Arroyo Vino Ratings and Reviews

This is our absolute favorite restaurant in all of New Mexico. The food is consistently outstanding, the wait staff exceptionally well informed/polite and the ambiance is lovely. The Brussels sprouts were amazing (who would have ever guessed?!?) and the mussels appetizer was delightful and my main of duet of duck was outstanding. We love this place.

We've eaten here many times and always enjoyed the meal and ambiance. However, we recently went for my wife's birthday dinner and had a very upsetting time. This was caused by my wife's vegetable entree having a LIVE caterpillar hiding in it. The caterpillar presented itself within her first couple of bites. Needless to day this spoiled the meal for us. They offered her another entree which, understandably, she wasn't interested in. They gave her a free glass of wine and comped her entree. This didn't even come close to compensating us for a ruined evening. Very disappointed!

This is a very nice upscale local restaurant in the Northwest residential area of Santa Fe County. It has an elegant menu with an excellent wine selection (the restaurant shares space with a very good wine store). It's on the pricey side, but it is worth it.

We have been to Arroyo Vino many times and feel blessed to have a world-class restaurant so close by. Only 6-10 minutes from downtown. The food is consistently delicious, healthy/french/local/haute farm-to-table if there is such a thing. Lovely staff and chef - very friendly and accessible.
Arroyo Vino is always creative and fresh ...
Arroyo Vino is always creative and fresh, with friendly service and a relaxed atmosphere. It has that Santa Fe combination of highly refined food and wine in a casual atmosphere. Some recent standout dishes were the burrata, fig, baby greens and prosciutto appetizer and the peking duck two ways with wild mushrooms, quince, and lovage. Their salad greens are varied, tasty, and extremely fresh. The amuse-bouche was a chive mousse with freshly-picked raw purple carrots, cherry tomatoes, and cucumber spears for dipping. They grow lots of the produce they use. Just pure, clean flavors. The wine list is excellent. Beyond that, you can pick your own wine from their adjacent wine store, to be served at your table for a corkage fee.

We took a group of ten there for a family reunion. Located several miles from downtown Santa Fe, the setting was tranquil and the sunset views impressive. The restaurant is positioned as one of the finer dining options in the area, so be aware of that if you are bringing young kids (as we were). That said, they bent over backwards to accommodate us. When they made a minor mistake on a bottle of wine, they made it up to us, and we went away happy. When we left a sweater there by accident, they volunteered to ship it back to us. Very pleased with their approach to service!

Spectacular as ever. We live in Santa Fe where there are a myriad of fine restaurants, with well known chefs, great ingredients and fine wine. But we can't go anywhere else but Arroyo Vino or we will be disappointed. Every time we go to Arroyo Vino for a meal, a wine tasting, or just to buy some wine and hang out with the fun and knowledgable staff, we leave saying: We love this place! Our meal last Wednesday was no different. The bottle of champagne my husband had picked out in advance was expertly chilled and waiting for us and was a perfect back drop to mind-blowing food. The locally foraged mountain maitake mushrooms - roasted and grilled - over a velvety risotto made with immature sunflower seeds from their own organic garden (I know, right!?) was so fantastic we had it twice. Seriously, it is that good. And don't miss the magical corn broth with scallops. It is like eating the end of summer in soup form with roasted chanterelle mushrooms, corn milk, and delicately cooked vegetables from the garden just outside the restaurant. The dining room is quite and elegant, the staff is efficient, helpful and there when you need them (and not when don't )and the food is always amazing. Go. Eat. You will love it.

We found this restaurant just NW of Santa Fe in 2015, and it was again the highlight of our week-long stay. Difficult to find in the dark, GPS (On-Star) got us hopelessly lost, Google Maps did better, but we were 15 late getting there. Take a map and follow directions, it's not as bad as GPS made it.
Good location, and excellent ambience. Service is impeccable start to finish, with good advice and answers to questions. We had a table of 5.
Best of all diners can order good wines by glass or bottle, including the opportunity to order, then select a wine from the adjacent wine store for retial+$30.00. The store manager is very knowledgeable about his collection, and they have great variety, including our French favorites.
Ordering is difficult, because of the unusual selections and great variety. Everyone at the table was happy with his/her selection, from appetizer to dessert.
Arroyo Vino is one of my favorite places in the world to eat. I wish I lived closer. HIGHLY recommended.

The duck was truly great...otherwise the meal was not memorable, a quality which I would anticipate for the reviews posted and the price paid. Acoustics made conversations quite difficult until the crowd thinned out.

Arroyo Vino is one of the very best restaurants in Santa Fe. Never disappoints. We always take out of town visitors to dinner there and it stands up to any big city fine dining restaurant. Food is always top notch, creative and fresh high quality ingredients. Server Paul Montoya is the absolute best. He give exceptional service and is an asset to Arroyo Vino.

We LOVED Arroyo Vino. From our first taste of food til the last we enjoyed every bite! The flavors of each dish including the amouse bouche, were delicately balanced. The freshness of the ingredients was evident in the taste of everything we ate. My husband felt his beef was a little saltier then he generally likes but despite this he enoyed his meal. We had wine paired with each course, all the wines were wonderful. The atomosphere was pleasant and casually elegant. The service was excellent. We are looking forward to our next meal at Arroyo Vino!

Having been fans of Arroyo Vino for several years, especially this past year, we have been disappointed in our two visits this month with food being either warm, not hot enough, or insufficiently appetizing. On this visit the scallops were warm (ditto friends on an adjacent table) and the lasagne was a big disappointment.
Our waiter Jonathon was outstanding as were the wines.

The sauce with the scallops was delicious. The vegetable plate might have been better if kept more simple. My husband loved the view of the sunflowers from the window. We chose this restaurant because it is close by, and because the size of the meals is not overwhelming.
Another great meal at our favorite resta ...
Another great meal at our favorite restaurant in Santa Fe. The staff is always friendly and welcoming. The appetizer of cheese stuffed squash blossoms was to die for and my scallops were done perfectly. Furthermore, it is always a treat to pick a bottle of wine from the huge selection in the wine store to have with dinner.

Appetizer courses were fabulous. Excellent use of vegetables. Scallops not seared and were overcooked and salty. Steak over done. Pasta fabulous. Smoked salmon app amazing. Service excellent. Made it to the opera without feeling rushed. Would return. Inconsistent but not in a way that made it too disappointing.

The food was superbly prepared and beautifully presented, as usual. Arroyo Vino is one of the best restaurant in Santa Fe. My party shared terrific stuffed squash blossoms, a wonderful green salad with fried goat cheese and pistachios, and an excellent pork porterhouse which was the special of the evening. And it certainly was.

It took 50 minutes to get our dinners, apologies were given and also a free glass of wine - already had a full bottle of wine for which they charged a $30 corkage fee. We bought the bottle from their wine collection. It was our anniversary night and we looked forward to a nice, special dinner and this was not the place for it. Very pricey for what you get. This was unacceptable.

All plates were small for sharing. Food was excellent.
The beef was tender and cooked perfectly. Cheese was outstanding as well as the squash blossoms.
One of the fish dishes was not good and was returned and a new dish came out and was very good. They did compensate us with free dessert.
