We had a reservation for 6:30. When we arrived we were informed that "the kitchen was behind" and we would have to wait for our table. 30 minutes later we received a text message that if we were not going to honor our reservation we needed to cancel??? Seems like we had never been checked in as we actually arrived 10 minutes early. We were sitting right in the bar area and the hostess could see us. We were finally were seated about 40 minutes late. We were waited on right away but it took a very long time to get our food and one of the orders was incorrect but we just let it pass as we did not want to wait any longer since three of the orders were correct. The food was good but having to wait so long to be seated when we had a confirmed reservation pretty much spoiled the evening for us.

We made a reservation for 6:15 to celebrate the wife's and my birthday. We arrived a little before six since we had to drive from Anthem. I checked in with the hostess and was told I had to wait until my reservation time. We waited near the hostess station and at 6:15 I checked in again. She told me I had a choice of a small table in the main hallway entrance next to the hostess standard or wait another 30 plus minutes for a table. The hostess was sitting others what did not have a reservation over people that had a OpenTable reservation. Based on her comments we left since we did not want to wait another 30+ minutes. We always enjoyed the food when the Fiesta Henderson was open. Based on this experience we have no plans to ever return to this restaurant. They ruined an evening for both of us.

They were not able to process my $10 rewards card I printed it out so how do I get it back to use on my next reservation?

Idiot Leticia for years when I was in the other location. IV not to Santa Fe Leticia several times in the service and the food was excellent. Unfortunately this time my food was burnt and I still end up being paying full price regardless of what I commented on.

BEWARE

Sante Fe still has smokers through out. Smells stale.
And we have to put our close in the washer upon return home in order not to smell up the house.

Had to take an early morning shower as I could smell the smoke in my hair.

We are x-smokers and know it stinks.

We were the second group seated right at opening. It took over 45 minutes to get our food. There was definitely an issue with the cooking staff. Several patrons complained about the long wait and some receiving cold food.

I learned from the waitress that half of the kitchen staff was in training. Not good!

Terrible... just terrible. A fajita with canned mushrooms that cost $23 is just plain embarrassing in the culinary world.

We were given a happy hour menu with cocktails listed on it. We ordered an appetizer OFF this menu. Showed the server what we wanted, pointed to the menu and ordered. It said there would be two (of said appetizer). If was after 9:00 PM so we were expecting the happy hour price. It arrived, three on the plate. I'm not sure with the size of the food ordered why two people would eat what looked like a full entrée and a half before dinner entrees arrived.

We won't discuss our reservations and the way hostess podium attendants addressed us. I can only guess that restaurant patrons treat them terribly, because expectations from us as patrons by them were minimal. "We'll send you a text and note that you're here (half hour early)". I'm still waiting for the text to come to my table!

Server told me that my fajita would take at least 20 minutes as the "kitchen was backed up" after 9:00 PM. Can't imagine how they would have been if the restaurant was busy.

We were seated at 9:03 PM. Appetizer came at 9:24 PM. Dinner entree's came about 9:45 PM, glad that fajita took the aforementioned 20 minutes!!!

We were not the only guests that evening inquiring about the happy hour appetizer menu. Upon leaving we heard another guest make the same inquiry. Server told us there was "nothing he could do about it."

I'm not sure what bothered me more, there was so much wrong with this whole experience. I'm shocked that a fajita, in a restaurant such as this, used canned mushrooms and charges in excess of $20 for this plate. Fajitas are easy to make in a restaurant especially when you already receive fresh produce, at least one would think.

La Cabo was better, this place and everything about it was disappointing. The atmosphere was loud, service was not attentive, food not fresh... and there was four tables in the room when we were seated.

TERRIBLE SERVICE!!. Seated for 20 minutes. Never acknowledged but waiter kept looking in our direction. Only approached after we notified the hostess. Waiter “LUIS” never apologized and seemed to be bothered. The manager “ERIKA” addressed us and apologized and asked if she could bring us anything. We asked her for some chips and beans and SHE never came back. We are locals and have a million choices. We have always loved the food but this Sunday, the staff at Leticia’s didn’t seem to care about their customers. One might expect mishaps if the restaurant was busy but this was not the case. On several occasions staff was observed standing together looking at their cell phones, talking and laughing. We were very disappointed and may consider other options for the future.

We love our locals and very much appreciate their continued support! Please Allow me to clarify the issues that were assumed in your statement: There was some miscommunication between our front hostess and server in regard to the high top table you were seated in, once made aware of our mistake we sought to quickly resolve the issue.
