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.

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!

We had a fabulous dinner and service a few weeks ago at 315, and I gave a fabulous rating on everything. This time, all was just OK. Service not great! Fish was floating in butter. We won't be back for awhile. It seemed inconsistent.

Have been to 315 several times (we live in Santa Fe). This time we took some guests from out of town. We all loved our food and the service is excellent. Great parking across the street (always an issue in Santa Fe). They have a very fun bar menu. One of the items is a small plate with two slices of steak, a small green salad, and string french fries on it. I had a bowl of delicious squash soup first and then had this small plate for my entree. It was perfect. My husband loves their steak with pepper sauce. Very French, very delicious.

This was by far the best restaurant we ate at during our 5 day stay in Santa Monica. I had the Grilled Brazino with Lemon & Thyme Butter - it was so delicious! The fish was tender and flavorful, the thyme and lemon butter tied everything together. Thank you!!

We had an excellent meal for my husband's birthday at 315, with outstanding service and congeniality from Jean Paul. Our dining group of four of are long-time friends and locals and have seen this restaurant improve over the years. We requested a certain quiet table so we could catch up with each other and we were graciously accommodated. We live in Las Campanas and it was worth the Uber ride to go in and out of Santa Fe. We had a great time, and we closed the place down!

I think we overdid it a bit, but we created our own 6 course dinner out of the menu and specials. We started with chilled seafood and champagne and then moved on to pate, pasta with shaved truffles, gnocchi, duck two ways, the salmon special and a couple of desserts for good measure. The server was fantastic, always there when we needed something but never intrusive. The owner Louis came by and checked on us several times and helped us with wine selections.
It was a perfect dinner!

My husband and I enjoyed our meal here. The rooms are kind of cozy and the service was attentive without any "attitude". We had the chess appetizer plate (excellent quality cheeses) and the foil gras (nicely done). Our main courses were the delicious pork t-bone special and the steak frites. Very good meal, we will be back.

315 is one of our favorite restaurants in Santa Fe, and has been for years. The night we were there, a Saturday, it was packed and rather noisy, but the food was excellent, and the service was outstanding. The bartender knows what a Gibson is - surprisingly rare these days. The Veal Blanquette needed more veal and fewer dumplings, especially considering the price, but it was very tasty, and everything else was superb. We didn't feel rushed or ignored, even though there were several large parties that night.
Still a great place.

outstanding selection of wonderful dishes, the wine list is excellent and the waiter recommendation of matching wine with dinner was spot on. the entire staff was friendly and professional.
my wife had the brazino and the vegetables and fish were a perfect match. I had the monk fish with slow roasted tomatoes which was one of the specials. the flavor was wonderful.
two fish dishes with completely different flavors, but both excellent.

The food was just okay, but it seemed like it was trying too hard to be something it wasn’t. Basic things like bread for table could be improved (tasted like cardboard). Wine list was very nice. Appetizer was deep fried with thick creamy sauce that was just so-so but felt over the top. Fish for main was very fresh. Service was so so. Waiter was nice and tried hard but lacked some sophistication.

French in Santa Fe?? Who would have thought it would be so good! The menu was varied and the wine list was complete! Our waiter did a fabulous job. We wanted profiarolls but they were out of vanilla ice cream. He got the chef to make them with chocolate. Unusual, but tasty! I would recommend this restaurant highly!
