This is a great restaurant in a great setting with service to match. Did I mention, the food is great too. We will definitely return again. The views and the walk to to the front door from the parking was serene and what a Japanese garden should be.

One of our favorite spots in Santa Fe. Fabulous and unique Japanese cuisine, with an awesome sake and beer list.

Angelo our waiter was awesome in patiently explaining the menu items. I took my wife out lunch for her birthday. We recommend the tonkotsu ramen noodles which had an excellent bone broth and the nami burger & furikake fries. We both had the blondie sundae for dessert. This dessert was tasty, but unfortunately very small. The seating personnel Lisette and Samantha were very friendly and helpful, especially during a very busy lunch crowd. The window view was beautiful. This place isn’t very handicap accessible, although you can get a parking lot shuttle to and from the restaurant. Make sure to arrive early to find parking, because it’s kinda limited. They need to make more parking spaces. After lunch we went to the spa nearby on the grounds - it was excellent as well.

Grilled avocado and roasted Brussel sprouts were outstanding!! I have never had so many green tea options! Sake options! Beer options! Parking is limited and we had to hike to the restaurant. However, there is shuttle service available from the spa parking to restaurant - for those in the know (now, you too are in the know!). Restaurant was busy, which may have been why our waitress was difficult to find, slow to service, and made a mistake on our bill. Otherwise, an excellent restaurant worth the drive.

We had a wonderful sake flight and delicious bento boxes before a glorious soak in the hot tubs. I highly recommend. Only a short drive from Santa Fe and well worth it!

Izanami has never let us down. Birthdays, date night, family gatherings, Valentines Day . . . it all works. The Sake offerings are world class, the food is delicious, and the service is impeccable, the environment is gorgeous. It is our go-to for out-of-town guests who are adventurous foodies as it showcases our beautiful mountains and is one of the best restaurants in Santa Fe.

It’s a really nice environment with very friendly staff. But they definitely capitalize on the location by charging high for low quality food. There is very little on the plate. We got short ribs and one two of them didn’t even really have any meat on the them, and there are only four. The plate doesn’t come with much else. The ramen had little to no flavor. The tea was good.

I’ve dined at Izanami on several occasions and this was the first disappointing experience. A restaurant sets the tone from the moment a diner arrives, which is why my friends and I always make advance reservations via Open Table and request a corner booth or table - I’m at an age where I know what I like based on many years of dining out. So, when my group of 3 was informed by the hostess upon arrival that our request for a booth was not possible because “booths are set aside for parties of 4”, I was disappointed. But my disappointment turned to anger when a couple arriving just after us - without a reservation - asked for a booth and got one (instead of a center floor table near where we were seated). Did my group get an inferior table because I’m an older woman and the person requesting a booth right after me was a younger man? No matter the reason, the difference in how our requests were handled by the front of house staff was not OK and it annoyed everyone in my group. The table service was courteous and food was good, but our seating issue was a negative I’ll not soon forget.

We thought Izanami was an incredible dining experience in a beautiful setting. However the only downside was the service. In particular, our server was not friendly at all, and left us alone for long periods of time when we wanted to order something. Our water was never refilled, and it took a long time for plates to be cleared. Otherwise, the food was great and we enjoyed our evening.

We loved every aspect of our dinner. Our server was beyond generous, knowledgeable and impossibly gracious. The meal was amazing but the service made it memorable. Oh, and the bathrooms.

I normally don’t like to sit at the bar, but we sat at at the high tops and , Michael, our ‘Sake Master’ took care of our sake flights and the food. We had a wonderful, personalized experience with Michael and the food. Sake selections were excellent and diverse. Food selections was perfect for two women.
