The new fall menu has many delectable choices. Half price wine on Wednesdays is a bonus.
On holiday and picked this place for our first meal in Santa Fe. It was impressive in every way. Great service, creative menu, quality ingredients and nice presentation. Wine store has many favorites, some hard to get wines.
Everything is lovely at the restaurant except for it’s location. On dark roads at 6:30 p.m. it is difficult to find and then return to downtown Santa Fe
Limited but imaginative menu which was well executed. Server was efficient but didn’t connect. Wine pour buy-the-glass was too small ... more like a proper pour if served from a full bottle order as apposed to b-t-g. Remotely located which may be more inconvenient for local residents rather than tourists in town.
Wine store/restaurant in a great combination like the Wine Seller in North San Diego.
GREAT birthday celebration!!
Great food, great service...only drawback is it's a bit of a drive out of Santa Fe, and the ambiance is a little "cold"--not a warm dining room. But the other things make up for that.
Food selection was interesting and descriptions were appetizing. Solid wine list and plus added wine shop options. More interesting than most in Santa Fe.
Taste was bold and expressive. Presentation was straight forward and not pretentious, but well done. Timing of the meal was great.
Prices were Santa Fe top end high for the modest ambiance and very capable, but understaffed dining room. Could use a sommelier and bussers. Waiter had to do everything and he was professional and attentive but obviously over worked.
It could be the very best restaurant in Santa Fe, if the room was totally remodeled, new tabletop and decorative elements to match the elevated food. Bar in the middle of the dining room is for popularly priced and executed food, not fine dining. Lighting was not particularly good, and too much sunset, especially on clear bright evenings. There is a definite disconnect between quality and execution of food and modest decor.
Also, maybe they should consider another higher end location in Santa Fe, since Las Companas is whole other town, and make the original location a bistro.
This was our first visit. We loved that you can stroll thru the wine racks and find the perfect wine. There was also a knowledgeable person on staff to help us.
Our meal was delicious and creative. Server was friendly and attentive.
Food was absolutely amazing. Chicken liver pate, fried green tomatoes and crab, bass, scallops, tempura squash blossoms! Everything we had was wonderful. Service was good and attentive.
It was really a wonderful experience from start to finish!
Wonderful as usual. Food, service, ambience all terrific
Arroyo Vino is an outstanding restaurant in every respect. It is a little noisy, but no more so than many other restaurants.
I had not been to Arroyo Vino in a couple years and it did not disappoint. The food is fresh and has a spectacular melding of flavors, the service was wonderful, the sommelier helped us choose a wonderful bottle of wine and great cocktails.
Always the best meal we eat in Santa Fe.
We come to Santa Fe several times a year and are never disappointed in the restaurant. Sophisticated, inventive and delicious food. A level above most of the other restaurants in Santa Fe and well worth the 15 minute drive from center if town to dine at this special place and wine shop to boot.
Arroyo Vino came highly recommended from a trusted source so perhaps our experience was not typical. The ambiance is lovely, and the service, from beginning to end was excellent. I ordered the tempura vegetables and the salmon. My husband had the Tuna tartare and the lamb. The vegetables were tossed in a bowl on top of a sauce and were difficult to eat as most had to be cut. They were so so. My husband's Tuna tartare was excellent. My salmon was cold and very dry. When I told our server about it, she responded quickly and thoughtfully, acknowledging that I was not the first person to have this experience. A warm, just cooked piece of salmon was delivered that was better. My husband's lamb was tasty but quite fatty. The restaurant was packed (a Saturday night), and one could tell the staff were racing. To their credit, they gave us a free round of drinks and did not charge for the salmon. We were disappointed in our experience, but felt the front of the house staff were terrific. Perhaps worth another try.
Food was great. Especially the squash blossoms appetizer.
After dinner we had the truffle bursts. Wow. What a flavor surprise. Very nice restaurant for a special occassion.
This restaurant is over priced - the starters were fresh and creative....but entrees are blah. $39 for grilled salmon? Really? Highlight was that our waiter was fantastic! The host was less than welcoming ...he seemed like he didn’t want to be there...
Overall poor value compared to the other fantastic choices in Santa Fe for a $200 dinner ( included a bottle of wine) for 2. We won’t be returning.
Our waiter was overly attentive and we felt we were being rushed to order. Also, why would a waiter ask, "How is your wine behaving??"
