                                  Outstanding once again. We shared a wonderfully reconstructed Caesar Salad of baby Romaine bundled with a paper thin wrap of cucumber, sprinkled with Parmesan & perfectly dressed. The beef tenderloin & beef cheek was just exquisitely prepared over a gratin with cauliflower & baby carrots. Molten Chocolate dessert with 20 yr old tawny port is fabulous.

                                  Perfect food and the service to go with it. The outside terrace is green and lovely and just opening for the season, so a little chilly...which is why they offer blankets as night falls.

I have to admit a $16 bowl of English Pea Soup seemed a bit pricey until it arrived! AMAZING!!!! Entrees fresh and fantastic!

                                  Small restaurant with big flavors. Our server, Emmillo, took great care of my girlfriend who has a ton of food allergies. The menu is interesting and our table of 6 were all impressed. The pace of service was a bit slow, but expected with a big party. Take care with the unisex bathrooms as a male patron didn't lock the door or the stall door and startled my girlfriend when she opened the door.

                                  Great….it’s an elegant but also warm and comfortable place. Chef Rios takes what’s familiar but presents it in new, exciting, and delicious ways. Unlike some other “high end” restaurants you get your fill, you won’t spend a bunch of money and leave hungry.

                                  Restaurant Martin has been consistently excellent for years - more consistently, I think, than any other fine dining establishment in Santa Fe. This meal was even better - the best we've had here. We had the salmon, beef tenderloin and rack of lamb. All three beautifully presented and delicious. The lemon cream coconut pie was also terrific, and we were glad that we went for the excellent Chateau Laribotte sauterne as well. Wait service and attention to detail by Jennifer (Martin's wife and restaurant manager) also much appreciated.

                                  For a memorable repast, dine here. The quiet, restrained atmosphere and the service are perfect. The menu is varied and well curated. Each dish is thoughtfully designed and created, with many complex parts that work beautifully as a whole. The asparagus salad, for example, we are still talking about. If this review seems to be a bit poetic, the food required it!

                                  The food was beautifully presented. The multipliciy of ingredients in each dish worked well together to provide a wonderful experience of texture, flavor, aroma and color. It was worthy of a Michelin star in MY "book." The service could have been more attentive. the later in the evening and fewer the customers the less oftern the server came around

                                  Restaurant Martin is our go-to place for special occasions -- birthdays, anniversaries, introducing new people to it, and any other excuse we can think of to enjoy an exceptional meal. We both enjoyed the exquisitely-prepared barramundi special and delighted in sharing our enthusiasm over the delicious accompaniments. And the desserts! Yum!

                                  We expected the restaurant to be pricey but really - why charge $10 for a cup of coffee? However the service staff were wonderful and accommodating.

                                  Just wow. My husband and I went to Restaurant Martin for his birthday dinner and we’re both blown away. This was hands down one of the best meals I’ve ever had. Beautiful space, fabulous service—it was a well thought out dining experience. Every detail was perfection. From a hot stone in the bread bowl to keep the bread perfectly warm to really enjoyable dinner music. Outstanding wine list I would not change a thing. Also, do yourself a favor and be sure to get dessert. We really could not have enjoyed it more.
