    Excellent. My second time at Coyote Cafe. After a long day of working as an attorney, I look forward to coming to Coyote Cafe once I week as a place to relax, enjoy great food and service, and bask in the ambiance. You guys are the gold standard.

    Went for anniversary dinner. We have dined here before and has always been good. Tonight restaurant was very hot, I guess no air conditioning. My meal, crispy branzino, was served raw. They comped a glass of wine but not the meal. My wife’s meal was very good. Overall I would say meh, nothing special. Undercooked fish kind of spoils the experience.

    We enjoyed our dinner at Coyote Cafe. Service was great, ambiance was wonderful. We all enjoyed our meals. The rolled caesar salad was fun and delicious. My husband was very happy with the elk tenderloin. Our friends each enjoyed the caesar salad and the mussels and raved about the sauce. I had the pork chop which was cooked perfectly. The sides with it could have been been better. I would have liked the sliced sweet potatoes softer than they were. Overall it was a lovely evening.

    My favorite part of the evening was definitely my service. I appreciate their thoughtfulness and attentiveness. I believe my server’s name was Steven though I’m not sure. He was very kind and attentive. The bussers were also on top of it! Thank you for the lovely anniversary! Can’t wait to come again next year!

    Wonderful birthday dinner at the counter so we were in the middle of the action! Because it was my birthday had a glass of bubbly on the house for myself and husband. We had venison carpaccio which could be better with less dressing on the meat. It was a bit overpowering for such a delicate flavored protein. My husband had pork belly tacos.. wonderful! Paired with Champagne. Entrees were elk tenderloin and the Scallops. Excellent presentation and perfect cooking temperature. Deserts.. butter cake to go the pannacotta was outstanding. Service was great considering we were at the counter our waitstaff was excellent. Loved everything and look forward to trying the salsa that was presented as another birthday 🎂🎉 special touch.

    Wanted to treat some friends to a special night out. The dining room is a wonderful space albeit a very noisy one. Conversation is not easy. The staff is fantastic with a deft hand for details. The wine selection is very good and the menu is not too large while still offering a variety of experiences.

    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!!!
