Santa Fe Restaurants

La Casa Sena

Updated 12/04/2013

Fodor's Review

The Southwestern-accented and Continental fare served at La Casa Sena is beautifully presented and generally quite delicious. Weather permitting, get a table on the patio surrounded by hollyhocks, flowering shrubs, and centuries-old adobe walls. A favorite entrée is the braised Colorado lamb shank with chipotle-huitlacoche demi-glace, roasted purple- and Yukon-gold potatoes, braised cipollini onions, and orange gremolata. There's a knockout lemon

crème brûlée as well as a tantalizingly sweet-and-tart sour cream-blueberry sundae with blue-corn crumble on the dessert menu. For a musical meal (evenings only), sit in the restaurant's adjacent, less-pricey Cantina ($$), where the talented and perky staff belt out Broadway show tunes. An on-site wine shop sells many of the estimable vintages offered on the restaurant's wine list.

Can you spell TOURIST TRAP

High prices, small servings and not the best tasting food around ( try Diago's in DeVargas Mall for great food). Lots of tourists and is in downtown Santa Fe so it will stay in business forever but tourists don't equate with quality fare.

expensive, small portions

I've been a regular visitor to Santa Fe for many years. I've always wondered about Casea Sena and finally had a chance to eat there a few months ago. The restaurant has a beautiful setting (inside and on the patio as well), and the service was good. However, my portion was small and the price was high. There are many better places to go.

It's about the show

I've been to La Casa Sena many times but only if someone else was paying. I think the food is only ok, the service can be snooty, and the prices high. On the other hand it is beautiful and I love to go into the cantina for a drink after dinner and hear the music.

Outdoor dining

Stopped by for an afternoon snack. Quite impressed with black bean soup and the lamb chorizo quesadilla. The margaritas were also very good. Will plan dinner here on our next trip to Santa Fe!

Casa Sena Does Mexican The Way It Should Be Done

You can't go wrong here, especially if you know quality Mexican fare.

Service matches the relaxed but efficient atmosphere

Wonderful lunches, especially on the patio where harp and guitar music complements the meal. Wine lists offers wide selection from local to good imports. Don't be surprised to see a celebrity sitting at a nearby table.
