We love Horno! The food and service are consistently top-level, and we always enjoy ourselves. On this visit, we split four appetizers and ordered dessert to take home. There was a DWI checkpoint on our way home, and we told them we had had one beer at dinner. They wanted to know what else we had for dinner. We recited everything we ordered at Horno, and they smiled and let us pass. They seemed to be especially interested in the eggplant dish. Don't Drink (too much) and Drive!

La Plazuela was the hotel’s original 1920s patio and it retains that sunlit Old World charm. Skylights flood the dining room with natural light and handsome carved furnishings, artisanal lighting, and our much-loved hand painted windows create a beautiful, inviting room to gather, to dine and to make memories in. The menu was crafted to showcase old favorites with New World influences and authentic New Mexican cuisine. La Plazuela at La Fonda on the Plaza is Santa Fe’s gathering place. Come dine with us!

My mom and I had a wonderful dinner celebrating our birthdays at La Plazuela last night. Efrain was our server, and he made the evening 5 stars! He was kind, friendly, gave us great recommendations, and brought us champagne and a brownie to celebrate our birthdays! The food and atmosphere was amazing too.

As always, everything was excellent; freshly prepared and innovative Continental food with a NM twist. Great ambience, and we love to sit outside next to the bubbling fountains. Service is fabulous.

About the restaurant
SPIRITED DINING AND DRINKS IN SANTA FE

In 1882, Abraham Staab, a European immigrant who became one of Santa Fe’s most prosperous merchants, built a Victorian mansion on property that now belongs to La Posada. Abraham’s elegant wife, Julia, entertained local society and visiting dignitaries in incomparable style. Legend has it that Julia so loved her home that she has never left it.

Today, we celebrate Julia Staab as our muse and honor her name and legendary hospitality with the opening of Julia, A Spirited Restaurant & Bar. The restaurant features innovative, locally sourced dishes as well as an extensive selection of fine wines and spirits.

We recall this spot under prior management as a lively “go to” with some casual entertainment (Spanish guitar or native flute). A bit too quiet and not festive. Food and service was very good.
