Have eaten here 4 or 5 times and it has been really good each time. I am stuck on the trout and the cornbread is a wonderful addition. Love the atmosphere, food and service at The Love Apple. Look forward to next time!

I've been going here for years and the quality has been consistently high. I usually take my sweety here on Valentines Day, or her birthday. The atmosphere and soft lighting in the ancient church is very romantic. I have had a memorable family get together here with my mother and children at the long table up on the pulpit. Service...

I loved this place! Everything was fresh, unique, and delicious! They use locally sourced products in all menu items. If you're a foodie, this is the place for you! I just wish they had locally sourced wines, too. There are some fantastic wineries in Northern NM.

First ate here a few years ago and equated it to the best Thanksgiving meal you have ever experienced. This visit not so much. Perhaps the Love Apple was under the radar a few years back, but this trip very crowded, service uneven and a very hurried hostess on Sunday night. Most discouraging was the food. The "big" chartreuse plate... More

Love Apple is a culinary little gem in Taos. The food is outstanding. The starters and salads slightly better than the entrees in my view. However the antelope tenderloin was the best main course I had in Taos. The setting is in a little old church that preserves that Pueblo feeling. The restaurant is small with 13 tables so reservations... More

Local had recommended so thought it would be a wonderful dinner, but that was not the case. We try to eat at local establishments when traveling. Waited 15 minute after seated to see a server. Food was not what was described on menu. Salad with warm goat cheese was delicious. Remainder of meal was a TOTAL disappointment!

The Love Apple is a great little place right outside Taos in El Prado. Truly farm to table fare prepared in a warm and inviting atmosphere. The servers are very knowledgeable of the menu and the wine list and can help walk you through the choices. Remember that they accept cash or checks only

This is a daring little restaurant with a nice menu. The muffins are a good choice with your meal. Spouse had the trout dinner with greens. He loved the trout. Salad was good, but not exceptional, so won't order it next time as my main meal. Excellent service and attention to details. Must pay with cash or check.

I took my husband here for his birthday on a friend's recommendation. The space is a former adobe church that is sparsely decorated and painted bright white. It was elegantly simple, which is precisely what we wanted. I don't normally go for new takes on traditional food, but what we ordered was fantastic. We ordered the Love Apple tacos, the... More

This place is a must when visiting Taos. The food is great and the atmosphere is perfectly charming. My husband and I always enjoy our time here. The food is consistently good and the service helps make any visit there special!
