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've dined at Bull Ring numerous times, this time was an unpleasant experience. The food wasn't great and the waiter was quite poor. We were seated in the far back corner and although it was quiet, we were essentially ignored. It took close to 10 minutes after being seated for the waiter to take our drink order. Anyway, nobody cares and I'm sure Bull Ring doesn't need the business. I'm sorry to say we probably won't be returning to the Bull ring on our next visit to Santa Fe.

Over priced food poorly executed. Food served on dishes you’d find at ponderosa. Steak was not high quality which you’d expect for 45.00 for a petite filet. Basic food.

We have eaten in the Bull Ring every year for several years. In the past, the food has been excellent. This year I had blackened salmon. It was very dry and overly spicy. The other items ordered were fresh and right on point. Pecan pie was excellent!

Bull Ring is a good Old-Fashioned steak house. The ambiance is typical steakhouse fare. The service was great, as was the food. We split the large porterhouse, which was melt in your mouth good!

Juan, our server was excellent! He provided a wonderful evening and compliments to the Chef as well. Our friends who live here that moved from Colorado were very impressed and will be back as well.

Thank you Bull Ring - you are always wonderful!

Despite reservations it took the hostess time to find seating. We were not acknowledged for 15 min when our drink order was taken. The waitstaff was very laid back for such a high class dinning establishment. The Petite was very tender but served plain and with no sides unless requested. Overall not worth all the hype for the expense.

Great menu choices and consistent high quality cuisine , I love that they incorporated their bar menu into the overall dining experience. The range of entree choices are great for entertaining a diverse group of diners and I prefer the ability to order smaller portioned dinners as it allowed us to fit in a appetizer-the escargots were exceptional-and enjoy a smaller portion prime rib.
The pecan pie also deserves an honorable mention!

Don’t hesitate to choose Bull Ring. The menu choices are varied, and so delicious. The burgers are so yummy. The mussels are heavenly. But the star of this restaurant is the steaks! Wow! I have never had a meal there that wasn’t absolutely delicious. I must also mention that the food is served piping hot, as it should be. Service is also worth mentioning, as it is professional and friendly.

We’re not sure what was better- the customer service and attention to detail or the food; all outstanding! Thank you to Conner at the front desk of El Coronado for the recommendation! We will be back to both establishments in the future.

Food and service was excellent! Important to know that all sides are extra, but do serve 2-3 people. Had the filet, was cooked to perfection! Always look forward to dining at the Bull Ring when we are in town!

It was our 1 year anniversary and luckily our governor had just reopened indoor dining at 25% capacity! I made reservations immediately knowing we were going to be in Santa Fe. We’d heard great things about the Bull Ring and we were not disappointed! It was wonderful in every way. We were in heaven after the first bite. We decided to make a tradition and this will be the place we go for every anniversary from now on! Can’t wait for next year!

We dined at the Bill Ring for my parents 69th wedding anniversary. The food was delicious. Our petite filets were cooked perfectly and were delicious. My dad enjoyed his Manhattan and his Lobster Tail! The asparagus, garlic mashed potatoes, and Au gratin potatoes were also delicious. Would July recommend the Bull Ring for a special occasion.

Fantastic experience. Harry does a great job. I’ve been to steakhouses in LA, NYC, Chicago and Dallas among others. With COVID I’ve been starving for a proper steakhouse and the Bull Ring delivered. Great job!!!

For the first time ever, we had a steak that was well done when ordered medium rare. This was rectified and steaks were delicious! Just one of those things that happen on occasion.

Food was terrific! Best steak I’ve had in a long time. Because of the pandemic, all dining had to be on the patio. Not sure whether that caused confusion or congestion but service was not 100%. These are difficult times for restaurants. We would definitely return.

We celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary during the COVID-19 pandemic. It was very important that we have a great dining experience and we did. The owner greeted us and made sure we were taken care of. The hostess was very cordial and our waiter was one of the best.

In a time of great societal stress, the staff at the Bullring functioned smoothly and gracefully to make a comfortable dining experience. I highly recommend the Bullring as one of Santa Fe's best dining establishments.

Stuck with the meat. The tomato and onion salad was terrible. - slices of hot house tomatoes with thick full slices swimming in a sweet vinaigrette (truly awful). The Santa Fe chicken was great. The accompanying fries were bland and soggy. The salmon salad was very good.

The hostess and service was very good...respected and adhered to all COVID-19 guidelines
