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 Bull Ring is a must stop place when we go to Santa Fe for us and our guests!!
All meat was over cooked. In a rush so we didn’t let the waiter know.
Had a lovely birthday dinner at Bull Ring. Always a good choice when visiting Santa Fe!
The staff was friendly and authentic. The food was cooked to perfection and the portions were generous. The atmosphere was very relaxing. Our waiter,Carlos, was very helpful and his service was outstanding.
We dined here on a family trip to Santa Fe. We thought the steaks were good, but the side dishes and service were just so-so. They have the classic steakhouse menu, and prices are high, so I think the food and experience need to be better to justify the cost.
The BBQ ribs we're very good.
The prime rib, which i ordered medium came out well done. Grey!
The server talk them back and the replacement was perfect.
You serve way too much asparagus and it was very mushy. Way over cooked for a great steak place or any place for that matter.
Great Prime Rib and filet!! Actually everything was great. If I had to nitpick, the Broccoli Au Gratin was a bit cheesy without the browned crust, but still very good. Highly attentive wait staff. If you like old fashioned steak houses, with subdued lighting and comfy booths, you'll love it.
Great food, great service and I just love those steaks. Wish I was in Santa Fe more often.
Bull Ring is always great -- we have going for the last 25 years. Best steaks in New Mexico or the Southwest for that matter. Also fantastic Escargot. Reasonable prices, great wine selection. David Smith
Best cooked steak I have ever had. They get it right EVERY time!
Always a great time when we go to the Bullring. The Food is always top notch. There cocktails are always made to perfection 😊
Drove from Albuquerque for my Daughters birthday and while reserving mentioned on reservation special occasion but no acknowledgement were made. Food was excellent as always with exception of prime rib which was Medium Well instead of Medium Rare. All the sides were excellent and had a great time other then that.
We return to The Bull Ring every time we visit Santa Fe. They are the best for making a prime filet exactly the way it should be prepared. I did notice that their vegetable plate has almost raw veggies, which I don't like. I sent back, but it really didn't make a difference. The tomato and the mushrooms and the creamed spinach were great, but the broccoli and asparagus was barely cooked.
We will still return for their steaks though!
Overrated. I have had much better steaks for much less. $9 for a side of mashed potatoes. Got our appetizer 1-2 minutes prior to our entrees. It was the wrong appetizer and not cooked fully/properly. We sent it back and it was removed from the bill. Our server offered us a dessert on the house for the inconvenience. We were not given a dessert menu, our server brought us one without consulting with/asking us what we would like. Our server was nice, and I feel probably a very good server but was just perhaps having an off day, in conjunction with a problematic kitchen. I would not eat there again.
Incredible wine! Great and caring wait staff.
My wife and I have been dining at the Bull Ring for over 10 years, celebrating birthdays and anniversaries. The steaks are outstanding and service has always been excellent.
We have been eating at the Bull Ring for about 9 years, and we enjoy the fabulous steaks there about 4-5 times each year. We so look forward to dining at the Bull Ring! Our usual server is Miguel, who is very attentive and makes sure we have a great dining experience. We highly recommend the Bull Ring!
Loved our lamb and prime rib. We visit Santa Fe every year and always schedule one meal here. Never disappointed
Very disappointing experience. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday and from the drinks to the food it was underwhelming. She asked for a Cucumber Martini and our waiter had no idea how they were made. Seeing this she changed her drink to a French 75 and it came in a water glass complete with ice and a straw. This drink is normally serviced in a champagne flute straight up. My dirty martini was very salty. We both ordered steaks and neither was cooked close to what we ordered. I ordered medium and it came closer to rare then medium and my wife ordered medium rare and it was rare. I sent mine back and it was apparent they put both the streak and the plate it was on in a boiler. Not what we are used to having at what is considered a upscale Steak House. The service was bad as well. .
We went to the Bull Ring for dinner on our Anniversary weekend in Santa Fe. The food was wonderful
and the waitstaff never let our glasses get low, always a plus! Then after dinner we were surprised with
a strawberry Cheesecake dessert on the house to celebrate the night.
