Wait worth the food and patio seating.

We had a delicious dinner on the patio. Great service and people watching. The New Mexican style food had some heat which added to the flavor and experience

During the summer there is usually a wait here, but they move people through at a good clip. The patio where you wait is charming, the food and drinks first class and the waiters friendly and efficient. If you eat on the patio your dog won't be sent home...it's dog tolerant.

I was going to entitle my review 'The BEST Red Chile in Santa Fe", but i changed the words "Red Chile" to "New Mexican", because the green chile is great too. I just happen to favor red over green. If you want to try both, just ask for "Christmas". That's code in New mexico for 1/2 red, 1/2 green. There... More

#5 red is so good-it makes you want to hit yo mama!! My whole family orders that every time. We drive from Denver and make sure to arrive at the Shed in time for lunch. We even buy their red sauce to take home even though it's very expensive. One visit to Santa Fe we ate there every lunch and... More

We sat outside and ate our shrimp dinners. They were delicious, and the waitress was attentive. Seating began at 5:00 p.m. for dinner, but we got there about 20 minutes early to put our names on a list kept by the hostess. I'm glad we arrived early because the restaurant became very crowded at about 5:00 p.m.

It's a tradition to come to The Shed whenever we're in Santa Fe. It's always a treat. Their service and facilities are always consistent, as is their delicious food. The blue corn red chile enchiladas are the BEST. The carne adovada is to die for.... And the festive atmosphere, always bustling, is so fun. Highly recommended -- even with a... More

Obviously this place in the plaza is a HUGE draw for locals and tourists. They are very organized with their wait process, and take a cell phone number so you can wander around and shop. We tend to eat early and we had only a thirty minute wait. As we were leaving, the wait was being estimated at 1.5 hours.... More

The Shed is a must visit every time we come to Santa Fe. The atmosphere and food are wonderful. We always have the posole and blue corn enchiladas, two items that we rarely see in Texas. This trip I wanted something lighter and tried the fish tacos. They were delicious.

We hit The Shed as soon as we got into town. Margs and enchiladas are as fantastic as the atmosphere. Fun and casual.
