Bien Shur - Sandia Resort and Casino Ratings and Reviews
Set atop the 9 story casino building, Bien Shur is elegant, beautifully decorated and meets the criteria for a special occasion destination. The service is professional and attentive, without being intrusive. The cocktail and wine lists provide many choices, and the food was delicious.
Service was excellent, and we had a table with sunset and city lights views. Noise level was tolerable.
Food was ok. They reimbursed us for the lobster bisque which was really bad. They screwed up the veggie order on my husband's turkey dinner, but they brought him a whole new plate so he had plenty to bring home. (The sweet potato or butternut squash replacement wasn't cooked well enough to eat, so he had to microwave at home). I feel bad because our server was fantastic, but I wouldn't recommend this place. Maybe it was because it was a holiday, but it wasn't packed, so not sure what the issue was.
Outstanding. We were seated promptly with our choice of a window table or fireplace. Our server wss helpful but not intrusive. I had the New York strip and it was cooked to perfection. Juicy and tender. The only downside was some gristle. My wife had the pork belly special and pronounced it outstanding.
Bien shur at Sandia Resort has, in addition to the most beautiful, delicious meals, the absolute most breathtaking Southwest view of any dining venue in the area. To watch the sunset on the Sandia Mountains from the 9th floor restaurant is almost a spiritual experience.
My daughter and I had the times of our life. It was her birthday and I hadn't spent time with her in a long time. The waitress that served us made it a very special occasion my daughter won't forget it and I will never forget the time that I spent with my daughter that I love so dearly at the place that we both loved. Everybody was so great. The look on my daughter's face was worth a million dollars thank you guys for the most memorable evening ever
Was a first date, ordered prime rib Rare. Came out medium well. My date decided to wait for my "3 minute" tenderloin (That server talked me into). 10-15 mins later, steak finally arrived.
If I'm eating at a Texas Roadhouse, or something like that, don't expect perfection. But as highly recommended as this restuarant came, would've thought they could at least do rare prime rib right.
The food and the ambiance were top notch. The views are spectacular and the lounge has live music starting at 9PM. There are 2 bars upstairs and they have have a great selection off drinks and food . The service was top notch by the staff. Overall it was a great time and we will be returning
I planned an amazing evening with my girlfriend and it was truly amazing. Our server Adam was nothing short of awesome. He listened that my girlfriend and I were going to share between the two of us and what he did was have the the two dishes split for us. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. My girlfriend and I had such an amazing evening!!
I had a "jumbo" crab cake appetizer which was good, a little dry and crumbly, but tasty, about the normal size (not jumbo). An interesting pre-dressed Bien Shur salad and braised short ribs served with brussel sprouts. The short ribs were very tender and tasty. The service was perfect, right on time and not fussy or intrusive. We had a $48 Concha y Toro chilean cabernet which was very good and was on the low end of the price ranch. For dessert a chocolate/raspberry cake which was good, but average. On the whole, a nice meal, unbelievable view, great service, a a tad pricey overall but the view is worth it.
We were in town for the Balloon Fiesta and wanted a nice dinner. We made reservations but had to change them at the last minute. Bien Shur was very accommodating on a busy weekend and it was appreciated! Food was outstanding, service was equally stellar! It made our vacation that much better. Afterward we enjoyed some gaming at the Sandia Casino downstairs. A great evening!
Waiter never brought bread basket- had to ask. He did stead us away from Prime Rib due to multiple people saying it was tough and sending it back that night; however, two of us ordered pork tenderloin special for $$$$$ medium rare and it was very well done. Waiter didn’t offer to redo, comp a percentage. Nothing but a “gosh sorry”.
My experience with Bien Shur in the early years was outstanding with the quality of food being exceptional and staff very attentive and friendly. Sadly my latest visits have left me less than impressed. The view remains outstanding if you can get a table by the window, and ambiance is still good, but the quality of food for the price has declined over the years. My NY steak wasn't as tender as one would expect and service was just average and not what one would expect in a restaurant of this nature. I would not be able to recommend this restaurant as I have in the past.
Sandia Hotel Resort needs to take a serious look at what they consider Gourmet meals, also the front end staff (greeter) needs to take a course in proper protocol regarding greeting/seating guests. This was our anniversary dinner, not a mention or expression of any acknowledgement although I had made it clear on three occasions that this would be a "special" dinner. The steak I ordered was tough and tough to chew, overall I was greatly disappointed. The saving grace was the view, which was worth the price (overpriced food) by itself.
Food was lukewarm when served. Had the impression that food had been in the kitchen for too long ready to be served.
Waitress was informed beforehand that we had a concert to catch afterwards but if it wasn't for us chasing the check, we would have missed the opening of our concert.
Disappointing, especially considering dinner at this restaurant is pricey!
Very disappointing. The food was mediocre and the food presentation was poor, absolutely no color or garnish on the entrees. Also, the food lacked flavor. I ate there three years ago and it was far better. Needs to be kicked up several notches in order to classify this restaurant as a fine dining establishment.
Bien Shur offers a spectacular view of sunsets against the backdrop of the Sandia Mountains. For this alone, a visit is worth the effort and the price. During my most recent visit I requested a table with a view in the opposite direction because I see that sunset view daily, and because I wanted to see the lights of the city after dark. I wasn't disappointed.
The food, however, was a disappointment. Previous visits have provided delicious offerings. Perhaps the kitchen was rushed because the room was more crowded than on my previous times there, but my wife and I both characterized our meal as "so-so".
