Santacafe is considered to be one of the finest restaurants in town. Sadly, I cannot hop on that bandwagon as my dining experiences there have largely been a disappointment. In all fairness, the patio venue during summer months is hard to beat; it's lovely! Free...More

From bread through salad and soup to the main course the food was excellent. Different takes on traditional favorites, and creative unusual dishes. Service was adequate.

Worst service that I have ever encountered anywhere in the world. The lack of service totally spoiled a meal that could have been very good. I will never again bring a guest to this restaurant or recommend this restaurant to others.

Nestle in at the bar to savor a lovely glass of wine and amazing calamari... cannot go wrong! Also the menu remains constant so you can savor repeat favorites off of it.

The Santa Cafe is a hidden gem. The food is always good. It has large variety of different flairs and tastes

We had a very relaxing and flavorful lunch on the patio. Very friendly and attentive wait staff. Every item we ordered was better than the one before. I love their calamari. A must if visiting Santa Fe.

I've waited to write this review - looking for the best word to describe this restaurant. Snooty - "showing disapproval or contempt toward others, especially those considered to belong to a lower social class". My partner and I, along with two friends had lunch at...More
