Once again Restaurant Martin has come through with an elegant, scrumptious dinner on their outdoor, sheltered patio. The fish special was delicious and served in a pleasing arrangement. The Molten Chocolate Cake was almost too good to share but my husband and I scooped up every last bit of it. I do believe there is no finer restaurant in Santa Fe.

Had an outstanding meal as one would expect from a James Beard nominated chef. But what really stood out was how management went above and beyond. I had just that day had my offer on a Santa Fe home accepted and had brought a bottle of Sea Smoke to celebrate. The owner, Jennifer Rios greeted me and then explain that they can’t do corkage in Santa Fe as it is a law. I was definitely in a jam as I had a flight out the next day. Next thing I knew, she offered to hold the bottle for me till I returned, no worries. Who does that?
Special place with special people. It will be a regular haunt for us.

Although we had a less than perfect experience, the manager did call me back and gave me the opportunity to share that experience. I appreciate her time and willingness to have the conversation. This is so important, especially these days. Thank you for all that you do. We would love to come back and try again.

This was a lovely dinner, well worth our selection for our tenth anniversary. One of the owners greeted us when we arrived and sat us at a corner of their large, elegant patio, perfect for privacy and people watching. The food was divine (I had the chef’s special, sea bass with a lobster stir fry with a lovely cauliflower and tarragon sauce, and my husband got the crispy skin chicken with everything on the side... he’s one of those people!!) and they served a lovely special dessert of molten chocolate cake with cinnamon ice cream... complete with mini spatulas to scrape every last drop. Perfection!!

Everything tasted wonderful and was beautifully presented, from the chilled English pea soup to the Sense of Summer dessert. The patio was a perfect setting, with strings of white lights after sunset to add to the ambience. This is the place for a special occasion, or just to make any dinner out special.

Restaurant Martin never disappoints even during a pandemic! The food is always delicious and the presentation is like a work of art! Our only complaint is that this work of art takes a long time to get to the table but never less we will continue to patronize this wonderful place!

This is a must when it comes to amazon food prepared by an awesome chef!! The service is brilliant. Every detail attended to. Even down to the bread basket. They placed a hot rock in the button of the basket to keep our bread warm. Our son had the Duck, my wife had scallops and I the chicken. All fabulous and beautifully presented.

Restaurant Martin is a gem. I called ahead to see if they could prepare any of their menu items in a low salt preparation. They let me know that they could. When I arrived they had a wonderful and tasty low salt dinner for me. Further, the patio is beautiful and the service was perfect.
