We were here with a group of 11 and got our own room, which was nice. The service was quite good, as was the food. I ordered the prime rib which I found to be very tasty, but a little difficult to trim (fat and gristle). My husband had the same and was unhappy with it since we'd heard it... More

I had a superb filet, my son a large and excellent salad plus a chocolate dessert that we all shared that also was delicious. And there is an extensive wine list which is reasonably priced.

Another favorite! The fondue is excellent, great burgers, steaks, potatoes and the bar is a fun place to hang out. Good service.

Again, just the best food and service available. A little pricey, but it you can't afford the meal, then don't eat here.

We had a very good meal at the Rio Chamas Steakhouse in Santa Fe last Thursday evening. They have a wide selection of sandwiches and entrees from which to chose. Each entree came with its own unique side-dishes that added to the dish. We loved the elk, salmon, and skirt steak and enchilada with mole sauce; very tasty. The bread... More

Strange experience for our group of 24. Very hesitant to serve us from the bar much. Don't know if they got in trouble in the past or what. Lots of better places with better experiences.
