The location is unusual but beautiful, since it’s Santa Fe - it’s out in a bedroom community amongst high end homes. The space is reminiscent of a country wine store on one end and the dining area is a luxury farm house room with some nice artwork. It’s intimate and not at all fussy. The wait staff was friendly and helpful.

We started with the Charcuterie plate, which was excellent with my Hendricks martini. Aside from the usual cured meats, it came with a very rich duck confit-type of pate that was delicious with small slices of their bread that the server offered in addition to the crostini.

I ordered the Beef Short Rib and it came in a deep bowl with whipped potatoes, baby multicolored carrots, and a broth that was extremely flavorful without being overbearing. It was tender and delicious and filling, even though it looked smallish in the large bowl.

I was a bit disappointed in Arroyo Vino. I had heard so many good things about it. However, we found out after we were seated that the chef had recently left and the new one had not yet started. I suspect this had a lot to do with the food. Our opinion was that the food just had too much going on. The flavors were not necessarily balanced. And there was very little nuance to allow the ingredients to shine. The overall effect was a very heavy meal when we actually ordered light.

On the positive side, cocktails and wine list are excellent. Service was also very good. Lovely views and friendly/knowledgeable sommelier. Hopefully, once the new chef has gotten her bearings, things will pick up on the food side and it will be a place we will want to return.

Unfortunately after a promising start, Arroyo Vino has descended into the realm of fussy, pretentious cooking focused on ostentatious presentations that cannot disguise unimaginative flavor and texture combinations. Adding to disappointment with mediocre offerings from the kitchen, the front-end staff is led by a smug Maitre d’hotel with very sketchy knowledge of wines and foods. Poor value, in short, with many wonderful alternatives for good dining in the Santa Fe area.

A bit of a drive from Santa Fe but well worth it. The service was impeccable, the food inspired and all delivered in a nice quiet, modern, low key setting. The cheese plate was a great selection, the tuna appetizer special outstanding, the short rib excellent but the bananas foster bread pudding was to die for! We would go back in a heartbeat! Well done!

Hadn't been to Arroyo Vino in a couple months so we booked a table for four during Santa Fe Restaurant week. The menu was a fixed price for three courses with three choices per course. The Brussel sprouts were fabulous as a starter. They were tender and somewhat charred but excellent. I had the oyster chowder as a first and the lamb tenderloin as my second. Both were outstanding. My wife's risotto as a second was very good and the lobster as a second was also top shelf. I hope management will add the brussel sprouts as well as the lamb to their every day menu.

Great meal for Santa Fe Restaurant Week. Great food and great service. We loved the shared cheese and charcuterie plates that the four of us shared to start with. A very pleasant evening and worth the price!

The appetizers and firsts were excellent, but the sole meunière and the duck entrees were inedible. The sole tasted like it had been marinated in liquid smoke and the duck tasted off. We ordered a bottle of wine, and sent it back after the server poured a taste because it was not at all what the sommelier had described. The server turned on her heels and walked away when we declined the bottle and sent someone else over to deal with us. As it turns out, the server had uncorked the wrong bottle of wine! When the sommelier poured the correct wine, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Overall rather disappointing , between the brusque service and the truly awful entrees.

Arroyo Vino continues to excel. Fresh local ingredients, many interesting and good menu choices, outstanding wine list, attentive but not intrusive service. Has full bar service. I have never felt rushed. Not your ordinary restaurant. Truly exceptional pastas, and all their items are about the quality of the food, coupled with presentation. Highly recommended.

Food was very good. Our waiter was excellent and when we asked for a wine suggestion he had the manager of the wine store stop by who gave an excellent suggestion. Their policy is the store price plus $30.00 instead of the normal 100% markup in most restaurants. We enjoyed the
experience and will go back in the future.

Wow! We spent a week in Santa Fe, and ate very, very well, but this was a real stand-out! A lovely setting about 5 miles outside of town on a lovely hilltop. Everything, from the warm welcome to the friendly yet professional service to the magnificent menu was first rate. Our lovely waitress even took the time to provide tips for us on our visit to the next day to Bandelier and Los Alamos, and all 6 of us agreed it was the absolute standout among all the highly-rated spots we visited in Santa Fe. It'll be at the top of our list next visit - absolutely!

We always love coming here! We chose the tasting menu and the sommelier recommended an excellent wine to pair with the meal. Sadly, the stomach bug I thought I had gotten over reared it ugly head halfway through the meal. They were kind and boxed up the food for me to enjoy later. Thanks again for taking such great care of us.
