Elegant Las Vegas style dining
I felt like I could have been in a 4-5 star restaurant in Vegas. The service was literally without comparison in Albuquerque. The menu offerings held no big surprises (steaks and seafood mainly), but all the food was very well cooked, and nothing I ordered disappointed. I felt like they were still refining the offerings for food and drink, having just opened, and some things seem disproportionately priced. There were even a couple of complementary surprise intermediate courses that really made the dinner more special. This experience is not cheap. Plan to spend minimum $60-100/person, plus tip & drinks, and you will have a great meal!

Good food at new restaurant in town
The restaurant has only been open a few months and is generally good, but still needs a few improvements. They start you off with a plate of various pickles and other items. They were not amazing, but I appreciated something different. Among my group, we ordered the chicken, filet, pork chops, and scallops, as well as several sides. All dishes were cooked well. Unfortunately, most of the dishes were also heavy on the garlic. The food was all good, just none of it was amazing.
The wine and cocktail list was not overly impressive, but interesting and reasonably priced.
The restaurant is inside a casino, but the ambiance in the restaurant is nice.
Overall, they have some improvements to make, but I will try it again in a few months.
