La Plazuela was the hotel’s original 1920s patio and it retains that sunlit Old World charm. Skylights flood the dining room with natural light and handsome carved furnishings, artisanal lighting, and our much-loved hand painted windows create a beautiful, inviting room to gather, to dine and to make memories in. The menu was crafted to showcase old favorites with New World influences and authentic New Mexican cuisine, and our award-winning wine list is exceptional. La Plazuela at La Fonda on the Plaza is Santa Fe’s gathering place. Come dine with us!

We thoroughly enjoyed our girl's night out dinner at La Plazuela. The ambience was fantastic - it felt like you were sitting outside on the patio of a Spanish hacienda (but nice and warm since you were inside). We couldn't decide between rellenos or tamales, so our server made it possible so we could have both! The rellenos were excellent; not too greasy and the breading was just right. The tamales and posole were delicious as well, but a little bit spicy for my taste (this was common a other New Mexican restaurants we ate at as well). I would definitely recommend La Plazuela if you are visiting Santa Fe! Very tasty and reasonably priced for a nice dinner.

Friendly service. Nice interior decor. Crab cakes were ok and small for $19. Great wine list.

My family and friends have enjoyed dining at La Plazuela. The cusine always meets our expectation and is well presented. The service is always exceptional, especialy with Stormi who has been there for 0ver 30 years. I highly recommend La Plazuela as one of the best restaurants in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

I love La Plazuela but this particular visit was not good. Our two meals were tasteless, the service was slow & not attentive and I proceeded to be sick that night & the next day. My salmon was over-cooked & dry so I think the chef was making up for old fish and I became sick because of it. I will continue to go to this restaurant, since I've been eating there since 1978. I realize this was one bad meal out of many, however, I hope the food returns to their usual standards and the wait staff learn proper service.

We had the salmon and the chicken dish. Both were excellent, although the chicken special was outstanding. I think that it is their signature dish. Wine by the glass selections were great. As always, it is a beautiful place in the heart of Santa Fe.
