Great wine list, even better out door dining. Menu is not large which is good. Five of us sat down for dinner after a hard days days work. Everyone was impressed. I had the meat loaf and it was king size meal. Good wait staff.

We were looking for a light dinner with wine - near our hotel (Hotel Albuquerque). Lovely evening so we walked. We chose to sit outside. The waitress was very attentive while handling several other tables. Two of us chose salads (good size) and one chose a salad with salmon. Choices of dressings included some local additions that include agave. Wines... More

First time for dinner at St. Clair and it was quite good. I had the Pasta Danielle and my companion had the Macaroni and Cheese. We shared plates to enjoy each of the dishes. My pasta had a light creamy "southwestern" sauce - a creamy chili sauce and the mac and cheese had four cheeses with green chile. The green... More

The waitress was very good at describing the wines' character. The food was tasty and the ambiance is convivial. I would have given a higher rating but the hostess was a bit rude. We stayed at Hotel ABQ across the street so it was nice to have a good restaurant within walking distance.

My husband and I have been coming here for many years and my previous review sang its praises. It's our stand-by when we don't know where else to go. This was our first visit since the remodel and it looks really good - much more contemporary and brighter. The menu has changed somewhat over the years, but our favorites remain.... More

I have been coming here for years and was quite surprised in a good way last time in. The restaurant looks chic and elegant and the bartender and wait staff were also a higher caliber than what I have encountered before. White wines were nicely chilled and red wine presentation was top notch. Just had a dinner salad and bowl... More

Wonderful selection of foods with local ingredients, sort of local twists on old favorites. I had the southwestern meatloaf, which is made with grass-fed beef, famous Hatch, New Mexico, green chiles, and a chipotle barbecue sauce. It was served with skin-on baked potatoes and green beans (quite crisp so if you don't like them that way, you should probably let... More

This clean gem of a bistro has excellent wine and fresh food. I have to eat gluten free, and they were able to accommodate my restrictions without a problem. Bistro was right near our hotel and was an excellent choice for lunch, dinner and of course a glass of wine. There is also another bistro in Los Cruces which was... More

I hate to give a bad review to what may be a lovely restaurant based on one visit, but I would hope that someone at the restaurant would see this and do something about it. I was with a group of six and after our waiter took our order and delivered our food we never saw him again. This would... More
