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.

Loved the place and Mario our waiter was very attentive and went out of his way to make sure we get exactly what we wanted. Highly recommended and absolutely love the decor / lighting
The service was horrible- from not knowing simple etiquette of which side to put fork and knife on to providing “Victorian” blue flower dishes to divide entree. Excessive wait time in an empty restaurant to be acknowledged let alone receive bottle of wine and first corse. 2 hours for a working weekday lunch is abusive.
Salmon way over cooked when asked to cook according to Chef’s choice. Obviously Luncheon chef has no idea as to how to cook salmon.
A great disappointment but typical of Santa Fe where it appears to be an a different universe. Surely someone knows the difference...
I always enjoy Eloisa. This week I went with 3 friends. I think their lunch was better than mine. I ordered the huevos rancheros this time, o see how Eloisa does theirs. And I decided that there are several restaurants in Santa Fe who do better at that dish. The major drawback for me this time around was our waiter's disappearance, and the search for somebody to give us our check. We finally appealed to the bartender at the rear of the restaurant.
Meal and service were great...all had branzino-delicious!!
Great Restaurant, very interesting and delicious menu. Jicama tacos were excellent. The only negative was the coffee we ordered to cap off the meal was pretty weak.
Food is good. Kitchen lighting on the side of the restaurant that looks into the kitchen-not unpleasant, just not romantic. Food is good but could use a better balance of flavors. I had the osso bucco with fava beans. It was good but the beans and meat, being on the drier side needed something wetter and acidic for balance. Pretty good though in general.
In general the food was excellent, however I do have a couple personal pet peeves: the lamb chops were served with mint, which I've always taken to be a method of masking (spoiling) the taste of lamb or mutton--would have preferred rosemary, or simply salt and pepper; why do deserts have to be so complex these days (simple doesn't have to mean boring)?
Major complaint: Acoustics suck: high noise level is deadening, stultifying, certainly not "energetic"! Next time I'll bring earplugs.
The lamb chops and turkey mains and pumpkin crepe brûlée were outstanding and the presentation of the food was gorgeous and festive. The crime brûlée in tiny real pumpkins, with pepino brittle flowers and cookie earth were memorable. It made us feel like royalty.
The entire evening totally exceeded our hopes for a dine out Thanksgiving!
I Reserved a High Top table by the Bar, for the Thanksgiving Georgia O’Keefe Buffet meal. The atmosphere was relaxing and quiet to enjoy my meal by. The staff were very attentive and anticipated my needs. The selection of entrees and drinks, dessert selections, were second to none. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Eloisa’s. I will look forward to conveying my experience to my friends, and encourage them to visit Eloisa’s. Thank you for a delightful experience.
We were fortunate to score a reservation for Thanksgiving. The fixed menu was creative and scrumptious. The service was excellent and the dining relaxed.
Thanksgiving dinner was excellent and everything we expected.
Modern New Mexican at its best!
The wonderful butternut soup with pumpkin had a dusting of chile and a dollop of meringue. And I would drive for hours to have it again; it was simply wonderful. I had the small plate of pastrami tacos with mustard, sauerkraut, and jalapeño. They may not be traditional, but they were perfectly delicious. Hot tea was served in a perfectly suitable individual pot, and the desserts.... I will plan ahead next time, just so I can eat two desserts. The mango creme bruleee was delectable, and my lunchmate had an extraordinary lime creme dish served with layers of wafers. Everything we were served was perfectly prepared and plated, and the service couldn't have been better. Eloisa's is a New Mexico treasure.
Excellent food and great waiter.
Large restaurant with open kitchen. Food was excellent. Paella Was fantastic. Loaded with Clem’s shrimp scallops and fish.
Didn't know what to expect but everything was outstanding. Not only the food but the cocktails and the wine, what a nice evening.
Excellent food and service. We took advantage of the 2 for 1 November special.
Nice place. Food was okay.
This was our third time to Eloisa, and we have had an outstanding experience every time. The menu is unique and the food is incredible. The service is also top notch. There are plenty of great restaurants in Santa Fe, but none better than Eloisa!
