Coyote Cafe

Restaurant Review

Coyote Cafe It seems a shame that the most famous restaurant in Santa Fe — the one that started it all when it comes to modern Southwestern cuisine — has fallen this far. The room needs a good deal of care to make it elegant once again. The tables and chairs are beat, and the wall near our table had a big red wine drip on it. The food was beautifully presented, but on some dishes, the presentation made it impossible to eat. General quality was uneven and at that price this just won't do! My Foie gras appetizer arrived cold and had to be sent back. The antelope was superb, but the pork Wellington was dry and not very tasty. Even our chocolate dessert was off. Espresso Panna cotta was just plain weird. Not the meal I had
