We enjoyed Christmas eve at Martin, the butternut squash soup and the venison were perfect. The staff was very accomodating with the 3 children in our group, and the service was efficient and friendly. Will definitely go back on another trip to Santa Fe! We even bought the cookbook!

Visiting Santa Fe for Christmas, we decided to try Restaurant Martin for our Christmas dinner. They were offering a 3 course prix fixe dinner and it turned out to be a good choice. Although overall I would not call it outstanding, there were some outstanding moments. The butternut squash soup was wonderful as were the salads. The presentation of all... More

We had a wonderful family Christmas Eve dinner at Martin, the staff was very attentive and accommodating with the children. We enjoyed a very tasty butternut squash bisque and delicious venison. Good wine list, delicious food, friendly atmosphere, perfect evening. Gracias Martin! Thank you for signing your cookbook!

We live in Santa Fe and needed a last-minute place to have Christmas dinner due to a travel cancellation. The fact that Restaurant Martin was about the only place with a lot of availability two days before Christmas should have been a clue (all of the better restaurants were already fully booked.) It was a little off-putting to receive a... More

The service tonight was sub par. We waited 10 min before server took our order and she left our table before completing the task. She seemed very scattered and stretched thin. We waited another 5 min until she came back. The food was not steller, especially the vegetable entree; bland and each offering was prepared badly.

What an outstanding restaurant. Went there twice in our four-day stay and had a wonderful time. Very inventive and quality driven menu with a wonderful staff. One of the best restaurants I've been to in quite a long time. Will not disappoint.

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
