the salads are really special

It's hard to make a really tasty salad with a few simple ingredients, but they do, and with really fresh produce. We also had a delightful, darling looking waitress.

We come here about 6 times a year. I've only been disappointed once (the cherry feta salad was incredibly salty) but other than that, they serve very tasty salads with a menu full of good choices. These salads are not cheap ($13 with no meat) but the restaurant is cheerful, service is good and they bring very tasty bread to... More

This is a popular place, reflecting its good food and service. It is noisy when busy, and sometimes crowded, which reflects its popularity and its good food. Everything I ordered or sampled was good. Beer and wine are available. You must ask for bread, but it's given happily and it's free. One of the top casual places in town.

Recommended to us by a local business contact, Vinaigrette is a foodie dream. Lots of luscious, heaped, imaginative salads with house made dressings, good appetizer selections, and truly fine sandwiches. We had the stuffed cabbage to start, a big, buxom loaf of spiced ground meat wrapped in a big, tender cabbage leaf and floating in a truly wonderful, vinegar-y tomato... More

Really really interesting choices for salads. I like salad but wouldn't think a restaurant could have so many varied interesting choices that were fabulous! The portions are huge, but oh so tasty! Nice bright and airy surroundings, and very helpful staff.

Vinaigrette's menu offers healthy choices with flavor. You may feel energized after eating lunch here. The All Kale Caesar is awesome.

What a treat to find a place like this! Fabulous salads (they are HUGE!) A great little selection of wines, and the kale fritters were to die for. Atmosphere was bright and cheerful, as was the service - thanks for a great experience! We will deffinatly come again next time we are in Albuquerque.
