Subpar food but attentive server who accommodated our dietary restrictions and still got us to our theatre performance on time. Thanks!

Old House Restaurant recently closed and Agave, which was in the next room, expanded its space. We didn't know this when we made the reservation but kept the reservation since we had tickets to a function that was across the street. There was no hostess and no one to seat us until a busboy found someone. Agave is . . . a lounge? . . . a small plate restaurant? I don't think they quite know how to utilize the larger space yet. Service was poor. We had to ask different servers to find our server. The wine came after the food, 2 shares that we asked come separately but didn't. The shrimp tamale was all tamale. The salad with grilled salmon was ok, could nave been grilled more. Both came on plates of an awkward size, making sharing a mess.

Breakfast came as part of the package. The waiter was sloppy with pouring water, getting it on the table, menus. When the check came (since it was already paid for) he wrote a note "suggesting"an 18 % gratuity. Food was good, tho.

We would stay at the hotel again -it was lovely - but not eat there.

My husband and I come here for early dinner often. I took my friend for lunch this time.
I like that the valet parking is available.
It’s spacious and service was great. The salad dish that I was looking for was no longer in the menu, but the server talked to the chief and they accommodated to my request.
I appreciated their efforts.

Total train wreck. Our family has been going to the old house for 20 years as it has been one of the best restaurants in town for years. Sadly, they only tell you that the old house is no more once you arrive and what you are faced with is a hotel restaurant. Service was terrible and disorganized. Just as another reviewer mentioned appetizers arrived at the same time as 3 if our 5 entrees ( two others took 23 minutes to get there). So embarrassed as we took out of town guests to a former great place. Clearly they have moved away from real food and just want to serve the hotel guests. The restaurant is poorly managed (after long waits and incorrect orders, we never saw the manager). Good place to go if there is literally no other place open.

Terrible service and undercooked food. I would never go back.

Service was abysmal. First course arrived before drinks. They did not have the sparking wine or bottled wine we ordered from their list. First course came before drinks. We sent it back. Then first and main courses came at the same time. We sent the main back. No accommodation from management for an expensive and aggravating Christmas celebration which still cost an arm and a leg.

xmas eve entrees...both seafood and prime rib were delicious. However for 85.00 each... the prime rib was truly the better value. Seafood entree served only 2 shrimp and 2 scallops

We have been many times to this restaurant and always had a good experience with food and service. This time the food was bad and service poor. Unless management get it’s act together I don’t recommend this place to anyone!

While my steak was good, my husband's sea bass was flavorless. The service was poor even though it was not busy. There were many empty tables.

Meal was good but has been better in the past. Service was average. Have been here many times but will probably try somewhere else next visit to Santa Fe.

Very disappointed in this Thanksgiving dinner. Salad was overdressed and soggy; Lobster Bisque had less than a teaspoon of lobster. Turkey was almost non-existent and was a mess. Server spilled a pitcher of ice all over me, the floor and the table. We had to ask for things at least three times. Very disappointed!

Our service, cuisine, wine and ambience was very appreciated.
The coffee was horrible - skip the coffee.

Shrimp cocktail, crab cake, sea bass. The sea bass was cooked perfectly. It was my birthday and I got a flan and chips and salsa. Enjoyed after dinner drinks. Best was just taking the elevator up after dinner. Lovely evening!

The food was great but we were the only table for an hour. A few service issues, nothing major, just details. The bar was very loud, made it hard to have a conversation in a room with only one table seated, us.

The food is amazing. I can see why it is rated #1 in Santa Fe. Service was ok at best.

Server was really low key. Food was slow coming out and my steak was way under cooked. By the time my steak was served, the ithers in the group were finished eating. He did take 15% off my meal without me having to ask

We noted that the restaurant had few diners, so took that as a clue we might not have made a good choice. As a result we ordered from bar menu. Calimari and nachos were mediocre. Nachos billed as "grilled"chicken, it it there were only a few nuggets of tasteless chicken.
