Amazing food. I would go back just for the rice and beans and the side salad. It's that good. My only slight complaint is that it was too loud to talk easily and the sun was in my husbands eyes most of dinner and there wasn't a blind to put down. Overall great restaurant, good service, great food. Definitely will... More

Another great time at Santa Fe! Some friends were passing through in the late afternoon and we decided to meet at this great restaurant for an early dinner. Four of us arrived at 5 and had great food and were out the door by 6:15 when folks needed to continue their drive up to Albany. Cheerful staff, excellent food. Have... More

I wouldn't have thought to stop here if it hadn't been recommended. It's off the beaten path and looks closed most of the time. we had a delicious meal on a Friday night. The place was busy but not too crowded. Inside was a little noisy with the music so we opted for outside which was pleasant except for the... More

Tried Santa Fe for the first time tonight and were pretty wowed. The half pitcher of frozen Margarita was perfect for two (about 2 full glasses each). We shared the Oaxacan chicken tacos and the steak tacos (you get two of each) and both were grilled to perfection. Service: wonderful, friendly, efficient. Could not ask for more from a neighborhood... More

Quiet, cozy little location. Good ambiance. Food is very good, and considerably less expensive than the Armadillo, but service is just as slow as the Armadillo if not slower. Now it was a little busy as it was a Taco Tuesday, so I figured that was the norm. We waited 25 minutes before someone came to show us a table... More

Hi Battle_Mage, I'd like to start by thanking you for commending our food, ambiance and price point - I appreciate it. I'd also like to apologize for the awful experience you had this past Taco Tuesday. We strongly recommend making a reservation for Tuesdays because it is not uncommon for there to be a wait for a table without one.... More

Santa Fe Uptown is an off-shoot of longtime Tivoli, NY favorite, Santa Fe. A warm, inviting and festive atmosphere sets the scene for a fun meal of the freshest ingredients along with the best tequila selection in Ulster County. Committed to serving all natural, always fresh, made-from-scratch menu items, Santa Fe Uptown has quickly gained the reputation of being one of Kingston's most popular restaurants.Santa Fe Uptown features a large yet cozy U-shaped bar that has been a local gathering place for over 50 years (when it was known as 11 Main). There are two intimate dining rooms with boldly colored walls and filled with the twinkle of the 100+ candles that are lit nightly.
