Dinner at Estevan was a wonderful experience. We dined on their 2nd floor patio which was a little tight but very nice with no real issues with street noise. Our server, Truit, was spectacularly good. He knew his food and wine very well and was able to make some great suggestions. The food was also spectacular. I had Estevan’s special enchiladas and I can’t wait to try them again.

Great service and selection of entrees (especially for carnivores), cozy ambiance and comfortable noise level. Waiter was very accommodating when we wanted to split an entrée so we could have an appetizer, have salad and dessert; we got to try Taos Ice Cream Co ice cream. Just off the Santa Fe Plaza. This was my second visit and I thoroughly enjoyed both meals.

Food was delicious! Excellent! Lovely seating area on the patio outside. I’d highly recommend the small outside patio as the inside wasn’t the same ambiance. Great attentive service and a visit by the chef. We’ll definitely be back!

This is an easy one. There is no liquor so they offer a wine margarita. Do not bother.
The chips and salsa were quite good. The Posole was good but not great. The tomatoes in the tomato salad were too ripe and mushy. The guacamole was simply boring with pasty avocado, mushy tomato and tasteless corn. The ravioli was so rubbery that I only ate 1/2 of one (of 3). A nice waitress asked if I liked it and I said no that it was rubbery. The owner and executive chef, Esteban Garcia, was busy talking to people at the next time, heard what I said and went back to the kitchen. However, as we walked right by him to leave, still hungry, he did not say a word.
A bad night in the kitchen is forgivable but an uncaring owner/chef is unforgivable.
This was the single worst dining experience I have ever had in Santa Fe!

One can not say enough good things about Estevan and his wonderful restaurant. A friendly, professional staff and a real dedication to using healthy local ingredients to create memorable meals is "business as usual here." We are locals and we've given up on virtually every other restaurant in town. It's more fun to come here, and the food is so much better. Just the best!!!!

Estevan is a hidden treasure: warm atmosphere, lovingly prepared food, and wonderful service right in the heart of old Santa Fe. Perhaps because there is a bar downstairs, the restaurant only features wine and beer: in our cocktail-obsessed era, this is a bit of a drawback, but the wine list is interesting and diverse. All in all, a great value and a lovely evening!

The restaurant serves a small platter of upscale chips and salsa which is just the right size. My date had the trout and I had the pasta with the pork shoulder. We split an almond cake with creme anglaise. We each had a glass of excellent wine. Service professional and friendly. Food was excellent. Nice decor on second floor of a hotel.

Havent been to Estevans in a while and was very happy that the quality of the ingredients and the deliciousness of the courses hasn’t dropped one bit. Good as ever! The best part was that the chef personally came to our table to greet us and ask us how our meal was. Great warm personality! Best meal in Santa Fe!

While there are a lot of options in Old Santa Fe, we really enjoyed the dinner here in the Chimaya Hotel. The service and food were great and the setting just wonderful. There were entrees under $20 on the menu but you can also order up something expensive and unique too. There was a pretty nice mix of Southwest and European possibilities to choose from. Each of the three of us thought our dish was the best!!!

Really enjoyed our dinner at Estevan. The patio/balcony table was really nicely shaded and because it was not at the street level, still quiet despite being in the middle of things. But the better part was the meal. The menu was adequately varied, and the selections offered good choices. The individual dishes we chose were excellent quality, appropriate quantity, and very satisfying. We really liked the fact that the food was honest and not overly pretentious, which seems to be a trend these days. Great meal.

We were two couples in NM for the first time to celebrate my 40th birthday. A highlight of the trip was FOOD. We had reservations at amazing places for every night of our trip. And Santa Fe did not disappoint. But amongst all the great food we had, Estevan stood out for all of us.

The space was simple and beautiful inside. Great woodwork throughout. It's small and cozy and not too loud. The food is southwestern and it was arguably the best southwestern food we all had on our trip.

The staff was all on point. We were seated immediately by a lovely host. We were taken care of by our waiter and the other staff members. Estevan (the executive chef and owner) came by to see how our food was and chat for a minute. Empty plates were quickly cleared. Each of us loved our meals and the desert was amazing.
