The oysters were wonderful, the foie gras amazing...the wine list was great! Eat in the bar area or in the dining rooms. We will go back here just for the wine and appetizer list , alone!

A very small bar in a small restaurant with a great bartender who only needs to find a smile more often. Very, very good food and drink. We will be back.

we used the appetizer menu as "tapas" style and had a very nice meal, sharing five items. Great seafood. Fabulous ambiance. Service was not what we would have expected, mediocre for this calibre of restaurant. Seemed to cater to a dedicated group of local clients who garnered the most attention.

Housed in an old adobe house on The Santa Fe Trail, this is an amiable restaurant with a small bar/lounge area and small intimate rooms for dining. Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, it has a strong local following. It competes well with other Santa Fe restaurants for service and food quality. I enjoy the bar area with its high-top...

What is not to like about this quiet restaurant across the street from a New Mexico State office building?! Knowledgeable servers - smart about the food and wine, as well as the variety of hard liquors and mixed drinks. The bar menu, with its $8 plates, often suitable for sharing, is flat out terrific. We went twice in the course... More

Great food, great wine, cool place, with good atmosphere, and a perfect service. Loved this place. If I ever come back to Santa Fé, I'm sure I'll be back to this place.

If they had something between Average and Very Good that would be the choice. Here's why. Food is good, maybe inching close to very good. Its just that its straight forward. Now, that's fine and must take it in the context of Santa Fe which has some stellar establishments. Nothing wrong with straight forward good. That said, its a little... More

We were on a walking excursion in old town Santa Fe and inspected the menus of a few restaurants. We decided to try Bistro 315. We were pleased with the service and the quality of the food. It is a quaint dining area. Shannon served us. She is affable, attentive and helpful in the selection of the fare for the... More

Mudh improved since they put a full bar in and the food has also improved. It's a French menu, and the steak/frites is always good or the duck confit. Much improved in the decor which was getting rather tattty.. has an outside area in the summer.. Fun place..
