The Bull Ring
The Bull Ring has been a part of Santa Fe’s Culinary landscape for so long it's hard to think of a time when it wasn't there. The world famous Bull Ring offers all the most popular cuts, ranging in size from the the 8-oz petite filet to an enormous 40-oz porterhouse for two. The Bull Ring prepares steaks in an 1,800 degree grill and serves them on a sizzling hot plate with melted butter. The Bull Ring is also known for their juicy lamb or pork chops, mouthwatering barbecue baby back pork ribs or fresh seafood.
If you are looking for a more casual experience, the lounge is a local favorite, where you can mingle with old friends or make new ones in a Cheers-like atmosphere. The bar serves exceptional pub fare, including the succulent Prime Burger.
The food was awesome. Literally the best steak I have eaten.
Service was exceptional!!
Fast service. Didn’t want long at all for our food.
Excellent food, drinks and service. A big party next to us was a bit loud.
We walked with reservations. We were seated right away. Andrew was our waiter and he was great. Food was brought in a very timely fashion and it was delicious. The wait staff cleared used dishes with perfect timing. When we were done we called Lisa over to commend her on her staff. We are from Albuquerque and the 60 minute drive is very well worth it.
The Bull Ring was wonderful! Immediate seating, knowledgeable and kind staff, delicious steaks literally sizzling on the plate when served and pleasant atmosphere.
Had dinner here 2 days ago. The salads were OK, not exceptional. The veal chop & the lamb chops were outstanding however & cooked to our specifications, perfection. Nice wine list, though pricey.
Best porterhouse steak ever!!
We had a great dinner with some friends & colleagues while we were in town for Las Cruces Day in Santa Fe! We all ordered steak and everyone was pleased...I will say they are huge! The au gratin potatoes are a must too!
Food was excellent as was the service. It was a little noisy and tables are close. Will definitely go back again soon.
Definitely one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. Would recommend, on the higher end but well worth the price. Actually went back in the same week with a business trip and had the salmon and was also very good.
The food was amazing! Best prime rib ever!! I would definitely go back again.
The Bull Ring is our ONLY choice for steakhouses while in Santa Fe. The food and service is always excellent. No need for us to go anywhere else.
Great steakhouse. Good value. Great service.
The food was delicious.
I went away stuffed and happy.
Mediocre food and very much overpriced for the quality. The ambience, decor and sitting is awkward, felt like doctors office.
Was good went for New Years eve
This place was fantastic. Everything we had was top notch. The steak was incredible. Wonderful service. Will make this a regular stop when in Santa Fe.
We enjoy a dinner at The Bull Ring about 4 times a year for the past 6 years, and we always had an excellent meal. It’s a great dining experience.
Our third meal here. Outstanding service and menu selections. Consistent quality. Steaks are world class. Friendly staff and classy ambience. Only criticism is that some of the tables are placed a little to close together. Our favorite Santa Fe restaurant. One of the country's great dining establishments.
Cocktails, appetizers and steaks were all well prepared and of very good quality and tasty. Service was good and attentive.
Our Christmas Eve dinner was perfect. The waitstaff was attentive and friendly and the food was outstanding. Thank you for making the evening memorable!
Wonderful service. The steaks were done perfectly and very flavorful. And the side dishes - one dish plentiful for a table of 4. Will come back next time I’m in town.
Worth every dollar! The steaks are tender and cooked to perfection. The sides are generous and delicious. The drinks are filled to the brim. Everything about this restaurant says "style" and "abundance". We have eaten too many good meals to count here. Thanks for another great evening.
nice atmosphere; dont mind paying for a steak, but sides were terrible. avoid the baked potato $10 and was cold.
Amazing ... still our favorite place in Santa Fe (maybe anywhere).
We enjoyed our 47th Anniversary Lunch at this establishment. The food was delicious and our server Tomas was attentive but not intrusive which we greatly appreciated.
One of our favorite restaurants. Wonderful steak and great sides. Drinks always good and service is perfect.
Best steaks in Santa Fe.
This is our go to steak restaurant when in Santa Fe. We love the ambience & the "old time steakhouse" feel (and the fact that there are usually no screaming kids). We were a bit early for our reservation, so my husband & I sat in the bar while waiting for the rest of our party to arrive (great bartender!). I sat next to a very friendly man who turned out to be the owner. Enjoyed some conversation in the bar with different patrons before being seated in the restaurant.
The waitress arrived to get drink orders & returned with the drinks fairly promptly. We then ordered dinner. 3 of us had the "Matador" steak (but the Chilean Sea Bass, which was a special, was very tempting), 1 had prime rib, and the other had the vegetarian platter (an extremely generous portion). We also had an order of spinach for the table. Each one of us thoroughly enjoyed our dinner, the ambience, and the selections. The service was good, but a bit slow towards the end of our stay. I would definitely recommend the Bull Ring if you are looking for nice steak restaurant.
Mediocre at best. Charged us $5 to split an entree and didn’t tell us upfront. So it was okay but not worth the money, for sure.
The food was very good but not the best prime rib I've ever had. The service was very good in many respects but our water glasses were never refilled. For the price I expect excellence in all areas and we did not get that. It was a birthday celebration for my best friend and she loved the complimentary cheesecake. That was a nice touch. I don't get to Santa Fe often but The Bull Ring is a splurge I allow myself when I do.
This restaurant was by far the best place I have eaten in a long time!
As always, great food, great service and the best martini’s in Santa Fe
Great spot for dinner. The prime rib was delicious. Nice selection of wines. Definitely recommend The Bull Ring.
Great service, enjoyable dining, worth the expected price tag.
The night was fun; the service was on point: wait staff was engaging, patient and knowledgeable.
For the price point I thought it would be a bit more posh, but the venue was still good.
I would recommend any and all future diners ask for a booth!
Reliably wonderful food and
Wonderful professional service
We were very pleased with our evening! The service was outstanding as was the food and the wine! An excellent meal! The steaks were high quality meat and cooked to perfection!
Fabulous meal with great service! Great place to eat in Santa Fe.
Our evening began when we were greeted by our lovely hostess—friendly and charming. My husband and I continued on to have a remarkable meal; he had the filet mignon and I the Santa Fe chicken along with sides of au gratin potatoes and creamed spinach. Wow, just wow—perfectly cooked and seasoned. Our waiter, Tomas, was friendly and efficient. We also had a lovely Cabernet chosen from the extensive wine list. The guests seemed to be locals who knew and cared for one another and who certainly knew the best place in town to eat! In a world of amazing Mexican food, the Bull Ring was a beautiful change of pace—five stars!
First visit & if I were to return to Santa Fe & were looking for a fine dining experience this would be my choice.
