OpenTable Diner (New Mexico)

Food was good had the fried chicken but the biscuit was baked differently from what I was used too. But still quite good, exceptional service and staff wonderful. Went during New Mexico Restaraunt week. Good value.

Our dinner was lovely. The fried Chicken was to die for. The Fennel Orange bread was homemade and incredible as well as the boursin biscuit served with the chicken. As we spoke to other diners we learned that is owned by a mother/father and son. Everyone we spoke to had been coming there for years. They have a loyal following which makes me think that the quality does not change.
It was an all round great evening. We may start becoming regulars ourselves. I highly recommend.

The setting and lighting is very well done and the service was good, I like the team service it reminds me of how good service used to be in nice places. The food was well presented and nice and warm, however the dish I had was very bland, no flavor hardly at all, the Marsala sauce was very thin and barley an taste, the veal was think and not browned at all. Not a real veal Marsala by any means, the mashed potatoes were brown and the vegetables overcooked for my liking, my day would of enjoyed then that soft. My partners meal was better, the trout was cooked well and tasted good but they could pull the skin and add a sauce to make it really good. The wine list was good and the pours were very good, I would try it again because much of the experience was enjoyable and we had a great table, and the bananas fosters looked wonderful even though we did not have any.

We were having my birthday dinner with friends. There were four of us. We thoroughly enjoyed our food and our waitress (cute with little ponytails on sides of her head) was delightful and so helpful. wish I could remember her name.
I would tell you to get your roof fixed. We had to move our table because water was dripping on my husband's head. Sort of hilarious at a fine dining restaurant. But all was good once the table was out of the way of the drip.
We are pretty easy going, but some folks might get offended with the drip at a fine dining establishment. Just saying ....

Great food selection, love the Ambiance! Loved the Live music , Spanish guitar! I have been there at least four times in the last two months. I recommend your restaurant to everyone! Thank you!

We ate at Dinner for Two on Valentine's evening and had an enjoyable dinner, albeit somewhat disappointed that the restaurant only offered a rather pricey fixed menu that included a somewhat limited choice of appetizers, main courses, and desserts. I guess that I should have anticipated this, but was disappointed not to have been able to order from a more extensive menu that would have offered greater choices without having to pay for desserts that we generally do not eat. The food was well prepared and very good. I will return to this restaurant on evenings where I can order from the menu rather than a fixed holiday menu.

Two thumbs up! Dinner is always above average at Dinner For Two. The dining is mostly quiet, with lights on the dimmer side, it can be romantic if that is the occasion. Highly recommended by all I know whom have been there. The wine list is a little pricey though. Enjoy!

Excellent food, first rate. Our waiter didn't seem to be as attentive as the others and we waited with no greeting upon entering. But definitely worth the trip. Yum!
