“Wonderful Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

The food and service here are top notch. We were lucky enough to be able to eat in the garden and I highly recommend spending an evening here. The term casual elegance really fits the restaurant. Staff was helpful without being overbearing and added to the evening. The food is light and fresh, great taste and just right for a summer evening. I am looking forward to trying the restaurant in the winter to see the difference in the dishes

“Highlight of our Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

Dining in this restaurant was a highlight of our trip to Santa Fe. The food was perfect in everyway. Our waitress, whose name escapes me (and I regret this because she deserves recognition) was very attentive and understood our time contraints.

“Memorable Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

This is a wonderfully relaxing place, beautifully designed with elegant food. The presentation of the dishes is sensational, but it is great value and ample portions, not just a "show" with tiny bits of this and that. The staff is hard working, efficient, crisp and accommodating. Not a place to skip while in Santa Fe!

“Great lunch stop, very nice courtyard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

We had a family outing at the Restaurant Martin in Santa Fe. It was a beautiful sunny day and we took advantage of it by eating on their outdoor patio. My Tempura Shrimp and Mango salad was one of the best salads I remember. Everything about it was outstanding from the light and crispy tempura coating, to the tasty mangoes and the crunchy wontons. Everyone in our group commented favorably about the meal and the service was excellent.

“Symphony in my mouth!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Simply the best high end restauarant in Santa Fe, and I've been to them all. Complex, imaginative, delicious and beautiful food. The restaurant interior decor reflects these same qualities.
