Great service, ambiance and view!

When I'm traveling, I like as many meals with ambiance as possible. Wendall's had great food and awesome view of the lake and mountains.

This excellent restaurant deserves to have its name spelled correctly: it is not Wendall's, but it is correctly spelled Wendell's. I posted a review on the Inn of the Mountain Gods site. The dining room is beautifully arranged and furnished. Please read my review in the designated site.

Inn of the Mountain Gods strives to be a world-class resort experience, and they do not disappoint. Wendall's, the on-site restaurant, is top-notch dining from beginning to end. The restaurant is immaculate and affords diners spectacular views of Sierra Blanca, the storied peak above the historic Apache homelands. Sunsets are picture-perfect. The service is terrific and attentive, without being pushy.... More

This quiet upscale yet relaxed restaurant was a wonderful retreat from the world. The menu and wine list are excellent, and our wait staff was attentive, friendly and efficient. I have some dietary restrictions, and the Chef created a wonderful choice for me. Highly recommend an evening at Wendall's

Surprised to find how good it was compared to restaurants in Dallas, NYC, San Francisco, Washington DC, London, Paris, Bangkok, Tokyo, etc, etc. If you are in Ruidoso and can afford it, the overall value arithmetic of this restaurant can not be beat. Thank you Patti for having taken good care of us.

During our recent stay at the Inn of the Mountain Gods we made reservations through Open Table and dined there our first night. For some odd reason it took more than two hours to complete our dining experience. It was a Tuesday night in February which isn't a particularly busy time. There were three waiters and 9 tables of people,... More

Disappointing. Since it was a higher scale restaurant, I thought the food would be better than it was. Our ceasar salads were not the freshest lettuce. My fish was good, the lamb was pretty tough, and the filet wasn't a filet cut of beef. It was bi-lobed and tough. To their credit, the waitstaff took care of us and removed... More

Alex was our waiter this evening and he was amazing. He gave excellent recommendations (I know I enjoyed my food) and our drinks were never empty. He was polite, courteous and I could definitely tell he was aware of our pace of meal. He did a wonderful job. If you are on a date request Alex as your server at... More
