They have a prix fixe menu for Sunday dinner. Mushroom soup and trout dish were amazing. Homemade pies to choose from for dessert.
The Sunday special menu was awesome! They have a preset menu on Sundays, that includes soup, entree, and dessert. The veal Marsala was great. They bake their own bread which is delicious. The restaurant is quiet and our server was delightful. We also enjoyed the live music, nice dinner atmosphere.
The Caesar salad is a must. Level 3 if you like anchovy and garlic taste! Also, the bananas foster is to die for!
Our meal was wonderful, ambience was great, food was a tad pricey but the filet mignon was worth it. Service was just average --- our server was not super attentive. Very nice place though overall. We would come back!
This is a regular spot for us for many reasons. That being said, their table side Caesar salad is great, just be sure to ask for Chris if you are ordering it - he makes it better than anyone.
Service is good, just not great. We had 2 bottles of wine - 1 sparkling and 1 still and after the initial pour, ended up pouring our own. Not that we mind in a casual restaurant, but D42 doesn't really feel casual. This is a local, family owned and operated restaurant and the Sunday dinner deal is the best in town. Definitely check them out.
Outstanding dinner -- food and wine were excellent -- service was very good! Value is outstanding - will be going back!
We went for restaurant week and they were only serving the restaurant week menu so you would think the service and food would be great. The veal piñata was still raw and the steak was under cooked, we sent it back and they were both still not cooked properly. Will not return
We went for Restaurant Week and enjoyed our experience. We've been here many times and will continue to go.
Had a great time. Parking not the greatest. Will be back though.
The appetizers and dessert were great. Servers were kind and the food was fast. The food itself wasn't what we expected it would be. The chicken was bland and the green Chile looked like frozen Chile. The gravy was tasty. All in all we gave it a 5 to 6 out of 10.
Food delicious, room temperature cold. Did express with no regard. We ended up wearing jacket
Everything was great until we found a hair in our bread. As in the hair was baked into the loaf of bread we were eating. The server didn’t so much as apologize for this unsanitary episode. We understand things happen but, it should at least be acknowledged.
Food was good had the fried chicken but the biscuit was baked differently from what I was used too. But still quite good, exceptional service and staff wonderful. Went during New Mexico Restaraunt week. Good value.
We went for Restaurant Week and thoroughly enjoyed our meals—there were six of us and we all enjoyed our meals. We will definitely return.
We are locals and find this among our favorites in town. Not only is their Caesar salad amazing, but it is also prepared table side. So is their Chateaubriand and Banana Foster. They are all superb. I really love their mushroom soup too and order it every time it’s featured. The people there treat you well and we always leave having had a good experience. Oh and check out the homemade pies that the owner makes himself. You won’t be disappointed. Our last visit was during Restaurant Week. It was such a good value with great choices for a fixed price.
We had a great dinner with friends during Santa Fe Restaurant week. Our table was a little delayed being set up so we had a wait - but they served us a glass of free champagne while waiting! Yea! Our meal was excellent even though the place was packed due to the amount of people for restaurant week. The staff was a little frazzled, but pulled off a great evening. Very friendly owners. We will go back! One of favs.
A lovely menu with variety of texture, color and flavors.A lovely dining experience with attentive wait-staff and talented support staff. A nice dining experience.
Our dinner was lovely. The fried Chicken was to die for. The Fennel Orange bread was homemade and incredible as well as the boursin biscuit served with the chicken. As we spoke to other diners we learned that is owned by a mother/father and son. Everyone we spoke to had been coming there for years. They have a loyal following which makes me think that the quality does not change.
It was an all round great evening. We may start becoming regulars ourselves. I highly recommend.
The setting and lighting is very well done and the service was good, I like the team service it reminds me of how good service used to be in nice places. The food was well presented and nice and warm, however the dish I had was very bland, no flavor hardly at all, the Marsala sauce was very thin and barley an taste, the veal was think and not browned at all. Not a real veal Marsala by any means, the mashed potatoes were brown and the vegetables overcooked for my liking, my day would of enjoyed then that soft. My partners meal was better, the trout was cooked well and tasted good but they could pull the skin and add a sauce to make it really good. The wine list was good and the pours were very good, I would try it again because much of the experience was enjoyable and we had a great table, and the bananas fosters looked wonderful even though we did not have any.
We were having my birthday dinner with friends. There were four of us. We thoroughly enjoyed our food and our waitress (cute with little ponytails on sides of her head) was delightful and so helpful. wish I could remember her name.
I would tell you to get your roof fixed. We had to move our table because water was dripping on my husband's head. Sort of hilarious at a fine dining restaurant. But all was good once the table was out of the way of the drip.
We are pretty easy going, but some folks might get offended with the drip at a fine dining establishment. Just saying ....
Great food selection, love the Ambiance! Loved the Live music , Spanish guitar! I have been there at least four times in the last two months. I recommend your restaurant to everyone! Thank you!
We ate at Dinner for Two on Valentine's evening and had an enjoyable dinner, albeit somewhat disappointed that the restaurant only offered a rather pricey fixed menu that included a somewhat limited choice of appetizers, main courses, and desserts. I guess that I should have anticipated this, but was disappointed not to have been able to order from a more extensive menu that would have offered greater choices without having to pay for desserts that we generally do not eat. The food was well prepared and very good. I will return to this restaurant on evenings where I can order from the menu rather than a fixed holiday menu.
