Always a reliable fine dining experience. Perfect flavors with options to spice things up thermonuclear if that's what you desire. Fish tacos in both salmon and swordfish are delicious. Make a reservation, Santa Fe is packed on Saturday night. Parking is a challenge, but that's Tivoli's fault, not the restaurants. This place is a bit out of the way, so we combine it on the return trip home from shopping in Kingston. SF has great decor and ambiance, not the cheesy Wal-Mart esque type you see so often in Mexican places. Margaritas are very good, but need to be served in Margarita glasses. Friendly, helpful wait staff, but perhaps a bit understaffed when the place is packed. Give it a try.

Have eaten in a lot of Mexican restaurants. The food at Santa Fe was tasty and well-prepared and the service and ambiance are excellent. Santa Fe would definitely be a hit in NYC.

Ate at Santa Fe with friends last Friday. It was chaotic. We had a reservation but were early so wanted to wait at the bar for friends. The hostess could not grasp this concept and kept trying to seat us. First impression: it was soooooo hot inside. We were uncomfortable as visibly were other diners inside. To make it worse they seated us near the open kitchen and we ran out of lukewarm water (no ice?????). Food was good. I had fish tacos, and although overpriced they were tasty. Couldn't finish them in that heat. Might try again in cooler weather, but first impressions are hard to overcome. Skip.

Entrees and chips/salsa were very good. The decor is pretty, and it wasn't too loud. Everything else was forgettable. Our waiter could be timed with a sundial. The side salad was coated in supermarket bottled soy-ginger dressing. My margarita was basically a pint of tequila -- which would've been great if I wanted a 16-oz shot instead of a mixed drink. No reason to return.

As we were expecting a house full of guests over Memorial Day, my wife and I wanted to kick back with good margaritas, guacamole and an excellent food. We were not disappointed with any of our choices.
Service could not have been better, our dinners were excellent (especially the Fish Tacos) and we had two rounds of drinks which I guess speaks for itself.
One of our party had dietary issues which the kitchen attended to without a problem. All in all it was a great evening. You will not be disappointed.
