This is by far the best restaurant in Albuquerque. It has a small, seasonal menu, excellent wine list and excellent service.

The menu choices had a lot of variety too them. The service was great and the atmosphere was upscale. The one concern was that a party of more than four can not have their check split. "We were from multiple states and needed separate checks. The waitress refused to do that and offered very little help in that respect. It... More

It may be a challenge to locate their parking area (which is off an alley in the back), but it is worth the challenge! They use local produce/meats, begin the meal with a locally grown appetizer and the menu changes seasonally. My husband opted for the grilled radicchio salad/ grilled tuna which was fabulous! I had the medallion of tomatoes... More

We dined at Jennifer James, both anticipating a very nice dinner, but were disappointed. The carrot ginger soup was so strong it was nearly inedible. If I had blind-tasted the soup I would not have known that there were carrots in it. The chickpea fries starter with a couple of dipping sauces was nice. My husband enjoyed his pheasant though...

The food is locally grown, organic and the chef is astounding. The atmosphere is simple but lovely. You can tell it is a favorite for many locals. Beer and wine prices are a little high. I'd have additional options if i were them.

Had the 2010 Luigi Righetti, ‘Capitel de Roari’, Amarone della Valpolicella, Nice surprises on wine list. Hands down one of the best meals between ABQ & San Francisco. Great open kitchen and very friendly service. Relaxed and casual vibe... More

It's always a treat when we eat here. Jennifer has long been Albuquerque's crown jewel of a chef and she is still firing on all cylinders. Our duck was simply delicious and the service is always perfect.

Not sure where the folks ate that left the couple of negative reviews (or where they are accustomed to dining), but I found Jennifer James 101 absolutely delightful. Loved the deviled eggs, watermelon salad, and tomato salad - interesting flavors and fresh. I enjoyed a perfectly prepared Halibut as my entree and it was delicious. Service was impeccable. This is... More

This place has a lot of hoopla and not much to support it really. The decor was ok, the service acceptable. But my duck was chewy and basically had little flavor. And to serve it with peaches did not make much sense to me. Maybe the other dishes are better but I have no urge to go back. And it's... More

Well noted as one of Albuquerque's finest restaurants, Jennifer James 101 was a huge disappointment for me. I took a friend and we both had terrible food, preparation lacking and just plain not edible. We did not eat everything and we did not take it with us. The friend had the buffalo steak, tough and not even seasoned well. Everyone... More
