Arroyo Vino serves a seasonal menu of progressive American fare inspired by our on premise garden and local purveyors. The wine program consists of several great by-the-glass options, a well curated list and well over 800 bottles in the adjoining wine shop. Bottles from the shop are available for just $30 over the retail price, making for an incredible opportunity to enjoy some great wines at reasonable prices versus the typical 3 times mark-up at most restaurants.

Fantastic meal! Crab Louie special featuring fried green tomatoes and lump crab was fantastic. Never disappointed in the food. Service was efficient and extremely friendly.

Excellent food in a friendly atmosphere. Rather dressy for Santa Fe - the only time I ever saw someone in a tie in a Santa Fe restaurant!

This place hit the ball out of the park. Great food (love that some comes from their garden), favors and presentation. The squash blossoms set the stage for everything that followed. Bonus that they have a great wine store that basically extends their wine list. Service was impeccable - on point, not fussy yet attentive! So overall, while I am hesitant to guide more people to this gem and make it more difficult to get a reservation the fact is they deserve these accolades and more.

Arroyo Vino continues to be our favorite restaurant in Santa Fe at any price point. The service is truly amazing, the wine list is beyond compare (only La Casa Sena comes close), and the food is incredible.

I have been visiting top restaurants in Santa Fe for decades and discovered Arroyo Vino a few years ago and still love it. The food is so fresh brimming with local ingredients and creative without trying too hard. I love that there is a great wine shop next door and you can select any bottle and they will open is for $30. A definite must visit if you are a foodie.

At first we were led to a rather diminutive 2-top, and we are not diminutive people so it felt a little tight. Then we were given the option to dine on the patio which was much more spacious, and a gorgeous evening. Also quieter! The appetizers were breathtaking enough to tempt us to cancel our entrees and just have more apps! The ricotta/squash blossom appetizer was magnificent, and the calamari were equally exciting! Great textures and flavors.
Wonderful cocktails, and the best old-fashioned ever! Also the French 75 was perfect for me! Our entrees were delicious, only a slight second to the appetizers. Pork chop, and the Moroccan chicken.
BUT the big "don't-miss" is the Exploding Truffle! Overall one of the best meals ever.

This restaurant has had its ups downs. Last night it was very good but not great. My Bronzino was excellent. One of us felt it was too salty. The gnocchi was tasty. It was just not a wow. Pleasant place go but far out of of town. Not sure it is worth the trip.

Lovely setting, delicious food, excellent wine range & a very friendly & professional wait staff. The Sommelier was very knowledgeable & the Manager made a point of checking with each table to be sure their dining experience was enjoyable. Highly recommend the short drive out of Santa Fe for this lovely dining experience.

Always fantastic. From the amuse bouche to the farm fresh lettuce to the Moroccan Chicken, which is to die for. Service is consistently warm and friendly, and the staff is thoroughly knowledgeable about the menu items and always helps me choose the perfect wine. Arroyo Vino is my all time favorite Santa Fe restaurant. It never disappoints :)

We always enjoy our dining experiences at Arroyo Vino, but this time the food tasted exponentially better. Chef’s style and new additions certainly have enhanced the dining experience. The halibut, branzino and pork chop were superb, as were the deserts and post-dinner mixed drinks.

I went to this restaurant for the first time on Christmas Eve, 2017. It was absolutely fabulous! I was so looking forward to having another meal there, and I wasn’t disappointed. The chef has changed, but the quality and diversity of the food is still excellent. Put this one on your list!

The receptionist was outstanding, very sweet and friendly. The food was great. The place was packed and so the noise level was extremely high. Our waiter was good, just very very busy. I would not call it relaxed dining but we were there on a Saturday and plan to return during the week for a more relaxed meal. My halibut was dry but that is easy to do; everything else was very good and we definitely look forward to returning. Good wine list, recommend, worth the drive from Santa Fe.

Food was very fresh,simple and honest (in a positive sense) with a beautiful blending of flavors. Wine selection is exceptional, particularly by the glass selections. Not a good choice for confidential conversations, tables are fairly close together and room is acoustically live. During dinner all tables were occupied and noise level was moderate although not intrusive.

Best farm to table dining in Santa Fe! The veggies and herbs are from their garden. We share the gardens salad, with a tangy vinaigrette.
My favorite is the gnocchi cooked perfectly and my husband gets the mushroom ravioli - the broth is out of this world! Ask for bread to soak up all of it! Wine selection is great - you can purchase a bottle at the store next door too. We feel completely pampered when we dine here: body and soul.
