Diner Reviews
  • "The food was outstanding as always. The outside patio is a great addition and very pleasant."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "This is truly one of Santa Fe's best. The menu is diverse and extremely creative. The wine list is second to none. From the moment you walk in to when you leave you experience and seasoned Maitre D' and waitstaff all of whom are extremely knowledgeable, friendly but not overwhelming. Absolutely everything on the menu is a culinary experience not to miss. The young chef is an all star and should be lauded for his abilities."

  • "Service was horrible. Clearly there was someone at another table considered highly important while we were invisible. It was almost comical other than it certainly left a bad taste in our mouths. The restaurant wasn't that busy and there was no apparent reason why our food was so late in coming, cold and the waiter clearly indifferent at best. I was so looking forward to trying the restaurant and now will not be back."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "The wait staff are knowledgeable, professional and always add to the enjoyment of Mark's amazing food. We love that the menu changes all the time. The best restaurant in Santa Fe!"

  • "We are so fortunate to have Arroyo Vino right in our neighborhood. We had a long, hard Friday, and dinner at Arroyo Vino set everything to rights. Great food, lovely and relaxed dining out on the patio. If you're downtown, it's well worth the short drive out Camino La Tierra, and you can't beat the views."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Every bite to savor! Maybe the best chef in New Mexico. High desert evening, so relaxing on patio with view of chamisa and pinon pines, like being in your own backyard. Casual, minimalist setting encouraged our focus on each perfect bite. Mark is a genius with flavor."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Wonderful atmosphere and super wine selection. Food is esoteric service is slow but knowledgeable and attentive."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "This is our favorite restaurant in Santa Fe. Creative food preparations and presentations. Portions and "Bites" are perfectly sized. Glad to see the Asparagus Fries back and the peas and spring rolls are always a hit. LOVED the mushroom risotto."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Menu changes frequently, and there are always a variety of tempting choices. The service tends to be a bit "hooty" but aside from the chips on their shoulders, they are competent. The kitchen is definitely above average."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Every meal we have here just keeps getting better...I think it is one of the 3 best in Santa Fe. I love everything we have here...just wish I could try all on the menu...so innovative and wonderful fresh ingredients and very seasonal...great that the menu changes so frequently. If you come to Santa Fe, be sure and try this...it is worth the drive!"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "My husband and I make it a point to dine at Arroyo Vino whenever we are in Santa Fe. The dishes are always creative, beautifully presented and have amazing flavor. Everything is made "from scratch" using local seasonal ingredients when available; with some from their own vegetable and herb garden. The servers are knowledgable and helpful and all the staff very friendly. We dined out on their new patio and found it to be quite lovely and relaxing."

  • "This treasure is one Santa Fe's best kept secrets. Food is superb and the service outstanding. Ben and Rom ALWAYS go above and beyond."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Probably will be a great neighborhood spot, we drove out from Santa Fe, and it was difficult to find, GPS is incorrect for some reason. Good concept, because of the wine store, but I believe they still have a ways to go, great location, but uneven service, great outdoor patio, it was a relief from the noise of downtown."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Excellent food & service with a fantastic selection of wines"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Wonderful food! The best melding of flavors I have ever experienced. This chef knows his business. Nothing was overpowering. The flavors were subtle and worked so well together. The service was tremendous, and the wine list is outstanding."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Love this wonderful little restaurant and wine bar in our neighborhood. The food is always wonderful...with plates for sharing...and the menu changes daily which I really like. I get so tired of places that never change and since we eat out 5 nights a week it can really get boring. With the wine shop attached you can always find a wine that compliments your dinner. This place offers up some of the best food in Santa Fe."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Arroyo vino is attached to the wine store, so they offer the option of bringing in any bottle from the wine store, with a very reasonable charge. The food was enjoyable, with a selection of interesting small plates (not spanish style) and entrees. The dishes had interesting combinations of ingredients and were well prepared. The scallops and the seamless ravioli (think gnocchi) were both delightful, as were the desserts. The menu is not always descriptive, but ask the waiter for more details if you are not an adventerous diner. The location is inconvenient, but worth the drive. "

  • "We live just up the road, and finally "found" Arroyo Vino the other night. Loved the tapas, enjoyed sharing the small plates, and of course the wine was stellar. Asparagus fries were especially intriguing, but overall the menu was experimental and delicious. Very pleased we have this little gem right in the 'hood!"
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "The chef here is simply magic, and the wines selected from the adjoining wine store are offered at extremely reasonable prices. Our favorite place in Santa Fe."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "This restaurant, adjacent to a wine shop, has an ever-changing menu of seasonal ingredients, exquisitely prepared and served mainly as small plates suitable for sharing. Get the seamless ravioli if they are on the menu but, really, everything is great. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "There are people who want to cook good food, and try to cook good food, who write menus with artful ingredients. Then there are honest-to-god "food smiths" if you will, people who understand how to extract the essence from ingredients and serve you something worth all the foodie rapture. Kudos also to this most excellent restaurant, easily the best in Santa Fe (and wider circles) which is known for its wine list and huge on-site wine store, for treating diners who come for the food alone as well as any $250 a bottle wine drinking diner. The sunset could not have been improved upon, either. Our second visit, this is on our must-dine list any time we're in Santa Fe."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "The menu changes daily. The food is always interesting but simple and delicious. It is not fussy at all. Fresh crayfish was served simply with a delicious broth and great frites. You had to eat it with your fingers, so the restaurant is all about the food and not attitude. Lamb belly was new to us and also delicious."
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "This is a neighborhood spot for those in Las Campanas and La Tierra, so it's an older crowd and pretty quiet. The food was pretty good for me, but my fellow diner had the duck confit special and proclaimed it the worst duck she's ever had. Great wine list and our server was excellent. "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "The service was extremely stellar (and I am picky). The food was a gustatory delight. The atmosphere was beautiful without being intimidating. And I loved being able to pick out a wine from the attached wine shop. It was a Wine Spectator 93 pointer, and it was still less expensive than their wine list's least expensive bottle. Very fun."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Briefly, we were disappointed and the first clue was that there were few diners for a sat. Night in Santa Fe. It used to be quite good we understand, but the chef has changed or something. The "fabled" pork dish was dry and almost inedible and my dish with confit and foie gras was tasteless. If there was any foie gras I surely didn't taste it. The salad had a very sharp and strong vinegar in the dressing that over-powered everything else. The service was very good, ambience was nice; but without the food, we'll never go back. We live in Santa Fe and this was our first and last time? Santa Fe Rupperts"

