I would have thought the service would have been more enthusiastic and speedy. I also wish the menu had been more extensive. HOWEVER, everything was delicious, including the drinks, and they were beautiful. It is such a lovely setting for a meal. The food we did order was delicious and beautiful. The pasta carbonara is REAL. I hope this business survives COVID.

Very disappointed that after years of a fabulous menu with lots of patron favorites that the menu has entirely changed & is now Mediterranean food & no longer Mexican & American. The patio is still fabulous & the only reason I would go back. The menu is awful.

Wonderful night! It was so nice to see one of our favorite restaurants in Santa Fe reopened. The garden was, as it always was, delightful. New menu with a lot of international fare. I got the red trout which was SUPERB! Beautifully presented! Very disappointed that my favorite drink, the Ginger Rogers, was no longer being offered. I heard another diner ask for the same. If they get that back, perfection will be achieved!!!!!! So great to have a sane, almost normal night in all this Corona craziness. Thank you, folks, for a delightful evening!

Food was great but our server was slow and did not check on us very often. The patio was nice but our table was a "wobbler" and even the food and drinks were amazing the table made the experience a bummer.

Lovely, traditional patio with great food and cocktails a short walk from the plaza in Santa Fe. Reminiscent of the way things use to be prior to the pandemic. Great care taken with social distancing and disinfecting. Viva la Santa Fe! Viva!

So happy they reopened! We really missed Casa Sena while they were closed. At first I was dismayed at looking changed menu. However, we were pleasantly surprised and very pleased with our meal.... The chef has outdone himself. As always the wait staff were wonderful... It's our favorite place for a special experience. You cannot ever go wrong with Casa Sena. We will be back again and again.

I would have give all 5 stars except the bathroom was gross. The food was excellent and the setting was very nice. Dirty bathrooms give me a problem though. I expect a place like Casa Sean to check frequently and have spotless bathrooms. A gross bathroom is not part of the experience you are paying for.

La Casa Sena has always been one of Santa Fe's best restaurants for many years. The food at my last meal was very very good. They had two menus - normal and restaurant week. Both menus were very well curated with a wide variety of plates that were excellent combinations. There were 2 of us eating and all 7 courses between us were very good. The wine list is one of the very best in town. I have been eating there for over 20 years. I always try to stop in when I am in town for a few lunches and dinners.

We went here for Restaurant Week. Although it is a go to place during the summer patio months for lunches with friends and guests, I hadn't tired this for dinner. The meal was fabulous! Osso Buco was better than I've had in Italy! Fell right off the bone. They had a great selection of wine they offered at their club prices fro Restaurant Week so we took advantage and had a bottle. Appetizers were great as was the dessert. I am going to make this a regular dinner spot. The service was impeccable! Our waiter was knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Atmosphere was also wonderful, though no fire in the fireplace on the chilly night we visited. That was the ONLY negative, however. I highly recommend Casa Sena!

Granted it was a Monday nite, restaurant week but no excuse for dry ossobucco and pasty pasta. One scallop appetizer, ridiculous. Sorbet delicious. $130 for poor food, mediocre service...no bargain. Lunches anytime are great.

This was our first experience at Casa Sena. Walking up the building was unassuming but upon entering the ambiance was very nice. We were there during restaurant week so they offered a prix fixe menu. There were 2 of us with food allergies in the group and they were very accommodating. The scallop appetizer was wonderful! Perfectly cooked with a light sauce that complemented the creaminess of the scallop. I got the trout as my entree and the fish was cooked well. The sauce was good but wasn’t anything outstanding. There was nothing wrong but the dish just didn’t stand out to me. The tartine dessert was delightful! Light with wonderful flavors and fresh berries to complement. Overall the food was delicious, ambiance was nice and service was outstanding.

The waiter appeared much too busy to provide good service. Would occasionally “check in”. Food was very disappointing. Ate here last year and food not as good. Waiter appeared not interested in our reaction to food. Will not return. But wonderful ambiance if in front room with fireplace

Outstanding food (ruby trout and beef tenderloin) and wine list. Ambience is classic Santa Fe, great for quiet conversation. Our waiter was a little supercilious, very atypical for the waitstaff the multiple other times we’ve visited.

La Casa Sena, a mainstay of ours whenever we are in Santa Fe, was perfect for a dinner with the two guests from home who joined us for the weekend of 2/20-23. As always, the presentation was spectacular, the service was impeccable, and the food was delicious. Two of our party had elk and two had ruby trout. Both dishes were wonderful. It was a lovely evening. Thanks, La Casa Sena!

Burger was on the small side for $18 and slightly overdone. Green Chile’s we’re almost tasteless. Extremely disappointing burger esp for the ridiculous price.
