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.

From the professional yet friendly hostess who seated us to the server and the busboy, the staff made us feel at home. The Spanish tapas were authentic and delicious. Plus, the jazz duo sounded great!

We were a little skeptical when we saw this restaurant attached to the Drury Inn. However after being seated you knew this was a special spot. The decor, menu, and service was spot on. The restaurant was bustling and the staff made us feel like we were the only ones there. The food was superb and presentation was clever. The salads were all great starters, the burrata w fresh tomatoes was fresh and the cheese flavorful. For mains we enjoyed the venison (sauce was amazing), salmon, and steak. In addition to the food they had beautiful live music that truly made the night special. If I lived here I’d frequent this place often.

Our first time at Eloisa will DEFINITELY not be our last. What an incredible meal! The food was mind boggling, the service was very friendly and timely - not slow and not hurried, perfect. Eloisa usually falls below a few other well-known Santa Fe restaurants on the “best of” lists - it deserves to be at the top. Awesome.

Enticed by images of floral tortillas, our first visit to Eloisa was a dining delight. Locally and historically inspired cuisine is complemented by an impressive wine list. The waitstaff is very well trained and made our evening memorable.

This was our second visit to Eloisa. We primarily went back for the popcorn ice cream. Really, it's a real thing and quite awesome. Our entrees were grilled halibut (seasonal) and a Filet Mignon with red chili roasted potatoes. Yum! Both were prepared to perfection and we were ready for the ice cream. We were not disappointed and the manager brought us out a dessert sampler that knocked our socks off. It is now a regular stop for us.

Food was good. With so much room in the restaurant, was surprised we were sat at a table looking in to the service area. Though the food was eventually good, I had ordered a steak medium rare and it arrived well done. They did cook me a new one and provided a small soup, so I could join my wife in eating, while waiting for my new steak. New steak arrived medium rare and was delicious. Good wines, good food and they did the right thing in taking care of an issue.

Our party of four enjoyed our dinner at Eloisa. It's a pleasant room, not too noisy, and the low-ceilinged, somewhat industrial look is happily relieved by white walls and ceiling. Food reviews were mixed: one loved the smoked brisket enchiladas, while another wished there were more rice in his paella, and I found the Zuni tamal to be a little underflavored, both in the smoked trout mousse filling and the horseradish (barely detectable, and certainly without bite) cream sauce. All the salads were very good - fresh and beautiful. Service was attentive, though a little disorganized at the beginning, as two individuals came separately to tell us the specials. Value for price is not out of line with hotel restaurants in general, which always seem higher-priced. The food flavors are interesting, and I expect to be returning to Eloisa to enjoy them further.

Interesting and delicious food and desserts prepared by a chef at the top of his game. Great space for entertaining that deserves to be better known. Cleanest/freshest bathrooms on the planet. My only complaint is that the dinner portions were a bit small. Diners at this level could use an amuse bouche...a clear competitor to Charles Dale's restaurant Maize.

Best meal in our short stay in Santa Fe. Better than another HIGHLY RATED one that we had been to the night before. Mario our server was very attentive, and the wine steward was spot on with his recommendation. It was a lucky find for us since we had been at the hotel's roof top bar earlier and decided to try it.

This was our first visit to Eloise but it was so good that we went back the next night as well. When we first arrived we were put off a bit when we realized it was housed in a hotel, but the interior of the restaurant was very sleek, clean and modern. I was especially impressed by the large and open kitchen which was remarkably calm and quiet compared to other open kitchens I have observed. The menu was limited but very interesting and every dish was extremely fresh, creative and well prepared. The tortillas, the lamb chops and the paella were all extremely good. The cocktails were innovative and well made as well. I liked our young server very much. Close to a perfect score!

This was absolutely the BEST MEAL EVER! I won’t even tell you what we ordered because I am sure that everything is spectacular! We ordered small plates to start and I thought that I might not order a large plate but I did and I am so happy that I did! Shared dessert and it was so beautiful! Perfect meal and service!
