good service. This was recommended by a local and it didn't disappoint. Down a little alley way with bright colours and gorgeous out door seating. Inside has a bar and all different little eating areas. Heaps of character.

We were very surprised with the taste of this food! It actually had flavor! My grandpa is very picky with his Mexican food (being the authentic Mexican man he is) he enjoyed it very much. Both the green chili and red chili were spicy but delicious! We stumbled upon it before they were going to close and I asked if... More

I was was extremely disappointed by the Shed, which had been recommended more than once as the best place for true New Mexican cuisine. The food wasn't very good. The problem is that virtually everything on the menu is topped with a choice of either red or green sauce and both are extremely hot - so much so that the... More
