Beyond the great ambience and setting, the food is outstanding. The appetizer scallops are amazing, and were a great compliment to our main course. The service this second time around, was not as great as the first visit, but was still acceptable. The noise level varies by seating area; overall very acceptable. We will be coming back very soon..

Service was excellent! Food
Service was excellent! Food was as good as any we've had at finer places. A little on the pricey side, but worth it.

The service and the atmosphere
The service and the atmosphere was great! The food was good, I ordered the seafood pasta, it was fresh and tasty. My mother ordered the scallops and spinach, it was excellent. My sister ordered the special stuffed halibut with spinach, not to good. They brought a complementary dessert for my mother's 80th birthday which was really special.
i would recommend this restaurant....

My husband and I recently took my Mom and Dad to Vintage 423 to celebrate my Dad's 86th birthday. The food was delicious as always, and the steaks are magnificent. The restaurant was fairly empty as we had a noon reservation on the Sunday before Memorial Day, but it later became more busy. We did have to ask the server to turn down the music which had been turned on as soon as we sat down. We all treated ourselves to their tasty sweet potato fries, and Mom and I really enjoyed the portobello sandwich. The large, relaxing patio was especially enjoyable on a slightly breezy afternoon, and we really had a great lunch.

Good food, nice ambiance
Nice bar area, good wine list, good drinks (but if you get the moscow mule ask for regular not vanilla vodka). Dinner prices were on the high side ($20+) but food was delicious.

Unknown gem for brunch
Vintage is an un discovered gem for Sat or Sunday brunch. Very relaxing on the patio.

In a neighborhood short on fine dining restaurants, Vintage 423 is definitely an Albuquerque treasure. Offering a mix of sophisticated and contemporary décor, a well-balanced menu of delectable food, a tremendous wine selection, and a quiet and intimate setting, Vintage 423 delivers. The lunch/dinner American fine dining menu offers a balance of seafood and meat. Steaks are seared to perfection on a very high temperature broiler as they are in places like Ruth's Chris, but at a more affordable price. The sizable outdoor patio is complete with fireplace and fire pits. Although the exterior appearance and name had me thinking this was a clothing store, Vintage 423 is now one of my upscale dining favorites.

Forget What You've Heard
I read several reviews on the internet that suggested this restaurant had so so food and poor service. WRONG! Great ambiance, and nice decor. Staff was friendly and efficient. Our waiter Ben was perfect, always was there when we needed him. The food was amazing!!!! I have eaten everywhere from San Fransisco to Milan and this place is a top ten favorite any day. Crab cake starter was tender and crunchy with a habanero sauce that had bite. The filet was perfectly done in their 1200 degree oven (think ruths chris but better). blue cheese mash potatoes were delicious with a ??? wasabi bite???. All time favorite was the crab oscar...melts in the mouth....go there and in case you are wondering...go there.

Absolutely an amazing place
I was brought here to Vintage 423 for my birthday and I absolutely was amazed! The scenery was breath taking, the food was delicious and the service was great! I enjoyed it so much I had to bring my family two weeks later.

Surprise on Paseo!
Vintage was an experience from the time I booked our Table on my smart phone twenty minutes before our arrival. We were greeted by a gentleman with thick glasses and he was introduced as our waiter. He made the meal a delight!! explained the menu very creatively. Food was amazing..Hand made drinks all very innnovative.. We actually met friends walkiing by our table and we joined them on the patio once we finished dinner. Quail wrapped in Bacon Appetizers.. Beautiful Griiled Vegetables and very nice cuts of meat, Filet and Ribeye. Top of Mind Design and Ambience! ..Just a bit Pricey. But then the quality and service was more inline with a fine Manhattan Eatery.. Great Surprise !

First 2 times we ate here
First 2 times we ate here it was mediocre and overpriced. New chef food is definitely worth the dollar. Superb dining experience.

Very nice dining experience
Crab and corn chowder is very good as is the grilled salmon and petit filet

Soooo much better now!
This was a working lunch and the venue could not have been more perfect. It was wonderful, the wait-staff was attentive, but not intrusive, and the food was wonderful.
My dining partner and I both had salads, he had a beef salad and I had the salmon salad. Both were delicious and bursting with flavor. The combinations of greens and the respective meats made the lunch sublime.
We chose to have the artisanal breads and olive oil for our appetizer and passed on dessert. But the meal was a perfect balance and we both felt full and comfortable, not stuffed.
Would absolutely diner here again.

we were celebrating a birthday and had a nice time. Food was good, server was attentive. And we enjoyed happy hour pricing on our bottle of wine, an unexpected discount.

This was a great find and recommended to us from our bartender at the hotel. I had a rib eye and it was cooked perfectly and our service was great. If you are in ABQ you have to eat here!

A little pricey, so I believe
A little pricey, so I believe it's great for special occasion. The bar I believe I visit more often

Worth a Visit
This area of town certainly needs a good restaurant like this for both lunch and dinner. Great atmosphere and interesting menu begs more than one visit. Server was very nice but did not know the daily soup special and was not sharp on the wine list...surprising as wine seems to be an emphasis. The pasta and seafood was nice however the shrimp were overcooked and the meal a little salty to my taste.

I was not very hungry so I had the Mussels and pear salad, it was perfect!
The Birthday girl had steak quesidilla and chocolate Birthday Cake !

uptown look and vibe
We enjoyed the food and wine list. The bar and lounge is really fun but the dining room is boring. They have that popular restaurant design where many of the chairs are placed so that you're staring at a wall the whole time. I don't get dressed up to go out and stare at a wall all evening. So, the next time we asked for a booth in the lounge and we could see more. Otherwise, the decor and food and wine are really great. Great waitresses.
