Staff was 2nd rate, I guess due to renovations. Waitress, one of only two servers ever on duty was wearing a boot, due to a broken leg. Brushed her hair behind the make shift counter, I counted 100 strokes. She must listen to her mother. Prices are good, especially for Santa Fe, sadly the food was poor. The kitchen was... More

We were in Santa Fe for our 35th anniversary, having a great time, and looking forward to a nice meal. Unfortunately, the restaurant in the El Dorado (our hotel) completely botched our reservation. We went out looking for a decent place for a steak...and kept having one problem after another...until we went to the Pinon Grill. Jeff, the bartender/waiter welcomed... More

Staying here at the hotel, so decided to give breakfast a try. Buffet was lackluster, too much institutional feel, food sitting in chafing dishes too long, soggy bacon, overcooked scrambled eggs.

Usually have the meat plate which is a bargain without the bread of the sand which and comes with salsa chips and salad stuff. Salsa is at the salad bar. Soups are fine as well. This time we ordered off the menu and shared a chopped salad. Service is attentive.

Had breakfast buffet to start our day. Food selection was excellent with a variety of hot and cold items. Everything tasted good and was hot. Our service at the table was prompt.

Pleasant wait staff but indifferent food at a hotel premium cost. Avoid the gluey corn and green chili chowder. The salad bar was OK

Their is a long wait when busy. Nice seating area near fireplace. It's a small area but nice decor. Always ask for separate checks upon ordering food as they frown on doing it after the fact.
