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.

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 Stout. The St Clair is a keeper!

Had birthday dinner with friends. First time for dinner. The wine is good, service was beyond good but the food was below par except for Mac and Cheese. The " Fish and Chips" were more like fish sticks. The rib eye was ok but the veggies that came with it were cold and tasted like store-bought frozen things. The ambiance... More

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
