We love to try new and "in" restaurants in Santa Fe...and find ourselves often tired of the "regulars." Luminaria is a regular...and one of the first restaurants that we enjoyed repeatedly when we moved to Santa Fe. We somewhat tired of the menu, but always loved the cocktail lounge area for drinks in front of a roaring fire in winter.... More

I live in Santa Fe and go to this place with friends three or four times a year. This past Sunday my meal was so delicious I am imagining how soon I can return, I had the Lobster green chili macaroni and cheese. It was the best I ever had. The cheese sauce was superb, the macaroni cooked perfectly and... More

The Luminaria is located in the Inn and Spa at Lorretto. When in Santa Fe I eat at excellent restaurants such as Pink Adobe and Coyote Cafe and avoid hotel restaurants. Snow and cold were the motivation to stay in the hotel. Breakfast was excellent with eggs Benedict. Eggs poached just right, thick ham and wonderful Hollandaise. Returned the next... More

A very elegant dining room! My husband and I are here in late March (we still are here). Even though the terrace is not yet open, the big french doors, however, still provide a good view and an excellent sense of space. There are alcoves of seating in the dinning room which are cozy and provide privacy for conversation. Our... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful breakfast at Luminaria. We were a bit surprised to be the only patrons on a Wednesday morning at 9am and thought perhaps it was closed.

Be sure to dine alfresco if weather permits; ambiance personified while you sit beneath trees and twinkling lights with great view. You can't go wrong with anything on this menu but start with their tortilla soup to set your palate up for great expectations.

The salad was tasty. Spinach with strawberries, feta, and a jalapeño vinaigrette. The lamb was cooked perfectly. Then came the chocolate mousse, amazing. They handled the gluten free request perfectly, never complaining about all my questions. Service was wonderful. Also breakfast each morning was tasty and so filling I didn't need lunch!

This is a wonderful restaurant, nice decor, beautiful surroundings. I took my partner here for her birthday. She had the lamb chops, stating that "they were the best she'd ever had".
