About Arroyo Vino
Arroyo Vino serves a seasonal menu of progressive american fare inspired by our on premise garden and local purveyors. Also available is a 5 course Chef's Tasting Menu which focuses on the daily harvest in our garden, seasonal local and wild foraged produce. 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.

Arroyo Vino Ratings and Reviews
Not our first visit but we won't rush back. Our server was very good and sommelier chose an excellent wine. To start, the stone fruit salad and the bisque were excellent. However, two of the entrees were sub par. The NY Strip was ordered rare and what was served was a fillet cooked MEDIUM with no trace of flavor of bone marrow or truffle; additionally, that meal was served room temperature. The salmon dish was overcooked and dry. The vegetarian dish served with curry was really tasty.
We have been dining here since the restaurant first opened. Although the food is expensive by some standards, it is worth every penny. The menu is fantastic. The service is always spot on. This time we did not like our table, and the manager came over and made sure that we were happy. These are the reasons that we dine here frequently.
I love good food and this resturant gave me one of the best dishes of my 67 years. They called it a end of the season stir fry and it was amazing with its depth of flavor a and texture. A true master piece. Our other dishes were stellar but this one shined. The staff was very attentive and knew their products. Unfortunately I live far away and will not be able to go back. I'll remember it well!
Lovely drive a d setting. Dining space is calm, intimate and decor is calming yet interesting to look at. I went there on the recommendation of an aquaintence who said the halibut was great which is what I ate and was. Service was good the best part was the bartender. I ate at the bar and he was very helpful in helping me find a glass of wine to go with my first course. Coffee was also excellent. They bring it there and that aroma alone is an experience. It was an unusual blend, not something I would have usually picked and was nice to try something different. I'll go back.
The most memorable dinner I've had in New Mexico in the last 33 years. Julian is at the top of his game and it looks like he's having a lot of fun being there. The staff is unpretentious and extremely knowledgeable about the menu and the wine selection. I'm looking forward to my next visit!
When a restaurant is a James Beard semi-finalist, I set the bar high for both food and service, so please consider that. I had reviewed the menu before arriving, and had an idea of what we would order. Happily, there were two appetizer specials that evening, and I wanted to try both of them. I asked the server to bring special 1 for me when my husband had his starter, special two for me when he had his first course, and to bring our entrees together. The server repeated it back to me, I repeated it back to her, and I thought we were good. Not so. My husband's starter came, and he was almost finished before the server came back to see how everything was. I asked about my starter, and she seemed surprised and confused. Then to get things caught up, she rushed out my starter, and shortly after, brought his first course, which would leave me eating my first course while he was waiting, which was not the intention. I asked her to just cancel my starter, but she insisted on bringing it. It was awkward, and it changed her attention to our table. The entrees arrived, and again, we were almost half way through before the table captain came over to check on us, and it was at this time I was able to tell him that 1) the roasted baby beets had grit in them, which was still in my molars, and 2) another baby veg, maybe a tiny squash, was not just roasted, it was charred and not edible. He apologized and offered to bring me more beets ... This is not the response I expected. He should have offered either 1) a whole new entree, if I wanted it 2) take the item off the bill 3) dessert on the house, or 4) an after dinner drink. But new beets?! The server finally came over, and quickly said "everything good here? great!" and scurried off. --- Food - the lobster salad was very nice, and the porcini bisque was outstanding, though a little overpriced at $24, I believe. The strawberry gazpacho is a bit gimmicky, and the $46 steak was just serviceable. Nothing else was really that special.
Excellent as always. Best wait staff in Santa Fe. We are hooked on the week end tasting menu. Really creative dishes and multiple courses. I would highly recommend adding the charcuterie course -- all meets are cured on site -- it it is outstanding. Very comfortable place and great food.
The best restaurant in Santa Fe, hands down, for four years running. Every dinner we have had there has been excellent. The menu is deceiving. Pork chop, salmon, steak, etc. Looks simple, not spectacular. But the pork chop was the best I have ever had, juicy, tender, coked perfectly and accompanied by foraged mushrooms, a roast peach slice, etc. creating a symphony of flavors that belong together, a superb dish. Brian is extremely knowledgeable about wine. He can discuss virtually any bottle with you and help you select the perfect wine for your taste and budget. David similarly. Both extremely nice and helpful. A new addition since we were there last is Julian. He oversaw the service, making sure the wait staff handled everything properly. Overall, Arroyo Vino is not to be missed if you are in Santa Fe.
We wanted to sit outside since the sunset was so beautiful.
We had beautiful service with two good servers.
The starters sounded incredible but didn't live up to the description.
The mushroom soup sounded great but it came out looking like gravy with a blob in it.
The salad was delicious.
The best item was the halibut with the corn dashi.
It was the best dish I have had all summer.
The lobster fra diablo was incredible!
We had a great time at a wonderful restaurant !
The wine choices were excellent .
Beautiful food. May have to wait a bit for the cocktails and plates, but worth the wait. The salmon and steak tartare are so complex and delicious. The eggplant main may be the most umami I've had in one dish. Their special was the foie Gras and lobster-tomato salad which were both excellent. Buy a bottle in the wine store for a good price and there's only a $30 corkage fee. The sommelier gave good recommendations and may have been the star of the show. Get reservations and go right now. A Santa Fe must-do-again.
Service was very disappointing. Very slow. Inattentive.
Actually we ask to be served our main course, waiter replied rather snippy even though we had been sitting with an empty table having already finished our salads for quite some time.
Fish entree was served room temperature, not warm.
Fish was very good but would have been so much better warm.
First time back after a year or two away. Back then Arroyo Vino had slipped in my and my friends' opinions. This evening I found everything about it to be spectacular. Both dishes, a beef tartare (with green curry, fried shallots, quail egg, etc. served with lettuce wrap) and a wild Alaskan halibut (in a sweet corn dashi with edamame and summer squash succotash) were beyond exceptional. Pricey, but not unreasonably so.
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
Arroyo Vino continues to set the bar for dining in Santa Fe. From the onsite garden, to the beautifully presented food, to the top-tier wine and beverage program Arroyo Vino is leading the pack. Make sure to get a reservation for a wonderful evening, or just pop by for a quick bite at the bar.
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.
