    All people at our table said their meals were excellent. The new, temporary chef introduced himself. Those of us who dine at Luminaria with some regularity, commended him on a very improved standard of dining. Carlos is an outstanding server!

    So good! We’re always a little leery of hotel restaurants but this one was so good! The scallops plate was probably the most beautiful dish I’ve ever been presented with and it tasted as good as it looked. The flourless chocolate torte was also delicious. Very relaxing, good service and good food!

    An excellent dinner last night. The brussel sprout appetizer was amazingly good. The venison ribs were outstanding & cooked exactly as I ordered it, to perfection. The have a good wine list with good choices & reasonably priced. The only down side is the valet parking.

    Our first visit. We live in Santa Fe. The menu was interesting but expensive. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Our server was less than interested in my questions about various dishes because of my need to avoid dairy products. The bar was out of a regularly stocked item because of a recent banquet. That was disappointing. The executive chef came to the dining room to speak briefly to diners and that was an unusual event. We will go back some time because of the quality of the food and the ambiance for indoor evening dining.

    I was meeting a friend who had recently experienced the death of a loved one. I was SO impressed with how the staff quickly realized the situation, and gave us the room to be in the moment. They ensured our food order was taken, delivered, and refills without ever even knowing they were there. All of the meal was excellent, but on this visit it was the Staff that truly made this visit so comfortable. Thank you to all of the staff that waited on us.

    Food was excellent but service was atrocious. Our entrees were brought to table with no cutlery, and staff ignored our attempts to flag them down. Later in meal my wife asked a question of one wait staff, and was rudely answered. If the gratuity had not been baked into the bill, I would have given no tip.

    Cute restaurant, however the gorgeous terrace depicted on main photo is not functioning during cold times. The inside is just ok. Food was fine. Our server, Carlos, was awesome. The hostess (Marie, I believe) was not gracious or accommodating at all. We had reservations. Half the tables were available, yet she wanted to seat us in a hidden corner booth. We asked for a nicer table by the fireplace, but she said it was not available. We asked about 2 other empty tables beat the bar. She said they were also not available. We had to wait until another table finished to be given a table. During our entire meal, all of the three tables we inquired about remained empty. Towards the end of our meal, we asked the hostess why it had been impossible to give us any of the three tables which were still empty and she replied that they were all reserved. She said “Sorry.” Her apology was not genuine. Thankfully, Carlos made it for it. This place is average at best.

    My seabass was best ever. cooked perfect with great sauce and green chili risotto was special.. Becky's shrimp scampi also great. Only service issue was second courses showed up while still eating first. We really like to take our time. A yummy dessert on the house made things much better.. We had a late reservation so restaurant was begging to shut down as we left. our server was very good otherwise...

    Service was bad. They didn’t bring us napkins when we asked and they took the bread plates away before bringing out the bread. The bread also came out with our meal which kind of defeats the purpose. We didn't like the music choice either. Great for a spa not so great for a restaurant. Food was good.

    Fabulous entree Two of us had the Sea Bass and it was excellent. Delicious and beautiful presentation. One friend who had the ribeye said that her food was just lukewarm and she was not that happy with her steak or the presentation. I enjoyed the quiet setting. We could talk without needing to shout.

    My wife and I made reservations for Christmas Eve. It was a set four course menu. It cost us $300 with one round of drinks and it wasn’t worth it. We were also insulted by being forced to pay mandatory gratuity on each person totaling about $45 even with horrible service. Why should the wait staff even try? We were surrounded by patrons at three other tables having similar problems like not being able to get silverware (a couple had to share a fork), long waits for drinks or water refills (my wife had to ask three times), the wrong food coming out, and my personal favorite the staff not knowing anything about the menu. First I was told by our waitress that all four entrees were safe for me to eat. I have celiac disease. To my surprise the braised short rib came smothered in gravy. I was sick all night. I didn’t know they weren’t using a gluten-free flour. Maybe she was supposed to request no gravy? Second I was told that it wasn’t spicy hot even though it had diced chiles all over it. I cancelled our breakfast reservations for the same restaurant the following morning because dinner was so unpleasant. This place is not five star service while expecting outrageous five star pricing. I expect better from a place charging this much money.

    12/22/23: I ordered the Scallops, my two guests ordered the Venison and the prime rib. Those two were plated beautifully with wonderful "sides" and the plate looked complete. The Scallops, though delicious, looked sparse on the plate...just 4 lined up in a row. There should have been more to finish off that dish and make it look as enticing as the other entrees just mentioned. I could have seen a lovely timbale of vegetables on one side and some polenta cakes on the other side of the scallops...then finished with some greens or a bright red-pepper-pickle of some kind. Everything else was perfect and we'll be back, but I hope you'll listen to my review of the scallops. As we all know: We eat with our eyes.

    I am EXTREMELY disappointed with my experience here. Some aspects were not at all acceptable nor professional for such an expensive restaurant. I will never be back First: If you have any food allergies, this is NOT a place for you. Our waiter advised that Luminaria's kitchen WILL NOT accommodate food allergies. We had two out of four people with some allergies (one to mushrooms and the other dairy). The waiter abruptly just stated they cannot avoid cross contamination or even prepare food that was less likely for the allergens to be present. For a restaurant that claims to be a 4 star restaurant with very high prices- this is not acceptable at all. The waiter was just rude about the whole thing, not offering alternatives or anything else. I simply wasn't able to order anything to eat AT ALL. Second: Service was excrutiatingly slow. The waiter left us with empty glasses, brought all the food that my colleagues were having (appetizers and entrees) all at the same time. Then, he disappears for 30+ minutes. Third: This place is not suitable for disabled persons - I plan to complain to the State of New Mexico about this. If you have a disabled person with a walking impediment who requires a walker- this is NOT the place to go to. The furnishings (large chairs and tables) are packed so close together that people with disabilities like requiring a walker have to literally have people move entire chairs and tables to get them to a table. The single disabled access bathroom had an overflowing toilet flooding the room. The staff were frankly not at all respectful to our disabled (cancer treatment) party - we (the guests) were left to our own devices. This leads me to believe that Luminaria is now just an overpriced poser restaurant. Pretending to be a high class restaurant, but instead is just a run of the mill hotel cafeteria with crowded furnishings. With so many other excellent and attentive restaurants in Santa Fe I can't say a single good thing about Luminaria.
