I visit Santa Fe at least one a year and always dine at The Compound. I love the atmosphere and never have a meal that I do not enjoy. This time around I tried the Lamb Shank. Since the menu changes with each season, I look forward to

Beautiful restaurant, exquisite food, stunning wine list. Tucked away off Canyon Road. Great service, too. Everything you order is bursting with flavour. Our dinners there have always been superb. My favorite dish is the Seared veal chop with grilled corn cream. Everything is beautifully executed.

My friend who lives in Santa Fe described this as one of the best restaurants. It was certainly one of the most over priced. We were shocked that the arugula salads we ordered had a fried onion ring stuck on top. The waiter told us that the chef had just acquired fresh morel mushrooms from Oregon which influenced our choice of the braised veal osso bucco for the main course. Well, sadly, the morel mushrooms were coated and fried which totally destroyed the flavor and made them almost unrecognizable. The cous cous (supposedly Israeli but more like Palestinian) was bland as were the fava and peas mixed in. The osso bucco was tender and seasoned well.The waiter was friendly and did his best to compensate for a $200 meal (including wine) that was barely worth half of that amount. We doubt we would return.

My wife and I tried it for lunch. Horrendous and insulting is the only way to describe it. Her entree was a seafood salad. The salad consisted of about 4 lettuce leaves with what looked like a few seafood scraps that had fallen off someone's table. I had a vegetarian risotto. This was about a teacup's size portion. Neither dish had any detectable seasoning. The waitress did not give a hoot. At the table next to us, the lady sent her dish back to the kitchen twice, then they left without eating. The chairs felt like medieval torture instruments. The owner was there schmoozing with some friends, so they do not even have the excuse that it would have been a day that he's off. Basically, a normal person would have to order two full meals to feed himself, but if you have a hearty appetite, you would need three! What a sick joke.

Pros: There were no shootings or stabbings while we were there

Cons: Everything else

A refreshing dining experience which sets itself apart from the pack by its simplistic white walls adorned with fresh flowers and bright colors. The Compound serves up classically good food of great quality.

This is by far the worst restaurant we have been to in our life. There was one waiter who was terrible and very very rude. Looked like he was their main waiter. If you are not an artist or someone who looks like you are not from Santa Fe or if you dress casual, he will give you his special "rude" treatment. Disgusting place. The other waiters are very nice and try to make up for this moron. But it is too late. By the time your $30+ entree arrives you will be insulted by this waiter. The bill was over $100. The food very average. I have been to pricey restaurants all over the world but nowhere did I get treated like we did at the compound. I will never set foot in that place.

By far the worst dining experience I've had in recent memory. At best a novice attempt into the world of fine dining. I've traveled the globe and have never seen a less knowledgable wait staff (icluding in 3rd world nations). Our server had not the first clue about customer service, and attempted to convince our table that a bottle of wine that had obviously turned was "A-OK in his book". The bufoon of a head waiter quickly removed the bottle from our table, but kept it on the bill. Management's attempt to remedy the situation was laughable. The food was mediocre, and for the quality was over priced. You could not pay me to dine there again.

We have been here at least a half a dozen times and it is the best restaurant in Santa Fe (other excellent choices are Geronimo, Santa Cafe and Inn at Anazzai). The food is reasonably priced for a 5 star restaurant and it has the best dessert in Santa Fe (the liquid chocalate cake). Beautiful ambiance and outstanding service.
