Our party of four enjoyed
Our party of four enjoyed a memorable and wonderful Easter brunch buffet. I especially enjoyed the breakfast items; my son could not get enough of the veal and everyone enjoyed their meal. The service was gracious and unhurried. Our table was comforable. After the meal we enjoyed a leisurely afternoon on the patio surrounded by flowering shrubs and pretty junipers (not the pollenating kind). My review has so many superlatives you may think it has been written by an insider. Not so. I booked this reservation from Texas, not knowing what was available in ABQ and never having heard of La Fonda del Bosque. I took a chance, based on the online information and "hit a homerun", according to my family. Thank you La Fonda for a great Easter memory.

Made Mother's Day a Hit with Mom!
The service was awesome, just as the reviews I had read suggested. My mom was greeted with a "happy mother's day" and a long-stemmed rose. There was beautiful, live accoustic music and the ambience was great. The food was really good and everyone from the people manning the buffet to the waiters to the people manning the carving stations were amazing. My mom had a wonderful time and I would highly recommend La Fonda del Bosuque to anyone wanting to celebrate a special occasion.

Had a lovely dinner prior
Had a lovely dinner prior to a show at the Cultural Center. It was lovely and nice to have time for a little walk before the show. We are looking forward to going back for brunch some day.

Evening sun was a bit much
Evening sun was a bit much coming in the huge windows that had no coverings. Would be better after dark or at a Sunday brunch. The food was tasty and filling. The wait staff was very nice, attentive, and prompt. We would go back but not for a romantic dinner unless it was after dark. We will go for the Sunday brunch and we would recomment it especially to eat at before an event at the cultural center.

Father's Day Delight
I loved my paella and my family liked their NM version of eggs benedict. Service was prompt, the buffett had a good selection, plus there was music for this special day. The patio was not open for seating when we went but maybe we can be seated there next time we go.

Great meal before the ballet
La Fonda del Bosque is now open for dinner on Thurs, Fri and Saturday nights. It's a great place to go before a show at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. I had churrasco perfectly cooked to medium rare and my husband had the Pheasant Wellington. We also found it a good place for conversation with dinner. The wine list is limited but acceptable. Parking is easy. We have also enjoyed lunch there.

Not your typical brunch buffet
This was my first visit and my expectations were not real high, but boy oh boy what great food! Don't expect to find scrambled eggs and bacon on the buffet steam tables. Instead you will be treated to prawn quiche, wild mushroom and ratatouille tarts rolled ham and cheese crepes, lox, fresh fruits and vegetables. In addition to all this, you can order an item off the menu to be freshly prepared for you. Options include paella, huevos rancheros, carne adovada, tenderloin eggs benedict--so many choices it was hard to pick one but I opted for the paella which was loaded with delicious seafood and a spicy sausage. My husband chose the chile rellenos w/eggs and loved it. Then it was time for the dessert buffet, every choice delicious.

A lovely way to get ready for a show at the center. Afterward we headed next door to see "Don Giovanni" ... in the best possible mood.

Great place for lunch
I stopped in here for lunch and was very surprised about the quality of meal I got for the price. I had the 3 course business meal for $15 and loved every course. I had a Caesar salad, fish tacos, and a Carmel cheesecake. I would recommend all three.

Great for Steak
Consistent quality ingredients. Don't skip the appetizers. The flank steak deserves special mention. Very friendly and attentive service. We will be back again.

Before concert or Lobos sport event
Extensive Sunday brunch before NHCC classical concert. Hints of New Mexican chilis but fresh fruits, excellent seafood quiche, lox, cheeses, crepes, plus choice of 6 entrees fresh from kitchen. Coffee and generous fruit juice serving. Wines available. Walked out door to the NHCC concert site.

We really enjoyed the Sunday
We really enjoyed the Sunday brunch. The quiche, French toast and the paella entre were all excellent. The décor was bright and pretty and the guitar player added just the right touch. I would recommend this spot for a delicious and relaxing treat on Sunday morning!
