I've been twice since moving to Santa Fe and really enjoy this place. The food and pastries are delicious and the setting is lovely. As other reviewers have mentioned, the service can be spotty, but I have not experienced any outright rudeness.

We stopped in for a light bite and ended up have coffee and sweets. What a decadent selection and the waitstaff was most helpful. We added this to our list of places we want to return.

You don't hear or read much about this restaurant. Our Concierge recommended as it was close to our hotel and we were tired from traveling all day! We each had the beef bourguignon and it was delicious. The noodles were cooked al dente and we spit a green salt with just the right mix of oil and vinegar. The service... More

We were in Santa Fe for a week and ate here 3x ... if that tells you anything. Had lunch once and dinner, twice. We enjoyed the quaint ambiance and created combined and prepared food. They have an excellent wine menu and our server, Molly, was very knowledgeable and recommended the perfect wine both nights. Entrees we enjoyed were duck... More

1. My wife and I went to Sunday 'brunch' at Chez Mamou. Let me save you some time and give you the abridged version of this review: a. There were very few customers in the restaurant so the servers weren't busy. b. Food was good and priced accordingly. c. Desserts (Tart) and wine are way overpriced (hey, we're not on... More

The service can be lackluster but the food is great. Just like Paris! I am a concierge here in town and send people here all of the time due to the food value alone. The side patio is wonderful in the summer and the front patio is pet friendly ... if your pet is friendly. Most food items are reasonably... More

1pm Sunday, hadn't eaten yet (went to church and took communion), was in the car with two sprained ankles, a sprained right hip and lower back, (so to say I didn't feel well at all is a gross understatement) and was really in a lousy mood. So I sent my husband in to Chez Mamou for a take out snack... More

I love this very authentic little restaurant and ordinarily, I'd rate it five stars. The food is excellent. The atmosphere is excellent. The value is excellent. However, and most unfortunately, on my most recent visit--October 22, 2016, for lunch with nine colleagues--our server's attitude and behavior tainted our otherwise lovely lunch in such a way that I cannot in all...

This was a Sunday night and was our last night in Santa Fe. We made reservations and were seated promptly. It seemed to throw the server that we didn't want to order everything all at once (we tend to order an appetizer and order the entree after) and that seemed to displease her. Despite this, the mussels were excellent as... More
