Outdoor annex was so noisy you couldn't have a conversation. Server never checked to see how we liked our food, so we had to waive her down to say that lamb ordered medium was barely cooked. Smallest desserts possible for $11.-$17.

We were at Martin on a recent Saturday evening and everything was good. The atmosphere is attractive and quiet without being hushed and overly formal. The service was outstanding: gracious and helpful. The wine selection was also very good. When it comes to the food, the preparation and presentation are outstanding. The one qualification I would make is that virtually... More

Perhaps our expectations were too high, but Restaurant Martin wasn't all we'd heard it was. My starter soup was extraordinary, but our entrees, sides and desserts were just okay. Our experience certainly wasn't worth our $180 bill for two (and I'm pregnant and not drinking)! For a better value and better food, I'd go back to Santa Cafe time and... More

Went to this restaurant in the middle of the week and it was surprisingly uncrowned. It is not located in the most trendy section of Sante Fe, but the food and service were outstanding and the prices reasonable. I only wish we had returned there rather than trying out some other restaurants. - this rivaled the best in NYC and... More

Brought along our discerning LA friends for our first visit to Restaurant Martin. We were initially seated in the attractive outdoor dining area. There was a large birthday party forming. One of our LA friends started squirming. Within 5 minutes, the waiter came over and asked us if we might want to move elsewhere. Couldn't believe she anticipated the situation... More

We had a very good meal at Restaurant Martin. Although we were there on a Tuesday night, we were concerned at the few patrons we saw, until we discovered that there is a significantly expanded outside dining area.

We had a post wedding dinner for 17 at Restaurant Martin last Saturday and it was absolutely perfect! Two of our party own and operate Zedric's restaurants in San Antonio, TX and they were totally impressed by the delicious cuisine, flawless service and wonderful ambiance!

The food was very good as was the ambience. The service was a little slow and we had to ask the server several times to help us. But, the owner was excellent and drove us back to our hotel after dinner. The service was due only to that waiter, because the other severs seemed to be attentive.

Other diners came in and choose to eat outside. apparently there wasn't staff to work both areas. Our waitress was basically absent, helping other diners in the outside eating area. The food was...

This place seems to be a Geronimo wannabe, the prices aren't quite what they are at Geronimo's but the food doesn't measure up and the service is downright rude. Really wanted to like this place but when the server makes you feel like a nuisance then you know something is wrong.
