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.

Beautiful food. The best Cheeseburger known to mankind. But, don’t let this fool you. Their pastrami tacos are special and the breakfast omelet superb. The waitstaff and the management provide stellar service. We ah e never had a bad bite in this restaurant. Take note: the chocolate mole ice cream is not to be missed.

Everything was too salty and salad had way too much dressing. Heavy hand in the kitchen.

Eloisa, located inside a hotel, deserves the kind of reputation hotel restaurants have: serviceable for a meal, but nothing special. It has a small courtyard for outdoor seating with live music that dominates the space. Inside, the restaurant decor resembles a cafeteria but with candlelight. Service is good. The menu has an interesting mix of options but the kitchen does not deliver on either presentation or flavor. With a dozen different ingredients, the paella was bland. The duck confit ravioli came in a pile of oversized pasta pockets stuck to each other. If you're staying at the hotel and have to schedule a business meeting over dinner, the food will not distract from your business but it won't be a memorable Santa Fe experience.

Young celebrity chef abandons New Mexico outpost to look after his interests back in CA. Food mediocre. Serving staff glum, disinterested, unconnected to the work. Such a train wreck would not last long in a competitive urban market but might slog it out for a few years in this tepid resort town.

The Georgia O’Keefe Tasting menus was amazing. Local ingreadeants and inspired by herbs and other plants from her garden. The plates are minor works of art as they are served.

We had heard much about this place before coming. What a disappointment. Upon arrival, we were seated with drink menus. Our server arrived ten minutes later and asked if we wanted to hear the specials. We said we didn't have dinner menus but would be interested in a drink. She didn't take our order. Dinner menus arrived after five minutes. Our server eventually stopped by to go over the specials and this time managed to take our drink order. After about ten minutes she returned to take our dinner orders but we pointed out that our drinks had not arrived. Appetizers promptly came followed by cocktails. Not what we had requested and our server seemed rather put off when I politely said I didn't really care for a salad with my martini and to not rush us through dinner. Service was clumsy. We both had a version of surf and turf. Served barely warm. The purees and sauces were murky and resulted in the turf being indistinguishable from the surf. We finished. Plates lingered. Water glasses remained empty. We shared a dessert and requested a check. And waited. Overall, the experience was grim. And expensive. As it turns out, a few local friends shared similar experiences and recommended better options (which we have enjoyed).

Decided on "small" plates for the evening and they were both creative and delicious...and generous in portion size. Beautiful to the eye as well as the palate. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. We had one of the best Mezcal drinks we've ever had. My husband was indecisive about an after dinner cocktail so the server suggested he name off some characteristics he likes in a drink. He did and the bartender made the perfect cocktail for him! (no suprise as she won NM Best Bartender of the Year). We had a fantastic evening and will return when we're in Santa Fe next time.

While the restaurant is pretty, the food was uneven and the service was rushed and unfriendly. Service issues started at the door, when we had to check in twice, and both "hostesses" seemed irritated that we had interrupted whatever they were doing when we arrived. We were served cocktails, appetizers, first courses, and entrees within 40 minutes. Something's wrong when your second course arrives and your cocktail is only half empty.
My pork dish had been precooked and reheated, leaving me with a cool, dry tenderloin with no sauce or other help.
An odd disruptive detail : on the wall right behind our table a screen was playing videos of worms, skeletons, and other unappetizing scenes. My friends thought this was inappropriate and wished the arty show wasn't there.

Ordered the burger. Meat wasn't clean tasting. Bacon was leather tough. The potato chips were ordinary out of the bag type.
Tomatoes were pale and boring.
The Biscochitos/ice cream dessert was sad and forgettable.
Will not return.

Chose Eloise for a dinner meet up with close friend. What a great place--vibrant, cool, hip and creative menu. Everything was great! I had the veg tacos--so creative and tasty. Others at my table had the chef's special and crab salad. The desserts were amazing == as were the signature cocktails. A winner start to finish..I highly recommend.

We had a lovely dinner on Eloisa's sunken patio. The service was great, and the food (in our case, wonderful small plates and an excellent scallop entree) was a creative and delicious take on traditional Southwestern cuisine.

This is a very nice place. We enjoyed dinner on the patio and were very pleased with the lack of street noise. Live music was very nice. Food was wonderful and well presented. Service was spot on but not too intrusive. For dessert, try the Chocolate Mole ice cream with a good port and you won’t be disappointed.

Amazing meal at Eloisa! My first night in Santa Fe and could not have started the trip any better. The cuisine was wonderful and we had the most impressive server. She was knowledgeable about the menu and wine list, taking great care to point out the uniqueness of each option. you MUST go!
