I liked the restaurant, the views and the service was good. If I only had 1 critical comment, it would be that the menu has much more small plates than entrees, but other than that the food was good and the space was nice.

Enjoyed drinks and a light dinner here Christmas day evening after a day of flying. Interesting drink selection and very good small plate food. Although crowded and understaffed at the time, the Apothecary and bartender Gabriel kept us happy. We would return

We had a simple supper, which was just what we wanted after a long day's drive. We were very happy to be able to sip some wine with a light supper.

Went on a date to this lounge and had the green chile sliders. Best part though was snuggling in a blanket on one of the many roof top couches overlooking Albuquerque.

The surroundings are nice. It seems very trendy. The Caesar salad is underwhelming for the price. The autumn Cobb salad itself was tasty, but the dressing was so spicy hot that I could not eat much. Without the dressing it would have been a good value. I would probably not return.

This lounge is trendy. Food was just so so. Loved the decor. Used an old gurney as a table. Had tables with old hospital curtains around them.

The Bartender was awesome, but the wait staff could use some help. We had to wait quite some time before we asked for our check - luckily the views and the food made it worth the wait.
