Los Poblanos Historic Inn & Organic Farm Ratings and Reviews
Interesting place. The food was good, but not really special. We went for breakfast on Sunday and had the pancakes, an omelet, eggs benedict, plus a danish roll, a cup of hot chocolate and a glass of OJ. All of this cost us almost $80 including tip (for 3 people). We thought the prices were over the top ($5 for a cup of plain hot chocolate). I'm guessing they're targeting the prices for their hotel guests, because as ABQ residents, I don't think we'll be back.
My wife and I had not been to Los Poblano's new restaurant, Campos, and decided to give it a try. In short, we had a wonderful time and really enjoyed how friendly and accommodating the bartender, waiter, and sommelier were. We had innovative and tasty wine-based cocktails to start (they are working on their liquor license) and a delicious white wine we had never had (Vietti, Roero Arneis) with dinner. We began dinner with the Campo beet "salad," which was so good. The mole negra (with lamb) and the crispy duck special were very flavorful and well portioned. Dessert was another wine we had never had, Quarts de Chaume, that was a delicious grapy, sweet libation. We will definately be back for dinners, drinks and appetizers on the patio (when the weather is warm), and when (if) they get their liquor license. If you have never been, please try it, you won't be disappointed!
First time to the new Los Poblanos dining. Had a fabulous meal. started with the hush puppies and homemade sausage. both were excellent. the Lamb Mole was tender and the sauce just perfect. service was just right and what a lovely setting on a winter night. can't wait to go back again.
The evening was challenged by the very loud smoke alarm going off at least 4X, with firemen responding in full garb, walking through the dining room at least that many times. Was there not a back entrance to the kitchen ? Kept interrupting our conversation- get that it may have been a real fire. Also, our served was alittle paternalistic - and we were having a Birthday- selected the cream puffs (excellent) - there were 4 of us and he brought 3 - should have asked us to pay for adding a 4th. I guess I would say the ambiance is awesome, menu good, still refining the execution.
I really enjoy this place. You can literally see in the kitchen and even walk into there while food is being prepared. The farm house atmosphere is really cool and has just enough New Mexican flavor and decor to make it an authentic find. I find the many dishes I’ve tried to be inventive and push my food comfort zone without crossing the line into strange flavor territory. The service is always outstanding and the farm store has the best finds! Thanks for elevating my dining choices Los Poblanos! Keep up the good work!
As always the food was fantastic as was the setting and atmosphere! Our only minor issue was our waitress seemed a little disorganized which is to be expected as the space is new. Will definitely keep it at the top of the list. I’m quite certain they will get things straightened out.
Restaurant and inn were disappointing. We had reservation for anniversary night away at the inn and decided to eat at Campo. We had a reservation but they were so far behind we were not even seated for an hour. During our excessive wait we were not offered complimentary appetizer or drink. When we were finally seated, they were completely out of bread and of one of their entres. The wine was extremely overpriced, with a glass costing the price I have seen for a full bottle at the store. Food was good but the cost and wait time made this a very disappointing experience.
We went for New Year's Eve dinner as this has been one of our favorite places to dine in Albuquerque. They have moved the location of their restaurant to the old dairy barn. It is a nice space but a bit loud and not as intimate as the old space.
We arrived on time but had to wait in the bar 30-40 minutes for our table. Once seated we did not see the waiter for 10 minutes. He made a quick introduction and then said he would return with the wine list. 10 minutes later he surfaced again. We had a 40 minute wait between appetizer and main course. They had run out of bread. The food was very good but the service was incredibly poor. I'm hoping they get the service aspect of things worked out. Their excuse was that it was a busy night. Either they overbooked the restaurant for New YEar's eve, or else they were woefully understaffed. There seemed to be lots of staff running around but none seemed to be helping us enjoy our meal.
We had the New Year's Eve 5 course fixed menu meal and while each course was really very good the pairing was odd. For example the dinner began with a squash soup with spiced pistachios that was just delicious, but the second course was a mixed bean salad with crab. This dish was also very tasty but beans are filling and this was a huge serving of mixed beans with only one or two small scraps of crab, which didn't really taste like crab. Then there was the third course, which for some unexplained and not very obvious reason was the tamale with red chili, which while good didn't seem to go with the rest of the meal. The 4th course was duck breast with spiced beets and lentils and maybe kale. The cut of duck was excellent and cooked extremely well and I found the dish overall very flavorful. And then there was Desert, the fifth course. It was a donut with I believe a pistachio glaze. A donut for dessert, on New Year's??
Then there was the service. Our server was excellent but he was struggling against issues beyond his control. Specifically the kitchen did not seem to be able to time the arrival of each course so that there were long gaps between courses. Maybe just a matter of more practice.
Ambiance would have been nice had we not been seated at a table right next to a walkway and the wine cellar with its constantly opening and loudly closing door. (And yes, we had reservations.) Ambiance would be the only thing to recommend, though. I had been to Los Poblanos for the holidays years ago in the Meranda (sp?) dining room and was really happy with the experience so I thought I would try it again for New Year’s Eve. There was some kind of mixup such that our table did not have a server assigned and two tables that arrived after us were served first. Fine, mixups happen. But the service subsequently was horrible beyond excuse. First time I’ve ever 1. Gotten up to get a utensil for my date myself rather than wait for someone to come by and 2. Left after the main course when originally planning to stay for dessert. Server had the gall to tell us to feel sorry for him when he came with the check, after an evening of only showing up rarely, and always at inconvenient moments. (I should be thinking about his troubles instead of thinking how much I regretted not making reservations somewhere else for a special occasion date?!) I realize holidays can be tough but when I got up to ask for a utensil he was just chit chatting. First time I’ve ever left a fine dining experience, holiday or no, disappointed and angry. Food was also so so. Will not be going back.
