Lovely atmosphere, great and attentive e staff and serviced the food ROCKS!
Without a doubt, one of the best restaurants in Santa Fe. Subtle sauces, fish, game and meats cooked to perfection, inventive desserts all show that eating basically anything off the menu is a delight. This cozy intimate restaurant has a charming setting, with open air tables for al fresco dining or a beautifully designed interior and attentive wait staff. Ample parking up and down the street and behind the restaurant makes for one of the nicest dining experiences in town. The menu shows what truly great food of the Americas can be. Highly recommended!
Not your everyday menu items; food was delicious and service was great.
I will dream of kale Caesar and tamale for a long time. Also the inspiring decor.
40th bday. We had the BEST waiter (Matthew) and they had delicious spicy margaritas. I’d recommend the Lamb. They participate in the margarita trail and actually know what is going on with the program (unlike some of the more upscale bars).
Fantastic ambiance in a quiet area but still just a few minutes off the square. The lamb two ways was exquisite and the appetizer tacos were tasty and almost a meal themselves. Will definitely return next time we come to Santa Fe.
Not your Typical new Mexican food. Nothing spectacular, just good food, great service, beautiful ambience.
We were very excited about trying Maize because we have eaten at Bouche and were looking forward to another one of his restaurants. It was not a good experience. We have been dining in Santa Fe for the past 20 years three times a year and we were EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED. We were greeted by Staff members that were not familiar with the routine of a nice dining experience. Our waiter took some time before he ordered our drinks and only took 1/3 of the table’s drink orders. We had to call hin back to our table to complete the order. Our water glasses were never refilled without us requesting them to do so. Everyone’s food was cold and our medium rare steak had to be returned because it was well done. We also ordered salads that were never delivered to the table. We asked them to remove the salads from the bill when we asked for our bill. This was an unfortunate experience because we were very excited about dining at a fairly new place in Santa Fe. Unfortunately, we all felt that Maize would not make it in Santa Fe if the level of service and food experience we had continued. We would LOVE for them to attempt to reorganize their staff to a more mature level of dining and this would possibly help.
Everything from good-looking our faces were the grilled octopus and trout- to our lovely server to the pretty and comfortable dining room was so enjoyable. Highly recommended!
Had lunch on the patio - their 2nd day offering lunch
The soft tacos were fantastic!
The patio is lovely...with various sun/shade exposures
The seats were hard but otherwise comfortable. Hope they get cushions
We are here from North Carolina and loved this place. Mark, our waiter, is awesome. Get the fish in the banana leaf.
It was the first day they served lunch. We had a lovely time and everything went smoothly. We will be back!
Unfortunately the bone in steak was tough with way too much fat. Loved the setting and staff was great but menu needs work.
Excellent meal. Food was very good, service was very good and ambience was really nice. Highly recommended.
Outstanding. A great recommendation! Can’t wait to go back!! Thanks Maize for a memorable evening on a beautiful May night in Santa Fe.
Started off our evening with two fabulous cocktails, then a wonderful meal all delivered by a warm competent team. Chef Dale never disappoints!
Excellent food and service!
Food great as usual. Wonderful presentation
Our second time dining at Maize, and nearly perfect - food, service, ambience. Loved the blinis and seviche as shared starters. My companions had the trout, which was wonderful (don’t fail to enjoy the crispy skin), as were my lamb chops and the asparagus and potatoes that came with them. Also beautifully shareable are the very inventive desserts. We shared the “forest floor” (fun, creative, delicious) and found the cappuccino and espresso to be equally excellent.
Did not disappoint. Awesome menu with ample portions. Next time I’m saving room for dessert!
Pleasantly surprised by how great the food was. Took a chance on this place for our anniversary and we both loved it.
Bar service was great. Waitress was very busy and very slow.
Since I live in Santa Fe and restaurants come and go, wanted to try. The presentation of the food was quite good and prepared to our satisfaction. I think it is overpriced but that goes along with Santa Fe eateries in general. Service was good and I probably will return. They have created a nice menu and certainly it is an improvement over the last two restaurants that occupied this space.
We loved Maize. The food was superb, the service exceptional. Don’t miss it. We had the kale and Caesar salad and smoked trout blinis for appetizers, followed by the duck tamale, which included a duck leg confit for our main courses (yes, we each had our own and were so glad not to have to share). We topped it off with the Dreamcatcher dessert which was sublime. The setting is lovely. We’ll definitely go again next visit
Try it! Server Matthew was wonderful. We found the appetizers to be a bit overpriced for what we got, but the main courses were well priced and gorgeous to look at, and fantastic to eat. We did enjoy the elk carpaccio appetizer. Our great meals we had were the Kobe meatloaf and the trout. We would definitely return.
Kitchen Angels benefit - enjoyed everything
Small portions, large prices! Vegetarian items good.
Inventive, delicious food made even better by a lovely Ambience and a knowledgeable server. Our server was friendly, attentive, and knew all about the wines on their extensive list.
Lovely imangined south west food, very nice
We had dinner here on a girls' weekend trip a couple of days ago. It was an incredible experience that's fit for foodies. They were accommodating about my friend's substitution request. Both our entrees turned out great. Loved their Rice Pudding Creme Brulee (black rice pudding with a layer of creme brulee on top and finished off with the usual caramelized crust. It was not super sweet which suited us fine. Creative decor, attentive and friendly service! Nice job, Maize!
I was really very surprised in the change in food quality since the last time we dined at Maize. Our first experience was excellent and I was extremely excited to go back. I had the same appetizer and main dish and the taste and quality was markedly different. The pork in the Caldo Verde was burned and had a bitter charred taste and the dish was cold. It was disappointing as the first time I had the dish it was a knockout. I will try again because the service is still excellent and clearly they are capable of turning out great food but I will be hoping for a repeat of that first experience.
Great food, everything from wine to apps to entrees overpriced.
Lovely restaurant. Lovely server. We ate starters rather than entrees and they were all delicious! I especially enjoyed the ash tamale with shrimp. It was delicious. Wine was excellent. We had a long, stressful travel day and our quiet dinner at Maize was a good ending to the day.
We have eaten at Maize several times. The food is consistently good and innovative. Our service was excellent. There is a quite good but not very extensive wine list. Recommended.
Excellent food in a creative setting. Would definitely return and recommend to friends. Food was very innovative.
Ordered 5 different apps as none of us are hungry enough to order a full entree. Tapas style for us, and it was delicious. Very small quaint dining room.
REACHED A NEW LEVEL in food, service and ambience // Evening was A-Maize-ing // Best meal ever at Maize from start to finish // Some courses came out as works of art and tastes of the dishes were at an equally high level //
Great dining experience // The soup, octopus, trout and duck were stunning //
Our new favorite restaurant! Perfect!!!!! Food, ambiance, service wine were all 5 star and the dessert was 10!!!!!
One of the finest dining experiences available today in Santa Fe. Service, atmosphere and cuisine combine to make an exceptional evening. Highly recommended.
