Dinner for Two Ratings and Reviews
We did not have a good experience. The menu was prix fixe, consisting of soup, entree and dessert, with salads and appetizers available at an additional charge. But, if you wanted to order a la carte the prices of the entrees were not shown on the menu. One of us did order the prix fixe menu and the food wasn't good (they even managed to make grilled salmon taste bad). The bread looked good but we weren't offered any - maybe it's an additional charge, but they could still have asked if we wanted any.
i was disappointed in the service; we were two females and had to ask for service a number of times; the Cesar salad prepared at the table was less than spectacular ( had it several months ago and it was very good); large table next to us - seemed to get better service
Overall disappointed with this visit; previous visit quite good
After reading such great reviews on this restaurant, I was a little skeptical about whether or not it would live up to such praise. Well I can honestly say it did!! From our waitress to the ambiance, to the food and wine which were exceptional, this place is special. I was also pleased with their prices, I don't feel for fine dining they were outrageous at all, given they are very close to the plaza.
We had a wonderful table side dinner at Dinner for Two. It was our first visit but certainly wouldn't be our last. We had the Tableside châteaubriand For two. Which the chef prepared perfectly. Two tables away had the table side Caesar salad. It looked WONDERFUL and we heard positive comments from the table. We will have that on our next visit.
When you go you MUST, save room for the home made PIES. A true delicacy that is slipping away. From the culanary scene.
The chef and his wife and I assume the whole kitchen works hard on these home delights. Also they had a nice wine list including half bottles of wine which I appreciate because my wife like white and I like red.
We have dined here several times, and have always been very well pleased with our meals. No lamb option was a big disappointment for one of us. Service was not up to your standard. The live music was very nice! The Caesar salad and veal piccata were excellent. The rib eye wasn't. Bread delicious.
Our visit started in a hot bar area and a warm glass of white wine. Fortunately, we persevered and made it to the meal. The food was delicious and the flambe options for salad and dessert were delicious and fun! Sunday nights are the best deal...you get an appetizer, meal and dessert for $25. Be warned, a lot of the entrees and options are an upcharge, but still a great deal. The ambience was okay...a little warm and crowded, but the service was awesome, considering the restaurant was packed!
D42 Sunday dinner can't be beat. A nice menu for $25 which includes a delicious soup, entree and dessert. Ask for the daily pie choices - the butterscotch pie was great. Nice wine list, some can be pricey and there are some gems on the list for a great value.
always a nice place to go do; however I wish they would use less salt on the food.
sauce for the friend chickem, while tasty, so salty as to be inedible.
in the past, while getting other dishes, I asked that no salt be added; however if you are getting food with a sauce there is no guarantee, and you will be thirsty that night. :-(
This restaurant was very disappointing. We choose it because it was listed as romantic and because of the many gluten free choices we thought it would be easy to accommodate our allergies which I included in the reservation. We were disappointed on both accounts.
Ambience very nice. Our table was very close to another table of 4, so it was fairly noise. Service was not great, perhaps the wait staff was overloaded. We had the Caesar salad for 2, prepared at the table. Huge portions, but just fair quality. The food here was just not that great.
Local establishment which leads to noisy and warm eating areas; because of the crowds, service is not capable of being top notch despite efforts: ex. Wine not brought to table until after first course already half eaten;
excellent food however waiter informs us of numerous items being gone.
The service could not have been better, the grass fed organic ribeye steak was so tender and perfectly seasoned, served with "frizzled onions", mashed potatoes and sweet snap peas, along with a dash of their homemade barbecue sauce; amazing! They serve warm from the oven bread that is crispy on the outside, but not "cut the roof of your mouth" crispy, and delightful soft and tasty in the center; they also sell their tasty bread by the loaf for $3.00! They have freshly baked pies, they change every couple of days, but today (let's see how good my memory is), there was key lime, lemon meringue, blueberry, cherry, almond joy, and butterscotch! Feel like I may have forgotten one, but we resisted the pies and instead shared bananas foster for two, prepare at our table. Oh my; sinfully delicious! I think every one dining tonight decided to enjoy this delectable dessert once they saw it prepared for on group of diners.
Dinner for Two, is a small cozy restaurant with an amazing chef preparing tastebud frenzy meals! I wish we had found it earlier in our visit to Santa Fe.
Absolutely terrific food - the quality was comparable to some outstanding dining I have experienced in Charleston, SC and New Orleans (I am absolutely serious, obviously not the same type of low country or gulf fare), but the quality and preparation were superb. The pies warranted a second trip back the next night for dessert. On Guadalupe, very convenient to the Hilton and El Dorado hotels although not listed on "the map". The next time we are in Santa Fe, we will return, guaranteed - highly recommend.
Lots of great choices on the menu, always at least 3 or 4 items I really can't decide between! Love the food and the service and the fact that the kitchen is open and the chef always asks you how your meal was on your way out the door! You know he cares!
If this isn't enough, the homemade pies are to die for. I want to Go just for our and coffee sometime soon.
I haven't been here in many years. WE came in for the 1/2 price appetizers but with 4 of us there isn't seating that is conducive for conversation for 4. There is one table for four but it was reserved. The people never showed up. So it sat empty. Too bad. I will reserve it next time and show up or call if I can't. Good food and drinks were excellent. Great rum raisin table bread. OMG, amazing. We will return soon.
Overall, not up to Santa Fe standards.
Seafood was creatively prepared but bland nonetheless.
Calamari ceviche wasn't anything like ceviche.
Hostess was abrupt and never smiled. When bananas Foster was prepared tableside, the waiter spent the entire time talking to a trainee rather than addressing us. Really detracted from the experience. We had discount materials which we presented when the bill came. The waiter criticized us for not telling him about it when we ordered. Also, the discounts were not fully given. We mentioned to the waiter that the food was disappointing. Only got a superficial apology.
However---the guitar music was excellent.
Won't return. Don't recommend others come here. Too many excellent restaurants in town.
It has been a year or so since we had been to this restaurant which used to be a favorite. Sadly we were disappointed in multiple dishes and meals. The Caesar salad was bland. The stuffed Trout has so little stuffing it was hard to find. The veal piccata was fair and a good portion but needed more lemon. Bread was wonderful as were the desserts.
The food was delicious. The setting was romantic. The staff was very friendly. They were ready for us when we arrived. Their meal price was good for what you got. However, it was more food than we needed. (However, that was our fault, because we ordered an hors d'oeuvres to go with our meal). We had to take dessert to go because we were just too full.
