La Plazuela at La Fonda on the Plaza
Chile rellenos made with poblanos is not the New Mexican way ❗️ Red and green Chile was very bland and tasteless‼️Food is geared for geriatrics‼️Will not be back
La Plazuela has never failed to serve a memorable dinner for me and my wife. The quality of the service makes us feel as though we are very special people as the wait staff are always very attentive but not bothersome. The food was excellent in all regards. Even the spicy and creamy ranch salad dressing was a treat being out-of-the-ordinary but extremely flavorful. The entrees were both excellent and filling. Ambiance at La Plazuela is always treat. We sat next to the fountain, our favorite seating location, and enjoyed viewing the architecture that oozes with history.
Always consistently good and a favorite stop when we’re in Santa Fe. Lovely old world decor and very comfortable atmosphere.
Great food and service, excellent assistance with reservation modification needed.
This restaurant is underrated, we have eaten here many times and there is always consistency in preparation with excellent service. It is a Santa Fe icon.
Service was not great. Fajitas were great, but the prime rib was very fatty.
What a wonderful place to go go for a special night out with a loved one! Outstanding service and food in magnificent atmosphere. Thanks so much!
We really enjoyed our Valentine Dinner experience at La Plazuela. Everything was perfect including the rose that I received at the end!
Have been to La Plazuela before and, as this time, it is terrific! Food, Service and the setting were as great as always. Nice to know that you can count on them to deliver the same high quality experience as they did back in 1990!
A lovely and delicious dining destination, that completely enhanced our stay at the La Fonda. We will be back.
Nice service and ambience. Food great
Amazing food. Very flavorful with nice presentation. The wait staff were very attentive. Overall, a very relaxed and enjoyable meal. Will definitely be back!
Visiting our daughter.
My husband and I came here for our wedding dinner—just the two of us, as we eloped! It was absolutely perfect, and we loved sitting next to the fountain. Food, drinks, service, and ambiance were all top-notch and made for the perfect end to our perfect day 😊
We go to La plazuela frequently and find the quality of food and service remarkably consistent. Its the place we like to take out-of-town visitors because we can count on an excellent meal. And the experience is truly Santa Fe.
Enchiladas with red and green sauce and filet were great. Tableside guacamole was outstanding. Tortilla soup was ordinary. Price was good value for the food. We would go again!
This is our absolute “special occasion” go-to place. There is no better service, ambiance, or food in Santa Fe. The filet and enchiladas best thing on menu! Can’t wait for this year’s birthdays and anniversary to return!
The service was excellent, the food was excellent. The night was great!!
The steak (filet mignon) melted in my mouth and the enchiladas were remarkably delicious. The Assorted Field Greens were delectable and large enough for two. The service was impeccable and the ambiance (we sat next to the fountain) delightful.
A nice place to take visitors. Wonderful ambiance and attentive wait staff. The medallions of beef were delicious and included a generous portion of steamed baby spinach. The accompanying potato needed improvement to rate 5 stars. At $33.00, the salmon dish was not a good value.
This restaurant is a Santa Fe land mark with Southwest decor. This time the food was delicious & service very attentive.
The food was fine-the ambiance could have been better. The hostess was very cold and unpleasant-behaved as if she was doing us a favor by eating there.
It is pricey for what you get.
La Fonda plazuela ( not the bar) has good wait staff and they accommodate my wife’s allergies with concern... table dude guacamole is a treat and it can by customized to your taste. Lamb on the menu is a plus for Santa Fe restaurants .
Service was great. Table side guacamole excellent. Interesting and fun atmosphere. The issue was we had one person who was vegan and another dairy free. They were able to make items that fit these needs but they became plain and boring without the sauces. This could have been easily fixed by adding sauces that complimented the dishes but fit the dietary needs.
Everything was excellent! Would definitely recommend trying it out.
The prime rib was great but those vegetables! Drab, steamed, sad, lumps. The room was chilly.
Superb! Authentic northern New Mexico fare in a beautiful restaurant.
Had a most lovely birthday dinner there. Come every year
Since we are seniors we choice to eat early, we had our table at shortly after 5:00 and the staff was quick to our table and took our drink order and told us about the menu. My wife and I have eaten there often and knew what we wanted for dinner this evening . I ordered the leg of lamb and my wife ordered the pork shank. Our drinks were served, bread brought to the table and we settled in for a comfortable evening meal. Bryan our server saw to it that our meals were up to our standards and check on us often to see if we needed anything else. At the end of our meal we ordered Flan and coffee. Perfect evening in a wonderful hotel.
Our favorite is always the filet and enchiladas. The meat is so tender and flavorful, and the enchiladas are best when covered with Christmas chile (red and green). Ask for your sopapillas at the end of your meal so they're hot. Enjoyed the Don Rael margarita also. Sitting under the trees, festooned with white lights, with the gentle murmur of the fountain and surrounded by the colorful hand-painted windows, you know you're in a special place.
We were visiting Santa Fe and enjoyed a special occasion dinner at La Fonda. No complaints. It was a classy and tasty dining experience.
Reserved a table for two - wife's birthday. Nice open courtyard setting, on the quiet side - easy to carry on a conversation. We ordered the poblano chowder, which was very tasty.....and Fajitas for two. I loved the beef, wife loved the chicken, and the sides and sopaipillas were perfect!
Great dinner in a wonderful space. We sat by the fountain and enjoyed the sound of the water as we ate our meals. Fajitas was great as was my tenderloin.
They over book, a very long wait for having a reservation
I love La Plazuela for its history and ambience. Unfortunately most of the time I have eaten there, the service has been poor. ( slow service and cold food) The servicers are very pleasant but I think the kitchen was at fault.
Filet medallions over cooked. Italian dish with shrimp used tiny popcorn shrimp...just not right.
Excellent guacamole, rellenos, and enchiladas. Portions were huge. Would have appreciated knowing about half portions before ordering
Great Food, service was great! Server was really friendly and attentive.
Beautiful decor in a great location. Dinner was great. Steak was perfectly cooked and the enchiladas were very tasty.
Husband had the prime rib. And very much enjoyed it.
Disappointing food. Lovely room.
