Arroyo Vino Ratings and Reviews
I go to Arroyo Vino about once a month and hardly ever leave a review because the food, service, ambiance, and wine are uniformly excellent and I get bored writing the same review. However, the menu this time included an ahi tuna dish which I had to try because I had a home on the Big Island of Hawai'i for 17 years and loved eating ahi there. The dish was uniquely seasoned with a combination of Asian and Peruvian seasonings. It was truly better than anything I had in Hawai'i, including at Merriman's, my favorite restaurant there. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Ever since Brian came to Santa Fe Arroyo Vino has had a place as one of the very best restaurants here.
Great food from a marvelously talented young chef
My soft shell crab with Black squid tempura is the best I have ever eaten,
Obviously superior wines to match.
A must eat for Santa Fe
We enjoy this restaurant because we don't have to go into Santa Fe and deal with the traffic and difficulty parking. It is a fine dining experience without being stuffy. The servers are freindly and knowledgeable and the food is organic, local and creative. The wine list includes some unusual choices so it is an adventure. This time, celebrating a friend's birthday, the four of us chose the chef's prix fixe menu with the wine pairings (one wine pairing per couple since we are not huge drinkers). The special menu was very fun, we enjoyed all five courses, inventive but playful and delicious. Give it a try and enjoy!
Excellent food and great service make Arroyo Vino one of our favorite restaurants in Santa Fe. This visit we had an excellent calamari salad to share and two fish dishes. Both were super. Chef Colin continues to excel in providing fresh, locally produced food that is artfully presented.
Excellent in every way! Each dish was delicious, creative and beautifully plated. The staff was attentive and very knowledgeable from Jonathan's explanation of each dish, to David's wine recommendation. A delightful evening; don't miss a chance to dine at Arroyo Vino!
We had a wonderful dinner with outstanding food and service. The service staff members are all experienced. The chef creates beautiful, tasty and innovative dishes. We especially liked being able to pick out a great wine at the retail store and having it with our dinner in the restaurant. On our most recent trip to Santa Fe, the dinner here was the best we had.
The food was wonderful. The family tasting was well proportioned with the evening's pre-fix selection of tri-tip steak, grilled cauliflower, fresh beets and greens salad and dessert. There was plenty of food and the server, Damon, was excellent. We will be back.
Arroyo Vino was very good as usual. We had the Thursday night fixed menu served family style. These meals are unique in that they each have a different style of cuisine. This week it was Mexican. The first course included three different items with the corn tortilla tacos taking the show. They were excellent. Tri tip was the main coarse and it was cooked perfectly and served with three different salsas. The meal ended with a super chocolate desert that had a touch of chili in the sauce.
Overall, I was a little underwhelmed due to the chef's recent James Beard Award nomination. I had the evening special, quail with mediterranean spices, savory baclava, harissa sauce. The orange/yellow sauce was bland and the potato garnish were burnt. The bird was cooked very well and the harissa sauce addd a nice spice Exploding truffle was a fun surprise!
The first course came out rather quickly. We waited quite a long while for the main course to arrive. The length of our stay was great, pacing could use some work.
Our server was constantly in a rush. Splashed water several times in his hurry to fill our glasses. He seemed to be training for the speed walking olympic trials...it was extremely annoying to miss his attention in his hurry to scramble off or when he would hurriedly rush behind you tending to other tables.
I would recommend and may return. Given the quality of other food in town, it may be awhile till I venture back out to Las Campanas to eat at Arroyo Vino.
Overly ambitious, beautiful presentation with moderate success. Lamb meatball appetizer was very good, crispy and well seasoned. Prawns were tasty but a little too charred tasting. Octopus was extremely charred and overpowering. Chicken entree was flavorful but underwhelming. Sole entree was an unappetizing mess.
To start off with, as two young professional couples, we felt patronized by some of the staff and treated as though they assumed we did not have the means to be dining in their establishment. Before we even arrived, we were spoken down to over the phone. Then the same happened when we were selecting wine. It was very off-putting. We did enjoy our waiter's service, which is the basis for the 4 star service rating.
We visited during restaurant week which featured a prix fixe menu. We enjoyed the starter choices and the salad course - the beet (no I don't mean beef) tartare was the best dish I tried. However no one in our party was impressed with their entree, everything was overcooked and uninspired. I understand that they may have been unusually busy because of the event, but the entrees were chain-steakhouse quality at best, even if they had been properly cooked. It was disappointing at the prix fixe rate, and I definitely would not purchase those items at full price.
The service was absolutely amazing. We were attended to very well at all times. The vegetarian roll was excellent for the plant eater in our party. The sole was a bit overpowered by the way it was cooked and the balance of the plate. Desert was wonderful. Always a great spot to go for a special evening.
