My wife and I got married in May of 2015, and spent our honeymoon in Santa Fe. As my wife is a very good planner, she made reservations for us at Geronimo (GREAT DECISION, BABY!!!). They knew it was our honeymoon, and the experience was awesome from the very start. They sat us next to a kiva fireplace with candles lit in it. Then our server greeted us with 2 glasses of complimentary champagne (nice touch).
We had the Hawaiian Ahi Tuna Sashimi & Tartar for a starter, which, if my memory serves me correct, was spectacular! It had buttermilk, scallion pancakes, a wasabi creme fraiche, avocado, soy lime syrup, shiso leafs, and caviar (I took pictures of the menu because it was so good).
For dinner, my wife had the Telicherry Rubbed Elk Tenderloin, with roasted garlic fork-mashed potatoes, sugar snap peas, applewood smoked bacon, and creamy brandied-mushroom sauce. Cooked to perfection (medium-rare), it was succulent, and melted in your mouth!! I had the New Mexico "Four Corners" Slow Braised Lamb Shanks with organic farro "risotto," roasted baby carrots, citrus & mint gremolata, & lamb au jus. The risotto took a couple bites for me to get used to, but it was amazing! The lamb was perfectly cooked (literally fell of the bone).
For dessert, we got a creme brulee trio. One was traditional creme brulee. One other was raspberry, but my favorite was the third-espresso creme brulee. It was just ridiculously good!!!
The service was immaculate! Well timed, and our server was knowledgeable and engaging, but not overly intrusive! He was an accomplished musician (trumpet player, I believe), who had performed at Carnegy Hall once, too, I think. Sorry I don't remember his name, because I would recommend him as your server in a heart beat!! Everything was perfect! From the greeting at the door, the atmosphere, the service, to the food! We couldn't have asked for a better experience! Thank you Geronimo!! It was truly outstanding!!
