    We were just looking for someplace to eat before a show and found this restaurant on open table. Checked out the menu and saw the "duck" and was hooked. The duck was amazing as well as every other item on the plate. Just the right portion, no need to have an appetizer or salad. We were seated directly across from the bar, which was a bit noisy just because of the two women seated there were a bit loud. Probably normally wouldn't have noticed. Service was excellent. Will definitely come back!

    In all my life I have never had a better salmon preparation. Not only did the dish look beautiful, the sauce was so complex with tomato and coconut overtones, that it’s almost indescribable. The salmon comes stacked on a corn beignet, and is surrounded by baby bok choy, curly greens, tiny white flowers, radish slices, and butternut squash sticks. I almost asked for a spoon to finish the last of the sauce, but could not manage one more bite of this wonderful meal. I was glad the restaurant is chef owned so the chef isn’t stolen away from Santa Fe! We cannot wait to return.

    First and foremost the presentation was simply Amazing,, It was by all sense of the word edible art. ,, You almost had to turn the dish around to view all the angles and enjoy the masterpiece in front of you before you indulged yourself in your choice, Service also was top shelf light interaction with just the right amount of laughter and interaction . Everything with the right amount of balance in flavors from the Seared octopus to the sautéed mushrooms and Brussel sprouts to the perfectly prepared tenderloin and of Course to seal the deal was this magnificent espresso brownie dessert with a final message written in chocolate sauce around the rim of the plate congratulating us (my Fiancé and I) on our recent engagement and upcoming wedding Restaurant Martin was the perfect place to celebrate with friends,, Truly a unique dining experience Lee & Tammy LOOSEARROW

    A wonderful dining experience! The moment we walked in, AJ the bartender escorted us to the bar area to wait while our table was prepared. AJ prepared bespoke cocktails for us which were out of the this world. Edward, our server, was friendly, knowledgeable and incredibly professional. For first course through dessert, everything was absolutely delicious. Highly recommended!

    We were seated in a quiet corner of the restaurant. Service from Zoe and the staff was attentive and helpful with suggestions. The beet and burrata starter with grapefruit is not only pretty but delicious. House-made breads come in a variety and were inhaled by the three of us. Duck and barramundi fish special were portioned and prepared to our satisfaction. Diners can taste and tell that the chef cares about presentation and cooks with the freshest produce and quality meats and seafood.

    We live in Santa Fe part time now and while we are here, we love trying all the restaurants in the area. Restaurant Martin was on our list for our next special occasion and the restaurant did not disappoint. The service was spectacular from both the front of house host and our waitstaff. The restaurant is very nice, comfortable, clean, and a well appointed environment, more importantly, the food was truly terrific. There is something for everyone on the menu and we enjoyed everything. We will be back!

    The service (hostess, bussing and waiter staff) and wine options were amazing. The restaurant is inside a house so it’s noisy and you can hear the next table conversation that is less than 6 inches away on more than one side. The parking lot is bad and likely doesn’t meet city regulations. One getting to the restaurant a sign mentioned other locations for parking. It would have been good to know that information before getting there. The food is okay but the sauces are not. For the portion size the value is not good.
