I have been a couple times to Santa Fe and the food is good but it is very expensive. I have eaten in other restaurants that offer Cabrito as well for a much better price. It is a high end restaurant with a great service but I believe you can have better food elsewhere.

The food is great and the service is really good. They have English Speaking staff and menus. The waiters are on top of things. Don't let them sit you close to the a/c vents. Your meat will get cold and that is no bueno!....Great place to take customers.

I have dined here numerous times since Santa Fe first opened at least a decade ago. Many business lunches, and often the last Mexican supper on the way to the MTY airport. I am pleased to report the grill continues to provide a good meal in a pleasant room with the attentive service we so miss up north. The cordero... More

This place is so-so. The food was pretty good but the service wasn't. They don't speak much English and what they do speak was hard ft me to understand.

Been here twice, both on business lunches and I just have to say that the food is great and the service is pretty good too! If you go with a large party they have special rooms for groups so gives you privacy.

My favorite dinner spot when I am in Monterrey. Lovely atmosphere with beautiful decorations and the food tastes fantastic! You can't go wrong with steak or pasta. The waitstaff is very attentive and treat diners so well. This restaurant is very safe and generally full for dinner.

Ive been serveral times in this restaurant, always business related, have had visitors from different nationalities and they always enjoy, my opinion is that is overpriced according to the area where is located and considering there are more options nearby. Atmosphere is ok but not amazing.

This is a lovely restaurant conveniently located on the main road in Apodaca. The food was quite good, but the service was really over the top. When one of the guests needed to charge his cell phone, the waiter instantly appeared with a cordless charger. Dinner was well paced and all the food arrived hot. The wait staff was super... More

Stopped here for lunch during a recent business trip. It was recommended by someone who lives in the area. While the service was very good, the food was just, well, average. The steak I had was tasty but I thought the chips and salsa were a bit lacking in flavor. The building itself is not very noticeable and the decor... More

I've been stopping at Santa Fe for lunch for many years. It's on the way to the airport and the service and the food are excellent. If you have a little time before your flight, plan lunch and enjoy.

Our kitchen not only makes the typical dishes from our region, but also developed new ones, which have become tradition in the cuisine of Nuevo León.We are the Founding House of the authentic Frijoles con Veneno (Beans with a Roast Pork and Chili sauce), Chicharrones de Rib-eye (Rib-eye cracklings.) We have elevated the well-known Tablita Norteña (A superb in-bone Tenderloin) to the highest category by perfecting the trimming, so your steak is easier to enjoy.All our tradition, the flavor, and expertise in steak, that is handed down from generation to generation, only to be found at Santa Fe.
