“Great Food, Fairly Reasonable Prices”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Food and service were great. I had the duck breast in a spicy raspberry sauce and because it was hot paired it with the rose wine by the glass. I highly recommend it! I also had a beet salad that was generous in size and very tasty. Dessert was not as memorable as the entree and salad. Beware, there is very little parking nearby.

“Food good, terrible service”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Ristra has been a favorite of ours for years, and the food is still generally excellent, but the service on our recent visit was atrocious. When mentioning the situation to friends, one said they continue to have excellent experience; the other said no, their recent experience was also terrible. Hopefully new ownership will take charge soon and whip the place back into excellent shape. In the meantime, not recommended.

“Quaint and Quiet”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

There are lots of very good restaurants in Santa Fe and Ristra is certainly among them. It's not unusual for my husband and I to go to Ristra for a romantic lunch. Both the patio and indoor dining are very nice. I also bring friends to Ristra for special occasions. The service is friendly and knowledgeable and the food is very tasty.

“Superb food, professional, friendly staff”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Someone who lives in Santa Fe recommended this as her favorite restaurant, and we could see why. The food was delicious, the service excellent, the restaurant peaceful. Not too many vegetarian offerings, but the waiter offered to have the chef make something specially for my daughter. She ended up with the veggie menu item. She's a big tempura fan, and I'm not, but the squash blossom tempura was to die for. The next time I'm in Santa Fe, I'll return for sure.

“We'll Return!!!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Here is a restaurant off the beaten path on a small street. It's actually a little house; however, once inside, the charm of small rooms with a few tables in each one is the unique feature. There is a wonderful bar with booths toward the back of the house. Patio dining is also available and it's a wonderful place if the weather permits. The food is unbelievably delicious, and we really loved the mussels as a first course. Service was great and appropriate and everything was timed to perfection! Don't miss out on a wonderful evening!
