    I don't have any photos of Sacromonte, but you can trust me that it is absolutely beautiful. Decorated in the most tasteful *estilo folklórico*, it's really high-end lovely. The table settings are also lovely, very old-style *manteles largos*. It's not pretentious in any way, just simple, colorful, real Mexican elegance in a late 1800s Mexican house that's been converted to a restaurant.

    Service is also old-style, very attentive but not obtrusive. The waiters are mostly older men, well-trained in table service, dressed in black and white.

    The menu is high-style Mexican, with traditional dishes updated a bit and presented beautifully. I've only eaten well the several times I've dined at Sacromonte.

    The restaurant has at least two dining rooms, possibly three. The last time I was there was with the director of the OFJ (the Jalisco Philharmonic Orchestra) and the four operatic soloists from the opening night production of the Verdi Requiem, along with two or three relatives of the soloists. It was a charming evening made more charming by delicious conversation and the delicious dinner we ate.

      I concur.Beautiful restaurant and classic alta cocina.My Filete Azteca was divine. A fine cut of steak atop a grilled nopal covered by a chihuahua cheese accompanied by a chile guajillo sauce.

        I've got some photos but they're a little dark. Let me see... I have one of the restaurant and then a few shots of the food- the rose-petal quesadillas, the chicken in mole sauce and the vegetarian "crepe". We were there the other night again and it was quite good (again).
