The terrible service affected my Christmas spirits... We had to call our waiter to take orders! Our party of 12 were roundly disgruntled. The food was only passable, with obviously canned ingredients in some cases (even the children noticed). Plus the wine list was overpriced...More

Bland bread is a dead giveaway of any restaurant. The entrees were insipid and uninspired. But the prices were outstanding (as in high). In this economy, that won't do.

Just finished a horrible meal. Overcooked duck breast swimming in raspberry sauce. The accompanying vegetables were improperly prepared. Appetizer of quail was dry. My companion had a loin of elk, which itself was fine, but the sides were overcooked snap peas and mashed sweet potatoes...More

Ristra was recently hyped in the New York Times as a restaurant to try while visiting Santa Fe. After an ill attempt to even get seated, I have to ask why anyone would bother with this depressing little place. The restaurant is located in what...More

I just returned from a week-end in Santa Fe where I had a wonderful meal at the Santacafe and a not so wonderful meal at Ristra. The sea bass was not good. I told the waitress just so the restaurant would know and maybe would...More
