My friend and I had not been to Santa Fe in some time, but we had concert tickets nearby, and I suggested we make a return visit. As we got there rather early, for a while we were the only people in the dining room (more people were eating in the front area), so we had even better service than usual. I got a specialty cocktail--a ginger margarita--and liked it very much. We got large appetizers and then burgers (excellent as always), so we were well fed. I could not resist the banana pudding, with real whipped cream. I've never been disappointed at Santa Fe... More

The only thing that stopped me from giving this restaurant 5 stars on everything was they didn’t get our food out in a timely manor. Our waitress did a great job trying to make up for the cooking staff who had misplaced our order (tables that came in after us were getting their food before us). More

The other service people seemed good and attentive, and they let us sit and talk without rushing us (it was a quiet night), and I like that the restaurant doesn't use ghee. I gave 4 stars to give them the benefit of the doubt, since I only tried one meal, and maybe our waitress was having a bad day. More

This is one of my favorite restraunts in New York. It's a place where the local residents go, it's not touristy. The food is excellent, the service is stellar! and the energy is always good. It's a quaint and charming place that we really enjoy. It's a fun date night spot with an impressive wine list. More

Went with my date on a Friday night. I had my usual great Veggie Burger. She had the chicken risotto special. Mine was excellent. Hers was pretty good. She didn’t really enjoy the risotto. Overall a good experience. I recommend. More

Discover Upper West Side

Although it was home to Seinfeld and features other cultural cornerstones like the Lincoln Center, the “Upper Best Side” has long been passed over for other cooler neighborhood when it comes to the food scene. It’s no longer an afterthought, as some of the city’s most exciting new eaters have set up shop above 59th Street, creating more attention for the decades-old uptown institutions. Jewish fare like deli sandwiches and challah French toast are staples, but now you can also find the city’s best dan dan noodles. Grab a cheap Gotham hot dog, class it up with easy and reliable French, and save room for dessert at one of the countless cafes. Just remember to stay intellectually hungry—some of the city’s best museums are right nearby.
