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.

    The polpo appetizer was superb—perfectly grilled and served with potatoes and relishes that complemented beautifully. It would be a nice meal in itself. The lamb shank barbacoa was also good—a bit spicy—but it couldn’t stand up to the excellent and tasty octopus. Portions are large. The service was attentive, friendly, and efficient. Next time, I’ll order two appetizers and skip the main course. The appetizers are more appealing.

    They need to store their white wine in the cooler. We ordered a bottle of Russian River Chardonnay and they pulled it out of a cupboard. We asked for a bucket of ice. But it would have been better chilled. We shared the whole red snapper and a Cesar Salad. Both were exceptional. The other couple order the Branzino and we’re not happy. Attentive service. Nice quiet atmosphere.

    Delicious first time dinner on the night of Zozobra so the restaurant was quieter than normal. Sat on the quaint covered patio. Service was excellent and we were first greeted with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. Yellowtail ceviche was so fresh and the bone marrow hot, delicious and an ample portion. Duck confit (2 legs) and the fish Al pastor also did not disappoint. All dishes perfectly seasoned. Was so excited to see excellent wines from Valle Guadalupe Mexico region on the menu. We couldn’t pass up ordering a bottle. Definitely a new favorite of ours in Santa Fe.

    My husband and I dined at Zacatlan on Sunday 08/28. I had the Pulpo as an appetizer and my husband had the Bone Marrow. We loved them both. The Pulpo (Octopus)was outstanding. It was tender and cooked to perfection. I had the Duck confit with the poblano mole. The duck was fall off the bone wonderful, but I was a little disappointed with the mole; not as flavorful as I had expected. My husband had the Short ribs which were served already off the bone and the meat appeared to be super tender and shredded. We both really enjoyed our meals and since we are local we will return to try some of the other wonderful items on the menu. I also very much loved the Spanish Albarino I had to accompany my meal. We thought the prices were right in line with the quality of the food.

    I have visited Santa Fe many times over the years, and this restaurant was apparently hiding in plain sight. I appreciated the simple, authentic atmosphere, and a smaller menu with something to please anyone. Don’t miss the Cochinita Pibil- it was beyond compare. Better than my favorite place in Cozumel. The Branzino was perfectly prepared. Caring and attentive service. Lovely selection of wines by the glass. Compliments to the chef and staff for our enjoyable experience.

    We dined on a Wednesday evening and it was quiet. We were seated near an open door. The portions of food were generous. I had grilled vegetables with a sauce for an appetizer. Main course was the fried Red Snapper and all four of us shared a flourless chocolate cake and the Robin’s egg. My husband had the lamb shank. Everyone raved about the food. Service was relaxed and slow which we liked.

    We are in Santa Fe with friends for Indian Market. As former residents of Santa Fe I know that Santa Fe has many excellent restaurants. Without question, Zacatlan was the best dining experience we had during our visit. The service was among the best I've ever experienced. The appetizers, main entrees and desserts were superb; the presentation beautiful and the flavors were perfect. This is a short review because I can find nothing to say other than this was a wonderful experience and is definitely one of Santa Fe's best restaurants. We will be back.
