Dinner for Two (or D42, as it is known to some) is a family owned and operated restaurant that has been around for many years. The menu is varied, but there are definitely some items that are more special than others, starting with the addictive homemade bread that will greet you when you sit down (although I would still prefer...

Quality of meal was perfect. Large portion of meat. Great bread. The only point that could have been better is that the prime rib special was not rare enough. We ordered rare and it wasn't available. The server said he gave us the rarest and it was medium. It would have been better to come back and say what was... More

My husband and I didn't want to go far and literally stumbled upon the very plain entrance. It was 5:30 pm and the sign said Happy Hour till 6:30. We had prime rib sliders and the most amazing seared beef with chili cream sauce and awesome beer on tap. We will go back for dinner for sure.

This is an intimate romantic place for dinner and we met the owners who we like very much. The bread what's a specially made Christmas bread that evolved from fruitcake- wonderful. Our entrées, crabcakes and coconut shrimp were delicious – best crabcakes I have had ever, very light. However, the ny strip I ordered was pretty tough as was the... More

The DFT menu is not extensive but very eclectic. Beef stroganoff, veal marsala, stuffed fried chicken, and chateaubriand are among the selections, for example. The chef created beautiful presentations, but the food was no better than average at this price point. Here's what I mean. I had the French onion soup. It was the most gorgeous soup bowl you ever...

My wife and I stumbled on this place last night, and we're so glad we found this treasure. Don't be fooled by the outside of the building. It is quite charming and romantic on the inside. We had the dinner special that included crab cakes, shrimp and salmon. It was scrumptious! It included French onion soup and dessert. And believe... More

This is one of the restaurants that rank so high there needs to be a different category. This is the best food in Santa Fe. It is not Mexican or New Mexican. It is fabulous. Crab cakes are perfect. The calamari ceviche was a wonderful surprise. The beef tips are served with green chili queso. I suggest getting bread for... More

Dinner for Two is a misnomer, and frankly I think they ought to change the name since it had a lot of tables for 4 in the main dining area and could accommodate a larger group of people. The building is located so close to the street that you would think it would have a lt of traffic noise, but... More
