The service was just bad, waitstaff didn't seem to care about anything other than what was going on in their heads. We were repeatedly ignored. Sopaipillas came out cold and the butter was rock hard. What a let down.

La Fonda was a really special experience that I have been looking forward to for quite some time. The room is very open and light giving it a fresh clean ambiance. The food was really well prepared, well seasoned and nicely presented. However, I felt that serving both bread and sopapillas was an over kill. Advice: skip the bread and... More

From the moment we walked in the place felt disorganized. Our meal was cold and tasteless. Server had no clue what was going on. It's a shame because the building is beautiful.

We love dining indoors inside the bright atrium, especially during winter. Our favorite meal at La Plazuela is lunch, especially the pulled pork and red chili sandwich with sweet potato fries -- big enough to share. Their sopapillas are the best in town too. Nothing's more charming in Santa Fe than the La Fonda hotel, take some time to walk... More

Beautiful building and ambiance but the food was bad. Eggs were overcooked and bacon was dry as a belt.

We had a feeling that this was a tourist trap based on the ambiance but we decided to try it out and our fears were realized. Rice and Beans were mushy and flavorless and the beef wa dry and overcooked. Service was awkward and we wont go there again.

This restaurant is in a beautiful indoor courtyard in the hotel. The ceiling is high with a gallery around, there are beautiful traditional tiles on the walls and indoor trees with lights. It was very full on the night we ate there and this all created a great atmosphere. We had to wait a little while until the table we... More

After reading the other reviews I had quite high expectations, but I was disappointed by the quality of the food. It was not bad, but it also was not as good as I hoped.

We had breakfast here twice. Large portions, delicious food, attractive setting. (Was part of our package with the hotel, so didn't focus on the pricing.)
