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.

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!

Tienen un menú con variedad. Los ingredientes son de excelente calidad y la comida estaba deliciosamente preparada, en su punto y con porciones de excelente tamaño. No hay menú para niños, pero hay bocados que son perfectos para acomodar una comida para un niño. Tienen un ambiente tranquilo donde es posible una buena conversación porque no es ruidoso.
Tuvimos un mesero que tenía toda la buena voluntad de dar un buen servicio, pero no la habilidad ni la experiencia. Tomó nuestro pedido y al poco regresó porque tomó nota y luego no sabía qué habíamos ordenado. Al traer las bebidas, una no llegó a la mesa y cada vez que venía cerca a nuestra mesa decía que ya la iba a traer y luego la olvidaba y esto sucedió unas 3 veces. Trajo la comida que estaba deliciosa y al final pedimos postre y al poco tiempo vino alguien para decir que ese postre no lo tenían, que si queríamos ordenar otra cosa, pedimos otro de los postres y luego regresó otro mesero a decir que tampoco había ese postre. Pedimos al fin un musse de chocolate y una torta de chocolate y banano que estaban deliciosas!
Recomendada la comida y entendemos que el mesero que nos atendió no estaba teniendo un buen día. Esperamos regresar pronto!

Had not been to 315 in a couple of years but so glad I went this week. We had great service and excellent food. Seasonal special was squash blossoms in tempura with a goat cheese sauce - wonderfully delicate dish. Onion soup, duck confit were excellent along with halibut. Very friendly attentive service. Will be back soon.

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 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.
