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

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.

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.
