We were there for dinner looking for a break from the pervasive green chile/red chile dynamic in Santa Fe. We found the salads to be interesting and delicious, with great add-ons like duck confit.. The service was warm and helpful and we also enjoyed an excellent Spanish white wine. The ambiance is simple but pleasant. The location is a bit... More

It wasn't easy to find this place even with our GPS navigation system. Once we found it, it was so good we returned the next evening for another meal during our brief visit to Sante Fe. Great service, too.

Vinaigrette is the perfect antidote for New Mexican overload. As much as I love the native cuisine in Santa Fe I simply cannot eat it every day for a week or more when I'm in town and not suffer the consequences. Sometimes, not as often as I should, I actually listen to what my body needs and it's usually roughage... More

If you are looking for something light, this is a great spot. Not a huge menu, but the options are fresh and very flavorful. I thoroughly enjoyed my cobb salad and it was a huge portion so plenty for a big appetite. Definitely get the mac and cheese appetizer. Its great!

I have been to Vinaigrette maybe 5 or more times. I loved it the first time; it has such a unique culinary profile in this town of red and green chile, posole and beans. Plus it is in an interestingly remodeled old style home. This type of dwelling is usually low ceilinged and a bit claustrophobic. The owner has opened... More

Essentially, Vinaigrette does one thing and does it well--salads. Almost all are offered with the option of adding chicken, steak, shrimp, etc., but the salads themselves are generously portioned, with healthy and inventive combinations. A bit off the beateh path, but worth finding. Only caution: be prepared to hunt for parking at lunch time.

I had a group of 25 staying at a hotel nearby and needed an easy and good place for two of our lunches. I had eaten at Vinaigrette on previous trips to Santa Fe and thought it would be a good choice. The owner, Gabe, was very helpful in setting up two different menus of salads and sandwich for our... More

Mostly salads: keep vegetarian, or add protein as desired. Great desserts. Setting casual, wait staff attentive and friendly.

You who have eaten there know of whom I speak; he's perfected enunciated speech, gets flustered easily, darts like a hummingbird, and almost became a topic of conversation. The service was slow, a delicious slice of peach pie contained a peach pit (unfortunately the person in whose mouth it was in took a big bite of pie), and it was... More
