Highly underrated restaurant in ABQ
Service was great. We unintentionally showed up 30 minutes before our reservations and we were still seated immediately! My special request to have a seat by the window for a coveted view of the city was granted. Nice anniversary dinner! Tasty, progressive New Mexican menu!

It was easy to make a reservation! We had no wait time! Jordan our server was funny attentive and sweet! The food was sooo awesome! They have great green chile stew!! You have to try it if you go!!!!! I would whole- heartedly reccomend Santiago's for anyone! First dates, families, special occasions, and rendezvous!!! An Albuquerque gem with an outstanding view of the city!

Was a little too noisy and had to wait past the reservation time but they were very busy that night and work hard to accomodate everyone. I have never not had a good time at the grill! My favorite spot in Abq.

Great food and fun at Sandiagos
Went here on a recent Saturday night to celebrate a graduation and had a great time, great food and an awesome view.
Sandiagos is NOT a tourist trap despite being attached to the most popular tourist destination in Albuquerque, The Tram. It is a great restaurant with traditional and gourmet Mexican food coupled with outstanding service and an incredible view of the Albuquerque valley.
The manager was very attentive as well as his staff and everyone ensured we had a great dining experience. The ambience is bright and festive and there is a well appointed bar. There is also patio dining looking out over Albuquerque but any seat inside is a great view as well.
We will definitely be coming back and telling others about Sandiagos!

3 day topper
I recently spent three days in Albuquerque on business. Ate out every night. This place was by far the best dinner our group of four had. Good service. Good atmosphere. Good food. When I make a return trip I will be sure to eat here again.

It is still a pretty noisey
It is still a pretty noisey place. They could use sound deadening techniques. Food is good and service was was very efficient. Still better than El Pinto by far...

Our reservation requesting a wondow seat was honored & we had a great night. Service was ok, but good food & views perfect. We'll be back!

The food at Sandiago's is
The food at Sandiago's is consistantly well prepared. We take out of town guests to this restaurant frequently. It is very nice that they have selections for non-chile eaters on the menu. The seafood selections are very tasty.
5/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful views of the city and Sandia Mountains. Hold out for a table on the patio if you can. Margaritas are very good. Food is good excrpt a little over priced.
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Spectacular views and great food!
We will be back! Have been going to Sandiago's for at least 7-8 years now and we'll definitely go again. Great place for couples, good for families and also for special occasions. The Blue Corn Chicken Enchiladas are outstanding!

Showing off the town to visitors
We had guests in from out of town, so we took them up to the peak for dinner, and a view of the city. They were impressed by the number of vegetarian selections. Only regret was not getting a second chile rellenos; they are the best in town.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Used open table to reserve. Got there ,asked for patio Hostess said patio was reserved for rest of evening. Tried to set us in back in s booth. They were not full.. We complained and finally were moved to a better table. Found out in talking to others there, that what the hostess had told us was basically not true. Others with no resevstions were coninully seated on pario or near window. I will wear a better shirt maybe next time maybe that will help. The waiter and food where very good.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sandiago's is always perfect, we have NEVER had a bad experience here...
6/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service was a little slow due to a big party going on but it was a great night out still
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
loved the whole nite
The food was not only ample but delicious as well. We went early and got a great indoor view of the city. Large groups with kids enjoyed the outdoors :)) Service was better than most upscale New Mexician restaurants and the price was just right!! We will certainly go back again. Maybe a Tram ride as well

Sandiago's is pretty much my favorite ABQ restaurant.

Beautiful scenery, great food and service! It was a perfect date night, ride the tram and then a wonderful dinner.
7/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
wonderful food and view
We chose this restaurant vs the one on top of the tramway because the other was more expensive and the reviews were not as great . We were not disappointed at Sandiago's. The food was wonderful. The service was efficient and friendly. The view was still amazing, even at the bottom of the mountain.

