  • review rating 5  Today was the first time I have dined here, it is safe to say I will be back very soon. The best Tortilla Soup I've ever had! Owner is super friendly and a wonderful host, the service was just as good. Looking forward to my next visit already.

  • review rating 5  Santa Fe Mexican Grill is a local favorite and the food is always good We’ve been going to Santa Fe since it first opened and really like their food. In the summer, it’s great to sit out on their deck Highly recommend Santa Fe

    review rating 5  Yes I am a star heavy reviewer... that said, we really enjoyed our meal here. The place was quite full and the servers were hustling to get food served but they took care of us efficiently. We started with the ceviche appetizer and it was exceptional. The tortilla soup was very flavorful and my chili verde burrito was huge and delicious. Plenty of leftovers!!

  • review rating 5  Cozy little restaurant with good food, drinks and service. Some of the best Mexican food hands down and the most friendliest place to eat.

    thumb Ted Franklin

    review rating 5  Our go-to place for standard Mexican faire. Love the outdoor seating in the summer. Good food, good drinks, good people. Prices are standard for similar restaurants in the area and I think the quality is a bit higher.

    thumb Jennifer Townsend

    review rating 5  A wonderful place to celebrate with friends. EXCELLENT authentic Mexican cuisine. The service is the best. Many good restaurants still treat you like a customer; the Santa Fe treats you like family.

  • review rating 5  Been coming to this restaurant since they opened. The most authentic in the greater Seattle area. A hidden gem💎 and wouldn't have it any other way 😋

    thumb Kenneth Carter

    review rating 5  Made in time for Happy Hour. $4.00 for 16oz beer on tap. Hard to beat that price for good selection of mexican beers. No HH food menu though. Prices are moderately priced. Two of us food bill was $34 excluding tax and tip. Good size portions, each took container of leftovers home. There is outside seating when its nice out. Inside area tight but adequate. Staff is friendly. We will come again.

    thumb Trina Miller

    review rating 5  The food is great and the owner is very nice. The cost for their lunch specials is reasonable and keeps us coming back.

  • review rating 5  For nearly two years I have driven past here. Was feeling in the mood for mexican cuisine. Figured I'd try this place out. Parking appeared to be tight. Luckily, someone was leaving as I got there. Immediately after entering, I was greeted and seated. No wait time. Got the menu, had just the right amount of time to glance at the drinks - the Cadillac Margarita is AMAZING. But I think it may be a pre-mix(?). Few minutes go by,I'm ready to order. I was a burrito but I want to change it. The waitress suggested a different burrito and switch the meat. It was an excellent suggestion. Showed that she really knew what she was talking about. The burrito was extremely tasty. Strongly recommend this place. 20/10
