This restaurant is in the Eldorado Hotel, very close to the Santa Fe Hilton. I had the lamb and my spouse had the chicken. Both meals were very good. Since it was still a bit early after we had finished eating, we sat in the bar for a glass of wine before returning to the hotel. The bartender there was... More

Do not pass on an omelette from Carlos, the omelette specialist! He is very friendly and makes the best omelettes!

I was invited to attend my husband's work holiday dinner at the Old House and I was very impressed. The atmosphere was cozy and the service was awesome not to mention how delicious all the food tasted. The staff including the restaurant manager were great and ensured we had everything we needed. They had a great wine selection and if... More

My husband and I ate here for Restaurant Week earlier in the year where I loved the aged ribeye, and we have finally got to come back, but beware..the ribeye is no longer the price on menu it's $54.00. They definitely need to come in and change their online menu along with prices. It's not serve with mac and cheese... More

Enjoyed the new dinner menu. The new chef had done a great job...keep it up! Really like the mention of organic source on sustainable seafood, actual ranch where the beef came from & the special 28 day aged ribeye "prime grade" steak.

We were staying at the Hotel so we decided to eat dinner there. Not a huge menu but their food was well presented and good. Very nice relaxing atmosphere. Good drinks.

Visited Old House and had decent service but I did miss the top notch service from Joseph Chavez. My bartender made an effort to make my drink but no comparison to the cosmo I expected from my previous visits with Joseph. Happy Holidays!

Dinner is most enjoyable at the Old House Restaurant. I started with the crab cake , which was delicious. My husband had steak and I had the chicken for our entree. Both were tasty, tender and well presented. The vegetables accompanying each dish was different. The wine selection could be better. The dessert was great. Overall , it was a... More

My wife and I recently had dinner at The Old House Restaurant when visiting Santa Fe for a conference. Our server was very attentive, helpful and friendly. The grilled salmon entree I ordered was delicious and was very well complemented by the risotto and asparagus. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the scallop entree which, like the dessert she ordered, was artfully... More
