To begin, they accommodated a late change in the number of our party, and we showed up a little early, and they seated us immediately. Our server, Julia, appeared almost immediately and we were served one of the best Margarita's in New York City. The fresh and delicious guacamole, chips and nachitos were ample for three of us, and our entrees were also delicious. The food at Santa Fe is well-seasoned. Nothing is too spicy or bland. It's just right! I would highly recommend it, and well be back there again soon.

The quality of the food seems to have gone done. Shrimp in enchiladas were over cooked and tough. Guacamole was great. The space is light and airy. Partitions between tables were welcome and cut down on noise.

Excellent value as the food is moderately priced. Come early for quiet, as the noise level rises as the evening progresses.

The margaritas are phenomenal. The mango margarita is full of mango flavor unlike other mango margaritas I have had where the only hint of mango is the color. The menu offers an extensive selection. The guacamole is full of avocado and is a must-have. We had burritos and they were packed full and huge. I could only eat half of mine and took the other half home. Great experience and looking forward to our next meal at Santa Fe.

The food is excellent and the ambience is beautiful. The menu has been simplified but I assume that is because of covid. This is definitely a neighborhood favorite favorite. Try the 71 Margarita.

But time and the pandemic haven't been kind to Santa Fe. At this point, the menu feels tired to me, some of the more interesting options have disappeared, and although I love the comfy vibe of the place, some of its fun and luster is harder to find. Still, old habits die hard, and it's not nice to abandon an old friend. So I'll probably keep coming, but encourage Santa Fe to switch up the menu with some specials now and again (as in the Before Times).
