We had a wonderful dinner in this restaurant which is located in a historic adobe building. We started with crab cakes which were crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. I had the elk special and my wife had the salmon with green...Chiles and both were grilled to perfection. Delicious! On a different evening, we enjoyed happy hour at the Dragon Room Bar. We snagged table out on the patio and savored: Pink Dragons (prickly pear margaritas), clams Lucifer and shrimp ceviche tostadas. Heavenly! ‘So glad the Pink Adobe is still shining after all these years for us to enjoy.More

The food here was excellent. The service was also very good. I gave this only 4 stars because for the prices I felt we should have at least had a table cloth not a bare wrought iron table. It definitely wouldn't keep me from returning...just found it surprising.More

Had great cocktails in the adjoining bar before dinner and it was delightful. The restaurant servers seemed to be new...and frightened. The food was not good at all. The side of posole on the enchilada plate were hard as marbles. The plate was a mess...of ingredients, none of which were good. So don't get the chile, the enchiladas, or the rellenos. Maybe when the staff shortage improves, the will get better kitchen help. But the ambience is still very nice. Pricey!More

The restaurant has a very nice decoration but very bad service. They are rude and inappropiate with the customers. totally non professional service. Moreover, they are charging drinks that you did not ordered and they did not recognize the mistakes. It very easy to get...mistakes in the bills and there is no possibility to get separate checks. I do not recommed this place at all.More

We went for an early dinner. We were seated right away. The service was very good. We had the clams for an appetizer and the sauce was the best part of our meal. We couldn't stop eating it. My husband had steak for an entrée...and I had Salmon, both were excellent.More

Returned to the Pink Adobe after a hiatus of 44 years. Originally celebrated my Dad's birthday there in 1978 when I was in high school. Brought my wife and son back to celebrate my 61st birthday. Great Ambiance and food quality were just as I...remembered! Made my 23 year old son promise to come back and share the experience later in his life to keep the tradition going.More

The building is quaint and charming but the food was not good and not worth the price. We had a combo of meals including crab cakes, salmon, enchiladas and the steak they are known for. The crab cakes were burned and if they had not...been would have just been basic level crab cakes. The steak was ordered medium rare and was cooked correctly but such a tough piece of meat it was difficult to cut and eat. The flavor was okay, nothing outstanding. Salmon was bland. Maybe the bar would be a better way to visit this cute spot but not waste a meal.More

I've been to Pink Adobe four times, the first in 2009, the most recent last week. The recent visit was reminder why I return. It is a no-pretentions, atmospheric, period, adobe building with fireplaces in each small dining room, an outside patio away from the...street and a bar off the courtyard, keeping the dining rooms intimate and quiet. It was a cold, wet evening so we chose the first dining room with just four tables. The menu reads as if it were developed during the apex of the Nouvelle Cuisine movement - a compliment. We shared fried zucchini with aioli - beautifully fried with a light tempura breading and remarkably creamy flesh inside: the most satisfying fried Zuch I have ever had. And the Aoili was beautifully emulsified with slight lemon, piquant finish. Getting the interior of the Zuch that creamy without it loosing its integrity is difficult - too long in the frier and it dehydrates, not enough and its tough. This blew away the same dish I had at Izaname the night prior. I then had the very traditionally prepared herb rubbed, double lamb racks served with jalapeño jelly, mashed whites and grilled asparagus. Perfectly medium rare, the lamb was delicious - moist with caramelized meat proteins close to the bone as was the asparagus and taters. I would have loved a bit of Jus. The jelly was one note. My co-diners had Tournedos - well prepared, moist and very flavorful. For desert we shared a Tres Leches cake, the traditional multi layer milky indulgence. This not -so-sweet version was super creamy with a great texture finished with raspberry redux and fresh raspberries. I was melt in your mouth, confection goodness and a reminder that sweets are best, both texturally and otherwise when less sweet. An immensely staying meal.More

Their menu on-line and even opening times on-line continue to be incorrect. It can't be that hard to do an update! So expect that it opens later than shown and prices are quite a bit higher. Food was good, but there are many good restaurants...in Santa Fe. Their big claim to fame is that they are located in one of the oldest buildings in Santa Fe. I doubt we will go back.More

Rosalea's French Apple Pie was a big hit with our guests. The staff...is friendly and efficient. The atmosphere in this charming old adobe building is warm and intimate.

We’ve always had a good experience at Pink Adobe until our last visit. Atmosphere is great, roaring fire was cozy. Waitress was nice, the food was lacking. We ordered Chile Rellenos, and Blue Corn Enchalidas. They were served with dry and crunchy rice, beans and...posole. It’s hard to believe they could ruin all three items. Chile Relleno was tough and goat cheese had an unpleasant taste. With so many choices in Santa Fe, don’t think we’ll be going back any time soon. It was our Anniversary dinner and a big disappointment! I hope they can make improvements!!!More

If you want to soak up some atmosphere, this little place is a great way to do it. Food is authentic new mexican but quality was only average. The bar next door, The Red Dragon, was great for a drink and atmosphere.

Just people watching. Not a lot of places, if any, have live music right now due to COVID-19.

Just dialed them and their regular message is up (they open after 4:00). I left them a message advising that they should dial up TA and get it out that there's no permanent closure. I CAN'T IMAGINE that they are closed.
