Steaks were excellent, but the presentation was stark... on a huge white plate with some roasted garlic.
Food server seemed overwhelmed and never asked if we needed/wanted anything else.

Food and service were very good. The mussels appetizer was the highlight of dinner. I ordered a Maker's Manhattan that came on the rocks and was not very good. Overall we had a very good experience. We will likely be back for the mussels and to try something different from the bar.

The food was good, but not as good as their prices suggested. Would i come back? Yes, simply because of the staff. The staff made the experience enjoyable. If you look at the prices as paying for the experience, it is definitely worth it.

Attention needed to bringing sides out at same time as meat otherwise by the time you get sides, meat is growing cold. This was early in night, but perhaps the vibrant bar business was pulling from dining room service. When you are paying $100 a head, the restaurant needs to get it right every time! There is no room for error.

Disappointing. The owner/manager insisted the steak was “medium” because the grade was “prime”, this after re-cooking. (Please see attached photos if this function works.) Having dined in some of NYC and Chicago’s best steakhouses, I respectfully disagree. Re-fried next day for lunch but didn’t salvage the loss. Also, sides are too big for two, would work for four diners. Hope your experience is better.

Food was amazing, and the service was perfect. Billy was our service, and is, no doubt, the best server in Santa Fe. Kristine (general manager) checked several times to make sure dinner was going well. The bourbon bread pudding may be the best we’ve ever had.

Market Steer Steakhouse was amazing!! From the moment we made our reservation to the moment we finished our dessert. The chef and owners were very attentive and the servers were very efficient. The menu options, the menu itself, the way the table was set, the food style, the healthy portions, and the beautiful room and view. We loved every bite and will eat there again and again when returning to Santa Fe!! Way to go Chef Kat!

We have now been to this restaurant on four occasions. Food always very good. But twice we have been confronted by very large parties which dominate the space and noise level. Could really use a private room for such groups.

We found the service to be unexperienced. They needed constant reminders. Food was overly salted. Salad greens contained dirt and so the salad was not edible. Found the total experience to be over priced for the quality of food served. Would never go back.

We had a terrible table. We were the first party of four to arrive, and they gave us a round table made for six people. Other parties of four arrived after us, and were given excellent tables. Why? When we asked to be reseated we were told the seating was set for the night. They didn’t even give an explanation as to why we couldn’t have one of the many open tables. Also, the noise was deafening. We could hardly hear the other people at our table.

This restaurant has the best steak in town, and serves some of the best steak I've ever eaten. And, it's not just the steak that is so excellent, but the salads, soups, and appetizers are also exceptionally good. We've eaten here twice now and we've left with the same opinion each time.

This was the best restaurant we ate at while in Santa Fe, we were there for 6 nights-

Billy was the best waiter I’ve ever had, great guy-

I’m not a drinker, so I asked Billy for a suggestion, he said I’d like the La Prima Verde...he was right, so green and refreshing-Previous night at El Meson the drink tasted like I had been poisoned, it was horrid, so I was brave to trust Billy, but worth it-

We split the Butter Salad, excellent flavors, citrus goat cheese to the ancho chili buttermilk dressing-

I had the scallops with the corn risotto for my entree, every bite was amazing-My boyfriend had the 8oz filet, he had ordered a side of the horseradish caramel sauce but the filet was so good he didn’t use it-

We also split the chocolate brûlée, tasted like brownie batter, very good-

We will be back in Santa Fe in August and I’ll make sure we eat there twice-

Bottom line- We made the most of a lackluster experience. The reason for the low rating was the fact that there was a required Prix Fixe menu at $95 a person. My father has dietary restrictions which severely limited his options. We were not aware of the requirement at booking, which would have influenced my decision to make reservations here. It was a lovely time with the family, but $95 each is faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar overpriced for the meal. Please open the menu up or lower the price.

I had the lamb and it was cooked perfect ,my partner had NY Strip and it too was fabulous. Wedge salad was also quite nice. Bread and butter were so good I had a hard time not eating it all. The space that the restaurant occupies feels a bit empty, I hoped for something more romantic. There was large group seated in the middle in the room that filled the space with noise , fortunately they were finishing up and left within 15 mins. We ended up finishing our dinner after the closing hour therefore had bussers sweeping all around us, which made us feel rushed. The staff was friendly and we had an overall good experience. Its a new restraunt and deserves a chance to work out a few kinks.

As the name suggests, this place has great steak. Ordered Rare NY Strip and it was evenly cooked through the length of the cut.
The sides are largely portioned....almost too large. I tend to worry where the restaurant is cutting to give out such large portions, but the green chile risotto was nicely spiced and prepared well. The mushrooms were a mix of all varieties. If you aren't adventurous with mushrooms I would steer away from the mushrooms as the variety mixed from shitake to oyster to bella.
We were given complimentary prosecco because it was a birthday, this was a nice touch and greatly appreciated.
The service was kind of mixed as well, the host would ask if needed something and said she would attend to it and then nearly half a minute later the server would also come over and as the same question. Perhaps it was a busy evening but the redundancy in service was little off, but better the be over served then under.
Over all would highly recommend for the steak and perhaps family style with the sides.
Pro Tip: Ask to sit at the tables....the booth we sat in was really worn and sunk deeply when you sat in it.
