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 food was outstanding and the service was excellent. We would definitely include 315 on our dining list on any future visits to Santa Fe.

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.

Made reservations for family NYE dinner. Of course one could expect it to be crowded; however, the overall experience was a huge disappointment. Service was bad, fish was way over cooked, and they were out of certain menu items and liquor / wine.

While we have enjoyed 315 on a ‘regular’ night, sad to say this last experience was a complete waste of time and money. They were clearly not prepared for the number of reservations they had booked.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Santa Fe, but we were disappointed this visit. We went for New Years Eve and were seated in a room with a table for 8 and one for 5. Our waiter spent much more time with the other tables and we felt we were just an afterthought. Our cocktails came after our appetizers and our wine showed up in the middle of our main courses. The food was delicious as always, but overall it was not a great experience.

I have eaten here 3 times. Great ambiance with delicious French-inspired cuisine. Waiters could be a little more attentive, especially in an early dinner hour, in a restaurant that charges premium prices. The steak frites is especially fun with a smaller bar portion available off-holidays. Oysters were delicious! But only 3 medium sized scallops in entree seemed a little chintzy. Maybe in Paris....

We reserved a table on Dec 6th forChristmas night. We felt fortunate to get a reservation when otherwise the town was booked. When we arrived I was surprised to see so many unoccupied tables Now I know why: $65.00pp limited menu which was not advertised on their website nor where we booked (OpenTable) which emphasized a price from $31-$50. Service was good and the limited selection of wine-by-the-glass was average and overpriced. My Starter was foie gras was fine but typical. My entree (pork chops) was very good. My wife's salad was unremarkable by generous standards and her entree Lamb Stew fell short of a packaged meal from Trader Joe's..Dessert was carrot cake which was an abundance of dryness. It would all have been a good value at the advertised published price but when the check was delivered and payed we left feeling somehow financially malnourished.

We had an excellent Christmas dinner here. The scallop dish I had was outstanding, my wife had an excellent bronzino exceptionally well grilled, and my daughter had a perfectly cooked steak. Desserts were very good; the creme brulee was among the best we've had and the molten chocolate cake, good on its own, was accompanied by an otherworldly banana ice cream. We've dined here previously and also enjoyed it. Highly recommended.

My wife and I enjoyed an early evening Christmas dinner at 315. For a set menu price we had three courses including desert. There were a number of selection for each course that gave us plenty of options. Each course was plentiful and very tasty. I had mussels to start, the marinated pork chop as a main and carrot cake for desert. The pork chop was very moist with cavatelli as a perfect side. My wife had the champagne shrimp, baked hen and chocolate pots de Crème for desert. All were excellent. The service was superb.

This has become our “go to” restaurant because it is always reliable. We went Christmas Day for the special three course meal and it was outstanding. Many choices for each course. We often go to the bar for Happy Hour where oysters and wine are available for a reduced price. The staff is always friendly and welcoming.

We had a party of six and I always get concerned when I'm with a larger party, but where they placed us in the restaurant was perfect and we were seated promptly. The server was excellent, letting us catch up for a moment without pressuring us to order. The wine, a Beaujolais, was fabulous. The food was great and the service was efficient and not over-bearing. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and I got all the credit for booking the restaurant!

This is one of our favorite restaurants but this was NOT a good visit. We had terrible service. Our waiter seemed irritated about having to wait on us. We were not asked if we wanted to order drinks before dinner, questions about the menu were answered with obvious irritation, our water was never replenished, and we waited for literally hours between courses. The menu was limited due to the holiday, which would’ve been fine if the food was in any way acceptable. We paid $400 for dinner for four. The soup was good, but the other appetizers were lifeless. Two of us had the turkey, which arrived cold and was tasteless, with sides that were melded together in a mash of stuffing, green beans and sweet potatoes. Two of us had steak frites, neither of which were cooked to order appropriately—and one was sent back—and both arrived on cold plates with a mountain of cold fries. Desserts were equally disappointing, especially after waiting an hour! Molten cake should be served warm (!!) and the pumpkin mousse had no taste and seemed dry as if it had been left out too long. We asked for boxes to bring leftovers home to the dogs, but we received somebody else’s dinner! It was a nightmare and we were sorry to share the experience with our dear friends!

Though we were seated in the darkest, farthest corner in an isolated room like ugly, shameful cousins, the service was good and the food was delightful. We had fresh oysters and crab legs, ratatouille crepes, and duck two ways. We finished with pot de creme. All good.

My first dinner in Santa Fe was by recommendation of the Concierge at the La Fonda hotel.

The ambience was loud, but not so loud that it was hard to hear your friends at the table. My only issue was the bass on the stereo was rough on me, but good music overall.

The meal was carefully prepared and extremely enjoyable, although next time I’d specify for A little less salt. I had the Bronzino in lemon capers and butter sauce over green beans and fingerling potatoes. It was positively delicious!

I started with the light and yummy butternut squash soup with apple chutney and fully enjoyed the spectacular homemade ice cream in chocolate and coffee.

My friend had the NY Strip and some almond ice cream that I tried which was also fantastic.

Katie, our lovely server offered excellent, prompt and friendly service.

Highly recommend and will positively return!
