    Excellent food, smallish portion sizes. The restaurant is very open, which is nice, but it was difficult to carry a conversation because of the noise of the place. Decor and furniture are nice, service was a bit indifferent but prompt and effective. Prices are high but not terrible. Selection is somewhat limited. Overall a good experience.

    I live in Santa Fe and the best way to please out-of-town guests is to take them to Coyote Cafe. (Book a reservation early.) Waitstaff and hostesses at front desk are the best. Of course the food was its usual superb.

    Besides the excellent service from the wait staff, the rest was not good. Had a timed reservation but didn't get seated until almost a half hour later. Our main course was delivered to the table next to us and until someone came around and asked how things were, only then was it discovered we didn't have our entree-more time passed while they had to start from scratch to cook it. the dessert that we had ordered in the beginning was long gone by the time we were to have dessert. Since we had to prepay and high cost, it was not a good experience for a so called high end restaurant.

    Rushed by staff to finish our main course clearly wanted people moved through as quickly as possible. Waited 25 minutes for our reservation. Food was very good so a shame to have the experience spoiled. Man at next table had some type of attack and sat with ice on neck, very pale and with anxious family. Felt for him but made us very uncomfortable. Took dessert home rather than stay.

    We had a reservation for 3:00 pm, we had to wait an additional 20 minutes as our table wasn’t ready. While we were waiting 3 or 4 parties arrived after us and were seated immediately. We were told that our assigned table wasn’t ready. We had paid in advance and the tip had been added, too. So a little off our expectations for a $440.00 meal.

    Hadn’t been in years and had a good experience. Three couples dined together to celebrate three birthdays. Our server (Paris?) was fabulous. We appreciated being seated at a round table, which made conversation easy. The noise level, however, was deafening as the restaurant filled up. Our meals were very good, though some could have been served hotter. Menu choices are diverse and portion sizes are satisfying. Desserts were excellent. Our server was attentive, informative, and thoughtful. It’s priced appropriately for fine dining in Santa Fe.

    It was our first time at Coyote Cafe and the entire experience was pleasant. We sat at the counter where we were able to watch three of the amazing chefs prepare many of the items on the menu. It appeared to us that the two most popular items on the menu were the Elk Steak and the Beef Short Ribs and since we had one of each we can understand why. They were both excellent! Also, the Deep Fried Burrata was a wonderful starter.

    Our experience was excellent! From the food to the service we could not have been more satisfied! Our group ordered the Caesar Salad, The Elk, the Pork Chop, and the Short Rib. They also gave us a complimentary Mac and cheese for the table to share! Everything was wonderful. We also really enjoyed the pomegranate martinis. Delicious!

    Dinner was wonderful. The rolled Caesar Salad was perfect. Mussels were the best that my wife & sister have ever had. My filet was perfectly cooked and the sauce was incredible. Our waiter, Parris was fun, professional and very helpful in all aspects of service. He helped make the evening very enjoyable. All of the other staff was so nice. This was our second time dining at Coyote Cafe. We will definitely be back next time we’re in town.

    Outstanding service! It was a special occasion and I asked to have a bottle of champagne waiting when we arrived. They picked the perfect bottle and had it waiting. We even arrived a little early and they were so gracious to accommodate us. The food and service was amazing and many of the staff congratulated us on our engagement. We felt very special and it was such a perfect atmosphere to celebrate!
