"We have eaten twice at Walkers Grille, and they nailed every aspect of dining out both times. The space both inside and outside is lovely and attractive: modern, cheerful decor, good lighting, comfortable seating, talkable sound level. The service is also excellent: knowledgable, prompt, professional, and friendly. They obviously spend ample time choosing and training staff. The wine list is short but well balanced and reasonably priced, and the wine is stored properly. And the food is great: generous portions, perfectly prepared, great salads, veggies, meats, bread, and potatoes. No complaints except the schlep from just about anywhere, but there's free and ample parking. I only wish there were more options as good as Walkers Grille in the DC/NoVA area."

We strive to acquire organically grown ingredients for our creations including the freshest fruits and produce from local Santa Fe and New Mexican Farms.<br /><br />

"We enjoyed our quiet meal at Tabla on a night that was very busy and congested in Santa Fe. This was a welcome oasis of calm. The service was good but not fully informed on the dishes. The salads were very good. The bread was excellent and came with superb garlic hummus. Also excellent veggies, pork, calamari, and wine list. But some dishes had too much cream, and the waitress did not know or didn't mention that the dishes contained lots of cream, nor did the menu mention it. When asked specifically, they accommodated dietary concerns, but you won't be able to tell what you are going to get from the menu description and without asking specifically. Portions are big, making the value good even though prices are high."
