Ordered a burger with no onions. Got it loaded with onions. No server around so someone else had to help. They remade the burger but you could tell it was rushed and not made well..cook of meat was way off, bun was falling apart, etc. $18 burger that I ate a quarter of. My friends $14 avocado toast was sloppy and so salty she had to force herself to eat it.
First time and disappointed.

For the prices paid the food was not at that level. My $59 branzino was good but the potatoes were cold and under cooked. My wife’s lamb shank had to be sent back due to cool temperature in the middle.

Service is slow everywhere due to short staffing but they did a great job.
Food was nothing special at a very exclusive price…loved the mussels
I still prefer the old menu which was excellent. Glad we tried it but unlikely we would return

We had no specific preference of the seating arrangement. Therefore, They did not seat us in the main dining room, but rather what used to be called the Cantina. I think he said it was called Club Gato. The tables were not close together, which I thought was really good, since we are still in the pandemic. There was music in the background, but it wasn’t loud. Miguel did an excellent job serving, and the food was exceptionally good. We really enjoyed our Thanksgiving meal.

We had a great time at La Casa Sena for Thanksgiving. We had drinks in the bar beforehand. Nice ambiance, although the Christmas music was a bit loud.
The traditional turkey dinner was wonderful. Definitely beats roasting a turkey at home. The sides were very good as well.
All in all a wonderful experience.

During the Thanksgiving week my wife and I visited family members in Santa Fe. Made reservations at a number of resturants and La Casa was by far the best.

We loved the table in front of the fireplace on a cool evening. The elk shank was tender and not over seasoned. The lamb pappardelle was nicely seasoned with cinnamon and pleasantly piquant. Attentive service by Ben.

In our opinion this restaurant is a must. The food presentation and quality were outstanding. Highly suggest the old fashion cocktail (not on menu yet was terrific), beet and burrata salad, and the lamp shank. Wow! Service was good but missed a few finer details such as we should not need to use our salad fork for eating our entree but that will not stop us from returning.

1st the patio is beautiful but not enough heaters on cold nights.

Food was ok the halibut I had really had no flavor.
Had to ask for bread,they forgot it.
Food I would rate between 2-3 stars.
I all honesty I would NOT recommend to a friend.

Over-all we were not pleased. The restaurant was under-staffed and that was reflected in the level of service. Food was good, however they could not serve coffee and/or tea as they said they had no hot water for this purpose (coffee/tea)!! We thought this very odd and wished we had not ordered dessert. Also we found the prices very high, even by Santa Fe standards.

Delightful garden setting. Delicious Greek food. Surrounded by one of the oldest houses in Santa Fe. If you intend to be a regular, the wine club is the way to go, which gives one access to the wine at retail prices in the restaurant and a 15% discount on retail purchases.

We were in a back room that was not as nice as the main restaurant and it was a bit loud (or the tables next to us were just loud). The food was delicious. I had the rack of lamb and my husband had the duck. (He was glad the sauce came on the side as he found it too sweet.) The service was good. It took a while for the sommelier to come but she was extremely knowledgeable and helpful when she arrived.

The food was delicious, the plating was beautiful, the staff very nice. But we ordered a salad, 2 appetizers and an entre all to share and it all came to the table at the same time. Not a huge deal, but guess we should have specified we wanted it in courses. The only other criticism I have is that there seemed to be too many chairs and tables for the space, was hard to walk around the tables to get out.

We had the mussels with chorizo and the goat cheese eggrolls with apriocot & pistachios, both were yummy! The seared tuna on risotto was done perfectly.

Food was overpriced and horrible. Ahi tuna appetizer was too tough to finish. Ordered elk shank for dinner--fatty and "gamey," sent back. Stale bread. Overhead music was from a radio station (complete with DJ talking).

We’ve been living in Santa Fe for work since July. Well be sad to leave in November. This place is in the heart of the plaza. Beautiful inside and outside dining. We’ve had wonderful experiences every time we’ve dined here! Brunch, lunch and dinner have all been fabulous! The outdoor central courtyard is pet friendly so that’s a huge plus for us too! We’ve almost always made reservations because this place is always very busy. The few times we didn’t have reservations, the wait was very short. Don’t miss this place!
