Julia – A Spirited Restaurant & Bar

SPIRITED DINING AND DRINKS IN SANTA FE

In 1882, Abraham Staab, a European immigrant who became one of Santa Fe’s most prosperous merchants, built a Victorian mansion on property that now belongs to La Posada. Abraham’s elegant wife, Julia, entertained local society and visiting dignitaries in incomparable style. Legend has it that Julia so loved her home that she has never left it.

Today, we celebrate Julia Staab as our muse and honor her name and legendary hospitality with the opening of Julia, A Spirited Restaurant & Bar. The restaurant features innovative, locally sourced dishes as well as an extensive selection of fine wines and spirits.

"Julia's is exactly that, a truly spirited restaurant. From the moment you walk in, the decor and warm atmosphere is notable. Set in a warm setting with soft lighting that compliments the natural light coming in from the large windows and classy furnishings, Julia's proves to be quite inviting. The staff was incredibly friendly as we were greeted by the host, 3 servers and the manager! Please note that it was an early and slow night with very little people there.
The food is amazingly fresh and tasty. The calamari was very fresh and flavorful which was a great way to start off dinner. Though there are not oceans nearby, the fish was incredibly fresh and tasty. The Short Rib Parpadelle was VERY tasty as the meat melted off the bones. Good size portion. The highlight was the crepes for dessert which was sweet but not overbearingly so. The servers checked on us regularly and was always kind but not disruptive.
Julia's is a fantastic restaurant that I look forward to visiting again in the near future!"

"Wine pour was short and not very good you could do much better with wines by glass and better value. I would have had two glasses priced better and better wine.
Chili Stew not authentic. Main dishes where very well prepared,
salads excellent. Good friendly service, warm atmosphere.

"Nice restaurant, great food and service overall. The menu was just changed at New Years with some great things taken off like the Adobe chocolate desert. But some great casual food was added bringing down the overall average price. Things like burgers and french ham and cheese and soup that they did not have before. So I think it probably more accessible to more people and tastes than it used to be.
I did have a issue where they cancelled my reservation as we were already eating so I had to go back and make a effort to get my points. Not sure why that occurred. Maybe check your email before leave dinner to be sure it was just a fluke."

"We ate here the day after Christmas. Green chili stew was delicious as was the spinach artichoke dip. New York strip was done perfectly. The chicken pasta was very good. All the food was very good and very reasonably priced. You MUST have the Peanut Butter S'mores tart, probably one of the best desserts EVER if you like chocolate and peanut butter. Excellent experience, wonderful attentive staff. Highly recommend. Prices were very reasonable."

"Was very put off by the restaurant manager who told me I had to pay them a charge of $25 for canceling my reservation less than 48 hours ahead. Really she was very rude and after that type of treatment I would never go there . I am a local here and have many people visit, so their loss."

"We read great reviews for this restaurant in our local newspaper. Unfortunately, we were greatly disappointed with the food, and especially the service which was extremely S L O W. There was only one other table with diners so the restaurant was not busy but the service was terrible. The food was good, but not excellent for the prices charged and the menu was extremely limited in item choices. As this point I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone that I wished to have a pleasant dining experience."

"The issue was that the waiter had no knowledge of the menu whatsoever, he even brought out a binder of the recipes to try to answer simple questions. Why not ask the chef? Also, the salad portion was very small. My food was somewhat cold although the flavor was good. Nice atmosphere but I would not go back."

"The dinner served on Thanksgiving was great, but extremely expensive. We would not be able to recommend it to just anyone. Considering how much we paid and how early we made our reservations, being seated behind the large table in the bar wasn't ideal.
Our breakfast there the next morning was average and very over priced - $40 for oatmeal and fruit for two. We would never do that again.

"Their knocking the ball out of the park. The ribeye was incredibly well prepared. The best beef steak in Santa Fe. Asparagus and patato-au-grautin were exceptional. Pumpkin mousse was the best dessert we've had this year. Ben Marco Malbec was overpriced, as we've had that a nice restaurants in the $45 range."

"First, the food was very good, especially the secret - not-on-the-menu- fois gras appetizer. Monica our server was excellent, as was the rest of the wait staff. The wine menu had many of my favorites. Our issue was with the way we were greeted at the front door: the host was condescending and rude. They appeared to have the same host for both restaurants at the hotel and I don't think the person represented Julia's the way the owner would like. The artwork was exceptional in the restaurant and La Posada, but beyond that it wasn't a very spirited place."

"Monday night in off-season. Service was par, but not outstanding. We had the scallops, filet, veggie sides, and lobster mac and cheese. Good food, but again, not outstanding. We left satisfied and enjoyed our evening. Everything was good, but probably not the best 'value vs. experience' in Santa Fe."

"We were in Santa Fe to celebrate our 60th anniversary.
We were joined by family and friends.
After searching the many fine restaurants in Santa Fe on line,
we chose Julia's at the La Posda Hotel.
Every thing was perfect,starting with the warm welcome with the parking valets, the hostess,
the wait staff and the chef.
For a special occasion I highly recommend Julia's

"A fair restaurant to visit, unfortunate because we were hoping for great service, great staff and great food. We love La Posada and sad that the new restaurant Julia was just a little bit of a miss for us. The menu selections did not stand out, the staff luke warm. Unfortunately, the dining room cold. We did appreciate that the waiter did offer our 12 year old the patio menu of which she had the Caesar Salad and enjoyed. (after the restaurant host told her he could not give her the children's menu since only children 7 and under can receive it, fine but the finesse was lacking completely and came away as harsh)The top overs were of good taste with green chile and honey butter. My husband's sole was good, however with all of the amazing choices in Santa Fe and restaurants of a great caliber with stellar staff in this town Julia has room to grow, of which we hope they do."
