The Compound Restaurant is a cornerstone of the culinary landscape in Santa Fe renowned for its distinctive style and elegance, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2016. Owned and operated by Chef Mark Kiffin, winner of the James Beard award for Best Chef of the Southwest 2005, celebrated his 20th anniversary of ownership in 2020. Chef Kiffin’s seasonally Contemporary American menu focuses on Mediterranean influences highlighting available regional ingredients and local sourcing making the restaurant truly farm to table. Such seasonal menus offer hearty braised dishes like Osso Buco with pear in the fall and winter while in spring and summer feature fresh local vegetables such as ripe heirloom tomatoes and peaches along with naturally raised organic lamb and duck. The New York Times, Gourmet magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and Wine Spectator have all selected the Compound as Santa Fe's favorite. Equally impressive are the wine program, cozy bar, and attentive staff.

                                      This restaurant never fails to exceed our expectations! I started with the tuna tartare and then had the pork chops. Both were outstanding! The service is always over the top. They seem to anticipate your needs!

                                      Food was well prepared and nicely presented. Server seemed to have too many tables. We had dined at Geronimo's the evening before our night The Compound and service was better at Geronimo's. You will not go wrong at either place.

                                      Halibut ceviche, rack of lamb, lobster pasta, passion fruit ice cream were all delicious. Sat on the back patio and evening was super. Quiet enough you can actually have a conversation. Friendly and prompt service. Only complaint is lack of moderate priced Cabernets.

                                      This is a very special restaurant. We dined outside and the ambiance was pleasant, quiet and green. The wine list is extensive, and I was able to zero in on one of our favorites, a light and delicious Muscadet, which went will my shrimp pasta and my companion's lobster tails, both of which were top notch. My shrimp dish was wonderfully complex. Our waiter had a lot of ground to cover, but had help, and though he was a bit forgetful, he was very friendly. Noting that it was our anniversary, he brought us two glasses of NM sparkling wine, and decorated our dessert. It was all lovely, but be warned--this is fine dining, with a price tag that goes along with that. That said, it's the place for a special occasion.

                                      Price your Martini's as Martini's. It is an INSULT to me to be charged extra for a Bombay Martini. It stinks and I am telling everyone I know about this. Just charge a price you need. Don't blame the price on the customer.

                                      We had a lovely birthday lunch yesterday. The setting was great, the service outstanding. I ordered the lobster salad. It was fresh and delicious, but the serving was about a small handful of lobster meat. For $30... I was very disappointed. The salad came with tangerines, and there were three pieces. That was crazy!

                                      Happy birthday! We are happy to hear you had a lovely lunch with outstanding service! Sadly, current national inflation has severely affected the cost of food, especially specialty items such as lobster which have always fluctuated with market pricing. Please keep in mind, in addition to higher food costs restaurants are also being charged by vendors for extra fuel, delivery, and freight charges due to sky rocketing gas prices. Which means, dinning out is just going to be more expensive.

                                      I really wanted to like this restaurant. Service - both food and wine - was excellent. The food, however, was a mixed bag. The Hog Island oysters were very fresh but too large, though the accompanying mignonette was excellent. The sweetbreads were not cleaned properly - there was gristle which should have been removed, and they were slightly undercooked. The foie gras sauce with them was good. My lamb was extremely rare and quite fatty. My sister had the lobster tails and my husband the mushrooms and polenta - both liked their entrees. The lemon cake with the Sauternes recommended by our waitress was excellent.

                                      First time there. All the workers were friendly, polite and courteous. The food was great and reasonably priced in my opinion. The reason for 4 stars is the price of the margaritas we had. It was definitely one of the better margaritas I’ve had in Santa Fe but also the most expensive one I’ve had in Santa Fe. Bottom line is that I will go back and highly recommend this restaurant.

                                      The bread was excellent. My husband's duck was, according to him, excellent. My tuna tartar was okay but came with sweet, thick bread that was completely incompatible w/tuna!!! The rice croquet that came with the duck was tasteless. My husband doesn't like beets so he asked for a different side dish w/the duck. We were told "The chef doesn't like to change his menu." But he acquiesced and let my husband have mushrooms instead, for an additional $5.00. The blueberry struesel had too much cream cheese and not enough blueberries. But the marscapone ice cream that accompanied it was delicious. The chef is a prima donna.

                                      Overall the experience was wonderful, but the 'lettuce and tomato salad' had only two very small tomatoes, and the complementary foccacia was without any flavor at all. No herbs, no salt, and the butter also was plain so the entire experience of the foccacia was...poor. No salt on the table for that matter. The main courses were exceptional in flavor and presentation, and moderately sized. The polenta and wild mushroom was particularly well done! We initially had a problem with our seating, as there was a sick child at the next table, but we were accomodated immediately when we requested another table. Perhaps during this new covid surge restaurants can return to taking guests temperatures before seating,

                                      We had a lovely, albeit a little breezy lunch yesterday. First time I sat on the side patio. A little noisy due to the mechanicals of the restaurant but after a while I forgot about it. My first schnitzel and it was wonderful. Husband's pastrami was amazing. Lovely glass of rose and a beer with the pastrami were perfect. Shared a little budding to end it. Our server was very professional and I wish I had caught his name.

                                      This restaurant received very good reviews so we tried it for my husband’s birthday while in SF. We found the atmosphere at our outside table lovely and servers cordial, however, we felt the menu presented during our visit uninspired and the level of service was hit/miss throughout the meal.

                                      Mother’s Day is an important day and having lunch at the Compound reinforced it. It was a perfect day for dining outdoors.

                                      The Compound is my very favorite and Sunday for Mother’s Day was exceptional as always! We sat on the porch and the ambience was lovely. Thank you for another great experience!

                                      I booked a reservation 5 weeks in advance for a wedding anniversary dinner. I think we were seated at the smallest most rickety table in the restaurant with one side being booth seating and the other an open chair. You couldn’t cut your steak without sloshing drinks on the table. My wife didn’t get a steak knife. My wife said her meal was good, but I’d call mine average. We’ve been dining at the compound for over 11 years now, but last nights experience was below average. The wait staff was very good/attentive and congratulated us on our anniversary, but the table was terrible.
