Steakhouse
Sine 1971;
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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

Enjoy;

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!