Great Place to Dine & Great Views
At almost 7,000' elevation, Sandiagos gives diners a great view of the valley below as well as Albuquerque. The food is outstanding, service is excellent and their outdoor dining area is wonderful.
Located at the base of the Sandia Mountain Tram, visitors can take the tram ride to the 10,500' peak of the mountain, then ride back down for lunch or dinner at Sandiagos. We take a lot of our friends who are visiting here for the first time on a tram ride, then dine at Sandiagos afterwards. In nine years, we have never been disappointed.
Sandiagos is one of our favorite places to dine.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Take the tram and get a discount on dinner...or vice-versa, just keep your receipt.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fine place to Dine
Very pleasantly surprised. Loved eating out on the balcony/porch. Great food & experience.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The view is the real show
The view is the real show stopper at Sandiago's. However, even with that competition, the restaurant's menu always complements the spectacular showcase outside the windows. (The most recent night we were there, a magnificent lightening storm over the Jemez was the show to watch.) My husband and I have been to Sandiago's several times and the food is always very good, satisfying, and quite dee-ee-lish! The menu and specials are creative and flavorful. We've never been disappointed. We had friends with this time, and they enjoyed the food and atmosphere as well.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Catch an amazing sunset!
We like Santiago's because we live close by, but we always come back because the food is good, the margaritas are good and you can catch an amazing sunset over Albuquerque.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food and great view
a great place to take a date and have great food with a great view! I would recommend this restaurant to even families and friends
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great introduction to Sandia Peak
We ate at Sandiagos before we road the tram to the top of Sandia Peak. Our reservation was for 5:30. We were practically all by ourselves until 6:00, when people started coming in. The food was very good, the service was great, and the view was wonderful.
We also received $5 off of our tickets to the tram because we made reservations on Open Table.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were planning to eat at the restaurant atop the Sandia Peak, but once we started doing some research, we found that Sandiago's was more in line with what we were looking for. The food did not disappoint.

Fantastic View and good food
This restaurant has one of the best views in Albuquerque. It sits at an altitude of about 7000 feet, therefore you have a view of the entire city and two of the highest mountain peaks about 50 miles away are also viewable. If you are lucky you will see a distant lightning storm which can really be spectacular. Since the food is primarily Mexican/New Mexican there is a lot of competition for this type of food in Albuquerque. However, I would rate the food here better than average Mexican/New Mexican food. It has a great variety so if you are a vegetarian, you will have plenty of choices. The Chips, Salsa and drinks are outstanding.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed our dinner at Sandiago's. We planned to eat here and then ride the Sandia Peak Tramway. The view was fantastic! We watch a few popcorn showers come in over Albuquerque. It was fascinating to see the lightning and storms. The food was fresh and delicious!
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the View!
Good food and a beautiful view! Can't wait to go back; this will be a place for special occasions. I've already recommended it to my friends.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, but bad salsa
Salsa and chips are staple treats at our local restaurants.
Their salsa was terrible, too much onion, and watery.

My wife & I where in town
My wife & I where in town for Albuquerque International Balloon Festa and to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. we were told about this restaurant by a friend who said food was outstanding along with the ride to the top of the peak. This was by far one of the better restaurants that we have been to while her from Florida. The food was OUTSTANDING and so was the server. Service was fast and never had to wait for refill on our drinks. My wife is a vegan so our server advised of a dish for her and he hit it right on the money, she loved it!!!! Thanks
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
the service was a bit slow
the service was a bit slow and it was incredibly noisy... I am assuming it was because of balloon fiesta. if we go again, it will not be during a seasonal time.

Flash Back Tour
I traveled with my father, daughter and aunt to Albuquerque to visit places that my dad had lived as a teenager. He has always wanted to ride The Tram, so we did that followed by Dinner. Our waiter was GREAT and we took his recommendations on our Dinner. My dad had the pork, my aunt had the scallops and I had the Blue Corn Enchiladas. Awesome and Plentiful. We also injoyed the Sunset view with our meal. Great Time and Worth the trip.
