I have been coming to this restaurant since I was a little girl and it's still breathtaking for me. I can't think of a restaurant that is more "Santa Fe". The food is good (can be spicy, so watch out!). I feel like it is a bit pricey though - you can get as good food for less, but the... More

Being a sucker for the simplest of things, the charming maitre d' wearing one of his many tailor-made shirts, put us in a certain mood. As if we had discovered the most discriminating of places just on the evidence of a man dressed in a linen shirt. A Pink linen shirt. This seemed to set the stage for a magical... More

We have eaten at La Plazuela many times in the past. The food seemed a little underseasoned and not as on point as the times we have eaten here before. We ordered the petite filets and they were a bit bland. That being said, the wait staff was as good as always and the atmosphere was great. We will certainly... More

Wanted something to eat, nothing heavy but still delicious. But it was late and most places were closed. We crossed our fingers that the hotel would still have the dining room open. Hooray! We had the most delicious Tortillla Soup and the Grilled Asparagus and Beet salads. Just the right amount and perfectly executed. The service was great, took care... More

The food is solidly good and there is enough variety on the menu. The onion soup is a reliably tasty well presented staple. The room is beautiful, colorful and bright. A large skylight above, plants and a fountain in the middle create a charming indoor courtyard. The service can be uneven, especially toward the end of the lunch shift. La... More

My husband and I have been here for quite a few lunches and a breakfast, and we intend to keep coming. The restaurant is in an enclosed patio inside the hotel..great open space. The wait staff are top notch..probably because this IS The La Fonda, but the food doesn't disappoint either. I can't stop eating the salsa..I could drink it... More
