The food was inconsistent. We shared the chateaubriand. It had a burnt taste. The beet salad was wilted the beets tough. Good carrot cake and mushroom soup.
Service was good, overall setting very nice.
Given the high reputation and impressive menu, we held it to a very high standard and we’re surprised it didn’t measure up. We wouldn’t return.

We had a wonderful experience at Dinner for Two. It started when we were warmly greeted by the host until our birthday celebration at the end with sparklers. The Caesar salad prepared table side was delicious, as was all of our courses, but for me the mussels were the winner. When we left, there was a line outside to the end of the block. So, be sure to make reservations for a special evening at Dinner for Two, you won’t be disappointed!

Sorry, dinner was not good, they were going to cook at our table, we waited about 1 hour after appetizers arrived finally the person that sat us came and cooked?? Price was very expensive for food quality and service. Never again.

Use the new outdoor area and It was very loud. The service seemed a little hectic although it was happy hour but we had a ride for dinner. The French chicken was a little dry. The steak was a little undercooked and sinewy. Flavors overall were very good. I had a better experience the last time I was seated indoors.

Looking forward to dinner at Table for Two. Could have been an off night in the kitchen. Dinner mediocre and not worth the $$$.

Pleasant atmosphere, good drinks, really good food.
Good service. A little noisy out on the street, plus the music could have been more sedate.
In general, a lovely place to come, and I'm actually going back there tomorrow to meet friends!

what a nice find. have not been here in two years, patio refurbish is fantastic. nice wine list, solid menu, service was really sharp. Elvis made our tableside caesar salad - and it was just right.
we went for dinner but it may become a happy hour favorite as well.

Fantastic restaurant! Table side prepared ceasar salad is a must have. We also had shrimp pasta (out of scallops) and veal Marsala. Got the carrot cake to go….should have gotten two pieces!

One of the many special things about Dinner for Two is they manage to keep the dining space inside cozy but at the same time you still feel comfortable and not crowded together, like some other Santa Fe dinning spaces.
You should not miss the love bubble margarita it’s an amazing drink I chose hello kitty this time rum punch drink that was fantastic.
We came for the veal piccata and some especially delicious mushroom soup and they didn’t disappoint!
As a matter of fact I have some pictures of our drinks but as soon as our main course arrived we didn’t waste any time! I might suggest the mushroom soup before your dinner course it is absolutely delicious!
Truly one of my favorite places in Santa Fe!

Our family has been at Dinner for Two various times for important celebrations, (birthdays, anniversaries). We have brought friends along and have had wonderful times, until the last one. We almost felt we were at a different restaurant, ambience, service and food have declined significantly. It was obvious they were short staff. Our server was very friendly but was having a hard time keeping up with all the tables assigned to him. Our drink order took over 25 minutes to be served, and our food although well prepared as usual, the portion size were not the same as before. I am 110 lbs, my daughter is 106 and my husband is 170, so we are pretty normal and yet we left the restaurant still feeling hungry after paying $170 for dinner. Sadly we will not be going back to what it used to be one of our favorite restaurants in Santa Fe. A lot has changed since they completed the patio renovation.

We enjoyed our evening at Dinner for Two. We had the full experience, Ceaser Salad for two, Chateaubriand for two, and Bananas Foster for two - all done tableside. We loved our table side servers/chefs and the food was delicious! We wish our actual server had been a little more attentive during the evening - that is was our only complaint. Great place for a romantic evening!

The restaurant came highly touted...and it did not disappoint. I know it's a steakhouse, but I had one of my favorites - - veal piccata, which was delicious. My wife enjoyed the mushroom soup and the coconut shrimp as her dinner. We'll be back in Santa Fe in December, and I'll have a steak then.

First dinner out in quite a while. Perfect choice for us. Outside dining, perfect weather and service. Sandy had a strawberry and beet salad and trout stuffed with crab I had pork sliders and Frenched chicken in a delicious gravy, mashed potatoes and root veggies. Fine dining at its best. Wait staff was attentive and Andy (owner) was there to help if needed. Ted

Been meaning to go there for years and glad we finally did! Main courses were wonderful, both the veal piccata and the pork enchilada with mole sauce. Unfortunately, the starter salad just wasn't quite crisp enough. Service was fine...noise level was tolerable, but louder than anticipated.

We were seated 15 minutes past reservation time. Service was slow. Drinks arrived after first course. Entre arrived 20 minutes later. There for 2 hours, leaving soon after paying bill. Seemed to be plenty of personnel, but appeared to be inefficient in their service. However, must have a great chef.

Stopped by Table for Two and were lucky enough to catch their happy hour in the bar. Great craft cocktails and the food was outstanding. Great service from Jason . Couldn't have asked for a better late afternoon. Had bananas foster tableside for dessert, it was enough for 4 people but the 2 of us polished it off. The margaritas were some of the best I've ever had.

Lovely outside patio and a generous food and drink menu for happy hour. It’s a pleasure to sit there and enjoy the excellent food, drink and service. Especially loved the shrimp ceviche tacos, pork sliders and asparagus soup. If only motorcycles had mufflers! Despite that it was a lovely evening.

Service was outstanding. Martini was poor (the bar brand gin is New Amsterdam-yuck) had to send it back and reorder with Hendrix (they didn't have Beefeater !!!) Food was very good and reasonably priced. Noise level was horrible as the outdoor patio sits alongside a BUSY street. Nevertheless, it seems to be a very popular spot as it has been packed the night we ate there and every night when we drive by it.
