Diner Reviews
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Took my mom there to celebrate her 70th birthday along with her sister and my 19 year old daughter. There is a reason why Geronimo is rated one of the top ten restaurants in the US! It was phenomenal! The lobster was amazing and the elk was the best I have ever tasted! Do not leave without tasting the caramelized banana cream pie...it is life-changing!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "From appetizers to dessert, quality ingredients handled with imagination & care. Professional service and valet parking a real plus on Canyon drive."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Sitting outside at this place is very nice but they need to control the flies. I would opt for an inside table next time in the summer. That said the food and service was good and I would go back."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "We went to Geronimo's twice while we were in Santa Fe. The first was for my husbands birthday and the food and service was so outstanding that we went back. Can't say anything bad from the beginning to the end. A must "go to" in Santa Fe."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "This place is a special occasion place for us. It has a wonderful feel. My wife ordered the vegetarian tasting menu and every course was great. My lamb was the only disappointment. The presentation and vegetables with it were great, but the meat was cut way to thin and two of the chops were mostly fat. I will go back, but order the elk rather than the lamb."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Food was great, as always, but service was slow and indifferent. Had to ask for another glass of wine! After placing our order, we never saw our waiter again until he brought the check. Traditionally, we have dinner at Geronimo on our last night in Santa Fe, but now we may make different arrangements."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Cucumber melon soup toooo spicy and I do like spicy. The key lime pie tasted like a normal cheese cake. Both were disappointing. Prices were over the top. We had dined at 3 different restaurants in Santa Fe and all had better food and much lower prices."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "This was our second visit to Geronimo and again the experience was outstanding. The service was attentive, but not cloying and the food was magnificent. The elk tenderloin and white prawn dishes were superb."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "We had an excellent meal in all respects. Both salads, one pear and one wasabi Caesar, were great. The elk tenderloin was great as always. My wife's steak was a bit overdone for the medium she requested, probably should have asked for medium rare. Service was a little slow starting but picked up and was overall very good. We shared the lemon curd crepe desert, served with limoncello, and it is not to be missed. Still thinking about it. Geronimo remains one of Santa Fe's best restaurants. The ambience is restful and quiet with nice background music. All in all a great dining experience. Nice setting on upper Canyon Road. The valet parking is helpful as parking can be in short supply at times."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Our experience was excellent from the valet who was helpful as we drove up, to the attentive staff, the service and our dinner. The food was delicious and beautifully presented without gong over board in some quirky trendy way. We had just enough attention, while allowing us our time for conversation. We'll be back!"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "My wife and I had a terrific meal on a recent vacation with our 3 children and her sister and daughter. EVERYONE agreed it was one of the best meals we have had. Service was excellent from anyone we interacted with - from the valet, the hostess, and our waiter. We will definitely go back on our next trip!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Overall an excellent experience but in Santa Fe I expect more. The Rose should be a "safe" choice for food with a little heat. It was a lack luster with none of the sparkle, sweetness or the vanilla that I expected. Their Reisling serves that purpose since it is a sweet Reisling. The menu is similar to Coyote Cafe, which leads me to believe that there has been some travel between kitchens. A little more sensitivity to local ingredients and less to rival restaurants would be smart. I realize it is the fashion to layer flavors on the plate so that each is distinct from the other. However, if your kitchen zeitgeist is French you should work on blending those separate flavors into something new and unexpected."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We came to celebrate our anniversary, and started with a complimentary glass of champagne. What a great start. The wine list offers great selections, and the tuna tartar competed with the best of all tuna tartars I have ever tasted. When I consider that I love tuna tartar, this was a great feat. The only downside was the service which could use much improvement."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We visit Santa Fe every summer for the opera. This is our third time dining here and each time it gets even better! The crab cakes are wonderful, there isn't one miss on the menu. Camille the bartender is the bomb, make sure you try her Manhatten !"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Geronimo has been one of Santa Fe's top restaurants for many years and deservedly so. My wife and I had appetizers, main courses, and dessert and every single dish was truly memorable. It is not an inexpensive restaurant, but worth every penny!"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "This was our first time to the restaurant. What a great place. Our food was superb along with a wonderful wait staff. Would we go back---YES."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "after eating at the sister restaurant, Coyote Cafe, my friends and I were psyched to go to Geronimo. As we walked in we noticed that the restaurant was as lovely as CC, and, while the gnocchi appetizer and shrimp and rice cakes were excellent, the kale and caesar salads were only ok. The Halibut was overcooked, and the salmon and ravioli a bit bland. The desserts were mixed-the banana cream pie was excellent and the key lime tort tasteless. Overall, we were not impressed, especially when the bill was $100 higher than Coyote Cafe."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Food was especially good, the elk dish was outstanding, the vegetarian pairings were good, with the mushroom bisque being the most memorable. The thing I will remember most is that the service was unhurried and superb. It allowed us to slowly savor our meal and wine while we enjoyed visiting with our friends. We asked for and were seated at a quiet table in the atrium room. It was a good choice. Will recommend to friends and return on our next visit to Sante Fe. Our server who was from Northern Europe was excellent. We really got to know her assistant well though and he had an excellent sense of humor. We enjoyed him a lot."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Although the food is great and it is in a great location we were surprised at how close you sit to others in the restaurant. We were so close we could hardly carry on our own conversation due to tables next to us engaging in loud personal conversations of which we could hear every word. It was quite distracting especially when the table next to us proceeded to make out in public. (kissing and fondling) As I said the food was excellent but the service was a little slow."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Wonderful evening. We ate on the front patio and enjoyed every moment and morsel. Outstanding wait staff."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Everything about our evening was perfect. We dined on the patio, the evening air was comfortable and watching the colors change as it grew darker was a treat. But the real treat was our meal. Presentation gets a 10 and the flavors get 10+++ We will return. Loved the crab cake starter and lamb dinner prepared perfectly with exciting flavors in every bite. Orange cycle cake made a perfect finish. Service was equal to the food."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Great food, great service, excellent evening. Staff were incredibly attentive. One thing we noticed is that despite moving crowds in and out all evening, we barely heard the clatter of plates and cutlery."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Best thing is food quality, preparation and especially preparation"
    Dined on 7/11/2014

