Lunch for ten with limited time

Ten of us had just an hour for lunch and this restaurant delivered admirably. Our waitress was able to give us separate checks, and the kitchen was promp in the presentation of ordered dishes from the lovely menu. Would definitely go back for a more leisurely lunch

Wonderful outdoor dining area with the finest service I've experienced in Santa Fe - a charming accurate descriptive waitress (Wendy?). The food was good but not great, tastes not as fine as Julia at the Posada. I recommend the chilled pea soup. Oysters tempura style disappointed - mushy. Sorbets were dandy, "Black Forest" not so great. Fine wine service, reasonable... More

The food here is absolutely superb. Eclectic menu that you do not feel can work but does beyond all expectation. My spouse and I had the tuna tartare, beet salad,burimundi and lamb shoulder. All excellent, indeed mouth watering. However, everything else was okay but not great. The room,since the patio was full, was,how can I put it, ugly. Not very... More

The menu at Restaurant Martin is impressively creative and each dish proved equally delicious. The chef recently completed a cookbook which captures the complexity and thought that goes into each dish. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our first visit but do think of it as a special occasion venue rather than somewhere we would feel comfortable regularly having dinner.... More

We dined here the last night in Santa Fe and were drawn here because of the chef who is a 7 time James Beard nominee. He just published a cookbook yesterday. I enjoyed the pork tenderloin with carrots, pea pods and rye hush puppies and the vegetarian tasting is yummy as well. Our service was outstanding with Lance who tended... More

We decided to eat at Restaurant Martin based upon many favorable reviews. We ordered from their Local Favorites menu. My wife and I had duck confit on spring pea risotto ($13), and our friends had organic chicken quesadillas ($14) and north east cod fish and chips ($15). Our food was beautifully prepared. Our server was attentive and professional. With drinks... More
