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.

    We went to Zacatlan with some friends for dinner . We started with a poached pear salad and the Caesar salad. They are both delicious. Then I had the tortilla crusted Chile rellenos. It was one of the most delicious rellenos I have ever had . Everything in it was incredible. My husband had the melt in your mouth lamb barbacoa. Our friend had the cochinitq pibil. We finished with the best churros that we dipped in the delicious cajeta sauce . The wines by the glass are very well priced and a good selection If you want to eat excellent Mexican food go to Zacatlan.

    A must try if you are visiting and a staple if you are local. Truly delicious food. I have been for brunch and they have the best Chilaquiles in town, and for dinner I had the Cochinita Pibil which was amazing! The tamal the olla was exceptional! The service was just the cherry on top, I haven't received such great service in town in a while. Definitely will be coming back.

    The ambience was great, the service was spot on, wine recommendations were lovely - we had a wonderful time! Definitely get the squash blossoms stuffed with crayfish - that was the standout for our meal and paired beautifully with a glass of Albariño

    What great food and service! The pulpo starter was superb as were the duck confit and beef short rib entrees. The flourless chocolate cake was a wonderful way to finish up. Our excellent waiter gave us just the right amount of attention and the pace of the meal was perfect. Zacatlan turned out to be a great place to spend an evening with good friends.

    Zacatlan was amazing food. It isn't cheap, but every dish was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Our server was attentive and friendly without being intrusive. My only "complaint" is that too many items looked attractive and we could only eat so many things. I will definitely return!

    We all loved the food - my 8 year old son called it a 'hidden gem' as we had the dining room to ourselves. We even went back a couple of days later and think that anyone visiting SF and wanting delicious, interesting, fresh and healthy Mexican food should visit Zacatlan.

    Fabulous food. The night we dined, the crowd was sparse suggesting that others have yet to find Zacatlan. The dishes were complex and creative, in the same league as Sazon and Restaurant Martin. The 16 hour ribs, pork belly carnitas, and the churros were particularly outstanding.

    Avoid this restaurant. The food was absolutely awful! My duck legs confit was days old, overcooked and tasteless. The stuffed squash blossoms were over fried and barely edible. Worse $150.00 I have ever spent. Should of complained and sent everything back but my wife did not want me to make a scene. Avoid this restaurant!

    Dining in the patio was a delight. Originally a group of four they easily accomodated all six of us. Food was fabulous. Especially enjoyed the squash blossom starter, the cochinita pibil, the snapper and the branzino. Staff was lovely. Would definitely return and recommend to others.

    The menu did not match what was listed online. We wanted a light dinner of their tacos but instead full entrees were offered. Ordered the Cesar salad which came with hot soft croutons which wilted the romaine. Dressing was not very tasty. Only wine and beer and strangely no iced tea which would have been refreshing on a warm day. Would not return

    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….
