Long wait for drinks, had to reorder drinks 3 times because the bar kept running out of ingredients. Food order wrong for two ppl in party. Meals delivered to table with cold side dishes. Very disappointing for my first visit, will not return nor recommend.
Took 2 hours to get food
Try food was over cooked. The place was empty but it took a long time
First time here and overall really enjoyed it! The drinks were great and the food was even better. Can’t wait to go back!
I took my girlfriend for her birthday the wait staff was very helpful the environment was friendly and clean! Top Notch service and food I would go back to eat there any time for any occasion!
Service is good, staff is friendly, but food was somewhat tasteless.
Victoria was outstanding! Once she heard it was my birthday she served us a free dessert! Yummy
Miss the Union Street location. Somehow Newark did not seem quite as good.
Food was amazing! Fast and courteous service!
Great food and great drinks. Very good atmosphere for relaxing with friends.
The location was ok, food was mediocre, and service less than expected. We made a reservation on open table and we were seated beside the busy kitchen door even though more desirable tables were empty. My water glass went empty and numerous wait staff continued to walk by it without notice even though they were not busy.
Great food. Brought folks from Mexico there and they said it was authentic cuisine. Waiter was super friendly, super busy with everyone else, yet managed to attend to all of our needs. Huge portions.Fantastic place all around.
Best Mexican food in the mid-Atlantic region Not your typical Tex-Mex options but rather authentic Mexican cuisine.
They don't accept same day reservations, even though they have the option on open table
Fish tacos were pretty good.
Excellent food and service. We were all very pleased with our first visit. We will definitely return.
Good food but very very good service. College crowd mostly. Nice place to try.
Poor service, tried to call and make a reservation and wa sinformed that I couldn't make one by calling, only by using the online service. finally made a reservation for 6:45 online and wasn't seated until 7:30 Felt like I was being jerked around and that making a reservation should not be so difficult especially when it was pointless to make the reservation. Will definitely pick a different restaurant next time
Ally was our wonderful server. Had a couple hiccups with my cranky order - not a big problem. Nice assists from other staff members when the entrees came out.
Kudos to Matt the manager for a good staff, friendly atmosphere and a good meal.
Sat at high tops in the bar, no real good place for coats as the chairs had no backs. The high tops themselves are in need of replacements, we met Matt when he came around to shim the tables.
We went for Sunday brunch. The breakfast burritos were tasty with fresh ingredients.
I would go back.
Santa Fe has consistently good food. A suggestion is to upgrade the decor to compete with other good options on Main St
Went for Parent's Weekend at UDel. We had reservations for four people. Our table was ready when we arrived - only draw back was being seated in the back, near the kitchen - hoped for better with making reservations weeks in advance. Our server was nice and food was good. Fun main street location.
Servers were great and very attentive. Food was just ok (chips, salsa/guacamole best part of meal). Restaurant could be cleaner/tidier...things like brooms and signage were left out in the hall/dining area. Ambiance could be improved in the back room section (maybe lower the lights for dinner), and it was very noisy in this back room section as well.
Neither the food nor the service was very good. Happy hour prices on margaritas brought them in plastic cups, tacky. Chimichurro burrito had an unrecognizable orange tinted cream drizzled on top. Entrees come with nothing, simply a burrito on a plate. Chips & salsa were good, only highlight of the meal. Server continually forgot to bring requested items - e.g. glasses of water. Server distributed food/drinks incorrectly resulting in a bunch of switching cups & plates around the table which is annoying.
Guac is a must here. Love the Sangarita too!
First time eating dinner at this restaurant, and it was really great! We will definitely go back. Lots of great items on the menu, our selections were fantastic, and the service was world class. Thanks for the great dining experience!
This place is always jammed - now I know why. Great drinks, fresh, flavorful food (including my favorite Carnitas), and sitting outside on a gorgeous Saturday night made for s bead perfect meal. Salsa that comes with the free chips is home made and has a kick - very tasty. Margaritas are fresh and tasty - went down easy on a warm day. We will definitely be back.
Santa Fe always has good food and the drinks are delicious!
Stopped in on a Friday night with friends and enjoyed margaritas and dinner. Drinks came quick and we all enjoyed our meals. The service is always friendly and quick. The manager stopped by to check in on us. Overall great night.
Santa Fe has been my favorite Mexican restaurant for years now. Nothing beats their golden chimichangas on a day when you just want to indulge! I have taken many friends here and everyone loves the food, ALWAYS! Their margaritas are great too and the servers are always friendly. Save some room for dessert coz they have the most amazing Nutella crepes(I always get coffee ice cream in mine). And if you go here for the first time, they bring you a complimentary appetizer! Yummmmmmmm
The most creative and sure-fire mexican we've had in years....fresh fish, nachos to die for with an amazing white sauce, and of course a golden margarita topped it all off. Parents weekend expected a rush but fit the bill for this foodie family!
Love the food. Terrific, friendly bartenders!! They even brought us a comp dessert as we celebrated a special occasion.
The food was really good! I don't like beans but the black beans are really really good and have nice kick. The cheese dip has a nice smoky flavor that went nicely with the beans and flat bread. My kids loved the fries but didn't care for the tacos. They thought they were too dry and not spicy enough (Note they eat their tacos plan w/ just cheese). I had the enchiladas , they were not the best I ever had but in the top 10. The verde sauce was not as spicy as I'm use too. My husband had the burrito, he said it was the best he ever had.
We went here for Mother's Day brunch and had a wonderful time. Mom enjoyed her $1 mimosa - a Mother's day special. Our server was outstanding. Food was fresh, delicious and a great value. We look forward to returning.
It wasn't a great experience for a first time visit. A plate of nachos supreme cost $14 for a decent amount, but meat was extra, sour cream (a tiny bit) was extra. Mostly chips, little else. Our food arrived before our drinks, long wait, not that crowded, no excuse. Friendly server? No. Barely spoke. Overall: Cheap ingredients, too high prices. Many other Mexican restaurants give you good food, larger portions for less money. Chains seem to overprice. Won't waste time or money going back. Much more to offer elsewhere.
Definitely try the queso and wings for an appetizer. the food was delicious. Service was top notch for a main street college town. If you're visitng UDel, stop here to eat.
Probably the best chimichanga I've ever had. Will go back to try a margarita!!
Good food, good service. A little noisy but overall a very enjoyable experience. We will be back.
The food, ambiance and décor were most satisfactory, but the thing that made the dining experience stand out as extraordinary, was our server, EMILY. She was never without a smile; she was a big help with our selection of food; throughout the meal she attended to empty water glasses without our even noticing her comings and goings. She made sure our every need was taken care of - always with a smile on her face. You can have the best food in the world, but if the server is unpleasant, the meal is worthless. Our dining experience was a joy. THANK YOU, EMILY.
Definitely recommend making a reservation because we had a 30 minute wait when we didn't have one, and when we did have one we got seated immediately. The food is really good. Some of the best Tex-Mex we've found. The service is pretty good. We had one waitress who took time to explain items on the menu and make suggestions. But be prepared to deal with a crowd of college students. It appears to be a popular University of Delaware hangout. We've often encountered large, loud groups of students who are there to have a good time.
