    I have visited this restaurant a few years ago, so it was on the top of my list to return to. The ambience is warm and inviting. There was a guitarist playing softly in the background and it added to the already amazing experience. Our server was very prompt and friendly and our meals were delicious! So good, we made another reservation for our last evening in Santa Fe. Can’t think of a better venue to end our amazing time in Santa Fe.

    Cutest outside dining. My boys are bigger and the seats were not comfortable for them though. Great wine selection. Bruschetta was the best thing. Oysters needed some kick or something-pretty bland. Chicken fried chicken breast was amazing as was fish n chips. Caesar salad was wonderful. Ribeye was a HUGE portion and the marsala sauce was so great. Strawberry parfait was good.

    In a town like Santa Fe great dining options abound. TerraCotta was wonderful. We spent nine days in Santa Fe and enjoyed every place we ate. But this one was special. We wanted a relaxed environment with great food and wine for our last night in town and it filled the bill perfectly. Outside seating was not overly fancy but comfortable. Service was attentive and not pretentious. Loved this place.

    Picked this restaurant after reading many positive reviews before we departed the UK to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We weren’t disappointed. Great relaxing atmosphere, lovely food and attentative friendly staff who recognised our anniversary with a free glass of rose wine. Felt really welcome and would highly recommend.

    This is one of our go-to restaurants in Santa Fe, especially when we have company. From the moment you arrive (in the summer) and see the gorgeous flower garden in front, you start to relax. Food, service, choices of wine are all very good, and we have never felt rushed.

    We have been here a few times and it never disappoints. We sat on the back patio and it was very quite and pleasant - fully covered. Service is always good, they manage to keep staff in these trying times. Love the 1/2 bottle menu, perfect for a couple. The bruschetta appetizers are fun to experiment with. Will be back

    Thos is the best kept secret in Santa Fe. They have a great wine list (and I'm picky). The food is always excellent as well. Not much parking nearby. But it is worth a short walk from the Plaza. I've been with small groups, romantic nights out and enjoyed them all!

    Excellent as always! I typically go early to have $6 wine before 6 and that is no longer available. Darn! How about increasing the price slightly instead of completely doing away with an incentive that is SO appreciated? Times are tight for many of us right now.

    We have been here on multiple occasions and have had our expectations met or exceeded each time. On this occasion we brought out of town guests who were also pleased with the experience and the quality of the food. We’ve had the opportunity to visit with Chef Cat during quieter times and so enjoyed that and her welcome and stories of the area. It’s our favorite place in Santa Fe.

    Our second time here and it was as good as we remembered. My husband had the rib eye and I had the salmon. Both were excellent with the side vegetables and roasted potatoes cooked to perfection. Service was excellent. This is a cute and cozy venue that allows for a comfortable and enjoyable evening. We will return on our next visit to Santa Fe.
