We have had very good meals here in the past, and so it was shocking how bad the food was this time. The “strip loin” for $48 consisted of four small slices - about 2-1/2 by 1/2 inches each - of dry tepid meat similar to two-day left overs at home, in a mild watery red chili sauce (broth would be a more appropriate term). Fortunately they had ketchup to make it palatable. The accompaniment was a large black chili, still with some seeds, stuffed with a cheese and what seemed to be ground rock lobster concoction that was edible only because of what else was on the plate. So the food was a massive disappointment and the price for this debacle was not only insulting but made me feel like a fool. Anasazi, what happened to you?

Having dined at Anasazi a few years ago, we had high expectations for an elegant and delicious meal. Unfortunately this was not the case this time. Service was fine but the food was definitely lacking. Nothing was terrible but for the price we expected more than just ok. The biggest disappointment was the lobster taco which was not actually a taco but more of an enchilada- rolled flour tortilla, with not much in it! Extremely bland in taste. All 6 people in our party ordered it and were very disappointed. The sirloin my husband ordered was not steakhouse quality and came sliced??
The lemon ricotta ravioli were tasty and well prepared and the margaritas were really good.
Anasazi Restaurant is a lovely venue but this time was not worth the price.

Positively average. We are foodies both high end and occasionally low. We booked the Anasazi knowing it was high end for a special occasion for 6 people. Food is okay had better. We had a 730 reservation but they failed to seat us until 815. Guitar soloist - nice guy - only played for a short while longer leaving restaurant ambience mediocre in addition to staff clearing up empty tables and sweeping the floor. Staff not interactive nor seemingly interested. Very disappointed overall.

The encrusted ahi tuna appetizer was dry and chewy- either it had been frozen or it was very over cooked. Never had that texture in ahi tuna before. The lamb chops with potatoes and eggplant was excellent except for the eggplant potato combination which tasted like ..... well, dirt. It was unpleasant. The lamb was delicious though. Service was poor initially but improved as the night progressed.

Mike’s pork was excellent and my cob salad was just OK. We did like the atmosphere and the music, however the food is very pricey for what you get. With one basic entrée, the salad and a glass of wine, we spent $90.

My husband and I were really looking forward to our experience here, but we left incredibly disappointed. The service was terrible. First, we wanted to make sure to make our reservation in time, so we attempted to valet our car with the restaurant. As they were about to take our car, they asked us if we were staying at the hotel. We told them we were only here for dinner and they said “sorry the parking lot is full” and my husband had to go and find a parking space somewhere. Parking is not easy to find. When we got to our table, we waited a very long time before we were greeted. Then when we finally ordered our drinks, it took her about 10 to 15 minutes to get us our drinks. Unfortunately those experiences put a damper on the entire dinner. The ambience was nice and the food was good, but overall the bad experience was not worth the price. We weren’t the only ones with the bad service. The couple to the right and left of us were also complaining how long the service was taking for them as well.

Traveling to Santa Fe. Last meal of the trip. Was expecting it to be very good from reviews and was very disappointed. It’s too expensive for the quality of food. Same prices as Geronimo, which is far superior. Bread was old and bland. My shellfish dish was incredibly salty and uninspired, with what seemed like frozen shrimps I could get at my grocery store. Husband’s salmon special was better but not great. Octopus small plate was the only good dish. Sorry, Anasazi. Wanted it to be better.

We were so pleased by our Sunday brunch experience here on Memorial Day weekend. The bread/muffin basket was great as well as the drinks. Our food was just as delicious as it was beautiful, highly recommend the French toast and the chicken fajitas. Oh and the inside of the restaurant was beautifully decorated, very nice restrooms downstairs and there is outdoor patio seating available.

We enjoyed multiple courses of the menu and found fine selection s of wine to accompany our meal. Thank you Anazazi and we will be back

The staff is too poorly trained for the restaurant to be as expensive as it is. So many mistakes—four separate staff members asked us for drink and/or food orders; a bottle of white wine was left on the table after a single glass was ordered; plates pushed around haphazardly. Food is okay, but overpriced for what you get.

It has been several years since we at at the Anasazi. It seemed for awhile that the chef was trying to do too many things with the food in an effort to be different. No more. The food was delicious, interesting but yet relatively simply prepared without excessive sauces. Unlike many places, the steamed vegetables were not soggy but perfectly prepared. Service was outstanding. The Inn is going for a 5 Diamond AAA rating. It's definitely heading in the right direction.

I love the changes at Anasazi. The new chef, Peter Obrien is fantastic! He is innovative and creates dishes that you want to try. Well balanced flavors and attractively plated. The service was attentive without being intrusive. A comprehensive wine list to tempt and the ambiance is warm and friendly with a pleasant hum.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and will definitely return soon!

Food and service very good. However, a family with four children negatively affected our experience. The children were quite noisy and at one point one of them was sitting on the dining room floor. Staff was walking around her! Neither the parents nor the staff addressed their behavior. At one point, they were running through the lobby and jumping on the couch. This is not the atmosphere for "fine dining." At the price we paid, we did not expect or deserve the atmosphere of a McDonald's playground. Would think twice about dining there again.
