Although not a very large venue, this restaurant had great morning breakfasts and fantastic service. The fresh baked pastries are right by the register and proved too tempting, so I ordered a cream cheese danish and a apricot tart. Besides being very expensive (I think the tart alone was $11.00), they were delicious. If you don't want to be tempted,... More

We stopped in for a late lunch. Had the appetizer Mussels Mamou and 2 entrees, along with a good bottle of wine. All the food was delicious, but those Mussels were just exquisite. We have had Mussels all over the world and nothing like these. We will go back as much as possible.

If in Santa Fe, and you're tired of chiles, here's the place for you no matter what the time of day. It's all good! And the pastries are to write home about.

We stopped in for a quick bite before an appointment and the fresh made almond croissants were the Best we have ever had! Wish we had time for the Eggs Benedict!

Stopped in for breakfast; had crepes and omelettes. Food was fresh and nicely prepared. Portions were just right, and nicely seasoned. Service was friendly and efficient. I thought about coming back for another meal, but ran out of time. Will come back again next visit.

We had a lovely dinner on the patio. Every dish was perfectly prepared. We split a little apricot tart for dessert. I wish I had ordered my own! It was delicious!

Our hotel had given us a bottle of bubbles for our anniversary stay and we decided we wanted a pinic supper on our patio. Chez Mamou was very responsive to de-constructing some menu items so that we could have what we wanted. Packaged it all up and included plastic ware for our utensils.

The place is quite lovely, very Parisian. The pastries were sublime. We ordered lunch and my salad was served incomplete and without any dressing. Organic spinach, fresh strawberries, almonds and a balsamic dressing....missing the almonds and balsamic dressing. I knew something was missing. I tried to eat it, but come on....spinach and strawberries DRY. I finally asked for a menu... More

If you are looking for great gourmet food, and especially if you want a change from Mexican food, this place is for you. And the wait staff exceeded expectations. We had the onion soup, the wild mushroom omelet, and the goat cheese-spinach omelet. They were prepared to perfection. Our waitress Erin went above and beyond expectations to make sure we... More
