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.

This restaurant is in the Inn and Spa at Loretto where we were staying. Whilst it is quite expensive the food was very good . I had crab cakes to start which were delicious and my wife had seared tuna that she enjoyed. We both had the chicken main course which again was very tasty. This was accompanied by good,... More

I was treated to dinner at Luminaria by a friend and wow was it amazing. The setting is gorgeous and we were treated like royalty. We had a bottle of champagne and a lovely bottle of wine. I ordered the pork belly. It had a few disappointing bites in that the edges were dry but the majority of the offering... More

This is a nice lunch restaurant. In the nice weather the outside garden is quite lovley. The food varies from mediocre to good. The restaurant is located inside the hotel Inn at the Loretto. The hotel has some wonderful shops that are not to be missed. Lovely clothing so go down both hall ways.

Dined at Luminaria as part of the New Mexico Food Tour and the chef did not disappoint. We dined on the pork belly which was just fabulous. Staff were friendly and attentive - but not invasive. Lovely start to our evening.
