The food was exceptional and the service was outstanding. We happened to mention we were in Santa Fe for our upcoming wedding anniversary as we were married at Loretto Chapel and the staff took it upon themselves to sprinkle our table with rose petals and give us a complimentary dessert. They didn’t have to do that since our actual anniversary was a few days away. We were extremely touched. ❤️🙌🏻❤️

I enjoy patio dining and this may be one of the best. The setting is absolutely lovely, nestled right next to the historic Chapel of Loretto. The food was absolutely superb. The tortilla soup was the best I've eaten. The lobster Mac-n-cheese was phenomenal, beautiful sweet lobster tail on top and small pieces throughout the dish, pasta cooked perfectly, and the cheese/cream sauce had the proper texture and taste. My dining partner also enjoyed the soup and then raved about his fish tacos as tasting as if they had just come from the grill seconds before. Santa Fe boasts a number of al fresco dining opportunities but this may well be the best. Luminaria offers valet parking, a real advantage in crowded Santa Fe. It is not inexpensive, but affords a memorable dining experience.

Yet another OpenTable disappointment. The service is absolutely awful, servers take nearly 20m to show up at the table, they don’t check on what people need in between delivery of food. They served side dishes without any utensils, when we asked for utensils, waiter came back and said they didn’t have any at which point we said just bring some ordinary spoons. Spinach was clearly frozen and reheated, for such a pricey restraint, we were very disappointed!

The food was great, we had the sea bass, and the filet minion. Food was cooked to perfection, and the margaritas were very refreshing. Our waitress Jessica made good suggestions and provided excellent service. We will definitely go back and try different items on the menu.

We don't usually think of Luminaria as a "go to" place, yet every time we have been, it has been wonderful. Cozy booths, good service. The only reason I didn't rate the food higher was that we all ordered egg dishes "over medium" and they actually were cooked hard, no yolk at all. The server didn't really notice and as we didn't say anything, didn't ask. Beautiful plating and presentation. Summer months is great to eat outside on the covered patio. All in all, always a good experience in some way.

We went for restaurant week but have been here other times too. The food was delicious, sea bass with spinach and a filet with potatoes. Scallop for an appetizer and tres leches cake and chocolate mousse for dessert. Presentation was great as always.

Went for restaurant week and it was such an amazing value for the fantastic meal and experience. The cioppino starter was so hearty I couldn’t believe it was just the appetizer, with half a lobster tail, shrimp, mussels, and a beautifully spicy broth. Three of us had different entrees and we usually decide who won the night.. but all three were to die for (mini filet, sea bass, adobo pork)! Mango creme brûlée won the dessert for me :) I will absolutely be coming here for more special occasions!

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.

Chairs were a little uncomfortable for a shorter person. Was there for restaurant week menu and We started with the sea scallop, was not the best, two plates we plated different , the taste was not a sweet as other sea scallops I had in the past. But the filet was cooked perfect also the sea bass was cooked perfect. It was a very good overall.

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.
