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.

Reminiscent of the classic, old world gentleman’s supper club. We had a large round booth which was nice to have and service was very attentive. We found the food good but not great; a $45 steak should be perfect and it was average. Everything was a la cart so dinner for two with a cocktail each and no dessert came to just under $200. For that I expect to be wowed and sadly I was not. While it was a fine dinner, the restaurant did not live up to the hype.

When we walked in for our reservation, the hostess was very cold and unfriendly, We went to our table and someone came by and threw some vegetables in front of us - no welcome or any thing. We did have a menu and the lest expensive item on the menu was almost $50. After sitting at the table for a couple of minutes, we decided that we did not want to spend that kind of money on such a cold and unfriendly atmosphere.

Very 1950’s style Steak House. Business dinner friendly. Entrees are solo so prepare to order sides. Decent bar and espresso. Great mashed potatoes. Rather pricey, but they did have a special one night of Chilean sea bass which was very good. Staff aims to please.

The Santa Fe Bull Ring is a very average steak house with extraordinarily high prices. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone because of their inflated prices. I expected an experience to remember and what I got was an “average” steak house experience. I could have made a better steak at home.

Our server mixed up our orders. My filet was medium and his larger filet was medium rare. She didn’t return to the table very soon so we just made the best of it and he gave me part of his in exchange for mine. But for the $50 price my husband paid for just the meat, it would have been nice to have it done the way he wanted it.

We nearly had the restaurant to ourselves on a Monday night so the service was disappointing. I don’t think we will go back any time soon.

I had ordered a rib eye med rare and it came out med well. Another at the table had ordered a large filet med well and it came out rare with a charred outside. Twice he had to send it back to the kitchen. The meat taste was ok nothing special compared to a top steak house like in NYC or DC. Especially when they are charging NYC or DC steakhouse prices. The waiter was knowledgeable of the menu and attentive to the needs of those at the table. All in all it was just another meal, welcomed though after so many choices of NM food in the area and days of eating it.

We had heard others talk about this traditional steak restaurant but hadn't tried it until this week. The menu is substantial with dinner and bar/lunch options. The format is similar to other steakhouses like Morton's or Ruth's Chris so be ready for a big tab. We managed by keeping the steaks small and splitting sides where we could. Our server was quick with recommendations and attentive so, no issues there. The steaks were perfect. Our dessert was pecan pie a la mode - a nice finish to a good meal.

The food (particularly the aged steak) is fantastic. However, service is unfortunately not always on par. With that in mind, it is still worth a visit if you are a steak fanatic!

The food was excellent, but to call an automatic 20% that is added to the bill a 'tip' , is unethical and offensive, and it offers no opportunity for extra 'tip' when deserved, nor a lesser 'tip' for poor service. Our service was only fair, and certainly did not deserve a 20% tip. 17% or 18% would have been reasonable. Adding 20% to the already over-priced alcoholic drinks was also unacceptable. The greed of the owners dampened our otherwise enjoyable dinner experience.

It's no wonder that this restaurant has such a good reputation in our town. Restaurant Week is a great chance to go to places we otherwise could not afford. I wish you had winter "locals" specials once in a while for those of us who can't afford your great food on a regular basis!

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.

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.

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!
