The restaurant had the best service and food out of all the places we’ve eaten on this 7th day of our road trip. The server knew what farm the beef came from. His suggestions were on point.

My meal consisted of bone marrow, which I shared with my husband and a Caesar salad split for two.
The vegetables of the day was a blend of mushrooms prepared simply, and served in its own broth.

After dining in to many steakhouses this trip, I was ready for a home made plate of chicken with vegetables. The selection was one perfect dish, half of a breast, wing, and leg. The skin was a golden, smoky hue, and the bird, as tender as the first bite. It rested on a creamy bed of mashed potatoes, decorated with a few strands asparagus. The gravy had a slightly smoky undertone, spicy, but with personality. Every bite, a delight. What was that magic ingredient? The cook.

My husband had a bone-in ribeye that satisfied his meatosaurus appetite.

The wine was divine. My choice was Flowers Chardonnay, pricey but IMO, worth it. Hubs had a chewy red, Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley. It complemented the fatty tenderness of the steak.

We are returning in 3 weeks for another great meal.

Thanks for the great service and wonderful evening.

We chose this restaurant for the steak which was excellent and prepared to our taste. The star for both of us was the mussels appetizer. So delicious and the chili added another flavor level to a great wine broth. The roasted mushroom side had a combo of mushrooms that made it more interesting. The grits were okay.

This was our 2nd post-pandemic dining experience at Market Steer. Both times we went with another couple, each of whom enjoyed their respective evenings. Service is professional and friendly. I started with a perfect wedge salad, nicely dressed with blue cheese and a goodly amount of crumbled bacon and a few sliced cherry tomatoes. Mussels were large, delicious and plentiful, accompanied by superb slices of buttered garlic bread. (The bread that's brought for the whole table, is different and equally noteworthy.) The large portion of hand cut fries were gobbled up by all of us. The NY Strip with peppercorn demi glace was done to a turn; the grilled asparagus were fine but not special. The halibut,served with fried okra and black-eyed peas was highly praised. The crab cakes were devoured with pleasure, as were the cheese grits. Our friend who ordered the filet mignon with blue cheese butter on the side pronounced it perfect. For dessert we shared the bourbon bread pudding topped with a salty caramel sauce. A fitting finale for a very fine dinner.

Bar and waitstaff weren’t on the same page. Lots of time between drinks and some drinks were wrong. Food was excellent. Service was good but could have been better. Communication was a tad lacking. Really appreciated head chef coming out to see how everyone’s meal was. She takes a lot of pride in her work.

All 4 of us had steaks. They were superbly prepared! Your sides of creamed spinach and risotto was flavorful but on the runny side. The edge and Caesar alads were all delicious.

We always enjoy eating here. The patio is a must. Their go-to for a special occasion is some sparkling white wine. Don’t expect dessert or anything to celebrate like that.

Just a wonderful fine dining establishment in Sant Fe. Excellent steaks, interesting small dishes, great drinks and great service.

They know they are a high end restaurant and want their patrons to feel like it's a special evening.

They also are excellent in dealing with food allergies.

An truly, truly outstanding steak (highly recommend the filet) and great ambiance in downtown Santa Fe. Wine list is a bit over priced as more items than I'm used to seeing are 3x retail. Outstanding service and perfect for a date night.

Best steak in town. Ate out on the patio which was very comfortable with the space heaters and very quiet. Excellent service. The one complaint, which we used to have, was the delay in receiving drinks from the bar. That has been cured.

Very pleasantly surprised to see bone marrow on the menu! And in a beautiful presentation.
The topping was excellent, but overpowered the marrow. I would use that wonderful sauce on chicken or pork.
Halibut excellent
Roast chicken excellent.
We avoided the lamb ribs and pasta/meatballs because the spices accompanying the meat dishes do not appeal to us, although we are food adventurists.
All staff was excellent. Good presentation and explanation of menu items.

We had seen the reviews for Market Steer Steakhouse and thought we would give it a try. We were not disappointed! Everyone was so friendly and attentive. Our waiter was very helpful and was spot-on with his recommendations. And the food..where do I start? Everything was SO delicious; we wish we had room for more! Oh, well, guess we'll just have to go back then next time we're in town!

This is a truly great restaurant. The team and the food are top notch. So we'll executed, without pretense, and it's clear they know what they're doing. If you had one evening in Santa Fe, and want a really great dinner out, this is the one.

We will be back! The food and service was top notch! The prices are typical of high end steakhouses. The filet was one of the best I’ve ever had and the sauce flight just put it over the top! Save a little room for dessert, too, the bread pudding was delicious!

Our anniversary dinner last Friday was wonderful--our steaks were cooked the way we liked them and the sauces we chose enhanced their flavor. We loved the roasted mushrooms and the truffle-dusted french fries. The wait staff were attentive and so helpful without being intrusive. The only negative to our experience was the noise level, which was exuberant. Yes, we will be back but we'll choose an outdoor table, weather permitting.

This is now our favorite restaurant in NM and one of our top 10 restaurants in the country. We have lived in NM for more than 20 years and are 'foodies' that love to try new restaurants. We are disappointed we did not discover this gem until now. I have lived in Nebraska and Texas and consider this steak to be as good or better than any I have ever eaten -- that should tell you everything. Quality of food, beautiful Santa Fe setting, and top-notch personalized service (thank you Dwight) made for a memorable birthday celebration. And meeting the owner/chef was a nice touch. Definitely the bread pudding was the best 'birthday cake' I have ever had. Thanks so much for a wonderful evening.

So incredible, the crab cakes were some of the best I’d had and the steak was absolutely perfect. Enjoyed 2 glasses of the Zinfandel and regret I didn’t leave enough room for dessert! Had to settle for Chocolate Hazelnut gelato which was unbelievable, would have had two scoops of I’d planned better! 100% recommend this place.
