“Can't Believe This Was Our First Visit!”
Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

It's "Restaurant Week" in Santa Fe and many restaurants are offering prix fixe dinners in addition to their regular menus.
Based in the PF menu we selected D42 as our friends had dined here before and thought we would enjoy it. At $30, the set menu was a very good value.
The four us ordered a combination of the following:

Crab cakes or shrimp with mole dip
French onion soup or leafy salad
Lamb shank or veal piccata

The portions were generous (not reduced due to price) and everything selected was delicious.

The wine selection was good and reasonably priced. We make note of this because there are some restaurants who do not offer decent wine at reasonable prices and we typically do not return due to this practice.

Whether visiting or a local, Dinner for Two is well worth the sometimes challenging quest for parking if you don't any in the lot down West San Fracisco Street.

“Beautiful setting, great food”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Don't let the outside fool you....walk in to an enchanting environment with excellently prepared food, elegantly served. I would say this is one of Santa Fe's best secrets. Sunday nights are a bargain with very reasonable prices.

“Valentine's Dinner for Two!”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

With an offering of a chateaubriand for two, Maryland crabcakes or filet minion to list a few dining choices, my husband and I celebrated our Valentine's eve happily and satisfied. The ambiance is small and elegant. A lovely, down town location. The musician was a Spanish guitarist/singer that we totally loved.

“It's sooo good!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

I love D42, it never dissappoints. Ate dinner there Sat. Eve. The food is always delicious. Had filet mignon, veal piccata, soup, salad and a bottle of wine. Although it was very busy, the service was excellent. Can't wait to go back! Pamela H.

We enjoyed our valentine's dinner, it was cooked with perfection along with delicious wine. Dessert was amazing and more than just melting in your mouth, but a pleasure.
