Phenomenal cocktail list! 7/28/2009

Make no mistake: this is no casual Santa Fe boite, despite the poorly attired tourists. The space is elegant, sophisticated and upscale. The servers and maitre'd are very professional and the menu is very expensive. Appetizers, which are called ""firsts"" are all in the double digits and the entrees run up to $40. But the meats and seafood are all fresh and exquisitely prepared and the portion sizes are perfect. I had a ""first""- the very decadent crab and mushroom risotto and I was completely full. However, the cocktail list was what brought me back the next night. There are four pages of signature cocktails that are absolutely to die for! I saw at least three that I would have tried if I could have but I stuck with the same one, both nights- the ""Q-cumber Cooler""- cucumber vodka, lime juice and a salted rim. On a hot Santa Fe evening, it's the perfect refreshment. I would recommend this as a pre-opera or celebratory place to eat and would not sit in the cantina because it's more of a pick up place. But the inside bar is a sophisticated little oasis with very nice views. Pros: Inventive signature cocktails, upscale environment Cons: The food is expensive more

Good place for drinks on the terrace 8/6/2008

We opted to eat and have drinks at the rooftop cantina of the Coyote. The place was packed and very noisy. Service was rather mediocre as the young female server we had kept going over and flirting with some young man every 2 minutes. The food and drinks were very good and I enjoyed the atmosphere and the setting very much. There was a nice cool breeze and the sun was setting. I would go again but don't expect top notch service. Pros: Good food and drinks, rooftop ambience, lively atmosphere Cons: Service wasn't good, rather pricey for what you get more

Rude staff, poor food quality - horrible experience 6/19/2008

Santa Fe was a great experience except for Coyote Cafe. Overpriced, poor quality and unaccomodating. Coyote Cafe should be avoided. There are far better experiences to be had in Santa Fe. more

Go to Geronimo or The Compound 5/29/2008

I consider myself a foodie. I have eaten at many good restaurants; however, the Cayote Cafe is not one of them. The food was fair- heavy sauces, dishes that were appropriately uncomplicated, but not interesting either. The space is very noisy. The service was truely terrible- long waits for food; food in each course delivered to the wrong person. At this price point in Santa Fe there are clearly better choices. Pros: Good looking place Cons: Undistinguished food, poor service, expensive more

Decent place for a snack and some drinks 6/8/2007

We went to the cantina portion of the coyote. It's more casual and has an al fresco setting overlooking Water street. They have some slammin' margharitas and some of the best guacamole my girlfriend and I had ever tried. (IT'S NOT FREE, though they didn't mention that - $8 for a solid portion of chips and guac.) It was pricey for what we had, but the food was fantastic. The cuban sandwich is to die for. We had the shrimp coctail... it was nice - but too expensive at $13 for 5 medium sized shrimp. more

Terrible! 5/3/2006

I would never go to this place again, I was pretty annoyed that it was the last place I ate in in Santa Fe, because the rest of my experience in this town was fantastic. Overpriced generic mexican food, a staff that hurried me through my meal...no friendliness whatsoever. I would have been better off at Taco Bell. more
