Doc Martin's has a reputation for being one of the best restaurants in the area. Others we spoke with weren't so positive about this restaurant, but we thought it was great. The food was well prepared, tasty, and reasonably priced (for a nicer, more expensive restaurant). The menu included a range of interesting choices. Service was good and the setting was very nice. There is live music most nights in the Adobe Bar that connects to the restaurant.

I've eaten at Doc Martin's about 4 times in the last month and a half, three of those times for Sunday brunch. The food has been outstanding. Huevos rancheros, and the blue corn pancakes are a couple of my favorite items. Would give them 5 stars overall, but this past Sunday Jan 15, service was particularly slow. We arrived around 1:00. No one there to greet us at the host station for several minutes. Then a long wait before our order was taken, and rather long before our food arrived. It's such a pleasant atmosphere that we passed the time in conversation. But it would have helped immensely to have been served coffee while we waited. But that didn't happen until just before the food arrived. The waitress was pleasant, but seemingly deliberately ignored us much of the time for other priorities. It felt like triage in a medical emergency where overwhelmed hospital personnel have to make a decision about who gets treated and who does not. No one was rude, but not apolegetic either. I'm assuming they were unexpectedly short-staffed, as on my other visits service was great. I'll forgive them this time.

Went there do Saturday brunch in January. Maybe they only offer a limited menu during the slow season. They only offered half of what was posted on their on-line Sat/Sun brunch menu - so not really a full choice of breakfast items. However, the food was good and the service was superb - very attentive.

We always make it a point to eat and drink at the Adobe Bar in the Taos Inn. The Adobe Bar's kitchen is Doc Martin's, which is the hotel's restaurant. The bar has live music most nights, good drinks, and a nice short menu, but you can order anything off of the Doc Martin's menu.

Most people start out with the nachos, but I prefer the bar burrito smothered in green chile. I have also had the chile rellone appetizer and it is quite good. Paired with a fine non-vintage Negra Modelo beer and I am a happy camper.

This restaurant was once "fine dining", but these days the menu has become much more relaxed. The service is usually very good. We have had many delicious meals here. My favorite is the "Kit Carson" that has two poached eggs served on a yam biscuit and covered with red chile. After the clock strikes 12:00 noon on Sunday, order one of their great Bloody Mary's with your meal. In the evening, enjoy a wide variety of live bands (no cover charge!) in the beautiful lounge, sample the margarita menu, and soak in the ambience of the "living room of Taos".
