A nice Mothers' Day treat!

Mom was treated to the brunch on HER day and all enjoyed the meal. A bit hectic, as all restaurants are on this day. Chelsea, our waitress, was wonderful!! The food was good and plentiful...all items replaced quickly when running low. Carved beff was a favorite...breakfast items were good as well... read more

We stopped here after driving up here. Warm weather allowed us to sit outside. I scored with sweet wine flight. Wife wasn't a fan of the white flight. The meals and atmosphere were amazing. Highly recommend.

Atmosphere is great. Service was really good. Food was delicious. And the wine selection can't be beat. Had 2 managers come by and check on us to see if everything was good. Even other servers would come by and check on us.

We were stuck in a nearby hotel for 7 days of day long meetings. The hotel food was barely ok and most of the other walking-distance-eateries were all SouthWest Mexican and either way over spiced or not spiced at all. Then we found St. Clair. The first meal was absolutely delicious and the service (server: Katie) was attentive, friendly, gracious,... More

What can I say good food, good service, great atmosphere and reasonably priced. We sat outside on the terrace and there was a 3 piece band that were great. The food came just at the right speed between courses and there was a good choice of wine. Overall a lovely evening - thanks guys.

We have frequented this restaurant numerous times and this time the service was bad, to say the least and the food was ok! The wait staff was not attentive at all and we felt we were cramping his style. The food was dry and undercooked as if it was just thrown on a plate and served late! The potatoes were... More

The atmosphere, service, and food were excellent. I took friends who had not been there before. Of course, the wines were wonderful, but the food was wonderful as well. The ribeye steaks were great. One friend had the green chili pasta. This is a restaurant which will stay on our list of fine dining at a moderate price in Albuquerque.

Went here for lunch after hearing many good things. It's definitely hard to get past a bad first impression of service. Upon being seated a kinda cool idea is to have servers offer a small sample of the day's featured wine to those at the table. Upon noting all other tables being offered this tasting we inquired of our server... More
