La Plazuela is our absolute favorite dinner spot in Santa Fe! We have been coming back for over 6 years (my husband even proposed to me here)! Great Southwest dishes & flavors--something for everyone. The table-side guacamole is great as you can choose any ingredients you wish to exclude or add extra of into your appetizer. Dishes range from fajitas,... More

Attended a Dinner Fundraiser the atmosphere at the La Fonda is very eclectic and yet urban and old world at the same time service was very good and the entire experience definitely did not disappoint I had a wonderful time.

We stopped in for lunch. Nice menu, great service, tasty lunch. We had been shopping on the plaza and found it a conveniently located stop.

Although I wouldn't rate it a five, this restaurant is a strong four. Great southwest flavors. I wish they offered salsa and chips.

Love the ambiance and the furniture. The food is fantastic, the margarita was well done. My husband and I had the fajitas for two. The table side guacamole was a nice treat.

Corn chowder, tamales...excellent. A good spot for solid, if unexciting Mexican food. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Great ambiance too. We will definitely be back, possibly to stay at the hotel there

Lovely venue for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Nice menu with good selection of NM cuisine and America food as well. Excellent service always. Last dinner was a pork dish which was perfect. Your tab will not break the bank either. Good quality meals at a fair price.

Had dinner on Saturday night. Full restaurant, great energy. Service was excellent. Armando I think was our server. He was nearly perfect. Food was outstanding. I had enchiladas and my wife had fajitas. Both were excellent. Nice having properly made Mexican food. Something you don't get in most parts of the country. Flan was just ok but I compared it...

Since a restaurant is about food and service, I rated it average, but the art and architecture of this restaurant are worth seeing and well above average. La Plazuela is the main restaurant in downtown's upscale and historic La Fonda hotel. The setting for the restaurant has been recently remodeled, not for the best, but is still impressive looking with... More

Met there for a family dinner so there was 9 of us, mostly Santa Fe natives. The guacamole that was made tableside was good but very salty. The lamb chops were very good but no one that had traditional Santa Fe food liked their meal. The green and red chile had no flavor, or at least not as much as... More
