The price is a nice surprise for such a lovely experience. Our waitress (Sheila, I think) was excellent. She gave our 3 soldiers a discount and a free dessert to celebrate a commissioning. She started by giving us a tasting of their champagne and some of us got their wine sampler which let us sample 3 of their wines for $5. The food servings were generous and most of us had enough to take some home. There's a nice bar area with booths if you just want to go for the wine. All in all, an excellent experience!

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner here in October. The food, service and ambiance were wonderful. I don't drink but my wife enjoyed two of their locally produced wines. The manager Jason Giglio was very informative and friendly. He even interrupted our dessert to show us the beautiful sunset that night. The have a beautiful dining rooms, nice tables in the bar area (where we sat) and a great patio.

I didn't expect this fine a meal in Las Cruces. They were wonderful.

Fine dining, fine atmosphere and fine wines. Lovely inside, service was pleasant and the menu a delightful surprise offering variety. We ate a pork loin in a cranberry reduction that was good. Desserts were yummy as well. The place is huge, with inside and outside dining available and lots of nice areas.

While driving from Florida to our new home in Phoenix, we stopped in Las Cruces on Sunday after a long day's drive. We had eaten the worst meal ever for lunch at a Sonic in Texas, and all we wanted was an acceptable dinner. We got to our hotel after 9 PM, and asked the clerk if there were any restaurants nearby still open on a Sunday night. As it turned out, she suggested the St. Clair Winery, and called them to ensure that they were open (until 10 PM, as it turned out).

First, the service. It is not unusual to have warnings about sharing plates, and many restaurants discourage this. If they don't discourage it, they are usually not very helpful, and one often needs to ask for extra plates which are sometimes grudgingly distributed. Well, when we told the waitress we would be sharing everything, there wasn't even a question - she brought out every dish on two plates, already divided in the kitchen, and even had separate containers of the sauces on each plate. This was the best experience we can remember in terms of a restaurant accommodating guests who want to share their meals.

Second, the food. It is was surprisingly good, with an excellent, and huge, piece of prime rib still available at that time on a Sunday night. As I mentioned, it was divided in the kitchen, and the side vegetables were also prepared in an interesting manner - not just taken out of a steam pot, but grilled fresh, and we each had our own containers of the "au jus" and horseradish dip.

Third, the wine. Yes, it is a winery, and we knew nothing about New Mexico wines. They offered a tasting flight of 6 one-ounce pours for just $6 - yes, that is not a mis-print, just six dollars. We tried three of their white wines and three of their reds, and found them all to be interesting, and some of them very good - as good as most California reds. Their grapes are all grown locally and their winemaker creates at least two wines with differing qualities from each grape.

Finally, the service again - the waitress was both friendly and efficient, not always the case for this time of night just prior to closing. She helped make this a very nice dining experience, all the better because we hadn't expected anything this good.

One of the best wines i have tasted. The lunch was delicious and so filling, at a very reasonable price.
