Ok not as wonderful as I remember from several years ago.
Great evening - ambiance, service and food!
The ironic and off putting moment was when I wanted to ensure there was no cheese on my dishes as some restaurants add cheese to seafood dishes anyway, the waiter impatiently replied in a condescending manner that they don’t, and Compound is not any other restaurant. Earlier he also repeatedly stopped me from wanting to leave out sweetbreads from the foie gras dish as it would ruin the experience.
Normally I’d appreciate that kind of input, but his preachy and snobbish tone actually ruined the experience. In hind sight, I should have just stood up and left.
I observed other servers are demonstrating the service standards consistent with such a fine dining establishment. Guess I was just unlucky.
Great food, great waiter and wonderful atmosphere!
They've done a great job of maintaining a comfortable and intimate dining experience with outstanding food, even in these weird times of COVID. I look forward to going back once the pandemic is over and being able to enjoy another delicious meal.
I love The Compound! It’s by far one of my favorite restaurants. The food and their service are beyond compare. I’m always so thrilled to dine there!
Awesome old fashioned and onion rings.
This was a celebration lunch of my 15th work anniversary. It was truly a blessing to have such a wonderful gift! The Lobster Salad was divine and the chocolate torte was nothing less than incredible! Our server was outstanding -- She was attentive, friendly and so delightfully descriptive with the menu offerings!
I am from Houston visiting family. My favorite place to dine in Santa Fe!
It was our first time to dine here and we enjoyed it very much. I was a bit taken aback when our server told us that they were closing early and we needed to place our entire order. We ended up ordering lots of food and drinks and spent a substantial amount of money. I would have thought that during these challenging times it would have made more sense to let us relax and take our time but we sort of feel like we were on a timer. The posted hours for Sunday were 6-9 but the server told us us the Chef was closing at 8. There were other people there so I don’t understand the mentality there. Otherwise, everything was really good and we plan to come back next time we’re here.
I was disappointed where we were seated. A family of three adults were seated in our area. They were loud in speaking foul language. We went to enjoy a quiet nice dinner, but unfortunately we did not. The waitress apologized to us, but as we were leaving she called over the manager who was aware of the situation but he really had nothing to say. I think if he knew he should have addressed the mannerisms to the disruptive family.
Outstanding! We celebrated our 35th anniversary with lunch here. Lobster salad and champagne. Perfect in every way!
Unbelievable service, quality of the food is outstanding
The Compound is wonderful in every imaginable way. And the burger off the Bar menu is my absolute favorite anywhere.
Great food and service
We had a fabulous time -great food and the service was great-we we’re outside , good air and heat - great service
I had the chicken. Imagine every incredible smell of Santa Fe infused into a meal
I have eaten here countless times. Always perfect
Great meal, excellent wine. Covid 19 is my least favorite virus.
Lovely setting, attentive service, delicious food
Always one of my favorite places. Returning next week
Only complaint: ordered 2 bottles of a particular wine: only 1 left in the cellar.
Ordered the 2nd on the recommendation of the sommelier - just did not match up to the 1st - oh well....
Great dinner with dear friends.
We had another terrific meal at The Compound. The lamb shank was especially good. Their sommelier, Kristina, does an amazing job pairing wine to our meals. Thank you for another great evening.
Great as usual The outdoor courtyard was just lovely at lunchtime
Had my birthday dinner here and couldn't have asked for anything better. The service was amazing and everyone was so nice and made it special. A must try in Santa Fe!
My wife and I chose The Compound for our anniversary dinner after reading reviews and talking with some locals about the best place for a fantastic dining experience. We were completely satisfied with the broad choices on the menu, the extensive wine list, and the service. Our waiter Armando was extremely attentive, and gave us menu item reviews, along with advice and recommendations on the wine to pair with our 1st and second courses. The desert was just as nice, with special attention to it being our anniversary. This is a place I will ALWAYS dine, when we return to Santa Fe.
Food and service were great. Reservation made for in restaurant dining, but put on covered patio. Seating was not as comfortable and as temperature dropped it was not comfortable because heater closest to us was shut down because another guest seated before we arrives said she was too hot. They did not turn the heater back on when we requested it.
food was outstanding, good wine
service was outstanding
Outside with no heaters made a brisk evening meal. food was good but pork chop was overcooked. Service was good, although we waited a long time for the main course. Mark up on wine is high. It’s a nice restaurant, always has been one of my favorites but it’s nothing extraordinary.
An incredible experience! I've been here before but this night was date night on the patio for my husband and I. We were thrilled with the cozy, beautiful seating on the back patio, right at sunset. Everyone we encountered was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and wonderfully easy to talk to. As always, Chef Kiffin created an impeccable menu, filled with decadent delights. We loved each course, each drink, and every minute. Highly recommend - best dinner I've had in months! Gorgeous setting!
Always delicious and a beautiful night outside. Our server was superb too!!
Great staff and service. Hard working people. Wait staff was excellent.
Overall not bad. Portions to price point, Portions down and price up compared to other restaurants. Server asked if we wanted a side then forgot it all together. Not gluten free friendly, big let down as one of us has celiac!!! Not a preference as suggested when ordering. What's up with no special. Last thing, table set after was served first. But it the little things like running out of water in my glass, no follow up (how is it) and forgetting items recommendation that ruined our experience.
Very friendly staff always asking if we needed anything. The food was simply amazing, great wine and drink selection.
The most beautiful place for a Fall lunch in SF.. Kudos to Mark Kiffin andstaff
Even though we had reservations we were shunted into a very undesirable table. Most tables were kept aside for favorite guests.
Would not return ..Beautiful setting..Decent food ,excellent desserts ..Poor group wait staff...
Outdoor space was welcoming and pretty. Recommend the foie gras and lobster bucatini. Bonus they have their own parking lot so you don’t have to hunt for parking!
Delicious food, beautiful outdoor patio dining in autumn.
