The cheerful, helpful staff happily let us sit outside in the sunshine even though we were definitely out of season. Those of us who really care about their Mexican food were happy enough with their lunch and they have a nice selection of Mexican beers too. The Caesar (with shrimp added) would have been if the lettuce had been tossed... More

On my last visit, the restaurant had an authentic Mexican feel. The wait staff, management, etc. were all Mexican and created a warm atmosphere with cultural charm. Now it looks like the restaurant has... More

Good food and service - homemade guacamole was the highlight! Drinks were great too! Wife enjoyed the mole - said the spice level was just right! Street tacos were just ok - the steak one was the best however.

This restaurant was very close to the Nemours Mansion and Gardens so we went to lunch there after visiting the house. I've eaten at lots of Mexican restaurants and this one is easily one of the best ones. The menu has a lot of variety of traditional dishes and some more unique and authentic Mexican dishes. I had the breakfast... More

It was our first visit for dinner and we were pleased. Service was attentive and the food was very good. We had fajitas which were prepared well and tasty. We also had a side of plantains which we loved. A good time and we plan to return.

Santa Fe Wilmington opened its doors in Spring 2010 and features a modern twist on Mexican cuisine. The chef prepares creative dishes daily that include natural ingredients and authentic spices. Homemade table side guacamole, a flavorful cuisine, and freshly squeezed margaritas have made Santa Fe one of Wilmington's favorite dining spots. The vibrant decor and handmade Mexican artwork create a cultural dining experience for families and friends.