  • "very romantic with great food, delightful wines and professional staff!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Our choice to dine at Geronimo was rewarded with excellent food -I loved my 4-course prix fixe vegetarian meal- and superb service. We very much enjoyed our talk and service of our Dutch hostess. Everyone was gracious and attentive and my husband and son agreed with me that we should return in the next visit to Santa Fe."

  • "Excellent food, one small glitch. Excellent service, lovely people."

  • "The food is really good. The outside patio is very nice to sit in during the warm months. Everytime I dine at Geronimo's I like to try something new."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "One of our favorite restaurants in Santa Fe. The elk tenderloin is consistently outstanding, and the service is over the top. I had the soft softshell crab appetizer as an entre and while good, it was not great. Wine list is superb with nice selections for every budget. Desserts are incredible."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "IN addition to the food being absolutely amazing, I have never experienced such outstanding service. We have both experienced many luxury restaurants, hotels, and resorts and the service here is even better than what we have experienced at the Ritz. It is clear that all the staff are extremely well trained and there is extremely high standards of performance in this area. When my boyfriend asked about the men's room, a staff not only escorted him, but announced, 'GUEST COMING THROUGH" and all the staff parted to allow him to pass through, since you had to pass the kitchen entrance. Total top class experience."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "I couldn't say how much I enjoyed my evening at Geronimo. The wonderful service started at the valet and ended as we drove away. The food and the service could not have been more wonderful. The staff were very kind, social, and informed as to the entirety of their menu. Would highly recommend to everyone!"

  • "All good. Quiet outdoor dining, excellent food and selection and great service"

  • "Geronimo never disappoints. Always at the top of our list when visiting Santa Fe. Dinner on the porch is always a great experience."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "We enjoyed dinner outside on the intimate covered "porch" at Geronimo on a beautiful July evening. The porch has two rows of tables-for-two lined up along the face of the building and against the railing around the front of the porch, flanking both sides of the entry to this historic old structure in the gallery district on Canyon Road. Clear plastic "roll-ups" can be deployed in case of rare windy weather or other inclement conditions, but were not needed on our visit. You are seated very close to the narrow street as people come and go, but it adds to the ambiance. The food was outstanding. Crab cakes were small but savory. Elk tenderloin was expertly prepared. Banana cream pie was a real treat. Wait service is expert. Special!"
