Worth the 15 minute drive from downtown Santa Fe. The menu is innovative and the food is prepared with great care--so fresh with local veggies. This is truly a great restaurant in a gorgeous setting overlooking a pond and 70 acres of beautifully maintained grounds....More

This is a gorgeous place that reeks of exclusivity, with locked gates. The views outside are very pretty with a small pond, etc. I found the server very good and friendly, but rather overworked and rushing around, I ordered a crab/avocado salad. There was about...More

Chef is outstanding as is the waitstaff. Menu options are perfect for a 4-5 day staff! We still did not get to try everything.

I first came here in the spring and now it's my favorite place to dine when I need a respite from the desert. The dining room has lush views of trees and a pond. The outstanding food choices have been the goat cheese in phyllo,...More

Outstanding green chili cheeseburger. Quier atmosphere with music overlooking tranquil pond. Broad appetizing menu and deserts. Knowledgeable and attentive service. Well worth the short drive to have a memorable dining experience that is like taking a holiday. Don't forget the ancient cottonwood tree on leaving.

Visited here after visiting Ranch de las Golondrinas down the road. Beautiful setting. Had the crab and avocado salad which was tasty. Portions are small but good. I ordered raspberry iced tea which was way too sweet for me s I ended up drinking water.

Dining at Sunrise Springs is a unique experience that may change the way you think and feel about food. Our Executive Chef, Rocky Durham embraces the idea that food is a potent elixir for the body and mind. We work closely with local farmers to source seasonally available herbs, fruits, and vegetables to create a selection of vibrant and flavorful dishes. Our in-house guests enjoy breakfast in the Sages Café, a delightful dining space that imbues the warm earth tones of the natural landscape. The serene setting also includes a koi pond that flows from inside the Sages to the outdoor fountain and patio. Lunch, dinner and Sunday Brunch are now open to the public in the newly-restored Blue Heron Restaurant, a historic building overlooking the spring-fed pond.
