This restaurant is located inside LaFonda, so very convenient for meals. Mexican breakfast wonderful. Drinks are good too.

Gorgeous dining room which captured the spirit of Santa Fe, which is not just southwestern but international. Service was also very good, but the food was dry and overcooked, just barely edible.

On the advice of a friend, we went for dinner to La Plazuela, having requested table near fountain. We were seated in a beautiful room with 3 walls covered with painted glass panes. Our server was right on, immediately explaining the menu and the history of the painted panes. Signature margaritas were quite good, the local squash blossoms were wonderful.... More

We just ate here and had a perfect meal! Great ambience, love the decor, food was fabulous, and our server, Stormi, was the best! We only have one more night in Santa Fe and might just come back here again! Loved it!

I ate at the La Plazuela several years ago when I first stayed in Santa Fe and was excited to go back recently for another delicious meal. We were there to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. The staff was friendly and accommodating and made our dinner a memorable occasion. However, to my disappointment, our entrees were average at best.

I visited, initially to escape the heat and look at the hotel, on a warm Saturday afternoon. The restaurant is bright and beautiful with a nice restaurant with the menu influenced by northern New Mexican cuisine. The service was attentive polite and the food excellent, A great find hidden behind the shopping street façade.

This was absolutely the best dining experience I have ever had. I traveled here for business purposes for 5 days. I ate at this restaurant the first night I was in Santa Fe and I never ate dinner at another location the rest of the trip. Each night was just as good as the first night or better. This is... More

I've eaten at many a restaurant where the food was outstanding only to have the experience ruined by inattentive, uniformed or rude waitstaff. However, at La Plazuela, everything from our waiter to the bus staff were knowledgeable, helpful and very pleasant. We will be back to dine in August on our way from Texas to Colorado.

Long wait even with reservations, food served luke-warm and poorly seasoned, inattentive waitstaff. Best to go outside the restaurant for an enjoyable and reasonably priced meal. Santa Fe has many outstanding restaurants, but unfortunately this is not one of them.
