We ate on the outside patio and it was very nice. A little loud with the traffic and train, but a pleasant experience.
Food was awful
We enjoyed the food and our server was very knowledgeable when we asked questions about the food, it was our first time there and we will be back.
Excellent food, drinks and service. Pleasant outdoor dining in the city.
Outside dining was great! Shrimp taquitos and churros were delicious! My sister had a mango margarita and really enjoyed jt!
A step above fast-food mex
Best Mexican food I’ve ever had in Wilmington area. Several steps above the typical fare offered. Flavors and textures were outstanding.
We were warmly greeted (as we always are) and seated. This was not our first visit. We feel that Santa Fe is probably the most authentic Mexican restaurant in the area. While waiting for our drinks, the chips and salsa arrived. The salsa was a little thin, but nice and spicy. We ordered Enchilada Del Rey and Enchilada Traditional. Both were excellent. My wife finished hers and I brought some home for later. We remain fans of this restaurant and thank Maddie (hope I'm right, should be close, sorry if I flubbed it) for taking such good care of us.
This was our first time at Santa Fe. Everything we had was delicious. Great food, great service and very nice ambience.
We had a delightful time and a very delicious meal. My only complaint was that our margaritas took over 15 minutes to arrive. Our server was wonderful, however.
Can't wait to return!
This place was amazing food was delicious drinks definitely on point service great the only thing I didn’t like was the parking I got lost but I eventually found it they need to be more specific where the parking lot is located but other than that service food was good good
Overall great. Loved our waiter. Loved sitting outside but the car noises was loud. Sounded like they were frank racing. But able too we look it because of the food and that’s city living
Everything we ate and drank was very flavorful and delicious. Our server was delightful and very helpful.
Simply stated, just not great food or service. We both ordered fajitas and the food did not come out hot. Also, I noticed other customer's fajitas also did not come out sizzling or hot. It seemed that the fajitas are not made to order and are premade...fajitas are then simply warmed and served to customers.
Drinks were good...one of the few positives.
Would not return.
The service was excellent, the food was tasty, hot and fresh. Timing was also good. The mojito was good, not
messed up our order.
Great margaritas and the short rib chimichanga was delicious
It was amazing as always. Food was excellent and service was great
The food and service at Santa Fe were excellent as always. Parking is easy and there are items on the menu to suit any dietary preferences. The staff is pleasant and helpful
The food and service was great!! Will definitely be back!!
Unexpectedly great! All staff were friendly, the food was delicious and served hot, and the price was very affordable.
Our meals were very good and we had excellent drink and food recommendations from our server.
Rice and beans were cold, waitress didn’t
Really know the menu , nachos and guacamole were great! Chimichanga soggy and greasy . I’d go back for nachos
Our server kept calling us guys. Did not like that. Asked him to stop, said he was sorry. Then did it again. Not pleased.
Better than El Camino or Del Pez...Tex Mex in a newer building.
Service was excellent! Great waiter, wish I remembered his name. We were there for an early dinner. The food was fine, not great, but what you expect for Mexican in this part of the world. Drinks were good not cheap but tasty.
Great food, great drinks excellent customer service. Definitely going back. Would highly recommend.
Perfect spot for outdoor dinning in Wilmington.
Came in at 8:45, they close at 10 so I came in knowing to be fast so the workers didn’t have to stay late even though I had a good amount of time. They were very unprofessional. Server came over to the table only once for drinks and didn’t come over again until we asked him to and didn’t even tell us when last call for food was. Therefore, the only food I got I had to take to go. And the last 15 minutes of the restaurant, they turned the lights on and made it very obvious they were trying to boot people to leave. Unless it is 10 I did not expect that type of service. Was very uncomfortable the whole night!
Excellent service. Very friendly staff. Food was high quality and delicious!
The staff was friendly; the dividers allowed for privacy and safety; the drinks were good.
Mother’s Day. Good experience. Would like more vegan options.
The food was terrific! Our waitress, Erin, was helpful , friendly and professional. First time here since it was redone. It was a great Mother's Day brunch!
Mother’s Day, great waitress and great food we will be back
We've ordered takeout several times during the pandemic, but this was our first dine-in experience. We enjoyed it very much. Lovely decor, tasty food, and fast service.
Me and my best friend have been here several times and we love it. However this particular time was amazing. I think it’s safe to say Nolan made this experience our best yet. Not knowing that we had been here before Nolan was very informative. I’m not to picking on drinks so I was perfectly fine with the house marg until Nolan blew me away with is description of the blood orange margarita which left me no option but to get that instead and of course it lived up to everything he said. Food was great as usual and when it came down to needing anything extra like condiments or more napkins Nolan was right there with it!!! It’s like he was reading my mind. I’ll definitely continue to dine here but from now on I don’t want any other server except NOLAN!!!!!
A few Food_Drink tems were a bit overpriced.
The food was delicious. Our waiter was courteous and attentive. All of that was overshadowed when a young lady interrupted my daughter mid sentence to tell me I was not allowed to bring my favorite taco sauce from home. When I explained that particular sauce was my favorite and was not offered by the restaurant she doubled down by saying it was not permitted. Her demeanor was not pleasant, and her tone was worse. I felt like she was interrupting a private moment with my family on our mother's day dinner and it appeared to be her intention to show my up. So I finally put an end to the conversation by saying "fair enough, I won't be back". She was quite cavalier in her tone when she said "okay".
It is ashame. She ruined a nice evening for my family. And an otherwise perfect dinner that the rest of your team had put together for us.
Service was terrible. Apps just ok. Street tacos were great. We basically had finished our apps before the margaritas had arrived. Same thing happened with 2nd round drinks and our entrees.
Great experience! Sara was so pleasant with our two tables total of 10 of us. She was awesome!! Definitely loved this Sante Fe over the Newark one. Food and drinks were great!
