    Very pleasant restaurant for hotel and non-hotel guests. At beginning of meal we mentioned we said we would like coffee with dessert after we ate meal, but immediately after they cleared our dishes from our meal we were brought bill without asking about drinks/dessert ... especially annoying since we mentioned that we wanted this at the start. (restaurant only had 3 other tables filled so not trying to turn over table) Other service short falls that could be fixed with training.

    My husband and I love this place. The service was amazing however there was a workout class happening on the lawn just below us which made it a bit loud. However, still beautiful and still a wonderful time.

    Lovely restaurant with beautiful linens and details. Service was exceptional and food was high quality. Screaming child at next table was the only disturbance.

    We received the most amazing service from Karina - she was so attentive and thought of everything! The atmosphere is gorgeous - beautiful decor/lovely dishes - every little touch is there. The food did not measure up to this 5 star - but was still incredible - and to have gluten free options was such a bonus!! Food was 4 star - so paying 5 star price is not great, but overall would go here again. Incredible experience thanks to Karina!!!

    Lovely spot, wonderful service. But...don't let that pancake batter sit. I could have entered a disc golf game with them.

    I took my wife and our daughters to Greenfinch for lunch on Mother's Day and we had a great time. The restaurant is really pretty inside and out. We sat on the outdoor area overlooking the hotel courtyard, but the indoor area is open to the outdoor as well. The service was excellent, the manager, hostesses and servers were all so pleasant and helpful. Our food was great and came out quickly. We shared the burger and fries - both really good, the cobb salad with chicken - also really good but a little less dressing would be better, and the buttermilk pancakes with strawberries which were very good. I had a palomo and my wife had a cappuccino, and we enjoyed everything we ate and drank. I will definitely go back and will take family or friends who are in town visiting. The ambience is excellent.

    Went here for Mother’s Day, the hotel is lovely. It stopped there, burnt bacon, over cooked patched eggs, and got the bill without being asked if we wanted anything else. Sorry, I won’t recommend going here. Ruined my Mother’s Day :-(

    For a hotel restaurant it’s decent, nothing spectacular or noteworthy. Drinks were nice, but food was on the bland side and lacked creativity. If you’re staying at the hotel it’s convenient, but don’t come here for just the restaurant.

    Good food but service was terrible. Waiters were very unfriendly and inattentive, almost act like they are being forced to be there. We were surprised to see such bad attitude at estancia hotel. For the price level of the food you would expect better service & friendlier staff.

    We had a lovely brunch right after our massage at The spa. I made reservations so that we could sit on the patio outside that looked over the beautiful courtyard. We ordered an omelette and the Cochinits pibil quesadillas and they Were delicious. Our server and host were great and very Polite. Overall a nice relaxing experience.

    Although I am a local, I often forget what a great resource the Estancia Hotel and spa are. Girlfriends and I had a very nice getaway, starting with lunch at Greenfinch.

    The Greenfinch has a nice atmosphere inside as well as a lovely balcony area where one can look out over the grassy fountain area of the hotel. Charming and tasteful. My avocado toast was tasty. Only downside was that on this day their specialty coffee machine was not working. I would recommend this place and I would go again.

    5 course Valentines day menu was awesome. Harpist was playing great music and Chris our server was amazing! Only negatives were the price of the meal and that I was charged twice, once on opentable as prepaid and then at the restaurant via check. Manager knew nothing about the prepay and I showed him the bank account charge. Not a HUGE deal for me but frustrating nonetheless.
