Exceptionally freshness concept and food for Santa Fe! Every plate from small to large to desert for our party of four were phenomenal and the service spot on. Our waiter was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Marvelous o all counts - you must try Radish and Rye...

Beautiful restaurant with lots of ambiance. We arrived at sunset and the western facing windows had no shades on them (they are on order according to our server), so I was blinded for about 20 minutes until the sun went down. The food was outstanding and the restaurant was very busy for a Tuesday night. I will definitely be coming again for sure!

Awesome food, found the support servers to be more welcoming than our actual server. Didn’t really talk to us, would have preferred a little more conversation - makes the restaurant service feel more personal. Overall the restaurant was really good & the food was incredible.

My wife and I had dinner at the restaurant this past Sunday to celebrate my 40th birthday. We couldn't of had a better experience. Everything was absolutely on point.

Service - First and foremost the service was superb. Adrienne was very attentive and not intrusive at all.

Food - For starters we shared the Sweet Corn Fritters and the Fresh Corn Chowder with the Green Chili and Smoked Bone Marrow. The Sweet Corn Fritters were the perfect combo of sweet, salty, crunchy, and the green goddess dressing just pulled the whole dish together. The Fresh Corn Chowder was a WOW dish. The bone marrow mixed so well with the chowder....yum!
For entree we shared the Grilled Ribeye with the Duck Fat Potatoes and side of the Charred Broccolini.
Adrienne said the chef recommends the ribeye cooked to medium because of the cut and the marbling. We both eat our steaks rare to medium rare so we were a little nervous but we obliged. Great decision as the steak was absolutely phenomenal, the potatoes were delish, and the broccolini was great (perfect amount of char)
Make sure to do yourself a favor and save room for the Bourbon Pecan Pie and add the Peanut Brittle Ice Cream.

Drinks/Wine - The cocktails are worth visiting the restaurant alone. The Barrel Aged Boulevardier was perfectly balance (I had two of them) and the wine list was littered with diamonds. Half Bottle of 2014 Chateau de Beaucastel was an absolute steal.

Thank you for making my birthday dinner so special!!!

I would call Radish and Rye modern cuisine. They offer signature cocktails and vegan options. The food was good. One of their specialties is using duck fat for fingerling potatoes and a house made seasoned popcorn.

Terrific, but not totally amazing, small and large plates. If you're a bourbon drinker you must go: longest list of fine bourbons of any restaurant I've even eaten in. Lovely atmosphere and great service. All made for a lovely dinner. We'd definitely return.

My recommendation would come with qualifications. Very nice bar and good specialty drinks. Attempts at Southern Specialties fell short fried green tomatoes or very hard, reading was tasteless, and pimento cheese did not work. Remoulade sauce would have been much better. Collard greens for side were extremely hot and vinegary, almost unedible. Butcher steak while tasty, was a very small portion. On a recommendation from a friend, we ordered the pecan pie alamode for dessert, without consulting the menu. Turned out to be $16, which I feel is exorbitant for this type of restaurant. Very good service though and we do like this location better than the old one.

The new home of Radish & Rye is beautifully designed, if noisy. We found we had to raise our voices just to be heard across the table. Our first real negative reaction, however, was to the wine list. The markup on wines we're familiar with is unnecessarily high. Furthermore, I saw only two 750ml bottles of cabernet sauvignon under $100. Considering how many good wines there are at a lower price point, this seems like a strange decision. (Caveat: perhaps I missed a page of less expensive bottles?) On the plus side, the wine menu offers many half bottles to choose from. Perhaps our biggest disappointment was the food. With one exception, it was good but nothing special. We tried several small plates and one large salmon dish. The salmon was wonderfully fresh and delicious. The ice cream trio was okay but not awe-inspiring. In summary, my husband and I were underwhelmed by Radish & Rye.

Great food and drinks! However noise level (and music) much too loud for dinner conversation and they need to install blinds on the west side - the setting sun coming in thru the windows made it difficult to see our dinner companions across the table.

