OpenTable Diner (New Mexico)

Dined 7 days ago

I am a huge fan of this restaurant but the meal we had that night was by far the worst meal I have had in a fine dining restaurant.
I ordered the fresh pasta with shrimp. The pasta was not cooked; very doughy. The broth or sauce was a gray / green color and was less than appetizing to look at much less eat. My husband ordered the lobster bisque and sea bass and was very ill all night . Maybe they have changed chefs; don’t know.

Been here many times. The sea bass is my go to. It was wonderful as always. My girlfriend had the pasta of the day. Noodles a little mushy and ok flavor.

Love the view. Waiter was a rookie but really trying. No issues.

Great bottle of wine

I'll be back to get my sea bass fix :)

When I made our reservation, I noted that we were celebrating our anniversary. No one was aware of this until the waiter asked and we told him. Otherwise everything was excellent!

Very pricey, amount of food not enough for what you pay for. Ordered Crab cake as an appetizer and paid $15 for a single small piece, I thought it was a ripoff, I was expecting more food for that price. Over all food had a good flavor but probably won’t be coming back.

Good food and views as usual but kitchen was very slow. It was good when it got there but 45 minutes for us and others waited over an hour-- is way too long.

Our son was visiting from out-of-state and so we wanted a special place for dinner -- this filled the bill, quiet so we could have a good conversation, good food well prepared. Very relaxing and enjoyable evening.

It has been many years since I dined at Bien Shur. Albuquerque has so few fine dining experiences, and I originally booked Geronimos in Santa Fe. Since it was Christmas, and I was hosting an out-of-town friend, I figured I should give the locals a try. For starters, I asked for a red mulled wine which came 20 minutes into the appetizer and was lukewarm at best, and not very spicy. It tasted like box wine with cinnamon topped and thrown in the microwave for a minute. My friend ordered a Cesare salad, but he complained it tasted nothing like a Cesare salad and was very bland. My panko fried shrimp with sriracha sauce was good, but was common and tasted like a Jinja type preparation. On to the main courses, I ordered the buffalo tenderloin wrapped in bacon medium rare. It was lackluster, not very hot and did not have great flavor, despite the $67 price tag and wrapped in a flimsy piece of bacon. My friend ordered the chicken, which was very basic. We drank one bottle of Pellegrino and did not order any wine, nor were we offered any wine. The best part of the meal was my friend's apple tart with rum raisin ice cream. I asked for the pumpkin mousse to go, and wrapped the leftovers. When I got home, the pumpkin mousse was not in the bag. I called, and left a message, but no one returned my call. We walked out the door paying the bill of $172, with a generous tip, which is disgraceful for the quality of food and level of service. The big red flag was there was no one in the restaurant and I can see why. A wiser choice would have been to eat in the buffet, as the level of food and service would have been identical or better. Our server was very friendly, and passed on our comments to the chef, and she told us the chef makes the salad more bland to accommodate the tastes of a wider audience--clearly a chef with no passion for food as art. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT! Michelen star prices at buffet quality presentation and service is not my idea of a good time.
