Amazing service!

Apart from very good food, there is a wait team that is really great and knowledgeable. Ralph & Ivy are the bomb! We had a great visit.

We have been coming to the Rancher's Club for years. I always bring my girlfriend here to celebrate her birthday because it is her favorite restaurant. She loves the Kobi Filet. Every single time we have been there both the food and the service have been absolutely perfect. I would recommend it to anyone and often do.

The service & ambiance are spot on. The food, the Oysters Rockefeller in particular, is absolutely fabulous. The reason you come to Ranchers Club of course is the steak. We have been coming here for years, perhaps decades, simply because this is where you find the best steak in Albuquerque.

Our visit was for business entertainment. Given the reviews, I was prepared for an old-school steak place.The bar area lived up to the expectations. Don the bartender was very attentive and had an old-school bartender demeanor. We had a business group of 9 people and the bar was lively. We were escorted to our table by the fireplace. While it...

Dined there recently for the first time in several years. I don't know why I've wasted my time and money going to Vernon's instead. Yes, the atmosphere is a bit old fashion, but I think that is part of the charm. The service is outstanding! I wish I could remember our main waiter's name because he was truly awesome. We... More

Thank you for your review. Our steaks are wonderful but the Strawberry is my favorite of the Flames. It is something that I came up with for my father on his birthday about 20 years ago. He still orders it to this day. Hopefully this will be your favorite and regular dessert when you return. Again Thank you More

I was in town for business and went to Ranchers on a Thursday night. Took a seat at the bar. I was immediately attended to by Alex. He was the highlight of the evening.

gondekp Thanks for your review. I am sorry that you felt the steak was not up to par. I am glad that Alex did the correct thing in changing the price as compensation. Please let me know the next time you are in town so we can try and make it up to you. Again thank you More

I don't get a chance to eat here as much as I like to but I did get to come last weekend. The food never gets old for me. The steak is very delicious. The wait staff is very nice and helpful. The piano bar is always really classy and the bartenders are complete professionals.

About twelve of us visited for an after business meeting group dinner. There were lots of great menu items. I had the Hunter's Trio for $45. (I can't find it on the online menu, so maybe I have the name wrong). It was slightly spicey sausage, venison and elk, fingerling potatoes and asparagus. Servers were very attentive. Everyone was happy... More

We were staying at the Crowne Plaza and the incredible music in the lounge drew us inside. Our 3 year old son loves music and instruments and the Jazz trio was incredible!
