Santa Fe Restaurants

315 Restaurant & Wine Bar

Updated 12/04/2013

Fodor's Review

As if it were on a thoroughfare in Paris rather than on Old Santa Fe Trail, 315 has a Continental, white-tablecloth sophistication, but the offbeat wall art and unfussy ambience gives it a light, fun feel. Chef-owner Louis Moskow uses traditional techniques to prepare contemporary French bistro fare using organic vegetables and locally raised meats. Daily specialties on the ever-evolving menu might include squash-blossom beignets with local goat cheese, basil-wrapped shrimp

with apricot chutney and curry sauce, or grilled boneless lamb loin with crispy polenta, spring vegetables, and green peppercorn sauce. The garden patio opens onto the street scene. There's also a wine bar with an exceptional list of vintages and light snacks, like crispy monkfish "nuggets" and house-made tater tots with wasabi tobiko caviar and crème fraîche.

My Favorite Restaurant

This is the first review I have written for 315, but I have eaten numerous meals there. Every time I walk in the door Kim or Felix or someone is there to greet me and welcome me with a smile and if no one is there walk into the bar and be comfortable! First let me say that not one restaurant in Santa Fe, maybe New Mexico has a wine list that matches this one. Every wine on this list is carefully selected by the Chef/Owner Louis Moskow, who is very

knowledgable about the wines and obviously the food. The Chef in the kitchen, Titin, is talented and has learned under Louis for many years. Babs, one of the amazing team members of his staff has been there since the beginning and everyone else does not fall remotely short of wonderful either! I have to say that the new spring menu is refreshing and quite delightful on the palate. Start with fresh oysters, any one of the salads, a new charcuterie, then onto a rabbit special with andouille and spatzle, a delicate pasta that you could have supplemental clams in, a half chicken with farmers market veggies... I could go on and on. Side note: his menu offers many gluten free dishes and vegetarian options. One of my favorite new specials is a dish with morels, ramps, fiddleheads and a sweet pea cream, the bomb! As you know from this review thus far, I love the food and the wine, but for those of you who may not be enamored by wine try taking a look at the bar list. Ok, so the Whiskey selection is again, one of if not the best whiskey selections in Santa Fe with a Four Roses selection, Bookers, Blantons, Oban, Michters, EH Taylor on and on... wether you love scotch, bourbon, rye or blends this is the place for it. I also know as of late Louis has been slowly and carefully expanding his tequilas and mescal! Also, if you are looking for a place that can offer a little more casual or friend focused scene start in the bar! There is a bar menu that offers 5 plates for $35 dollars! Keep in mind that the fabulous patio will be opening sometime this month which adds a green and floral backdrop for you and your guests. I might seem a little over enthused, but seriously this is a fabulous restaurant that has been operating for almost 20 years in a town that consistently opens and closes restaurants. It is worth a try and if for some reason your experience is less than acceptable Louis and the team at 315 will make sure that your next time will be unforgettable!

Wonderful Bistro

Perfect steak. Pleasing appetizers. One of the best wine lists in Santa Fe. Attentive service. Restaurant is small - but it just makes you feel even more that you could be in Paris.

Consistently excellent

My wife and I have eaten at 315 many, many times and it is one of our very favorite restaurants in Santa Fe. It is cozy, the food is excellent, and it's very popular with the local crowd. We recommend it to our friends as a special place that can take you away to France, or simply let you snuggle into Santa Fe, below the glitterati level.

Eat here last because nothing else can compare!

Just came back from a great visit in Santa Fe and had a wonderful lunch here. Try the butternut squash pasta with the truffles, it was too die for! Friend had the shrimp which was also amazing. Can't wait to return to Santa Fe and Bistro 315!
