    Long a Santa Fe favorite, Geronimos is now a well oiled machine only serving dinner in a bustling ambience with staff tripping over each other to service a crowd in somewhat limited quarters. The tasting menu for vegetarians which we had was excellent. The first course, a pear salad, was an overly generous portion but delicious and artfly presented. The mushroom bisque promoted scraping the dish with a piece of the homemade sourdough bun to prevent wasting a drop. The remaining two courses were complimentary to complete a very satisfying dinner. The wait staff for our table were knowledgeable, solicitous, and nicely attired ( rare in this town). This was a holiday weekend evening at the end of the season. Excellent job considering.

    We had reservations for early evening. The restaurant was empty but we were sat outside. The flies were swarming and we were obviously not having a pleasant experience. We eat outside at other Santa fe restaurants and this has not been the case. There must be something attracting them to that specific area. When we complained the waiter said "We spray every day, but that doesn't help. You should just be thankful to enjoy Santa Fe's beautiful weather." We were not offered to move inside. The food was just OK- not a meal to be remembered on a positive note. We won't be going back.

    We had the pleasure of dining at Geronimo numerous times this July and August. We tried many different dishes - and many of the same more than once. Nothing missed a beat - ever; the food, service and warmth of Chris's staff was always impeccable. Best of all, if you are being selective about what and how much you eat, you can create any type of meal you want to eat - from small plates to big steaks. Go and enjoy.

    Once again, Geronimo comes through. Without a doubt, one of the best, in a City with many great choices. Outstanding and very knowledgeable servers. The lobster appetizer was deliciously outstanding and unique. My wife loved her salmon dish and I thoroughly enjoyed my filet and frites. Dessert was also a treat with the carrot cake served beautifully. We visit Santa Fe for a month and Geronimo is always our special farewell to Santa Fe dinner. Several years and never disappointed.

    A memorable meal, but not perfect. I had the elk- very good. Wife had lamb- these were fatty and not much meat. The appetizer we shared was excellent- gnocchi with local mushrooms. Also, there was a large table close to us that were a little loud.

    We went for celebratory dinner after our wedding. We were met at a corner banquette by our waiter with complimentary glasses of champagne. This is a very beautiful, romantic restaurant. The staff was well-versed with the dining, bar, & wine menus. Our personal server was gracious, just friendly enough without overdoing. We ordered too much food, but it was delicious, well-prepared, & beautifully presented. We couldn't manage dessert, but again, we were served a complimentary & beautifully presented Meyer Lemon crepe filled with vanilla aioli creme custard and Lemoncello with side glasses of a delicious dessert wine. We couldn't have had a more wonderful experience & were treated graciously & well by the entire staff of Geronimo.

    Visited during Indian Market with a sell out crowd. Menu was creative and challenging (but with a few favorites for the less adventurous). Desserts were worth the indulgence. Preparation and presentation were exceptional. Priced accordingly. Food is extraordinary but wine is a disappointment. Wine list is pricey and skimpy--almost nothing that was more than 12 months after release by the winery unless you were willing to pay more than $750 for a bottle. Our choice was substituted without notice. We could not find a pinot under $200 that was more than a year from release.

    The dinning experience at Geronimo's is amazing. The food is delicious and artfully presented. The service is flawless and the decor is elegant but comfortable. My favorites include the tuna tartar with the little pancakes, the miso sea bass and save room for the mandarin orange "creamsicle" cake. This is our first choice for a restaurant when we visit Santa Fe.

    We go to Geronimo's each time we go to Santa Fe. Although that is only 5 times in the last 9 years, we have experienced this restaurant at its best and at its mediocre. We heard one of the owners was back and we are happy that he is and the results showed us that their food and service was back to very good. Thank you for a woinderful "take" on Caesar Salad and for bringing the spicy prawns back. Our server recommended the right wine to go with our meal and overall he was one of the best servers we have had. We will return.

    This was our first visit to Santa Fe. Geronimo Restaurant was highly recommended by several friends. We are very happy that we were able to get a reservation during the busy Indian Market weekend. Geronimo is the very best restaurant we have ever had the pleasure of visiting. The food, presentation, staff and the entire dining experience were flawless. We will definitely go back to Geronimo the next time we visit Santa Fe. This restaurant was the highlight of our visit.

