Incredible experience. Beautiful views to watch the sunset over the mountains. Our server, Amber, made amazing suggestions and was able to get us a porterhouse steak for two even though it wasn’t on the menu for that night. Steak, green chile mashed potatoes and asparagus were all delicious. Amber provided five star service as well as recommendations for things to do in Santa Fe. She is a real asset to Terra.

Welcome to America’s most breathtaking dining experience!

TEN 3 is perched atop the area’s distinct, burgeoning culinary landscape. Our menu features international, Mediterranean, New Mexican, and American dishes, all thoughtfully and responsibly prepared from scratch, emphasizing the unique flavors of the region, and locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. We strive for straightforward beauty in every dish with the hopes that each bite will create moments of communal joy you’ll want to return to time and time again.

About the restaurant
Prairie Star Restaurant and Wine Bar at Santa Ana Golf Club has offered an unforgettable dining experience since 1986. Housed in a renovated 100 year-old adobe ranch house, the warmth and intimacy of Prairie Star is intoxicating. You may absorb the NM Territorial atmosphere of handmade adobe walls, kiva fireplaces and full viga and latilla ceilings while enjoying awe-inspiring and sweeping views of the golf course and the Sandia Mountains.

Our culinary team masterfully creates stunning Contemporary New American cuisine with global influences and Executive Chef Myles Lucero changes our menu seasonally to reflect the time and freshest ingredients at hand. Each dish is carefully crafted from the finest ingredients, locally sourced when possible, and organic, sustainable and fair trade items preferred.

Prairie Star serves prix fixe menus on major holidays, and you can find details at prairiestarrestaurant.com. We are closed Christmas Day and New Years Day.

Wendell’s food, service and ambiance were, once again, absolutely outstanding! Our server, Gabriel, was professional, courteous and knowledgeable; the manager stopped by our table and welcomed us back; and the live music was spectacular — Gerardo Perez Capdevila treated us to numerous original compositions throughout our meal, earning a bounty of sincere applause. We will definitely return to Wendell’s!

Service was great by Augustine, the food from Chef Sean was amazing and it was impressive to see him going table to table greeting guests and asking about their experience. The ambiance was beautiful with the mountain and down town in the background!