  • "Great food and wine with adjoining wine store ! Pricey , big good portions . Very innovative combinations of ingredients ,"
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "A real step up. Inventive food, beautifully presented."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Arroyo Vino has a menu that is constantly evolving. It is housed in a wine shop, so you can partake of their suggested wines or venture into the store where you can make your own selection. The chef is very creative and the menu is rather varied. There are numerous small plates as well as larger portions for sharing. Save room for dessert! The service has always been professional, and the servers are quite knowledgeable about wine. The noise level and the chairs are the only drawbacks."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Love Arroyo Vino. Food is excellent and the setting is spare but warm. I will return often. Great wines too at reasonable mark-up. Service could be just a bit better. Takes quite a while between courses."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Everything was outstanding. Worth the money. Very reasonable."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "We live in Santa Fe so frequent the many restaurants in town but Arroyo Vino was well worth the trip. We will be back and will probably come home with more wine from the affordable wine selection (again)."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed the food and wine. It was our anniversary and so we asked for a corner table. The host/hostess got us a corner table and made sure that no one else was seated next to us throughout our dinner. The food was delicious; the portions, although small, were the perfect size - i.e. no wastage - and we were sated. The wines are top rated and barely priced over retail price - not the 2x to 3x that typical restaurants charge. Worth going back - and we will!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Delicious, often- changing menu, huge wine selection (off the menu or from the adjacent wine store it's basically just a 20% corkage fee), friendly staff, jolly."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "The food at Arroyo Vino is some of the best in town, but the atmosphere and service isn't quite up to that level. Not really bad at all, but the restaurant would benefit from a cozier atmosphere, some noise dampeners on the floor or walls and a little more attentive service from the wait staff. Because of the casual nature of the dining area, it is also a little loud and hard to hear others in your party. All in all, a wonderful experience that I will look forward to repeating."

  • "This is a restaurant that seems to know "what it wants to be" and accomplishes that with wonderful food, service and ambiance -- very "today"; intimate; great wine selections. Presentation of food outstanding. Among the five in our group, we ordered a wide variety of appetizers, entrees and desserts -- everyone was extremely pleased. Our only compliant was that the chairs were not comfortable and we were told by management that those are being replaced. We live in the neighborhood and we will be going back frequently."

  • "I went with friends and found the small plates perfect for sharing - although I wanted to keep a few just for myself. The food was fantastic and I was glad to see Chef Mark Connell back in the kitchen. I have always been a big fan of his cooking. Highly recommend this place!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Great concept with the small and medium plates. The food was wonderful, every dish showed the chef's care. The wine selections from the attached shop were some of the best in Santa Fe. One of the best dining experiences in Santa Fe."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "We were seated late by 45 mins, with little apology or explanation. The menu choices were excellent; plenty for meat, fowl, fish and veggie lovers. The wine selection was incredible and fairly priced; given the long delay we had plenty of time to choose. All items on the menu were expensive. Even bread with olive oil cost $5! Our service was extremely slow but when the food did come it was exquisite and artistically presented. The portions were tiny; a "plate" came with approximately 1 cup of food including vegetables, starch and protein. After three courses comprising bread, salad, entree and dessert we were left hungry - rare for us. Summary: 3 hours; $200 for two, including wine; hungry; frustrated. We ate when we got home!"

  • "Fun neighborhood restaurant. Tables close together but we felt we could have a private conversation. Always good choices of small servings. Something new each time I go. Excellent wine menu."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "This restaurant is worth the short drive from Santa Fe to Las Campanas, about 6 miles. The restaurant itself is attached to a very well stocked winestore, so naturally, the wine list is special. Even better, you can pick any wine and have it with dinner for a markup of $20. The wine prices are reasonable, so that's a great deal. Originally, Arroyo Vino served only "bites," giving it the feel of a tapas restaurant. Now they've added full plates. On our visit, we had an exceptional green lentil soup, a very savory fish dish, and a delicious housemade pappardella with lamb Bolognese sauce. Everything was exceptional, packed with flavor but clean and healthy. We're lucky enough to live nearby, and I am certain we'll be visiting again soon."
