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.

Service was very very slow. The indoor space reeked of cigarette smell . Food was okay . Will not be back ! Other great places in Santa Fe to enjoy!
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!
Very pleasant outdoor dinning setting .
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!
Had a great dinner! We come to Santa Fe several times a year. When anyone wants a great night out for drinks and a great steak I bring them here. We had the bone in ribeye and it was amazing! The service is always impeccable!! Love the Bull Ring!
Absolutely fantastic meal and wonderful atmosphere. Our waiter, Juan, couldn’t have been nicer! Love this restaurant
Everything was unforgettable!! Filets, pecan pie wine and service all 5 stars.. if looking for an incredible steak this is THE PLACE
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.
The food is always great. The Bull Ring has the best steaks in town. The staff is always warm and friendly.
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!!!
This is one of our regular stops and it is high on our list because they always hits all marks, for, food, service the whole experience.
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, drink, and service were wonderful. Relaxing evening.
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 enjoyed a great meal with top notch service, thanks Carlos. Also Lisa provided a treat for some patrons as they thought my wife was Taylor Swift and we played along. Great time
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.
Always have a great meal at the Bull Ring!
Great food with outstanding service
If i had to change anything it would be the price two people without liquor should not equal 170+ i will go again but only a special occasion would warrant the price i payed still great
Excellent food as usual! Staff was great and attentive.
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
Awesome food and service! Can't wait to go back again.
The best of Santa Fe—The Bull Ring
Food was amazing. Service was excellent. It was nice and quiet.
Bull Ring was delightful from beginning to end. Food was perfection. Lamb and steak coked perfectly. Staff well organized. Recommend this gem to everyone.
Our first meal out here since the COVID Virus closed restaurants down. Everything was handled well and we felt very safe. The food, as usual was very good. The service was excellent. We usually dine at the Bull Ring at least once a month, and enjoy the atmosphere. I hope that this place as well as all of the restaurants in Santa Fe are able to pull through in these hard times!
Delicious food great service! Great location in the heart of Santa Fe
Best restaurant in Santa Fe!!!
The reservation at the Bull Ring included 6 at4:00 pm on a Friday afternoon. We arrived promptly at 4:00pm, the doors were still closed, but opened around 4:05pm. The dining selection was indoor or outdoor and due to the heat, we chose indoor dining. The menu is broad and tasteful, with a selection of seafood, southern food, steaks, a wide range of from the wine list and great Margaritas.
The service was excellent, and the waiter seemed to know exactly when to ask if we needed anything and ensured we were enjoying the afternoon.
There was however a bit of disruption when it came time for dessert. I had commented on the reservation that I intended to take a birthday cake, as it was my daughter's 21st birthday. The hostess said that a $25.00 surcharge is added for this request. After a brief discussion, she graciously waived the charge and we finished our dinner.
If a well prepared steak and medium sized portions of appetizers and entrees in a pleasant adult atmosphere is your style, then the Bull Ring is a good choice.
A party of six adults, ordering one appetizer, 2 cocktails and 6 entrees totaled a little north of $450.00. The food is a little better than RED Lobster, but he atmosphere is much classier.
Juan was fantastic and made us feel very special. We will definitely be returning to the restaurant and we will be asking for Juan. Cheers everyone!
Service was a bit slow.
The steak was excellent. Buttery, tender filet. Asparagus with hollandaise was great. As was the wedge salad. The coconut shrimp were perfectly fried, but there was almost too much coconut so it overwhelmed the taste of the shrimp. Outdoor seating was perfect! Overall a fantastic evening.
Small portions for large cost. Potatoes Au Grautin was only really for one not 2 or more to share
Thank you for an excellent dining experience.
We ate outdoors on the patio and enjoyed the attentive service and our dinners very much. The steak and lobster were the best
I’ve ever had. Highly recommended!
I thought the waitstaff was very unprofessional and inexperienced. For the price point of the restaurant we were very disappointed with the service and ambiance. There was no“experience” of fine dining.
For two people, a typical bill is about $150-$200. The tables should have a table clothe, candle and maybe a flower. It doesn’t take that much to make a place feel inviting.
Next time we may try the bar for the happy hour.
We celebrated our 37th wedding anniversary at The Bull Run. I had prime rib and my husband and a ribeye. Both were cooked to perfection! I will definitely return next time I'm in Santa Fe!
Although the expense was on the high side, the meal was excellent and the service was great. After a little sticker shock I realized we did get our money's worth!
Great service and food
