ELOISA-

My grandma Eloisa Rivera was the first person to teach me how to cook. Indeed, women have always formed the foundation of New Mexico’s culinary heritage. Abuelas. Madres. Tias. Hermanas. Their hearts and their hands have been in every dish associated with New Mexico. Among the world’s great cuisines, New Mexican cooking is undoubtedly the most elemental. Fiery chiles. Earthy beans. Ethereal corn. Celestial water from the acequias that irrigate the ranchos. Our cocina celebrates Grandma Eloisa, all Southwestern women, and their satisfying, down-to-earth foods.

This was our 3rd time doing the Georgia O’Keefe menu and can honestly say it was the best we’ve ever had. Our server, Maggie, was phenomenal and not only was the service impeccable, but her knowledge of Georgia was incredible. I highly recommend her as a server, the menu, and the restaurant

All was fantastic except for the drinks!

Tried to order a glass of Chardonnay - tried their 1 option and it was awful.

So ordered a cosmo instead. The bartender put a lot of soda or seltzer water in this drink. Yuck!

Improve your wines by the glass options and hire someone who can make a basic cocktail!

As self proclaimed foodies from Austin we loved Eloisa. They delivered an outstanding experience. I would have to put it in the top 5 meals I’ve ever had. You can eat anywhere but this is the ultimate of a dining experience. Highly recommend sitting at the counter.

We were looking for a place to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday while in Santa Fe. Eloisa proved to be an outstanding choice. The menu was varied and unusual. The meals we had were impeccably prepared. They showed interesting combinations of flavors and tastes. The service was excellent -- attentive but not overly so.

We will dine at Eloisa next time we are in Santa Fe.

The staff at Eloisa couldn't be more accommodating - you get the sense that they REALLY want this restaurant to succeed and they are willing to make every effort to serve you well. We ate outside and the sun was soon beating down on our table, but our waitress offered to move us before we could even ask. My huevos grits were excellent; my fellow diners weren't as crazy about their brunch selections. The pancakes were dry and unimaginative -- my friend didn't complain, but the waitress was very distressed that he had only taken a few bites. Without being asked these were taken off of our bill -- VERY impressive service! The homemade mini tortillas with various jams are a darling idea, well presented, but the edible pansies on top aren't recognizable as pansies when the tortillas arrive - we had to ask what the spots were on the mini-tortillas. Eloisa is really trying but your experience may be 'hit and miss'.

When a meal is memorable I am comfortable giving them a five-star rating. I can’t do that in this instance. In a day or two I will probably forget what I ate. I also felt that they may have been short-handed.
Still. We enjoyed our meal. It just didn’t knock our socks off

Food was very good and deserves better staffing. Would go back to see if our outing was an anomaly in this regard; then decide whether friends would be encouraged to give Eloisa a try.

The meal was just okay, nothing special and was very expensive for Mother's Day Brunch. For the price we were expecting much more of a selection.
The wait staff did not have to do much because their tip was included in the price, so we had to flag someone down many times just to find out where we start with the brunch, etc.
It was a lovely day to be outside as the weather was beautiful so it was nice out on the patio.
We will not go back.

This was our 2nd time to Eloisa and like the first, we were less than impressed. We were seated promptly at a comfortable table inside (patio was open and looked quite nice). My wife and I felt that too many staff were wandering around, none came up us immediately and we couldn't figure out who was responsible for our table. The buffet was good but no grand. The oysters had no flavor. The salmon, crab and cocktail shrimp were quite good which saved the seafood table. The salads were ok but nothing special and the chicken was ok, the salmon was better but the poached salmon was better. The carving stations were good with the quality of meat being high but the Baron of beef was either raw or overcooked. The desserts were fine but nothing special. We had two complaints. First, the restaurant was overstaffed and they wandered around except more than once they tried to take our plates which obviously still had food on them. I objected to the automatic "special occasion" tip of 20% and then presenting us with a bill than requested another tip. I found this very misleading and I don't mind tipping but that is up to me. It will be awhile before we give Eloisa another chance.

Very creative menu, beautifully prepared and presented. The specialty cocktails were unique, and paired well with the small plates as starters. We particularly liked the jicama tacos, the guacamole layer cake, and the Pecos River trout. A 6:00 reservation offered the perfect opportunity to sit outside and enjoy the ambiance of the courtyard in the evening, with live music on a Saturday night a plus. Service was excellent. Would definitely return to try some of the other dishes.

Fabulous food, original and beautifully presented. We had a guacamole layer cake and smoked trout potato pancakes to start and brisket enchiladas and lamb chops for entrees. The appetizers were almost too good to share and the quality of the entrees matched. Extensive wine list, reasonably priced.
Cool, modern interior and lovely courtyard if it warm enough.

Modern environment and creative cuisine not typical of Santa Fe. The digital art was spectacular, again so creative. Small plates (my favorite way to dine) give you the opportunity to taste many things. My favorites were the pork/acorn squash and pastrami tacos! A must is going up to see the sunset from the roof and we had a delightful Manhattan cocktail sitting in comfy chairs. The view was lovely and there are not many places (if any) in Santa Fe where you can enjoy a rooftop.

We were a little skeptical when we walked in. The ambiance was a little too open and bright. The first thing you see is a huge open kitchen with “chefs table” counters with views of the backs of appliances. No visible activity in this part of the kitchen. The booths where we were seated felt a little “Denny’s”.

But much to our surprise, the food was innovative and excellent. Our server was terrific and made great suggestions. Jicama tacos were surprisingly fresh. We had excellent escargot appetizer (special), ribeye and scallops. Everything was interesting, lovely presentation and delicious. One of our better meals in Santa Fe. We would definitely go back!

We waited for an awkward length of time to be acknowledged and seated. Our server was also awkward and the tempo of the meal was strange. Food sounded good on the menu but was not good in reality. Little flavor. Pricey for the quality.
