“Dinner For Two is tops”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Santa Fe is known for it's fine restaurant and this rates with those at the top. Don't let the outside fool you. The inside is filled with warmth and charm. The menu choices are each very interesting and varied enough that it was hard to decide. I am a regular and have tried almost every main course. Each is prepared artistically and with the excellence of a well trained chef. The service is impeccable. It is a family run restaurant and you feel their dedication.

“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Sitting here on a monday nite, packed house (no wonder) service is seamless, very comfortable setting (not beat over the head with silver crosses or turquoise) food well above our expectations. A very well played out off-the-beaten track wine list. And best of all...crazy affordable. Thank you louise!

“Loved it”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

We wondered about the choice when our server seemed preoccupied the first time she appeared at the table, but after that everything was great.

We were there on a Friday evening and there was live guitar music during the majority of the time that we were there. It made for a pleasant ambience. The dining areas are sectioned and that makes for a reasonably intimate setting with enough space between the tables to feel fairly private.

With a menu offering smaller plates it allows for sampling more dishes and not feeling stuffed. We tried the Chile and Corn Chowder, Squash Salad, Melted Leek Tart, Braised Lamb Ribs, and the Crab Cakes. To finish we opted for the Warm Chocolate Torte. All of the dishes were nicely presented and properly seasoned. Fresh ingredients that all retained a distinct flavour and texture that shows the chef is interested in producing memorable food.

After all that and a glass of wine the price was very reasonable given what we had eaten and experienced. This one gets a solid recommendation.

“Great Find!”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

The name caught our eye while driving around. Our hotel nearby referred us here for Sunday dinner - GREAT choice. Fixed Price menu on Sunday is a great value, the service and food were both excellent!

“Romantic Dinner for Two in Santa Fe”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

After having read a number of reviews for Dinner for Two, my wife and I decided it sounded just like what we were looking for, especially since it was Sunday and D42 offers a Sunday Dinner price fix menu. Decor is soothing, modern, the service was very, very good and the food imaginative and well prepared. I was most impressed by the reaction of the staff and management to a couple that sent both of their meals back (over cooked)and continued to grouse throughout their meal. Professional, courteous and eager to make it right. Bravo, Dinner for Two. We will absolutely be back to this gem in Santa Fe. Not your typical southwestern cuisine. Our favorites? The caprese crab cake napolean and the haddock on corn pudding. The plum cobbler too!
