Stroganoff, coconut shrimp, pork sliders, risotto; go for HH and order to share! Delicious. Stroganoff pictured was one of the best I’ve ever had.

This place was great! There is no waiting area, so it got tight fast. They sat us 15 minutes before our reservation. We were in and out within 45 minutes. It was wild. The staff were professional and friendly. My waiter was quick and to the point. Didn’t want to chat much which was okay. He was good and tended to us well. The food was fantastic. I got a surf and turf. One of the top 5 and confused for best steak I’ve ever had. Wife got the crab stuffed trout. Was perfect. I see why it has so many awards.

It was great service, good food but we didn’t like the fact we had to order all the food at once. I don’t like the rush when we go to eat.

Putting on a Thanksgiving dinner with huge flow can be a challenge. and they sure met it. The entree selections were great and in particular the veal piccata was perfect. the appetizers of crab cakes were great and the carrot cake the best I have had. and a pretty delicious pumpkin pie. we will be back again for the regular dinner service. but what an enjoyable holiday

Nice turkey dinner with stuffing, cranberries, sweet potatoes and a vegetable medley. Appetizer and dessert were part of the fare, too. Service was outstanding and the noise level was quiet enough to easily hear your tablemates talk.

The happy hour cannot be missed totally worth the price. And the food was outstanding. Came out piping hot and quick. We enjoyed every single dish and we basically tried the whole menu. Some notable dishes are the pumpkin ravioli and the steak with chimichurri, the Carne Asada tacos. Like I said all of them were good.

We had a fantastic dinner here! I was the one in charge of finding a nice place to eat for the In-laws so the pressure was on. Dinner for Two didn’t disappoint. Their signature steak was amazing - cut like butter. Our picky 14 year old wolfed down his yummy veal picatta. At the end, we had Bananas Foster and it was a real treat. Our server was superb - didn’t miss a thing but also wasn’t in the way.
If we’re ever back in Santa Fe, we’ll definitely be back!

We were driving through and spending the night in Santa Fe. We wanted a light meal, and the table-side Caesar salad with soup did not disappoint at all. A very very nice treat. Pricey, but the service was excellent and so was the food.

Poorly greeted upon arrival, server was clearly in the weeds, ability to order and receive drinks severely delayed, and when we attempted to order ceaser salad table side we were advised it would be 20 minutes. We fully understand limited staffing, but upon seating the server could have advised some service may be delayed and remove their strict 2 hour seating limit. We paid our bar tab and were able to get in at Coyote Cafe which was exceptional on all fronts; service, food and atmosphere. The manager at Dinner for Two had no interest in hearing about the poor service.

We looked on open table for a late night booking after 9 PM and I booked a table at 9:15 we showed up at 9:05 and they said the restaurant was closed. And explain the situation about using open table and that there was a 915 open and available and we had booked it and we were there early but they told us we had 10 minutes to order our food. Personally there are so many other places to eat and Santa Fe would never revisit this restaurant
Especially since this was my first time and I have been coming to Santa Fe for 35+ years.

This restaurant never disappoints. It’s one of our favorites, and we bring all our guests here, there are always good choices on the menu, including vegetarian, seafood, chicken, beef, salads, imaginative appetizers, nice desserts and a good selection of wines. As usual, the food was excellent and reasonably priced with human size portions, the service was superb.

Service impecable. Dishes were well prepared and tasty, but no sides. We expected a nice quiet atmosphere because of the name, but it was very loud with several groups. For this reason, probably would not return.

The worst dining experience in Santa Fe. Food was inedible and overpriced. Waiter was rude and unprofessional. Manager was apathetic. So many wonderful dining options in this city, avoid this place. So sad we wasted a dinner here.

Just fabulous, the drinks were superb, the bubble margarita was a blast, the "Harlot" a bourbon pumpkin concoction was excellent and the hors d'oeuvres were very tasty. The piece de resistance was twofold; best by the table Ceasar's salad and the Bananas Foster also prepared at the table were the best we have had in years. Great Service, Great Food and Great Place...we are going back tonite!!!!

It was my first experience at Dinner for Two. Heard great things. It was just okay for me. My food was good unfortunately my wife got ill and knew what it was that caused it as it tasted off. Unfortunate, but I will make another attempt at some point.

Initial service was slow; forgot to bring me soup and they were sorry which wasn't very sincere--blamed the kitchen staff which does not please me as I know they work hard--server should have paid more attention; 2 of the dinners were lukewarm, like they had been sitting under warming lights. Cesar salad was very good. When I asked for pepper, server gave me these little glass shakers; the MAN next to me then asked and he got pepper from a mill ground by the server.
