Slow service, appetizer came with meal, hamburger over cooked and fries tasteless- prepackaged? Expensive. Not enough waitstaff, overpriced, only food source for most meals, limited menu, pub type food.

This was a first time here for us and our friends. We had heard the service was great and that was confirmed. We had a reservation on a Saturday night at 7:30p and finished by their closing time at 9p. Our fall weather had turned chilly so we were glad to be seated near the fire. The wine list has... More

We came here after our wedding, and had a really good time. The French onion soup was tasty. We had trout for our main course, and it was very yummy. The dessert was a dark chocolate cheesecake, and it was amazing. The staff was very nice. We will definitely be back!

Prairie Star never fails as being one of the best restaurants in New Mexico. The ambiance is Southwestern with simplicity mingled with art; the location is on the edge of the beautiful gold course at the Hyatt. And the smell of pinion in the air can't be beat. We started out with drinks by the fire and watched the sunset... More

Although our bison steak and quinoa stuffed salmon were a little over done they were still delicious. The asparagus was perfect. The waiter (wish I could remember his name) was fabulous.

Celebrated with their New Years eve fixed menu. All of the food was excellent. Service was very good with only one slip up. They mixed up the appetizer plates. This was not cheap at $69, but it was a five course menu. You could get matching wine with each course. We chose not to do that and got our wine... More

This place has great food and great views of the Sandias. It is a bit pricey but it is great for special occasions (ie: birthdays and anniversary).

Description
The Prairie Star Restaurant at Santa Ana Golf Club offers an unforgettable dining experience. Housed in an old adobe mansion, the warmth and intimacy of Prairie Star is intoxicating. You may absorb the atmosphere of handmade adobe walls, kiva fireplaces and full vigas and latilla ceilings while enjoying awe-inspiring and sweeping views of the golf course and the Sandia Mountains. Chef Chris Olsen masterfully creates stunning Contemporary New American cuisine with global influences and changes our menu seasonally to reflect the time and freshest ingredients at hand. Each dish is carefully crafted from the finest ingredients and constructed for unique flavor combinations and flair of presentation.
