This is one of those upscale restaurants where the chef has a cookbook showcasing his creativity, decor is modern/hip and prices are high. Flavor combos are interesting: coffee roasted beets with chèvre beignets and Linzer crisps ... you get the idea. Plates are artistically composed. But the beets were overwhelming salty, the steak tasty but requiring aerobic exercise to slice... More

Restaurant Martin performed a hat trick when we visited - outstanding food, service (thank you Bethany - I told you I would mention you by name), and ambience. The restaurant was just a block from the time share condo we were renting. Being able to walk to it was nice but it does have ample parking - a prized commodity... More

We ordered tuna tartare that was lovely and an amazing, flavorful, creatively displayed butternut squash bisque. We enjoyed the chefs special seafood and the striploin. The dessert was particularly noteworthy. There were 7 or 8 complimentary flavor and it too, was presented beautifully. The service was fantastic.

A friend and I ate dinner here one evening. It was our first visit. The restaurant is located in a converted Santa Fe home. It has a cozy and unpretentious ambience. The noise level is low so that conversation is easy. Our server was pleasant and fairly attentive, but was not as fully conversant with the menu items as one... More

Went on suggestion of friend who lives in Santa Fe. Was a little leery walking there as seemed to be in odd location. We were more than pleased with the recommendation. The service was excellent, the food was outstanding and the atmosphere was lively. Only wish they had a full bar as was looking forward to a martini 😢.

The first time I ate at this restaurant, it was for lunch in August. I got a memorable Waldorf salad with grilled chicken. It was GREAT! Te bread was fresh, the service was excellent. I returned earlier this month, Oct, for dinner. I was not impressed. The wine selection was ok for dinner, the food was minimal for the price... More

Restaurant Martin never fails to please. The food is beautifully presented, interesting and, most important, delicious. The wait staff is professional and efficient. If you are looking for something different which still captures the flavors of Santa Fe, this is the place to go. This is a perfect restaurant for a special occasion, and you always leave knowing you will... More

A bit pricey, but the service and food were both excellent. Our waiter was very knowledgable about all of the ingredients and how the food was prepared. Good place to take someone you want to impress.
