Vinaigrette is a locally popular restaurant specializing in locally grown veges. There is both an indoor seating area and outdoor patio. I recommend reservations. It was very crowded and busy when I went. The food was very fresh and tasty though, for my tastes, the scollops were over-salted [fyi - I cook with no salt.] The menu was imaginative. The... More

First, TripAdvisor does not allow for different ratings for food and service so I have to figure out how to balance very good food with abysmal service. Thus a three star rating. So, the food was outstanding as good as we've had in Santa Fe. Big salads with add-ones such as duck confit that was excellent. It's an excellent value... More

I have eaten dinner here a few times and everything has been delicious. As others note, when you have had your fill of the other fabulous restaurants in Santa Fe you should come here to have something lighter and refreshing. I am someone who doesn't really like salad, but I have to say I love their salads! They have taken... More

Nice patio, friendly service, decent place for a light lunch, average food, nothing special. I doubt that my wife and I will be returning on our next visit to Santa Fe.

As others note, this is a nice alternative in Santa Fe. It was just a couple of blocks from the Hotel Santa Fe where we were staying. Ingredients are fresh, nice combinations. Casual. Especially nice sitting outside. We arrived just before 8 pm on a Sunday and it was emptying out, so we had no wait. It looked like it... More

We sat outside on a quiet rainy night. The staff could not have been more accommodating. This is my wife's favorite restaurant. The speed of the service was slow but the food was pleasant.

Santa Fe has a lot of interesting restaurant choices. Most of them feature tasty food without much consideration of the patron's waistline. Vinaigrette is an exception. An emphasis on healthy choices--particularly unusual salads. Perhaps a little pricey for salad and the restaurant doesn't possess much ambience but quality of the food and number of choices is very good. I get... More

Most imaginative contemporary combinations of greens, etc, plus a half dozen of protein selections to meet your fancy for a great salad. Seating inside were mostly benches and picnic tables, not very comfortable. And, we spent over $40 per person there! Came during a very crowded Saturday night; and the kitchen was very slow. It's okay to come here once... More

Great casual place. Huge uniquely made salads at a fair price. We highly recommend this relatively new addition to Santa Fe.

I love Vinaigrette! It is my favorite place to go when visiting Santa Fe. I have loved everything I have ever had there. Last night I had a seasonal salad, the kale tabouli with grilled flank steak. Delicious. Last night was the first time that I have experienced slow (but not uncourteous) service. It took an hour to get our... More
