Description: Vinaigrette is a bright and modern bistro housed within a charming old adobe in historic Santa Fe. The hip restaurant specializes in creative entree salads, soups and grilled meats that utilize fresh, organic and locally sourced ingredients--including produce grown on the restaurant's farm just north of town. Excellent, affordable wine list and microbrew beer on draft complement the cuisine. Open 11am to 9pm, Monday through Saturday.

Some friends invited us to dine with them here. The restaurant is a bit of a challenge to locate, especially after dark, as it's off an alley in Santa Fe (which is a series of alleys anyway). Parking is extremely limited. Emergency exit doors were blocked with unused benches from nearby tables. The dining room is small and not well heated in the winter. Although not an extensive selection, I enjoyed the soup menu and the sourdough bread was excellent - crusty exterior with soft bread interior and a solid sourdough taste. The salads, which comprise most of the menu, are ladened with organic-garden-fresh vegies, but typical of Santa Fe, there are some unusual twists to each one. You can't select your own dressing but must deal with what is assigned to each dish. I didn't go hungry, but won't likely go back just because it's not my style (or price).

I dropped by this location after having a fantastic dinner at the location in ABQ and it was night and day. The only reason I am giving two stars instead of one star was because the management recognized how bad the experience was and comped me--without me asking--my appetizer to make up for it. That was the one professional touch of the whole evening. The hostesses was rude and arrogant, the waiter bumbling and mixed up the order and the kitchen served me a main dish that was obviously burnt. It astonishes me that they tried to serve it. Given the other good reviews on this website it is entirely possible that it was simply a bad night--it happens. But based on my limited sample it is worth the drive to go to the one in ABQ.

How wonderful to find a vegetarian friendly restaurant with plenty of choice. Wonderful salad choices and great service too.

I had never been here for dinner, so enjoyed a meal here with friends one chilly night. The place was only about 1/4 full, so the usual reverberating sound within the space was only moderate as opposed to when it is full. The food was great...two of us had hearty soup bowls while the third had a salad. We asked for bread and the server brought a basket, which was empty (?). Asked again, and she brought a full basket of good bread with olive oil. Overall, the disappointment was the service. The young gentleman who took our drink orders didn't seem to know all the options and the waitress appeared disconnected. Anyway, I'll go back for the food..although a tad expensive. For three, with 3 teas and tax, $39.

these folks make the best salads, period. it was very hard to make a decision form the menu. they have an organic farm in nambe, i htink and all or a lot of their vegis come from there. they may seem pricy but they are BIG. we left happy and satisfied and feeling good because it was such a healthy meal. cute cute place too, an older adobe home redone as a restaurant set back from cerrillos rd in the railroad district.
