    Great food - friends from out of state got to try the green chile stew and stacked enchiladas. Steak cooked perfectly. Not only did our server check on us regularly (but not annoyingly so), other service staff did too to refill water glasses, etc. Thanks for a lovely evening!

    You pay for the ambiance and location (Old Town). The food was good but the steak of the steak frite dish was a tad dry. A small cup of demi glaze costs extra. All in all, it's a good experience and worth an occasional splurge.

    We walked in and waited at the hostess stand for about 5 minutes before being greeted. The hostess arrived and checked our reservation and seated us. Our waiter, who seemed very shy, was not very friendly at all. When he brought our waters and drinks, we always said thank you and he didn’t acknowledge. As we were ordering my son ordered a sirloin and he said “we are out of sirloin”. My wife ordered the Old Town Plaza Platter. The waiter said “you can get that but we will have to substitute the taquito for something else”. Not a huge deal. I ordered the chicken sandwich and guess what?! “We are out of chicken”. We should have left but didn’t. When the food arrived, my wife’s old town platter tasted like a frozen dinner. My son’s ribeye was over done and lacked flavor. It was covered in steak sauce. The salsa and queso were pretty good, the chips were very stale. The truffle fries and margaritas were amazing! Food was over priced. Would not recommend.

    I love this restaurant! The food is great, especially the Christmas cheese enchiladas. I always get an appetizer of the Beef Bites in Chimayo Red Chile. They are so good! My guests enjoyed their first visit, where we celebrated one of their birthdays. The food was great, and the service was excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves Mexican food!

    Green Chili stew and tres leches cake were outstanding. Loved learning the history of the building from the late shift female hostess. Very accommodating to our desire for smaller portions by allowing us to split menu options without a fuss… Wish they had paper drink menu. Didn’t get alcoholic beverages because phone scanner would not work and started off dining experience irritated.

    Excellent place to show out-of-towners the best NM cuisine without going to Santa Fe. Location in Old Town is a bonus. Spacious interior, low noise level during weekday lunchtime. I think the green chile stew would be better with some beans, but YMMV.

    After living in Albuquerque for many years, this was our first visit to High Noon. However we won't wait too long for our next visit because this one was excellent. We hosted a foreign couple whom I thought would enjoy the atmosphere of the restaurant and all four of us were very happy with the food, drinks and atmosphere of High Noon. There were a couple of minor delays in service that were the only reason my rating was not higher. I recommend this restaurant.

    High Noon very welcoming with the Open Table reservation. Very comfortable local atmosphere, great staff. They were very responsive and allowed us time to digest the menu. Great balance of soups/salads, New Mexican and American mains. The hot came hot and cold cold. NM wedding soup outstanding ( a special). Waiter couldn't have been more gracious. Highly reccommend

    I cannot believe all the positive reviews for this place. Absurdly low quality food that is way over priced. There was nothing special about any of this meal. I got the flat iron steak and frittes. It was nothing but a cheap piece of sirloin with some brown gravy over a small handful of shoestring fries. It was tough and bland. Worse yet, it came out luke warm. My boyfriend got the meatloaf. The meatloaf was gray covered with that same brown gravy. Potatoes came out cold. We decided to order a side of house made Mac and cheese. Honestly, it was probably the best thing we had but it was nothing more than butter and cheese melted over some penne noodles. Nothing special about it, and literally was a three ingredient Mac n cheese but it was better than everything else we had. The brisket relleno was $14 for a single relleno that you'd never know had brisket in it if you didn't read it in the menu. For two of us, no alcoholic drinks, we somehow racked up a $100 bill and left very disappointed. I cannot recommend this restaurant and will never go back. At this price point, there are way better restaurants in Albuquerque. I don't mind spending$100 for a good meal, but this is not it.

    This was by far the BEST restaurant we ate at during our stay in Albuquerque. The steak was AMAZING!!! Wine selection was nice and the cranberry vinaigrette was to die for. The servers and host were amazing as well. The ambience was perfect, just can’t say enough good things or recommend this place enough!

    We arrived on time, was seated right away. One of us ordered a Bloody Mary and it was fantastic. We ordered a bottle of red from a local winery, also fantastic. Food was amazing. We had the tenderloin and my partner had the black n bleu burger with his bloody mary. Had espresso martini's for desert. Perfect. Will be back to try other entree's on the menu

    Beautiful restaurant, love the adobe style. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable. The margaritas we had were very tasty! However a bit over priced for how small the glassware were. The queso served with our appetizer was “ok”. Seemed rather grainy though and not very spicy. The meatloaf entree was pretty well made, wished it came with a bit more of the demi glace. Next visit I’ll try a New Mexican dish!

    I can't say enough good things about Highnoon. We arrived early but we're promptly seated anyway. The food was delicious. The service was excellent. The setting and atmosphere perfect. My only complaint would be that the noise level high enough that it was hard to carry on a conversation.

    Six stars for all! Last minute reservations here in Old Town, Albuquerque with husband. We were greeted by friendly front desk, seated on time and waiter instantly arrived to take beverage order. Asking what to share, we settled on the Brie Empanadas, puff pastry stuffed with brie. Served with roasted garlic, raspberry coulis and green chili and apricot chutney. Flaky, light and delish! For entree, we shared the Old Town Plaza Platter, spiced chicken taquito, pork tamale, blue corn cheese enchilada, brisket stuffed chili relleno w/rice and perfect veggies. The kitchen was kind to split the entree on separate plates. Everything was well-prepared and we devoured our meal. Our waiter was super attentive and cordial. The restaurant is in an old building with low-ceiling, multi-room, adobe-style cozy atmosphere. There was a bar and several small fireplaces burning , which added to a wonderful experience. Highly recommend and certainly make reservations.

    We shared an excellent cranberry salad. Hubby had meatloaf - was delicious. I had shrimp pappardelle, also excellent. Terrific margaritas. Only downsides were a slightly crooked table and a table with a small child next to us. Understand that's not the restaurant's problem, but not the best experience when sitting next to less than attentive parents and a kid.

    Such a cozy little place and the food was good. Our waitress was very friendly and welcoming. The only negative was a $3 charge for a slice of cheese added to a Bison Burger. That just seemed like way too much to charge for a slice of cheese.

    It was good food and very helpful service. A little slow but place was very busy. Chantel was slammed but still gave good service. Food was tasty especially the guacamole in the Tres Amigo app, wife really like meatloaf, son liked the Old Town platter especially the brisket relleno and I had a really good shrimp enchiladas. Out of prickly pear so I had the down the hatch margaritas which I really liked. Overall, a good meal. Service was stellar though.

    Such a beautiful place we have been going to for years, food, service was amazing. Parking can be difficult, saw several people park but go shopping rather than into restaurant, they need to put better signs that the little parking lot is for patrons of High Noon. Had to park far away but once there, was wonderful.
