Thank you for an excellent dinner for my husband and myself. The rib eye was aged perfectly. My husband was so happy with the tortilla soup. Victor was helpful picking the perfect table by the fireplace. Juan gave exceptional service answering questions. Juan knew the menu and articulated details with patience and enthusiasm. The staff are happy to be working... More

We loved the atmosphere. It is in the Inn at Loretto which is a fabulous hotel. When we called for reservations for 9 people they said they were full until 9:00pm, which was too late for some of our party so we did not accept. They called back later and said they could give us a private room at 7:30pm... More

This is an amazing experience! Chef Anthony Smith is a master. Food is beautiful and delicious with so many elements that when combined is artwork. Foodies delight, go now! Aged ribeye for main dish, market salad and shrimp small plate were phenomenal. Thank you Chef Smith!

Chef Smith outdid himself with our delicious meal! We were a party of 8 and not only was the food fabulous, the presentation was gorgeous! A special thank you to our waiter, Carlos, who was wonderful as well!

Delicious lunch prepared by chef Anthony Smith who is relatively new to the restaurant. Not sure if the previous bad reviews were for a former chef, but eight of us were all very happy with our meals.

Poorly run & worst dining experience EVER! Not crowded at 8pm on a Sunday night, but the staff were totally disorganized and untrained... The server, Victor, could not recommend or suggest anything on the menu, and lamely said he'd only ever tried the enchiladas. OMG!?! Did they just promote a busboy with no serving experience? I guess so because he... More

The Inn and Spa at Loretto is a high quality hotel and it stands to reason that Luminaria meet the same standards. We are locals who dine out often. We find the food and service at Luminaria to be consistently high. The staff has changed little in five years which is highly unusual in Santa Fe where musical chairs are... More

One of our group had heard how wonderful Luminaria was so we made reservations. When we walked into this gorgeous restaurant we thought we'd struck gold. They seated us on the lovely outdoor patio. We placed our cocktail and dinner orders. Cocktails were good. Dinner was NOT. All of us were disappointed by our meal and we had different things.... More

This pretty little restaurant is in the Loretto Inn. The evening we were there it was very quiet, only a few tables occupied. We had very attentive, friendly service. Drinks were well portioned. Spouse got scallops, which was a dish on the small side, but he enjoyed thoroughly. My steak was also very good (he helped me finish that). Very... More

This restaurant is attached to the Inn and Spa at Loretto hotel and as a hotel dining room it exceeded the standard often found in hotel dining rooms. The menu is varied, the food was better than good, not excellent, expensive, and served competently.
