First time back since the chef and Menu changed. The new menu is boring and the food this evening was awful (despite it costing $200+). Wouldn't go back again or recommend it.
Also, the noise level made it impossible to have a conversation. Several tables of drunk people and a very loud private party all going on at the same time. Awful experience all-in-all!

Good food. Ambiance was not there. Noise level was annoying and air condition ducts were on full blast.
Won't be going back. To many other choices in Santa Fe.

Why drive all the way to Santa Fe for a great meal when you’re staying at Buffalo Thunder? Don’t let the hostess seat you at a tiny table and your on the way to a great meal. All around relaxing, good service and well presented high quality food. Enjoy.

Took way too long to order. They were out of the meal we chose...so we had to wait again to order. Steak was over cooked and risotto over done a swell. Had to continuously ask for items such as a salt shaker, sweetener, bread etc. Waiter seemed distracted and not thinking ahead for our needs. Never was offered a tea refill. Very disappointed! Way over priced for the type of service we received. Never again.

This is a steak restaurant and the meat quality is not as expected for the price. Seasonal vegetables were only okay and preparation was nothing special. Sides are a la carte $6 and the bill quickly adds up for an average meal. Drinks were slow and we had to chase down other waitstaff for salt, etc. because our waiter was nowhere to be found. Brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes are good.

Below average service. Jose knew very little about the wine list. Wine we selected was unavailable. Picked another that we were familiar with. The sommelier came to our table AFTER dinner! The salmon entree was just not good. It was swimming in puréed black beans that were “smoky” in flavor. One of our party was allergic to that smoky flavor. No mention of that in the description. The ancho GLAZE was actually a thick BBQ-type sauce that smothered the salmon. Not a tasty entree and visually unappealing. What WAS a favorite Santa Fe dining experience is off the list.

Great place overall. Food was AMAZING! Service was a 9 out of 10! It’s a bit loud in there since there is not much of a barrier between the seating area and the hallway out to the rest of he resort. But well worth the money and time.

Will absolutely be coming back to Red Sage!! First off our waiter was outstanding, wish I could remember his name. The wine we choose was out of this world from the help of our waiter. The food phenomenal. I would highly recommend the filet mignon. Cut like butter. Go go go to Red Sage.

The electricity went off for over an hour. We were told they were not serving hot food for a bit so we waited at the bar. We were told they would come get us. They did not so we finally asked again and were seated but that it was only cold food. This was not true. Come to find out many tables had been served hot food for a while before we were seated.

The waiter was great once we got to him but no apologies for the hour wait or misinformation from management.

Unfortunately it’s the only real restaurant in the hotel so we will try again tonight as their food is really good.
It’s not a direct fault of the restaurant but it could have been handled way better.

Just simply great food/service. Yes, it is between seasons so the menu is smaller which is understandably. We had Bison steaks and Salmon. Bison was tender as it can be. Salmon was fresh and with reasonable size. Wine choices are huge. Service are great, highly recommend this restaurant when you are in Santa Fe area. Worth a drive.

This was our second(and last) time to try Red Sage. Both times we were greeted by an off-putting and rude female at the reception station. This time we were told we didn't have a reservatio(!), even after I showed the woman the reservation confirmation in my Open Table e-mail. Just plain nasty, un-friendly for no apparent reason. We had requested a nice, quiet table because it was a special occasion. She instead gave us perhaps the worst table in the restaurant. I asked to speak to the manager. The manager, a youngish woman, apologized and moved us to an only slightly better table. Our server, an older gentleman was slow but courteous.I am writing a complaint to the General Manager, Mark Allgeier. This is no way to treat customers. Also, the smell of stale cigarette smoke is very evident on this restaurant floor of the casino and very un-appetizing (not to mention un-healthy). We won't be back!

The service and staff were very good. The menu needs a lot of help. Its the same menu from the time they opened many years ago. Its so boring! There are only four entrees, and a selection of steaks. The people at the table next to ours told me not to order them. I ordered the bass, it was done very well but this is New Mexico, Bass, game hen, risotto and steak is not an exciting menu. The desert needed help too.

We went with expectations of what was listed as available on-line(I.e. that we could order what was on the website's menu). The actual menu was not consistent with what was on the website. Consequently, I had to settle for a game hen instead of the duck I had gotten excited about. The game hen was good and flavorful, but was just a game hen and hard to mess up. We didn't feel it was worth the value, regardless of the amount of herbaceous attenuation.

The sea bass, on the other hand, was exceptional. The skin was crisp on every bite and the creamy risotto added to the buttery flesh achieved on the fish.

The red pepper sauce went really well with the fritters.

Finally, if you want a chocolate dessert, get the cake.
