Great New Mexican cuisine. Lovely atmosphere. Red or Green? Good service. More than ample portions at a reasonable price.

The service was wonderful. The food was not what we thought was exceptional Mexican style. Actually a bit disappointed but sitting in such beauty is still a pleasue.

My wife and I stayed four nights at the La Fonda with a special that included breakfast daily. We also had one dinner there. To begin, the large renovated dining room has a massive ceiling structure more two-stories high with design and custom artistry that lets you know you are in old Santa Fe. For dinner, we found the best... More

My wife and I have dinner here whenever we visit Santa Fe. The restaurant is historic and beautiful, this time white poinsettias were around the fountain. The margaritas are tasty and the service is very good. Santa Fe claims to have great Mexican food and some of the best is right here. The filet and enchiladas are fantastic. Good coffee... More

What a stunning dining room in the historic La Fonda...and breakfast with the local newspaper...hearty portions, charismatic wait staff, and with encouragement leisurely to enjoy one's breakfast relishing it along with the ambience ... begins what is always a marvelous morning in Santa Fe. The dining room is bright; I like the uncrowded table arrangement, and the food, frankly, is... More

First of all, La Plazuela has been a hub for dining since the hotel was built ~1929. I think every post card that I have seen of this central location on the first floor of La Fonda has shown people dining and being entertained with singers and bands. Although the singers and bands are missing, La Plazuela continues to provide... More

Might be the fourth time we dined at La Plazuela and this time it was the absolute best. First, the restaurant really is beautiful and perfect for Christmas. Second, margaritas were perfection with the right mix of flavors. We tried the Filet with enchiladas and chile rellanos which were the best I have ever had in NM. It was a... More

This restaurant is so lovely, in the center of the hotel. We visited in January and the fountain in the center was ringed with white poinsettias and clear lights decorated the trees inside. The docor is reason enough to go, but the food is wonderful, too. They have Southwestern entrees, more usual fare of poultry, meat and fish, a couple... More
