Reviewed yesterday NEW

I was here as part of a tour group and we were offered the buffet. Most of the options, even the spanish rice, had meat or poultry ingredients. I ended up having a tortilla with lettuce and tomato and a bit of salsa. I would suggest you view the buffet and ask any dietary questions before committing to ensure it's... More

We enjoyed our meal at La Fonda. The food was sort of upscale tex-mex and Northern New Mexican. The kids food could use some help - our daughter ordered mac and cheese and I'm 99% sure they served her Kraft mac and cheese. We went back the next night for a take-out order of sopaipillas, and the host forgot our... More

Dinner: Guacamole at table, terrific. Spinach salad, outstanding. Enchiladas with eggs, delectable; came with sopapillas with honey, a built-in dessert. Fish and beef tacos, great. Great atmosphere, friendly service. Make a reservation!

Located in the old La Fonda Hotel on the PLAZA and lovely to dine in. Good local cuisine and full at lunch. I love the chili rellanos but haven't had a bad meal here. Always a nice, relaxing and lovely place for dining in Santa Fe.

We were impressed by the historic charm and feel of the hotel where this restaurant is located. The food was good, but not exceptional. Go there for the atmosphere, but don't expect too much with the meal

Lovely space and atmosphere, service was friendly and they were great with accommodating a vegan option - which was a fabulous roasted cashew cake with beautifully presented veggie sides. We also enjoyed exploring the historic hotel and shops. A must do when in Santa Fe!

First of all this restaurant is situated in the La Fonda hotel, which's lobby is the crossroads of New Mexico in my opinion. The food is excellent, from New Mexican Specialties to contemporary hits. Try anything...I love their fish.

We were told that even though there were many empty tables at the dinner hour, they were unable to seat us because we did not have a reservation. We were guests of the La Fonda Hotel, and had decided to have dinner in the hotel instead of wandering around that evening. We were disappointed because we had read some lovely... More
