    We could not have had a nicer evening at Geronimo. The service was excellent, both friendly and professional. The atmosphere was romantic and warm. The food was exceptional from the cauliflower bisque to the lobster tails and fiery and sweet prawns. The Meyer lemon crepe and the banana cream pie were delicious. All in all, a great dining experience in one of Santa Fe's premier restaurants.

    Outstanding dining experience! Great for any special occasion. The service was exceptional from the Valet to the servers. Next time in Santa Fe we will def. return. My only hint would be that I made my res thru OpenT and could only get in at 6pm… there were some open tables in the restaurant through out our meal that could have accommodated us…if you want a diff time try calling the rest day of to see if you can eat at a diff time you might prefer.

    Make a quick day trip from Albuquerque to Santa Fe to try out a new car. Stayed at a B&B, and walked to Geronimo -- just about a mile. Extremely courteous staff at all levels. Never hurried, but were extremely prompt. Therefore, very relaxing. Food was just great -- all courses. Try the Dreamsicle cake. Great combination of flavors and tastes no matter the course. Only point is the cost. Seems high when viewed just by itself; however, if you compare it with other top-line Santa Fe fine dining restaurants they're pretty equal. Would certainly return.

    The location quality, setting, service etc could not be better. Dinner for two with wine came to $180. The name "Geranimo" creates a rustic theme... which is totally incorrect. The is an elegant place.

    Loved this place and would definitely go back again. My only issue is that we asked the waiter about the vegetarian options and he told us about the vegetarian tasting menu. But then soon after he proceeded to tell us about the non vegetarian specials and didn't stop us from ordering a salad that had bacon in the fine print that we didn't catch (I should have caught it but...) Other than that it was awesome

    Quite possibly one of the best meals I have ever had from start to finish. The location, food quality, wine list, service and ambiance are outstanding and make for a wonderful dining experience. Is it expensive? Yes, but not over priced for the quality of the food, service, and overall experience. We enjoyed green chili margaritas - an unusual cocktail that was spicy and incredibly flavorful. The organic cauliflower bisque and crab cake appetizers were exceptional, the elk is probably the best entree on the menu (the tornedos of center cut filet are not far behind), and the fresh meyer lemon crepe is not to be missed. Geronimo's is a must for your next trip to Santa Fe. It will be a dinner you will always remember.

    I made reservations at Geronimo for my husband's birthday. We had been told that the elk tenderloin was a specialty. We both ordered that dish and we are so glad that we did. The elk could almost be cut with a fork. It was very tender and wonderfully flavored. The accompanying potatoes and sauce were just right. The service was excellent and unobtrusive. We thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience and would definitely go again and recommend it to our friends.

    Over the years we wrote or co-authored four restaurant guides involving the Front Range from Cheyenne to Santa Fe. This was as fine an experience as we had anywhere researching restaurants for those books. The courses were attractively presented and well prepared. Service was outstanding both in promptness and politeness. The wine list is very well done, ranging from the high end with some of the most renowned properties in France down to wines by the glass that are affordable and well chosen. We always enjoy going to Santa Fe and will look forward to returning here the next time.

    A couple of times we almost cancelled our dinner reservation because we were tired and not sure we wanted to hassle with a nice dinner out. Wow - both our driver and a friend encouraged us to keep the reservation because the food was outstanding! Oh My Gosh - were they ever right! Our food was absolutely delicious - the crouton in the caesar salad was the best thing I have ever had in my life! We loved our prawns and the elk tenderloin! Yum! Macaroon and sweets were an absolutely perfect way to end the wonderful meal! We will be back! Service was impeccable without being stuffy.

    We were most impressed in the location, the service and the quality and range of the menu/wine selections. Located in the Canyon Road precincts of the older settlement of Santa Fe, which makes it truly surrounded by both a varied and elegant clutch / spate of interesting and special art and boutique shops and galleries. Thus the place and pace of the dining experience from the "get-go"was exceptional...but the restaurant was, in its own right, special and memorable for a quiet celebration or to learn to love the Santa Fe trail (and dining experience) from a relaxing, quaint but sophisticated wayside leather booth.

    I was very disappointed with Geronimo's in Santa Fe For a rated 4.5 star restaurant it needs to be reviewed the food was good but not top shelf but the service was the worst I have seen in a long time. Since when in a 4.5 rated restaurant you get forgotten about ? forgotten wine , that was requested no apology when we complained about service We get" well we are very busy tonight I'll get back to you "There are much better places to eat in this town There was nothing that was outstanding to note about this place!!

    Walked through the tented doorway we were greeted with an awful smell of bad fish.The male door hosted was extremely rude and quite pushy. He practically walked over a lady in our group. We had to wait at least 20 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. After we were seated we waited another 20 minutes for someone to take a drink order and bring water. We had to ask for bread. The rolls were cold and hard as if they were left over from another table. Our waitress was extremely rude and unhelpful. When spending $500 plus for dinner I would expect good service and respect. Geronimo will be low on our list for our next visit.

    We come out to Santa Fe each year, and have been going to Geronimo since its' opening. Never a disappointment. The starters and main courses are varied and great. We had the crab cakes and a lobster pasta dish to start which were exquisite. Main courses were lamb shanks and filet with sauces. Great! The wines are expensive but worth it. Service never lets you down.
