Great dinner spot

We went here with a group of 12 and (with a reservation) were seated on the patio. Great service and good food. I can't say it was anything super spectacular, thus the 4 star rating. However, it was solid food, great atmosphere, and worth visiting when in town.

Well, where to begin. First we get there and sat on the patio. The music was so loud we couldn't really talk around the table. We asked if they could turn it down a little, that didn't happen. Then on top of the loud music we got to listen to radio commercials because they just had the radio on, really.... More

We walked in for lunch off a recommendation and was surprised it was empty. We had the fish tacos and lamb tostadas . It was fantastic. We would have gone back if we had another day! There was much more on the menu that we were interested in. Would go back!

We ate here on a Sunday night, when the place was not busy. Very loud music, especially on the patio, made us choose indoor seating. Service was friendly and at first attentive. We ordered a grilled wedge salad, the barbecued chicken, and blue corn chicken enchiladas. The salad was served promptly, an interesting twist on the traditional wedge. The server... More

We tried Elevation one Sunday evening. Many places in santa fe are closed on Sunday. All 4 of us enjoyed the food and beers (great that they have negro modelo on tap). I had the seared tuna salad, very good. Everything is quite inexpensive, especially the beer. We appreciated that after looking at many menus online where the entrees are... More

My wife and I were taking a long weekend in Santa Fe recently and figured we would be enjoying meal after meal of Southwest food. But after our first lunch we quickly decided a constant diet of that would be too much. So my wife searched Yelp and found Elevation Bistro and the front desk folks at the Hilton also... More

Visited Elevation Bistro based on TA reviews. Husband and son enjoyed the mussels. I had the grilled cheese and tomato bisque. It was so tasty. Maria, the owner, pulled up a chair and shared the evening's specials. She was quite attentive. The food was really good.

The food was so so. There was a pretty good menu for a place that looked more like a bar than a restaurant. The service was good, but seemed to fade towards the end of the meal. Our food was a bit over cooked and dry.
