“A Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

One of the best places in Santa Fe. The food is gourmet, and different. The presentation of the food is not only eye-appealing but one cannot wait to dig in. My husband and I have been to the Coyote three times and plan on going back.

“Rooftop Cantina a disappointrment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Coyote Cafe's rooftop Cantina was disappointing on our recent visit. A crowded and very noisy space, made less pleasant by the sound of metal chairs scraping on concrete floors. "Tropical" iced tea was the worst beverage I have ever tasted...exchanged for hot black tea...served in a tall non-tempered glass (hence too hot to pick up, and at risk of shattering from thermal shock). Food was generic bar food, no better, though with nice presentation. Can't afford the exclusive indoor Cafe, and won't return to the Cantina.

“Hot and good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

I love spicy food and got the best prawns I've ever eaten! My husband doesn't like the chiles, but he was very pleased with his elk.

Had the Baja Fish tacos and the fabulous mango salsa! The Kobe beef burger was delicious and the fries were perfect!

“Bartender inside, best drinks in Santa Fe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We are all tempted to sit in the second story bar, looking down on the tourists passing below, however, do this, and miss the best mixed drinks in town! Go to the bar inside the restaurant and experience a mixologist who knows what he's doing. Great interpretations, he even invented something for us on the fly. Would definitely go back!
