We live locally and we have been to MS 5 times. It is our favorite restaurant. Chef has a wonderful touch in maximizing the flavor of the base food and the seasoning. The beef is the best in Santa Fe and the other mains are equally well prepared. Service is personable and professional.

Restaurant staff are excellent. Food was prepared with great care. If you can, leave room for desert. You have to try the Bread Pudding. It is the best I’ve ever had. Very cozy and warm.

The restaurant was empty except for one other table. The wait staff appeared to be relatively new to their jobs. The food was a mixed bag. Do not order the onion rings which are heavily breaded. The grilled octopus was good but the portion was small and the dish was about half filled with chips. My steak was good and the mushroom side dish was excellent.My companion had the duck which she said was outstanding. The music in the restaurant was typical hotel music and detracted from the experience.

This meal was extraordinary! There was not any course that disappointed. We were three and between us had the green chile corn chowder, the roasted marrow, the halibut, the filet, the cowboy rib eye, the green chile risotto, the truffle fries, the creme brulee, and the bourbon bread pudding (enough for a small village). We brought good size portions home to enjoy tomorrow. This was an expensive meal but well worth it for an anniversary celebration. Definitely will return!

Market Steer Steakhouse is a welcome addition to the Santa Fe dining scene. Our steaks were excellent tender piece of meat, each cooked completely correctly to order. Our wait staff was as helpful and as pleasant as could be.

The restaurant is in an elegant hotel dining room, which unfortunately, has had both good and bad restaurants over the years. I worry that the uneven reputation of the space from the past will discourage diners for this fine new place. It was not very busy on a Friday night.

But for those who desire a perfectly cooked juicy and tender steak, this is the place to go.

I have had a lot of ribeyes in my life, and this was probably the best one I’ve ever had. It was magnificent. Highly recommend if you like a good bone-in ribeye. The bread pudding was also delicious. So glad they opened this place and hope they stay in Santa Fe.

The food is excellent. The wine list is much improved since my last visit. They have some decent half-bottles which is much appreciated for us single diners. The single malt scotch pour is one third what it should be. A few hitches with the service, which were quickly corrected. With a little fine tuning, this place will become a first tier Santa Fe gem.

Delicious food, friendly and attentive service. Bone marrow appetizer was heavenly. Side portions are very generous, each large enough for 3-4 people which makes it a bit tricky for a party of two to not over-order. Meat was cooked to perfection. Like the a la cartel menu but $4 for “enhancements” to meat is a bit much.

The food was simply not good. The Cesar salad was tasteless, the onion rings tasted like they came from a freezer package. The creamed spinach was the strangest I’ve ever had. It tasted & looked like it had cream gravy on it. The steak was ok but overcooked & had no flavor. I had been so looking forward to a new steakhouse but was majorly disappointed. Definitely would not recommend.

You have a lovely restaurant but you need to address the sound problem. Very loud. Too loud. Everything else is very good but if you don't do something about the noise people won't continue to come.
We live in Santa Fe and it would great to eat there once a week. The food Is that good.

My husband’s steak and truffle fries were good. The server was extremely accommodating by offering the hatch chili risotto as a side to my entree as a replacement as I need to eat gluten free. The table side s’mores were fun and excellent. The restaurant fell short on their fish dishes both the tuna tartare which was non-descript and the snapper which was not as fresh as it should be. The deal breaker for us as to not recommend was the super fishy smell that was in the front of the restaurant when we were leaving from a dish that had just been served.

We will return to Market Steer, likely with some frequency since we are Santa Fe locals. We were in a rush, as we were going to a concert, and our wonderful server was very attuned to that fact and smoothed things along. When we go again, we will savor the experience. The food is excellent, the ambience comfortable and casual but with some degree of elegance, and the service was impeccable.

This was our first time and we went with 2 other couples to celebrate a birthday. We had a great meal! It wa so good from the bread and green infused chile butter to the excellent steaks and my halibut was perfect. The flavors were outstanding. The shared sides were fantastic. They brought a creme brûlée with a candle for the birthday boy. The service was outstanding and the greeting hostess met us with a big smile. We will make this a go to restaurant since we live here. Just as good if not more inventive than The Bull Ring. I read complaints of the plain decor but I found it To be calming. There is a large stone and limestone fireplace and the large windows looking out onto the side streets of Santa Fe made our views nice. They could use some very classic western art in there. But overall it was very cozy and comfortable.

They have some sauces that you can choose with entree. I suggest they have a way to select two or three together at a 6 and 8 dollar price point. That would be more fun

We came into Santa Fe and were staying at the 4 Seasons but I hadn’t made any dinner reservations for us and a couple we travel with. Started looking through one of the tour guides and saw your place , looked at the menu and thought everyone could find something to suit them from your menu. The couple we travel with are a hard sell plus they are both on the keto diet! Two days later they are still telling me how wonderful the food was and what a great choice I made ! My filet was melt the n my mouth good! Dessert was wonderful too. Billy was wonderful! Marie Claire was too! One of the owners came by and we met them and damn but I have forgotten one of the girls waiting on us’ name. She was great! The lad us the type of green chili’s to get to blend in to the butter to made the spread for the hot bread!!!! My friend was in heaven over learning that! Thank y’all for a wonderful start to our trip to Santa Fe! I couldn’t have made a better choice. Can’t tell you how many people at the resort I’ve recommended y’all to since dining with y’all on Friday , October 19. May you all have much continued success with your wonderful restaurant and for having wonderful staff who put up with some slightly inebriated folks in our group! Class act!!! Thank you!

I am a big supporter but there are issues
Food is terrific but on two visits my wonderful prime steak was cooked totally wrong......
The meat was great ..the cooking awful
The dining room is dismal...needs new chandeliers.......some art ....some character.
Please fix these matters..redo the dining room and get the person on the grill to wake up!
Keep bringing in the wonderful prime beef! But grill it right!
I will be back again.....my third visit but please fix the things I’m talking about and you will succeed. If not you won’t

I took my wife for a Major Birthday and were we impressed! Everything from the hostess greeting us (who took a personal interest in the fact we were celebrating a birthday) to the waitress attending us (who was extremely knowledgeable about the food and was very friendly without being overbearing) to the cocktails before dinner were absolutely first rate. Then the dishes came and my wife, who is a gourmet chef in her own right, was bowled over by the exceptional tastes and flavors we had. My wife had the Duck Breast and the sauce served with it was so original. It had smoked egg yolk, which we have never seen elsewhere, and which was superb. I had the halibut and the sauce accompanying it was a variation of succotash with fresh corn. It was totally unexpected and it was outstanding! We'll definitely be going back.

The 6oz. filet was perfectly prepared and so tender you didn't need a knife. The sides were large portions and dicately balnced on the blend of flavors. The service and staff were exceptional.
