“Eat somewhere else”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

Food was definitely 2nd rate - no where near the wonderful New Mexican and Mexican food that the area is known for... go somewhere else!

“Pleasant atmosphere in a garden-like setting”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

We have been here before and I have reviewed this restaurant before, but not in awhile. We went this time because I had a restaurant.com coupon/voucher worth $15 (which I purchased for either $6 or $3) under the understanding that I would spend $22.50. This was easy as their dinner salads have gone up to $11 or $11.50. We had the pineapple chicken salad that we've had before. It was very tasty, served on a bed of greens with the chicken salad in a hollowed out pineapple half (perhaps third) with various other fruits (watermelon and cantaloupe pieces) surrounding it. However, this is not for people with big appetites, as it is not that filling, and it is not served with a dinner roll. They do bring chips and salsa to have while you consider the menu. Because we had time (before the film), we also ordered decaf coffee and their banana enchilada dessert -- one of their specialties. It was good, but not as good as I had remembered from other occasions. So the bill even with the $15 coupon/voucher deducted from the original price came to a bit over $21. I consider this expensive, which is why I think we would only go with a coupon/voucher. The ladies restroom is shared with the Double Eagle restaurant in the same building and is clean. Parking is on the street or in front of the Basilica on the Plaza.

“Never miss it when friends come to visit”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Relaxed atmosphere, great location for strolling the plaza before or after -check out the green chili wontons with pineapple salsa and the seafood enchiladas. Service is sometimes a little slow but friendly.

“Plus and minuses”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

This is such a lovely place. Our lunch was ups and downs ... great entrees but no syllable of apology for burnt appetizers, a long wait, or colder than room temperature coffee.
Our server Cindi seemed to be having a very inattentive day. We told her the signature wonton appetizers were burnt, showed her the carbonized wrappers, and she wasnt listening. Instead of acknowledging things werent right, she said we should have two orders next time ... We went to try new menu items we'd read about in the newspaper. The salmon crepes were fabulous/memorable. I'm glad I added spinach and bacon. Hubby's salmon was very rare; just the way he likes it. Unfortunately, the chipotle-mango sauce was KETCHUP with a chunk of mango and NO chipotle heat or taste at all. If the salmon hadnt been fabulous, salmon on a bed of ketchup would have been a big disappointment. His side, borracha beans, were a famine-sized portion, less than 1/4 cup. Like there's a pinto bean shortage in New Mexico??? My red chile sea salt fries were very, very ordinary room-temp battered fries - with No red chile at all. The coconut flan was great, as usual. The long wait for entrees and dessert made us realize we hadnt got chips and salsa like all the other tables. Hubby's coffee was cold/not-even-room-temperature and we asked Cyndi to take it back. She did, without a word, good, bad, or otherwise. That made us think of another uneven meal we had recently elsewhere and we ended up raving to the GM about the server because she apologized for things not being right and offered us even better substitutions. Peppers is a lovely place, some good food. We'll go back someday when we can overlook the service. Too bad there's isnt good management to get everything working in a better direction.

“Peppers On the Plaza - A Great Experience”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

MY wife and I met friends at this nice restaurant while on our way to Texas. It is a very unique restaurant with excellent food and service. It is a little hard to find, but well worth the hunt!
