Outstanding food and service. The lobster ceviche tapas like appetizer was great. The rolled caesar was super tasty with a sweet soy wrap. The elk was amazing and the faux bone was very creative. Check it out in my picture. That’s fake! The prep on all the dishes was very innovative and tasted great. Excellent wine selection. Highly attentive service. Very attractive room with fixtures from a known artist. Would be better if they provided some more kid choices to the menu but kids were made to feel welcome there, nonetheless.

A Santa Fe landmark restaurant not to be missed. Start with a margarita – whether it is the classic with bit of New Mexico chili or a modernized version with a lime foam (wow!) it will put your palate on a voyage of discovery that will be enjoyed and remembered. The amuse bouche we were served was a rich and creamy roasted cauliflower soup. The arugula, pear and walnut salad was dressed perfectly. The signature Elk tenderloin with bacon lets you know that this is a special meal. Tacos al pastor to die for. Exceptional wine list by the glass or bottle. Top notch service from waiters who know the menu, are willing to share a details and make solid recommendations. Make a reservation and enjoy a remarkable meal.

We stopped in for lunch. Because of repairs, only the roof garden was open at that time. That turned into a very pleasant meal. The margarita was devine.
This is an iconic restaurant. Great atmosphere. Great food.

Terrific food and drink and very attentive service. The 28 ounce rib eye split for 2 was incredible and amazing to just see never mind eat. P.S. The stuffed potatoes and cauliflower soup were especially delicious. You will enjoy it.
