Coyote Cafe continues to be Santa Fe's ICONIC restaurant, established in 1987, Coyote Café is recognized as the restaurant that brought modern southwestern cuisine to the country.
Must-have dishes include Diver Scallops, Southwest Rolled Caesar Salad and the legendary 24-ounce "Cowboy Cut" Ribeye, a nod to our Southwestern legacy. Contemporary favorites also include Peppery Elk Tenderloin, Mesquite Grilled Lobster Tails, Hawaiian Tuna Poke and of course, Green Chile Mac 'n Cheese.
An Award Winning Wine List - with hard to find selections like Sine Qua Non - is complemented by a full bar which includes unique signature cocktails.
Ate here 25 years ago & it was as good as I remembered. All was well until an incredibly noisy party was seated next to us so we asked for our bill & departed. Cheryl
We received a lovely flute of champagne to honor my friends birthday. It was from a local winery.
Fantastic meal, beautifully prepared and presented. Service was very attentive and super friendly. Great place — wish we lived in Santa Fe to eat here again!
The tartare appetizer was excellent
Food was delicious and beautiful. Service was top notch.
My daughter and I spent 3 days in Santa Fe 10 years ago and Coyote Cafe was our favorite restaurant. My husband and I went right back on our first night of a month long visit. Just as good as the first time! Not many things you can say that about, right?
Everything was outstanding - probably one of our best meals at one of our favorite restaurants. We were there with good friends, everyone ordering different items from the special cocktails to the appetizers and entrees. We all loved everything. The special touches provided by the owner and the server made it extra special. The only downside was a group of four near us who were incredibly noisy and didn't care that they were spoiling the occasion for others. Glares over to them did little to help. That isn't the restaurants fault and I don't know how that could have been handled differently. Otherwise, it was a perfect evening.
Excellent from start to finish. Very professional and friendly service. Grasiella did an outstanding job! Awesome food. Best bread pudding dessert I’ve ever eaten. Make a reservation and go. Don’t miss this when you visit Sante Fe!
Always excellent! Always a dining adventure!
Nate and Ben took such good care of us!
Amazing service. The cocktails and food were not only delicious but beautifully presented. Highly recommended.
This was the best meal we had while in Santa Fe along with the best service. Paris was great. Highly recommend
Very nice dinner celebration, noisy but delicious with excellent service.
Everyone at the table raved about the food and the superb service. I had the lobster and it was cooked to perfection. We will definitely go back, highly recommend this restaurant.
Everything was excellent. Elk tenderloin, mesquite grilled lobster tails, creme brulee, key lime tart. It was 6:15, already crowded, everyone having a great time. Servers all work as a team. Professional, not overbearing, not overly friendly. Unfortunately, the staff is better dressed than many of the (esp) male patrons. Shorts, flip flops. Some even remove the flip flops. Ugh.
The squash blossom stuffed with a lobster ricotta filling, dipped in a tempura batter and delicately fried to perfection was a thing of beauty and a delight for the pallet! Perfection.
In a word: outstanding. In another word: exceptional. A world class restaurant that was truly a highlight of an unforgettable vacation in the mountain west. Signature cocktails were amazing. The food was excellent. And the service was as good as it gets anywhere, be it New York, LA, London, Paris, etc. Our waitstaff, Ben, is thoughtful, professional, exceptionally knowledgeable, warm and an overall delightful person. If and when we visit Santa Fe again, we will be sure to make reservations at the Coyote Cafe a priority in our planning.
Coyote Cafe my favorite restaurant in Santa Fe. The food, service and ambiance are outstanding.

The BEST restaurant in Santa Fe! Service was superb and the food masterful!
Wow what great service! Paaris was a fantastic server which made the overall experience so pleasurable. Aside from the service, the food was also excellent
Probably our best dining experience ever. Great service, unbelievably good food (get the Lobster!) and tremendously good service. We sat at the bar and got to watch the food being cooked. The chefs were very friendly. Highly Recommend. Would give 10 stars if I could!
This place more than lives up to it's amazing reputation. Recommended by friends, we were more than happy. Elk and Osso Bucco were both done perfectly. Would definitely go back if we come through this area again.
Excellent food and fun ambiance made for a wonderful night. The chocolate sphere was a perfect finish to an already superior food experience. Loved the rolled Caesar and elk tenderloin.
Waitress outstanding, as was food and general experience
