“Very Satisfying Dinner Sans Desert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

While looking for a dinner spot, I noticed Tabla's menus in the lobby of the Hotel St. Francis. The entrée descriptions sounded good and the ones we choose were. Meats from the Niman Ranch and Socorro's Pollo Real are offered. The roasted chicken was superb as was the Angus prime rib, cooked to perfection. Both were flavored with unique New Mexican flavor. Calm, subdued atmosphere to match the evening with very good service. Only negative was that the kitchen closed while we were dining (at 9:00 on a Tuesday night) and we were not able to order desert.

“hectic Sunday brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

The restaurant was very busy for a Mothers day brunch. When your waiter also
is serving a table of 18, you have to cut him a bit of slack. Fortunately another waiter, Jerry,
pitched in to help out. A couple of our requests were misinterpreted but they tried hard.
The maple duck salad and grouper were OK; the french toast brunch special was great.
We love the ambiance of the hotel; the restaurant ambiance is not as warm. We plan to go
back on a "non-special-event" day.

My wife and I enjoyed a nice quiet lunch on a Saturday without the crowds. The food was wonderful and the waiter was very attentive.

“Good for the Second Time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Our second time having dinner here. Beet and goat cheese with baby greens salad was yummy-- even tastier than the first time, over a year ago. The Ruby Trout (from Trucha) was delicious, the Filet Mignon stupendous (done rare). The only glass of red wine from New Mexico, a Dulcetto from Vivac, was truly excellent, mild yet full bodied with depth, paired well with both our entrees. We shared a Goat Milk Flan for the second time, still delicious, though the first time we tried it, it was more creme brulee- ish. This time actually flan-like. Ambiance and view of the streets are charming (Colonial or Old World) and hip at the same time, though the cushions they have on the booth seat need replacing, as one tends to sink too much. The restaurant always seems slow, bar is hopping-- I have no idea why. If the restaurant were full, the noise level would probably be at a high level. Servers where especially attentive. Love that they mention on the menu what is organic, free range, and/or local and where it comes from. Keep missing eating on the patio, as both times it's been too chilly, but I most certainly will be back to try it out.
