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.

Table was too small, lighting was too dark to see the menus. The venison scallopini was tough and inedible, the New York strip was tough and barely edible. Overall a very big disappointment do not recommend

The worst turkey dinner ever. Stuffing was glue-like. A large glob of poultry skin emerged from mostly small pieces of dark meat.

Pros:
Warm welcome, attentive service, attractive decor
Cons:
Featured wine, a Bordeaux blend, was absent on the nose, flat on the palate
First choice wine from list unavailable, suggested replacement was just OK.
Undercooked, overpriced, undersized fois gras
Bland country pâté
Oversized mussels in an odd choice of sauce, fried potato wedges piled on top of mussels instead of traditional french fries on the side.
Tiny scallops, hardly showing any color from searing (but in a tasty sauce)

We have been coming to Santa Fe for years, but this was our first experience at 315–and, we will be back. The food was extraordinary. We both had specials (pork chop and sea scallop entrees) that were unique and prepared perfectly. The wine list is extensive and has, as is usual for Santa Fe, some pricey choices, but also reasonable bottles from around the world. The service was efficient, knowledgeable, but never rushed. For fine Santa Fe dining, I thought 315 well valued.

My only complaint: we were seated adjacent to the kitchen entrance and had a bit more noise and bustle than I care for. The dining room is small and somewhat separated from a larger bar and seating space, thus offering two different “characters” of experience. The night was cold, but when we return in warmer times I think the attractive outdoor space may be a winning choice.

In short, ask for a table near the windows and enjoy a great meal.

Nice place to sit outside and enjoy a quiet meal. Indoor seating also appeared to have a nice ambiance. A little loud inside, so glad we chose outdoor seating. French red wine was delish and definitely recommend the quail and Mary French Fried Chicken.

It’s a fine restaurant, but for us old fogies it’s a bit loud. Service we had needed improvement - our waitperson didn’t seem to be very experienced in taking our orders. One of our party’s dinner went missing when the other 3 dinners came to the table. The steak frites were underdone and really nothing special, which for the price was disappointing.

Our experience eating outside just after sunset was delightful, especially once our waitress lighted the propane heater to ward off the evening chill. The food was excellent and the service outstanding. The price was high, but we celebrated our COVID booster shots, and it was worth every penny.

Mussels were cooked in a red sauce that was way too salty. I mean beyond being acceptable. Fries were something like thick quartered fried potatoes. Why change a fantastic classic dish that can’t really go wrong if you cook it right. No mayonaise in a French restaurant…?

This is now our favorite Santa Fe restaurant. The ambiance in the small rooms that make up this place is intimate and romantic. Service is friendly and efficient. Best of all the food that we've sampled on two recent visits has been outstanding - particularly the branzino and duck. We highly recommend it

This was our first visit to the 315 Restaurant & Wine Bar. It was excellent! We had a "high top" table in the bar, which was perfect. The ambiance was great, the food was excellent, and the service was super. We'll be back!

We've been enjoying Bistro 315 since moving to Santa Fe in 2004. It is at the top of our list! The chef continues offering his best culinary skills and insists on his staff being trained to European standards. We have never been disappointed and last night was outstanding with the wait staff attentive and our dishes served... outstandingly delicious!!! Melissa and Fred Brownell

We thought the foods were overpriced!! The cocktails were small for the price!
We sat at a high top in the bar and it was not very nice since the patio was too cold last night!
Dropping over $350 for dinner for 4 in a bar area is not that good of a value, and we ordered mostly appetizers.

Will not be coming back nor recommending it.

Lovely spot right close to the old town, but on a busy street. We chose to eat outside due to covid and appreciated the heaters and wind screens to help keep us warm. We each had soups, mine could have been warmer. I had delicious large mussels and my husband enjoyed the large generous portion of the fried chicken. Just asked our a server to wait a bit between courses , but food came out quickly unfortunately. Overall, highly recommend.

The Onion Soup was wonderful. It had a piquant quality but was robust.

The duck was cooked perfectly with some sweetness but not syrupy or over the top common to many other duck dishes. Polenta was light and crunchy and even the carrots were yummy and could stand alone.

The chanterrel mushroom angel hair pasta had a light creamy and buttery sauce. The pasta was cooked perfect fully and the mushrooms flavorful.

Wonderful service and ambiance. We will be back.

Service very poor. We ordered a salmon entree and said we were splitting it. They arrived with all the food on one plate and a small extra plate. Ridiculous for a fine restaurant to serve this way. Server was clueless.

Extensive liquor list with excellent but expensive too cru French, American, Spanish and Italian wines. The food was great we had pate de food and cesar salad with fried calamari. Then steak and frites like in France and we are French. I had venison medallions. Nice dessert an apple crumble. Price according to quality.
