Cute place, great service

Great effort on behalf of all, however not my particular taste. All the other dinners around me appeared to be having a great time so worth a try.

We made a reservation the day before to ensure we would be able to eat at Pasqual's in celebration of my 60th birthday. I am an adventurous eater, and I don't know what I expected, but the menu seemed confusing and off-putting at first glance (the menu we ordered from was not the one posted as their menu here on...

When in Santa Fe don't miss this place. Breakfast, lunch or dinner...it's all good! I've eaten all these meals at Pasqual's and I've never been disappointed. Get there early for breakfast or lunch otherwise you may have to wait in line. If you do wait you will experience a meal like no other. For dinner you may want to make... More

Went for dinner and had a delicious meal. Decor was warm and welcoming with murals and tiles painted by Mexican Leovigildo Martinez. Service average, soup was cold but was instantly replaced when I voiced my concern. Main entree, pan-seared wild line caught coho salmon, with lemon grass coconut sauce, excellent! Little pricey but a nice indulgence and on a backstreet... More

Cafe Pasqual's is a must for both visitors and locals. The food is delicious and the menu is unlike anywhere else in the city, or arguably even the world. The atmosphere is classy, artsy, and eclectic. It is a pricier place to eat, to be sure, but the food is awesome. Their salads are super fresh and flavorful and I... More

High quality, delicious food. Homey vibe. Convenient location. Lots of variety. I have never had to wait for breakfast or lunch, but I could see how a dinner might require a reservation or a wait.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone! I have been coming here since 1994. I usually spend a lot of time working in the ABQ area and usually drive up at least once or twice a week just to eat here. The food here is amazing. If you have a chance, visit their gallery upstairs.

The one place I will not miss when I go to Santa Fe! Original twists on old favorites. Always excellent. I have Ben coming to Sant Fe for years. Other restaurants have waxed and waned. But my meals here have always been outstanding! It is a small local restaurant that seat no more than 50 so there is often a... More

You have to try this dining spot in Sante Fe! A line was quickly forming fairly shortly after we arrived there for breakfast. The Traditional Heuvos Rancheros is a must have with beans, chili sauce, tortillas, etc. and for us most importantly organic eggs, when cut into join the other flavors fabulously.
