Everything we tried was so good. The peppers were a favorite as was the prickly pear margarita. I want expecting it to be this good as it was the only restaurant on the grounds.

I didnt have reservations so I couldn't eat at the restaurant but I got a table at the wine bar. I had a glass of wine and a bowl of butternut squash soup. Perfect small meal to keep my relaxed mood going after a trip to the hot spring pools. The gluten free blue corn muffins were a nice addition.... More

The grilled artichokes were basically seasoned fibrous leaves with little edible pulp. Very overpriced at $13. The entrees were so delayed by the kitchen I had to ask the hostess to inquire about our food. I ordered grilled trout. A very small portion cost $26. The requested double order of asparagus consisted of five asparagus stems. An overpriced meal with... More

This review is for the Wine Bar at Ojo, not the restaurant. We felt more in the mood for the bar, because we have eaten in the restaurant many times on previous visits. The restaurant is open, a little chilly, and not very cozy. It was a cool night, and the bar looked like the place to be. We sat... More

The 1st and 2nd time we visited, our waitress was very friendly and happy to serve us! Breakfast was amazing and quick to come out! For lunch, try the green chili fries, they're delicious! The 3rd visit was less pleasant. The food was absolutely outstanding, props to the chef, but the service was horrid. Our waiter may as well just... More

We had lunch here prior to going to the springs. The food was very good. All the staff was very friendly. The only disappointment is that the service was a little slow. This could be because it is a resort and they don't want to rush you, but we were anxious to get to the springs.

The food was good, menu lacked selection. The spa was not a place for hard of hearing or social people.

They have a (mostly) healthy and interesting New Mexican menu, a wonderful ambiance and friendly staff. We totally recommend the Artesian. The key with relaxing at Ojo is to arrive, park your car, and don't move your car until its time to go home. Because of the Artesian you will never have to go looking for food, which can be... More

Just north of Santa Fe is Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs' secluded sanctuary. Deemed sacred by Native Americans of Northern New Mexico, our legendary waters have been soothing body, mind and spirit naturally for centuries. The Artesian Restaurant provides a casual dining experience and charming atmosphere. Our chef blends local flavors with global cuisine. Creative dishes include Green Chile Crusted Salmon, homemade pasta, and Ribeye. Lighter fare is available in the Wine Bar & Lounge.
We suggest that you make reservations for spa treatments, private outdoor pools and dinner before you arrive.
Ojo is the only hot springs in the world with 4 unique, sulphur-free mineral waters. The resort is historic, yet modern and fresh with eclectic charm in a relaxed and tranquil environment. The full-service spa offers a wide array of restorative treatments including nurturing massage and hydrating face and body treatments. Don't miss a soak in a private outdoor pool by fire at night or in the seasonal, detoxifying mud pool. We offer an unpretentious and uncomplicated atmosphere with a variety of lodging accommodations, including enchanting suites, charming cottages, the historic hotel and private homes. All lodging includes access to all mineral pools every day of your visit. Yoga classes are offered 7 days a week. Ojo is nestled in a valley on 1,100 acres and is adjacent to thousands of acres of hiking and mountain biking trails.
