Excellent wait staff that was conversational friendly and knowledgeable. The restaurant was set to close soon so the wine list was apparently limited but nevertheless comprehensive. Not a cheap night out but certainly worth the expense.

Fantastic! Our 19 year old daughter said "she felt so taken care of" by our waitress.

As always Coyote Cafe is outstanding. Impecable service, great food and perfect ambiance for any ocacion and even with kids. Last night we spent New Years eve and our table of 10 was the last one to leave and we were attended to the last minute as gracefully as we were when we arrived. Been going there for years and always taking friends and family, it is highly recomended.

The worst meal I’ve ever had in Santa Fe. The food was cold and tasteless. This was my recommendation for our group. I was throughly embarrassed.

Great place, went for Nee Years Eve with the family! We had a great server, picky eaters but she made it work with great suggestions and even going to management to get off the menu items! Watch out for the hostess .. think she may bite!

The problem for Coyote Cafe is folks (like me) who dined there when Mark Miller was large and in charge expect that same level of attention to all aspect of the dining experience and it's just not there. It's not bad but at their current price point it's a bit of a disappointment. The beef tartar appetizer at $24 was not worth $24. The price point of $40 plus for 99% of the entrees is off the mark. Service is very good. The physical plant is very nice. I admit to being a tough grader - they are trying and it's a strong A minus/B plus but it's just not as good as it once was.

We've been to Coyote Cafe 20 years ago and were quite amazed that the food and service remained excellent. Their cocktails are excellent and the food outstanding. The service professional and friendly - striking just the right note. Great for special occasions as well as just a good night out.
