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 food was very good but the portions were very small. I had the Chicken Fried Chicken and while it was quite good my portion was about the size of a small hamburger. I actually ordered an additional piece which they happily provided at an additional price. I am not a big eater but I was very underwhelmed. My female companion had the Chicken Fried Steak and it too was modest but good. Drinks were good and overall I would recommend this restaurant and will return.

The service was great from the time we walked in the door, until our meal was finished. The waiter was very personable and our meals came out of the kitchen in a timely manner. The ambiance was very comfortable and pleasant. I would certainly recommend this venue to all.

Been to Bull Ring dozens of times - used to be one of our favorites. Positives first - corned beef and cabbage was outstanding and everyone was friendly and polite. Unfortunately, service was not the appropriate level/intensity for a $40-60/person tab. Had to ask for water and bread refills. Came out with completely wrong steak order the first time (a rib eye vs gentleman's cut filet). Second time also incorrect order, but didn't complain so we could eat together ( instead of medium gentleman's cut filet, bone-in and practically raw). The server did offer to take it back to cook longer, but corned beef entree was already finished. The caesar also came out with a couple of past-gone leaves and the baked potato was dried and seemed old. Anyway, we love the steakhouse atmosphere and friendliness of staff, but we'll be giving other steakhouses a try.

We’re from Texas, so we have an abundance of fine dining steakhouses to chose from, but we were in Santa Fe for a ski trip and wanted a change from casual dining or fast food. What a treat! My grandson ordered baby back ribs and practically licked the plate. My husband ordered the filet and said it was as good as any he’s ever eaten. The special was Chilean Sea Bass (my favorite) and I was in heaven. The au gratin potatoes and Mac n cheese were great sides. The server made a scoop of ice cream my grandson wanted look “fancy”. He was thrilled with it. We’ll be back next trip to Santa Fe!

Food was very good but over priced. Requested my food be boxed to take home and all of my food was not packed. Just the steak. Thjs very upsetting since the cost over priced. Our server was great and attended to our needs. Especially when one us ordered lobster and you were out and did not account for the holiday rush. Need to better plan. Very disappointing.

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.

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.
