My husband and I met friends for lunch at this lovely restaurant. It was new to us and we were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful dining room, the delicious food, the varied menu and the superb service. We visited for quite a while before and after we ate. The staff was attentive and gracious throughout. Each of us cleaned our... More

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

Located in the Hotel Santa Fe (which I HIGHLY recommend - see separate review) the ambiance is great and the service is very attentive. I often find that it's a bit stressful finding a restaurant on the first day I check into a hotel, so this is a great way to enjoy the convenience of a very respectable on-site restaurant.... More

Great open air environment with a roof surrounded by a lovely garden. Service was attentive, relaxed and friendly. The patio area allows leashed dogs and fellow diners were relaxed and friendly. Food it top notch with good variety. I could live there.

My wife and I chose, again, to eat at Amaya during our third stay at the Hotel Santa Fe. This was our first time to dine in the new restaurant. The new restaurant is open and airy.
