Diner Reviews
  • "We hadn't been here in awhile, but will get back sooner. The food was good, good local beer selection. Only con: it wasn't busy yet and the waiter wasn't attentive to refill drinks, but compliments to the young helper."

  • "The waitress and the food were awesome. The specialty drinks were okay. This is due to the peach drink. Very acidic and not tasty."

  • "A friendly neighborhood restaurant for those of us lucky enough to be within walking distance. Great happy hour drinks made to suit, nachos appetizer with kobe beef was very good for two hungry people to share before dinner. Main courses were very good, as usual. I do wish they would switch out the menu once in a while for those of us who dine there often."

  • "The food here is always quality, although maybe a little on the pricey side. The service is great and I have never had a bad experience here."

  • "Working on trying everything on the menu, so far it's been great! Chicken Picatta was our last choice and it was really good. Love that Bloody Mary!"

  • "My favorite spot in New Mexico. Great food, super location and the staff is top notch. The only negative to the experience is no Yungling beer. "

  • "I've lived in Albuquerque for a year and a half and probably come here at least once a week. The happy hour deals are great, the food has been consistently good. I've only ever been truly disappointed with the ramen, and now there's a ramen shop on central so never order it here. (And the dessert fritters are hit or miss - sometimes burnt on the outside and raw on the inside). Everything else is delicious, when I have a mixed group of friends (some picky, some not so much, some vegetarians) this place works great. Krystle is the very best server, I try to always sit in her section. Drinks are strong. The crowd gets interesting(?) after 11 pm -mix of olds hitting on youngs, and the weeken djs play a lot of edm if that's your thing. "

  • "The menu attracted me to the trendy upscale diner. Seems to be a local fave with an upbeat vibe that cheers the solitary business traveller. The sauces we great, but the experience disappointed. My advice: Don't compromise: Pork loin entree was my choice. When the server reported "We are out of polenta," I substituted rice. Out of polenta in New Mexico? Seriously... Next time, I'll change my entree selection. Keep it simple: I chose Fritter Bomb for dessert. (Don't tell my cardiologist!). Sounded great but the fritters were underdone. The better choice was Berry Cobbler (special). Heads up: The server was working hard to keep up. Did not return my credit card. Also didn't check back as I was dining. Bottom line: next time, I'll pass."

  • "We sat at the table for over ten minutes before we even knew our server. Most likely, it was vice versa. Her device was spotting. We could not tell if it was a bad day or, most likely another reason. we will reconsider this choice in the future."

  • "Love this place and usually love the music but for Saturday nights. The music is geared toward younger folks on the weekend and a bit loud and too energetic for a quiet meal."

  • "Everything was great, especially the service. We especially enjoyed the Waghu burger! Can't be beat!"

  • "The food at Nob Hill Bar & Grill is dependably very good. The menu is not large but what they serve, they do well. The wait staff is very friendly and does a good job of being there when you need them and not hovering. I recommend their steak salad."

  • "Food was good but not superb. Service was slow at times. The iced tea was quite good."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Great dinner as always! I had the salmon of the day and it was amazing. Pea risotto with kale and chard with grilled salmon and a lemon vodka sauce. It was absolutely amazing. My husband had the nachos which were good, but when he tasted mine, he said "You Won"...meaning I picked the best meal. As always, a great experience with good service and food. One of our go-tos particularly before games and events in the UNM Area."

  • "With the exception of our waitress, Marisol, the entire staff was completely rude to us. I believe its because we were all of hispanic decent and the majority of the crowd was anglo. From the get go it was bad. I had requested a 6 person party reservation. We got there and they tried to cram us into one tiny booth. I then asked the hostess if I could get a bigger table and she rolled her eyes and stated that table has six people which they did but were half our size. Treated poorly by everyone except Marisol. Never again will i suggest this to my friends."

  • "Interesting cocktails with great happy hour pricing. Food solid as always! I had the tenderloin salad--yummy and fresh, my husband had the fish and chips- large pieces of hot tender fish with crispy breaking served with waffle fries and homemade ketchup and my daughter got the clams with extra bread for sopping up the delicious cooking liquid. Hubby and I shared the bread pudding- hot and a mixture if textures . Not too sweet and delicious. Our daughter enjoyed the apple crisp ala mode for her dessert. As always, a great experience."

  • "The pistachio crusted chicken and cobb salad we ordered was delicious. We paired it with the JKs skrumpy hard cider. I made a reservation and we got seated right away. This is my second bisit here, and I have yet to try the other menu items."

  • "This is my spot to eat when in town. Normally get the same seat, order the clams( first rate) and generally check out the special. Prime rib is equal to even the Oak Room in Louisville KY."

  • "An excellent experience with Nob Hill Bar & Grill. I am a veteran at this restaurant. I just love it. I have been many times and you can always count on consistency with the food and drinks. If you are looking for something that is not on the menu, just ask. You might be pleasantly surprised."

  • "My wife and I are usual regulars to this place. She ordered the fish special; and, the meatloaf. Both did not meet the expectations at all. we inquired if the meatloaf had any sort of spice. We were advised it did not, but it it did. My mouth was on fire. The fish dish was another complete disappointment. The server was acceptable but had occasional flashed of forgetfulness and inattentiveness. She only check in twice. When she was advised of the disappointment, she did not make any other query or attempt for satisfaction.We walked out hungry and unsated. We have decided to stay away for while until we hear positive reviews from trusted diners whom we know. My apologies."

  • "Nice place but if you want a quiet respite do not sit near the bar area! Way to loud to enjoy the meal and the company you are with. Food very good, service great, decent prices."

  • "This is the second time I have been to Nob Hill Bar and Grill and it was wonderful--again. Jessica, the hostess, was solicitous when I arrived and sat waiting for my friend and she didn't bat an eye when we asked to sit at the bar instead of the table I had reserved. She came over and checked on us several times, but we were in great hands with Tyson, the bartender! He poured, chatted and took our orders making us feel we had his undivided attention, but never leaving anyone else at the bar to feel he was ignoring them. The waitstaff who presented our food was equally solicitous and made for an incredible afternoon of dining. We enjoyed it so much, we went back the following day! Thanks, to all at Nob Hill Bar and Grill - see you all soon."

  • "Food was very good, as was service except for messing up one order for our party. Seated right by the entry door on a cold evening which detracted a little from the evening."

  • "This restaurant has been a long time favorite, however, the restaurant has changed, not up to its prior glory. Waygu 1001 burger was very good, the bun was stale, the fries over cooked & I have a real pet peeve with the owner's addition to a small basket for the fries. Let's face it, we used to get a good portion of fries and now it is pitifully small. The waygu burger with fries is $15, but what's with the stale bun? Service is spotty. Our waitress disappeared to get our beer and didn't return for a long time. upon return said that there was trouble with a keg. Our beer was flat and we weren't offered a fresh glass. I liked Nob Hill a lot but may have to look for another place for a good burger and a DECENT side of fries."

  • "This was my first time here and I loved it. We were able to take our children and they had an equally go time. The food was excellent and the service was prompt, friendly but not intrusive. I highly recommend this eatery to others and this would be an excellent place to bring out of towners. Enjoy!"
