Brought here by a good friend. Got seated at a communal table.. interesting experience. Staff very attentive, food exceptional. Desert downright dangerous. Reserve ahead.... or be prepared to wait. Bring your appetite.

Have eaten here several times. The menu is sophisticated and the food excellently prepared. Save room for dessert as the ice creams are wonderful. Just had a strawberry ice cream with roasted strawberry topping which was divine.

A bit too pricey, though the food was generally very good and the breakfast quesadilla was excellent.... Very busy, so be prepared to sit at the community table... Or wait...

I visit Santa Fe every year and always have to eat at Pasqual's. There's almost always a wait for a table, and I've waited for more than an hour before, and it's worth it! Everything is made from scratch! Try their chicken mole enchiladas...the combination of flavors is outstanding! I had the fish tacos with the cactus salad today and... More

If you look at the menu posted outside of this small, funky restaurant, you might feel the dinner prices are very high, even for a town as expensive as Santa Fe. Don't let that dissuade you! We took the plunge on the advice of friends who go there regularly and joined them for dinner. While entrees are in the $20-$30... More

Breakfast, lunch, dinner - they are all good at Café Pasqual's. They have been serving up tasty New Mexican dishes for over thirty years and the crowds keep on coming. That tells you something. The kitchen can be slow if you are there for breakfast when the doors open, but it is worth the wait.

Popped in last minute one evening while walking around Santa Fe. Lucky for us there was a no show and we got the table. Love the fresh food and friendly service. This place never disappoints.

We never miss having breakfast here several times during our annual visits to Santa Fe. Cheerful, fun atmosphere, excellent service, tasty food. Didn't have lunch or dinner here this year, but remember being less than impressed with our food when we had dinner here last year....and being surprised at how expensive it was. ( Although we met very interesting people... More

The location is great but as soon as I walked in it smelled very bad (probably a dish), the service was a bit slow.... The food tasted good. We ordered desserts and they both came with lots of alcohol, which is not specified in the menu so I couldn't really enjoy mine because I'm pregnant.

We had breakfast this morning at the community. The french bread french toast was very good. We enjoyed talking with others at the table. We were told there would be a 15 minute wait but sat down in about 5 minutes. The service was good. Sat next to a man who formerly lived in Santa Fe and said he has... More
