Arroyo Vino Ratings and Reviews
I'm not sure how to begin because our experience was so wonderful. That was our first evening in Santa Fe. We had just driven up from Austin. By a stroke of luck, we had a friend let us use their guest house nearby in the area. We loved the service. So personal and connecting. We loved the food - so creative and incredibly delicious. The wine - spectacular, the ambiance was simply divine. Our plan is to spend more time in Santa Fe and so for sure plan to return for more amazing dinner with our guests. One thing I personally enjoyed was how quiet the restaurant was. All the best to you Tom and Donna
We met our best-foodie-friends at Arroyo Vino 3 years ago and we had a reunion on the terrace.
The food was fantastic. Small portions; gigantic creativity and wonderful flavors.
One benefit of a high end restaurant is the extras. An amuse bouche early on. And, when the thai chilies on the beef tartare set my mouth aflame, Michael our server ran (yes, literally) and got a scoop of burrata ice cream which is my new favorite.
We were on the terrace at the last table and the service was excellent despite the treck from the kitchen. We've found the servers at AV to be exceptional ever since they've opened.
Their wine selection is wonderful. You can select from the printed menu or buy from the wine store with a $30 upcharge added (it used to be $20)
They have a large garden which supplies a lot of fresh vegetables and greens.
OK, not cheap. But worth it.
My first visit to Arroyo Vino was in June. I brought a group of four people to celebrate a special occasion. The meal was delightful. High-quality ingredients, preparation, flavor, and presentation. I returned again on July 19th with a group of four. We had a very disapointing experience. I dont think the chef was working that evening. The flavors were so overwrought and hyperbolic. Ingredients were lost in overpowering difficut to eat sauces. The presentations were sloppy witout finess. They looked like a bad mimic of what we had experineced on our first visit. Portions were absurd. Petrale soul cutlet that measured 3" X 1.5" the size of "a piece of sushi"? Pork tenderloin: three small bites approximately 1.5" X 1"...just laughable. A baby Japanese eggplant lost in a sea of overly sweat indistiguishable sauce drowing everything in sight. Sorry Arroyo Vino..we wont be back. It was all wrong.
This was our first time and it was worth the drive into the suburbs.
The food was excellent and original ; the service superb.
Great wine list and wonderful food. Only complaint we had
was that the service of food to the table after ordering was slow.
It took and hour to get our main course but it was worth the wait.
Don't go if you have a time constraint.
The chef is amazing...an artist. The flavors were memorable.
Would definitely go back on next rip to Santa Fe. Go and go with the "slow."
A real food treat.
As usual the service at Arroyo Vino was super. The meal started with a serving of good bread and a selection of olive oil and pumpkin oil dips. The menu has not changed much in the last few months and is limited. The Halibut was excellent and well presented. The escargot appetizer was unique and quite good.
Once again, a really terrific meal with superb service. The starters (and pre-starters) were incredibly delicious and inventive. Then main dishes very good but not at the same dazzling level. Desserts were bold, inventive, not the prettiest, but very memorable. The homemade ice-cream was sublime. Of course, with a name like this, the wine list is excellent and exciting. As I was the only person drinking alcohol, I was constrained to order wine by the glass. I had three different choices, all of them delightful. ARROYO VINO is a very special place, one of the gems of Santa Fe (and the entire region) and I always look forward to going there.
I think the food is prepared very well -- quite above average. This would be an excellent restaurant for many reasons -- good staff, white table clothes add a bit of elegance, gourmet food -- the problem is the value. The portions are so small that you almost have to go home and eat afterwards, or face paying an exorbitant price (I'm talking well over $100 if you buy any wine or drinks). They need of offer larger portions on their plates and then, this would be a top restaurant for Santa Fe.
Waiter was very nice, but kitchen is excruciatingly slow.
I nearly laughed out loud when my $44 lamb chop (as in one (1)) arrived. It had to be under 1 ounce...Would have been nice if waiter had disclosed that the "special" of the day would be just a little "smidge".
Unless you are into overpriced microfood that takes an hour to arrive at the table, I'd avoid this place like the plague!!
Absolutely beautiful restaurant situated on beautiful acreage near Las Campanas. Beautiful sunset view! The food is phenomenal...unique, but not too unusual, using ingredients grown on-site and fresh. The restaurant manager was behind the bar and created a cocktail for us, based on our tastes. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly and the wine list was impressive as well.
We can see why the chef was a James Beard finalist! The food and presentation was
spectacular. The quality of the ingredients, the creative and thoughtful presentations and oh, the flavors were off the chart. The waitperson, Jonathan was attentive, knowledgable and a real gem. We never felt rushed and while the ambiance was classy, it was never pretentious or uppity.
A true dining experience. We recently moved here and are thrilled we do not have to travel back here just to enjoy a fabulous meal!
Super waiter. Super slow kitchen.
Interesting and delicious menu selections. Ok wine list.
Small portions. Nice presentation. Bold seasoning. Overall creative and appealing, but way over salted.
Very expensive for very ordinary dining space. Like by 25%. This is no Geronimo or Compound service or dining room.
We visit Arroyo Vino almost every time we come to Santa Fe. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is quiet but very lovely, and the service is exceptional. The adjoining wine store is also worth exploring! A wonderful restaurant that has never disappointed!
Excellent as always. Halibut and sole were some of the best we have had anywhere in the world. Love the exploding truffles! Ate on the patio with the "babbling brook" which was peaceful and relaxing. We will be back in a couple of weeks with our son, his girlfriend and my daughter who will be visiting us!
If you are a foodie, you must experience Arroyo Vino. Our dinner here was the best food experience of our trip to Santa Fe. Quality, passion, talent, creativity, depth and focus are the words I think describe it best. We had the charcuterie to start and had the chicken and lamb for entrees. We could really taste the depth of flavor and the freshness in the food. We also had the cherry dessert which was just the right ending for a fantastic dinner.
A wonderful experience. I am very impressed with this restaurant and the quality of food. It is up there with San Francisco and New York City top restaurants. Excellent presentation and care with each dish. The wine selection was fantastic and immense. Service was excellent for Santa Fe.
