Diner Reviews
  • "We enjoyed our dinner at Vernons. The steaks were some of the most flavorful, tender, and properly prepared that we've ever had. The service was excellent, and we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. The food menu that they feature on-line does include prices, which is important since this is not an inexpensive dining experience. We appreciated not having young children in the restaurant as we were celebrating a special occasion and we thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere. Be sure to carefully read the wine list as half bottles are mixed in with full bottles and that can result in purchasing a much more expensive bottle than you planned on. Other than us making that mistake with the wine, it was an excellent dining experience. "

  • "My wife and I have been talking about Vernon's for a couple of years and I thought, what better time to finally check it out than as a surprise for my wife in celebration of her birthday? I can honestly say that it has been, by far, the best dining experience that we've had since moving to New Mexico from New Jersey 7-plus years ago. The staff's attention to our every need, the incredible food, the ambiance.............all just simply unbelievable. My sincerest thanks to the staff at Vernon's for making my wife's birthday a very special night. Glenn Los Lunas"

  • "This was our first visit, but it will not be our last! We had heard so many good things about this place and decided to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday there. It was the best dinning experience we have had in Albuquerque in a long time. The steaks were great as was the lobster tail. The staff from "Sonny" to the table assistant we great! I highly recommend Vernon's to anyone who has something special to celebrate. "

  • "Took my girlfriend here in out first romantic dinner and the joint did not disappoint. From Jackamoe at the door to the delicious cocktails, the Speakeasy embiance had us hooked. Dark, winding hallways add a romantic twist to this already fun space with live music and an A-list menu rounding this out as the most exclusively delicious restaurants in Albuquerque. Get ready to drop some cash as the food and libations are not priced for the frugal, but they are worth every last penny."

  • "Food was good, but certainly wasn't worth the price for a porterhouse steak. I've eaten better steaks for a fraction of the cost. Lobster tail was good, but also wasn't worth the $70 for a tail."

  • "Fun speakeasy ambiance. Need a password to get in and then a nice little show from the "goon" at the door. Through the secret door to the sitting areas. Had great dry rubbed steaks with a nice Bordeaux and were given a wonderfully light and delicious cream puff for desert as it was our 25th anniversary. Would definitely go back, that steak was special!"

  • "This was our first time dining at Vernon's. My husband and I were celebrating a recent promotion I received at work and this restaurant was the perfect fit. Our food was incredible. We had the lamb rack and the Los Ranchos Star steak, both cooked to perfection and very flavorful. We also indulged in the adult Mac n Cheese which was delectable! We received excellent service and our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and recommended a perfect wine pairing for my entrée. We hope to return very soon!"

  • "From the moment you find the nondescript door, to entering the cozy, dark restaurant, you know you're in for something special... My Lemon Drop was perfect as was the Cabernet ... The steaks were perfect and the ambiance cozy. Our server Kathleen was gracious and attentive. A wonderful evening out."

  • "The food was really good, however my wife and I did not like the chef's choice for vegetable. The wait staff was good how ever my wife noticed that another table was receiving better service from their waiter than us. Example, offering more bread, cleaning the crumbs, and picking up the salad plates in a timely matter. No disrespect what so ever, we receive a little better service at the Cattlemen's club for the same price of food."

  • "The Open Table res. System works great. It's a little hard to find but that's kinda the point. Sonny the doorman was great. The only other place in ABQ that has comparable food is Antiquity, although I think I have to give the slight advantage to Vernons. EXCELLENT meal.. Wow. Not cheap... But worth it. This is my #1 favorite hidden gem in NM. True Breaking Bad fans need to visit here at least once in thier lives."

  • "We went here with a friend who's a gluten free vegetarian. When I made the reservation I included this info and the chef made an incredible portobello mushroom stuffed cabbage on a wild rice risotto for her. It made her night to have a custom plate. They really go above and beyond."

From the reception through dessert, the entire experience was delightful! Outstanding service and the food was spectacular! On the pricey side, but the price reflects the quality of the food! We will definitely come back!!"

  • "My husband & I don't frequent fancy restaurants as we aren't really what you'd call fancy people. However, a friend gave us a gift card for Vernon's, so we decided to give it a shot. So glad we did! It felt a little silly, at first, having to knock on an imposing door & give a password, but once we got over ourselves, it was actually fun! As parents to two small children, it was a wonderful break to eat in a restaurant that doesn't admit small children & feature a menu heavy on mac-'n-cheese & chicken fingers! The food was beyond exceptional with service to match. Our waiter, Dusty, was very knowledgeable. The steaks were supreme & the sides were to die for. We cannot recommend this restaurant enough; we'll definitely return!"
