The filet was perfect, nicely crusted. It was fun to see son, mom and dad working side by side. They like to prepare food table side, we had the bananas Foster and they were great. They make and smoke their own sausage and bacon and it is wonderful. Oh, the steak came with a pomegranate and balsamic sauce that was... More

A little out of the way, but well worth the effort to find. Service was attentive and the food was very good.

I work in a tourist area and am constantly being asked to recommend places to eat in Santa Fe. In a place where a bad meal is hard to find Dinner For Two is a stand out place to dine. It fulfills everything you would want in a fine dining establishment and has the plus of having very reasonable prices.... More

We stumbled on Dinner for Two several years ago when it was Restaurant Week in Santa Fe. Ever since, when we want an outstanding dinner, we return here--perfect every time. From the Caesar salad prepared at the table (YOU get to choose the level of garlic, anchovies, etc.) to the Chateaubriand, the meals have been exquisite and perfectly prepared, the... More

We have been coming to Dinner for Two every time we come to Santa Fe from DC. Tonight we hit their Sunday night dinner and once again they have outdone themselves. I had the award winning mushroom soup and my husband had the French onion. We were both in heaven. Then I had the mixed seafood with scrumptious crab cakes,... More

I came here for dinner and am glad to say I was so pleasantly surprised. I love the building itself, very funky and eclectic. It's a narrow restaurant, runs long, and decorated with art I actually enjoyed looking at. The ambiance was comfortable and not stuffy; a guitarist strummed slowly not too far from our table. Upon arrival we were... More

Don't be deceived by the outside of the restaurant. Once we entered, we were greeted by a lovely hostess. We were made to feel very welcome as servers and kitchen staff either nodded to acknowledge our arrival or smiled and said hello. We were seated near a gentleman who placed acoustic guitar the entire evening. We started and ended our... More

We just came home from a delicious and delightful evening at Dinner for Two. This restaurant won the soup contest at an annual Santa Fe event, and their truffle mushroom soup was delicious. That was my entree. The salad for the evening was spinach, arugula, and lots of vegetables, and it was perfect. Our friends had the fried chicken and... More
