Doc Martin's Restaurant Restaurant Review

: While located in the historic Taos Inn in the heart of town, Doc Martin’s should not be mistaken for a typical hotel dining room. The cuisine can be tough to pin down, but rest assured that the ingredients will be fresh and locally sourced and the resulting dishes delightful. The menu is split between lighter fare and entrées; in the former category, try the hearty green chile stew or the grilled rattlesnake-rabbit sausage; among the latter, the thick pork chop with posole abounds with flavor, and the Thai curry noodle bowl consists of an unruly mass of crispy, airy rice noodles atop a spicy curry, with your choice of tofu, chicken, shrimp or scallops. Desserts feature homemade ice creams, the wine list includes some rare gems, and the welcoming patio of the 200-year-old building offers a full roster of margaritas.

My Doc Martin Experience in Taos
by McDee on Fri Sep 04, 2009 3:37 pm
 
We had a party of 6 and decided to go to Doc Martins for dinner. All of us were amazed at how horrible the food was. I sent my meal back to the kitchen without replacing it.
Even after sending my food back to the kitchen and each and every one of us in our party of 6 complaining to the waitress about the quality of the food, neither the chef nor the manager came to our table to discuss the problem or even apologize.
I will never set foot in this place again and apparently I'm not the only one with this opinion. We were in there on a bustling Taos weekend evening for dinner and only 2 other tables had customers at them throughout our entire meal.
Looking back on my experience, the patio entrance was full of people sitting in a lovely atmosphere, however they were only eating chips with salsa and drinking the incredible margaritas. Not one of them went into the restaurant for dinner. They had their drinks and left. I should have learned from the locals and their apparent knowledge of this place.
I have no idea if Doc Martin's has a new chef, new management or what, but there's no excuse for preparing and serving this food at incredibly over inflated prices.
