Don't waste your money on this place! Food good, experience bad

Decided to have New Year's Eve dinner here based on reviews. Bad decision. I will say the food was very tasty ( with the exception of a poorly prepared steak-request was for "very well done, no pink you can't cook it too much" after sending it back twice, (very short time in kitchen, very charred... read more

Planned this for over 2 weeks to have a nice New Years Eve dinner with 3 other friends. The food was very good and drinks just OK. One of the managers was standing behind our table talking loud for a long time which was annoying. He seemed intoxicated or just a loud personality. That sort of put a damper on... More

The portions of the dinners were very large, more than my daughter and I could eat. The staff is amazingly friendly.

Well decorated and cozy, this place is a gem. Everything was excellent, including the service. The Steak Frites with au poivre was some of the best in the state. The creamy butternut squash soup was out of this world. The wine list was ridiculously long so we very happily ordered by the glass. The portions were perfect and we couldn't... More

Conveniently located near the square, Bistro 315 was a wonderful surprise. Cozy atmosphere, professional, friendly service and excellent food. We chose this as a compromise, since I had a late, heavy lunch, and was looking for something light, and my husband wanted something substantial. The menu was perfect. I had a delicious kale salad and mussels (in a delicious broth).... More

While Bistro 315 was recommended to us we found it noisy, the server tried to push expensive wine and the onion soup and veal chop had no taste. I would skip this restaurant--there are much better choices in Santa Fe.

This place is awful. The food is awful, the prices are over the top. One feels as if you've been sucked into scam when you eat here.

Dropped in without a reservation Saturday evening. We arrived with five people.. The hostess had us seated immediately in a charming little room. However, when we walked into the room to sit, one of the servers sighed, letting us know she was not welcoming us. Wine after wine we ordered was not available. We finally settled for a bottle and...

Wonderful menu, including oysters. I had a pumpkin squash soup which was delicious. They also have a nice wine list and the staff was very friendly.

Ironically the oysters, smoked trout appetizer and dessert (pumpkin bread pudding) were the best parts of the meal. my scallops had zero flavor. Waitress was nice and helpful. Just to many great restaurants in town to pay so much for a 3 star meal - really more like 3.5 because of dessert and. the service. probably won't be back.
