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!

Maybe a little overrated, but still good. Old school New Mexican ambiance vs. authentic. Great server, good margarita.

We were vacationing in Santa Fe and staying at the La Fonda hotel. We made reservations for the first night at their restaurant. It was restaurant week and we used that menu. Food was plentiful and well presented. Our server was efficient, professional yet friendly.
Also, the lounge next door has live music most nights.

Great food. Enjoyed a nice prime rib, juicy, tasty and large. My wife had the chile relleno, she thought they were delicious with both red and green Chile. Excellent friendly service. Will definitely be back.

The waitress was in a very great hurry to get us out of there: asked for our order as soon as butt hit seat, asked again before the water even arrived, didn't offer bar drinks before dinner, was trying to take our plates before we were finished eating. All this at 7:00 PM, so the restaurant itself wasn't trying to close. I hope her date was worth it.

Love the ambiance and decor. Service was terrific. The food was so-so. We had the fajitas and they were bland. No seasoning. The shrimp was watery tasting and mushy. However, the tortilla soup was a real treat. We just go on special occasions, but other than that, we probably wouldn't recommend it for the food alone.

What a fabulous prime rib on a Friday night in Santa Fe. Roasted to perfection and seasoned just out of this world. Took half of it home and enjoyed it the next AM with eggs. Yummy!

The gluten free options were very limited, but for those of you who are celiac, if you ask enough questions, you should be okay. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about what elements of the dishes had gluten and we were able to substitute for gluten-free options. I will say that this is the first time I wasn't able to order fajitas because of gluten.

The biggest negative was the stingy pour of whiskey. It was indeed the smallest pour I think my husband has ever encountered... no contest. The waiter did say that this wasn't a mistake...that it was the standard amount. Stay away from ordering a whiskey neat!

Overall, it was a good experience. We love the ambiance and atmosphere at La Fonda and will go back just for that reason.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The chile relleno was amazing and the airline chicken was refreshing. The table was split on the wine prices – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the price was too high for the quality. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly.
