This place is mid-level quality for Santa Fe. Spend your money elsewhere like Coyote Cafe or Market Steer Steakhouse where you will get a much better meal. Meal with tip near $200.00 and not worth it!

Waiter was rude and many have attitudes.

Won’t be back.

I booked this reservation a few weeks in advance. When we arrived we were greeted by a sign stating the restaurant would be closed from January 2 to 11. We attempted to make reservations elsewhere thru Open Table but of course we could not because of the previous reservation at this restaurant.
Thanks for screwing up our Anniversary Dinner.

Small cozy warm restaurant with excellent service and exquisite meal . The. Restaurant has a warm fireplace and is decorated in southwest style. The cuisine is French southwest fusion . The chef is very personable and talked to us about his French training . We had trout and chard both of which were outrageous . Couldn’t have been better : never rushed always with perfect courteous service . Highly recommended.

Excellent food. Felt rushed but it was New Year's Eve after all. Owner killed the vibe by sitting at a table in the middle of the restaurant alone watching everyone and his staff. Uncomfortable.

Beautiful setting, good dinner menu, excellent wine selection. Staff should be more knowledgeable about wine. Also, wished side cheese enchilada was served alongside ribeye steak, not a separate plate. Expensive, festive, and great for a special occasion.

The space is small but well designed with a great fireplace to help with the ambience. We came early in the evening and it was nice and quiet but as the evening went on and the tables filled up it did get quite noisy. The service was superb. Wait staff was so attentive. The food was very well presented and quite delicious. Overall I think this restaurant is one of the best.

Delicious New Mexican cuisine in a very cozy location. Lovely fireplace ambience. We have a four year old who chatted up the chef and his dinner partner all night and they were so kind to him. They played along with his stories and offered him a Christmas ornament as a keepsake. Very kind and friendly people.

Chef Estevan never disappoints! We shared the arugula salad with roasted almonds and green apples. My husband had a trout filet that was basically a full fish and I had the quail in a delicious Demi glaze. The goat milk flan was AMAZING! Love this place!

The quality and amount of food does not match the price. $20 for two small corn tortillas with very little cheese and bland enchilada sauce was a joke, especially when you're in the land of the red chile and a great food scene. My husband's pork loin dish was equally underwhelming. Our servers were very nice and attentive though.

We were in Santa Fe to buy a house and tried out Estevans which was near our hotel. We were very pleased with the menu selections. We shared a great appetizer and each of liked our entrees and deserts. I found one of our favorite Ribera del Duero wines for the meal. Ambience was cozy supported by a crackling fire. When we make the move to Santa Fe, Estevan’s will be a favorite.

A lovely restaurant tucked upstairs in a building in the Plaza area, Estevan soothes diners with the sound of a crackling fireplace and charming music. Add to all of this a top-notch restaurant staff and meals coked to perfection. Do yourself a favor and eat here!

I cannot tell you how wonderful it was in every detail. And portions were extremely generous. Thank you Estevan for making our Thanksgiving meal wonderful.
