About Arroyo Vino
Arroyo Vino serves a seasonal menu of progressive american fare inspired by our on premise garden and local purveyors. Also available is a 5 course Chef's Tasting Menu which focuses on the daily harvest in our garden, seasonal local and wild foraged produce. 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.

Arroyo Vino Ratings and Reviews
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.
Arroyo Vino was something of a disappointment. Bare room that could be anywhere in the world--no Santa Fe ambiance, southwest feeling or even some strong culinary decor. The food was good and the service attentive, but the overall experience was rather bland.
This restaurant is close to 10 mins away from downtown Santa Fe and a challenge to find at night. We were greeted immediately at the entrance to the wine shop and restaurant. We browsed the wines before being seated. You can buy wines from the shop but they still tack on a $30 corkage fee if served in the restaurant. The wines on the menu are the same in the shop (and same price). The red wines tend to lean more toward pinot noirs, riojas, and chateauneuf du papes. Our service was very friendly and attentive (many places serve wine but don't pour). The food is mainly from their approximately one acre of farm surrounding the restaurant. We started with a Japanese radish (baby daikon) amuse bouche in chipotle-like aioli (sorry, forgot the details) and surprised that it didn't have that peppery taste that daikon usually has. Really good. We had a house made venison sausage with beets. It was a pretty good sized appetizer. My friend ordered the halibut and enjoyed hers. I had a poached salmon (would have been better seared with crispy skin) on a bed of lentils and roasted grapes but the dish was delicious nonetheless. We had a full lunch that day so we did not order any dessert. This is a restaurant that we would come back to.
So glad we came to check this place out during our visit in Santa Fe! We did the tasting menu and added two plates. Everything was delicious. The only thing I could have done without was the charcuterie plate (two pate, two pickled veggies and two meats) mostly because I'm not a big fan pate and pickled veggies. The two meats were great. That said, it's a great price for everything we got and we'd definitely come back for the great service and wine options.
We recently celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary at Arroyo Vino and as ever the experience was outstanding - from the extra (and unexpected!) touch of having flowers on our table to finishing with a candle in our surprise sorbet. The time and care the staff took made the night even more special for us. Our meal was marvelous too. The pear and sun choke salad was a perfect combination of tart and earthy roasted goodness. And the salmon dish was one of the best things we have eaten in a long time. Maybe ever. The perfectly seasoned and cooked salmon with the tart apple and celery salad and pumpkin purée was fall and the ocean in one bite. If you want imaginative, thoughtful and expertly executed dishes created with fresh ingredients that set a new bar for ”local” (since they were harvested that day from their own organic garden; #localistheirbackyard) served with style and grace, come to Arroyo Vino.
Fabulous as always. This restaurant has really found its stride and is our favorite restaurant in Santa Fe by far. The chef is terrifically inventive, modern, and the flavors and textures of the food is just outstanding. Wonderful dishes tonight included a rabbit and foie gras terrine which was exceptional and a vegetarian entree which we shared as an appetizer (an amazing turnip roll with a superb squash puree sauce). Entrees we all thoroughly enjoyed were the venison with mole, the duck breast with smoked fig jam (fabulous) and cipolline onions, and the halibut. Desserts are okay, but not as good as the main courses. The wine list and service are exceptional. Congratulations and thanks!
Arroyo Vino is our first choice for excellent dining in Santa Fe. Chef Colin creates an amazing menu which changes as the on site garden produces a variety of excellent produce. I ordered the tasting menu which offered some items I might not usually order and enjoyed every course! My husband ordered the salmon and said "that was the best salmon meal I've ever eaten". The service was impeccable by all and especially our server Jonathan.
If you're in Santa Fe don't miss this fine dining experience.
This place continues to amaze me. Their week end, six course tasting menu is unlike any high end meal I’ve ever had. With or without the wine pairings, which are unusual but spot on, the food and service take center stage. Truly amazing.
As an example of the food we were served, we had an incredible honey themed desert in honor of the chef’s wife who keeps hives locally. From the honey cream filled meringue shaped like a hive to the cube of an actual hive on each plate, it was wonderful. Every dish was just as original and spectacular.
The service was also incredible. My wife loves blue cheese stuffed olives in her martini, and the bartender made them for her, replacing the pimento with Reyes Point blue cheese.
We love this place!
Service was very professional. Wait staff was friendly and helpful with choices. The food was well selected, perfectly prepared, creative, put together artistically on the plate and proudly served. Desserts were seductive (as I like them) and unusual flavor combinations. It was a special occasion dinner and all five of us considered it an outstanding experience.
What an incredible way to celebrate a birthday and oh what a restaurant. A couple of friends took me out to Arroyo Vino where their good friend Julian Martinez is the Manager/Sommelier. He greeted us at the host station showed us to our table where his handpicked server Jonathan took care of us. Julian also picked a wine to pair with dinner, Domaine Hauvette - Les Baux de Provence 2011, a quite interesting and different red wine.
Jonathan brought us an amuse plate with skewered Idiazabal cheese, gordal olives, chorizo, piquillo pepper, and baby cucumber while we perused the menu. Two of us had the special addition to the menu for the day an heirloom tomato salad freshly picked from the their garden and we also had the corn and fennel bisque with a smoked king salmon croquette topped with horseradish cream atop foraged mushrooms and lovage succotash. Both incredible dishes and worth the drive out to the restaurant.
I also ordered a shared plate of Kyzer Farms pork shank confit stuffed baby red cabbages on red cabbage puree, with caraway seed, Brussels sprouts slaw, granny smith apples, and rye crackers. My other friend ordered the wild caught Alaskan halibut with root vegetable hash, housemade pancetta, butternut squash velouté and whipped cider. I had a bite of this and it was another amazing dish.
By the time dessert rolled around we broke down and ordered two, not three: the dark chocolate and macadamia nut with marshmallow fluff, salted caramel and macadamia ice cream and the honeycomb and horchata, a bee pollen meringue, almond sable and 2017 honeycomb. Both were outstanding.
We love Arroyo Vino. It's our neighborhood restaurant. We especially like eating outside in the summer. We go for special occasions, to take guests from out of town and just for a regular dinner. The food is generally very good, great wine selection, service is usually very good and we generally like the ambiance. We were there the other night for a special birthday dinner, just the two of us, and were seated near a party of 12. It started out fine but as they drank more, they became very loud and annoying. I said something to our waiter. It was clear they were not going to say anything to the group so I asked to be moved. They did accommodate us. There was a noisy part of 8 at that end but tame by comparison (although the other tables around us were complaining). They also comped us dessert and thanked us for not making it into a major issue. I had not disclosed that this was a special occasion. We did suggest that perhaps the restaurant should consider a separate space for bigger parties since it's just a big open room and outdoors had been closed down. The room does get noisy.
Not our first visit but we won't rush back. Our server was very good and sommelier chose an excellent wine. To start, the stone fruit salad and the bisque were excellent. However, two of the entrees were sub par. The NY Strip was ordered rare and what was served was a fillet cooked MEDIUM with no trace of flavor of bone marrow or truffle; additionally, that meal was served room temperature. The salmon dish was overcooked and dry. The vegetarian dish served with curry was really tasty.
