Dining options: Dinner, Reservations
Description: Santa Fe Uptown is an off-shoot of longtime Tivoli, NY favorite, Santa Fe. A warm, inviting and festive atmosphere sets the scene for a fun meal of the freshest ingredients along with the best tequila selection in Ulster County. Committed to serving all natural, always fresh, made-from-scratch menu items, Santa Fe Uptown has quickly gained the reputation of being one of Kingston's most popular restaurants.Santa Fe Uptown features a large yet cozy U-shaped bar that has been a local gathering place for over 50 years (when it was known as 11 Main). There are two intimate dining rooms with boldly colored walls and filled with the twinkle of the 100+ candles that are lit nightly.

“Delicious food and drink”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

I reviewed this restaurant in the past and wanted to share an update as I've visited numerous times since my original post. The food and drink are consistently delicious and everyone is very attentive. The chips are delicious and and the salsa is always fresh. The seasonal veggie burrito is also fresh and always a great option. I highly recommend Santa Fe; great atmosphere and great food!

“Great food, service and drink”
Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

Went to uptown for the first time tonight. Got there early, perfect timing as it filled up while we were there. Had the calamari appetizer and was very pleased. A light coating and cooked perfectly. The pork tacos and steak burrito were excellent. They had a good selection of beer and the margarita was made to perfection. I would highly recommend this resturant for a good meal with good service.

“Good food, friendly people”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Santa Fe in Kingston new York has delicious food, good drinks and what looks like a hopping bar scene. we were seated very quickly and an waitress brought us fresh tortilla chips and a mild salsa. Service was attentive, but not obtrusive. I enjoyed a vegetable burrito, which came with rice and beans and a small fresh salad. My companions each ordered the scallop taco (the special of the night), which they both declared outstanding. We had a half pitcher of Mango Margarita on the rocks. It was delicious and had the right balance between tart and sweet. we were well satisfied with our dinner but decided to go for one dessert. we chose the Cappachino ice cream sundae. It came on two brownies and was more than enough for three people. I have only two small criticisms. One was that the music was a bit to loud to talk over, and the other was that the restrooms are too dark. A light over the sink would help.

“STILL THE BEST”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Have been there many times since initial visit shortly after its opening. It now has a large deck outside which is used seasonally and which is a great addition. The menu is occasionally tweaked so as to vary the available choices. Friendly atmosphere. Great food. Super drinks.

“The most fresh quality Family Friendly Mexican we ever had- and we live in NYC!”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

We just travelled through Kingston and what a plea sent surprise. Our two young children and we parents enjoyed fresh quality food at a reasonable price!! The vege burrito was perfectly balanced, not too much cheese, lovely sweet potato/spinach fall taste!! Guacamole was perfect for kids and the Plantains were the best version we ever had!!!
