The Perfect Spot for a Light Lunch

After a full morning of traveling and no time for lunch, the lounge area in front of the fireplace was the perfect spot for a light lunch and cocktails before setting off to explore Santa Fe.

Amaya is one of my favorite dining experiences in Santa Fe, offering a warm, intimate, inviting atmosphere with a cozy fire in the dining room and live music in the lounge They just switched the menu and I loved the mussels that are now available. Easily one of the best restaurants in Santa Fe. Try the duck or scallops for... More

This restaurant is in the Railyard district, and close to town. We were in the hotel to go to the Southwest Seminars, so because it was close, we stopped by. The menu is diverse, but small. I noticed that they have closed in the once outdoor space and made it an all glass enclosure, with the Teepee outdoors. For dinner,... More

We were here for the Christmas Buffet dinner. The setting was beautiful - great fire in fireplace in the corner. Lots of families - tables are spread out so it's not uncomfortable. The food was buffet. For the most part the dishes were good, the dessert table was plentiful. Our waitress was attentive and friendly.

Ran out of chicken on kids menu; Charged $4 for 1 sausage for breakfast, and $3 for 2 year olds juice. Overpriced.

Located in the Hotel Santa Fe. Uncrowded table arrangement, acoustics good for conversation. We had two servers, one who brought bread and kept our water glasses filled, who appeared sullen. Our principal server was pleasant, but slow. We split the crab cake appetizer. The texture was chewy and the seasoning was bland. I had the salmon, which was unmemorable, and... More

I had a mix up at my hotel and they offered me dinner for 2 at Amaya. I went with an old friend who works in Santa Fe and we really enjoyed. The atmosphere and service is relaxing and warm. We shared a beet, goat cheese salad, very good. She had the duck breast - tender, done just right. I... More

Great food and friendly folks. The waitress actually suggested a combination of 2 main dishes, and the cook made it up like that! Ambiance was perfect.

We recently spent 2 nights in the Hotel Santa Fe, and dined the last night in their on-site restaurant. We were seated at a well lighted table and enjoyed an excellent meal. Since we had eaten lunch quite late, we decided to take only the roast elk which was on the menu; it was delicious, cooked exactly as ordered (rare)... More
