Sublime as always

Dined on April 23, 2016

We celebrated my husband's birthday last weekend at Arroyo Vino, where we now always go for special occasion dinners. Every detail was perfect. The service impeccable and food stunning. The spring panzanella salad was the evening's highlight, topped only by the beautiful banana pudding made with brioche bread that came with an elegant white birthday candle surprise. The salad was so good we ordered it twice. Just a salad you say? Well, herbs and micro greens fresh from Arroyo's own garden, shaved hard ricotta, buttery croutons and a magical sous vide egg made it one of the best things we have ever eaten. It was a salad mic drop. If you have not tried Arroyo Vino, you will not be disappointed. It is such a treasure, and takes dining in Santa Fe to a whole new level.

Three course fixed price menu hits the spot!

vip
Dined on April 14, 2016

All three courses of our fixed price menu were excellent. Both the asparagus soup and the asparagus salad were loaded with fresh ingredients and very tasty. The main course included various fresh greens from the Arroyo Vino garden which added flavor and a spring time look to the dishes. The chef actually stopped by our table to point out the different ingredients. That was much appreciated. The rhubarb desert provided a great end to an enjoyable evening and reminded us of spring in the Midwest.

Close to perfect

Dined on April 10, 2016

Even with our toddler with us (she did her part by behaving), we had a very nice meal here. We got to sit and enjoy some wine and have a complete meal. It felt like a nice break. The restaurant is just beautiful, but not assuming or overdone. It's very appropriate for Santa Fe. Nice and clean. It's tucked away in the hills off the relief route and the setting is lovely. Food is absolutely beautiful and there's a great, fresh variety. I think most is local and certainly has a local spin on it. They have an amazing wine list, though there aren't as many options for single glasses. Wait staff is informed and professional and very friendly. We will go back next time we're in SF.

Memorable Anniversary Dinner

Dined on April 3, 2016

We were 2 couples celebrating our anniversaries. As soon as we were seated the waiter poured us a glass of procecco to help us begin our celebration. What a treat! We ordered one of their Last Bottle bottles of wine for dinner. Yikes $70 but it was a $40 discount and it was a special occasion so we splurged. It was wonderful wine. We each ordered a different dish but the best one was the chicken duo. Very, very good. Everyone else's was very good but the chicken (whodathunk?) was the star. Service was superb and the dessert we picked was just 4 of the volcano truffles? Love that pop of fun in your mouth. Wonderful, albeit not cheap, dinner. Can't wait for the next time we can go.

Great food and wine

Dined on March 5, 2016

A unique factor of Arroyo Vino is the attached wine shop, providing a large selection of wines with a low markup in the restaurant. The wine shop staff is also extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. On top of that, the food is fresh, creative, and interesting. I've been a number of times and have never been disappointed.

We are regulars in the SantaFe restaurant scene. We find Arroyo among the best here and around the US. Prices are befitting a 5 star restaurant however the food is outstanding! New flavor combinations , fresh ingredients and a changing menu that is NOT Southwest- more Continental. If you want only value- this may not be your place. If you want a great dining experience then you need to go to AV! Plus a great waitstaff!

Great restaurant with an intellegent wine policy.

Dined on February 21, 2016

Arroyo Vino has come on in the last year to be one of Santa Fe's finest and smartest restaurants. And rightly so, the menu is excellent and the food is well prepared. Every other Thursday evening they offer a themed family style pre-fixe dinner with wine by the glass pairings. This excellent restaurant has a great wine list and the smartest wine pricing in all of Santa Fe. Arroyo Vino began as a wine shop and soon added the restaurant. It is fair to say, the restaurant was built to complement their retail wine business. The wine shop and restaurant are under one roof so if you do not find the right wine by the glass or bottle selection on the wine list you can walk into the wine shop and choose any bottle from their broad selection to be served to you at your table for the wine's retail price plus a $20 corkage fee. No needless 3x mark-up is going on here. I know of restaurants in California, without an adjoined wine shop, that have begun pricing their wines similarly; the wine's retail price plus a corkage fee. Instead of insulting your customers with excessive to prohibitive wine pricing, retail plus corkage pricing enhances wine sales and builds customer patronage. Bravo Arroyo Vino!

Noisy shoes on hardwood floors. Great food.

Dined on February 15, 2016

Everything was great about the food, flavor, preparation, presentation, and great wine list. Tables a bit too close together, and the place was full, but not too noisy, except for the hostess who had VERY loud hard heeled shoes which she stomped through the dining area whenever seating or resetting a table! This was very annoying, and almost ruined a great dinner. Still, we would go back and try again because the chef and waitstaff did a great job. Hope mgt buys her soft sole shoes!

A Very Dissapointing Evening and Meal

Dined on February 14, 2016

We were offered a prix fixe menu with very few selections. The salmon appetizer was good but our entrees -- an undisclosed cut of steak (tasted like a petite sirloin) -- were tough and not very good. We had a very long wait between the appetizer and the entrée -- at least 45 minutes. People who arrived after us were served before we were. We had to ask what the delay was. We were offered a dessert wine in compensation but it did not make up for the $65.00 per person for a mediocre meal. I abhor sweet wines and my "gift" was left unconsumed. We have had better meals at Arroyo Vino but we will be very reluctant to go to another prix fixe offering. The total was $205.00 ($170 plus tip) and it was worth much less. A very disappointing meal.

Arroyo Vino

Dined on January 30, 2016

Great experience; only a couple of hiccups. Service started out prompt and friendly and turned to near-average as this experience progressed. Complimentary appetizers were a nice touch. We have a party of five and 3 of the entrees were not hot. 1 was sent back to be reheated and it took a very long time for the entree to return to the table. Again, accommodation was made with complimentary glass of wine. Five persons, five entrees, 1 bottle of moderately priced wine, 1 beer and total was approximately $340.00. This will be only a special occasion place for me the future but I will go back for sure.

Dined on January 10, 2016

I have eaten in restaurants all around Santa Fe and in other major cities in the U.S. and Europe but can only think of a few that may have offered service as good or better than I had on this visit to Arroyo Vino. Our waiter was attentive, met requests with prompt and overly-generous service and made us feel as though we were his special guests of the evening. We truly enjoyed our dinner and the outstanding service that accompanied it.
