“Best eating experience in Santa Fe!”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

My wife and I were giving a glowing recommendation from Walter & Cari Cohen whom we rented their condo. We were very impressed with the service,food and overall dining experience. We shared the veal meatballs and crabcakes, both were presented well and tasted even better!!!!!!!!! We finished the dinner with bread pudding which was wonderful! Both owners,husband & wife, made sure to check all the plates were in order before being served. Thank you for a great upscale dining experience in Santa Fe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Nothing to write home about.”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

We stuck to the tapas menu, and were disappointed. The pate was good, but not special. The grilled eggplant lacked flavor, as did the seared tuna. The risotto patty was tasty, as was the chipotle shrimp. The service and atmosphere, however, were excellent, and thus the 3 stars overall. I would give the food 2 stars.

“Simply AMAZING”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

My husband and I went to Santa Fe for the first time for our Valentine's weekend. This was an absolutely amazing experience. Sitting in front of the cooks getting to see all the action. Josh (one of the chefs) was so friendly. The food is definitely fit for foodies.
This is one of the best restaurants in Santa Fe. We HIGHLY recommend.

“A very nice surprise”
Reviewed 22 January 2012

We are new locals here in Santa Fe. We went to this restaurant on my husband's birthday. It was fantastic. The food is delicious. Atmosphere warm and inviting. Service outstanding. The head chef will check in to see if all is well and he is very unpretentious.

We'll be back!!!
