    We've eaten here before but it was a while ago and a couple friends had been wanting to try it so off we went! I had the filet mignon, Mrs had the lamb and both of us (and our friends) thoroughly enjoyed all the food. Meat was cooked perfectly and the sides (mine was spinach and potato gratin) were just right. Great drinks from the attached lounge/bar (called Secreto) as well.

    We were having difficulty getting an evening reservation and ended up at la tabla. Food was excellent. We had the vegetarian dish as well as the pork chop, which was huge and delicious. The beet salad was huge with large portion of beets. Presentation was beautiful. Would definitely go there again.

    When I needed to organize a dinner for a group of 8 on short notice, I selected Tabla. It was perfect for us. There were enough price points and variety on the menu to satisfy everyone. The food and service were excellent. We particularly enjoyed the ambience (feel of the space, lighting, acoustics). It was nice to be able to hear what was being said at the other end of the table when we wanted to. I wish we had discovered it earlier in our visit to Santa Fe.

    We couldn't get into Pasquale's for lunch one Saturday without a hour wait. What to do? Fire up the iPhone and find something close by. How lucky we were to find Tabla de Los Santos! The food was great—I had a chicken green chile chowder that was so flavorful—and the staff accommodated our table of 8 with only a fe minutes notice. Next time we'll go to Tabla de Los Santos first!

    One does not usually thing of a hotel for fine dinning. In this case, a nice couple lease the restaurant. He is the chef and she is the hostess. The food is exactly right is flavor, portion and presentation. My wife had the Cedar Plank Roasted Organic Salmon and I had the Green Chile Braised Short Ribs. Both were excellent. The waitress, Medina, was very knowledgeable about the menu and the ingredients in each dish. Her recommendations were spot-on. There were several couples besides us who were having their anniversary celebration there that evening besides ourselves and we all were very pleased with our selections. My wife and I shared a flan that was almost too lovely to eat. I had to take a photo of it.

    Our first dining experience at La Tabla proved to be less than expected given the reviews we had read. It was certainly good -- better than average -- but not out of the park. The calamari appetizer was soggy and stringy. The entrees, one of us had trout and the other chicken, were very good though. Service was a little lackluster: the appetizer (which was only half-eaten) was left on the table until mid-way through our entrees, and we waited for several minutes at the hostess stand before anyone acknowledged us.

    With only one night in Santa Fe we wanted a special place to dine in. We found Tabla de Los Santos through Trip Advisor and made reservations for a Sat. night. We were not disappointed. The patio was lovely, the service excellent. We shared the cheese macaroni lollipops (fun and tasty) and the beet salad (very good). The lamb chops (2) were superb served with phyllo pocket filled with spinach, mushrooms, feta cheese which was out of this world. The New York steak done med. rare was perfect! Our server, Ben made this evening a wonderful experience. We ordered local wine to enjoy with our meal. This dining experience was far above expectation, superb food. We will definitely come back.

    We had dinner here (2 couples) on our last night in Santa Fe and everything was outstanding. The Empanada starter, corn green chile chowder, beet salad, chicken with bread pudding, steak & frites, salmon, etc. were all delicious. We are foodies with high expectations and Tabla de Los Santos was the best meal we had in Santa Fe. We had such a wonderful evening and our server (delightful young woman) was attentive and very helpful with recommendations. I don't usually write reviews but this restaurant is lovely with top notch food so I wanted to recognize the chef and staff...they run a great place. You must go!

    The Chef at Tabla de Los Santos must be a magical being. Our party of 3 ordered 3 completely different meals (vegetarian, chicken and salmon) & all were excellent. The indoor dining area is on the smaller side, but very comfortable. There is also an outdoor dining area, with thick adobe walls & a fountain. Service is leisurely and attentive, not to be confused with slow. You are not rushed, but you are not forgotten. If you wish to order the chocolate lava cake for dessert, it will take 25 minutes to prepare so order it with your meal. As with everything else in Santa Fe, it's more expensive. However the meal will be so delicious, you won't really care.

    We enjoyed our quiet meal at Tabla on a night that was very busy and congested in Santa Fe. This was a welcome oasis of calm. The service was good but not fully informed on the dishes. The salads were very good. The bread was excellent and came with superb garlic hummus. Also excellent veggies, pork, calamari, and wine list. But some dishes had too much cream, and the waitress did not know or didn't mention that the dishes contained lots of cream, nor did the menu mention it. When asked specifically, they accommodated dietary concerns, but you won't be able to tell what you are going to get from the menu description and without asking specifically. Portions are big, making the value good even though prices are high.

