Vernon's Hidden Valley Steakhouse
OutstandingWe went there for our anniversary and had a very nice time. The ambiance was awesome, very quiet and romantic, AND the food was AMAZING! The filet was one of the best I've had in my life. The service was excellent and they even gave us a complimentary desert for our special occasion.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden GemWe had so much fun! The waitstaff was awesome. They were so cool. They were professional but so helpful and friendly. I felt very at home. It was swanky and dark and there was jazz playing. I would go back for dinner for another special occasion but I'd go back for tapas at the bar anytime. I loved that the menu was really just a base guidline and the waiter was really knowledgable about all the added, extra things that were not on the menu. It was the coolest place I've ever been and the food was spectacular!!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and atmosphereThe place was great as usual and the food was great.

The service, atmosphere and food were great!!! It is actually like an old-time speakeasy. They call to confirm your reservation or e=mail you with a password to get in! We were seated in the Diamond Lounge so the live music only added to the occasion. The waiter was attentive and on top of everything! It is pricey, but worth it. The food was delicious and well prepared. Definitely a destination for a special event or just something a bit different.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time there and it wasFirst time there and it was great! My wife and I celebrated our Anniversary and she immediately fell in love!

Will return again.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic experience. FoodFantastic experience. Food was incredible and the establishment dripped with class.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI ordered the rack of elk,I ordered the rack of elk, and I was disappointed with it. I realize that farm raised elk is mild in flavor, but that was not a problem. Rather it was the quality of the cut. Frankly, the rack was tough, and it contained a fair amount of tendon/gristle. Having had both wild/hunted elk as well as other farmed elk, this was not one of the better elk meats I have had, and I have had roasts, steaks, filets, and other cuts so it is not that I am inexperienced in eating elk meat. Perhaps Vernon's would do better to offer another cut of elk rather than the rack. The dry fig sauce that was offered with it was also in my opinion not the best sauce to accompany it. A red wine sauce would probably have been better at enhancing the flavor.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Restaurant in town!Vernons was amazing as usual! Been there a handful of times and it is always an excellent dining experience! Our waitor Gabe is amazing and really knows the menu as well as has a vast knowledge of wine.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMvery courteous, experiencedvery courteous, experienced and knowledgeable staff.

The waiter brought us a piece of cake and kindly wished us a Happy Anniversary.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA Special, Fun Place!I always enjoy going to Vernon's, because they make it fun to be there. Wait staff is outstanding, enjoyed one of my favorite music groups, the food, as always, is cooked perfectly, and it's always has a very romantic feel to it. I have often recommened Vernon's to others who have gone there and enjoyed it just as much.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMVernon's Hidden Valley SteakhouseVernon's Hidden Valley Steakhouse is truly a GEM! The ambiance is the best I've seen and each table situated perfectly for a Romantic Meal. The food was fantastic and the waiter and all the employees were incredible. A great place to celebrate a special occasion or for any time.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful evening with outstandingWonderful evening with outstanding service and food. Thank you for making our evening so memorable.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe entire experience wasThe entire experience was the best I've ever had in New Mexico! Probably top five I've had ever. The dark speakeasy ambiance was super cool, the wait staff extremely attentive without being overbearing, and the food was terrific. The dry aged steaks were best I've had in New Mexico!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was wonderful! Our serverFood was wonderful! Our server was awesome very knowledgeable. Music could have been better(more theme related) It was NY husbands Birthday I took him there as a surprise....he really enjoyed it. Thank you.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food for the high priceVery pricey but worth every penny. The food is phenomenal. Not a weekly date night place for sure, but very nice for special occasion date nights!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMVernon's was a great choiceVernon's was a great choice to celebrate my wife's birthday! the ambience was terrific. This restaurant is on the pricier side which seems perfect for special occasions. You are required to have a password to get in and the old mafia gangster ambience was a refreshing break from the usual restaurant scene in Albuquerque. Good food. Sme of the add-ons to the meals seem overpriced. We added shrimp to the steak. Three (3) shrimp will set you back $20. There was a gentleman who played piano when we were there. It set a more romantic atmosphere.
Overall great experience. Attentive staff3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good establishment. LoveVery good establishment. Love the atmosphere. My wife and I loved it.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGem that needs to be tried once.One of the best, if not THE best steakhouse in Albuquerque. It is pricey, but if you can save up or have an extra couple of hundred dollars to spare, this place is worth the experience. Gabe is an outstanding waiter, the food is top notch, and I was not disappointed with this visit. Will I return? More than likely yes.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Speakeasy atmosphere isThe Speakeasy atmosphere is thick as thieves in this unsigned North Valley steakhouse. The light is low -- depending on your table and age, you might need your pocket LED to read the menu -- and on the revenue the prices could raise the owner could pay off the force from the chief on down! There was a local band on stage from the relatively early hour of 7:30, and their music was great, though loud enough to wake the prohibition dead. The steaks are great, the sides are expertly crafted, and the wine list is excellent -- though the markup is high at the low end. In addition to your LED you might need a second credit card.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit toThis was our first visit to Vernons. We came to celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary and were pleased with the evening we had. Food was great, and the service was awesome. The jazz trio perfoming was also a nice change from your everyday dining establishment. Vernons was a great place to celebrate our special occation, and will come back in the future. Prices are kind of high, but I feel that between the food, service, entertainment and throwback feel of an old speak-easy, the price was worth what we spent.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic Night OutLoved the Speakeasy theme. Was very fun and different. We ate in the lounge area during the performance so I can't speak to the noise in the restaraunt. Bar was lovely with great drinks and fabulous ambiance. My steak was not the best but other items were tasty. The jazz trio, Entourage, was fantastic! Will definitely visit again when I am next in town.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for my fiance's birthday,We went for my fiance's birthday, our service by Gabriel was very attentive without being hovering. The ribeye steak was a little thin the prime rib however was delectable. The owner Michael was very cordial and spent time with us and our mixologist Daniel hooked us up with our favorite libations.
Overall it was a great experience and will be back for lunch3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMRather expensive, but greatRather expensive, but great for special occasions.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMediocre visit, quite unlike othersWe have been patrons of Vernon's for several years now and celebrate all of our special occasions there. We went for my wife's birthday this visit. We were the only couple seated in the bar area, at a booth. The bartender was our waitress. This was the first time that we were never asked if we were celebrating anything, even when I had roses sitting at the table for my wife. She never mentioned any specials either. Each time we have gone to Vernon's, which is usually for a special occasion, we are offered a free dessert to split, which is comped by Vernon's. This time, however, the waitress made us pay for a dessert and I had to ask for a candle to put on it for my wife's birthday. It was a bit of a disappointment from our previous visit...3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding SteaksMy husband and I visited Vernon's Steakhouse for our wedding anniversary. The atmosphere is very unique and romantic...definately a "no kids zone." I am not much of a meat eater, but would eat at Vernon's Steakhouse EVERY day if possible! It may require me to work two more jobs just to fund my new found love, but well worth the large bill!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA special evening was spentA special evening was spent with my sister from out of state; the food was the best I have had in years! My sister was surprised when we needed a password to get inside/ loved the gangster act.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDo it!the lobster was amazingly delicious! the steaks were perfect! the wine was divine! the ambiance and service was top notch. Leave Albuquerque and enter a whole new world!3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the concept of thisI love the concept of this restaurant...the mysterious entrance and highly entertaining way you gain entry. It's also refreshing to see that once inside, the attention to detail doesn't stop. Great food and great service in an lovely atmosphere.2/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday SurpriseThe food was great, the ambiance was amazing.
