Based on some friends recommendation, four of us had dinner here. It's fairly easy to find once you know, but the signage doesn't stand out, so unless you know about this place, you may miss it. The food was wonderful, no matter what was ordered, and the margaritas were an interesting mix of flavors and colors. Unfortunately, the service was... More

My wife and I cannot eat spicy food so this obviously puts us at a disadvantage in a restaurant like this. It is possible that, in selecting dishes with a minimum of heat, we were missing out on the best the kitchen has to offer. However, I have eaten in comparable places and have found outcomes that are slightly better.... More

We never miss visiting the Shed! As soon as we enter the city limits we head here. I have been enjoying this wonderful restaurant for over 27 years and it only gets better. How do they make that chile taste perfect every time. You have to eat here.

The best I have ever had. There were 4 of us, we all had great meals. Service was great. Be prepared to wait for 30-45 minutes for a table. Well worth the wait.

This Santa Fe restaurant was recommended by a local for its excellent red chile. It was quite good. The prices were reasonable. The service was okay. I especially liked the setting. We ate outdoors and were surrounded by southwestern décor, plants and even a tree in the middle of the courtyard. Good food and drinks. Very relaxing. We arrived at... More

We celebrated a birthday here and the people couldn't have been nicer! They treated us to several items in addition to the special card we received!

Living in New Mexico I've tasted many many different red chile sauces over the years. Trust me when I tell you that the red chile sauce here is one of the best you will ever have. The flavor is great and will leave a mark in your memory.

One of our favs! Margaritas have a big kick and taste great. The enchiladas and tacos are awesome. I like green and my wife likes it even hotter and chooses red! Garlic toast is a really great treat. The guacamole has such a great taste! We will be back again and again and again!

One of the most popular spots in Santa Fe...and deservedly so. I ordered the chicken breast with enchilada -- a good intro for a Midwesterner who was a bit worried about the fire factor of the chiles. Everyone in our party of six seemed happy with their selections -- especially the fish tacos. Our evening was made better because we... More

Ate here tonight and was very pleased with the choice and quality of the margaritas. I also found the food to be very affordable and very good. I ordered the chicken enchiladas and the chicken was plentiful and tasty. I will go back the next time I am in town. The service was also wonderful.
