My wife had lunch at La Plazuela on a weekday in February. We used to live in New Mexico but now live in upstate New York. There are plenty of Mexican restaurants where we live now but we stopped going because they are SO not what a place like La Plazuela has to offer. While the names of dishes are... More

The waitstaff was great and helped us through our gluten-free needs easily. Delicious tacos for my 11 year old and mother in law. Great atmosphere felt light and pleasant.

This restaurant has a fantastic selection for breakfast. I had Eggs Benedict, Huevos Rancheros, Chuletas de Puerco (pork chops), and the Trucha Con Huevos (rainbow trout) for my breakfast meals (not at all one time). The food was excellent, the presentation was very good, and the waitstaff is beyond good (make sure to tip them well, they deserve it).

For breakfast, lunch or dinner, this is always a good choice. The room is rustic, but bright. I have eaten here many times. There is obviously good management as the service is always prompt and friendly, and food is consistently very good. It is also a great location adjacent to the Plaza in the center of town. They also have... More

La Plazuela is our absolute favorite dinner spot in Santa Fe! We have been coming back for over 6 years (my husband even proposed to me here)! Great Southwest dishes & flavors--something for everyone. The table-side guacamole is great as you can choose any ingredients you wish to exclude or add extra of into your appetizer. Dishes range from fajitas,... More

Attended a Dinner Fundraiser the atmosphere at the La Fonda is very eclectic and yet urban and old world at the same time service was very good and the entire experience definitely did not disappoint I had a wonderful time.

Although I wouldn't rate it a five, this restaurant is a strong four. Great southwest flavors. I wish they offered salsa and chips.
