Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "We found our dining experience still at the same high level as we have in the past. The service is great, the food inspired, and overall certainly worth the $."

  • "We were given this recommendation for dinner from a friend. What a great recommendation. The food was awesome and the service was impeccable. We ate outside which was fine. It is a bit noisy outside since the restaurant is right off the road. Great evening."

  • "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!"

  • "Our table was not good, very tight which made servicing the table difficult and cramped. They had a very nice server in a Geronimo T shirt delivering food which did not fit."

    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "The staff wished us a happy anniversary and we had one of the best seats in the restaurant. The service and the food were outstanding. We will definitely return next year for our 46th anniversary celebration meal!"
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "We decided to try the Chef's Tasting Menu which was a a vegetarian offering. Pairings and flavors were wonderful. Ambiance was very elegant and we will definitely go back next time in San Jose."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "We have dined at Geronimo's 3 times, with always the same experience: very good food, but service that makes us hope that next time it might improve. It doesn't. Problem is with the haughty, disgruntled attitudes of service staff (waiters, host). Because they are in an art gallery neighborhood (yet cliche'd art at that), they feel they must put on airs. Because they are in a tourist town, they resent having to wait on out-of-towners. (They'd never make it in NYC.) This is management's fault. There are a number of remarkable restaurants in Santa Fe, with food as good or better, and with warm and courteous (not pretentious) staff. Thus, there is no reason to ever go back to Geronimo's."

  • "Our first visit to Geronimo will not be our last. This restaurant partners at the highest level of high quality dining experiences in all regards: A menu has been developed to cover diverse palates and preferences with interesting ingredients and preparation styles; Service that is comprehensive yet does not hover; a wine list that offers something for everyone. All in an environment that honors its history yet presents itself in a contemporary way! And even a football jersey one would be proud to wear! Look out Geronimo - we will be back!"

  • "We've been going to Geronimo's for years and have never been disappointed. My husband and I go for special occasions, as well as when out of town guests visit. Our guests come from all over the country and always remark how the restaurant blends the uniqueness of Santa Fe with world class cuisine."

  • "We had not dined at Geronimo in a while...but that said I will be back soon. I rank this as one of the best in Santa Fe It reminded me that Chef De Stenfano is extraordinary, therefore I will visit Coyote Cafe in the near term."

  • "We are foodies and this was an incredible meal. All 3 courses were top notch. Our server for dinner, Jessica, was fantastic. Only note: we arrived a little early and went to the bar for a cocktail first. I was worried because the bartender had a bit of an attitude (and I used to work in NYC so am not overly sensitive)."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Geronimo is now one of my favorite restaurants in the world. a top 10. so why the 4 star notes? my lamb was visibly quite fatty, and i ate it because i am not afraid of fat and i assumed that was how they intended it to be. Our waitress was nice but not a professional, and i think world class food deserves top waiters. But the recipes were great. Best crab cake i have ever had. they opened a 40th anniversary Caymus, that was fabulous, and the desserts were great. So i loved it"

  • "We've returned here for decades whenever in town, savoring the beautiful rooms, the professional service, and the impeccable food. The rooms are still beautiful. But with a change in management, the food is now less consistent and unoriginal. The signature dishes are still OK, but there are no longer surprises in store. The waitstaff, formerly well-trained and impeccably groomed, has become sloppy, like kids hired off the street. We were early, when the restaurant was mostly empty, so the waitress interrupted us perhaps a dozen times to ask "how was the __?" After the place filled up, however, no one watched our table and it took forever to get someone to take desert orders, refill coffee, or bring a check. There are better choices today."

  • "As previous experience excellent service,great food,pricy but expected. Excellent bartender, remembered martini specifics when ordering from table waiter."

  • "For the 3rd year in a row, our anniversary was wonderful thanks to Geronimo! The food was killer and the patio was perfect! Staying at The Inn at Five Graces and dining at Geronimo is as good as it gets!! GREAT JOB!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "After several trips to Santa Fe, we finally decided it was time to splurge and dine at Geronimo. It was fantastic! Every dish from appetizer to salad to main course was perfect. My husband is a fabulous chef so it's not uncommon for him to be disappointed when we dine out, but this was not the case at Geronimo. We both had the elk tenderloin and our friends had the chargrilled lobster...outstanding! My husband said that tenderloin was one of the top 5 he's ever had. Agree! Our friend was celebrating a birthday and our waiter brought over 4 glasses of champagne to toast her birthday as soon as we sat down...nice touch! It was an amazing dinner."

