Old House Restaurant & Tavern is located in the beautiful pueblo-themed city of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The restaurant is operated (from 5:30PM to 10:00PM) inside the upscale Eldorado Hotel ($215-$1500/room for 2 people, according to AAA) and it is recommended, although not required, that diners dress in a business casual attire. The limited items on the menu, individually, range anywhere from $12-$30 or the sampler, which consists of a 5 course meal, can be ordered for $50 (or $80 with wine).
Personally, I was not happy with this restaurant for several reasons.
1. The prices were outrageous but I suppose that's expected.
2. Even though the food tasted GREAT, the portions were tiny. Needless to say, everyone in my party were hungry after throwing down $30 each for our dinner platter.
3. According to AAA, this restaurant served Southwestern cuisine AND it accepted the AAA discount. We were informed that the menu changes regularly and the day that we dined, there were little to no Southwestern items on the menu. After our meal, we were also told that they no longer accepted the AAA discount.
4. Customers are paying for the ambiance and the experience, not the food itself (even though the food is prepared by a group of "renown chefs").
This restaurant is recommended for dinners with business associates but I would highly not recommend this restaurant for the entire family for the reasons mentioned above.
