New York Strip
It was average taste... nice presentation but not very tasty. Considering the quality, in my opinion it was overpriced... a 9 oz steak with fried string potatoes, 3 pieces of asparagus and 1 oz of crab was $48, The a tuna/grapefruit appetizer was $18 and the lava cake (which had an unusual flavor I did not care for, thus did not eat) was $10.00. I am not a real foodie but do like an occasional nice meal when I am traveling. I chose this because it seemed to be the “nicest” place in McAllen to get a steak but I would not recommend it.
One of the few places in our area that offers outdoor dining and they do it very well.
Great dinner with my wife!
Service was excellent. Our waiter was great, served us promptly and with an excellent attitude. Loved that. He kept us so entertained and happy. Food was delish. We started out with mini beef Wellington which was very good. Cesar salad was great. Then we had a prickly pear margarita and cucumber martini which both were delicious. Our dinner was excellent. Steaks were cooked just as we asked for. Overall our dining experience was excellent!!!
Everything was very good. Food was delicious. Drink was a bit pricey....the cost of a margarita was double what it costs at most other places....the drink was delicious, but over-priced.
Excelente ambiente, música de fondo muy agradable y el servicio muy bueno.
The outdoor patio where we ate is beautiful and in these COVID days a much safer alternative to eating inside
The amount of money I spent, the experience was not favorable. Mashed potato wrapped in puff pastry, was a disappointment. I been sober for 33 years and my Virgin Bloody Mary was not garnished with the signature celery stick. Mini Beef Wellington resting on a demi glaze makes the pastry "soggy" and the corn meal batter shrimp removed the moisture from the shrimp. I have dine in French style and paid less and had a favorable experience. The Manager passed by the table and "ask the question" and we responded, He did not hear the respond, because he moved right along, no interaction. I did not see the chef or the sous. We were celebrating my daughter birthday.
As always, everything was fantastic.
Julio great waiter.
Outstanding service and food. Excellent environment.
Our server Sam was on point! From drinks to food suggestions-
James (manager) was on top of everything- we saw him talking to each table interacting with guests
All CDC guidelines were being followed
Great job Santa Fe’
Need to work on their customer service and my steak was overcooked.
The service was extremely nice. We enjoyed eating indoors and particularly enjoyed the very tasteful piano music. All in all a delightful experience.
We felt uncomfortable that social distancing was not observed when the county lockdown was still
Service is really good
Thank you, Eduardo for a wonderful evening.
Food was great quality . Great service and environment was wonderful
Went to celebrate my friends birthdays. We sat outside which was very nice. There was a breeze and an air conditioning machine to keep it cool. The service was right on point. The steaks were cooked perfectly and so good! We made some special orders which we done. I will return.
It was a great experience. I was visiting McAllen for the first time. I took my girlfriend on a random date. Made reservations and has specific notes on my reservations. They were acknowledged. Food and ambience was amazing. David great service and thank you again.
Your friend from Miami.

Thank you for another wonderful evening.
One my favorite places to go in the Valley and would recommend.
Overall experience wonderful food is delicious, and customer service top notch!
The steaks were excellent, food and service were excellent as well. Great evening!
We had the best server he knew specials that were not on the menu and about all the wine. He made my fiancé’s birthday special by having the happy birthday song played on the piano.
The food was excellent—-the steak Frances was cooked to perfection and my husband’s king salmon was fit for a king!!! The noise level is very high, especially the table of 8 sitting a few feet away!!!
Calamari highly recommended for the starter. Had the Lamb Chops and it was good, the side with it is amazing. Wife had the Wagyu steak and its big enough to feed 2 people or make a couple meals out of. No room for dessert.
Service was amazing. Too much cheese on the artichoke dip, loved it to be creamier.
Went with a group of friends.We split the orders as we are light eaters. No problem. The steak was perfect. The garlic/peppercorn topping was outstanding. I loved my meal. Thank you!
The service was awesome. Noe was a true professional. The food was excellent as well. A truly fine dining experience.
It was amazing and most important the Spanish coffee she prepared for me!!
Noe, was fantastic. Great recommendations on the wine.
We had a wonderful experience at Santa Fe, despite the current environment. Highly recommend!
Great food and atmosphere. Service was great as well.
Excellent food and service. Glad Santa Fe is up and running again. Hope to dine there in the very near future. Best calamari ever.
It was a wonderful experience as ALWAYS!! Food, service and atmosphere is always extraordinary!
Great atmosphere! Had a great time and the food was delicious. The staff is very knowledgeable and makes you feel like home. Victor really was attentive and gave us a good wine choice. Definitely coming back
Great service every time we go. Wait staff have all worked there a long time and they help each other out wherever they are needed. Very friendly staff!
