    Locals dining out. The folks are 90 yo so the elevator was helpful. Small cozy dining room, has additional balcony and indoors Fireplace. Dinners were grilled Char, sirloin of Lamb, chicken paillard & pan seared trout. All excellent, tender, with appropriate tasty searing. Arugula salad & vegetables were so fresh. Dessert: lava cake & almond tort. Lovely Rosé wine. And the treat: Chef Garcia spent some time to sit and talk with us. La soirée Parfaite!!

    Outdoor chairs were very uncomfortable. Quality of food was below average, meat lacked flavor and seasoning, no depth to flavors. Lamb shank stew was insipid, came in a dilute broth. At any price, would not return. At their prices it was really terrible. Chef came around to greet customers, should have spent his time in the kitchen.

    After numerous visits to Santa Fe and dining at many of its notable restaurants, we discovered Estevan, a delightful addition to Santa Fe's culinary scene. Most restaurants in Santa Fe have a common set of southwestern ingredients and offerings, but Chef Estevan Garcia has built upon those ingredients providing lighter, tastier variant that crosses the spectrum between fine French cuisine and Santa Fe tastes. The restaurant is small; the upstairs, inside dining room is quiet and welcoming; the wine list is creative and not "snobby", with wines from many regions that span the price spectrum. We'll certainly return and will choose this as our first place to dine on our next trip to Santa Fe.

    When you walk into a restaurant and see the chef sitting at a table, sampling the food and giving instructions to the staff you know you have found a place with food and experience at its heart. That was our experience at Estevan. The only complaint I would present- and one that the restaurant can do nothing about- is that it is located directly over a very lively bar and patio. The noise was distracting from Estevan's vibe.

    I feel a bit confused by our experience. The food was elevated but in a late 80s or early 90s sense, which could have been great but also — just not sure, maybe the items have stayed too steady for all of those years and lost some spirit? I felt happy to eat each thing and then kind of — was that it? about each also. There were some maybe famous diners at the same time and the chef and others seemed very drawn in that direction, so with all of the attention there, I didn’t get my green tea, for example, with my goat milk crème brûlée—which by the way was the definite highlight of the meal, by a mile, really good. But not as good as it would have been with my tea, which sounds petty but when you’re in a fancy spot, and said spot is pretty slow actually, you kind of expect or hope the things you order show up. But the experience was totally fine.

    We went with friends from out of town. The table on the deck was great. The service was outstanding and the food was divine. The owner, Estevan, s-ent some time talking with us and we thoroughly enjoyed out dinner. The salmon special was perfectly cooked and accompanied with fresh farmer’s-market veggies. We also enjoyed the arugula salad and the tomato salad. Everything was really good. You will not be disappointed. This is a gem in Santa Fe.

    The quail and the Taos Cow Ice Cream were excellent. The sides were good but not inspiring. This was a "good" restaurant for us. We went because we were staying at the hotel and because they advertised that most of the food was local, which is important to us. For that, and the superb grill of the quail and the amazing, fresh, unadulterated, pure and excellent ice cream, I gave them a 4 rating. So, in other words, the quality of the food was supreme. The execution outside the mentioned above, was good, not spectacular. The side dishes were surprisingly uncreative (same with every dish). Yes, I would go back due to the quality of the food but I would not expect a "great" meal. But, then again, I am pretty particular and picky.

Chef Estevan is there over seeing every plate and experience. If you’re looking for a wonderful evening with a Chef to come by and spend time with you who created the beautiful menu this is the place!!

    The restaurant is very cozy and nice atmosphere. We enjoyed our entrees but the appetizers and salads were way overpriced. A $17 salad that had maybe 3/4 c of lettuce with dressing and one fig cut in half was a little ridiculous. The ravioli for $16 was barely enough to taste and guacamole was only 1/2 c. Very pricey!

    I had dinner here a week ago with a friend. We both loved it! Our waiter was so nice and respectful. The food was wonderful! I had lamb with red chili sauce and it was delicious and tender. The balcony is delightful, we feel like we found a hidden treasure in Santa Fe. Don't know why we never tried this place before. The inside is cozy and charming and we will be back this fall and winter for cozy dinners. Disregard all negative reviews here! We are so glad we found it and will recommend it to friends.

    Estevan is hands down one of Sant Fes best chefs. Although full bar would be appreciated that’s no reason to shy away from the hard stuff for a night to enjoy these delightful decadent creative dishes. Carne adovada ravioli and warm cabbage salad are excellent!
