We sat there for 10 minuets and no one came to take our drink order even. We looked around, no one had food on their tables, drinks finished and no servers on sight so we decided to leave. If they are trying to charge that much for food, they better have great service first.

This was an incredible dining experience. The staff was super friendly and the service was wonderful. We are during Santa Fe’s Restaurant Week, so not only was the food delicious but very affordable. Would definitely eat here again!

Fabulous food and service for restaurant week. Menu was excellent and everything was well prepared. Pork was a bit overdone for our taste but delicious.

Chef didn’t know what “medium well” meant. We asked for medium well and received rare. The meal was sent back twice. He finally butterflied the steak and left other items off the plate.

WE went on a Sunday for lunch but they only serve brunch, mostly egg dishes. We each had
a hamburger which came with french fries. Food was good, served hot but we we really were
looking for a lighter more creative experience.

Once again Luminaria provided us with a great meal and excellent service. We enjoyed a quiet corner where we could have an easy conversation though noise would have been moderate on an evening when they were busy. The Blue Corn "Steak and Enchiladas" filet mignon was an interesting combination--perfectly cooked filet and the Enchiladas added a nice New Mexican touch. The sea bass and jumbo scallop dinners were also perfect.

Tomatoe soup was amazing. Seabass was okay. Could of used a glaze or seasoning. Great wine list and outstanding service.

This was a great find! Searched for a place I thought I had not been to before (realized I had before years ago when I had stayed at the Inn at Loretta. This place will not disappoint. One of the best meals I have had recently. Pork Belly starter and Lamb chops entree were incredible (served with green Chile grits and sugar snap peas!! I will have to go back!! Oh, and the Service was great!!

Food was delicious! Waitstaff was very pleasant and courteous however the service was extremely slow and there weren’t many customers. Aside from the slow service a very enjoyable meal!

We went with friends for New Year's Eve and it was perfect, from the food to the service, it was relaxed and the noise level if always tolerable.

The restaurant is always very enjoyable for every meal, breakfast, lunch and dinner!

New Years Eve Dinner and birthday dinner. Set menu for evening did mot include a drink. Started off well with apps, but steak was overly charred entire dish overwhelmed. Sea Bass was cooked well but polenta was runny with frozen veggies on top. Desserts ok, chocolate trio was dry.

As a Santa Fe resident, the Lumanaria is our top pick for special occasions. Food and service are consistently good and the wine list is excellent. Highly recommended

Food took forever to come out. When my steak arrived it was way undercooked. I felt sorry for our server trying to make excuses for the kitchen.

We had Christmas brunch there last year (2016). It was great, so we went back again this year. It was a totally different experience. The difference was so extreme, we can only assume it has had a drastic change in management.

We had to wait 50 minutes for the food. It's not like it's a big place with 50-100 people to serve. It's pretty small. Add to that we didn't get the food on the menu we wanted. They were out of that... Nor did we end up ordering food that takes awhile to prepare. My wife had a salad and I ordered an omelet...

The food was just okay. The Caesar salad came with dressing laced with some sort of red chili pepper. Typical around here... Anyway, she asked if she could just have regular Caesar dressing. No, of course not... What restaurant serving Caesar salad doesn't have Caesar dressing???

Last year there was a dessert buffet. There wasn't one this year. They had a few offerings for dessert, but at that point we were afraid if we ordered something, we'd have to wait another hour for it. It just wasn't worth it.

On the way out, I wanted an Irish Coffee, so we went into the bar. Big mistake. It was as bad as the restaurant. Again, the place wasn't busy. There were maybe 5 people in there, including us. We waited to order, waited for the drink, and by the time we were ready to pay up and leave, the people who worked behind the bar had simply disappeared. Finally, someone materialized, and I asked for the check. The guy told us that was a no-can-do because I hadn't ordered the drink from him. We would just have to wait until the guy I ordered the drink from returned. It took awhile, just like everything else in this place.

Next year we'll have to find somewhere else to eat. Virtually anyplace would be better than this.
