Description: Santa Fe Uptown is an off-shoot of longtime Tivoli, NY favorite, Santa Fe. A warm, inviting and festive atmosphere sets the scene for a fun meal of the freshest ingredients along with the best tequila selection in Ulster County. Committed to serving all natural, always fresh, made-from-scratch menu items, Santa Fe Uptown has quickly gained the reputation of being one of Kingston's most popular restaurants.Santa Fe Uptown features a large yet cozy U-shaped bar that has been a local gathering place for over 50 years (when it was known as 11 Main). There are two intimate dining rooms with boldly colored walls and filled with the twinkle of the 100+ candles that are lit nightly.

“STILL THE BEST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Have been there many times since initial visit shortly after its opening. It now has a large deck outside which is used seasonally and which is a great addition. The menu is occasionally tweaked so as to vary the available choices. Friendly atmosphere. Great food. Super drinks.

“The most fresh quality Family Friendly Mexican we ever had- and we live in NYC!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

We just travelled through Kingston and what a plea sent surprise. Our two young children and we parents enjoyed fresh quality food at a reasonable price!! The vege burrito was perfectly balanced, not too much cheese, lovely sweet potato/spinach fall taste!! Guacamole was perfect for kids and the Plantains were the best version we ever had!!!

“Great Menu and Good Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

We liked the varied menu, like fish tacos with sea bass. Friendly service and nice wine list. Met the owners and they had a great story to tell about how the restaurant got started and development of the menu. This is not your normal southwest menu.

“Fun spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013 via mobile

I've always had a good time here. I think the staff is young and fun and the food is decent. I wish it wasn't so cramped though. I usually end up sitting at the bar because the tables are almost on top of each other.

“Great Mexican!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013 via mobile

Great Mexican restaurant in Kingston. Lots of gluten free choices. Food was fresh, well presented and well prepared. Service was fantastic. Water glasses were refilled before we even knew we needed more! Highly recommend.
