The food was not good !
The drinks were also not good
This restaurant is about a year old. How can a can a restaurant deliver the level of service and delicious food this one does given all the hurdles. Beats me, but they are doing it. We started with cocktails at the bar.Great atmosphere, comfy red leather stools. The bartenders (thanks Todd and crew) really know their stuff. Taking the time to dry shake their egg white drinks, wow. On to dinner. Tables well spaced, and they have a great HVAC system. Hamachi was melt in your mouth and autumn soup yummy. Wedge salad very good, maybe ramp up the blue cheese. Crab cake and steak delivered. Green chile mac and cheese also good, but again, ramp up the green chiles, people can take it. Sommelier (Julian) steered us to a great wine. Damien our waiter was excellent. Even the host/hostess at the front of the house were on it. Hats off to a complete experience.
Delicious birthday dinner for my dad and gracious accommodations for my disabled mom who needed to leave before we were done.
We had a nice dinner celebrating my husband’s birthday. First time there. Sat in the bar, at a table, which is very nice. Just the right size and activity. The menu has good variety but is not huge . All the food was delicious. The service was stellar!!!
We are so happy that you chose Palace Prime to celebrate, you were a pleasure to take care of, we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Beautiful bar area and great service!
Thank you Rick, we look forward to seeing you again.
Outstanding food and service. The lemon tiramisu was delicious.
Thank you for the kind words, we are so glad you enjoyed your visit.
Steak was not good and took over a hour to order our food
Hello Jarome, we are sorry to hear about your experience may we contact you to discuss further?
The food and service was wonderful as usual. My only issue was that it was my husband’s birthday and nothing special was done with the dessert.
Hi Betsy, thank you for coming in to see us, we are very sorry about missing the mark on your husbands birthday dessert. We do hope that we will see you back again soon.
First time we have been there and had a wonderful experience, beautiful ambiance, romantic, great food and an amazing gracious management that made us feel like we
were old and special friends!!!!
Hi Mike, we are thrilled that you had such a great time with us, it was great to take care of you, we look forward to more great experiences together at Palace Prime.
The Palace did not live up to my expectations of fine dining. With all of the wonderful choices in Santa Fe the Palace was average in all respects, food was not prepared as ordered, the service was below average and ambience nothing special.
Too many great options here in Santa Fe to return…
We are very sorry to hear about your lack luster experience with us. We strive each shift to do better than the last, we do hope that we will see you back for another chance and showing you how great Palace Prime really can be.
Best food in Santa Fe. Period. We just vacationed with friends for 4 nights and nothing topped this place.
Excellent service and food. Large portions, too. They split our salad and main course for us, no problem. We had escargot, a Caesar with whole anchovies (they ask if you want them), frites, and the duck breast. Plenty of food for us with no leftovers. Good bottle of wine recommended by the server, too.
As a child my boyfriend had many a family dinner in the red leather booths looking at the red, flocked velvet walls eating fabulous food. I mentioned this in my reservation. We were thrilled to be seated in the one booth with the crimson wall paper in this otherwise beautifully appointed, cozy, but comfortable-sleek contemporary space. Do not miss the horseradish infused, bread & butter pickle cocktail, perfect with the oysters on the half shell. They say Palace Prime is a seafood restaurant posing as a steakhouse—that was held true: fabulous branzino, dessert plate sized, minimal breading—all crab, crab cake and hamachi carpaccio. That being said, steak ain’t no slouch either. We will be back…often!
The Palace has and will always be a special place for locals, we are so happy that we were able to give you a great experience with a bit of nostalgia on the side. We look forward to seeing you back!
Great as always
Amazing as always. The Branzino was out of this world.
Great food and service and the best cocktails. My all around favorite restaurant in Santa Fe.
Our first time eating here (we are local). Had a perfectly awesome experience! The food was flawlessly executed -- we started with a dozen oysters, then split a wedge (best ever!!!), then split the surf (filet mignon) & turf (crab cake -- the BEST EVER!!!). We had help from the Sommelier who recommended a perfect wine for us, and we finished with a slice of chocolate bottom chess pie (AMAZING!!). Our server was Damien, who was friendly and attentive. It was a perfect night out!!! We will definitely be back :)
Great ambiance, excellent service, impressive wine list, and delicious food.
We were seated in the lounge area for dinner and it was great - jazz music playing in the background and an overall cool vibe to the whole room. We had excellent service with Aurora - she was friendly, knowledgeable, and had great timing and presence. We chose a yummy bottle of wine from the cabernet section of the wine book, which was served in beautiful long-stemmed glasses - perfect! Every item we chose was delicious - wild caught calamari, wedge salad, mushroom risotto, and the locally-sourced burger, PLUS a lemon tiramisu for dessert. Everything was excellent. Looking forward to dining there again soon.
Our food was good , not spectacular but good . I particularly enjoyed the steak.
I can’t tell you how delicious the steaks were! Well everything was delicious. But being a Texas girl, I have eaten my share of steaks haha! But the filet was outstanding and they accommodated me by putting a blue cheese crown on it for me. Wow! And the ribeye my husband had, was amazing. Seasoned and cooked perfectly. From the oysters on the half shell to the baked Brie, steaks and the chocolate chess pie, it made for a beautiful birthday celebration meal. Thanks Thomas for the great service! We will be back.
