Where to begin? My wife's sister and husband had come from Idaho for Christmas in Santa Fe. Their 27th anniversary was on the 27th. We wanted to find a nice restaurant for them to celebrate. Based on the reviews we read here and the menu we decided on Amaya. First issue was only two of us were going to have wine and they only had one red on the menu in a half bottle, and they were out of that selection. Maybe two or three half bottle choices would avoid that situation. We ordered an appetizer which was brought at the same time as the salad. Bread was brought after the salad with butter straight from the refrigerator, which is really difficult to spread on cornbread. Two of the four entrees were brought and the second two 5 minutes later. My sister in law ordered the Green Chile French Dip which came with no chiles and au jus that was to salty to eat. We sent it back and everyone else was done by the time the replacement arrived. My wife ordered the New Mexico Lamb Chops that consisted of three chops which were maybe 1oz. a piece and overcooked and slightly burned. My Tempura Relleno was very good but it was the only thing on the plate no garnish or presentation at all. The last thing ordered was the Quail. It was liked but the "rainbow chard" that was one of the sides was really most likely kale and certainly not rainbow. The manager did comp the French Dip and did finally bring the lemons for our waters, being the third request and coming at the end of the meal. For a meal for 4 that came to $140 I would expect better. I also might suggest to the owner that long sleeve t-shirts worn by the wait staff might be a bit to casual for the image they are trying to portray.
Everything was perfect.  Food was divine, from tender elk ribs to the kids chicken bites.  Wait staff is not hovering around, some people might say that is slow service, but everything came out when it needed to (ate in an hr and enjoyed company, not rushed at all). If the special is the ribs when you visit, ORDER it. It's like a barbacoa made in gourmet heaven.
