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 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.

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.

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!

The food was outstanding! We took advantage of Restaurant Week and I had the lobster tail and petite filet and my filet was cooked to perfection. Lobster tail may have been a tad overdone, but the filet made up for it. Sides of creamed spinach and their mashed potatoes were great. A great dining experience for the price

The food was excellent, the atmosphere was horrible. We were seated in what appeared to be a banquet room, across from a very loud large group. We could barely hear each other speak. This was very disappointing! It appeared that because we were there for Resturant Week, we were relegated to a less desirable seating area. This will be a loss to the resturant because my friend is moving here from Europe and was very disappointed in our experience. Although he thought that the steak and wine were delicious- he won’t be returning to the Bull Ring.

Food was delicious and the server was pleasant. I do think this place is pricey for what is served and the portions, even during restaurant week. The abundance of mirrors in the building is also a bit off putting in my opinion. I would come back though for special occasions.

We so wish we were at a table in the front room. The music would have added a lot, and in the back room, we couldn't hear it, and the room was quite noisy. But the food was great.

Made the mistake of sitting in the bar instead of the dining room. The bar quickly filled up with large tables of people who were very loud and annoying. Made it impossible to relax and enjoy my meal

Very poor evening.

Things started out great in the bar, but once we got to the dining room it went downhill.

We were specific and said after we ordered we didn’t want our food to come out too quickly.

Within three minutes all of our food was delivered.

The prime rib was tough and we sent it back. They tried to replace the $50 prime rib with a $8 dessert and we said no thank you. They did adjust the bill in the end, but they seemed to make it our problem.

This is not a prime steak house.

Came for Valentines lunch from out of town. I guess I got turned off by the hostess from the get go. Rather than seating us at our table she pointed to where she wanted us to sit. I saw her do this with a couple of other customers. This is a very old school steak place w/dated decor and Elvis blasting out of the speakers. I decided to go somewhere else after a drink b/c of the loud music. Honestly I don’t think I’ll return. The Burrito Come many across the street. It was much better and the staff was friendly!
