About

This restaurant is permanently closed.

Taberna in Santa Fe, NM offers amazing dishes from Chef James Campbell Caruso who has created a unique spot for tapas and authentic Spanish cuisine. Presented in amazing style and with tremendous attention to quality, Taberna offers an unforgettable evening out.

With dinner, lunch, happy hour and dessert menus, there is much to love about Taberna. Your visit must start with something from the bar and you can then pair it with the starters like the pico limon olives or the fried garbanzo. There are impressive main dishes too, and you might choose the flat iron steak or the roasted pork with mushroom ragout. The cheese platter is a favorite, but so too are the salads and other smaller plates.

The tapas are tasty and people like me who are gluten free and dairy free can find things to eat. I love the fingerling potatoes, chicken skewers, and 3 dips. Wine list is extensive and recommendation from our waiter was very good. They also have a great happy hour which I have been to in the past.

I keep coming back to Taberna and I wasn't disappointed in my last visit. The menu has changed since the last time I was there but some of my old favorites (the alcachofas) and some new ones (stuffed dates with pomegranate molasses and bleu cheese dipping sauce). This time I tried the Sangria which was flavorful and refreshing. As always, the service was wonderful and the dessert was great (coffee bean mousse). I'll be back again - hopefully this month :)

Really enjoyable spot for enjoying dining, a glass of beer or wine, and relaxed conversation...yet in the center of downtown Santa Fe. Shares ownership & many menu items (and some staff ;) with nearby, 'buzzier' La Boca (also Spanish in theme, w/delicious 'tapas' small plates specialties), which though more popular, is sometimes a challenge to book. Happy hour specials are a real bargain...and good!

Not all tapas are created equally! Taberna has incredibly creative, interesting, fresh, artistically displayed small plates. We are still talking about the paper thin octopus ceviche-- served as if it were a design. The salads were delicious but what made them extraordinary were the light dressings that enhanced the flavors without overpowering the taste of the ingredients. A good dressing opens your taste buds immediately; a great dressing goes unnoticed until a hint of it reminds you, after finishing the salad that it existed. The desserts were ok. The service was very good- fun and attentive waiter. The best sherry list in New Mexico. Can't wait to go back!

We attended a wine dinner, which was very good.
Now I am writing nonsense to get up to the required 50 words.

Great food and lovely outdoor dining, BUT the music can be overwhelming. Often not a place to go to have a conversation during dinner.

This place was recommended to us by its sister restaurant, La Boca. However, it was disappointing. The service was slow and inattentive and the food wasn't as good as La Boca. We never received the bread we ordered and couldn't find our server to order more drinks. I'd stick with La Boca next time.

Small, but quaint. Live music and you can still communicate. Noise level moderate. Wine list is good and the food is great. Worth taking the time try. You won't be disappointed. Enjoy!
