Diner Reviews
  • "Exceptional setting in atrium featuring tropical trees and plants. The architectural highlights of this hotel are remarkable."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "The wines by the glass were quite limited--but more impressive than the wines by the bottle. There were only a few "light" reds/pinot noirs. They were all over $150 a bottle. The trout was lousy; it tasted like it was quite old. The chicken was okay. The creamed corn was wonderful. We had the Butcher's Plate at the bar before dinner. It was very tastey. Next time, we will stay in the bar and add a few sides with teh Butcher's Plate. While we will not have dinner at De La Tierra again, the breakfast was quite good."

  • "I made reservations for their special Valentines's Dinner and I was not disappointed. I menu was great and I don't believe the food could have been cooked any better. Our server was exceptional making the night very memorable. I would not hesitate to make reservations for any occasion. It was a wonderful experience."

  • "We love the atmjosphere at El Monte but the food was just not worth the price. Nothing outstanding . Steaks and Bison were tough and stringy. The bartender was just rude. After dinner we joined friends at the bar and the bartender turned his nose up and made rude remarks about every drink order. He treated everyone that way, not just us.."

  • "For the past few years, I have consistently chosen El Monte Sagrado as the place to hold my business meetings, usually over lunch or coffee. This venue meets all my needs for wheelchair accessibility. I typically host businesspeople and politicians and their staffs who are consistently impressed that such a fine meeting place exists in Taos. The overall ambience is outstanding for my purposes of making my guests relaxed and open to important discussions of major issues affecting our community. The El Monte Sagrado staff are always top-tier whether attending to our general needs or any specific requests. Overall, this is as perfect a place as I can find in Taos for conducting casual yet highly productive professional meetings."

  • "The food was spectacular They served a special three course dinner for New Year's Eve. The oysters were absolutely the best I've ever tasted. Lightly dusted and fried just until creamy. Would have loved to have made a meal out of them. The filet was cooked perfectly and the reduction sauce and garlic mashed potatoes were to die for. Service was very attentive. Carlos was knowledgeable and pleasant. Would love to go back"

  • "This was a romantic Christmas night dinner at De La Tierra. I made reservations (as recommended) well in advance. The menu was a prix fixe of $45/person with a limited menu. All started out well enough. The waiter took our drink orders and came back with them to take our meal orders. Then we never saw the waiter again until I had to ask for the check. When our meals were brought out it seemed as if everybody disappeared. I had to ask for our waiter for the dessert ordering. He never came so we asked another waiter. I then asked for our waiter for the check, then of course, he showed up. Never once acknowledging something was wrong Forgettable meal and non-existent service. With so many choices in Taos I would never go back here."

  • "Overall , hotel and dining area are very unusual architecturally interesting settings. However, the 5 minute wait just for the hostess to arrive to seat several small groups was totally unacceptable for a 3/4 star hotel. The dining service area needs new management as we ran into the same problem in the bar area , which is a gorgeous setting. The menu and food selection was good and an interesting and healthy mix, spoiled only again by the table service, which was also horribly slow. Too bad, with a top notch dining room management , this restaurant could become a destination for travelers, and locales instead of the few people stuck at the hotel at night. There is potential for a really wonderful , memorable offering. Much work is needed."

  • "Taos southwest cuisine can get pretty redundant after a few days, and fine dining is hit-or-miss and usually overpriced and hurried. So we were hesitant about El Monte Sagrado for Christmas Eve dinner. However, we had a great dining experience. Great food, ambiance, wine list. Unhurried, as one would expect from a top-tier restaurant, but very attentive service. Probably not a great choice for people with small kids, in a hurry, or looking for value prices, but if you are looking for an intimate dining experience I highly recommend El Monte Sagrado. We will definitely come back again... and again."

  • "The Seared Halibut was not edible . So tough it must have been frozen and then thawed in a microwave. The people were very accommodating but quality management from the kitchen was absent."

  • "Food was good, nothing spectacular. Wait staff and hostess made the visit enjoyable. The hostess went out of her way to accomodate us by switching our table away from the kitchen/serving area. They were out of the wines my husband wanted, but our waitress tried very hard to make up for that. It was refreshing to see that there are people who still know how to help you have a good experience!"
