    We love Coyote Cafe for any and all special occasions. The food is always top notch and the price point is right for the value. It's a lively space but usually not overwhelming with sounds. I recommend it to friends all the time.

    Father’s Day Was hoping for a quiet evening dinner since we don’t dine out much. I remember Coyote Cafe inside as being calm and serene… It was the exact opposite this time. My husband and I sat across from each other and had a difficult time caring on a conversation. Very busy and VERY noisy. Otherwise everything else was perfect!!!

    Everyone's appetizers were incredible and we shared the Venison Carpaccio and the Green Chile Mac &amp; Cheese appetizers, which are both best in state. The GM Francisco elevated everything further with a few thoughtful freebies thrown in, while heading the most knowledgeable &amp; attentive staff around. Our waitress Annette was impeccable- The second you think about wanting something, it appears at the table! An honor to dine here.

    The Quail was amazing done, juicy and tender, and divers scallops were very well seasoned and cooked to perfection. They did forget to bring out one of our sides and the sweet corn bread but they gave us a free dessert to make up for it, along with bringing out what they forgot too. The black garlic mashed potatoes had a weird texture to it. Like they mixed it with potatoes and yams and it was really heavy on the black garlic (in my opinion too much). The bacon green chili, mac and cheese were shell pasta which I appreciate, but felt very average and could have done without. The Mexican vanilla bean ice cream on top of the banana cream pie was my favorite part of the meal. There are a lot of places where the money is not worth the price in Santa Fe, but I was happy to spend this amount for this quality of food. Would definitely recommend this place and looking to be back soon. A better place for a special night out.

    We had a great evening at Coyote Café. The entire experience was wonderful. Our primary server, Nate, was friendly and engaging with our table. He was both very friendly and professional and helped create the positive experience for our table. Additionally, the support service staff was really responsive and very friendly. Last but not least the food was exceptional. We had the filet mignon, elk and lamb chops. All of it was wonderful.

    In our opinion, Coyote Cafe continues to be the best restaurant in Santa Fe. My wife and I who were celebrating our wedding anniversary had the elk tenderloin and Caesar salad both of which were perfectly prepared. Our server Andrew and the rest of the staff were professional as always and the service was efficient and timely. Already looking forward to our next meal there.

    Really incredible experience. One of the best restaurants in Santa Fe hands down. They brought champagne and desert for my partner’s birthday which I felt was a very thoughtful touch. The food was some of the best I’ve had in Santa Fe and the atmosphere was lively and truly wonderful. Cannot wait to go back!

    If you are visiting our beautiful city, your visit won't be complete without dinner at The Coyote Cafe and Santacafe! The food at both restaurants is outstanding and the service is excellent. Under the careful eye of restauranteur, Quinn Stephenson, every detail is thoughtfully considered. If you are lucky enough to have Rob as your server, we guarantee a memorable evening! Lunch on the patio at Santacafe is another great experience. Dinner is exceptional too.
