We stopped here for a glass of wine and snacks after an afternoon of exploring the museums. We were seated right away and offered a wine list. My first choice was not available, so I went with a New Mexico wine, Ponderosa, and it was excellent. It became part of our vacation after that to try and find Ponderosa wine!... More

We had the best waiter for our lunch at Museum Hill Café. He offered suggestions and helpful advice laced with good humor. Our group was unanimous in giving this dining spot an A+. You may either dine inside or outside on the patio. We chose the latter. Dishes to try - the duck flautas and the salmon tostadas. The gazpacho... More

Had the Chicken enchiladas and was pleasantly surprised at the quality and the taste at a Museum Café. It was very crowded on a Sat. afternoon, but sat on the patio and chilled enjoying the pleasant atmosphere and weather. Will be back............

We have eaten at Museum Hill Cafe several times. Why? Location. It is convenient and lovely. But.....the service! It is never consistent or thorough. One of my friends was on a special diet and could only eats greens/lettuces with a little olive oil. The charge was the same as the salad with shrimp. She paid $14. Really?? There is a... More

We enjoyed our food very much. My breakfast burrito was a little different than the usual burrito in Santa Fe. Very light and fluffy. Everyone enjoyed their food and the homemade desserts. Our wait person Richard was lively and helpful. We went early on Sunday and there were not too many people there yet. The views are beautiful. We advised... More

In our trip to Museum Hill we have often stopped at the cafe and always enjoyed the food, the opportunity to relax and the nice waiters. It is always slow so if you're looking for a break it's great, if you are looking for a 20 minute quick snack,it isn't likely to work

How can a restaurant continually have such poor service? Beats me, but there you have the beautiful cafe at Museum Hill with waiters scurrying about and no one to seat people waiting. I watched a couple wait 15 minutes even though the restaurant was half full. Walking to the front entrance for a coffee or a coke can be an... More
