I had the baby back rib dinner, my husband had the beef fajitas and both were excellent. Service was also excellent. The setting is very beautiful with the skylit ceiling, the Spanish Colonial style furniture and the painted glass tiles. If we lived here it would be on our "Take friends to this place" list!

This place came highly recommended and we were not disappointed. There is an artistic quality to the atmosphere with all of the painted window panes which blended well with the rustic look of the wood work throughout the restaurant. Our waitress Connie was very friendly and welcoming. The grilled cheese bites with the smoked tomato soup shooters appetizer was unusal... More

Believe it or not, the best meal I had in Santa Fe was at the La Fonda Hotel in the lovely, skylit restaurant. The Huevos Oaxacas I had for breakfast was simply the most well-balanced, flavorful meal I had in Santa Fe. It beat out Southwestern favorites I'd tried at other well-known, highly regarded restaurants in the Plaza area hands-down.... More

The atmosphere is wonderful. The chile is superb with above average heat. Huevos rancheros is a must. Blue corn pancakes are great also. The service was lacking on this trip.

This restaurant is right in the middle of the atrium in the hotel . We loved our meals. The baby back ribs were fabulous. And of course the margharitas. on the expensive side, but really a treat.

As a local, this is one of my go-to places for a special occasion. There is variety to the menu to please all tastes. The table-side- made guacamole is fabulous!

I know that peoples' experience can differ, but my husband and I just spent a week in Santa Fe, and our dinner at La Plazuela was the finest meal we had, in a city known for great food. The service was wonderful--with the waitress providing excellent recommendations in a friendly manner. The setting is beautiful and tranquil, as you are... More

A great waitress and delicious food and wine made this a memorable evening. Our party of 12 was welcomed and given extra special attention. There was something on the menu for everyone's special tastes...from prime rib to fajitas to fish!
