Fabulous salads & wine flights

After two days and nights spent feasting on New Mexican food, we needed a lighter meal. The menu at the St Clair looked good. We split two salads - the kale-brussels sprouts (very good) and the spinach with other good stuff (fabulous). I had red wine flights, husband had an excellent Malpais... read more

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

We went here for a dinner on a Tuesday as a family. With our 3 and 5 year old daughters with us, we weren't sure how we would do here, but we were made to feel very welcome. They have a nice affordable kids menu, too. Definitely recommend this. The patio is gorgeous!

Good food, excellent place to try wine or meet and greet. Wine was not expensive and made locally. Do serve flights if you are interested in trying different wines. Have a wine store to buy a bottle if you like it and they have them priced to move. Lots of extras also for sale. Food Fare was good, fresh and... More

A friend suggested that we meet for dinner at the St. Clair Winery and Bistro. It was a charming place that offered a variety of seating options both indoor and out.

Can't quite understand some of the complaints from the previous reviews. The staff were friendly and proficient, the four people at our table really enjoyed their various dishes and the flights of wines were enjoyable, especially the Petit Verdot. :-). The only thing I found less than ideal was the overall noise level.

The food is good. My complaint with respect to the food is that their menu has very limited choices. The food was tasty but not special. The wines are bad. I tried the Gewuerztraminer and the Sauvignon Bland. Both were bad.
