    Although we had a confirmed reservation, we had a 45 minute wait! We've been visiting this Resturant for 13 years, this was our first visit in the post Covid environment, and overall very disappointed. The menu structure was difficult to understand to order a nice paced eating experience. The main couse plates of Mediterranean sea bass and pork Ossobuco were disappointments.

    It rained so they closed off all outdoor dining. We were able to find a table under the bar gazebo and the staff too great care of us. The crab cakes were superb as was the selection of wines by the glass.

    Very positive, except that the mussel dish with chorizo was far too spicy and I’m a local who eats chile. Cooling it down a little might be a good idea.

    Appetizers were great. Entrees were inedible. We ordered dessert, took a long time for them to come and manager said we would not be charged. We were charged for them plus $6 for gluten free bread which wasn’t disclosed when we ordered it. It has always been one of our favorites!

    The food is very good. Excellent wine list and good choices of wines by the glass. Weather permitting, dining in the courtyard is a MUST! The ambience in the courtyard is world-class. Also dining outdoors keeps the noise level much quieter. La Casa Sena is always on our restaurant list when we visit Santa Fe.

    Our lunch was very good. We had not been to Lacasa Sena , since before Covid. But it was excellent as we had remembered. Paul was our waiter he was really great. The food was great. We always love dining on the patio. Although, The parking situation was not good. I hope they can fix that. The parking lot was blocked off, So we had to park two blocks away. And then as we were walking up to the restaurant the person in charge of parking told us it was restaurant only parking. But it was blocked off there is no way to tell him we were there for the restaurant. It turns out we could’ve parked in the parking lot but we could not get to the parking lot to tell him we were there for the restaurant. This needs to be corrected.

    Waiter was very good. There were no large plates in the menu that appealed to us. The small plates and desert we had were very good as was our waiter. But the person who cleared our dessert plates set someone else’s dirty dishes down on our table and then proceeded to stack the plates up on our table! Not good 🤯

    Who goes to Santa Fe for seafood? Half the menu was from the sea, then you’re choices are game, red meat, and pork. We chose the one veggie meal, which we never do, of mushroom croquettes , soft mounds and very rich, in pea purée. Very costly for what you get. The patio is beautiful as always, but we’re not going back. I’m allergic to seafood, too. Other places have a better variety for the price.

    Overall the restaurant is appealing. The service was ok as our main waiter could have been more attentive once the food came out. As far as the food., it’s not as good as it used to be. Friends had trout and tuna. They said it was ok. The vegan selections-bravo they have some-are mixed. The stuffed zucchini was inedible. Undercooked and bland. The croquettes better. The hummus plate delicious.

    Was raining so had to sit in the Jazz bar. Way too loud. Service was horrible. It took almost an hour to get our food. Drinks extremely slow to come out. Water glasses not filled and we had to go to the bar to request our check as our waiter never came by for about 25 minutes. We usually love this place. Sitting in the outdoor patio is amazing. So dissatisfied with this experience.

    I ordered the beef tenderloin medium and it came out very rare. The waitress never came but to check on us after our food was brought out. We never got offered refills on our cocktails or if we want wine with dinner. I expected much better service for the price.

    La Casa Sena had upped their game. The beautiful patio is still an amazing place to dine. I HOPE they will find a way to keep out open this fall and winter. The food is just amazing here. I had the Canard, and it was spectacular. We have been eating here for years, off and on. We will be more ON than OFF now!
