I visit Santa Fe about 4 weeks a year and try to get to Santacafe at least twice. While the service can be spotty, the food never disappoints. Fettuccine with wasabi and mussels incredible. Coffee bean ice cream with pinion crisp to die for.

Very few aspects of our experience met our expectations. We'd made a reservation for six, requesting an indoor table. Ended up outside on the patio. Our server was indifferent at best. Three of the six of us had errors with our entree orders but given...More

Quaint and sophisticated in a very cool setting. The service was good and the food was excellent. Highly recommend the lobster pot pie!

The food was good, and somewhere toward the higher-end on price, so really the food was as good as it should have been. The odd thing was that at 35 years old we were easily 20 years below the average age. That wasn't completely uncommon...More

After a hot day no where better to dine outside. Lots of food to chose from including local New Mex dishes like enchiladas. All the portions were large. We were hosted by Lee who gave good advise and helped everyone make a good choice with...More

As seems to be the case with many restaurants these days, the food at Santacafe was great but the service wasn't. Lamb chops and filet mignon were excellent as was the asparagus soup special. Desserts were delicious but huge and easily shareable. The restaurant makes...More