We had been to Radish & Rye many times at their older location. WE loved it and took many people there who also loved it. What we really liked about the old location was that it was a romantic, serene, quiet, cozy, peaceful atmosphere. We just went to there new location for the first time and did not enjoy the atmosphere at all and actually spoke to the manager about it. It had hard surfaces, was very noisy , the music was too loud when we first got there, had close tables and the sun coming in the windows was uncomfortable for many. The new place was like any other new restaurant anywhere. I understand they are addressing some of these issues. Really miss the ambiance of their old location. Wish they would have never moved. The food was great as always and we had a very nice waitress. In saying the food and service was good, we don't think we will be returning there soon.

I might recommend to some of my friends kids. Not even close to the outstanding visits and dining experiences at the original location. I was shocked by the Mint Julep we paid $15 for. I even made the waitperson aware of my disappointment. Sitting in the front by the highway is a really bad idea. My husband’s salmon was good as was my entree. Good but not inspired.

The food was excellent and the service was great except when the wait staff tried not to notice that at least half of their customers were squinting and sweating and holding up menus to try and block the sun glaring into our faces. This restaurant needs to invest in window shades immediately! This was not a pleasant dining experience.

Mixed feelings. Food and service were very good; unfortunately, the noise level at the restaurant was exceptionally high (due to both loud music and to acoustics that seemed to amplify voices and other noise). We had fried green tomatoes, a very well-prepared and tasty pork chop, and a butcher steak that was also quite good. A small side dish of chili corn bread was delicious. Service was very good. The downside was being in a very loud restaurant, with loud country music that I'd describe as "urban country". The setting is very modern industrial; kind of urban club-like with a rather odd layout. I must admit I greatly preferred the atmosphere at the restaurant's old location, which was more traditional, and was lively without being overwhelming.

Excellent food pricey but worth it. Very quite and easy to speak with your friends and family. Don’t go unless you plan on spending your money. However needs a steak on the menu that is for everyone. Love the white tablecloths never get rid of them it helps you stand out in a town that is just to casual all the town. The service is the best around. I highly recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed dining at Radish & Rye. Service was excellent, cocktails amazing, and the food was delicious. This certainly one of the top restaurants in Santa Fe. It is expensive, however, and the menu is somewhat limited. But if you like bourbon, this is the place for you..there isn't a better selection elsewhere in the city! Looking forward to returning soon.

Reservation at 5PM, so it was quiet but then later it got lively. Sat on the inside patio and noticed a lack of sunscreens as the sun was going down which made it somewhat warm near the end of our meal. That was really the only negative and if you do not like sun sit further inside. Otherwise it was a good experience

Experience Not Worth the Price---A top tier Santa Fe restaurant it is not, although you would not know that by the excessive menu/bar prices. $17 for a sazerac old fashioned is ridiculous, especially when I ordered the well pour. Which brings me to service, or lack thereof. Our waitress, M, was border-line rude, inattentive and probably incompetent for the job of being the lead contact between restaurant an customer. She brought my fiend a drink and charged us, even though we did not order one. Did not know beer prices and when asked a question responded curtly and with an attitude. Food is good enough but not outstanding in any way other than the potions are extremely small for the price, especially the Butcher steak which is 6 oz or less. Tables are too small for 4; and country music soundtrack is better suited for a western bar.Went for a celebration, and left with frustration. -PS to management: New Mexico law does not prevent BYOB as you advised me when I called to inquire.

Unfortunately we left before ordering our meal due to the fact that we observed poor hygiene by a cook visible from our table. The waitress and owner were very apologetic but we just couldn’t stay based on that. Having said that my Manhattan cocktail was delicious.

What’s so sad is we really wanted to try their food based on the great reviews.

Our waitress was inattentive and rude after we were sat in a section with few other diners. I was really excited about the new location but they need some training!
