Pretty expensive. But the Lamb chops and the salad which preceded the entree were both fabulous. This was our best meal in Santa Fe. Yes, you pay for it. But, it was great and the staff was excellent also.

Excellent restaurant. Before dinner we enjoyed martinis and wine. This restaurant has a solid wine list and the bartender makes a great martini. We ordered the salmon and a lamb special. Both dinners were well prepared and well presented. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

We stayed at the Eldorado Hotel so we had breakfast there every morning. The food was good, the service was very slow. I couldn't understand why when there were so few people in the restaurant.

The food is beautifully prepared and delicious, and Jody was a fast and attentive waiter. She balances out the glacial speed of the other waitstaff. Both the bar and the restaurant had very slow service, and I would have rated this place much lower but...More
