Dined at Luminaria as part of the New Mexico Food Tour and the chef did not disappoint. We dined on the pork belly which was just fabulous. Staff were friendly and attentive - but not invasive. Lovely start to our evening.

The restaurant is kind of hidden but so charming and cozy. The interiors are beautiful and most important the food was delicious. I have to say their tortilla soup was the best I've ever had! We could just just ordered that - it was that good. We went on a chilly fall night and ate inside with the fireplace going... More

My family enjoyed a fantastic wedding dinner here. The chef attended to our group personally and the food was wonderful. The staff was very helpful when we made special requests for a private dining room and serving the wedding cake.

We had lunch here and it was lovely and very quiet in the garden patio. The patio is the best part of this restaurant. The food was good but not great. The service was average.

The ambience on the exterior sitting was lovely. Ordered cheese burgers medium pink. They both came out very well done. We were so hungry and ate them only after showing to our waitress. The sweet potato fries were shriveled Cold fries. Likely sitting around for some time. The manager deleted one from our order. Nice but should have done both.... More

We took the Food Tour of Santa Fe (highly recommended), and this was one of the stops. During the stop, this place was great; our group was seated in the outdoor patio area, which is a lovely setting, and we were served the BEST margaritas we ever had (strawberry jalapeno) and a great tapas-type dish featuring pork belly. .if this...

We are staying in this hotel and had dinner here our first night. It generally gets very good reviews but at least on this night should not be considered in the same category as some of the world class restaurants in Santa Fe. It is more like routine good hotel food....at fairly high prices. Their chicken entree was starred as... More

Three for breakfast, I had eaten dinner there a few years earlier and it was also outstanding. Outside seating was perfect for our breakfast ( I did not realize they were open for breakfast) on a Friday. Service was great and there was a outdoor festival going on right beside the restaurant. We would not hesitate to dine there again.

While walking around Santa Fe, we "stumbled" upon Luminaria, spotting the outdoor fireplace and the patio dining. Since it was a weeknight in September, we had no problem getting a table. We were seated promptly, and the rest of the night the service was great. The wine list is huge, and the menu covers all the basics. The three of... More

Very ordinary food - but understand, after visiting, that the focus is on tourist groups, at least at breakfast (our meal). Cancelled a dinner reservation in hope of finding something more interesting to our palette. It is what it is and has a role. - Just not right for us.
