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.

Was disappointed in this restaurant which is on the grounds of a beautiful golf course. We visited on a Friday night and found the service a little weak as well as several items on the menu that were not available. Turns out this is a favorite spot for wedding receptions and that appears to have an affect on the restaurant. It was a long wait but the food was delicious. The wine selection is nice.

Second time to have eaten at the Prairie Star. The place is pretty phenomenal and is pretty well known for being a five-star restaurant.

We had a lovely dinner. We were seated indoors, but still had a sweeping view of the Sandias. The service was well paced and we were delighted with the wine suggestion, a Ferrer pinot noir. The bison was tender and the Sea bass elegantly prepared. This will definitely be on the short list of places to take friends.

Attended music on the patio. Great band, weather was perfect. The staff tried very hard but patio was short staffed as it was packed and they had a huge golf tournament going on. Food on the patio is on the expensive side.

Thank you for taking time to let us know how we are doing. Yes, that popular band brought in quite a crowd, more than expected, and it was an unusually busy summer evening. We appreciate your considerate comment regarding the staff and your valuable feedback has been shared with our team. Thanks again for the four star rating!

The setting is beautiful but with nicer furniture outside it would be so much more. I thought the service was very good but I was disappointed with the food. My lamb was almost raw and the salmon entree was over cooked. I might try it one more time, it might have been an off night as it was Sunday.
