“Live Entertainment- Good food, good people watching!”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

We were staying at the La Fonda and it was convenient to go downstairs for a bite to eat. The service was good and the place was busy! The hotel is gorgeous and typical Santa Fe style. We were excited when the Country Western band began to play and the dance floor filled up with dancers. The menu was nice and had an assortment of food. The portions were big. My 12 year old got fish and chips and she finished almost the entire plate- they were that good. My husband and I stuck to New Mexican cuisine and we thought their chile sauces were tasty. The waitstaff was on the ball and we ordered margaritas after dinner, so we could hear the band some more. Honestly, I could not tell the difference between the "house" margaritas and the special $12 margaritas. You could tell they used fresh lime juice, they were very good! I would come here to eat, even if we weren't staying in the hotel. We didn't eat at the lunch buffet during our stay, but it smelled delicious and there were always people there eating.

“Shopping, dancing and cocktails”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

The lounge at la Fonda is a fun place to do some dancing, have cocktails with friends, meet new friends and dancing partners, enjoy live music and do some window shopping if you feel like it!

“Excellent Mexican Buffet”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

First - I am not a fan of buffets, however, I definitely have to make an exception for the Mexican Buffet at LaFiesta Loung in La Fonda Hotel. The food was fresh and very good, there was a good selection to choose from, and the staff was pleasant and attentive without hovering. Would highly recommend the green chile enchiladas and green chile stew, also the custard dessert. Would definitely go back next time I'm in Santa Fe.

“Tasty meal”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Very good new mexico style food at this restaurant. It's right off the plaza so the location is perfect. Prices are a little high but are inline with the surrounding area. My only complaint is the salsa was "sweet" instead of spicy. However, the quac was fantastic.

“Great Food and Service”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We have stopped for lunch several times every time we visit Santa Fa. Always have great service and the food is always fresh. Don't forget to visit the bell tower in the evening for a drink while watching the sunset. An Awesome place!
