Diner Reviews
  • "This place is a steakhouse. I was very good and I would eat there again. I liked it more than my wife did, but neither one of us thought is was memorable, just good solid steaks--way better than what we do at home. We did enjoy the atmosphere-very nice patio dining. Some traffic noise, but Taos is a quiet town as a rule so it was not a problem."

  • "Anthony our waiter was friendly and personable. We had a reservation and were seated in the bar, not why I make a reservation but Anthony made it worth it. Food hot and spaced perfectly. Visually pleasing and large portions."

  • "We arrived five minutes early for a 7:45 pm reservation for two people. After ten minutes we were told that we couldn't be seated yet because there were no menus. Finally we asked to be seated with the wine menu, and we choose two glasses of wine. It took 20 minutes for the wine to arrive. The waiter asked if we had decided on our meal and we informed him that we had still not received menus. This was the pattern all night. We were seated fifty minutes before any food was delivered, at which point the waiter wanted to bring the appetizer and salads at the same time. The mushroom appetizer was delicious, and the salads were very nice. The salmon was dry & overcooked, soft shell crab was good; the ribeye cooked to order but tough."

  • "We had a lovely table, however, the food (boar) was served cold... and when returned for a second time still cold. Made great leftover but not why we had visited Martyr's"

  • "We were looking for a place for a nice dinner after a number of outdoor activities. This was a great place. Great food and service. We asked for a New Mexico wine and they pulled the last bottle out of the cellar that proved to be a very nice choice."

  • "We were nicely greeted on our lunch visit. We ordered mohitos which were made without mottling the mint. After a long wait we ordered omletes. Then, we waited over an hour for them to arrive. The omletes were good, not great. The potatoes served with them were tasteless and unappealing. We will not be going back there."

  • "It was very warm that night (6/4) and the a/c should've been better. We each had salads and appetizers -avocado stuffed with crab and shrimp cocktail. Everything was good. Others' portions looked huge. We'd been tbere before, in the fall, and enjoyed it then, also."

  • "Even though it was Mother's Day, the service was very good. The server was very attentive. Although there was a small problem with our order, they took care of it immediately and took the item off the bill."

  • "We were visiting in Taos, and at the last moment we decided to go out to dinner... On Mother's Day... I made a reservation... and we were going to be on the patio but the temperature dropped into the low 50's They were great... and we ended up at a high top in the beautiful bar.. fabulous food and service and we would probably ask for the bar area again... Wonderful remodeled Historic house.. Best service we have had in long time.. we will go back! "

  • "Have eaten here before and everything was perfect. The poor staff was overwhelmed, therefore the service was poor but polite. There was only one bartender who could hardly keep up with the bar orders or the orders from the dining room. The halibut was average and not very warm. The rice was dry and cold. My husband's meal was similar."

  • "Had a Splurge Taos coupon to use. We'd eaten at Martyr's a few times before, but this was the best meal we've had there. Fish special was delicious, and according to my husband, was cooked perfectly. Lamb chops were also done perfectly. Our wonderful server told us they got the lamb from a local farm just up the road. We asked Elisha, our server, for a wine suggestion since we were having meat and fish. She was very helpful and took great care of us throughout the meal. We also shared a decadent chocolate dessert! We'll definitely return to Martyr's. "

  • "This place is a gem! The steaks were amazing and the staff was top-notch. They don't normally do it, but when they told me they were known for their creme brulee', I asked about flaming it tableside. The executive chef came out and flamed all three tableside. Again, not normally done, but this staff is just that accommodating. I wholeheartedly recommend this place, you won't be disappointed!"

  • "Having been to Martyr's on many occasions, I find that the wine and drink list is excellent, the ambiance inside and outdoors elegant, and the food for lunch very good. I have, however, found the dinner entrees have left me flat more than a couple of times. When I spend over $100 for dinner for two, I expect better flavor from the entrees. The sides are always excellent, the desserts are terrific, and the presentation and service is great. The food is good, not exceptional. That said, we always find going to Martyr's an experience to dress up for, and always look forward to treating ourselves to a night out at the restaurant."

  • "It was a rather pricey surprise. Especially when the prices on the actual menus are higher than the prices featured online. They need to correct this misleading discrepancy."

  • "It was our first meal at Martyrs, and it was lovely. The specialty drinks are creative and delicious. The four of us got different meals and they were all cooked perfectly and tasty. Desserts were great, too. We determined we would make Martyrs a regular, since we are local."

