    Outstanding! 6 out of 5 star review. Exceptional food and service, white tablecloth, fine patio dining. My favorite new restaurant in Santa Fe. Beautiful for a date or special occasion. Top notch!

    Enjoyable evening outdoors in lovely weather. Reason for less than perfect was a didn’t care salmon dish I ordered. It had a heavy tomatoes paste like sauce which I didn’t care for. Not as light as I expected. Service was a little slow at first but over meals were good. Love private parking. Wine pairing was great.

    Consistently great experience at Santacafe! One of my top three favorites in my hometown. Service is professional and friendly, but never rushed. Its attentive but not overly so. Timing is always on point and good and beverages are fantastic. Classy place. I especially love the calamari, the lobster salad, and at lunch, the burger and fries. Beautiful patio if you like dining al fresco!

    Wow! What a fabulous experience! Our server was so talented, friendly and attentive. The food was amazing! Water was refilled frequently and plates cleared promptly. We ate outside on the patio and it was awesome. We will definitely be back!

    Our server was excellent and the whole staff was very nice. I loved our seat and the setting. I do wish the food had been better. I grew up in New England where the lobster rolls are excellent and these were okay. They used a spice (cumin? Coriander?) and whatever it was does not make the roll taste better. I can see they were trying to give it something extra, but it doesn’t work. The raviolis were okay, I suppose. The branzino was okay.

    What a wonderful experience! We celebrated my wife’s birthday in the lovely courtyard. Our evening was perfect from the welcoming Gruet through dessert. Jeremy was an attentive and helpful server. The dinner menu has many appealing options and the wine list is extensive. Everything was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. We dined at quite a few restaurants during our nearly two week stay in Santa Fe, and this was our favorite.
