Chez Mamou has been one of our favorites since moving to Santa Fe eight years ago.
Dinner was fantastic.... the food was delicious and service impeccable. Liroh was our waiter and happens also to be their wine director. Highly recommend Chez Mamou for dinner!
Bottom like is, I don't mind paying for good, tasty, freshly prepared meals. This restaurant was not worthy of their prices, service and quality of food.
I'm not convinced that food is freshly prepared. The broccoli and french looked and tasted like prepacked frozen food you get at grocery store. It looked like they put the broccoli on the grill and gave ONE side a charred look. And sprinkles salt on top.
The steak had no favor. The short ribs where as good as you would get at a diner. The chocolate dessert had so much cocoa powder, I choked on it when I took a bit.
Service was not to par for a "fine" restaurant. Oh!! And part of the restaurant was a bead shop! Why??
There are to many other fine restaurants in Santa Fe. Don't waste your time and money here.
Very nice low key evening. Great ambiance, great service, and great food.
We enjoyed a nice lunch with little noise and good service.
Beautifully prepared from a menu full of creative dishes.
I had high expectations, but overall this wasn't a good experience. While the French onion soup was perfect, the duck was seriously overcooked and dry. The waiter brought our entrees without clearing the appetizer plates, which was awkward. There was quite a bit of drama going on with the staff, which unfortunately we were exposed to. Unpleasant, we won't be back.
Superb! The French onion soup is to die for - Cannot have a meal here without it. The duck was delicious. Desserts scrumptious. Lovely restaurant.
Restaurant menu has great of variety. The food was superb!
Food is very good. Very slow service; the entire meal they brought the next course and the watier couldn't put it down because plates had not been cleared. Had to ask for water three times. Time between courses unreasonably long. One bathroom? Got a dessert added we did not want. Expected more for the price. My girlfriend loved and and will return. I won't accompany her.
We tried the Restaurant Week fixed price menu and were very pleased with our meal. Every dish was perfectly prepared and my Coquilles St Jacques were fantastic. Our server was friendly and attentive and went out of his way to make our evening enjoyable.
This was the best meal we had during Santa Fe’s restaurant week. I appreciated the number of choices that were given. Food and service are always consistently good.
The food was really good; tables were somewhat close together, but maybe that’s typical for a French restaurant. We enjoyed the evening tremendously.
One of my favorite restaurants in town. Always a much when company are in town.
Excellent food and wine. Did the restaurant week event menu. Good value and a great wine pairing with each course.
Fantastic service and food!
It was a pretty good experience but I won't go back
Least fave restuarant experience in SF so far. Food was mediocre, as was the service & attitude. Never been to a French restuarant where no bread & butter was not served. The cafe latte' was good tho. Glad the 3 other ppl in our group who were celebrating birthday were the great atmosphere. None of us enjoyed the restuarant. The least tip I have ever given to reflect this
Great value, very good food and comfortable atmosphere!
Loved the onion soup. The value of the food for Restaurant Week in Santa Fe was fine and enjoyed my visit to this restaurant.
This was our first visit. Will try it again for dinner. Wine list is limited, but there are a few potentialgems worth trying.
Lovely! Santa Fe Restaurant week 3-course special menu. Food was great! Service impeccable and friendly. The French onion soup was to-die-for! The scallops and salmon main courses were great. Only (very small) disappointment was a choice of only 2 desserts instead of the dessert tray selection advertised.
We made a reservation but when we arrived it wasn't acknowledged. Only one server for the entire dining room and therefore quite slow and scattered. The server tried but no other help other than a runner.
The food and service was really great. The server was particularly knowledgeable about the food and the wine list.
What a lovely brunch - simply perfect. The staff at Chez Mamou went out of their way to ensure that we had a table by the windows. Service was excellent - never rushed. Great wine selection which was reasonably priced by the glass. The menu perfect additional brunch options but we were able to order off the full menu. I usually don't have desert but I am happy I decided to share a desert at Cafe Mamou - excellent tarte. You will not be disappointed by the atmosphere, service, wine or food.
Amazing food! Went there for breakfast and for dinner!
This is one of favorite spots- Lerous is an outstanding waiter and always a pleasure.
maybe but we were ignored during Valentine'z Day. Not sure I can recommend
Went for Valentine’s dinner with friends visiting from out of town. No service for 30 mins. Then no entree for 1.5 hours while other diners came, ate, and left. No prepared for the rush. They did comp whole meal and food was good (although one order was wrong when it finally arrived). Give it a try but stay away on special occasions.
With an Open Table reservation, would have expected a table by ourselves. There were some, two people at table for 4. But we were crammed mediately next to two other small tables for 2. Better luck next time. Everything else was great.
Our service was excellent. Our server recommended a great wine coupling for our dishes. All spectacular with one exception, the bread. Couldn’t believe it as all else was quintessential French.
Our waiter was so very efficient, helpful and professional. We had wonderful meal.
We went to celebrate our birthdays. Unfortunately, we were disappointed in the food. Specifically, the scallops in the appetizer were over cooked and the ahi tuna in the Niçoise salad arrived cooked through, which was corrected when I pointed this out. The mussels in the main dish were ok, but not really delicious. The lemon tart for dessert was excellent. The service was excellent. The ambiance was charming. Since there were only two other tables when we got there, the noise level was low.
Thanks for a tasty, friendly evening.
Excellent food quality! Service is mediocre
Excellent food and service, wonderful selection of French wines.
This is our favorite restaurant. Always good! We go to Chez often and plan to go back.
Everything about this restaurant was a wonderful experience except for one very serious gaffe. The gentleman who escorted us to our table made a great flourish of seating my friend by pulling out her chair while completely ignoring me. I was left standing with no indication that my chair would be pulled out. It was a bit unsettling and unexpected. Thankfully our waiter was a complete delight with just enough friendly banter to make us feel welcome. The food was excellent. I would go back.
The food is good, the space delightfully quirky. The room was uncomfortably cold the day we went for brunch.
Chez Mamou is a delightful restaurant, especially when the weather is warm and one can sit on the outdoor terrace for brunch. Our hostess, who I believe is the owner, was charming, informative and very helpful. The brunch fare (egg dishes) was first rate as was the coffee, iced tea and ambience. On the picky side, the steak of the steak frites was nicely cooked but not of the tasty cut one might find in a French bistro and the sauce au poivre was somewhat bland. The moules were tasty (wonderful broth!), but somewhat overcooked. This said, having had several wonderful brunches there in the past, I might change my choice of entrees next time I go, but you couldn't keep me away! I recommend Chez Mamou highly. It's a Santa Fe gem.