    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Although the food was wonderful, as we expected, service can make or break your experience at a restaurant. Certainly we expected more at Geronimo! We made reservations for our anniversary (#39) two weeks before so we'd be sure to get in. Last time (January, 2014), our waiter was amazing and so friendly and helpful, and we had a wonderful table! Saturday night couldn't have been farther from this! We didn't so much as get a "hello" and were squashed in between lots of other people. Our waiter was clearly having a bad day as she was abrupt, sarcastic, and just rude. We noticed this was a habit across her section. When you pay a lot of money for a wonderful dinner, I think a little more professionalism can be expected. Just disappointed."

  • "The outdoor setting is much more enjoyable than being inside. Watching the people and the sunset on Canyon Road is priceless as you enjoy this exquisite dining experience. The service was impeccable and extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The filet with pommels frites and asparagus was out of this world, and the German chocolate dessert was incredible."

  • "Over the past eight years of visiting Santa Fe for the opera, Geronimo has been our first go to restaurant. In 2013 it was less than stellar and this year it was disappointing. Something has slipped in the quality of the food and it wasn't the competence of the cooking but rather the quality of the product being purchased. That was especially true in the rack of lamb I had - the chops were about one quarter fat and, though cooked to medium rare as requested, they were tasteless. My wife's Rock Hen, usually excellent, moist and tender, was none of these. The wine list appears to have been given less close attention than it had in the past as well. We will be returning to Santa Fe next year, but, alas, probably not to Geronimo."

  • "We found this place by accident. My fiancee lost his credit card in the parking lot the night before and a valet attendant found it and turned it in. When he asked the valet attendant how he could repay him, he simply asked him to come and eat at the restaurant. This just goes to show that the staff loves where they work and how invested they are in the business. It had a very attentive, polite staff, but stayed behind the scenes (great). The food was exquisite. It was the perfect, romantic night."

  • "This was the second time my husband and I have dined at Geronimo and the food was fabulous once again. We are from out of town or we would be regulars. My husband got the elk tenderloin which came with mashed potatoes, vegetables and a nicely done sauce underneath. I got the lamb chops with delicious potato cakes and vegetables. The service was impeccable. This is one of the best restaurants in Santa Fe so make reservations ahead of time if you are going to be in the area, located on Canyon Road near many fine art galleries."

  • "The restaurant is in the nicest area of the city. They are offering fine dining, but most of the portions are so big for fine dining, it is more like American fine dining. I don't say the food is not good, but it is not fine dining for my standard. And we sat outside, cars were stoping just in front of us, it was ridiculous because there was no traffic around."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "We started our annual trip to Santa Fe with dinner at Geronimo. Not much has changed in the last year. It’s still one of the most expensive restaurants in town; the décor, updated a few years ago, is still elegant. Unfortunately, the food wasn’t that interesting this time: The caesar salad has lost its tang; the rock hen was a plate full of mismatched vegetables. The experience was just not as pleasant as it has been in the past; given the expense, it may not be worth it."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "This has always been a Santa Fe favorite through the years and I am pleased to find that it is still excellent!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Everything about this great Santa Fe restaurant is at least 5 star. Even the parking lot attendants are terrific: welcoming, helpful and courteous. But it's the food and service that sell us every time. I had the most tender and tasty lobster tails I've ever had - - four of them, with a luscious sauce that matched the lightness of the lobster meat. My husband had sweet, tender scallops. And we both started with a wild mushroom bisque that was loaded with mushrooms and a very savory soup. (I could happily have made another bowl of that my whole dinner but then I'd have missed that lobster.) Just be sure to make a reservation well in advance. This is a very, very popular restaurant - - for very, very good reasons."

  • "Geronimo has been a consistent gem for many years. We never travel to Santa Fe without at least one meal here. The food is imaginative and well prepared. The wine list is well thought out and reasonably priced well."

  • "Exquisite. Everything about Geronimo exceeded my expectations. We were seated in a small room for a romantic dinner as requested. The wait staff were knowledgeable, attentive and professional. The food was delicious and the presentation - over the top. Cocktails were tasty and the wine suggested was a perfect pairing. A yummy dessert with birthday candles made the experience a night to remember."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Chef Eric has successfully continued the tradition of fine dining at Geronimo - one that started so many years ago. Under his leadership for several years, the kitchen is consistent - and consistently excellent. Waitstaff are friendly, efficient and professional. Quinn's wine list covers all of the major regions and varietals and the 'by the glass' program always includes several worthy choices."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The food is incredible. Our waiter was knowledge and friendly. Wonderful wines by the glass. We have been here several times and each time is special. Only issue was if you make a reservation on-line, the restaurant puts you outside. DO NOT SIT OUTSIDE."