    This restaurant was recommended as the best restaurant in Sants Fe and fell far short of the title. We sat outside and were inundated by flies and had to ask to be moved to an inside table. The service was good and the crab cakes were excellent. The shrimp tasted great but the rice cake was like blob on the plate, thick and like paste. Dessert was good. The lemom crepe was delicious.

    My wife and I are visiting Santa Fe each year durig the Indian Market week. This was the first time we succeeded in booking a table . Our anticipation was high.... which sometimes lead to disappointment! I must say that this was not the case. It was a great evening. We were sitting outdoors in a quiet evening, the menu presented diverse possibilities. The food was excelllent wit great attention to the choice of flavours !, for instance we had lobster tails, the lobster was juicy tender and very flavoury. Service was attentive without being overbearing. So a great evening which we will try and renew next year.

    When we visit Santa Fe this restaurant is at the top of our reservations. We always know before we go that we will be ordering the Elk. But, we talk about other options as we view the menu. Everything is so tempting and the descriptions sound so scrumptious. We were seated in the front room and the atmosphere was great. Our waitress was Sarah and we were thrilled to have her again this visit. She takes such good care of her customers. I was thrilled to know that the Meyer Lemon Crepes were still offered as an option for dessert. The food and evening was as expected which was wonderful. We will return next time we are in town and so should everyone else.

    We were a party of four, dining before the opera. None of us had been to Geronimo before. As my reservation was months old, I was pleased that we were seated at a lovely, private table next to the kiva. Our server was wonderful. The Hudson Valley foie gras was fabulous, as was my sherry/mushroom bisque. The ladies had the filet and said it was excellent. I had the New York strip steak and it was marvelous. My friend had the the grilled prawns and said they were truly superb. As we were running late, we had to skip dessert. Geronimo lived up to and exceeded our expectations.

    Having been to Santa Fe many times, we wanted to try Geronimo's for a special occasion with family. The experience was short on special beginning with a benign hostess greeting and our waiter should retire. C'mon folks, we're dropping big bucks in this renowned restaurant and expect caliber service in return. However the food (good though not memorable), cocktails, ambiance and family fun, saved this experience from disaster. After all the years of desiring a dining opportunity at Geronimo's, we realized Geronimo's was not exhilarating as the name implies and doubt we would return. Geronimo's gets high ratings only for its name.

    Fine dining at it's best! This is outstanding dining experience . Very creative menu, great wine selection and the best service we ever had at a restaurant in the US! We live since 20 years in the US and have been to numerous well known restaurants on the East- and West coast - but this is a real gem in a historic adobe house. This is an extraordinaire place to celebrate dining. When we come back to Santa Fe - we definitely will go again to Geronimo!

    Having dined at 4 & 5 Star restaurants across the country I can safely say that none of them surpass Geronimo. From our greeting by the Hostess to our departure, every element of our dinner was superb. The food was outstanding, the ambience was outstanding, and our waiter, Brook, was, without a doubt, one of the best we have ever experienced. Highly recommend the Elk and Filet. The Caesar with a hint of Wasabi was outstanding. Kudos to the kitchen, the Hostess, and especially to Brook. Geronimo is pricey but worth it. Thanks for a great evening in Santa Fe.

    It was my 16yr old daughter's first time in Santa Fe since a young child and I wanted her to experience outstanding food. Geronimo's didn't disappoint us. We sat on the porch so we could watch Canyon Rd activities and had a fantastic meal. Service was perfectly attentive. Will return as often as we can get to Santa Fe. I must recommend the Wasabi Caesar Salad. Wow is all I can say!!!!! (And the carrot cake was delightfully sinful!!!)

    Mostly as expected for this price range. I was, however, very surprised by my main, the Scottish Salmon - a completely unseasoned piece of fish with some too-al-dente ravioli with a not-very-special filling - in all, an extremely mediocre dish! Here's the thing: Over the course of the evening, I tasted (from around our table) the Lobster Ragout, the Mushroom Bisque, the Truffle Risotto, the Crab Cakes, the Elk Tenderloin, three flavors of ice cream, the German Chocolate Cake and the Caramelized Banana Cream Pie. Everything else was very delicious! I just don't get how a chef who obviously knows tasty food could produce such a poor dish as the salmon, and not notice the difference in quality. Still recommend, but don't get the Salmon!