We love this place. The staff are very friendly and wanting to make sure your dinning experience is a great one. And the food is awesome.
Two thumbs up! Dinner is always above average at Dinner For Two. The dining is mostly quiet, with lights on the dimmer side, it can be romantic if that is the occasion. Highly recommended by all I know whom have been there. The wine list is a little pricey though. Enjoy!
We love coming to Dinner for two. The food is always prepare with an artistic flare. On Valentines day they had a pre fix dinner, we had the filet , mash potatoes, brussel sprouts. The chef prepare a special desert for the day two layer chocolate cake both bottom and top in shape of hearts . Thank you
Excellent food, first rate. Our waiter didn't seem to be as attentive as the others and we waited with no greeting upon entering. But definitely worth the trip. Yum!
I saw this restaurant on line and was excited about the menus and so made a reservation. When I arrived however they only had a three course dinner option since it was valantines day. Of course none of the things I wanted to try were on the menu. So the chateaubriand and bananas foster was not going to happen. The food they had however was very good so I was not to disappointed.
Great food, except for the cherry jubilee flambé experience! The dessert was amazing except the exploding fire going on all of the time was VERY DANGEROUS in such a small space and unnerving!
Excellent ambiance and wonderful food. Great coconut shrimp, fantastic glaze on the Filet and fun cherries flambé . Wine was a bit pricy, but overall good value.
The food was excellent from lobster bisque soup to steak, salmon and margarita’s!
Had the Sunday dinner. Both of us had beef (with a little up charge) that was perfectly done. Be sure to try the Key Lime Pie!
We found the Sunday special meals to be priced very well though the total experience was rather bland. The crab stuffed trout was flavorless served without a much needed sauce. The strip steak was tasty but all the sides were served cool to the touch. However the table side Caesar salad dressing was outstanding, too bad the lettuce was pedestrian and slightly brown. Dessert We chose the cherry pie and the apple pie. The dough was not good and tasted slightly bitter like the flour was stale. We would like like to try the regular menu and the Chateaubriand. Perhaps it will be a better experience.
Wonderful....can't wait to go back....must have the mushroom soup again... hidden gem in Santa Fe....
This is one of our favorite places to eat in Santa Fe & we were not disappointed. We shared the Lobster Bisque and it was very good. We then ordered Chateaubriand for Two & the flavors were excellent especially accompanied with a bottle of wine. For dessert we share the Banana's Foster & it was delightful as well. We were not rushed through our meal and enjoyed sharing a special night in Santa Fe. Our waitress was attentive & very professional.
Had both the Caesar Salad and Chateaubriand made tableside. Young man did a good job making both. Waitress was quite a bit slow, but she also had a number of tables. Still, she could have been a little quicker, especially delivering the bill. Ordered a particular $30 bottle of wine that we like, but they were out of stock. Waitress offered a $45 (of course!) bottle instead. Gilbert on guitar is always enjoyable for background music. Wish more patrons listened more than talked.
Food did not merit the price.
Cozy and unassuming atmosphere with excellent service. The food was very good. Would highly recommend the lobster bisque. Caesar salad is prepared at the table. My wife and I had two separate chicken dishes and they were tasty and nicely presented. Banana Foster was a fun way to end the meal. Look forward to going back.
Simply put: curt welcome upon arrival, service extremely slow, raw vegetables that were to have been cooked, portion not as advertised (I ordered a 10 ounce ribeye and it might have been 7 ounces) cold potatoes and steak not sizzling. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone! There are many restaurants in Santa Fe that you should try.
Loved it....a very memorable meal. Only suggestions...entrance area and bar very uninviting. Wine glasses not special...should have thin rim. Loved the Nambe flatwear. Bread was to die for. Andrew our waiter was superb.
My wife and I chose this restaurant because it was our anniversary and it was billed as being romantic. Also, the menu was to our taste.
We did find the restaurant to be "romantic." There was quiet music and the sound level was low. The lighting was at a suitable level.
Our waitress was young, attractive with a very nice smile. Her service was excellent throughout the evening.
The food, however, was disappointing.
For appetizers we ordered the crab cakes and coconut shrimp. The two crab cakes were silver dollar sized and unremarkable. The three shrimp were better but my wife and I had to finish cleaning them before we could eat them. Both dishes came with the same remoulade sauce.
I ordered the lobster bisque which was suppose to come with a sherry garnish, but came with creme fraiche instead. It was tasty but would have benefited greatly from the Sherry.
My wife ordered the sunchoke salad which she liked.
My New York steak was cooked to my specifications, though the cut was kind of thin. My wife liked her 7 oz filet. My steak came with both mashed potatoes and string potatoes. They were good, especially the string potatoes, but I would have liked less starch and something green on the plate.
The bananas foster prepared at the table was very good and was probably the best part of the meal, in my opinion.
We learned during the dinner that the restaurant was short three people that evening, so perhaps that had something to do with what I felt were the "deficiencies." But I did feel that none of the food was "surprising." It was generally good but not memorable.
