Pasqual's is widely regarded as the top diner in Santa Fe and it lived up to its billing. The food was well prepared, generous portions, all with local flair. The cafe itself has great energy from the staff to the brightly colored murals on the walls. They had an hour wait when we checked in. No matter, it was a... More

Our group of women went here for dinner last night. We ordered different dishes. Two of us ordered a quinoa burger. The actual burger was very tasty, moist and well-prepared. The bun was burnt. I also ordered sweet potato fries as a side but they were inedible. We pointed this out to our server and he sent us home with... More

Wonderful dinner at a community table with most interesting seating partners - 10 in total. Dinner was excellent and the Chili dish was awesome. Beer was excellent and service was spot on.

We had a reservation for two. When we arrived the hostess wanted to put us at a community table. We said no, she then acted like; we were lucky to be there and have a table. We waited and finally got our table for two. Apparently this is a very popular restaurant. Several people were turned away as they did... More

Best to have reservations! Somewhat cramped as they want to get as many chairs and people in as possible. Stuffed squash blossoms were great but too much blu cheese over powered dish. Chicken parm was over done on the outside. Scallops done perfectly. Service a bit spotty, but the place was busy.

This is a small restaurant that serves both breakfast and lunch. Expect to wait for a table during peak Santa Fe weekends. However the wait is worth it! Bothe the breakfast menu and the lunch menu offer ample choices of New Mexican cuisine along with burgers. I had the goat tacos served with roasted Jimmy Nardello Italian frying peppers. WOW...

Café Pasqual's is a great place to dine, either for breakfast or lunch. And it's a busy place too. The margaritas are wonderful. Three of our group either had a chicken quesadilla or enchiladas. The fourth had the egg salad sandwich which was delicious. Your Santa Fe visit should definitely include this fun dining spot. A customer leaving spoke to... More

Had a terrific dinner. Starters, mains, and wine all wonderful. The staff also really attentive and fun. Started with the Little Gem Salad and then had the Vietnamese Scallop Salad (was in a salad mood). Both fresh, visually attractive, and yummy. DH had the bison burger -- it and the fixings were really good. The Mexican wedding cookies (and others)... More

Lovely dinner for 3 with an eclectic mix of American and Latin cuisine with Southwest flair. Definitely make a reservation in advance! Pictures is the bison burger and a filet mignon special :)
