The food is good and the wines very reasonable. The issue is service. Understaffing or kitchen meltdown we don’t know, but our Saturday evening had us waiting 45 minutes between salad—a poor at-table Caesar—and tepid entrees, and wait staff was racing madly, as was oenophile cleared our table. Just be prepared for inconsistency and enjoy the journey.

I was initially apprehensive because it took longer than expected to get a server to ask us for our drink order, after we were seated. Once the server came over, he was friendly and good humored. The food was fresh, well prepared, and scrumptious! We were very pleased that the fixed price menu entrees were so varied (i.e., chicken, seafood, beef, lamb). The oyster mushroom soup, with just a hint of spiciness, was delicious! Also, we were pleased with the dessert selection. My partner and I were celebrating our one year anniversary. Dinner for Two was a wonderful and appropriate restaurant for our celebratory meal.

We're local to Santa Fe and went there for our anniversary. It was a Saturday night, so I guess we should have expected a rowdy crowd, but I remembered the restaurant being more intimate. The loud table next to us was very distracting. Not sure we'll be back.. The food was excellent, but didn't quite make up for the overall experience.

I got the steak and it was cooked absolutely perfect- wonderfully melt in the mouth. The side dishes where tasty as well. My dinning partner got the “frenched” chicken and was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was a wonderfully unique off-French experience. Overall 10/10 would recommend.

Sunday 3 course dinner special is a treat, lots of choices.
BUT they have developed a very annoying policy. Dinner is served with one small piece of bread per person, and then they want $3 to get two more small pieces each time. SERIOUSLY!. It's rude to nickel and dime your customers, D42, don't take after the airlines, please!

The food and service were outstanding, but couldn’t talk across the table due to ambient noise (even when guitarist wasn’t playing). We will inquire before returning, whether there is live entertainment, and also request a quiet location. The menu prices would let one think the restaurant will be elegantly mindful of a reasonable need for conversation.

One of the best meals we've had in our 8 years in Santa Fe. Service was outstanding. Our group of four tried multiple appetizers and entrees. The crab cakes and white bean soup were very good, but the oyster mushroom soup was beyond magnificent. We have found very few places in town that fail to overcook fish, but the crab stuffed trout was perfect, as was the veal marsala. The New York strip steak came just slightly over medium rare, but was far more tender and flavorful than expected. Add bananas foster prepared table side, and small but excellent bar selections and we had a truly wonderful evening!

I heard about Dinner for Two from a few people. One coworker couldn’t stop talking about how awesome it was. We decided to try it out and I’m glad we did. From the moment we walked in, everyone was very friendly and attentive. We were shown to our table and the gentleman (I believe the owner) explained the drink menu to us. Shortly after, our server introduced herself as Nikki. Overall this experience was one of the best dining experiences I’ve had. The food was cooked to perfection and was delicious. We got the mushroom oyster soup, the crab stuffed trout, and for dessert the bananas foster. The Pinot Gris paired well with the meal, and our server Nikki was very attentive. I give 5 stars, and can not wait to go back.

We arrived a bit early to our restaurant week reservation and Gabe got things off to the perfect start with a charming smile and a couple glasses of wine as we waited to be seated. They definitely were busy for the event, but it shows they are worth talking about. The food was absolutely delious!!! Returning is non optional

Appetizers were fantastic, the mole on the enchiladas was amazing, and the steak was so flavorful! Price was reasonable too for restaurant week. Service was lacking though and so we were disappointed to see 20% gratuity was already included with our 6 person party.

The house special fillet was absolutely succulent. The veal Marsala while quite flavorful was not quite as tender as one would expect. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. Great crowd for restaurant week and all seemed to be having a good time. Will definitely be coming back.

It was Restaurant Week. Reservations for four at 7PM, but were sat in their wait area until 7:25 without any service. One of the entrees was sold out. Also ran out of Bombay Gin and substituted Hendricks without asking or telling me until I noticed it on the itemized bill. Food was OK, but not worthy of Restaurant Week IMHO. Won’t go back.

What a gem of a restaurant. The owner went out of his way to provide my dinner mate with lamb chops which was off the menu due to “Restaurant Week.” The filet Mignon, the mushroom soup and the crab cakes were classic. Nestor provided spot in service and the Bananas Foster were the perfect ending to a great 2 hour meal. Thank You Dinner for Two!
