Lovely Happy Hour

Went to this wine bar for drinks and apps. Great atmopshere, cute little area. Loved the wine selections and small plates. Great homemade potato tots.

The first impression was a host with a ponytail that was arrogant, obnoxious and rude. The table was extremely small in a corner, service was completely average, the food is not impressive at all. I felt like throwing my money to the trash, it was not worth the expense. If I need to put it in a few words not... More

I had a great meal and it had the typical Santa Fe charm and friendly staff. It's hard to hate a place that has these qualities and the food was thoughtfully made. Great choice for dinner.

This a small venue with several little rooms and an intimate soft atmosphere with good art on the walls. It is quiet enough to eavesdrop on the conversation at the next table. Our server was as knowledgeable and helpful as any I ever had. We were in Santa Fe for a birthday. We were looking for a restaurant that was... More

My husband and I enjoyed a great early dinner here and were duly impressed by the efficient service, good quality linen, selection of food and wine and superb food. It is a rather expensive place, but definitely worth it. We had tender, flavoursome lamb shank served with mash and spinach and enjoyed that along with a soft Chilean cabernet sauvignon.... More

The oysters were wonderful, the foie gras amazing...the wine list was great! Eat in the bar area or in the dining rooms. We will go back here just for the wine and appetizer list , alone!

A very small bar in a small restaurant with a great bartender who only needs to find a smile more often. Very, very good food and drink. We will be back.

we used the appetizer menu as "tapas" style and had a very nice meal, sharing five items. Great seafood. Fabulous ambiance. Service was not what we would have expected, mediocre for this calibre of restaurant. Seemed to cater to a dedicated group of local clients who garnered the most attention.

Housed in an old adobe house on The Santa Fe Trail, this is an amiable restaurant with a small bar/lounge area and small intimate rooms for dining. Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, it has a strong local following. It competes well with other Santa Fe restaurants for service and food quality. I enjoy the bar area with its high-top...

What is not to like about this quiet restaurant across the street from a New Mexico State office building?! Knowledgeable servers - smart about the food and wine, as well as the variety of hard liquors and mixed drinks. The bar menu, with its $8 plates, often suitable for sharing, is flat out terrific. We went twice in the course... More
