Guest Review: Gourmet Cuisine at Its Finest

During our recent trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico for the Balloon Festival, we took a day trip to Santa Fe.  After a long day of shopping and sightseeing, for dinner, we decided to choose a restaurant near the plaza.  The restaurant is located in the Inn and Spa at Loretto, a luxury hotel. As usual, we had checked with TripAdvisor, and the reviews were excellent.

Although we did not have a reservation, we were seated in an area of our choice by the fireplace, which we appreciated because it was chilly outside. The dining room was beautiful, with large vigas (wood beams) on the ceiling and the decor was New Mexico southwest. The dining room had a view of the large patio area with a cascading fountain, mature trees, and mood lighting.

The server was excellent, explaining the various menu items in detail. She recommended several three course meals that included wine for each course. We all chose the blackened salmon. Two of us chose the fire grilled romaine salad, and although it was very good, after we tasted the lemony chicken tortilla soup, which is award winning, we wished we had chosen it too. However, before we were served our first course, the server brought a small serving of prime rib eye with chimichurri sauce on a large tasting spoon. What a nice way to start a meal!

Our blackened salmon, which was served with a creamy leak risotto with a crispy leak topping, was cooked to perfection, moist and flaky and it was so delicious! The wine pairing with each of the courses was well thought out and suited each course to perfection, and the servings were generous.

Next came the desserts. Each of us chose a different one. I chose the blackout chocolate cake with peanut butter icing. One of my family members chose the three sorbets, and my third family member chose a brulee. Each one was to die for!

The price for such a gourmet meal was very reasonable. I can't say enough good things about the service. Our water glasses were always filled, empty dishes were whisked away quickly.  This was a very special meal to end our very special visit to Santa Fe.
