My wife and I had two wonderful meals at Compound during our recent trip to Santa Fe. The restaurant was recommended to us and we in turn certainly will recommend it to people who we know will be visiting the city. The service was excellent and friendly, the food was delicious, and the presentation was creative!! We enjoyed sitting in the patio area/garden area. The owner came by our table and we had a very nice visit with him.

The Compound is one of our Santa Fe favorites. The food is superb and the cocktails are so very well done. We sat outside on the patio, as the weather is warming and we had a nice exchange with the table next to us. Service is impeccable. We LOVE this place.

Wonderful service both Maitre d' and table server. I had the summer pea soup, gnochi and special Montana morels - all quite good. Save room for dessert. They employ a pastry chef and the desserts are really creative, wonderful ice creams and ganaches with unique flavors.

First, we arrived for the Mother's Day Brunch, and the table we were seated at was so fantastic for our group. Second and most pleasant were the wait staff assigned to our group (Chris and Andrew - and I usually don't remember names) were so on the spot. Not a cup went dry, and the knowledge that Chris had of the menu was amazing. Chris had an answer and suggestions with pairing, for all of our questions, and didn't have to go ask if we could alter the menu to fit our taste. Instead, he would just say "Yes, I can get that for you, how about a little of this or that to top it off - it would go great with what you ordered." We will be back time and time again. Thank you Chris and Andrew and everyone that made our Mother's Day visit most memorable.

For the price, everything should have been exceptional. Unfortunately the duck was over cooked and room temp, and the bar did not know how to prepare a common drink.

Love The Compound, the service is generally impeccable. unfortunately although our server was very nice, he forgot 2 of the items we ordered. I understand the idea behind not writing down the order but all too often it effects the accuracy of the order.
Other than that it was lovely as usual.

Delightful dinner. If you enjoy pork tenderloin their’s is a best blend of taste and tender. Save a bit of room for their coconut custard dessert. Service is A+. Simple decor. Expect to pay $200+ for couples dinner with wine.

We treated ourselves to dinner at the Compound and it did not disappoint. The food was exquisite, and the service attentive without being intrusive. We were able to have a dinner conversation without shouting and enjoy a wonderful meal without being rushed. Such a treat to get VIP treatment without being VIPs!

Still one of the best meals in Santa Fe. Our waiter was a bit of a character, in a positive way. The morels we had this night were one of the best dishes I have ever had at the Compound.

We had the seared sea bass - actually it seemed to be prepared sur vide and seared at the end. An excellent addition to the menu - and actually better than the salmon dish that was on the winter menu. Recommended!

We had our last meal at The Compound on a recent trip to Santa Fe. The ambiance is elegant and comfortable. The menu is creative and uses fresh, seasonal ingredients. After a week of eating Southwestern cuisine, we enjoyed having a meal that was more about accentuating seasonal ingredients than local tradition. The pace of the meal was not rushed and service was excellent.
