This restaurant is in the Albuquerque Hotel and the food/drinks are quite good. It is a bit more expensive as it is in the hotel but very good. The happy hour offers good drinks and appetizers are a reduced rate so that is a good time to visit. There was music on the nights I visited and good... read more

My sister had the enchilada and it came out barely lukewarm, with barely enough chili for a couple bites. My fajita... More

Garduno's is located in the charming Hotel Albuquerque. We had the pleasure of dining there for breakfast and dinner. The food was excellent and the service was beyond exceptional. The servers were friendly and efficient specifically Leo who made us feel right at home. Since my husband loves very spicy cuisine, this was the ideal restaurant for his dining pleasure.... More

I was a bit worried we wouldn't be able to get seated and served in a timely manner (it was a Saturday night at 8 PM) but we were seated and served promptly. My boyfriend and I both decided to order margaritas- He ordered the blue while I ordered the coconut, recommended in the room service menu. They were both... More

This restaurant is in the Hotel Albuquerque which is a lovely hotel. We had lunch which was excellent and very reasonable for such a lovely hotel. They also had some delicious vegetarian options. Jennifer, our server, gave us excellent service too which made for a terrific dining experience.

One other thing, we had a problem with our in room coffee maker the last day. When we went to get coffee and explained to the hostess, she gave us coffee to go for free! Great service and helpful waiters!

My husband and I searched for this restaurant on purpose. Specifically so we could sit outside and enjoy the 78 degree weather. No ad, in any of the guides we picked up, said that outdoor dining was available year round. Sadly, we sat inside. Poor service? As soon as we sat down, the server did not give us a chance... More

Their tortilla chips are fresh as is their salsa. I like the traditional choices and really enjoy their huge taco salads.The taste makes all the difference.
