It was so nice to go to Restaurant Martin just before restaurants got shut down again in NM. My husband and I had a very relaxed and delicious meal there. The wait staff were very professional, wore masks, and stayed at a distance from the table when talking to us. It was a very pleasant evening.

Excellent meal in all. Interior renovations had us sitting in a newly created dining area, acceptable but not the same as the inside dining room. Always among the best in Sante Fe

The food and service here are beyond words. DO NOT pass up the Cesar Salad, Orzo Mac and Cheese, and the Chocolate cake with cinnamon ice cream. This is beyond 5 Star.

Fun dinner. Family dinner including our 4 yr old granddaughter with the thought it could be the last decent weather day for outdoor dining. That was the “special occasion”. Granddaughter ordered the Mac and Cheese and her and her dad enjoyed it very much. Duck was fabulous, steak was like butter and the special grouper dish was delicious. The dessert was fun to share, we had the molten bittersweet chocolate cake and lemon curd brûlée. Our granddaughter wanted to meet Martin so he came out and said hello. Lovely evening for all.

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner with the Martin team on Sunday October 18, 2020. The staff was friendly and helpful and our waiter Ryan was a wonderful and knowledgeable server. We ate out on the patio on a beautiful Santa Fe autumn evening. We enjoyed scallops, butternut squash soup, a special blue nose sea bass and the beef tenderloin, along with sparkling wine to start and a half bottle of Barolo with the meal. The food was exceptional with unique and layered flavors and beautifully presented. Martin is great spot for a special date or special occasion in Santa Fe. Thank you team Martin.

For COVID19 dining, an excellent dinner experience. We ate inside, plenty of spacing. Outdoor dining looked good too. Our service was EXCELLENT. Our food and drinks were served quickly with attentive service from all the staff. Our entrees were excellent. We splurged on the molten chocolate cake for dessert. Another excellent choice.

Restaurant Martin has a new menu and the food was excellent. We ate outside in their relatively new dining portal. It has space heaters and clean (washed every night) blankets to use if you'd like to put one over your lap. The staff was very well trained and did a lovely job. We had a wonderful evening and will be back.

This was one of the best meals my husband and I have had in our travels. He had the Scottish Salmon and I had the Duck. Both meals were exquisitely delicious. Beautiful presentation and our server, Ryan, was personable and attentive without being an interruption. Dessert (the chocolate lava cake and caramel ice cream) was spectacular and perfect to share. I will admit that I had to google a few of the menu items. Not sure when we will return to Santa Fe, but if we do, Restaurant Martin will be at the top of our list. Don't miss!

We ordered the vegetarian medley entree for our appetizer to share. The items on the plate were excellent: sweet potato, apple fritter, black beans soup. That was a fair price of $28. However, our entrees of lamb chops $49and fish of the day (similar to a sea bass in texture) (market price). while delicious were not a good value for the money. The fish was no more than a 4 oz. serving and the 2 lamb chop were tiny. We are not large people and feel that the entree’s are way over priced. Our server Zoe was terrific. We would only go back to the restaurant to order appetizers not over priced entree’s.

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.
