The location, food, and service were very good. The only issue is that staff appeared to be short handed and struggled to fine a bottle of wine. When asked about the wine, one person responded, "We don't have a manager, that is why we cannot find your wine!" Yes, they could not find the bottle of wine we wanted, but somehow found a $40 More bottle. This was the only issue that detracted from dinner. We understand they are hiring some new staff, hopefully this will help. More

Happy Hour was very good...... Not fond of the HH wine selection.....but the lamb chops on the HH menu for $11.90 were spectacular. I had seen these on the website. In person this included a small frisee salad which was also perfect. Although I met 2 terrific people at the bar to talk with, the bar itself does not have much ambience. The bartender Misty was great. I did not stay at the hotel so I cannot review anything else. Based on the lamb chops, I would certainly recommend your restaurant to others. More

I can’t say enough about El Nido - great service and an excellent menu (I REALLY like the green chilie oyster appetizer and the buffalo bolognese). Drinks are tasty and the atmosphere is grown-up and fun. Finally they box up any leftovers for you (not just shove a box in your direction and expect you to figure it out like so many places these days). The family and I will definitely be back!! Tip: get outdoor seating when the weather warms up. More

Never been a huge fan, but we had an excellent meal, good wine and very good service. The lamb sausage penne and pizza, both very good. Their signature appetizer, polenta and gorgonzola, always tasty. My only comment would be that a regular beef or veal dish would add variety to the menu. Pricing good. Crowded and loud, but I'm loud, so didn't matter ;) More

Discover Santa Fe

The Food Museum calls Santa Fe a "food and heritage community." It is a capital city that has existed since 1610, and today, it thrives on tourism with vibrant streets standing side by side and beckoning hungry visitors. A memorable experience for visitors is tasting the legendary Santa Fe green chile and the endless dishes it complements. New Mexican food isn't your typical Mexican fare. Enjoy breakfast burritos smothered in chile and sweet sopapillas with a side of honey for dessert. Borrowing from New Mexico’s wine making tradition, it's also been touted as home to one of the top 100 wines in America. The area features an abundance of festive restaurants, bars, and markets framed by gorgeous scenery.
