    It was great. The only thing that seemed a little strange was they offered bread and sides with the restaurant week menu, however they were not included in the price. The waiter also did not mention they were extra.

    Always a nice dining experience, especially for visitors to Santa Fe. Some locals may enjoy having a menu they know well, others may wish for more specials to be offered.. The waitstaff is always attentive and conscientious. Outdoor seating in the summer is especially enjoyable.

    It was a fantastic meal. Between the two of us, we counted 46 individual preparations that were put together in wonderful ways. Every dish was fantastic. For us, it is a splurge, and when we splurge we want it to be worth it. Cafe Martin was definitely worth it.

    The soup was remarkable! Waiter, Edward, exceptional…very knowledgeable about their wines. My friends had the salmon, steak…both top notch. I made thr mistake do ordering then duck breast - truly bland and NOT up to standards of the rest of the food. Ambience is OK, but not special…needs more warmth!!

    Parking is limited at the restaurant, there is available parking down the street. The staff are very welcoming and the server was very in tune with the menu, features and timing of the meal. I ordered the Caesar salad and filet mignon. The Caesar salad was good, I really enjoyed the presentation of the filet mignon, appealing and very thought out flavors that complimented the beef. Delicious!

    I expected way more for this kind of money on New Year's Eve, not just a standard app and entree without even so much as a glass of champagne. We eat like this all the time, but this felt egregious and underwhelming for the spend.

    What a pleasant surprise! We heard of this eatery from a gentleman we ran into in Albuquerque. The photos online do NOT show how charming and quaint this place is. It is small, cozy and the food and service were so very good! Emilio, our waiter, was charming and attentive as were the rest of the staff. The woman who greeted us we later found out was the chef’s wife! She stopped to speak with us toward the end of our meal. Charming. A definite go to place in SF!

    Great food. Everything was delicious (the salmon, lamb, and duck dishes were wonderful) . Our waitstaff, Ed, was terrific. Jennifer, as always, was there to greet us and to check on us during our meal. She is so nice! Only negative was the parking, but that is a sign that the restaurant is doing well...
