Estevan Restauranté is a fine dining establishment based around a relaxed New Mexican atmosphere. All of our produce is sourced daily from the Santa Fe Farmer’s Market with any poultry, meat, or fish brought in from free roaming, grass fed, or wild caught farms. Our menu, tailored made by Executive Chef Estevan Garcia, is traditional Northern New Mexican cuisine tastefully altered with a French twist, honoring tradition while embracing innovation.
Seasonal greens sourced from the Farmers Market and tossed in a vinaigrette dressing
Made with Farmer's Market goats milk
Anaheim Green Chile filled with mushroom duxelle and served with a garlic pinto-bean demi-glace
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.
The food and service was excellent. Great location and ambience.
Sweet cozy little space with excellent cuisine. Our server Sean was so kind and made us feel very special.
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.
Overall great experience and delicious food!
Best meal I have had in a long time ! Went with my family and thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. Loved the decor and atmosphere and the service was great. Would highly recommend !
Best food with New Mexican twist and delicious desserts and house margaritas. Best place to eat on the plaza.
We sat at the bar and our server could not have been better. The food was great but the service was the best. We will recommend Estevan and look forward to returning when next in Santa Fe.
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.
A hidden jewel of a restaurant. Been visiting Santa Fe for years a few times a year but just discovered Estevan. Small, quaint with great continental cuisine.
What a memorable Christmas dinner with chef Estevan and his exceptional staff. Will make this a family tradition.
The most wonderful setting for a glorious Christmas meal!! The ambiance, the food, the music, the staff, the decorations: top mark's! Could not have been improved.
Seated on arrival. Great fixe prize memo options and each prepared superbly. As expected a bit pricy but well worth the expense. If I lived in Santa Fe, would be a regular customer.
The food was outstanding and the service was great. The chef/owner stopped by our table to make sure everything was perfect. I would highly recommend dining at Estevan!
Excellent every time we eat there. A must if you are in Santa Fe. Great variety of entrees and all delicious!
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!
Would def recommend! Attention to detail, friendly and efficient service.
We enjoyed our meal very much. Our waiter was attentive and helpful with advice about our entrees & wine. I feel that the entrees were a little pricey but the food was very good.
Wonderful. Nice plates, great red chili, fantastic service. Had a cozy romantic feel with the fire. Not rushed and timing was perfect with servers and entree’s. Overall a very nice place to do e.
The upstairs restaurant is cozy. The food was excellent and the almond cake dessert was perfect- not too heavy after the meal. Staff is attentive and friendly.
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.
The food, ambience, and service were all wonderful, BUT none of the handsome servers were wearing a mask.
What a lovely place to relax after a day of walking and “museum-ing” in Santa Fe! Food was delicious, service exceptional, wine tasty, and a cozy spot to enjoy everything. Thank you for a perfect meal.
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!
Flavorful! Just wonderful meal and superb service!
Food was very good and service was extraordinary.
Despite an indoor mask mandate and a high covid case rate in the state, not a single staff member had a mask on. Know before you go.
This intimate, upstairs restaurant is well appointed and very inviting. The food selections were varied and the whitefish entree was excellent. Service was friendly and efficient and prices were fair. We will go back soon and we highly recommend this restaurant.
We had Thanksgiving dinner and it was excellent. The plates are beautifully prepared and the wait staff was wonderful
We were at Estevan for Thanksgiving dinner. It was a good prix fixe menu, everything that we had was well prepared with very fresh ingredients. The service was friendly and attentive, the atmosphere attractive and festive. Made the holiday for us.
Fantastic service. Friendly staff and wonderful food in a beautifully decorated restaurant room. We had the time of our lives.
Best Thanksgiving dinner! We had plans to go out of town for thanksgiving but I became ill. So ordered the dinner to go as we couldn’t make it to restaurant. 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.
Great restaurant with unique takes on Mexican favorites. Pleasant experience with wonderful ambiance.
Lovely atmosphere, warm and knowledgeable waiter. Bummer that they do t have margaritas (waiting for liquor license.). And portions very small.
Food was excellent and we really enjoyed the ambiance
