You'll be glad you stumbled onto this hole-in-the-wall bistro!

My wife and I were browsing around the shops in Santa Fe, NM and stumbled onto Elevation Bistro, and we're glad we did! My wife ordered their "elevated" green chile mac and cheese, and I had an Anaheim Chili stuffed wtih calibicetas (sauteed squash, zucchini, roasted corn, onions, etc.) served over... read more

Had dinner there tonight. Everything was wonderful from the service to the food. Had squash & zucchini strings with grilled chicken in pesto sauce. My friend had the BBQ chicken. Both meals were delicious and portions were large. I will defiantly go back.

Burger was very good, Green Chile Mac & Cheese was very good. It was raining and most of the table are outside. Inside was very small. Would recommend!

Perhaps we chose a very slow time to eat, but we were the only patrons eating at this restaurant (lunch). The outdoor patio was very nice (they were quite cooperative when I asked them to turn down the loud music), and our food was good. Would definitely recommend lunch here.

Great fish tacos! Not too big a portion, but fish tastes fresh for New Mexico. Fairly extensive menu too. Right in the heart of the plaza shopping area.

After we got shafted on reservations at another restaurant on a Friday night, we called elevation and they got us in within 20 minutes. Maria was awesome and a great salesman boasting about the local ingredients and great chefs. The food was quite good. She told us the servings were huge so we split the squash soup, the watermelon salad... More

This was my favorite new restaurant in santa fe..The menu has changed less offerings..I really don't think it's as good as last fall..Maybe there has been a big change in the Kitchen...The menu is not the same as seen on urbanspoon...

We enjoyed our dinner from the soup to the dessert. We had a colorful and creative red pepper soup, delicious entrees (the veggie poblano and the so tender pork tenderloin), and awesome sweet pear/triple chocolate cake. The patio is a nice place, staff is friendly, it worth the price. A very good adress in Santa Fe!

Fairly priced food, without pretentiousness but with all the creativity. Service was warm and attentive. Sante Fe is a sleepy town, and this restaurant was open for a late meal that was memorable. The stuffed poblano with quinoa and veggies was delicious.
