“Good food and service in an historic setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

We enjoyed eating an early dinner here after a day of skiing at Taos. The restaurant is a part of Taos Inn and the Adobe Bar is just across the lobby. Before dinner, we sat in the lobby just outside of the Adobe Bar and enjoyed the fountain and historic ambiance. Part of the building used to be a doctor's house and office. The food was excellent and the server was knowledgeable and accomodating. For starters we shared apple walnut salad and a rattlesnake rabbit sausage that was surprisingly good. For entrees, I had trout; one of us had veal short ribs and the other had chile rellenos, the house specialty. We all enjoyed our entrees. The chile rellenos were particularly good. For dessert we shared the mexican chocolate cream brulee that was delicious. After dinner, we walked around Taos a bit. A very pleasant evening. I would recommend this place to friends.

“Good atmosphere, delicious desserts”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

Service was good, entree menu choice uninspiring although food when it arrived was good. Dessert, chocolate roulade, was to die for.

“Doc Martin's does New Mexican”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

It is a toss up between the chile relleno or the blue corn chicken enchiladas. I could not decide so I got them both.

“Great ambience - worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

This restaurant is worth a visit for the ambience and the history of the building itself. The lobby bar is a great place for a pre dinner drink and to listen to some music. When we were there in March, the fireplaces were going - it was a great place to get in out of the wind. The food at Doc Martins was very good. My husband had an elk burger that was exceptional. I had a Wahoo special that was good, but not exceptional. The rabbit and rattlesnake sausage appetizer was really different and good. One of the members of our party had a filet mignon that was really excellent. The wine list was pretty good, and there were lower cost selections that were still really good (try the Buxom Blonde Chardonnay). Service was very good and attentive.
