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.

Best steaks in Santa Fe! Everyone was friendly and helpful. The owner, Harry always treats up like family and makes sure we have a great dining experience.

I love the Bull Ring. The food is great and the decor is delightfully retro. I think Frank Sinatra was dining at the next table.

We went for restaurant week and ordered the prime rib. The prime rib was delicious. The mashed potatoes and creamed spinach were okay. I personally like my garlic mashed potatoes creamier and with more garlic. I wasn't impressed at all with the spinach. When dessert came, I tried my friends bread pudding, which was delicious. I ordered the cheesecake myself, but would've preferred the bread pudding. Overall good food for the amount of money spent.

It was not a good omen that we waited 5 minutes to be seated by the hostess, followed by another 10 minute wait before someone came to our table to acknowledge us. I do not even think "Carlos" was actually our waiter but was likely the lead. It's not a good mark of a steakhouse when the claim chowder, chicken, and cheesecake were the best items we had. The rib eye was way underdone contrary to my temperature request, and the meat was flavorless. The vegetables we had were bland. We were extremely disappointed.

We’ve been to the Bull Ring many times, and it is the most consistently great restaurant in Santa Fe.

Cold draft across room every time someone came in from outside and we were in a corner booth and it did not make for an enjoyable experience. They have a vestibule but the outside door was wide open and it was cold outside. Lack of attention followed with the server who was late with items and generally was not interested in providing service.

Wonderful time with my sister and brother in law who were visiting from Arizona. Food was amazingly delicious and our server Juan was absolutely the best hands down.

We stopped in Santa Fe as an overnight stop and decided on The Bull Ring based on Yelp info. We were not disappointed; we enjoyed the coconut shrimp with our drinks in the bar where we were visited by our host Harry and made to feel welcome. Great ambiance, delish shrimp prepared uniquely delicious. Then we went to the dining room that was beautifully decorated and roomy: the service was excellent, our steaks prepared perfectly and served sizzling hot. Food was phenomenal- we will definitely return! Thank you Harry for a great experience.

The moment we walked in we were greeted by the owner of the restaurant of over 40 years, Harry. We are from out of state but he quickly made us feel like family and was very humorous! Secondly, The steaks were cooked and seasoned perfectly. The ambiance is that of a 70’s speak easy, laid back place. Lisa was also the best hostess I have had in a while! If ever back in Santa Fe we will be sure to visit! Thanks again for the food and service!

We met the friendly owner at happy hour prior to dinner. The food was very good but not excellent. Husband's ribeye was a 2 out of 5 however my petite filet was a 4 out of 5. Bread was not great, I enjoyed my salad. Generous pour of wines.

This is really the one of the consistently great restaurants in Santa Fe. Over the years, the quality and service don't waver. The steaks are the best in fact, they stand up to the best steaks anywhere in the US. They are perfectly cooked and if not, are undercooked so the diner has some leeway. If ever sent back, they are not overcooked but, as expected, are returned cooked to perfection. Don't know how they do it, but we have never been disappointed at The Bull Ring in our many years of going there. Although it is a long-time favorite for locals, it is always a sure bet for both locals and visitors.
