My sister and I had a great meal at Santa Fe. We loved the little charming town of Tivoli and we loved the menu. Delicious shrimp tacos and totally yummy frozen margaritas. The complimentary chips and salsa were very good, too. The crowd is fun -- all ages, nice and casual. Definitely recommended!

We recently dined at Sante Fe for an impromptu weeknight family dinner. It's corner location in a quaint rural downtown which provided a nice setting for our outside dining. We shared various appetizers including their Wed. night chicken wing special. They were worth the lengthy wait. Our server was new, which was evidenced by much slower than typical service combined...

Seated in a room nearest the kitchen made us feel like we were in a movie that was being fast forwarded. It felt like the entire staff was running in and out of the kitchen with no real purpose. When someone enters you would think they should come out with plates of food, but this wasn't the case. Servers would... More

Went here tonight with my wife and we were pleased. My wife had a margarita and it was very good. The complimentary chips and salsa were a nice touch and tasted great. We had the guacamole but thought it was a bit plain, needs some spice. My wife had the pulled pork taco and it was great. I had the... More

Santa Fe has been in Tivoli, NY for many years. It is a staple for kids from nearby Bard college, and parents picking up the tab for their kids and friends on visiting day. The menu is typical Americanized mexican food, large portions, totally ok but nothing to go out of your way for. It's a nice change of pace... More

Nice atmosphere, good service. Outdoor porch is great in conducive weather. Sit down to chips and salsa while you peruse the menu.

Tivoli must ... food is okay, but not consistent . The wait staff are friendly and helpful. But tend to congregate in little groups when not busy, and giggle and chap. Drinks are okay but a little lite . Not spicy sudomexican food, but have sauces to add. Just a good time, and don't expect too much.
