Luminaria Restaurant & Patio
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.
Always good for lunch. My friends had not dined here since the new chef and GM arrived...they.’ll be back!!
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!!
My birthday lunch! It was amazing! Great service, food was delicious and the patio was so perfect!!
Great spot to celebrate a fun occasion.
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.
Small food portions. Nice ambiance. Good service.
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.
Good food, service, and ambience in a safe outdoor covered patio.
Absolutely wonderful. The food was amazing. The service was outstanding. And the place is just beautiful. I had breakfast at Luminaria twice during my stay in Santa Fe.
My party and I had a great time ,the food and the atmosphere was just perfect.
Wonderful food, fabulous service, and romantic atmosphere for a patio dinner.
Great ambience, took appropriate Covid precautions, excellent and friendly service. excellent beet salad, shrimps, and very good steak frites. Very good and reasonably priced wine list.
Our breakfast was as pleasant as the online photos looked. Beautiful setting and great food.
We ordered the omelette and it was EXTRAORDINARY!
It was light and fluffy just the perfect consistency and seasoned well. We felt it was he best in Santa Fe.
Finally, we know where to go fir an omelette just Lee in France!
Thank you to the Chef!
Attentive service, well prepared food, lovely atmosphere.
Best hamburger in Santa Fe
I took visitors there for lunch. The outdoor dining area is beautiful and the food was delicious. They loved it.
Sunday brunch on the patio was very nice!
Absolutely the best service we've ever experienced. The food is just as good and the atmosphere is amazing.
Inattentive service, could be a lovely experience with some updates and more attentive staff.
Fantastic!!!!!! Excellent food and service!!!!!!!!
It was beautiful
Lovely patio, food and service!
We enjoyed Sunday brunch on the Luminaria patio, and it was great! The morning was beautiful, and the food and service were very good!
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!
One of the most beautiful outdoor dining spaces in Santa Fe. So glad you are now open. We enjoyed our evening out immensely. Thank you.
We had a wonderful dinner on the patio watching the sunset. We loved the whole experience and recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet romantic evening out.
Been going here for @20 years. The chef's change, but the service os always great, the ambiance super, the food good to great. Thanks!
Good wait staff- corrected mistake immediately. Very polite as we entered restaurant
Nice brunch menu The latke dish was outstanding!!! Service was great. Patio is very comfortable. Great lunch venue.
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.
This is a lovely restaurant. Great food, service and venue.
Best burger I have ever had!
Great ambience and the staff was working really hard to adhere to a whole new set of procedures for the physical and emotional safety of the diners. I would love to see this place when there aren’t so many restrictions. It was just magical even during all of the COVID craziness!
A great get away in Santa Fe. This was the first night they opened. Lovely!
Carlos was great!!
