We tried many if the name restaurants (Tabla for lunch, Old House, Galisteo, Pasquale's and Dinner for Two). We even went back to dinner for two for a second night for a guaranteed great meal rather than just okay food at a new place. The lamb with pomegranate balsamic reduction was melt in the mouth delicious. The halibut with asparagus timbale on sweet pea could- to die for. The filet with pomegranate-balsamic reduction another lovely dish. And the warm chocolate cake with raspberry- chocolate ice cream. Ooh la la. Absolutely the best meal of them all!

Last night in Santa Fe and decided to visit Dinner for Two. Had walked past several times- outside pretty non-discript but oh the food!! Had a lovely table in the quiet indoor patio. Beautifully lit and intimate. Ordered table side caesar salad #2 as recommended- so delicious. The leek tart will be on my "try to copy list" and the veal piccata- the sauce was so creamy and delicately lemon and wine. The service was wonderful- attentive but not intrusive or demanding. If I lived here it would be on my most favs list. If I come back will definitely eat there again.

When you're ready for a break from green chile (or red), we highly recommend Dinner For Two. It's a little bit old school, even a little cheesy, with it's darkened dining rooms strung with Christmas lights, but that just makes it pleasantly different. The food is outrageously good. Not many places left that offer table side preparation. We chose halibut and lamb chops over the table side chateaubriand, but we did go for the caesar salad, undoubtedly the most exciting, lovingly prepared and delicious we've ever had. We also went head first into the warm butter bath of the table side bananas foster. This is our third time to Dinner for Two in as many trips to Santa Fe; we wouldn't miss it.

We ate at Dinner for Two April 7th. The food , service and atmosphere are always excellent. I had the seafood trio and my friends had the salmon. Everyone was really happy with their choice.
The iceberg lettuce salad was crisp and the bacon added a tasty treat. We all had the chocolate cake with ice cream and we were not disappointed. This restaurant is a consistent favorite with locals and rightly so. The prices are fair and the meals are delicious.

Looking for something other than typical NM cuisine than this is place to eat in Santa Fe. While you may question the outside, once you enter, you are met by a warm and cozy space, perfect for two (or more!) We had originally thought we would do the tapas for 2 but instead went with appetizers and a main course and shared a dessert. Waiters were very friendly and helped us enjoy our meal even more with an after dinner drink on the house! Reasonably priced with a good selection of wine and drinks. Definitely a place to go and return to when in the area
