We had a delicious meal here, with mussels in a rich, creamy coconut milk sauce, and the evening's special elk tenderloin, perfectly prepared. We finished with a cheesecake for dessert that was intense and enjoyable.

The bar at Ristra is a treasure and you are made to feel welcome from the minute you enter.
Eight of us ate at the bar and I tasted a variety of the menu items. Each was delicious! I had the pork sliders that were just perfect. As a Santa Fe local I can recommend Ristra highly. Chris the bartender makes a mean martini.

I felt compelled to put in a good word for Ristra since having dinner there last Thursday (11/13) and being the only customers there. Granted, it was off season and very cold, but come on Santa Fe, this place is a jewel! We were treated like kings, the food absolutely the best quality and prepared by the hands of a master chef. We sampled six or seven different menu items and everything was a hit. Perhaps we got a little extra attention, but if I lived in Santa Fe, I'd eat there every night, crowds or not!

We went to "graze" on appetizers: Crispy calamari, duck leg confit, sautéed scallops. ALL excellent and the lovely thing is that when the chef heard we were sharing he split each selection onto two plates. We would go back!!

We've eaten there before and thought it would be worth another try. It was much improved. Nice wine list, too.

Only complaint: quite slow service. Friendly but slow.