It was our anniversary and it was a perfect place to go! The steak was A-MAZING!!! The green chile Mac and cheese was A-MAZING! The server was A-MAZING! Will definitely go back for special occasions!
I'm having a hard time finding anything, in particular, to call out. The whole experience was delightful. The service was good, our waitress was attentive and had excellent timing. The food was delicious. The ambiance and music were nice (e.g., sophisticated lounge bar vibe). The only thing I could possibly critique is that the martinis seemed "like a light pour" not getting anywhere near the rim.
I can highly recommend for others like me who don't eat meat. The sea bass was outstanding.
Our waiter, Matt, was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list and made very helpful suggestions. Often difficult to find such a great waiter these days. We tried 2 wines new to us, per his recommendation, and they were terrific.
Very interesting cocktail (butcher's martini), perfectly cooked and presented filet mignon. This seems different from the old Palace Restaurant & Saloon I frequented for decades, different, but very good in its own way. A nice and distinctive revival.
Absolutely wonderful! Love the food, ambience and service! Julian has done a wonderful job with this restaurant!
Really wanted to Love this place! The steak was amazing! There are not enough sizes of steak for my choices. 14 oz rib eye, 14 oz strip and an 8 oz filet. The 8 oz filet was amazing. I would have also looked at a 10 oz strip if they had one. The aesthetics of the dinner plate was lacking. My 8 oz steak and a white cup of yellow beer aisle on a large white plate. No garnish or anything. Really stark. The wine list is eclectic but intimidating. Our waiter was not very knowledgeable about the wines. I ended up with a nice lower end priced Cabernet, but would have experimented with something else had the guidance been there. This place is really expensive. Over $300 for the two of us. For the money, I would probably look elsewhere. I will say the food was delicious!
Wonderful evening again!!! Great food & intimate dining experience and our waiter, Matthew, made it all the more. We’ll be back! 😊
Thank you all!! We will be back!! 🤩
Waiter couldn't seem to keep the drinks coming in a timely manner. Main dining room atmosphere was too sterile, modern and too lighted. My idea of a Prime steakhouse is dark and cozy. Bar atmosphere seemed better but we did not go in there. Food was better than just good but not very good.
Seated in bar which means bar area. Great ambiance
For the most part the restaurant was very good however our server did not manage his service skills very well. He was too overwhelmed. But the young lady that helped was so much more efficient in helping with our needs. I think she was a hostess. I just think the servers need back waiters or busses to help in a fine dining establishment.
The service was lovely. The bearnaise was a little gluey is but everything else was delicious. Have to say that the chairs in the bar seating are very uncomfortable because you can't lean back. I would sit in the regular dining room or at the actual bar next time.
We enjoyed a wonderful evening at Palace Prime! Exceptional cocktails, superb wine list, amazing staff, and every bite was delicious! Thank you.
Last evening at Palace Prime was the highlight of the summer months of dining. Everyone was kind and accommodating. Totally excellent experience!
First time visit. Calamari with dipping sauce was an absolute A+. The Rib Eye steak was ordered with the Chimayo Chile Rub, and cooked to perfection. I am a hearty eater, and I could not finish my steak as to how big it was, simply put, it was delicious.
I had to try the bread pudding, and WOW, once again, A+! Not cheap, but with the service, and quality of food, I'll be going back.
very pricey. food was good tho. bar server gal was a bit casual--dress and attention.
the bar atmosphere felt a bit lack luster. low energy...altho it was early. hoping that changes as nights wear on. maybe some amuse bouche to get folks chatting/energy increase??? hope you all stay open... front porch could use a bit of energy too...tables??? hanging baskets/lights---not too flowery but giving the illusion of "open for business!!!"
Palace Prime is very well managed. The menu is superb, service was fabulous, and the wine selection was perfect for us.
Service was great and food too! It was a nice dining experience.
We visited with two friends on a Sunday evening in September when Santa Fe is much quieter. Decor and ambiance were excellent; table spacing and dividers helped make the experience more personal and felt good w/r/t Covid. Waitstaff was professional, personable, and knowledgeable. It seemed a bit understaffed compared to pre Covid times but they held up well, if a bit slow, as the evening progressed.
Cocktails were innovative and delicious although you should review the ingredients carefully to be sure you are okay with horseradish or sweetness levels. My Okah bitters drink was perfect for summer and not sweet as desired.
Lots of gluten free choices made our GF friend happy; wait staff and kitchen are very careful to keep GF items “clean.” Food was very good with reasonable portions and the best crab cake I have had off the East Coast. The ribeye was tender and cooked perfectly.
We really didn’t have room for dessert but splurged on the goat cheese Cheesecake-it was dense and tart. The aperitif vermouth was unique and a bit addictive. We will be back!
Is a real Fine cuisine with a very fine service. From the host to the waitress to the food to the amenities, made me think of what a Fine restaurant should be. A Green Chile Mac and cheese to die for🤤.
