    Food was really underwhelming. Arancini - very good Crab cakes - not so good Gazpacho - salsa Elote Salad - bland Loretto Burger - where was chili and the sharp white cheddar. Medium does not mean charred hard on the outside and brown all the way through. I dunno - maybe it was an off night. The outside ambiance is very nice though.

    Service and ambiance wonderful but have decided on no more dinners here. Breakfast is great! Ravioli was not tasty and wild boar just so so with unpleasant sauce. Panna Cotta was weak and not firm. Not very tadt6 either. Everything seemed to be off as far as food goes.

    Very peaceful and thoughtful ambience, the decor is tastefully Santa Fe without being garish. The food devine! We ate brunch there and I only sad that I couldn’t have more than 1 entree at a time-we will have to go back to enjoy all the dishes. The potato latke vaults to the top of my best breakfast ever list.

    As locals, the summer tourist season in Santa Fe can be chaotic. Luminaria is consistently a quiet gem in the midst of downtown. The Inn of Loretto is a favorite spot for us and Luminaria never disappoints with great food and wonderful service. We chose it for our wedding reception 10 years ago and always feel comfortable there for date nights.

    Wonderful end of school year celebration with my two daughters. Lovely atmosphere and reasonably priced and tasty food. My favorite lunch spot in Santa Fe without doubt. I love being where I can hear the cathedral bells throughout our visit.

    The patio is beautiful and relaxing and surrounded with views of old Santa Fe architecture. We all ordered salads. I had The Plaza Cobb served with a chicken breast and mixed field greens. It was delicious. No complaints.

    We overall enjoyed our meal, and our server was doing his best to take care of everyone (seemed understaffed!), but the host/hostess was simply awful… We approached in morning for breakfast, she was quite rude when we asked for menus (she sent us few feet away to look at menu when she had huge stack in front of her), and she was clearly annoyed…we actually left! Next night, we had reservation, and stood waiting, while the host ignored us, on the phone taking care of other people for quite some time…once he hung up, he proceeded to have a conversation with some other staff person, again, for many minutes! We literally felt invisible, and if we weren’t so hungry, we would’ve left. They really need to address this, this is a high end restaurant!

    Seated at awful table next to staging area. Tree litter was all over tablecloth. Obviously no one cleaned before we were seated. Loud crashing dishes from staging area were very annoying. Waiter was regularly coughing behind staging area screen. Scary in Covid era. Service was indifferent and slow. Saw other people unhappy with food and/or service. Last straw was when couple with large dog was seated right next to us with no warning. We complained about everything to manager who had zero interest in listening to what an awful experience we had. Avoid this restaurant!

    I do not blame the servers. I don't think they have enough support to take care of their tables. I had a lunch that took 2+ hours for a salad. a sandwich and tacos. the salad came with the wrong dressing on it and the server told me he could try and see if the kitchen would re-do it. What???? I hope this lack of support changes. Its a beautiful restaurant with great food, usually. Very disappointed.

    Luminaria's outdoor venue is one of the most beautiful in Santa Fe. Comfortably situated away the street next to the Loretto chapel, it is a quiet and peaceful respite. The food at the Sunday brunch was very well done and almost matches the atmosphere. Service was good, but the overall brunch experience was excellent.

    We’ve been to Luminaria on several occasions and always enjoyed it! But last evening was very disappointing! It was chilly and there were no outdoor heaters 👎🏻 But, the food was the real issue. Mixed salad limp and almost flavorless The salmon entree was truly bland and not enjoyable at all Will not return til the chef improves his game Really a shame😢
