We had a lovely brunch here on Sunday. The outside seating area was very pretty with plenty of shade. Service was good and all of our dishes went down a treat! Between us we ordered the burger, poached eggs, BLT sandwich and the quiche. Great location, well worth a visit!

Celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversary we had researched all of the better restaurants in Santa Fe over two months ahead of our visit and made reservations a month before our arrival. We arrived a few minutes before 7 and were promptly seated. We were offered water and menus but no drinks. One of the menus was for Sunday brunch which... More

The restaurant has a pretty patio and interior rooms with well-spaced tables with tablecloths. The food is fairly expensive but it is cooked and presented carefully and attractively. When a dish was not cooked to specifications, the problem was repaired quickly. You won't go away hungry after dessert---pretty and abundant. There is parking close by, and I think public bus...

We had a reservation for 5 and were seated as requested on the patio on a beautiful summer day in Santa Fe -- July 31, 2014. It could have been perfect... We had eaten dinner here before a few years ago but inside and had good service and excellent food. The restaurant was very busy but even so our wait... More

Our meals last evening were excellent. A homemade pasta in a light cream sauce with spinach and tomatoes topped with a tempura soft shell crab and Scottish salmon on a bed of Israeli cous cous were both cooked to perfection. Unfortunately our server was MIA the majority of the time. Ironically, the fellow who came around to fill our water... More

I've eaten here several times and do enjoy the food, but the acoustics make it nearly impossible to carry on a conversation without yelling. Doubt if I'll go back as there are too many other choices for dinner.

We were out of town and looking for a restaurant with Santa Fe ambiance- this isn't it. There were 6 of us (3 teens and 3 adults) who were seated at a table for 4. When I asked the hostess for a larger table, she stated "I always seat 6 at a table like this." When I insisted on a... More

My hubby and I ate there for his b-day and it wasn't as good as I had hoped. The calamari appetizer - okay, my "special" pasta dish with a creamy mushroom sauce - okay, my husbands buca de something meat dish - okay. When I pay a small fortune for a meal, I expect a lot more.

Still a 'Power Lunch' destination in Santa Fe: love its summer patio...pleasant servers, extensive luncheon menu and wine selections. Five of us had different entrees and shared the coffee ice cream extravaganza which was fabulous! Do go and try the lobster: any preparation being served!
