Arroyo Vino serves a seasonal menu of progressive American fare inspired by our on premise garden and local purveyors. The wine program consists of several great by-the-glass options, a well curated list and well over 800 bottles in the adjoining wine shop. Bottles from the shop are available for just $30 over the retail price, making for an incredible opportunity to enjoy some great wines at reasonable prices versus the typical 3 times mark-up at most restaurants.

We really like the new menu, lots of great options to choose from. Enjoyed the flatbread, the salad was fresh and the branzino very good. The service was attentive and friendly. Look forward to a repeat visit.

Wonderful dinner from the spring menu. The recommended wine was perfect and the food and presentation was excellent. Service was warm and attentive. We’re locals and are drawn back to Arroyo Vino often. The ever changing menu keeps it very fresh.

Best farm to table dining in Santa Fe! The veggies and herbs are from their garden. We share the gardens salad, with a tangy vinaigrette.
My favorite is the gnocchi cooked perfectly and my husband gets the mushroom ravioli - the broth is out of this world! Ask for bread to soak up all of it! Wine selection is great - you can purchase a bottle at the store next door too. We feel completely pampered when we dine here: body and soul.

Half wine store and half restaurant. The food and service were excellent. We shared an flatbed appetizer that was excellent. My date had the Mediterranean chicken and I had the short rib. Both dishes were excellent. We split a delicious lemon pistachio cake. Nice building and nicely decorated inside.

Arroyo Vino is a great restaurant for a special occasion, a special treat, or just a good place for lunch or dinner. The food is fresh and local when possible, to the point where the restaurant maintains its own garden for salad greens, herbs, etc. It's location away from the downtown area is serene and provides plenty of parking. I could not recommend Arroyo Vino more.

Obviously there has been a change in the kitchen with what appeared to us a new chef by the food. We started off with a warm asparagus salad with morel mushrooms 7 an order of shishito peppers. Both very good. Then came my tuna main corse with again a salad. The chef should have seen that the first course was a salad and changed the side with my dish so as not to have two salads, albeit a bit different. The soft shelled crab was enormous and wonderful however the pasta seemed to have been pre-cooked & reheated because it was light years from being al dente. Way over cooked which is unacceptable in a good restaurant. Another reason perhaps a new chef in the kitchen???

The location is unusual but beautiful, since it’s Santa Fe - it’s out in a bedroom community amongst high end homes. The space is reminiscent of a country wine store on one end and the dining area is a luxury farm house room with some nice artwork. It’s intimate and not at all fussy. The wait staff was friendly and helpful.

We started with the Charcuterie plate, which was excellent with my Hendricks martini. Aside from the usual cured meats, it came with a very rich duck confit-type of pate that was delicious with small slices of their bread that the server offered in addition to the crostini.

I ordered the Beef Short Rib and it came in a deep bowl with whipped potatoes, baby multicolored carrots, and a broth that was extremely flavorful without being overbearing. It was tender and delicious and filling, even though it looked smallish in the large bowl.

I was a bit disappointed in Arroyo Vino. I had heard so many good things about it. However, we found out after we were seated that the chef had recently left and the new one had not yet started. I suspect this had a lot to do with the food. Our opinion was that the food just had too much going on. The flavors were not necessarily balanced. And there was very little nuance to allow the ingredients to shine. The overall effect was a very heavy meal when we actually ordered light.

On the positive side, cocktails and wine list are excellent. Service was also very good. Lovely views and friendly/knowledgeable sommelier. Hopefully, once the new chef has gotten her bearings, things will pick up on the food side and it will be a place we will want to return.

Unfortunately after a promising start, Arroyo Vino has descended into the realm of fussy, pretentious cooking focused on ostentatious presentations that cannot disguise unimaginative flavor and texture combinations. Adding to disappointment with mediocre offerings from the kitchen, the front-end staff is led by a smug Maitre d’hotel with very sketchy knowledge of wines and foods. Poor value, in short, with many wonderful alternatives for good dining in the Santa Fe area.

A bit of a drive from Santa Fe but well worth it. The service was impeccable, the food inspired and all delivered in a nice quiet, modern, low key setting. The cheese plate was a great selection, the tuna appetizer special outstanding, the short rib excellent but the bananas foster bread pudding was to die for! We would go back in a heartbeat! Well done!

Hadn't been to Arroyo Vino in a couple months so we booked a table for four during Santa Fe Restaurant week. The menu was a fixed price for three courses with three choices per course. The Brussel sprouts were fabulous as a starter. They were tender and somewhat charred but excellent. I had the oyster chowder as a first and the lamb tenderloin as my second. Both were outstanding. My wife's risotto as a second was very good and the lobster as a second was also top shelf. I hope management will add the brussel sprouts as well as the lamb to their every day menu.

Great meal for Santa Fe Restaurant Week. Great food and great service. We loved the shared cheese and charcuterie plates that the four of us shared to start with. A very pleasant evening and worth the price!