The miso butter changed my life. Entrees are delicious and health conscious. And the liquid truffle is magical. What a great night!
Always our favorite. Creative cuisine, an exceptional wine list, and an atmosphere conducive to conversation. A perfect dinner every time.
Last Friday evening (08/16/19) we made our way out of central Santa Fe to the lush suburbs and enjoyed a fine meal at Arroyo Vino. Our meal started off with a very pleasing amuse bouche consisting of a smoky gazpacho--very satisfying. Our official starters were a Salmon Tartare and a Farro Salad--equally pleasing. Our mains were a Chicken Diavolo ( with Calabrian chiles--bright and spicy) and a very fine Grilled Branzino. Our dessert was a wonderful Almond Cake. As delightful as eating at Arroyo Vino is the chance to check out their wonderful wine shop. It's worth the trip out of town.
Best meal this Summer!! Everything was quite good with wonderful service and a great sommelier!
This is the 2nd time I have dined at Arroyo Vino in the last couple of months. Both times the appetizers and salads were delicious but the fish was over cooked. Great waitstaff and good cocktails but the chef needs to pay better attention to the preparation of the fish.
This was my second visit and it was no different than the first. We all loved it! The food, service, and ambiance were wonderful. We'll be back for sure. Thank you!!
I was with two friends and we were having a great time over hors d'ouevres, so much so that our mains sat for sometime and came out the worse for wear. This is a service failure; the basic quality was good.
I had been here a couple or three times before, but under the previous chef who was a wizard with soups and sauces. No soups or sauces on this menu. One friend's pasta looked a bit watery, probably a result of sitting.
I object to the "plates", which are deep bowls and make eating lamb chops (my main) or schnitzel (the other friend's main) awkward. They are pretty, but black and make the food look gray.
Wonderful place to have dinner if you are looking for flawless execution from the kitchen and the service!
Lovely restaurant with very attentive staff. Food was delicious. We received a hand written thank you note a few days later in our mailbox. Wow, who does that anymore? We just moved to Santa fe, looking for a house in Las Campanas, and will return often to Arroyo Vino.
Made me feel like a King on my birthday. Thanks for the experience.
We had a 1st class, gourmet dining experience room start to finish. We were greeted at the door and shown to our table promptly. Our server, Heather, was one of the top server's in Santa Fe. She was responsive to questions, gave meaningful suggestions, was attentive but not intrusive, knowledgable and very nice. The food was beautifully prepared and presented and each dish was delicious and James Beard worthy, in my opinion. Amazing chicken liver pate, smooth as silk. Swordfish, salmon and pasta with squash blossoms....yummy! And dessert, a peach panna cotta that was amazing and a MUST if you go.....the exploding truffle! If you haven't been go!
The wine bar menu was very good. The appetizer (liver pate) was a success. However, two of the entrees (dourade and pork schnitzel) were decidedly mediocre. The dourade had a heavy overlay of (pesto?) sauce which would not have been a problem except that the head and bony tail were also on the plate covered by sauce so I inadvertently chomped on them, leaving a distinct aftertaste. My partner ate maybe one-fourth of the schnitzel and did not like its taste. Maybe we had a bad night?
I loved this place so, so much. Lovely ambience, food to die for and such a gracious, delightful server who very sweetly tracked down some recipes we were hankering for. Thanks Hannah!
Pre-opera dinner on the patio was perfect! They even gave us an ice pack so our leftovers wouldn’t suffer while we were at the opera! Love this place....
Excellent food and efficient, friendly and unobtrusive service in a beautiful setting. Appetizers and main dishes were excellent, and the wine selection is huge! Dessert was not as pleasing but that's likely a result of the particular choice rather than any reflection on quality or skill. The menu items are pricey, be prepared by reading the menu online. Definitely worth it in quality, presentation and ambience.
Food was delicious. There is a great opportunity for AV to show off their wines by the glass. However, $19 for a small pour of Barbera is self-defeating.
Delicious and fresh ingredients. Cooking was clean and showcases the quality of the kitchen garden. Very diverse wine selection. Well worth the short drive out of town.
The best restaurant in Santa Fe, and fortunately it is in our neighbor ♥️
Always a treat, this visit to Arroyo Vino was the best ever. Superbly prepared food and sensational wine served with quiet, unstuffy elegance. An all-time favourite.
Great food, congenial elegant atmosphere. Nice wines.
