The restaurant has charm, a good menu and the food quality was good BUT our food was barely warm and the service was erratic. Small changes could have bumped this to an easy four star but it was disappointing.

No better place for Brunch on Mother's Day! They have a wonderful menu. We enjoyed crepes and Eggs Hollandaise with pastries! Good coffee and excellent service. Prices were very reasonable.

I found Chez Mamou when I attended the Infinite Possibilities conference at The Drury Hotel and needed a coffee at a break. Ended up eating Desert for dinner and it was completely and deliciously sinful! Came back for dinner and breakfast and it was def with the calories! Great service as well!

Atmosphere perfect ; food delicious ; service impeccable ; menu offered many choices ! We walked in without reservations , were promptly seated & properly served the whole evening ! Appetizers , main courses & dessert were well prepared and well presented ! Wine list was outstanding . Not a child's restaurant but fits all others !

We have eaten at Chez Manou about 5 times on our annual visit to Santa Fe. Every visit was excellent except the last one. The service has gone downhill. It seems to be a group of teenagers, not knowing what is expected of a waiter. In our previous visits the owner would visit all the tables and make sure everything... More

If you are looking for a great breakfast this is your spot. My wife and I split a crepe that was served with cheese and potatoes which was the best crepe I have ever had. The portion size was large and the taste soooo delicious. We also enjoyed a hot freshly baked almond croissant and strong brewed coffee. Think we... More

This restaurant was very close to the hotel I was staying so my daughter and I tried it one evening during our visit. I think the atmosphere is nice, the service was great but I didn't really think the food was over the top great. There are so many great restaurants in Santa Fe, this one is good but I... More

The food service was extremely slow. Excuses were made at 20 and 35 minutes. At one point we were told our order would be out shortly and then later told that there was a problem in the kitchen. The food arrived in 45 minutes but was far below serving temperature. We could not recommend dining here and would not return... More

Who would guess that you'd find a place in Santa Fe with authentic French food at reasonable prices, great service, and even a cellist? I had an extremely tender pork couchon, that was served with scalloped potatoes and delicious sautéed vegetables. My husband had a beautiful duck breast in dark cherry sauce with the same sides. They have a large... More
