My husband and I chose this restaurant on a recommendation from our trolley driver who shared with us that growing up in Santa Fe, this was his family's restaurant for any kind of celebration. Thank you Peter!!! We had such a wonderful experience tonight at Santacafe. We started with a shared appetizer of Shrimp and Spinach dumplings with a fresh... More

This fine dining restaurant near The Plaza is an outstanding place for couples to enjoy a special evening, perhaps in front of a warm fire.

I just had an outstanding lunch of lobster pot pie. My brother had the Rueben. Simply amazing. I consider myself a NY foodie, and this restaurant did not disappoint. It's a little off the beaten path, but it's worth it.

Stopped by here after reading many wonderful reviews of the place. I was not disappointed. I tried the blue corn chicken enchiladas and they were delicious! The portions and price are a good value. Will definitely return next time I'm in town

Stuffed into a cold, drafty corner (the windows were not sealed and it was February), we had to keep our coats on. Our waitstaff was slow, inefficient and unhelpful. Only three gluten-free options, but if one cannot eat red meat either make that just two options, neither appealing. My choice of the lobster salad was disappointing, tasteless-and $25! The table...

We had such a delightful Valentine's Day dinner at Santacafe that we treated another couple to dinner here about two weeks ago as a "thank you." I've lived in Santa Fe since 1999 and have never had a bad meal or poor service at this restaurant, which I've frequented often. On our last visit, two of us ordered steaks, one... More

We had a late lunch there on a Friday. The weather was reasonably warm and a few tables had been set up on the patio. Considering that we were the only people in patio and could easily have been overlooked, the service was beyond what I would have expected. Food was great as always. It was our first stop when...

Had brunch here which was delicious. All the menu offerings were appealing and it was hard to choose just one. The Mexican meat quesadilla were delicious as was the Mexican style eggs Benedict. I happened to meet the chef who was a delight. At the time this was built 300 years ago the friars dug their own well for water... More

We had dinner at Santacafe with friends. We had lamb chops which were good, risotto with lemon a little heavy with the lemon. Steaks were good. Limited choices of beer but wine was good. Waiter was excellent - very attentive. Nice night and dinner.

Had lunch today and it was enjoyable as have my previous visits with a slight quibble. The French fried onion rings and Judy's catsup were excellent. The service was very good. My issue was with the meal I ordered. The quality was very good, the quantity was light. I had the "wild gulf shrimp tempura". It came with a large... More
