On the plus side, the food was really good and generously portioned. On the little more frustrating side, it was a really long time before we got our food (and we had been one of the first to be seated after the restaurant opened for a week day lunch). The waitress had stopped once to tell us our food would be coming out soon, but it was still quite a while before we got it.

We both loved the place except one thing which is the garbage bin. As waiters entered the kitchen they tossed old bottles in there. So really annoying and loud, ruined the experience to tell you the truth. Will give it another try though

It was our first visit to High Noon. The food was great, the only complaint is the ribeye lacked flavor compared to the tenderloin. We will definitely return.

Unbelievably delicious food and drink! I had the tenderloin and my husband had the old town plaza platter. Both were delicious and one of the best meals we’d ever had. We also tried the specialty drink-man of war. It was truly a delight as well. 10/10 would eat here again!

While the location itself is special, we’ve eaten there twice and the food is entirely mediocre. The menu is basic, there are only three options for appetizers (chips and dip, fries, and steak bites) and while our salad course was fine, both of our ribeyes were overcooked and swimming in salty sauce, served with mashed potatoes so bad I think they might have been instant, and limp veggies doused in butter. While I can understand the place might have appeal to tourists walking around the area, we will not be back. The service was good, but nothing can make up for such pedestrian food.

This was our last dinner out before COVID-19 restrictions. Of all the restaurants in Albuquerque, we miss High Noon the most. We started with Brie Empanadas. They are a very nice and flavorful start to dinner. We all ordered salad. My daughter enjoyed the house salad, but my husband I enjoyed the flavor melody of the Cranberry Apple Spinach Salad. My daughter always orders the Steak Frites. She loves them. My husband ordered the Wagyu beef burger. (When I order it, I order without chili). He loved it and both of them loved their french fries with truffle oil. OK. I steal some. I ordered the Beef Tenderloin, which comes with truffle oil mashed potatoes. It's always served cooked to perfection ( I order Medium Rare). We shared a Dulce De Leche Cheesecake. If you don't have time for dinner, just come for this! And of course, this was accompanied by a bottle of wine. It's nice to have a flavorful bottle of wine at a reasonable price. We also enjoy the historic charm of the restaurant. Sometime, we time it when they have live music, which included this night. Although High Noon has a full bar, we've found High Noon to be a place where our family can talk to one another and actually hear!

Loved the historic feel and the professionalism of the young wait staff...Cody and Ben. The guitarist played at just the right volume and the food was outstanding.
My only request would be to have a steak a size between the 8oz filet and the 14oz NY strip or ribeye.
When back in Albuquerque I will certainly revisit High Noon!

This is a wonderful local favorite. The food is consistently good. The short ribs and beef bites in red Chile will change your life! We love the waiters, the bar is well stocked (Boodles Gin!) and the atmosphere spot on for New Mexico. Its been around for a long time and never disappoints. Bravo!

My cousin, her son, her granddaughter, and I really enjoyed our dinner here the other night. The decor is somewhat dark but tasteful. We were seated at a corner booth at a round table, which I have come to learn is a special table. I'm not sure why we were seated there except that I had made a reservation through Openable about a half an hour before we expected to arrive.

My cousin ordered the salmon (I always ask why order fish in a steakhouse but that's a story for another day), her son, who was celebrating his March 17 birthday early, had a huge, excellent portion of braised short ribs. The granddaughter/my goddaughter got a perfectly prepared buffalo burger, half of which she took home. My entrée was Steak Frites, ordered and delivered rare. Sumptuous on a bed of crispy, shoestring fries.

I'm planning to return next week to celebrate the Pi Day anniversary of the day my Susanne & I became engaged. Looking forward to another great dining experience!

Despite being carefully instructed about the various cooking levels by the waiter, the signature 8 ounce steak arrived cooked rare rather than medium as ordered.

Noise level was exceptionally loud due to uncouth diners at the next table. Why didn't the management have enough control of the dining environment to ask them to lower the volume and use their inside voices?

I just answered the question during the open table review process, "Would you recommend High Noon to a friend?" Yes. And even a better judge of the restaurant quality is, "Would you take a family member to High Noon?" Yes, and that's what we did. A family member came to visit and we wanted to take her to a great restaurant that epitomized Albuquerque - High Noon. We ordered an appetizer, Brie Empanadas. Our family guest said she'd order a meal of these...that good. She ordered the Cranberry Apple Spinach Salad, my husband the steak frites, and I ordered the High Noon Tenderloin. We shared our meats with our guest. She liked both very much. She loved the fries just as much as we do. We ordered the Dulce De Leche Cheesecake because it's too good not to. Our family member was impressed with the restaurant and went around the different rooms to check out the different themes. She told us that when she comes back in May, she'd like to return to High Noon.

I was blown away by the Brie empaneda's, the memory of which has me salivating right now... Truly delicious.
The Steak Frites were good, but would have benefited from a bit more jus or gravy, even on the side. Berry Cobbler was very very good.
Drinks were fine and adequately checked upon. Very reasonably priced.
I'd come back anytime and will remember this place for the next time I am visiting Abuquerque.

Food claims to be traditional but found it lazy, overly worked, and poorly presented. The “Tres Amigas” was served with cold queso; we sent it back to be reheated. The “Plaza Plate” was multiple dishes (sampler) served cold on a much too small plate. The filet mignon was served with mashed potato stuffed enchiladas. It was heavy and flavorless. The margaritas were too sweet.

Would give 3.5 overall if able. The Red Chile Beef Bites were cooked perfectly, but the sauce tasted like it’d been thicken with raw flour just before service. Everything else was under seasoned. The saving grace was great device and fun atmosphere.

Visiting ABQ with family and looking for a good steak and ambience. We couldn’t have been happier. The building, room and ambience were perfect for old town and the tenderloin was excellent, as was the service! High Noon will henceforth be our go to place for steak! Excellent all around.
