Sine 1971;
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 slow. Food was good. Green Chile stew was amazing. Tomato/onion salad was odd and expected it to be tastier. Broccoli au gratin was great. . Would return!

Excellent food, service and dining. Good operational attention to detail: ask an inebriated table of four to leave when they were making way too much noise!

I don’t understand why this place has so many great reviews, with the exception of the chili the food was terrible. Absolutely no flavor, didn’t think it was possible for o have bad Mac n cheese!! Also, I did make a note in the reservation that we were newlyweds celebrating our honeymoon…a complimentary glass of wine would’ve at least been nice.

Overall everything was really great, the steak was just a bit underwhelming. Staff was attentive and polite. The atmosphere was perfect and the noise level was moderate, therefore having a conversation was pleasant.

It appears we had some new folks today. Server was very inattentive and the steaks were grossly undercooked. We sent 3 of 4 steaks back and they came back crispy charred on the outside. Waste of a great cut of meat. The appetizers and side dishes were great and dessert was average.

Pretty disappointing. We sat outside on the Patio, took forever on service, poor recommendation on wine. We ordered Steak, which was good, but the broccoli was cold and the salads were not good. Took forever for bread, just overall disappointing.

Very expensive. Silly charges like $1 for blue cheese crumble on wedge salad. Really! Steak not at right temp. Too rare. For the prices charged they need to get the steaks right. Disappointed. I won’t go back.

I struggle to leave a bad review because the food is amazing and the kitchen does a great job but we were very disappointed with our recent experience at the Bullring. We have gone many times in the past for special occasions and it has always felt like a treat. But this time the service was really disappointing. We understand that restaurants are struggling with staffing issues, but our waiter made us feel like we were an inconvenience throughout the meal. It did not feel like a fine dining experience like it has in the past and we will likely be looking for a new place to celebrate special occasions in the future. Maybe it was an off night, but for the price, we can be treated better elsewhere.

The food is very expensive and all items are separately priced. The food was good but not outstanding. The rhubarb pie was delicious. The prime rib was good. The au gratin potatoes were very good. The lettuce wedge was good but the Italian dressing smelled like something dead in the road and had very little flavor. The service was slow but everyone was friendly. It was worth going once, but probably won't return.

We had a fantastic celebration at the Bull Ring last night. The food was delicious and despite a very crowded bar and restaurant (it was Indian Market weekend) the staff was kind, attentive and professional. It was a bit noisy but. Given the Indian Market event, that is to be expected.
