The name Zacatlán surged from the origins of our chef, Eduardo Rodriguez. He was born in Zacatecas, Mexico (north-central Mexico), which is defined as "the habitants of the land where grass grows". Zacatlán is the nahuatl translation for "land with an abundance of grass", and that is where our idea of Zacatlán Restaurant began.

Zacatlán Restaurant desires to continue to preserve the traditions for our upcoming generations, while bringing forth new flavors. These new flavors incorporate Southwestern and Mexican influences. We are established near the Santa fe Plaza, right off of Guadalupe Street. We want to unveil a new fusion of food for everyone in Santa Fe and those who visit.

                                            My wife’s chicken and waffles was served to fry to ear. She tried and then returned it to the kitchen. Our waitress offered to get a different dish which we didn’t do. Upon returning to our table our waitress explained that the chef told her that this is how he made it. No apology. I guess to prove the point, the restaurant charged us for her meal and offered nothing. After getting over the initial shock, we paid the bill and left. Poor waitress….

                                            Excellent service, and eclectic menu. Wine is the only alcoholic beverage served—a short list, but a good one. Food is a bit on the rich side—good for sharing.

                                            What a lovely evening. Quaint place, friendly service and a really interesting menu. This is a little gem in SF - authentic Mexican food, from the interior of Mexico - not the TexMex stuff. Fish, lamb, beef, vegetarian options and very interesting salads and starters. Enough to share among all at table - portions are generous. Nice wine list too. Beautifully presented and extremely fresh. This food is prepared by people who know their ingredients and how to prepare complex dishes. Please go and try this restaurant. It's a real treat.

                                            The menu for "brunch" had lots of options and prices were reasonable. The mole black bean enchiladas were wonderful. My companion loved her tacos El Pastor. And the tomatillo salsa that came with the fresh made tortilla chips had just enough, but not too much heat.

                                            We ordered the following: Bone Marrow ($20)love the combination of esquites,marrow, and slight sweetness of the toast Squash Blossoms ($20)- fried blossoms, shrimp, cream, hint of curry - very good Cochinita Pibil ($38) - looked amazing with the bone. Pork was very tender but plain bland. We were hoping that the mole will save the pork but unfortunately the complex mole flavor is absent and the consistency is thin. This rendition of the revered pork dish is disappointing to say the least.

                                            I should say it was terrible to keep this quiet gem quiet and under-hyped, but it was superb service and food. The porch was great--fresh air but no wind. The mole was outstanding.

                                            The staff was a delight and couldn't have been nicer! The short ribs were not available and several people ordering that night were disappointed, however the short ribs were switched for filet which was excellent! We thought the Ceviche was delicious however really need a little bit more flavor, I really wanted to ask for a couple of limes to squeeze over the top to enhance. Overheard another person at a different table say the same thing. Overall very good and again the staff was fantastic

                                            This was my second visit to Zacatlan, and the food is very impressive and delicious. I did feel that the price for dinner was high and the wine list could be better. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The building is historic and rustic, which fits the cuisine and appeals to me. I have enjoyed lunch there previously and my next visit would probably be daytime rather than dinner.

                                            We had dinner our first night at Zacatlan - wow- what a great way to start a vacation! The food was absolutely delicious.

                                            We always enjoy coming back to this restaurant. The food and service are great. We like sitting on the indoor/outdoor patio. There are heat lamps if needed. The food has always been good. I like the menu, flavors, presentation, and the unique take on some of the dishes you'd be used to. I have noticed improvements since our last visit and definitely look forward to going back again.

                                            This was one of the best meals I have had. I was excited to try after reading it was a James beard nominated best new restaurant. My server’s recommendations were excellent. The red snapper was so unusual and very delicious. I LOVED it. I can’t wait to return.

                                            We ordered the bone marrow for appetizer, the duck confit, and lamb barbacoa for our entrees and everything was amazing! Friendly staff, and the aesthetics were really appealing. I highly recommend for anyone coming to Santa Fe!

                                            Zacatlan is a small restaurant that delivers in a big way. The poached pair salad, the ceviche, and all 3 entrees our party of 3 enjoyed were excellent. We were impressed from the moment we sat down to complementary small flutes of cava (ordered a full glass since it was so good). The bread pudding with saffron ice cream and cardamom whipped cream also a winner. Our only disappointment was they ran out of the Robin’s Egg dessert, which we saw another diner get extreme enjoyment out of. We will be back soon and hope we can try the Robin’s Egg next time. One of the best dinners we have had in a long time!

                                            First off, the service was amazing. The wait staff was well trained, knowledgeable about the menu and very prompt. The food came out fast. Food portions were quite large, too large perhaps for our palettes. The food was beautifully presented and creative. However, it did not really have that depth of flavor that made a lasting impression on us. This was true of all four menu items we ordered. Had the ingredients been of higher quality, this restaurant would rate as one of the best in Santa Fe.
