This is a place to see and be seen in Santa Fe, and the food was delicious. We ate here for breakfast and dinner, and everything was great. They also have gluten-free bread and handle food allergy issues well. The service was friendly and helpful.

Very clean, upscale food, we felt good after eating here VS your normal butter-filled breakfast fare. We were there pretty early in the morning (8ish) and it was quiet, mostly older couples. Our...

We only go there for the enchilada because its that good and don't want to risk a bad choice. The service was good and the prices don't break the bank.

We usually stay at La Fonda when in Santa Fe, and La Plazuela is a natural for breakfast. The servings are large and the food is great. The atmosphere is fabulous.

We had lunch here on our first day in Santa Fe. The setting is lovely and the food is OK. Not quite average but not transcendent to very good, either.

I had a chance to visit this very popular restaurant but found a few questions. THe torta de borrego was mainly mayonaise which killed it. THe chile chowder on the other hand was great.

I have eaten at La Plazuela at La Fonda many times. The food is always excellent - lunch, dinner or late evening snack - and the bartender is generous!

This restaurant is attractive, but not anything special. The service was ok. The tacos were tasty. The vegetarian tacos were unique.

This is my go to place with friends or for date night. The service is impeccable. I have never waited for a table, but always make a reservation. The restaurant is in the atrium of La Fonda Hotel. I love the old colonial hotel feel. Prime rib on Friday or Saturday night is delicious. Many local favorites as well such... More
