My wife and I stumbled upon Dinner for Two when lookng for a nice dinner spot before attending the opera. I've always been lucky in finding unique and interesting places to eat and Dinner for Two was no exception. The service was great - we were greeted warmly by the woman who I believe is the owner and she seemed genuinely happy to serve us. The young man who waited on us knew every detail of the menu and his recommendations were right on target. Every dish was superb on the four course menu. And the value was terrific. We have paid far more for inferior food and service. The two women playing classical music in the background were a nice touch and added to the pleasant dining atmosphere. We look forward to a return visit to Dinner for Two next time we are in Santa Fe.

I tried the top four restaurants on the Travel Advisor Santa Fe restaurant rankings this week, then ate at Dinner For Two tonight. I liked Dinner For Two best of all. I enjoyed everything: decent appetizer ($10 crab cake), great hot bread, tasty and hot soup (mushroom), good salad, excellent entre ($24 Alaskan sea bass), excellent service, live classical music. The price was reasonable compared to other Santa Fe restaurants. It's three blocks west of the plaza. Perhaps that explains the reasonable prices, but it was an easy walk. Casual dress the norm, but they're going for the fine dining look: waiters wear tuxedos and they have black table cloths. Try it. I think you'll like it. I did.

This is a great place to eat and not just for 2 people. There were large parties and singles there.The menu features a selection of 4 courses for each person, you chose which selection you want, and the prices are great. The service, food and ambiance was tremendous in a city with many great places to eat. We would go back again. It was also right around the corner from where we were staying, so we got a complementary appetizer!! It is a little gem of a restaurant.

You won't find this charming restaurant in all the guide books but you will find it busy with lots of locals. Have you ever felt like you got poor service when dining as a twosome? Well, this is the place for you. As the name implies, they cater to parties of two, although they have plenty of larger groups too. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and the atmosphere very tranquil. The service is always attentive and the menu is varied and affordable. We like the fusion section, 4 groups of "small plates" that you can choose from to create your own dining experience, but they also have full dinner selections, delicious desserts and a great wine list. Several items are prepared tableside. All bread is housemade and if you don't order dessert, you will be presented with the owners homemade ginger cookies. Very yummy. On Friday & Saturday nights they often have live dinner music. Currently on Sundays, they offer a 3 course dinner menu for only $18. We can't say enough about Dinner for Two. We are in the process of moving to Santa Fe and this is at the top of our list for places to eat.
