Good food. Surly, almost angry, service. Still tipped 20%...maybe they were having a really bad day.

The restaurant is located in a traditional adobe house in Santa Fe's old town district, the interior is classy. The food was ok but nothing special, besides the veggie entree (quinoa stuffed eggplant) which was really creative and well-prepared. Service was a bit disappointing - our waitress was very attentive to other tables, but pretty much ignored us. Maybe because we did not order wine from the extensive wine list... We wouldn't go there again - we had been to La Plazuela the day before and had a much better experience at the same price level.

We had two of the salads, silver coin margaritas, wine, and the ruby red trout. The food was outstanding, better than we remember from past visits. Ambience was outstanding as usual—beautiful Santa Fe style decor and very quiet. Service was prompt and accurate, but not at a level that we have experienced in the past, or that we would expect for this price point. The server was pleasant but did not display any in depth knowledge of the food or wine.

We had a wonderful 70th birthday celebration at La Casa Sena. Our meal was very delicious, the server was very attentive, and the atmosphere was very quiet and romantic. Every course of our meal was beautifully presented. My husband even received a complimentary birthday dessert.

Their wine list was not up to date. It was way too hot. The food was good but for what we paid (100$ per person) was nothing extraordinary. I had also indicated on the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and that went unnoticed until I reminded them. Not the top of their game.

This was our first time visiting Casa De Sena when visiting Santa Fe. It was recommended by a friend. We ate at Geronimo’s Saturday night and Casa de Sena Sunday night. While I thought nothing could top Geronimo’s, I was wrong. The food at Casa de Sena was amazing. I had the trout with risotto cake, and it was fantastic. My husband had the Osso Buck, and he was impressed too. We will definitely be heading back to this restaurant when we are next in Santa Fe.

Excellent atmosphere, fantastic wine menu, and great food! We came here during restaurant week for a get together. The pre-fixe menu was great, though I wish they'd had at least one vegetarian option. Otherwise a very lovely place!

Sunday early afternoon before Santa fe Symphony. Intimate service. Varied menu including surprising number of seafood choices. Prompt service but not rushed. Great food. Grand old building and courtyard. Thanks. Off to the concert on a sunwashed afternoon. Pura vida.

This is our very favorite restaurant in SANTA Fe & we always eat there when in town. When it’s warm outside the patio is perfect. On chilly days being next to the fireplace is perfect. Unfortunately the fire was not lit on the blustery winter night we were there but the lovely martini we had was warming. My husband had elk for the first time & loved it. I had the delicious stuffed eggplant. A wonderful meal to celebrate my husband’s birthday.

La Casa is one of the best in Santa Fe over many years.
Upscale menu, service, and wine list.
This year I can dine in Santa Fe enough to join their wine club, which is a good value. And their wine store is very nice.
Remains a good experience over the years.