  • "We were in town for our anniversary and wanted to have a nice, upscale dinner at a steakhouse. We made our reservations (with the request for a nice table if possible for the anniversary) and when we arrived at the restaurant, we waited for about 10 minutes for our table (which was a high-top table in the bar RIGHT next to another table with a family of 3). Our drink order was taken (upon which we also asked for water & our candle to at least be lit on our table). After about 10 minutes, we finally received our tap water...no ice...but still no drinks (which was just wine & a gin/tonic). Still no candle lit either. After 25 minutes with still no drinks, we decided to walk out of the restaurant. Definitely do NOT recommend Martyrs!"

  • "Had a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner at Martyrs with my wife. We have eaten here many times for both lunch and dinner since it opened, but this three-course special dinner, paired with wines, was the best meal we have had there. A surf and turf entree, with huge grilled shrimp, a grilled lobster tail and strip steak (perfectly done, Pittsburgh rare) was outstanding. Butternut squash and green chili soup was a spicy starter. The two deserts we shared (Jack Daniels-drenched bread pudding and chocolate-raspberry mousse) were the perfect ending to the meal. Martyrs has evolved upward since the current chef, Gabriel Farkash, took over the kitchen. Bravo! Definitely a place to go when you are in or near Taos."

  • "This restaurant was a very pleasant surprise and exceeded my expectations. It was a great dining experience, big drinks, very good service and a menu with food a person can recognize. Excellent choice for people like me that enjoy meat. I don't know about the rest of the menu but if it is as enjoyable as the red meat selections should be OK for all. Seems like you could take anyone there, business or social. A really nice addition to Taos dining options, really nice."

  • "Martyrs Steakhouse (named for the adjacent street, not a sacrifice) is an amazing neighborhood restaurant. The place is small so you should definitely reserve a table, do not expect to walk in and get seated. The food, ambience, service, and overall experience is top-notch. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Impeccable!!"

  • "Martyrs is a new place that has already changed chefs several times. We had good appetizers--Lobster Mac&Cheese is an exciting new (and expensive) comfort food idea, and the crab/avocado one was good as well. Of the steaks, the Tournedos was excellent, the Porterhouse a bit tough. The waiter was a bit rusty and forgot to bring my posole (I forgot to check if he charged me for it!) We had an excellent (if expensive) Amarone wine. Bill for 6 (excl. wine, tip, and tax) was about $280. Atmosphere was good with three choices of setting (tables--a bit exposed to the cold outside), the high-chair tables inside room, and at the bar."

  • "Waited over an hour for our table which we had a reservation for-first we waited at the front and then hostess took us to the bar. My husband and I ordered drinks and the wait began. We waited over an hour-it was Christmas and I understand people want to be with their family. But don't take so many reservations!!! For a 6:45 reservation we were seated at 7:50 and it took the server another 10 minutes to acknowledge us. They were out of bread, meat was overcooked, regular bread showed up at the end of our meal. Food average at best. Server didn't seem to notice or care about our frustration. This turned into a three hour frustrating experience. All in all a very average meal for over $300 for four people. Not impressed."

  • "A great evening those these are not prime steaks by any means. In fact the menu doesn't say what USDA stamp is on the steaks."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "Our family group found the steaks and salmon from Martyr's kitchen tasty, as were the sauces for steaks. The crab/avocado and steak tartar appetizers were wonderful. On the other hand, none of the food was inventive and my medium rare steak was overcooked. The baked potatoes were undercooked and the mashed potatoes not only tasteless, but obviously placed on the plate and kept in a warmer for a LONG time. But by far the most frustrating part of our evening was the poor wait service. Our waiter seemed totally untrained to the point that my generally laid-back husband was furious. Although some elements of our meal were excellent, the poor service and general lack of creativity in a relatively expensive restaurant is a no-go for me."

  • "This place is situated in the heard of old Taos and is pleasantly located in a nicely restored old residence. The food and ambiance are OK, but highly over priced and badly in need of a serious reality check."

  • "I always like to try the higher end restaurants in Taos and this was a very good choice. It was my first visit to Martyrs and will not be my last. The food was excellent and very nicely presented. The service was exceptional. We were never ignored or overly attended to. The restoration of the physical restaurant was very nicely done."

  • "Seems they've got all their kinks worked out. Food was fantastic, service good. Drinks were nicely done- their custom version of drinks are fun. Much as Steakout closing was a bummer having Martyrs walking distance from the house is a treat. Becoming a spot for regulars. Staff clearly knew people coming in. Menu diverse enough for everyone."
