The place is a dumpy, friendly dive. The wait staff are helpful and they hustle because the place is very popular. The regular menu is reasonably priced; but, this is NOT fine dining! The wine selection is limited and is served in juice glasses so don't bother with wine and order beer. We ordered the day's special, halibut served over posole. It was fabulous. The fish was crusted on the outside and flaky within, the portion was generous and the posole (i.e. hominy stew) was the very best of the several versions we ate over our two weeks in New Mexico and Colorado. If you have more than one evening meal in Santa Fe, make Tune Up one of them. At the very least do a lunch there. You won't be dissappointed. Large salads came with the main. They were more than one needed and not spectacular but eminently workmanlike. I've already raved about the halibut but the posole is worth a description. It included artichoke and poblano pepper and red pepper and bok choy. It was so tasty that we bought several bags of the dried corn used to make it to take home to try and recreate it. Desserts of peach and blackberry cobbler and strawberry rhubard pie were good but not special and neither was the coffee. Still, the main course made the meal worthwhile. The specials were the most expensive items on the menu, about $23.00 per so the total bill with tax and a 20% tip (before tax) was $95.00. That amount included two glasses of wine. Two can eat well there for much less than that.