    The food was good, nothing spectacular but pretty good. The staff though was really wonderful. Our took the initiative to ask the chef if the grits could be made without dairy (I was going to just not eat the grits), and chef said yes. Little things like that can make a huge difference. A friend popped in for a quick chat, and she was treated well.

    We had a very enjoyable brunch on the patio. Arriving just as they opened the Brunch service, we were seated immediately and watched the place fill up inside of 30 minutes while we enjoyed coffee and some excellent muffins. The orange juice is freshly squeezed and our entrees were quite good. The blue corn pancakes were light and tasty; the steak with my steak and eggs arepas was lean, tender and flavorful. If the price hadn't been so reasonable. I would've guessed it to be beef tenderloin slices. Service was attentive and pleasant. A good value and located in the heart of the square.

    My husband and I were delighted with our choice of restaurants for our anniversary dinner. After a disappointing meal the prior night at a Mexican restaurant in Santa Fe, we were totally satisfied with everything about this restaurant. Marvelous margaritas (with fantastic smoky salt on the rim), superb salads (the warm beet salad was superb), and excellent entrees. We ate inside and enjoyed the quiet atmosphere...hard to find in this day of NOISY restaurants. Highly recommend Tabla de Los Santos!

    Just had lunch in the courtyard and the food was superb. I loved their Corn Chicken Chowder and for main course had the Southwest Mufuletta sandwich. It was at least 3 inches high with a wonderful Ciabatta bun and full of wonderful meats and cheeses. Very happy with the whole experience. I am going back there with friends this coming Sunday for Breakfast which is also very good.

    I am a local and thought I would give Table de Los Santos a try this past Sunday night. I was amazed. This restaurant is a hidden gem and a closet Five Star restaurant. Very unassuming in many ways and well worth it. The food was beyond outstanding. We started with the appetizer and I had the halibut and my partner had the salmon. All three dishes were made to perfection and tasted out of this world. We enjoyed the Blackberry cobbler for dessert. I would put this Chef and his kitchen up against Bobbie Flay any day...the food was that good. I will be going back to my new favorite Santa Fe restaurant very soon!

    The food was delicious; great red flannel corned beef has, Southwestern steak and eggs. We were fortunate to have the young brunette hostess take our order though we later had to deal with the older blonde server (manager?) who appears to be depressed and is quite unpleasant. She bizarrely gave us a hard time for asking to have a side order of extra pickled onions for the steak and eggs! We sent friends here the next day, she was their server, and overall they had a negative experience because of her bad attitude.

    I had been searching for a restaurant while we were visiting Santa Fe. I must have read through a dozen different restaurants and their reviews always ending in disappointment. Then I found Tabla de Los Santos and very review was a rave... Well here's another one. We had a fabulous meal! Our server, Angela, was a delight and guided us to the best scallop we have ever eaten, a magnificent pork chop and a delightful duck breast. We had a nice chat with Mrs. Borden, the restaurant's co-owner and Chef Clay's wife. Next time we are in Santa Fe I will be tempted to stay at the St. Francis just so we can be closer to the restaurant.

    We live in Santa Fe and I don't know why it took us so long to dine at Tabla. We will definitely return. Everything was outstanding--the food, the service, and the lovely patio. We ordered the salmon and the scallops. The presentation was beautiful and the taste was superb. For dessert, we had the warm blackberry cobbler which came with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Everything on the menu looked appetizing, and when we asked the waiter for his recommendations, he had a difficult time narrowing the list down. We can understand why.

    We did not know much about Tabla de Los Santos before booking a table for dinner recently, beyond what others had written in their reviews. In short, we were extremely impressed with all aspects of our meal. From the grilled shrimp and chile starter to our salads to our superbly prepared entrees of duck and a filet, everything we had was creative and perfectly executed. Further, the service was efficient, extremely personable, and quite knowledgeable--in fact, we ended up taking many of the waitress' recommendations, which worked out very well. The restaurant is located just a few blocks off of the Plaza, but it still felt like a intimate experience. This is a place that will be at the top of our list for our next visit to Santa Fe.

    We dined on June 22, 2014, our last night in Santa Fe. The restaurant was crowded for outdoor dining, but the interior dining room was very quiet and refined. Our server, Artie, was professional, charming, and available when we needed him ( ask for him if you want a great evening). Cocktails were generous, my wife especially liked her Irish Old Fashion. Artichoke soup and Beet Salad were good starters. Her filet Mignon was perfectly prepared and presented; my lamb chops were equally good. Located just off the old Plaza section of Santa Fe in a fine hotel, the restaurant and bar are a treat.
