French
Chef-owned and operated for more than two decades, 315 is dedicated to serving both modern and contemporary French cuisine inspired by seasonal local ingredients. With a grassroots initiative, almost every dish is prepared from scratch using exceptional care in the procurement of every ingredient. In this way, we pay respect to the community by finding new ways to support Santa Fe’s unique culture of food and art.

French food is much more than the classic dishes we all have learned to know and love. It is a philosophy within its composition and a discipline in its technique. Using carefully selected ingredients, we look for ways to enhance a dish rather than overwhelm it. This is where the dance begins between the food and the wine.

The Branzino was delicious. Perfectly prepared. How nice to find it is on the menu and not a special. The atmosphere was warm and cozy. Look forward to going back. Next time, we'll get there earlier so my husband can have the oysters which are served during happy hour - until 7:00.

We hadn’t been there for about 12 years. Very nice, great food with a French flair. The dining rooms were alittle too dark, but nothing that my phone light couldn’t Handel. Very nice evening— We will be back!

315 Bistro is Iconic. What’s not to love about a bistro kitchen that can extend the NM Restaurant week menu, as well as it’s regular menu and a fabulous 3 course Oyster Dinner all while their kitchen is under extreme renovation. I really enjoyed the Oyster Dinner and the wines Chef Louis picked to compliment them were perfect. A long time favorite.

DISSATISFIED: We have been to 315 many times. It has always been spectacular, until Sunday night...My friend and I each ordered different foods from the Restaurant Week menu which looked like a good value. However we each had terrible food and mediocre service for the first time ever at 315. Go for the seafood and bar menu on Restaurant week. Not the pre-fix meals. I had the bouillabaisse, she had the steak, the meals were not good at all, the only thing we finished was dessert, so the food nor the experience, was in any way the value that it appeared to be when we went in! We will never go back on Restaurant Week. Disappointing when it should have been so easy for them to keep their usual high standards of excellence where food is concerned and service is concerned!

This evening was unfortunately our most disappointing experience at 315 in many, many years. Two main courses were so poor they had to be sent back, and the other two were passable but totally unremarkable. To top it off, service was abysmal. I’ve been a long time fan of this restaurant, and I prevailed upon our group to dine at 315 despite warnings that we were likely to be disappointed. Unfortunately my confidence yield to do apologies. I truly hope that this local institution is not falling from grace.

The food, service,and service were outstanding.

What wasn’t great was caused by your system, Open Table. You confirmed my reservation online,but never put it through to the restaurant. There were three reservations ahead of me who arrived and had the same experience. What’S up with your company? Talking with other friends traveling to Santa Fe I learned the same thing is happening with your system at other restaurants here. You can’t blame this aggravation,confusion, and disgruntlement among patrons on the restaurants. Shame on you and your company for this unseemly behavior . I can’t trust using OpenTable any more and will spread my discovery and experience to everyone I can.

Very rude server. She was snippy. Wouldn’t divide our check. Said their system was from the 80’s. We each had 1 drink so it wasn’t hard to divide. Sent the food back. It was awful. Like frozen store bought food. Talked to some locals later who all said the place has gone down hill. Seemed to be the topic from the locals. They all agreed the servers are the worst and evidentially the owner doesn’t do anything about the bad service. Too bad for us tourists. Really wanted to like the place. We all love good wine. Won’t go back. Went to Geronimo’s which is always good.

The last time we were here a few years ago I thought the food just okay and my recent visit was the same. We went for Restaurant Week. My salad had scant dressing, my bouillabaisse was tepid, my husband's steak overdone and cool. The meal took over two hours for just three courses, the first 30 minutes spent waiting for a bottle of wine.

It was restaurant week when those participating receive a choice of prix fixe or regular menu.
It’s hectic and busy but the wait staff and team at 315 were in it! Excellent meal, stellar service. The best!

One of the last bastions of old-school formal dining left in New Mexico. The food is delicious and the service is absolutely spot on. If you're saddened by how informal and casual fine dining has become 315 will be a wonderful breath of fresh air for you. I love when things are spot on and top to bottom 315 pays attention to the little details that matter so much.

This is our third or fourth time at 3:15 recently and each time has been consistently very good in terms of food.Last night was particularly lovely because the restaurant was a bit less crowded and so the noise level was quite comfortable. When the restaurant is really packed it’s a bit noisy but even then it’s still very good.

Attentive but not hovering service. Questions about the menu, wine, and cocktails answered clearly. Special salad was excellent. The three wild shrimp were large, fresh and sweet - not always the case in our inland city at even good restaurants. Main dish was branzino - a fish that sometimes can be prepared to be a bit bland. 315's presentation added just the right amount of flavors without covering the subtle flavor of the fish.
Highly recommended.

The food is usually good at this restaurant, but this time I ordered the Winter Vegetable Pot. It was bland and overwhelmingly uninteresting, especially for $24. Some stupid little carrots and mostly potatoes in a salty brine. The serving size was quite small. Fortunately, my husband shared his dinner with me.
