We really enjoyed our time at Santa Fe Steakhouse. We were there to celebrate my son's high school graduation. We had a reservation for 5 pm, but that wasn't really necessary. It wasn't busy at all, I guess because it was early. We arrived and we greeted right away and we also seated right away. We started with a spinach artichoke appetizer which was delicious. We then upgraded to the Mediterranean salad, which is always great. The filets were cooked perfectly and very tender. I always get the pastry covered mashed potatoes. Overall, it was a very special and memorable dinner with the family.

Love this restaurant, next time I will request a booth. It gets a little crowded at the tables, especially since they had sat a couple of large groups and tables were pulled together to accommodate them.

Our server Ruben, I believe, was very knowledgeable of the menu, suggestions, following up and making us feel comfortable, he did a really good job. We purchased additional drinks to take out to the patio, however once there, we were never again addressed by any potential server outside. My friend and I would have very much preferred another drink. Hmmmm! Nonetheless, our dinner was fabulous and our server was great. Thank you.

We have always loved coming here but we had the worst service. The waiter took 20 minutes to get drink orders, we had no menus for 30 minutes, and he screwed up the checks and had added an unknown charge to the bill. The food was generally good although salads were drowning in dressing.

Exquisite! I just so look forward to Santa Fe Steakhouse's off menu items so I and our friends dove right into the features: I had the a fish plate that had a beautiful white fish, fresh calamari, mussels and shrimp swimming in a bouillon broth and my husband and friends all ordered a delectable grill poached ribeye with hassleback potatoes accompanied by a thyme and rosemary pistou. WOW! We simply can't stray too far from the Santa Fe Steakhouse because they're food, ambience and staff are always on point!

Yet again the service was flawless. The staff made every effort to see that we were well taken care of. The Wagyu Ribeye was cooked to perfection. I like my steak "blue" and it was rare as con be without a hint of char. The cocktails were prepared with skill, and the wine list was varied. As always, my dinning companion was suitably impressed. I've narrowed McAllen down to 3 favorite restaurants... and when I want steak I go to Santa Fe.

Santa Fe has great character. The decor mimics places you’d see all over New Mexico. It has a wine storage room with a dining table, outdoor fireplace and more! Plus the food is great!

Arrived and sat promptly. Piano music was playing and a nice smell from a fireplace burning of piñon wood welcomes guests. We skipped appetizers and ordered our entrees. Most of the guests ordered the tenderloin and other guest ordered the fried shrimp. After the meal crossed over to the bar for champagne. Great atmosphere and food.

It was not a very good experience we had Riby steak and they had no taste they took them back and all the did is add sea salt. Manager came and ask why he could do and we told him they had no taste and we didn't see him after that and we still got billed full about. I spent 200.00 on the meal we won't be back

Santa Fe is one of my favorite restaurants in the Valley. I lived there five years ago and still have family in the area. We visited Santa Fe recently and it didn’t disappoint. I live in Los Angeles now, and the dining experience is as enjoyable as anywhere I’ve been out here.

Wish we could have rated this place higher, but trying to be fair. Service definitely too slow. Not a place for a "Romantic" evening, as noise level is up there. Fare was somewhat creative, but lacked originality.
Staff seemed disorganized at times. If you're going there for a special occasion, as we did, don't expect any recognition or acknowledgement. Treated the same as the herd(everyone else). Overall, a little more substance and a lot less image would do wonders.