Reservations for 10 am. Had to wait in a crowded bar room past 20 after. Our table was situated in the midst of several tables that were too close. So close that the servers bottom was touching our table when they spoke to our neighbor table.
We waited 20 minutes to see anyone once we were seated - had to flag down a server to take drink orders. Food was lovely. Not worth the experience. I had super high hopes of this as it has such a wonderful reputation. Perhaps the holidays made it it little less than on par. Very noisy and crowded.
Established in 1937, Los Pablanos is surely one of New Mexico’s most beautiful venues. With its 25 acres of lavender fields, farm buildings, alpacas, and roaming Guinea hens the well maintained property is simply magnificent. The new restaurant offers a remarkably affordable weekend farm-to-table brunch second to none. The waitstaff is friendly and attentive. The menu changes with the seasons to reflect what’s grown by our farmers and ranchers. The farm store next to the restaurant has a darling atmosphere with coffee and fresh treats. Los Pablanos is simply a delight.
We had reservations at Los Poblanos Historic Inn & Organic Farm for our 11th wedding anniversary. The food was delicious and the ambiance is great for a romantic dinner with your significant other. Plan on being there a while, though. I realize they just opened recently, but they need to get their rhythm down. It took us an hour to get our meal after sitting 15 minutes after they opened. It took them a long time to get our dessert after ordering, which I assume is nothing more than slicing a pre-made dessert. Once we did receive our dessert, the waiter said he would return with silverware, but did not. Luckily our original waitress came after 5 minutes with our silverware. We should have only spent one hour total there, but ended up spending close to two hours.
I had very high hopes for this however the experience was not good. I made a reservation for 2 for 10:15 and we were not even seated until nearly 11. I specifically requested a booth when making the reservation and we did not get one even though there was one available. Once seated, our waiter did not come to our table for at least 15 minutes and when he did he said he had other things he needed to get done before he could wait on us. There goes another 10 minutes. This restaurant is small and I counted at least 10 waiters/bussers. There is no reason the service should have been this slow. On top of that, the food was mediocre at best, very small portions for over $15 a plate. The waiters were not attentive and always in a rush. With a reservation set for 10:15, and the slowness that occurred, we were not even out of the restaurant until nearly 12. Ridiculous. Maybe we will try again for dinner. But I will not be back for breakfast.
We were excited to check out Campo for the first time. I love Los Poblanos and enjoy seeing them thrive. The field to fork restaurant concept is interesting and I think patrons would enjoy it even more if they could get a quick tour of the kitchen setup in the next room. It looks unusual.
First off, the food was excellent, and in and of itself worth the money. That said, the experience around it left a little to be desired. For a premium experience that requires reservations well in advance, I was surprised at the length of time we stood waiting for our table after our reservation time (15 minutes). As the evening progressed, we found ourselves with our drinks and appetizers an hour into the experience. I'm not expecting the speed of light, this is a relaxed fine dining experience after all, but an hour is a bit of time. The main course arrived 20 minutes later.
The hostess and wait staff come across as a bit artificial with excessive effusiveness (hostess) and canned quips (waiter) that were frankly annoying. With Los Poblanos, which I've been familiar with your years, I expect a friendly down to earth approach. The quality of the food, the preparation, and the presentation are worthy of pride and enthusiasm, but the human interaction felt rehearsed and contrived, rather than just knowledgeable and good-natured. My son mentioned that the pretentiousness was off-putting.
Would I recommend the restaurant for its food? In a heartbeat. The rest needs work.
Introduced another group of northeast heights family friends to the charm and sustainable living model of Los Poblanos in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque. They departed as full converts with Campo at the top of their list for some of the best farm to table dining and ambiance offered in New Mexico. Well done!
First time dinner at the new Campo, having been numerous times to La Merienda. No more amuse bouche and the lovely, intimate quality of the prior spot has evaporated like champagne bubbles. Super loud, which was one of the many notable qualities of the old place, that it was quiet and you could have a conversation. The waiter was overbearing, another big change from the previous style where the waitstaff were so unlike a high end restaurant, that is to say, you might actually want to have your dinner with them, they were so unassuming, pleasant and knowledgeable. The food is still very good and I will go back but will be wistful for the feel of the old farmhouse dining room.
After its recent renovation the character of the restaurant has changed dramatically. Gone is the 'hacienda' feel of Los Poblanos which has now become much more ordinary. I guess it may still serve well for breakfast or lunch but no longer for special dinner occasions. A real pity that the owners went for accommodating a larger crowd rather than maintaining the distinct flavor that made the restaurant truly stand out in the NM restaurant scene.
Great Food Choices, Staff was very pleasant, helpful and attentive without being overbearing. We had a truly lovely evening and would recommend it to any one looking for a memorable evening of fine food and good company. The new restaurant building is just perfect.
