Fabulous food, creative menu, friendly staff. Our reservation (made months in advance & confirmed the day prior) was changed to 45 minutes later - it worked out since we were staying on the property.

I treated my wife and mother in-law to dinner. We ordered two different kinds of chicken entrees and a shrimp entree, which were all delicious! We also ordered an asparagus dish that was scrumptious. An excellent bottle of Pinot Grigio added another positive dimension to the evening. The waiter went out of his way to make our dinner a very enjoyable experience. He was kind enough to package up what we couldn’t finish. We’ll definitely return to P.F. Chang’s in Albuquerque! More

The wait staff was great, but the hostess was a hot mess. She didn’t know what she was doing and seemed very confused. We made reservations via Open Table but she told us it would be a 10-15 minute wait. We waited about 10 minutes when our party called and told us they were seated and waiting for us. I informed the hostess and she said, “oh yeah, I thought maybe I had seated someone with your reservation.” No apology. It was very frustrating. I also witnessed her completely ignore an elderly man who was trying to confirm his reservation. More

I was with a party of eight, so I'm writing only for myself. My partner and I had the barbecued pork quesadillas; she had a cup of soup of the day and I had one of green chile stew. All were fine. The Forque has accommodated my theatre goers group many times in the PDR (Private Dining Room). We frequently arrive before the kitchen opens at 5:30, and they've often found a waiter to fetch us drinks from the bar. Altogether a very good long term relationship. More

Discover Albuquerque

Albuquerque boasts a dining landscape that reflects the strong influence of Mexican cooking, harking back to the days when both Mexico and New Mexico were a joint Spanish colony. In this, the largest city of New Mexico, taquerias--and the tacos they serve--come in just about any style imaginable, including on top of Native American fry bread. Green chilies are an Albuquerque staple, and they're found in dishes ranging from hearty soups to savory breads. Southwestern classics aren't just for lunch or dinner. Huevos rancheros turns the taste of beans and tortillas into a filling breakfast meal. For those with a more mild palate, the city's multiple cafes serve all-American burgers and fries, and barbecue joints dish up hearty plates of smoked meat alongside tangy sauces.
