I had an awesome Bombay Gin martini with dinner. The crab cake appetizers were fantastic, and the Filet Oscar is to die for!!! Finished it off with a warmed glass of Cognac and a cup of coffee. Yes, it cost me, but is worth every penny!!!!

Very disappointed. We were so looking forward to enjoying the table side Caesar Salad again. So little dressing on the salad we basically ate plain lettuce. The “croutons” were a joke. A slice of bread in a pan with no toast or flavor to it. As if just sliced off loaf. Sat with our food in front of us without proper utensils to eat. Trout was very good. Mussels were ok but again served with bread without a toast to it.

We dined with one other couple. Service was excellent, as were the cocktails and wine. Each one of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals (the steak was amazing!) and finished it up with coffee and carrot cake. We look forward to a return visit.

Not as good as the last time we ate there. I think juggling inside service, outside service + takeout is problematic. Have had excellent meals in the past but will try again when they are doing only inside dining.

The food was hit or miss. The Beef Stroganoff was very bland. The Caesar salad made table side was quite good. We waited almost half an hour for our bananas foster so we left before it came out. Overall, it'd still recommend the restaurant it really depends on what you order.

We were visiting Santa Fe and stumbled across this fine establishment. First off, the happy hour offerings were fantastic! The drinks and the fare for happy hour were unique in their own right. My wife had a drink called “ Unicorn Tears”, which I must say must have been great because she had four of them. Great night for me!. The waiter was at the top of the hospitality game and the personal touch from the owner put it beyond first class service. The food was unbelievable and I’m pretty sure it the only place or at least the best place in Santa Fe to get lobster. My wife said it was Devine... I had the ribeye, which was very delicious and was served perfectly. Bottom line is we will be making a special trip back to Santa Fe just to eat and enjoy the atmosphere of “Dinner for Two”

The experience was very nice but I ordered a steak medium rare but it was cooked medium well. I'm not one to return food if it's edible and the waiter never asked me to cut into the steak. Other than that it was a good dinner for the price.

We had a table on the new patio, tables were spaced very appropriately for current safety concerns. Service was prompt and attentive, and the food was amazing! The owner was there and conversed with us and other tables and made sure everything was to our liking. Definitely go for the prime rib special sometime or just an elegant dinner date anytime.

A thoroughly enjoyable evening. From the wine selection through desert I could not think of a better way to celebrate my birthday. We went all out and ordered all three tableside preparations and strongly advise you do the same.

The place needs updating. The open kitchen gives it a chaotic feel. The staff seemed to be short handed. We thought the food was good but nothing to write home about. I think it’s more for locals that don’t cook that are looking for a meal, not for tourist looking for really good food, drinks and ambiance.

Food was delicious. I had the 10 oz Steak with Blue Cheese Cumbles and the most delicious shoestring truffle fries on top of the steak. My husband enjoyed the lamb chops. Each dish came with mashed potatoes and sauteed vegetables. Banana Fosters table side is a MUST!! Our waitress Elena was on par, very friendly and attentive and made great recommendations.

My wife and I are from Edmond, Oklahoma and traveled to Santa Fe to celebrate our 26th Wedding Anniversary. I picked Dinner for Two for our special occasion and this was, by far, the best dining experience we encountered during our visit to Sanda Fe. The wait staff was excellent. We ordered the Caesar Salad and Chateaubriand for two. Both prepared at our table. The Caesar Salad was excellent and the Entree, the Chateaubriand, was out of this world. It was cooked to perfection, very delicious, and melted in your mouth. The Margaritas were very good too. We walked away very happy that we picked such an excellent establishment and couldn't be happier with our experience. Even though price was not a consideration, I must add that their prices are very reasonable. Thank you to the owner and wait staff for making our special occasion so enjoyable.

I attended during restaurant week and got the Pork Tacos and NY Strip Steak. Both were excellent. The pork was tender and flavorful. The steak was also delicious, with a crisp seared crusting around the outside, and a flavorful and juicy inside. Served on top of a bed of sautéed vegetables with a side of mashed potatoes and covered with crispy shoestring french fries, the main entrée was presented in an elegant but still casual manner, and with a satisfying portion size.

The "Paradise Lost" home-made banana liquor that was served at the time was unique and tasty, and there were other cocktails on the menu that looked interesting as well.

The staff was friendly and accommodating, and struck a good balance between checking in and not intruding during the meal.

Our server was amazing, she had a very welcoming smile. She was attentive and pleasant. I made the poor choice to order the NY strip steak, it had a lot of nerves that I kept discreetly removing from my mouth. I should've ordered the filet mignon as my mom did. Overall, our dining experience was great. We will be returning soon.

Food was good (maybe excellent), but was overshadowed by the extremely slow service from beginning to end. The problem with service was due to too many early bookings (pre-8 PM) due to SF Restaurant Week.

I would go back on a weeknight, when it's not so busy.

This was a dinner in the "Restaurant Week" in Santa Fe, so the staff was just now gearing up from a slow period. So service while not bad, did not flow that well. The food was absolutely delicious - trout dish moist and crab cakes very flavorful!! Lovely intimate environment for dinner! I certainly do recommend Dinner for Two.
