I love the Inn at Loretto and have stayed many times, so this is hard for me to say, but my experience was such a departure from previous visits I felt I should make them known. I visited the patio for lunch with a friend at Luminaria. The patio is lovely and we were seated quickly. It began well with... More

We are longtime Santa Fe visitors and usually stick to our few places, but this trip after a less than great meal at our normal spots we tried this restaurant. Boy was it worth it! I ordered the sea scallops and they were amazing, cooked perfectly and I did my best to not lick the plate. They have some great... More

One of the better known places in Santa Fe is the Inn and Spa at Lorretos but what you may not know is that inside that resort is a wonderful restaurant named Luminaria. It has both a wonderful inside and outside seating area. The inside is very well appointed and has some of the best boothes I've seen. The patio... More

The setting is very comfortable [outside on a covered deck], but the food and service were less than expected from a key"location" hotel. Three of us (out of 5) had the duck breast for our main course. It was awful. It was supposed to have a chili/honey glaze. Nothing could be tasted of either honey or chili. The breast was... More

I can't blame the restaurant! I just wasn't ready for this high priced place. And while I was not casual, I don't think I was dressed for the place and that may have caused some of the sideways glances by the maitre d. Basically, the food was great, but I felt like I was being judged. I won't go back.

We love this bar in Santa Fe, especially in the winter when the fire place is going and the atmosphere is extra cozy. Friendly staff, great drinks, good menu. I had a margarita and Cuban sliders, both very delicious!! My partner had a beer and red chile short rib nachos. Interior feels like old and traditional Santa Fe.

Restaurant was recommended, very attractive building and setting and outstanding service, but the food was not good, and all four of us which dined were very disappointed. Too bad, everything else was excellent, so maybe for appetizers and drink and go somewhere else for dinner.

I saw another review that said they had mixed feelings. I feel the same way. We went to Geronimo the night before, so I already knew that nothing would compare, but I was still disappointed. We got this great outdoor table. The service was really slow to get us our drinks, but we enjoyed the view. Then it rained. But,... More

During the Spanish Market that takes up most of the Plaza area, we friends stopped in to Luminaria for lunch. We had a tiny wait and enjoyed sangria meanwhile. We had a wonderful wrap full of meat and garlic aioli with sweet potato fries and a savory tortilla soup! Such nice wait staff!

The setting is beautiful. We had dinner in the garden with a beautiful view of the sunset. Unfortunately, service was not up to standards. We waited a long time even though there were not many guests that evening, and when our server did come she didn¨'t inquire about our drink order. In general she didn't seem very informed about the... More
