We tried several restaurants in Taos, many good ones, but this was by far the best. Food, service, ambiance were all top notch. Really special place.

“Visited On An Off Night?”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

We know many people from Taos and everyone had told us how much they love this restaurant. We made the decision to celebrate our anniversary here. We made reservations a month in advance and arrived that evening to be escorted through "dry storage" and the kitchen. Apparently the front door was out of service. The parking lot was not only muddy but had deep ruts with puddles of water approximately 6" to 12" deep from the winter snows and weather. Addition of hay to the area would have been a big help. I should be commenting about food, but the other stuff was so distracting. Okay, the food was excellent. It was a limited selection but I understand that the menu selections are always changing. The flavors were very good and the owner offered us a wine (not on the menu) which turned out to be an outstanding pairing with the food. We will return in summer to see if we can come in the front door and not walk through a foot of mud.

“Incredible dining-”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Soooo good. I came at the suggestion of the inn I was staying at and didn't know what to expect. Man, it was out of this world! All organic and fresh. The staff was outstanding , as well. Can't wait to return on my next trip to Taos, for sure!! Try the bison burger with kale. Fantastic!

“Great food, good experience”
Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere is warm and very welcoming. The food was really wonderful. Great quality, creative and reasonably priced. The service wasn't in the same league, unfortunately. Selecting the wine and having it brought to our table was somewhat painful and very awkwardly handled. We got what we wanted but it was a process. However, the server was a sweet kid and I suspect he learned from the experience. Bottom line.....we are definitely coming back. Without hesitation.

“The French Laundry meets Alice's Restaurant”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Charming atmosphere, attentive service with a spectacular marriage of flavors. This is the way we believe most people like to eat when dining out. The ingredients are recognizable with an unmatched freshness. There's no pretentiousness here...just incredible food, a nice wine list at a good value. It's on our top 10 most favorite places to eat and dine!
