    We had a 7pm reservation and arrived at 6:45, expecting to wait in the bar. We were seated right away. The service was professional & attentive. We started off with wonderful corn sticks with honey butter and delicious, creamy butternut squash soup. Every choice on the menu sounds wonderful, but our group decided on the elk tenderloin and pork chop entrees. Both were expertly cooked and beautifully presented. Our only regrets were not saving room for dessert and not having enough time in Santa Fe to return for another meal at Coyote Cafe.

    Too noisy. Coyote used to have a quiet ambience where I could converse with my dinner partner. Not this time. Service was amazing. Made anniversary special. Food very good. Thank you

    We mentioned that the pork chop was a bit tough. At a price of $44 it should be perfection. The service was great. Ambiance OK? The elk was good but gravy was a bit heavy. The mussels posole was perfection. Our favorite.
