Yes, I know this is a steakhouse and I'm a vegetarian who occasionally eats fish. So, I suppose my review could be construed as biased from the outset. But consider this: Firstly, my Makers Mark & 7 was just fine as that is something hard to do wrong. Then came the bread, or what they touted as bread. These were about three inch strips of the thinnest bread fare I have ever eaten. If you held it between your thumb and forefinger, it drooped as as piece of overcooked asparagus. Next came the lobster bisque which was the highlight of the dinner. Very rich, very tasty with chunks of lobster within. I ordered the 8 oz Salmon, oven roasted on a cedar plank, and topped with cilantro pesto. I do not know what cleverness or presentation the proprietors thought the cedar plank would provide to the dish, but, as a practical matter, it was quite difficult to keep the slap of fish on the plank. Beside that, the salmon was quite blah, and undercooked in the middle. I finished off with the bread pudding. Good stuff, that. So, the experience was ho-hum, and if I'm ever in Taos I probably will forego another trip to Martyrs. He just wasn't that good for the cost of the meal. Oh, the waitress was quite bubbly and efficient.
