Dinner for Two is one of our favorite restaurants. Last year the ownership changed and they updated the interior, adding a bar area and opening up the main dining space. It's really lovely. We've recommended "Dfor2" often. They're always congenial. We usually order the table-side Caesar salad. I don't eat veal, so they are always willing to make my favorite piccata with chicken. Great desserts, too. Love the carrot cake!

Date night on Friday and we found a new favorite! Ambiance was cozy and intimate and perfect for either casual or as dressy as you want to be. Had the vegetarian enchiladas and the chicken stuffed with cream cheese and green chile. Great selection of drinks but I highly recommend the Grand Margarita. Service was excellent too. We have always wanted to try and I’m so glad we did. Can’t wait to go back and try something else, oh, and have another margarita 😜👏🏽👏🏽!!

This is a very small restaurant seating too many people. The tables are about two feet apart with them trying to prepare food table side which is just very uncomfortable.
We started out with coconut shrimp, which was one of their specialties. It was not even coconut shrimp. It was three small shrimp sautéed with a dip. Next we ordered the Caesar salad which is prepared table side. It was made with sriracha sauce and was too hot for me. We also ordered the chateaubriand for two. The cut of meat resembled a round roast and was tougher than a round roast. We couldn’t eat it. I wanted to order desert as was still hungry but the service was so terrible that after waiting for 20 minutes for the waiter to return to our table, I decided it would also be disappointing so we got our check for $135.00 for one of the worst meats off our lives. Very disappointed in the whole experience to say the least.

My second time there, I wanted to go because of the great happy hour and because my husband had never been, but we could not take advantage of that in the dining room. Dinner was really good, a good dinner for a special occasion, Valentine's celebration, and we will be back more often for happy hour.

Last Valentine’s night 2018 dinner was wonderful....this year not so much. To start there was a midnight Martini that they failed to mention had whipped egg whites on top 🤢. The corn bread muffins? Were very tasteless which arrived after we sat down. Unfortunately everyone to a person compared to this year‘s entree, of which we had several different things, to last year‘s meal very negatively. We very much want him to be successful with the new chef and new ambience. We think it is a work in progress.

Valentine’s Day

We dine here frequently. Food was as good as always, service was not as good as normal probably due to the large number of reservations. We like the quality of food at Dinner for Two and the value as compared to many other restaurants in Santa Fe.

As usual, Dinner for Two did not disappoint us as we enjoyed an early Valentine's dinner on the 13th. They've expanded the menu since we were last there and the new choices look wonderful; my husband and I both tried a new menu item and can't wait to go back. Oh yes...the service can't be beat!

I'm certain we'll return again and again. There were a few rough spots in the service, perhaps precipitated by a party of 20 needing constant attention. (Shouldn't restaurants bring in extra staff for these large groups?) Fried chicken: cheapest entree on the menu and the best fried chicken I've ever eaten. Great food and great value!

My Husband and I and a friend went to celebrate our 47th anniversary. We were so disappointed with the service, while people were nice they were disorganized, late on offering drinks, food was cold, the room was cold we had to keep our jackets on, the entire menu was overpriced for the quality. My steak was over done; the halibut was cold, the rib-eye was fair. We go to numerous restaurants in Santa Fe and were so disappointed. Maybe it was the day and they were short staffed but one of the worst most disappointing and over priced restaurants in Santa Fe.

The only only issue I had was a poor method of dealing with coats and hats at the door.
I checked my hat as we entered and it was taken by someone else. May or may not have been deliberate but was still disappointing.

Comments: parking options unknown & confusing. I drove around looking for suitable parking for quite awhile. It wasn't until I arrived & mentioned this, that the hostess explained where additional parking was available after 5pm. Perhaps, it could be stated when making the reservation. Other than not offering more water, when our glasses were clearly empty, our waiter was good. We thoroughly enjoyed the trout! Cooked to perfection & ample portions as well. Anxious to try the Happy Hour...will definitely visit for dinner again! Thank you for an enjoyable evening...

My boyfriend and I had an amazing time at Dinner for Two. The food was divine - the green chile cornbread is out of this world. The twin lobster tails and the ribeye were both cooked to perfection. The ambiance was cozy and super romantic and the live music made the evening more magical. Definitely recommend and I will most definitely return.

Our dinner was excellent, starting with the amazing table prepared Caesar salad (worth the price of admission right there). We moved on to the prime rib special. The meat is smoked, an unusual touch but cooked to perfection and the smoke added a nice element to the steak. It was superb! One of the best steaks I’ve had in a while. This restaurant doesn’t get the tourist traffic that other Santa Fe restaurants get but that’s just as well for us locals who know where to go for a good meal. With the newly renovated layout, the space is a lot more comfortable than before. Can’t recommend Table for Two Enough!
