We enjoyed our dinner here on their patio. The food is very good and creative. They have a very nice wine list. Not all dishes come together for me. The pea soup was excellent, but the spring pea tortellini had a few too many elements that didn't all work together. The pork tenderloin was also excellent. The chocolate bavaroise was... More

This restaurant is high end. We've eaten dinner here three times and each time the food was prepared and served to perfection. For appetizers we've ordered the Sea Salt & Coffee Roasted Heirloom Beets, Summer Asparagus and Spring Pea Tortellini. All delicious. We've eaten the lamb, beef tenderloin, pork tenderloin and they were all prepared in interesting and yummy ways.... More

We had been meaning to try this place since moving back to Santa Fe. My husband knew the Chef and his brother as kids so he was interested in checking it out. It was amazing! Talk about a hometown boy making good, this Chef is truly World Class! This restaurant could stand its own in any big culinary city. There... More

My husband, our kids and I have been fortunate to have had many amazing culinary experiences in Santa Fe...However, Restaurant Martin absolutely surpassed them all tonight!!!! I'm a bit of a home chef, and have become acutely aware of plating, fresh/local ingredients, depth-of-flavors, ambiance, service and most importantly the WOW FACTOR when the food hits the palate! We sat outside... More

I had dinner here last night with 3 friends. For appetizers, one of us had the spring pea tortellini, one the grilled asparagus and the other the roasted heirloom beets. All were well prepared, well seasoned and delicious. The only off-putting part was the inclusion of a soft poached egg with the asparagus. It might have worked better if the... More

Starting with the small parking lot which was near impossible to exit due to cars blocking the driveway to the mediocre wait staff. Dinner for 5. Wine choices adequate...waiter not very knowledgable, but that was ok. Ordered some sparkling water as well as regular tap water with ice. Another server brought sparkling water as well as bottled still water that... More

We chose this restaurant because it was right next to our Bed and Breakfast. We had a nice meal, but I think there are so many good restaurants in Santa Fe, this one might need to update it's menu a bit to get it to "excellent" status. Ok service. Good food.
