We had a great brunch on their beautiful patio for our party of 12. The service was very attentive and everyone thought their meal was great. It could not have been a nicer brunch.

We came with high expectations after reading the excellent reviews in guidebooks for this restaurant. Although it's in a historic adobe, the restaurant is divided into a warren of small rooms. We were seated in the last one, which was unadorned, noisy and felt almost claustrophobic. The waiter didn't tell us the specials--we had to ask. Although the food was... More

Imagine being in Santa Fe and having no art on the walls. This all white establishment did not need it. Food and service were great. And there is an outdoor courtyard to enjoy service - it was too cool when I visited but romantic under the stars when warmer.

We stopped into this very high end restaurant for lunch on a recommendation from a gallery owner. Very classy patio dining covered with awnings. The grilled cheese sandwich is not on the menu and you have to know to ask for it. It is made on artisan bread with gruyere cheese. It has tomatoes and bacon on it. Awesome! Try... More

Invariably, my out of town guests invite me to dine here. In my opinion it is one of the few places people usually dress up to dine at in Santa Fe- a place to see and be seen. I have eaten here about a dozen times and never had a spectacular meal. I have had good meals here and never... More

This site offers a varied menu to meet any taste, and is always dependably well prepared and well presented. The wine list is appropriate and the service is professional and timely. The atmosphere is appropriately "Santa Fe" and the location is close to the plaza.

We enjoyed two meals at Santacafe - a lunch and a dinner, and both were fine dining experiences. The menu features Santacafe's chef's unique creations around New Mexico cuisine. Also, save room for their deserts! If you are on a budget, we recommend going to lunch. The food, the service, the delightful courtyard surroundings are top-notch no matter when you... More

Santa Cafe is open late on the weekend. We were in town during the Wjne & Chile Fest and everywhere was packed. Used Open Table and was able to get a late reservation. Been there many times and it's always good. Even though they were packed, we still had good service and excellent food. The Bar is a also a... More

Though it's been a while since I was here, as I live three hours away, I continuously go back in my mind to the magical evening I had here. A long time friend, who I hadn't seen in years, was going to be in Santa Fe so I made the drive just to meet with her and have dinner. As... More
