    Casa Sena is always a lovely spot, with its quiet nooks and warm fireplaces. The staff are professional and friendly. The wine list is beautifully curated, as are the cocktails. The new menu is terrific, striking a balance between the Greek influences with the return of classics like elk tenderloin. We had a lovely evening with friends, and lots of happy surprises at new flavors.

    Decided to celebrate a birthday at La Casa Sena and it did not disappoint. Everything was fantastic. Drinks and food were amazing and delicious. Service was absolutely great and the employees know what they’re doing. I will be returning again soon.

    Fabulous food and excellent service. Unfortunately our table was squeezed against a pillar and directly adjacent to the path of busy servers running back and forth looking and sounding very harried. Their stress was palpable and negatively affected the ambience. The food however, and simple decor with blue highlights was exceptional.

    This was my best experience so far in Santa Fe. As a single person, many establishments of the same caliber had only offered bar seating, but Casa Sena provided a welcoming atmosphere right by a warm fire. The trout was absolutely delish and paired with very attentive service made for a great night. Definitely recommending it to my DC friends.

    Ha a Wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. I didn’t give it 5 stars because: The floor in the old section of the restaurant bounced with every footstep the waitstaff took — very annoying— next time I’ll ensure I’m seated in a different room; the glazed carrots were overcooked; and, the ladies room was messy. These are minor concerns but I expect a lot for my money. The ambiance was lovely, our waiter, Migue, was wonderful, not noisy, and the food was excellent (except the carrots). Will definitely return for another great meal.

    I really enjoyed my Thanksgiving meal. I liked the choices for the meal. I loved my beet salad and I loved the turkey and all the sides. Thank you so much for not putting chorizo in the stuffing. I liked the dessert but it was meh. I had the pudding with orange. I wish it had been lighter in texture, a little more like flan. I brought a friend with me and he seemed to really enjoy his elk dish. I found the food well cooked and the taste delicious. The location has lots of ambiance. I would highly recommend La Casa Sena.

    Casa Sena was a fantastic new discovery for us; we've been visiting Santa Fe for decades, but had not been there since the pandemic. The servers were wonderful, the food choices very unique in our experience (we LOVED the filo-based small plates and desserts), and it was a Wednesday and the Robert Fox Trio was fabulous.

    Our favorite spot to dine when in Santa Fe. The food is always perfection, service is fabulous and ambience is just right — wood fire in the fireplace, not too noisy, and live jazz from the bar wafting into the dining areas if you time your visit well. I especially love the availability of vegan options and allergy-friendly accommodations. We’ll be back!

    Stu the manager was very attentive. The kitchen was able to work with my garlic allergy. The newer menu is somewhat limited and somewhat overpriced. Considering it was a Saturday night we thought they were not as busy as we expected.

    It was a pleasant enough meal but the lack of attention detracted from the food. After a good welcome by our waiter thins were bit off. food did not come out in the order we requested, we asked for additional plates that never arrived and no one checked back on either request.

    By far the best dinner I have had in years. Better, actually, than anything I've had at The Compound or Geronimo's. We ate in a beautiful dining room with a big wood fire roaring. There were 3 of us at a lovely corner table with a circular velvet banquette. Two of us sat on that, and the third in a chair across from us. This restaurant is an experience of authentic old Santa Fe that takes you back in time. We eat here in the warm months outside on the beautiful, cottonwood shaded patio. But eating in the dining room on a cold night was a special treat. The service was extraordinarily attentive, but never intrusive. The food was amazingly good- I had duck breast, my husband had elk tenderloin, and our friend had sea bass. We had 2 different salads- each one artful, healthful, colorful, and delicious. I hope you'll be able to experience it!

    I was disappointed in the changes that have taken place in the menu and prices since I last visited a year ago. Too much emphasis on presentation rather than taste, i thought. The answer to the next question would depend upon what my friend was looking for.

    The first course was fried green tomatoes and oysters but had only one oyster for $19. We were going to split which they wanted to charge an extra $4 for but would not bring an extra plate. Main course was elk was was great.

    Great ambience and wonderful food. We had the elk tenderloin and ahi tuna, both of which were cooked to perfection. I thought the cocktails were a little overpriced but I still ordered one and it was delicious 🤤 I would recommend for a special occasion dinner for sure or a summer lunch in the courtyard.
