“Good food, very slow service”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The server tried too hard to help with the wine list. This took precedence over bringing water, bread, or taking an order for apps. It became a little too tedious of a task, she couldn't move forward with anything till the wine was ordered. I think she had too many tables and was trying too hard with each one. Overall the food was good, but a bit pricey for what it was.

“What a Treat!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

On a cold night last week-end, we made our first trip to Restaurant Martin. Parking is not plentiful but is worth any inconvenience. The warm welcome to an inviting dining room was the start of an exceptional evening. For at least thirty years Santa Fe has offered some excellent dining experiences. Martin has taken its place in the first rank of those venues. Service was attentive and timely without hovering. The dishes are elegantly presented; sauces are savory without being over-bearing. The wine list is more limited than some but excellent, and our server was well versed in the choices. Staying in the top five Santa Fe venues over time is a big challenge. We hope this kitchen and staff can because we will all be winners in that case.

“The Perfect Place for a Special Occasion!”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

I went here with my new fiance the day that I proposed. The service was splendid, the food was innovative and delicious and the entire restaurant (from Jennifer on down) went out of their way to make us feel like their special guests. Thank you!

“Very Well Done, We Will Be Back...”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Service is excellent. Food is inspirational and very well done. Menu is somewhat limited. Beautiful presentation. Atmosphere is okay, nothing special. Prices are expensive, but the quality is there. We went for lunch in order to try it and we definitely impressed. Next time we are in Santa Fe, we'll be back to try it for dinner.

We had a wonderful quiet dinner. We ate early so we were the only people there and felt like we were eating in our own restaurant! Our waiter was fantastic. The food was incredible. Our favorite dining experience in Santa Fe!
