Appetizers were fantastic, entree was so so at best. Had duck and it was rubbery. Wine was good, mixed drink good. Desert was advertised as raspberries but ended up strawberries. Just an ok place despite it being recommended.More

Restaurant is part of hotel but far cry from typical hotel food. Tableside guac excellent. All food was very nice. I liked that you had option of traditional southwest cuisine or more upscale options. Not cheap but worth the price. Service excellent as well

Lovely ambiance & decor. Pork tacos & grilled pear salad were excellent, as was margarita. Excellent service. The only problem was substandard flavorless guacamole, made table side with old onions & jalapeño peppers. That’s what prevented this place from getting 5 stars.More

This is an excellent restaurant within La Fonda on the Plaza. It features a number of regional dishes, all of the ones we tasted were quite good. Service was good but could be a bit slow. Beware of one thing though; we had a marguerita...More
