Top Dining In Santa Fe: Art on A Plate!

Almost fantastic. The food presentations were stunning and the service and wine list wonderful. The beet salad fashioned as though the veggies grew from the chopped Kalamata "soil" was amazing. My pork belly appetizer, also visually beautiful, was as tasty as can be. Both fish entrees (cod and seared yellowfin) were pretty and scrumptious. And the sodium levels in almost... More

The Santa Fe Motel and Inn got us same day reservations while we were out and about all day. It was a short walk, we were seated right away and the wait staff was very at tentative. The presentation was a piece of art and the meals delicious. We were pleasantly full but shared a dessert that was exceptional. A... More

Very delicious and satisfying experience. Enjoyed a birthday dinner with family; started with the Garden salad (not an inspiring name for a very inspired salad). A bed of coffee curd and puffed wild rice,with golden beets, rainbow beets, petite carrots, and goat cheese with arugula- tres Bon! Definitely recommended. Main dish of Airline Chicken, Caramelized onion, haricots, sweet potato purée,... More

We were driving cross country from Los Angeles, heading to our home in New Jersey, a road trip to celebrate both my wife's birthday and our wedding anniversary. We were staying at the Inn on Alameda (which I just reviewed) and I was searching for a great place for dinner on my wife's birthday...Several people made suggestions, but the most... More

Nothing bad, but nothing too god either. Menu quite predictable , given the hype. Execution inconsistent. My omelette was dry and boring, despite the crab, almost frozen, and the wild mushrooms, barely cooked and unsavory. Even the country style potatoes were seriously undercooked. Others in my party had more luck. But, gosh, what does it take to make a decent... More

We went in for an early dinner and found the place nearly empty. That certainly changed, by the time we left it was jammed. The food was very high quality, with a great presentation and great taste. This is one of those restaurants where the focus is clearly on food quality, not quantity!

Arriving with high expectations for a Sunday brunch, we were disappointed! Nothing wrong with the meal or service, but not worth a return visit.

The plating of the food was beautiful. Obviously the chef takes great pride in presentation. It was impressive. Unfortunately, I wasn't as impressed with the taste. I decided on the rib eye steak with short rib because it did not have as many strange fixings with it. I would guess the steak was 5 oz and the short rib was... More

We went with local friends for Sunday brunch and it was outstanding. The chef is a James Beard Award Finalist this year for Southwest region and has been nominated several times before. The wine list is extensive and nicely varied both in terms of selections and price range. Something to please every palate and budget. We had New Mexico items... More
