“Delightful Dinner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

We were there early and we're seated promptly. Old church, wine bottles, lit candles, fresh roses...lovely!
We ordered the cornbread, apple & cheese quesadillas for appetizers and found them both good. We had the special that night of beef stew. It was so delicious! It was so much more than a stew with a wonderful flavor pallet. Chicken tacos were served with a orange cabbage slaw that was good. We would return to try several other dishes.

“A Rare Culinary Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

It was a memorable culinary and sensory experience! Customers are led through the kitchen to create an anticipatory sensation of good things to come. It is a relatively small restaurant with an intimate atmossphere. We ordered Braised Local Beef Short Ribs for apetizer and a Grilled Ruby Rainbow trout. Both were prepared just right. This is an experience visitors to Taos ought not miss!

“Romantic and delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

You enter through the kitchen so you get a glimpse of where the magic happens. The service was great and so was the food. I had wild boar tenderloin and local bolita beans. My wife had beef brisket tacos and we shared a wilted spinach salad. They served chilled water from old wine bottles, there are candles on each table and the atmosphere is warm and intimate.

“Amazing food and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

This was one of the best meals I've had in a while. The salad with pomegranate seeds, pecans, local honey and warm goat cheese was delicious, trout was perfectly cooked, the quinoa-piñon fritter amazing... and the apple cake dessert with vanilla ice cream was a perfect ending to the meal. The service was excellent. We would definitely go out of our way to return. Not to be missed if you are in the Taos area.

“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

We read about the love apple on tripadvisor. What a great place. We made reservations and I am glad we did the place was packed. The setting is unique and the staff very friendly and knowledgable. The food was fresh and delicious and the wine list very reasonable. It was a little expensive but we were on vacation. Will go back next time we are in Taos.