Good drinks good service. Food was rather salty
Excellent Food and Service. Best gazpacho ever! Beautiful decor
Drink was great... I’ve been in McDonald’s with better decor. Lost me at the hostess playing candy crush and the freezer filled with sandwiches. This is a cafeteria for sad business people not a restaurant. Or waitress was nice.
Very nice restaurant, especially for being connected to a hotel. We had a wonderful experience there with delicious food and very good service.
Really great experience! We made a last minute reservation and got seated in a private dining area. Felt like we were treated like royalty and the food was amazing. We had such a great time!
The evening we were at Eloisa was bad from walking in the door.
We had a reservation for a table we were seated in the bar.
It was a very busy evening the server was very busy and we had to wait a very long time to place our order , get our appetizer and our food.
Once our dinner was served my husband asked for the check and paid so we would not have to wait for that too.
My husband found a hair in his food.......
We tried to flag down our server with no luck so we just left having paid over 80.00 for inedible food.
There are so many choices for great food and terrific service in Santa Fe, don’t waste your time at Eloisa’s .
The Georgia O’Keefe dinner experience was exceptional. The young lady taking care of us and orchestrating the evening was enthusiastic and went out of her way for us. Food was fabulous and the portion sizes great The wine pairings well done. Took away some great ideas. Chef’s flavours in the meal were a wonderful way to appreciate southwest cuisine with a current and modern approach. So glad it wasn’t the diner taco versions pretending to be cuisine. Take a cab if you are not staying in the Drury or nearby. Well worth the time it takes for the multiple courses. Fresh and local ingredients and loved the presentations on the photo plates.
Excellent food! Lamb was cooked perfectly MR and seasoning was so flavorful! Paella also perfect, and squash filled with carnitas was creative and superb!
Wonderful creative menu. Service was exceptional. Look forward to dining here again soon!
Best place to eat in Santa Fe
All of our meals were delicious, ghost ranch scallops, trout, lamb and brisket tenderloin!! Blue corn muffins are great!
My daughter and I dined here for her birthday. Food was great , presentation was great , server was knowledgeable and there when needed . I rated this very good but only because I never rate anything excellent, however I could be persuaded to up the rating.
Sat on the patio next to the fire. Wonderful date night. Get the scallops!
I do not consider myself a foodie, just someone who likes great foods, service and ambiance.
The rooftop bar has the best view in Santa Fe and is good food and eats. Service was ok.
The restaurant was great. Outstanding service, great food and drink, and surprisingly nice ambiance.
The food was delicious and the service was friendly and professional.
We were lured in by the awards but found disappointment. The ravioli was chewy with tough Kale and dry buffalo, the enchiladas were flavorless and the desert brioche was oddly mushy. The popcorn ice cream was a bright spot. We ended up with our most expensive meal in Santa Fe and Taos and our most disappointing one.
A very unusual place with interesting and unique dishes. Try the O'Keefe five-course dinner. What a delight!
Food wad good, but service was so disorganized we had to flag a passing manager to please bring our cocktsils and wine sitting on the bar for 10 minutes, though later arrivsls were already served. We order two entrees and like to split a salad. Our waitress neglected to warn us that our vertical burrata salad required surgical skill to divide, but I was able to then
scoop it onto our bread plates. Our two entrees were fine, but when our ordered dessert never came, we paid the bill and started to keave when another (think 5 different people waited on us)) fellow came by with our dessert, which we declined. A different evening for us, So recently
very spoiled by the excellent service at Sazon and L’Olivier. Best to wait until they get organized!
Food was very good. Service was poor. Forty five minutes after sitting down we still didn’t have appetizers or drinks. Waitress rarely showed up. Manager apologized but didn’t offer to comp anything. Probably won’t be back.
Amazing menu and diverse choices make for a true Northern New Mexico culinary journey. Unfortunately the table service is not quite up to the pace !
We had a great Dinner at Eloisa. Fantastic Food, Ambiance and Service. I definitely recommend Eloisa.
