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

Our experience at the Amaya restaurant was excellent. We were very interested in finding a restaurant serving elk, and found it here!

The Amaya, inside the Hotel Santa Fe is truly outstanding and an exceptional restaurant. Beautiful lighting and atmosphere, and artwork along with Native American flute music on Saturday evenings. We had the pub steak and chicken enchiladas, both were delicious and presented beautifully. Jalapeno margaritas a must!!! Service is wonderful and gracious. The Hotel Santa Fe and The Hacienda are...

It is inside Hotel Santa Fe, The Hacienda and has warm lights, with live music at night and is a good place to be with family or friends. It's not too formal and the service is correct.

My husband and I met friends for lunch at this lovely restaurant.

Two Santa Fe friends suggested meeting for dinner at the Hotel Santa Fe. Although I grew up in the area, I'd never heard of it. (The La Fonda, of course. The Compound, sure. But the Hotel Santa Fe?) I was suspicious: It sounded like a stereotypical (to me, at least) expensive and snooty Santa Fe restaurant. Was I wrong! The... More

The menu was eclectic, with a mix of vegetarian, vegan, meat, and New Mexican entrees. The room is too sparsely furnished at dinner, when the glass walls that during daylight look out onto a nicely landscaped courtyard. they should consider adding some evening lighting to the courtyard to draw the eye away from the interior of the dining room, or...

Outstanding food, service and peaceful views of the outdoors are just a few good reasons to stop at Amaya for a meal. I can vouch for their blue corn blueberry pancakes, which were exceptional, and I heard several people rave about their omelets. In September, it was still warm enough so the staff opened glass doors to provide soothing views... More
