I took my wife here to celebrate her birthday and Restaurant Martin delivered in a way that separates it from other high end establishments in Santa Fe. The decor is understated, the service is highly accommodating and professional while still friendly.
We prefer fine dining to be more about the food and service and less about the trappings and pretension. Restaurant Martin exceeded our expectations in all these vital categories.
The food was the ultimate in freshness, inventiveness, presentation and timing.
We enjoyed a relaxing, well-paced meal and felt well cared for the entire time without the coyness and air of superiority so many others overcompensate with to mask excelling at the fundamentals.
A very nice experience and we look forward to our next wonderful experience.
I know some may shudder at my frequent inclusion of "we" in my reviews, but we always share nearly everything we order, so I'm comfortable sharing my opinion as a "we".
