i was disappointed in the food. The salsa tasted off and out of a jar; the dough in the enchiladas suiza was overcooked and mealy. The margaritas tasted like soda pop.

I have been eating Mexican food for 40 years.

I love the look and feel of this restaurant. The wall color really is reminiscent of Santa Fe. The food is excellent Tex Mex, service is attentive and friendly. Usually it’s calm and quiet in the large back room, and that is delightful. Bit this Friday night, every table was packed and there was a lot of noise.

I came for dinner here with my daughter and her boyfriend on a recent visit to NYC. Santa Fe was a favorite of my husband and mine years ago when we lived on the UWS. The move to a slightly larger place a while back has not take away from the atmosphere (still cozy but not as quiet) and the food is as delicious as ever. Our daughter has come to love it also, worth the trip from the Village where she lives. Service is friendly and competent.

It was a busy scene despite our early reservation (5:30). Never-the-less we had a cozy, quiet table.
The service was prompt & courteous and the food was very good. I loved my duck confit chimichanga. We'll definitely be back!

My wife and I dine here, on average, several times a year as it is very near where we live with generally good food, service and value. This time we had our son's family with 5 y.o. old children and my other son. The place was busier than usual because a nearby upscale SW/Mexican facility had a kitchen fire and closed - diners shifted here. Was handled well. Only one minor issue that should be corrected. Two of my guests ordered fajitas and each came with only two moderate sized tortillas despite generous portions of meat and vegetables; I suggested the diners ask for more, but they did not so I'm not sure what would have happened. Should probably provide at least 4, maybe 5 tortillas for these meals.
