Love the food at this restaurant, always delicious. More importantly most dishes will be graciously modified to accommodate gluten-free.

This is a small restaurant with close tables. They had changed their menu from what I had seen online, so no Brussels sprouts which I love and wanted to try there. Instead I had a scallops appetizer with gnocchi and my husband had chicken. I'm always a little cautious about ordering scallops - they can be overcooked and rubbery -... More

I have dined at Martin's innumerable times and have been thrilled each time. It becomes clear as you experience his cuisine that Martin has a capacious and penetrating understanding of food. Combinations you would never imagine are instinctive to him. This is why, when diners occasionally find some plates complicated, I respectfully disagree, just as I would not argue with... More

We were staying at a bed and breakfast right next door to this restaurant, so we just walked a few feet to get there. The restaurant is like a small house with a few tables in each room. The menu is a little complicated but the dishes were not. The butternut squash bisque with shrimp roulade and gougeres was truly... More

The restaurant was very accommodating when we had an extra member to our party show up and they had to move us. They did this cheerfully. Five people- five different dishes and everyone was beyond pleased. My beet salad for an appetizer was small but delicious and my glazed chicken breast with fingerling potatoes and snap peas was wonderful. Other... More

Our waiter was prompt, fothcoming with information and caring Trying something different we had the pork belly appetizer. It was new for us and we certainly would have again It came with carmelized onions and... More

My wife and I dined here for the first time after reading mostly good reviews here on Tripadvisor. Service was great, our dinners were also very good. Not the best meal we've had, but it was a nice dining experience. As far as Santa Fe restaurants go it's in the price range for a nicer restaurant, but still a little... More

We had a group dinner for 24 here. The service was good and the limited menu we used for the group (3 entrees) was creative and attractively presented, but uneven. The salmon was well prepared but unremarkable, the tenderloin was overcooked, and the deserts were tasty. It might be better if not dining with a group of 24.

Four of us left the restaurant after the delivery of three horrendous entrees. This experience was unlike another which I reported on this site as great. The duck meal to be shared arrived almost raw and not divided nicely into two plates as the kitchen should have done. The tuns was served cold, and the salmon dish was tasty but... More
