Close to Old Town... pretty good value

Nice decor... menu selection pretty good... wine flights offered... had the 8 oz Sirloin... it was just so-so... wouldn't use the term 'tender' -- but the taste was pretty good.

It's a pity we only spent one night in Albuquerque because I would have liked to dine here again. The food is great! I order gnocchi bolognese which was delicious and my hubby had meatball marinara which he thoroughly enjoyed.

This is a popular place. You will be offered a taste of any of their wines. The Southwestern Meat Loaf is really good. Actually everything is good. I like the parmesan fries. It can be a little noisy at times but not too bad.

We were traveling in between sites and found this place. It was delightful! Nice decor, friendly staff and really good food but the wine is amazing! Anyone out there that knows even just a little bit about wine would enjoy this place. They were so informative and if they didn't have the answers they found out. We learned that like... More

Had eaten in many of the resteraunts in old town and would rate this one near the top. Excellent menu selection. Appreciated the ambiance and the service was first class. The salmon was fresh properly cooked and was of much lighter fare that other items on the menu. I will bring others here when the opportunity presents itself

The wine is amazing! I like to take home at least 6 bottles as we cannot get it where we live. Service was good. Trent, our waiter, was knowledgeable about the menu and was great with our kids. I recommend ordering a couple of flights of wine so you can taste a few before you buy. If you love wine... More

Great wine, several wine flights to choose from, food was excellent, sat at bar and service was great. 3 piece trio playing live jazz made for a perfect evening, and took several bottles of wine home with us. As a local why have I not been here before? Definitely will go again, my husband and I were very pleased.

I ate there twice this week. Both times the food was very very good the service was horrible. My first visit I had a ribeye it was very nice guy just as requested. The second visit I had salmon I enjoyed this just as much as the steak. They have a nice selection of wine and their desserts are yummy.... More

St. Clair's was recommended by a friend, I went out to have dinner there and a glass of wine. The meal, service and wine were all outstanding. The atmosphere was very comfortable. Dimmed lighting very nice touch. I would recommend this Restaurant to those visiting Albuquerque in the Old Town area.

Okay...wine and beer only but their own Pino Grigio was delish! Sandwiches, burgers and salads were all raved about by 5 hungry women. Service was attentive and nice ambience. Convenient to Old Town and away from the norm in that area. Nice break for a minute from green chile...not that I don't love green chile and they had that also... More
