    Always a great experience at Dinner for Two! Went for Santa Fe Restaurant Week…a winner. Crab cakes and mushroom soup to start…delicious!! Entrees of veal Marsala and crab stuffed trout…outstanding. Desserts of key lime pie and carrot cake were terrific!!

    Restaurant week menu was overpriced. Caesar salad was skimpy, the veal piccata was tough… The mashed potatoes were OK. The Keylime pie was adequate.

    Filet was cooked to perfection! Mushroom soup - delish! Veal piccata was tough and entire plate was cold. The offer to warm up was offered made but the veal was tough so we declined. Did not know it was restaurant week. Was not on Donner for 2’s website or booking website. We knew what we were going to order but it was not offered. Only the fixe priced menu was available.

    We visited dinner for two for restaurant week. I ordered the coffee crusted fillet mignon, and my companion ordered the New York strip. Both prepared on point. If dining here, the banana fosters for two is a must for dessert.

    Food and service was really good, the restaurant can get a bit cramped, lots of tables and people but they can handle it. The steak (New York) was really cooked to perfection, the only thing I wasn't crazy about was it had a bit too much fat on the top and edges, and the meat wasn't as tender as I have had at other restaurants. The table side bananas foster was excellent !! wine selection was large with variety.

    Our group had wonderful dinners with a great menu choice for Restaurant Week. The blue crab cakes, Caesar salad, veal marsala, trout, prime NY steak, and key lime pie were excellent. The service was great and unhurried even though the restaurant was extremely busy. The only problem was that the noise level was so high that it was hard to carry on a conversation.

    For us, Restaurant Week might been a bad choice. We will give it another chance, but the noise level in the High top table area was loud and not at all romantic as reviews had noted. Food was good, not spectacular. Service was great.

    Restaurant week - prefix menu - great value! Festive atmosphere - dimly lit with candlelight. Friendly, patient, responsive wait staff. Interesting and tasty drink specials. Main courses (steak, fish, chicken) were all delicious and prepared with gourmet seasonings and sides. Bananas Foster prepared table-side was outstanding!

    The Restaurant Week was top-notch, and it was hard to choose just one appetizer, one entree, and one dessert. The bottle of cabernet on the RW menu was perfect, and our waiter could not have been more attentive. Well done, D42!

    I don’t understand how this place has good reviews. I have tried it three times now and have confirmed it is all around a weird place. The ambiance is strange (dated / cheap decor with loud party music) and the menus look like they were created by a 10 year old that is learning Microsoft word. The saving grace is the filet, which is AMAZING, but the rest of the food is comparable to wedding buffet food. They ONLY serve sweet cocktails and the server did not let us know we could order off menu until the end of the meal after we had expressed we do not care for sweet drinks and he confirmed everything on menu was sweet. The food comes out in 5 minutes and everything feels very rushed. Overall, very strange.

    We had a delicious meal with good service, delicious food and a lovely ambience. The flaming Banana's Foster served table-side was quite popular and a spectacular show throughout the evening. The truffled oyster mushroom soup was awesome, the filet cooked perfectly with a delightful cocoa crust and pomegranate reduction sauce, the veal and chicken were quite good. The carrot cake was amazingly light but the chocolate cake was just so-so... Sadly, they were not serving Tres Leches during restaurant week. Overall a lovely dinner for four.

    We were celebrating our 28th anniversary, and we had a perfect dinner from beginning to end. The service, food, ambiance, and  timeliness of the food. This happens very rarely. . Jackie is an incredible server. She paid attention to every detail.  It is a restaurant week in Santa Fe, so they had a prix fixe menu. I chose the cream of mushroom soup, Veal Marsala, and chocolate cake. My husband had the crab cakes, stuffed chicken breast, and carrot cake. We each had a glass of prosecco to celebrate.  The sauce on veal marsala was outstanding.   The ambiance was delightful, and we had a romantic table.  They had a classical guitarist playing.  I can't say enough good things about this restaurant.  We will definitely be back.

    The young busser/salad maker was fantastic...the rest of the experience was not so good. This was my 60th birthday dinner that was meant to be special but it was a very sad ending to an otherwise awesome day. We were seated in the very back of the restaurant. We did not know if that was coincendence or because I am an African American. We had a 7:15p reservation and it was literally 8:30p when our plates arrived. The fish was dry and the vegetables were mushy and greasy. Granted there was a delay in having our salad prepared, which we did agree to but 90 minutes to get two plates? They could have negotiated brining out the main meal first and following up with a salad but we did not even have a chance to discuss it as the waiter was mostly missing in action. We even had to chase him down to pay and when we complained to the manager he just shrugged it off and told us to tip appropriately.

    A little pricey but that's Santa Fe. First time there and we really enjoyed it. Going back to try the table-side Cesear salad and the Sampler. You won't find a better Bananas Foster anywhere in town!

    I truly love this place. It’s my ‘go to’ Happy Hour spot. I took my ex-husband (ha!), and he was amazed at the quality & variety on the menu as he got to try several(!) dishes. And the service was fabulous. I wish I knew our waiter’s name so I could give him a shout out. Will be returning very soon!!!
