Great experience and wonderful food. The staff was high energy. Chef is a legend. His wife and COO makes sure everything is perfect.

We were lucky enough to get seats to the Stag's Leap wine dinner during the Wine and Chile Festival. Much hard work and last minute arrangements due to weather went into pulling off this dinner so efficiently. The food was fantastic, incredible presentation and of course the wine was well.. amazing. My only "complaint" would be at $150 per person... More

This restaurant has a reputation for outstanding food. It deserves it. We ate inside, too cold for the patio, and the service was top notch and consistent with the high food quality. It's the kind of place a foodie could love, but not over the top. Interesting preparations and beautiful presentations consistent with this level of experience.

A really memorable dinner. Extremely beautiful presentation, top sourced ingredients and creative preparation. Can't rate the tuna tartare high enough. The pork tenderloin was sensational. Excellent waitstaff. This place hit it out of the park.

This is a diamond! unbelievable food. The chef has been a finalist for the James Beard award six years in a row! The chilled pea soup is one of the best soups I've ever had. I had the fish special and it was so tasty. I was so surprised at how incredible my meal was, I would definitely go back... More

Had not been to Santa Fe in 7 years, so I was looking forward to checking out some new places. I'm glad I got a chance to eat here, but it was an underwhelming dining experience. The main dining room is horrendous. Glaringly lit and zero charm. Fortunately, we sat outside on the very lovely patio. It was late (for... More

Visiting Santa Fe for the opera so was pressed for time. We were a party of 3 couples. We passed through the indoor dining area, which looked very nice, to the outdoor area situated in a converted 3 car garage. A very nice space with roll up glass doors. Was a bit stormy that evening and we experienced a gentle... More

My husband and I were very disappointed with our experience at Restaurant Martin on the Saturday night of Labor Day weekend. We were seated on the patio, which is beautiful. However, that was the only plus. My husband ordered the lamb dish, which was simply disjointed. I ordered the tuna entree, expecting a high quality tuna steak to be seared... More

Six of us shared a slightly tight table for dinner here on a recent trip (we'd recommend parties of four or fewer for inside dining) and had a very good meal. Fresh tuna tartare well prepared and seasoned. My son enjoyed truffled orzo and cheese. A good meal, perhaps not a great meal, and noise level a bit on the... More

Walking distance from the square and some B&B's, this New Mexico classic has an excellent wine list and menu. Its chef is the only Santa Fe chef nominated this year for the James Beard award. Hint: the steak au poise is to die for!
