Very friendly staff. Menu had a good selection. Trout a bit overdone but everything else was really nice. We would go back.

We’ve eaten at the Love Apple each year for the past few years and this year, for the first time, we were disappointed. The food is still nice and the wine selections are excellent (and the portions relatively generous), but the menu hasn’t changed at all since last year at least and the pacing of the kitchen was (at least...

Wonderful food. Terrific service. It was quiet and comfortable. Fresh fresh salad, cornbread was light and hot. Dates with bacon who would a thought! Gnocchi was totally delicious, lamb meatballs were exquisitely flavored. Only down was no Chardonnay by the glass, but the sauvignon blanc was very good

Recommended by a local shop owner, who praised the farm-to-table menu. Outstanding, interesting food. The corn bread was amazing. Had the lamb meatballs (ask to have them cooked medium, if you don't like rare lamb). Delicious, as was the pork carnitas entree.

The food, the atmosphere, and the service all conspire to make The Love Apple a memorable experience. The menu is fresh and innovative, with lots of interesting and unexpected flavors you won't find elsewhere. Housed in an old church, Love Apple's atmosphere is, at once, rustic and chic. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and happy to recommend something to... More

I think we would have enjoyed this more if we knew it was cash only. We were worried the whole time ordering we wouldn't have enough cash and were having to figure it up on the calculator on our phone. We had the Simple Salad which as good, the quesadillas with homemade tortillas which was good and the gnocchi which... More

Some years back, we were turned on to The Love Apple in Taos and we tend to turn others on to it when we bring out-of-town friends to Taos. I don't know if we actually love the food or if it's just an interesting environment with imaginative fare. I have mixed feelings but lean toward thinking that it's really very... More

Some of our experience was very good and some was very average. They only take cash or checks -- no charge cards. Waited quite awhile for our dinner after ordering. Bourbon dates appetizer was delicious. Gnocchi was gummy with hardly any tasso ham (after paying extra for it). Trout was delicious and no bones (wonderful). Mole with tamale was very... More

Teen and I wanted something other than the usual Mexican/Southwestern fare. We stumbled on The Love Apple and ordered an assortment of appetizers and a main dish. All were freshly prepared with taste that explode in your mouth. Teen loved the food and her vegetable gnocci, seasonal salad, tomato soup and charcuterie sampler. Food and service were terrific.

We had dinner on the patio which was lovely. Our salad was great, and they split it for me and my husband at no extra charge. It was plenty for two. He had the trout and I had tacos. The trout looked great but not a ton of food. He was not feeling well so I don't think he was... More
