My husband and I have lived here since April 2016, and this is one of the few places we keep coming back to. Not too pricey, lots of variety on the menu for vegans, New Mexican green chile and guacamole (voted by us as best guac in Santa Fe), as well as more American dishes. The service is always outstanding,... More

The filet with enchiladas (green chili) are to die for. Also the eggs Benedict with tomatillos. The red sauce can be a bit spicy, but the posole was equally delicious in small bites! : ) Nice big portions, no "artsy" portions. Very attentive and friendly waitstaff.

This is a favorite for me for breakfast or lunch when I'm around the Santa fe Plaza. Good variety, I especially like the trout. And the setting is SO Santa Fe and really beautifully festive.

This is a place to see and be seen in Santa Fe, and the food was delicious. We ate here for breakfast and dinner, and everything was great. They also have gluten-free bread and handle food allergy issues well. The service was friendly and helpful.

The food and atmosphere were great, the space is bright and nice to sit in. Its inside the hotel, so its fun to check out the lobby. Very clean, upscale food, we felt good after eating here VS your normal butter-filled breakfast fare. We were there pretty early in the morning (8ish) and it was quiet, mostly older couples. Our...

We only go there for the enchilada because its that good and don't want to risk a bad choice. The service was good and the prices don't break the bank.

We usually stay at La Fonda when in Santa Fe, and La Plazuela is a natural for breakfast. The servings are large and the food is great. The atmosphere is fabulous.

We had lunch here on our first day in Santa Fe. The setting is lovely and the food is OK. Not quite average but not transcendent to very good, either.

I had a chance to visit this very popular restaurant but found a few questions. THe torta de borrego was mainly mayonaise which killed it. THe chile chowder on the other hand was great.
