Meal was good but Italian is not their specialty naturally . My only complaint is it’s Covid and the patio was lovely but it was a chilly night .abs they did not have indoors happening . They sat us indoors and they could have had the ambience set up. No silverware , fire , music, sound . Not the usual La Casa Sena by far ..

Beautiful setting. The food was incredible. Our server was working hard, but it seemed the kitchen was very challenged. One of our two entrees was served to us by accident. It was meant for another table, but it was what we ordered. Ten minutes later, both entrees showed up. There was confusion. The scallop entree was served with a different side than the description. The right side was served 10-minutes later. We ordered an appetizer that came with pita, but only 6 small pieces came with a rather large assortment of Mediterranean hummus and the like. We asked for additional pita and found out when the bill was delivered that we were charged for it. Overall, a great experience, but the level of service would make us think twice about returning.

The service was slow. We were seated for 15 minutes before we placed a drink order. Food was fine, but way overpriced. Beautiful setting, but we weren't overly impressed.

This has always been a favorite spot - as much for the atmosphere as for the food. It was great to see many of the same staff, and service was excellent as usual. The wait for them to reopen with their new menu has been totally worth it. While it’s more expensive, the new menu is much more unique and worth every penny. One of the best meals I’ve ever eaten!

I've been going to Casa Sena for well over 30 years being native to Santa Fe snd have always loved it until today! During the covid fiasco they changed the menu to a mediterranean vibe. Where's the red chile enchiladas that we loved so much! Not one NM dish on the menu. Too bad! Still a beautiful restaurant but a disappointment today! Probably won't be back!

La Casa Sena was fabulous from the moment we walked in. The patio is spaced so you don’t hear other table’s conversations and the small lights made it magical. The food was outstanding and service was the same, so efficient, attentive and friendly. I will always want to go there when I visit Santa Fe again.

The most beautiful patio dining in Santa Fe: lush, quiet. I ordered the beet and burrata salad and it was the most beautiful plate of food my eyes have ever beheld. My friend ordered a pizza and it never arrived and we couldn't get the waiter's attention.

This restaurant used to be one of our favorites in Santa Fe. Although this time around the food was not prepared as ordered, one plate was sent back due to hair and the other was overcooked (not an exaggeration). Would we go back, yes because the many other times we gave gone we loved it.

Delicious food. Lovely presentation. Attentive service without being hovering. Inside tables nicely spaced as was a stormy night and outdoors was not an option! All 4 of us thought the food and service was better than pre-COVID. And the wine was a good size pour! Looking forward to returning.

The food was outstanding. We enjoyed our meal on the patio, which is very safe, and very well heated. I highly recommend this restaurant. I can't wait for the Cantina to reopen so that we can dine and enjoy live music.

La Casa Sena is one of our favorite places. The food is excellent, the service is superb, and the ambiance is wonderful. Dining outdoors is such a great experience, especially right now, with the beautiful fall weather. Their Mediterranean menu, accompanied by a margarita or a fine wine, makes for an enjoyable occasion. We will come back often!

Very disappointed with the service. Wine arrived after our first course which we had ordered later. Difficult to get servers attention. Dropped dirty silverware said she would be back to clear but didn’t. Food was good but we missed some our favorite dishes.

I was so disappointed in Casa Sena. I come to Santa Fe once a year and I always look forward to Casa Sena, but they changed. No Southwestern food at all. Used to love their green chili burger and their enchiladas. The menu has Grecian good, Italian food and an assortment of other items that weren’t familiar. No one wants to order something they can’t pronounce or understand what’s in the dish.
I cancelled my other 2 reservations at Casa Sena for this reason.

Quite simply it's a beautiful place to eat in Santa Fe. However, they changed their menu over to Greek and Turkish cuisine with a poor to average result. The former menu, and food, which was mostly Southwestern, was much better. Beautiful, but a disappointment.
