This is my second visit. This is upscale and priced accordingly but the food, service and atmosphere is great. Tonight I had the tenderloin, medium rare. Soft as butter. Cooked perfectly. I drank it with a nice tempernilo. My friend ate the pasta di mare. He enjoyed it. The seasonal cheesecake was better than expected. It is worth the visit.

Ardovinos is a bit out of the way from ElPaso, but definitely a great restaurant worth the drive. Their brunch selection was varied and amazing. Banana bread French toast was great. Eggs Benedict perfectly prepared with a smooth zesty hollandaise, Their version of chicken and waffles had bacon, pecans, cranberries and a slice I chicken breast. A little over the top in flavors. All the other diners ordered omelettes that were served with a nicely seasoned baked hash brown. My mimosa was infused with puréed prickly pear. Delicious! The Bloody Mary was prepared with fresh herbs and spices. Nicely done all the way around.

I love the food here! It's top notch. Plus the fact that there can sometimes be live music. Only thingI don't enjoy is waiting so long for a table but that's because other people like this place a lot too. Reserve a table ahead of time!! But you can have a drink at the bar while you wait. The filet mignon was delicious!
