Wonderful ambiance...an old house converted into a restaurant. You can dine indoor or in a open room that overlooks the garden and patio. The flavors are complex and multi layered. The dishes are beautifully prepared and reflective of the colors and artistry of the city. The crispy oysters were delicious and the combination of vegetables and nuts worked wonderfully. I... More

Came here for lunch during the Indian Market and has a Mango and Crispy Shrimp salad that was not crispy. The flavor was there but the batter was soggy and tempura is supposed to be crunchy. Maybe they were too busy to handle all the orders but alot was left to be desired.

The ambiance is wonderful, the food is great, the service is superb, and wine list is amazing! What more do you want in a restaurant? We ate here for our anniversary dinner and had a wonderful time. They have added an outdoor patio and sunroom which give you a lovely view of the gardens around the restaurant. It is a... More

The food and service here are top notch. We were lucky enough to be able to eat in the garden and I highly recommend spending an evening here. The term casual elegance really fits the restaurant. Staff was helpful without being overbearing and added to the evening. The food is light and fresh, great taste and just right for a... More

Dining in this restaurant was a highlight of our trip to Santa Fe. The food was perfect in everyway. Our waitress, whose name escapes me (and I regret this because she deserves recognition) was very attentive and understood our time contraints.

This is a wonderfully relaxing place, beautifully designed with elegant food. The presentation of the dishes is sensational, but it is great value and ample portions, not just a "show" with tiny bits of this and that. The staff is hard working, efficient, crisp and accommodating. Not a place to skip while in Santa Fe!

We had a family outing at the Restaurant Martin in Santa Fe. It was a beautiful sunny day and we took advantage of it by eating on their outdoor patio. My Tempura Shrimp and Mango salad was one of the best salads I remember. Everything about it was outstanding from the light and crispy tempura coating, to the tasty mangoes... More

Simply the best high end restauarant in Santa Fe, and I've been to them all. Complex, imaginative, delicious and beautiful food. The restaurant interior decor reflects these same qualities.

It's pricey, but casual (no table clothes) and a treat. They have a huge wine list which seemed reasonably priced. Soup marked the workings of an inventive chef who knows what he's doing. We had the evening's special which was hallabut nicely presented with lots for flavours which didn't altogether make up for the mealy texture of the fish. Dessert... More

This was the best meal that we had in Sante Fe. Each plate is a work of art and the fusion of flavours is wonderful
