Located at the awarding-winning Inn and Spa at Loretto, Luminaria Restaurant and Patio combines modern sophistication with rustic Southwestern charm.

During the warmer months, dine outdoors on the rustic wood patio adjacent to the world-renowned Loretto Chapel. At twilight, dine al fresco under the stars, transform the high desert into a romantic veranda draped and tented with flowering vines and luxurious flowing fabrics lit by hanging lanterns.

In the past we have only eaten lunch at Luminaria. This past weekend we tried dinner and unfortunately were underwhelmed. Menu was sparse, our waiter was overwhelmed and, in the future, we will be back only for lunch!

Food was very good but was cooked in too much oil, lots of oil left on the plate. Beautiful space. Will return.

Perfect weather, good social distancing, majority of staff following proper masking. Eric was our waiter & was fabulous. We had Pablano Relleno sitting on a bed of spicey spighetti boulagnase. Regular margs were excellen!

I was disappointed in my beet salad. It was basically a green salad with about 1/2 beet surrounding the greens. The food, as a whole, was tasty, and the atmosphere was great.

I would say the Luminaria is "to die for." What more can I say? The outside patio is terrific--elegant, the rooftop lined with little lights, great people--I always meet someone I enjoy talking to at the table next to me! The food was fantastic, although a very limited menu, probably due to the coronavirus issues. However, if there were only 2 things on the menu, I'm sure one of them would suit me just fine! Thank you, Luminaria--I will be there again next year!!

I’m hoping the kitchen was having an off night but we went to a burger place after this. Lovely location and view. The wait staff was amazing.

Luminaria Patio is always a delight. The setting is very attractive, with tables the perfect size for good conversation and plenty of space for all the good food and drink you will want to enjoy. Fine lInens on the tables lend an air of grace. Seating is commodious and very comfortable. As for the food - delicious and beautifully presented.

We were excited to eat at Luminaria. We loved our outdoor table and the ambience was excellent. However, our service was less than stellar - our waiter was not attentive and a poor communicator. We both ordered the Chili Relleno and were extremely disappointed. It was very bland - zero spice or heat, although the cheese inside was good. We had to ask for some hot sauce to make it slightly resemble a spicy, Mexican dish. Our shrimp appetizer was good. The Caesar Salad was the best thing we ate.

We are locals and had stopped eating at Luminaria b/c we had a few bad meals; I think there is a new chef and the food is back up to being delicious. Of course, the patio is one of the best in town and the service has always been outstanding. So glad the quality of the food is great again.

The service was extremely slow and not very good. Our waiter was not very attentive and did not even ask if we wanted dessert. He messed up our separate checks so horribly we just decided to split the bill. The food was okay but not fantastic for the price. The pasta on the relleno was extremely al dente to the point it was crunchy. The main course selection was extremely limited.

We have previously dined at Luminaria, and had to dine on their patio this time due to COVIS-19 restrictions imposed by our governor, but the patio is great! The service was a little slow, but it allowed for time to enjoy the surroundings! The food was creative, and very good! I would recommend Luminaria when you are in Santa Fe!

The food was good. The manager knew his stuff and was helpful on wine selection. The waiter seemed green and really didn’t know much about the menu or wines. Overall we had a good meal and time even with a rainstorm in the middle.

The food was delicious. However, the chef needs to work on his "salmon dish". It was over cooked and dry. There was no flavor and it was pretty boring on a bed of bland greens.
