I was tired after a long day on the road and visited the St. Clair Winery and Bistro as it was adjacent to the hotel I was staying in. I ordered the ribeye steak and was very pleased with the "hand-cut" portion I was provided. It was cooked to perfection (medium rare) and the garlic red mashed potatoes were very... More

The manager said their hamburgers are made of "the American version of Kobe beef". OK, if that's the secret it works for me; the St. Clair hamburger was equal to the best I've ever had. Cooked perfectly to order and just delicious! Also, I highly recommend the shoestring fries, they are so tasty! If you can, show up early for... More

Nice atmosphere, professional staff with decent wine. The food was more than adequate . Convenient and pleasant . Just can't say it meets the high praise of many of the reviews: not 5 stars but a solid 4.

Thanksgiving 2013 at the St. Clair Winery - we enjoyed a truly sumptuous buffet; it was such a pleasant experience that we invited a couple of friends to join us for the 2014 Thanksgiving meal. BIG, VERY BIG MISTAKE!!! We expected another buffet. Sorry folks, this year we serve a fixed menu so that we may offer a lower price.... More

First the ambience is nearly reason enough to stop by. We had been traveling all day and were quite tired, we considered take out and just eating in our hotel room but I wanted to take my wife somewhere nice and the Bistro was nearly next door to our hotel. We walked over and were very glad we did. They... More

We took some out of town guests here a few weeks ago and all of us were somewhat disappointed with the quality of our meal, or in this instance the lack of it. Unfortunately, the kitchen staff was having what seemed to be a "slammed" evening, at least that's what the server told us. I always thought that was a... More

Excellent friendly service, jazz musicians are GREAT and add to the inviting atmosphere. Food is interesting and routinely good. And they know their wine and are really helpful in making a selection. Highly recommend this place.

Stopped by chance for lunch. Very good Chardonnay. Wife ordered a gnocchi with a very tasty bolognese sauce (smoky flavor). I had southwest pasta with green chiles, chicken in a buttery sauce. Very flavorful. Good choice. Bought a gift certificate for our daughter who lives in ABQ so she can enjoy it. Btw - fresh bread with melted Parmesan and... More

First stop in Albuquerque but had no idea it was going to be so good. The atmosphere was really nice with jazz music playing in the background. The wine was great (cab) and the food was amazing. I even brought a bottle of wine back for my sister
