This restaurant came highly recommended as the best place to eat in Santa Fe. We made a reservation of our last night of our trip here. My husband ordered salad and the steak. The Salad was boring and the steak was fine. I had the beet salad and mac and cheese. The salad was small and lacked flavor and the... More

Restaurant Martin first off, is expensive so you go in on the assumption that it will always be fabulous. Sometimes it is. Our meals looked lovely but came out almost cold and were...somewhat bland and the meat we had was once again tough. The service was average too...we don't need to be friends, but it should probably be at least... More

This was our New Year's Eve dinner choice. The chef is a James Beard finalist and the menu online looked fantastic. However, we had only a prix fixe menu on this occasion, without prices. There were four courses, plus dessert, and many creative combinations in each choice. The courses were beautiful to behold and almost jewel like in size! Each... More

We went to this venue, because in the past ( I must say it was a long time since our last dinner visit) we always enjoyed this place. So we made reservations for Christmas Eve dinner. We got our table forty five min. late, ( and we were not alone), with no apologies, and no word about this incredible snafu.... More

Have been to the restaurant a few times with great luck. However we were there for Christmas Eve dinner and the service was very very slow. Seemed that they booked a few too many tables. We were sat about 45 minutes late and got our food about 90 minutes from our reservation time. Seemed that the kitchen was overwhelmed trying... More

Quiet, classy atmosphere with professional but not snobby service. Creative dishes--although the dessert did not deliver. Wine very reasonable and nice selection. Definitely recommend

Restaurant Martin did not fail to delight us once again. The atmosphere was cozy, the servers knowledgeable, and the food was just great. The real standouts were the lobster risotto which was wonderfully nuanced, and the Apple Napoleon Tart (which came with it's own mini spatula, in case we were inclined to lick the plate) -- this was one of...

I started with Oysters tempura and found it to be the perfect appetizer, size and flavor balanced, wanted more, wanted to lick every crumb and morsel from my plate but refrained. Wow, to keep the oyster warm and intact without making it rubbery and getting a perfect tempura on the outside takes more talent and equipment than i've got! YUM!... More

Completely disappointed. Bad service, regular salad options, overpriced wines and don't get me started with the dessert options...

We enjoyed Christmas Eve dinner at this local hot spot. The special occasion menu was creative with a wide variety of choices. The service sparkled and the food was memorable. The recommended 2007 Barolo was outstanding. We are trying to find it on line for our cellar. We shared the parsnip soup. I had the beet salad followed by the... More
