Bien Shur - Sandia Resort and Casino
romantic getaway close to home.We really enjoyed sitting at the top of the casino with a great view of the golf course, mountains, and city. The wait staff was exceptional and buffet selections were plentiful. The coffee is dynamite. My only issue came with the cold eggs, bacon, and sausage. However, the red chile rubbed prime rib made up for the cool first course. Looking forward to the next visit!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerWe had a wonderful evening at Bien Shur. It is at the top of the hotel complex of Sandia Casino and we were given a table in the Lounge so we could have a window view. (There were none left in the Restaurant part and we were given that choice.) The food was excellent as was the wait staff. The only complaint is that we were not warned there would be VERY loud live music in the Lounge which started before we were finished our meal. We might have chosen to eat in the Restaurant section which looked to be far enough from the Lounge to not be so loud. Other than that, it was a perfect evening for our anniversary dinner.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were celebrating my son'sWe were celebrating my son's birthday. The staff was very attentive and everyone said that their dish was tasty. I would go there again.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view, food is simpleGreat view, food is simple but outstandingly prepared. This place is the exception to the rule that you sacrifice food for the view. You can always find great food in Albuquerque, but Bien Shur is among the best of the best.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWarm ReceptionA smiling and welcoming hostess as always! Wonderful bread and butter service! A charming lady serves an excellent warm bread selection with soft butter very soon after seating...a welcome salvation for my hunger. The martini's are always correctly made. The lamb was fixed properly though the serving seemed just a little small. Some confusion with the waiter about what is served with the entree. Overall, an enjoyable evening. I wish there were evening specials including fresh seafood and shellfish. I over heard the waitress telling a group the chef was too busy to prepare specials for the evening. This restaurant has the ability to move to the very next level and be the best in town and I encourage them to do so!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service, ambience andThe service, ambience and view were excellent.

We ordered 2 Papa Dobles for pre dinner cocktails. They were terribly bitter and nothing like they were 2weeks ago when we ordered them. We sipped them down half way but didn't order another. We mentioned it to our server and we were told the bartender thinks she forgot to add Maraschino liqueur! We paid for them and moved on.
Dinner was beautiful with good service.. My pork chop was delicious. My husband ordered scallops which were visually good but both squishy and sandy!!! He didi his best to eat 2 but was disappointed. He did mention this incident to our waitress. She said she woulf mention it to the chef. It was expensive and not exactly right3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first experience was veryOur first experience was very nice overall. We just didn't expect to hear the excitement from the bar...that ruined the ambiance.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMI was VERY very pleasantlyI was VERY very pleasantly surprised by this gem in the Hard Rock hotel - I wasn't expecting much but had a truly excellent meal.