I am originally from San Francisco and this restaurant reminds me of some of the wonderful old restaurants in the City by the Bay. Good martinis, good service, delicious food and wonderful atmosphere. It was my birthday and the staff all made sure it as a happy one. Do yourself a favor and give this restaurant a try, you won’t be disappointed.
The best steak in the state of New Mexico. Quiet and relaxing environment, a wonderful place to have an adult dinner.
Stopped in Santa Fe to once again have the Bull Ring's fabulous Filet.
Steaks are tender and flavorful. Cooked to order and served on a hot plate is perfect for side dishes. Have been eating here every year for 10+years.
We have been visiting Santa Fe for many years as it is our second home. However, we had not dined at the Bull Ring. Not sure why. We recently chose to dine here with friends and it was excellent. Several of us had steaks and one had salmon. Everything was prepared great and the service was superb. We will make this a regular stop on our dining venue.
Made reservations clearly stating that we were celebrating our anniversary. It was not mentioned by the hostess or the waiter. Escargot was tasteless overcooked and rubbery. Steak was served with a long brown hair on the plate. It was mentioned to the waiter. He took the hair without an apology or option to replace the meal. He acted like finding a hair in one's meal was common place. The manager did not even come by and apologize. I love bread pudding. It was on the menu, so I ordered it. It was served as sliced pumpkin bread with a sauce. Worst I ever tasted. The price was significantly more than advertised, and clearly more than the value received. Not a pleasant experience. Will not return.
Visiting Santa Fe from Texas And chose the Bull Ring for a cozy dinner. The service was outstanding and made everything very pleasant. We ordered the prime rib which was just out of this world good. I would recommend the Bull Ring to anyone it would be well worth the visit. Good job to the staff at the Bull Ring.
Too noisy, food was great as usual. We will be back labor day weekend.
Great Steakhouse- loved it- great food- lovely atmosphere- highly recommend to anyone
Amazing menu. Service was top notch. Had wonderful meal and truly enjoyed ourselves. Highly recommend.
Had dinner and drinks in the bar with no wait. Great ambience and steak very nice. Melted in mouth. Creamed spinach very good as well.
I had the 16 oz Ribeye, cooked to perfection, and shared mushrooms and asparagus. Topped with a house salad and coffee, and all was exceptional. Ate on the patio during a beautiful evening. I'll be back!
Dinner for 2 on a Friday night, the service was prompt and polite. We sat to the bar for a bit and the bartender was generous with the pours. The steaks were cooked perfectly and come on a hot plate with butter. Nothing too fancy here, blue jeans will do.
We had a group of 5 for dinner. The food was excellent and server was very attentive and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was vibrant and welcoming. We had the steak and crab combination and the steak was cooked to perfection and the crab was delicious. Definitely will be dining here again.
Great food, great service ,and great people.
Food is great; wish we got to the main event! Did not start of very well; we made reservations with requested for a table, not booth; host greeted us with a booth; she did work at it and we accepted a booth with one on outside and one in booth - OK, just a little strange. Great martinis, appetizers were very nice; so was the bottle of wine; then we wanted to order the special of the day advertised at the table: lobster tail for ($64) with add on of any steak of 7 oz ($34) that we would share. The waiter who served the martinis, appetizers and wine was great until he couldn't understand the sign about the special and just couldn't figure out what steak was available with the special; kept saying the steak was not $34, but more; called manager; not any better - totally a waste of time, so we left - a very disappointing anniversary celebration! Done with the Bull ring!
One of the top 3 bone-in ribeye I've ever had. Delicious, old school steakhouse. Be prepared - quite pricey.
My wife and I were in town for our 20th anniversary and were looking for a steak. We were referred by a friend to the Bull Ring. The food and the entire experience were exceptional. The prime rib was moist and had excellent flavor. The service was just as good. When we come to town again we will be eating at the Bull Ring.
Great food and wonderful service. Thanks. Our waiter was extremely professional.
The food was excellent and our service was great. We have a new favorite.
