We had dinner at Doc Martin's in early November. The restaurant is located in the historic Taos Inn and the interior is very comfortable & attractive. We had the seasonal veggie platter - and not only was everything delicious, but it looked like a work of art. Our server was terrific and very kind. (We ate an early dinner, but otherwise reservations are recommended).
I've been coming to Taos since 1985 and always make sure to have a meal at Doc Martin's near the plaza. The menu changes seasonally, but the food is always fresh and tasty, perhaps because so much of it comes from local farms, according to the server we had on our last visit. Doc's is in the Taos Inn, and the ambience is definitely historic, with it's adobe walls and latilla ceilings. The servers are knowledgable and friendly; many have been here for years and recognize returning visitors -- a nice feeling. It was at Doc's that I tried buffalo for the first time. And Doc's recently offered a rattlesnake-rabbit sausage in an ancho chile-cherry sauce. It was amazing. For the less adventurous, they were at last visit serving everything from chile rellenos to bbq ribs to t-bone steaks and fresh halibut. If you get a chance to talk to the wine steward, he'll direct you to a wine that will match your taste and budget. I was impressed that he truly enjoyed his job. And if you are there early in the day, don't miss their blueberry and blue corn hotcakes! For me, it just wouldn't be a trip to Taos without eating at Doc's.
I recently dined at Doc Martins Restaurant and the food is excellent! I really enjoyed the fresh local organics and southwestern infusion into the Contemporary American Fare.
I had crispy quail in an asian soy sauce with wild mushrooms for appetizers. Awesome!
Great wines accompanied my main course of a Buffalo Strip Steak in a spicy bourbon sauce with garlic/shallot mashed potatoes.
Dessert... Hello! Fresh berry cobbler and homemade ice cream. Yummy!
Eat at Doc's - Your tummy and palette will be blessed.
PS.. This restaurant is also located in a really cool historic hotel (The Taos Inn) and has free live entertainment nightly in the lobby. Very cool!
As a vegetarian it can be hard to find meatless foods at restaurants. At Doc Martins, i was able to find a unique selection of vegetarian food. i had a really good tofu dish for breakfast which i had never seen before(tofu maple scramble). the staff was attentive and service was prompt. also for breakfast at doc martins theres a wide selection of sides, instead of just toast, theres muffins, scones, breads, and all sorts of different choices. doc martins is in a really cool part of town, and its located in the oldest hotel in taos. its really good and i would recommend it to anyone.
Doc Martins Restaurant is a classic in Taos and known to consistently give good service and food. I can't believe some of the other reviews here. I would highly suggest this establishment to family and friends for authentic new mexican, southwestern and American foods. The wine list is one of the premier lists in all of northern NM and an award winner. Might I add the Chille rellenos and game meats served are fantastic. Doc's also specializes in local organics and boasts there own pastry chef. My service was wonderful and the location is perfect in the heart of historic old town Taos.
Ignore the other reviews and give this place a try.
Well worth it and it is a true Taos experience.
The free music in the Hotel Lobby and Adobe Bar is also a treat.
Our family dined here during the holidays. The ambience is lovely. The bathroom in the hotel was messy. The food though good was very expensive for the quality. One potato dish had part of a rotten potato in it. The food took awhile to be served.
Our waiter was not at all concerned about our experience, the food was overpriced and tasted like trash. It was not what I expected at all according to the hype in town! There are much better places to eat in Taos than Doc's.
