Arroyo Vino Ratings and Reviews
Having been fans of Arroyo Vino for seve ...
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 deliciou ...
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 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.

A LITTLE OUT OF THE WAY, BUT WELL WORTH THE DRIVE: We had a phenomenal dinner at Arroyo Vino prior to an evening at the opera. We were lucky enough to have the still-in-season fried squash blossoms stuffed with ricotta. They were wonderful! Of our party of three, two of us had the skate over melted leeks with fingerling potatoes and thoroughly enjoyed it. The third member of the party had the scallops and raved about them. The restaurant has an adjacent two-acre garden, so the vegetables you're eating are grown right on site. We were advised to try the exploding truffles and they were a fun experience. The restaurant also has a wonderful wine shop. Unfortunately we didn't have time to explore it, but we will next time. And there definitely will be a next time. We're really looking forward to our next visit.

Our evening was a spectacular dining experience. The service was superior. Every flavor from the food exceeded expectations. We had 6 "foodies" from out of state and they were all blown away by the service and how delicious everything was.

For $100/person, we were very disappointed. My mother fought flies on her food and on her body body the entire meal, two $44 a plate rabbit orders were room temperature. The food was good and lovely, but the entire experience including the food was not at all what it should have been for the price. We have paid the same price for a three Michelin star restaurant with masterful service and food on Central Park West in NYC.

This has morphed into a real restaurant. I was there about two years ago and swore I'd never go back; 1) no bar, wine only, 2) small tasting plates, and 3) table of four young mothers with their spoiled noisy kids running around the place. I'm glad I gave it another go...we had a really nice grown up evening. 1) Full bar. 2) Aggressive, full menu. 3) Full house of grown ups.

The absolute #1 restaurant in town. We have been eating here since they opened and, as hard as it is to believe, they have gotten better.
The only other place, which is in second place is The Compound.

This place was a real find. A true gem. We ate at several other restaurants, but they could not match the quality of Arroyo Vino. In addition to very good and creative food, the service and wine lists were exceptional.

A great experience. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. The ambience is great; nice decor, artwork and gorgeous views. Finally, the food is the best in town. Many restaurants say they are farm to table but this one really is. The chef is talented and creative and the food is fresh and imaginative.
The service was sophisticated, thoughtfu ...
The service was sophisticated, thoughtful and completely professional. The food was very good but for my taste there was a tendency for each dish to be on the bitter side. I felt that the use of herbs was too much. Or maybe not enough salt or spice. I was really disappointed with the lobster dumplings; very bitter. I would say that the food was interesting but not as tasty as I would like.

First time there....my wife and I were very impressed. Many reviews kept saying how small the plates were for the price and in all honesty we didn't feel that to be true. Were they a little pricey but not enough for me NOT to go back. My wife had the Halibut that melted in your mouth. I on the other hand went adventurous and ordered rabbit for the first time in my life and loved it....we will be back
Food and service were very good to excel ...
Food and service were very good to excellent. Atmosphere; it was too warm and a couple of flies were pestering us the whole time. Noise level high.
But all in all, we are happy to have this great restaurant so close to home. Next time we may try the patio, we did not see that until we drove away. The patio may be quieter.

The food at AV is inventive, luxurious and delicious. The fresh garden provides surprises of herbs and flowers with each course. The soft shell crab was amazing, done tempura style and the rabbit was the best rabbit I have every had and I had rabbit at Lutece in NYC when Andre Soltner was chef.
AV is not to be missed.
