Celebrating my husband's 70th birthday. Pacific cod and chicken for dinner. The Bosc Pear Salad was delicious! Glass of Wente Riesling was $9.00; the Baileyana Rose was $11.00. A very lovely evening.

Talk about an excellent meal! They were able to accommodate us for last minute reservations. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. The margaritas and appetizers were very good and I had some of the best prime rib ever. And you can't beat their dessert choices!

Had a nice visit with the kids but I wouldnt order the cashew cakes again, just too many flavors on one plate, I felt like I needed an instruction manual. loved the baked brie and the ambiance. Will come again.

Excellent chickpea and goji berry salad that was delicious and creative. Table side guacamole is fun and tasty though $15 but worth it. Husbands enchilada was top in Santa Fe

I always eat breakfast and dinner there at least once every trip to Santa Fe. Their NM atmosphere is great. For breakfast, the eggs Benedict is my favorite. And for dinner I'm lucky that their good fajitas are one of the most reasonably priced entrees....More
