Quiet April evening. The lobster ravioli appetizer had 2 ravioli and could not taste any lobster, mostly pasta, in a rich but tasteless sauce. The trout was perfectly cooked but was accompanied by a tomato sauce that just did not complement it. The NY strip was good meat but had a sweetish sauce that didn't seem right. Staff very pleasant... More

We have been going to La Casa Sena for over 30 years and it has remained a favorite in Santa Fe. We love the courtyard for dining when weather is good. There burgers are grass fed and grass finished and the salmon is wild caught. Need I say more? You won't be disappointed.

If you are in Santa Fe for lunch, don't miss this place. Best nicoise salmon salad on earth and grilled veggie sandwich is not far behind. Great service too!

We were in Santa Fe on a tour and heard good things about the restaurant. The decor was a welcome upscale change from the ubiquitous southwest-themed restaurants! The staff was friendly and attentive, and the food very good. The Squash and Sweet Potato soup was wonderful, I almost licked the bowl! My duck was tasty but somewhat dry, which was... More

Satisfying all current American tastes, this is memorable for the excellent service and the artful, tasty and original entrees. Consider a cheesy vegetarian melange en croute or a chop with a positively drinkable sauce. Service is tops. Wine selection is adequate.......try a lavender marguerita, once.

What a lovely restaurant to find on a dark night passing through the state. Super delicious soup and great service. Had a delicious beverage too. We wandered thru the courtyard area in such for food, so lucky to find them.

My husband and I came to La Casa Sena for my son's birthday. We were greeted by a sweet hostess and she wished my son a Happy Birthday and seated us at our table. Then our waitress came and asked what we would like to drink. No, "how are you tonight" just can I get you something to drink. We... More

I would go back the staff was super. The protein was super the side dishes were all too aldente for both of us. Still the sea bass should be ordered and you should try at least one desert. The wine list is extensive

Great dining in a beautiful setting inside and out. The history of the courtyard outside of the restaurant is very interesting... it was built to accomodate the family who had 24 children!

We had a delicious salad and terrific shrimp appetizer in the lovely courtyard...where spring had every tree blossoming and the dappled sunlight made for a memorable meal. It was not cheap--lemonades for two, a salad and a shrimp appetizer came to around $38 or $40...but it was sh-so-lovely. It is worth stopping into this beautiful spot, even if you are... More
