“Good food in the bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We split a steak sandwich and lighter menu items in the bar and this was perfect. Solid food and good ambience. The restaurant is attractive and there are real, honest to god etchings on the walls depicting western themes. Very few commercial establishments put up real art. Bravo!

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Excellent food, with half-size salad portions and great atmosphere. Park across the street in the government lot after business hours for a short walk to the restaurant!

“Uniquely Santa Fe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

This was our second experience here. Although a little hard to find after dark well worth the search! The waiter's recommendation of the mussels and mushroom soup was spot on. The Chama chopped salad with sirloin far exceeded our expectations. And when we found they had a 2009 bottle of Cakebread cab our experience was complete.
This is a fantastic restaurant with fantastic food that does not disappoint. The wait staff was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable.
We can't wait to return to Santa Fe for the best dinning experience.

We tried this place on the recommendation of our B&B hostess. Fondue was delicious and fun. Staff was friendly and service was great! Pecan pie for dessert!
