On Saturday night we celebrated my 65 (!) birthday. We have lived in greater Albuquerque for over 6 years and had never been to Bien Shur (Native American for blue mountain). We were given a gift certificate and decided to use it for this auspicious occasion. First of all, no matter what time you plan to dine, MAKE RESERVATIONS for... More

We came here specifically for a sunset view after reading a Foursquare article of the ten best sunset restaurants in Albuquerque. We took a city side view vs the mountains and it was about perfect. It was interesting for an upscale restaurant- we had one server do everything vs a runner, server, and bar server. And the kid was amazing.... More

We wanted a special meal for a special celebration and were not disappointed. Stunning views of the Sandia mountains. Crab cake and salads were wonderful. Extensive wine list. My sirloin tip and pasta was delicious as was my wife's salmon and polenta, though both were just a touch salty for our taste. Very attentive and friendly service. A pricey meal... More

My wife and I went for dinner last night and it was an experience to remember! The view was amazing! The server was attentive as well. I order prime rib. It was cooked to perfection! My wife had a filet which was equally as succulent. The wine selections were numerous and desert menu delicious! A word of caution though. It... More

I'm a little late writing this review, as my friend and I had reservations there the day AFTER Valentine's Day. First, everything was done by the staff to make our dining experience absolutely fantastic. We had a table by the window with excellent views of the Sandias and the golf course, offering lovely views, especially at sunset. The staff was... More

We had such an amazing experience here. Everything we ate was awesome and cooked to perfection. The atmosphere and scenery were to die for. We highly recommend this restaurant for date nights. Try the 7 layer red velvet cake, you won't be disappointed.

The restaurant provides a great experience. The lounge area is perfect for meeting friends for that before dinner drink. The adjacent dining room itself is reasonably quiet even when the lounge vibes pick up. The food presentation is dramatic and creative and three of our four entrees were perfect. Admittedly, the lamb was a bit tough but it did not... More

New Year's eve dinner... excellent. Steak, trimmings, and desert were all on point--just right. Great job by the chef and kitchen. Service was a bit detached. This was our second visit, and both were very well done.

Outstanding meal by Chef Martin. The staff couldn't have been more pleasant; making sure everything was perfect at our meal, which it was. Great view from the large windows at our table, and without a doubt, one of the best places we have eaten. A round of applause to the chef and the staff who made it ever so special... More

Such a beautiful sunset dinning location and experience. The Sandia Resort is so beautifully designed, simply breathtaking. Bien Shur is just a short evaluator ride to a vista view dining room, The staff was very professional, well informed and warm with their interactions.
