About one a month I take a group of six to 315 and we always love it. The chef is delighted to accommodate special dietary needs and does a great job with vegetarian requests. Specializes in organic. The special each evening are written on a chalk board, always interesting and yummy. Try the sole - excellent!

The food is quite good. I definitely feel it was worth price. Lots of character. I've historically been a meat and potatoes guy...the fact that I keep thinking about their kale salad should tell you something. Everything I've had I've liked. I was a bit disappointed in the béarnaise served with my steak, but the herb butter made up for... More

315 seems to be one of several Santa Fe restaurants that is coasting on a reputation from long ago. After an awful meal last night (and of course after mentioning it the next day) I had two different friends who live in Santa Fe tell me they had similarly bad experiences sometime ago and no longer eat there. I wish... More

We've been to dinner here quite a few times over the years - it's one of our top 3 restaurants in Santa Fe. But we love the bar the most. Fantastic wines by the glass, and reasonably priced bar plates which are always fun and delicious. Last time we visited we had the Oysters - which were fresh and hit... More

One of the more intimate restaurants in Santa Fe. With the feeling of a true French Bistro, 315 has it down pat. Small, quiet intimate rooms, with small tables covered with the ever traditional white "butcher's paper", elegant crystal wine glasses and a large wine selection make this a cozy place to celebrate with that someone special. We happened to... More

We went to the Cakebread wine dinner and were extremely pleased, it had been quite a while since we had been to dinner at this restaurant. It has been remodeled and expanded and the rooms and atmosphere are quite lovely. The food that Chef Moskow prepares is well thought out and prepared, and for the wine dinner, the pairings were...

The restaurant itself is charming. There are a number of small, attractive dining rooms which give an intimate feel to the restaurant. They also have a large selection of wines to choose from. We were disappointed in the entrees. The three of us chose three different things Although my mussels were good, my husband's lamb stew was mediocre and my... More

Good food, but not up to the price. Prix Fixe at Xmas eve. Cost was over the top for a high end steak house. It might a Texan's idea of a Bistro. Mediocre Risotto. Very good service

The atmosphere of the restaurant is quite nice with some of the charm one expects of a true French restaurant. Truffle on the side for each of your dish of choice is a nice touch even when it comes with a high price tag. However, we found ourselves disappointed by the rather luke warm and bland food. Having kept good... More

Sat at the bar and had dinner with a friend. It was not great, but not bad enough to argue the bill, ya know? We just simply will never return-- that's all. Calamari was way undercooked and oily. Soup was drab. Skirt steak from the bar menu was ok, but not good enough to take home (I barely ate any... More
