SPIRITED DINING AND DRINKS IN SANTA FE

In 1882, Abraham Staab, a European immigrant who became one of Santa Fe’s most prosperous merchants, built a Victorian mansion on property that now belongs to La Posada. Abraham’s elegant wife, Julia, entertained local society and visiting dignitaries in incomparable style. Legend has it that Julia so loved her home that she has never left it.

Today, we celebrate Julia Staab as our muse and honor her name and legendary hospitality with the opening of Julia, A Spirited Restaurant & Bar. The restaurant features innovative, locally sourced dishes as well as an extensive selection of fine wines and spirits.

This was our second visit to Julia during Santa Fe Restaurant Week. Our experience last year was very good. This year was very disappointing. The appetizers were okay, but not great. The entrees were horrendous. Both the fish and the beef were overcooked and there was nothing special about the way either was plated. The dessert selection was okay, but also not great. The sole redeeming quality was the service, which was excellent.

we made a dinner of sharing the “small plates” and found everything to be utterly delicious.

Visiting Santa Fe. We wanted to get away for a quiet lunch and some great food. Although Julia was a bit of a walk it was well worth it. The food was great. Service could have been a bit more attentive. Overall a great experience. Will dine there again....

We have eaten here a number of times... very nice. Then there was this past week. Took a dear friend for a special dinner. Special it was. Ordered a variety of things, but for myself, octopus followed by mussels was the fare. After a longgg wait the octopus arrived, lots of sauce, hard to fine the meal.... then the mussels finally arrived.... strange they should be cool.. never had them this way. Bread? No bread! My friend's noted similar. What are mussels without bread? We asked and after a long struggle between the refrigerator and oven a very small corn bread in a very hot iron pan arrived. That's were the heat for the mussels went. Clever! And the poor server who tried so hard, but it seemed like his first night and he was actually shaking as he bravely carried out the food.

Normally we love this place but with only 3 other tables occupied, it seems word had quietly slipped out and we were not on the informed list. Julia... get it together. raise the kitchen's standards by first advising them there are standards in Santa Fe... train the poor server and give him a chance to learn his trade before being subjected to the real thing.. and for God's sake
serve a proper bread with (warm) sea food..... The legislature is in town. Where is your pride?

The wait staff was very attentive and provided great service. The waiter made several suggestions and we each had his suggestions. The red chili pork short rib was excellent. The red chili sauce was perfect and the meat fell off the rib bone. The meat was tender and tasted great. The steak was prepared as requested and was tender. The salmon was also excellent.

Out of first choice; one tamale was great but the second one couldn’t be cut into it was so hard. They brought another tamale and it was as fabulous as the first one.

Food was mediocre- service was very poor- waiter did not even check on us to see if we liked our food- my wife had an issue with her meal and we had to wait almost 20 minutes for the waiter to come to speak with us.
