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.

We really enjoyed a belated birthday celebration here. The service was attentive and accurate. The food was well prepared and delicious. All of our modifications to the menu items were done accurately and in a timely fashion. They joined in the birthday celebration with a nice momento for my wife. A good time was had by all!

315 is a French gourmet delight. Excellent wait service and evening specials. The chalkboard menus give it an extra sense of dining in Paris.

315 has the most 'French' feel of any restaurant in town. From the small but comfortable rooms inside to the wonderful patio outside, it would be at home in Paris. There is just enough foot traffic on the sidewalk going to and from the Plaza to provide interesting people watching but not enough to intrude.
As always, the food was superb. The misty point oysters were perfectly fresh and briny, the burrata and tomato with Basel pesto was rich but elegant and the fois gras was outstanding. Duck confit with proscuitto wrapped figs rounded out a very French bistro experience. And, of course, profiteroles for dessert!
This restaurant has the best wine list in Santa Fe and the owner/chef is a true expert. He is always available to give good advice.

Excellent experience at 315. We were there on a Tuesday which is 1/2 off bottles of wine night and they have an excellent wine list. It was also during their happy hour time so we indulged in a dozen oysters. I had the grilled Branzini which was absolutely delicious and my husband the steak frites - also excellent. Service was friendly, helpful and courteous. Will return next time we are in Santa Fe

We had a most enjoyable birthday dinner on the beautiful 315 patio the other night. Our waiter was outstanding with his informed suggestions on the menu and his great but unobtrusive attention to our table. The patio is lovely for summer evening dining but the lighting mounted in the low patio wall was too bright and glaring. It should be adjusted.
The food was wonderfully prepared and attractively presented. My halibut was cooked to delicious perfection as were the other entrees. Our only observation was that the scallion cakes on two of our dishes were a little on the bland side and lacked interest. Portions were generous.
The wine list was impressive and our selections served at the perfect temperature.
The complimentary birthday dessert of flourless chocolate cake was scrumptious dark chocolate perfection and much appreciated.
As locals we often overlook some of our most outstanding restaurant gems but 315 is definitely back on our "A" list!

We love 315, the staff, the food, the wine, the location. Our favorite is the squash blossom appetizer. The duck confit special was too salty the night we went or we would have given 315 a straight 5 star rating.

We always love the squash blossoms this time of year and my friends thought the halibut was cooked to perfection. Our waiter dealt very diplomatically with a difficult tablemate in choosing a wine. Sometimes an "expert" makes a fun decision into a chore. Once we got past the wine drama we had a lovely evening.

We had a great evening at 315 Restaurant. The raw oysters that were on special were fresh and not fishy at all. The wine selection was excellent with many French wines to choose from at reasonable prices. My wife's grilled branzino was excellent and the deserts were super. Our waitress was superb!!

Second Time's a Charm......after having a bad experience not getting service last month, a group of us gave 315 a try this month and we're glad we did. The food was outstanding (halibut, mussels, squash blossoms, and burrata) and the service was very attentive. The wine recommendation from our server was spot on and reasonable (from a pretty extensive wine list). The restaurant come highly recommended from a friend and it did not disappoint. I guess everyone can have an off-night (referring to last month's visit). We will return.

We hadn’t been to this restaurant for many years and it has been remodeled and has much more space, inside and out. We enjoyed the food very much. It was one of those situations where making a decision what to order was difficult. However, the service was unacceptable. It took more than average time for every stage, and our waiter seemed to disappear and did not check back. The worst part was at the end of the meal, we ordered a dessert. It never came, nor could we find anyone to ask where it was. Finally, after accosting several different people, we at least got a check (excluding the dessert which we never received). Even though we thoroughly enjoyed the food, it will be a long time before we try this restaurant again.

The restaurant's food was the best tasting; the result of a chief's love in his cooking. The cocktail was also superb. The seasonal squash blossom stuffed with goat cheese shows the chief's enthusiasm for a cutting edge type of menu.

Love the seasonal fare - both on the printed menu and on the specials board. Love the option of having half-priced oysters during happy hour. We started an evening on the patio with a few happy hour oysters and a glass of wine while we relaxed with the menu. Pleasant, not too loud accordian music, and a bit of friendly conversation with nearby tables. Cucumber and grape gazpacho surprised and refreshed on a warm evening. Fresh housemade pasta was delicious. Very good wine recommendations. Impeccable service from the first water pour to bagging the unfinished bottle of wine. Highly recommend.

Since it was my birthday, we were treated to fabulous flourless chocolate cake, yum! As a birthday gift I was given two 315 plastic wine glasses. All in all a perfect evening!

The restaurant itself seems a little stuffy and was not quite what I expected. Was sort of dark inside. We had a very good waiter and the food was very good. Hd the duck two ways and found that there was enough duck to make it a duck dish. The portion was typical French, which one would expect from a French restaurant. Overall we were happy with the meal and the service.

I’ve been coming here for years and I have never been disappointed with any aspect of my experience. Excellent wine selection and great food at a reasonable price. The staff are always friendly which as a longtime local I can attest to the fact that through the years has become rare overall in Santa Fe.

Louis serves up great food, particularly the appetizers and wines. And the food this time was mostly up to the usual high standards. But the 4-ounce filet mignon served with the "Surf and Turf" entree this time was awful: tough and gristly almost to the point in inedibility. It was so bad as to be memorable. (The fresh lobster tail was by contrast terrific.) I may try the restaurant again because of my prior experiences, but whoever selects the beef to be served to guests needs to know how much ingredient quality matters. I am happy to emphasize that ingredients are generally up to high standards, and the experience is almost always outstanding.

We went Saturday night and waited at our table for approximately 30 minutes and were not even acknowledged once by the wait staff despite 4 or 5 servers walking past the table. It took over 20 minutes before a busboy provided water and utensils! We left at the 30 minute mark and remarked to the Hostess that we were leaving and the reason and she could't have cared less - told us "thanks for coming, have a nice evening!" We've live in Santa Fe part-time for 15+ years and never had such an experience - the restaurant wasn't even full. Will never go back.
