The food in this restaurant is very good and the atmosphere is fun and interesting with original artwork set in an authentic, historical building. Staff were friendly but very busy on our visit. I would recommend calling ahead if possible.

I like that Pink Adobe has options beyond the standard Southwest fare. I recently had one of the best lamb dinners I have ever had here. They were serving Colorado rack of lamb and it was absolute perfection. This place has been here for years and I am told that it just doesn't disappoint. Great waitstaff as well. Reservations are...

We dine here every year we are in town, but this time was a big disappointment. Better options in town for the price.

On Sunday, we and another couple had a Restaurant Week dinner at the at the Pink Adobe. All four of us ordered the Pink's signature dish. It was supposed to be a 6 1/2 oz NY Strip Steak Dunnigan. When the food arrived, the ladies got the small steak and my friend and I were served considerably larger steaks with... More

I've been to the Pink Adobe several times over the past 30+ (?) years and it's never let me down. Quite the opposite. It's an all time favorite of mine. During my last trip several restaurants had a special Restaurant Week menu. I had a salad and Plato Mexicano. Both were excellent. I think I might have heard some complimentary... More

Sure, The Pink Adobe is not the greatest Mexican restaurant in Santa Fe, but for a first stop to enjoy a margarita and a plate of blue corn enchiladas and a side of posole, hit the spot. We visited the cantina first and enjoyed its coziness and the locals. However, I don't recommend the house/happy hour margarita (too sweet &... More

They may have other great things on their menu but I am addicted to their Steak Dunnagin - a nice steak smothered in green chili with various veggies - a truly excellent meal.

Having enjoyed this restaurant in the past, my husband and I returned last fall. Although the house itself continues to be very special (a good place for a drink at the bar or patio in warm weather), the service was extremely slow and the food was nothing special. We had to remind the waiters of our existence several times.

I liked the dark bar ambiance, but not sure how many feet, or inches of it I saw. I went for the house steak(s) because of all the reviews, and very Okay. Next time I would try the Cajun. Four hundred restaurants saying can I Christmas tree your plate? Cajun, my first hunch, might force a chief to go with... More

My boyfriend and I went here to eat on New Year's Eve.. I hadn't been there since they still had the wonderful front room with the banco's and old fireplace, and the new buyers. Never, ever, will I go back here..it's ruined. They may have Rosalie's old recipes but the quality of the food and the way it was cooked... More
