The restaurant was very busy when we were there and the kitchen wasn't the speediest. However, they got everything correct (including special requests) and the food was very good. They easily accommodated special needs. Friendly and casual experience.

Was expecting a fresh seafood treat and felt like this was anything but that. I felt like maybe my meal was a boil in the bag
Three of us was $100 + and while our server busted her butt the overall experience was anything but positive, I work at a local Campground and would definitely not recommend this to our guests

While the food was very good, it was not exceptional, but the prices were right! The shrimp boil was tasty & plentiful. The fish in the fish & chips was good too. My spouse enjoyed the clam chowder soup as I did the gumbo, but beware! The gumbo is very, very spicy. Not for the faint of heart. Viv, our server, was the ONLY server, but under the circumstances, she did a great job.

This was one of the worst dinners we have had in Albuquerque. The service was terrible, the food was terrible the seating was terrible. But the ice tea was very good. Seriously the waiter was a clown. The seafood gumbo was spices but had NO flavor and no seafood other than two lousy shrimp. The chicken gumbo was the spicy but the chicken was mushy and no flavor. The seafood udon was with no flavor and mostly broccoli. The fish and chips were a dry frozen piece of garbage fish but the fries were good. The snow crab were tiny legs and over cooked. We did not stay for desert and will not be going back.

Service was not the best... A server had called off so it looked like the manager was running everything. He was extremely nice and pleasant though. We were not in any rush so it didn’t ruin our dinner. The food was amazing. I am from Seattle and know seafood well. The clam chowder was decent, I had the shrimp boil with garlic butter sauce and it was delicious. It was a little spicy which was awesome. I did see another review about soggy corn which was true but ate it anyway! We had fried bananas and ice cream for dessert and was tasty. I would like to come back to try more of their menu. It’s hard to find good seafood here but I think they do a good job with it!

Excellent seafood. The entrée can feed 2 adults easily with left-overs. Because of that (1 'meal' for 2 individuals) it is not too pricey--just right actually. I highly recommend. The total cost was around $55 with an appetizer such as clam chowder which my wife and I also shared with each other. Excellent place.

We enjoyed the seafood, but the corn was mushy and the parmesan fries barely tasted different than regular fries, except they were greasier because of the cheese.

April 18, 2017. Drove up there from Los Lunas cause we saw the Chef on Good Morning New Mexico. The dishes he made looked intriguing. The wife and I orderd a trio sampler had Calamari, Sweet Chili wings, and Jalepeno Corn Hush Puppies. In addition we ordered a few more items. Awesome original cuisine recipes !!! Try the very unique Sweet Potatoe Bisque. Crab cakes were divine. Jalapeño Corn Hush Puppies...... just have to say...."Mmmmmm" on those. Calamari was excellent. The wings really were tasty with that original Sweet Chili flavor. Annnnndddddd.......no words can express, or be adequate enough, to describe the fresh hot Chocolate Caramel Funnel Fries.....those alone are an orgasmic experience for the palate.

99 Degrees doesn't post the menu online. What you will find is boil-in-bag seafood with seasoning. Order your favorite seafood with your preferred spice/sauce and you will not be disappointed. The King crab, clams and shrimp with garlic-butter was our choice with a medium house sauce on the side. That was plenty of food for two, but we ordered the scallops just because the combo was so good.

We went to 99degrees during Restaurant Week, having heard nothing about it. I had a bowl of gumbo that was excellent, the best that I have had outside of New Orleans. It had a good spice level and excellent flavor. My main dish was scallops. They were prepared nicely, done as a seafood boil with sausage, potato, and corn. My wife had a pan fried soft shelled crab that was excellent. We finished the meal by splitting an individual chocolate cake with a white chocolate shell and covered with a warm chocolate sauce. It was very good.

I think that the seafood boil here is better than the others available in town. Less overwhelmed by butter and with better flavor and spice level.

Those of you in Albuquerque know that Central/Nob Hill area is being effected by construction. Knowing this, I made a conscious effort to patronize the business there. Most of the eateries along central are above average, or they offer really awesome ambiance. However, 99 seemed to miss the mark a bit. I am not sure who the first was, but there are several "bag and boil" seafood eateries in Albuquerque, and they didn't do too much to distance themselves from the competition. Food was good, can't complain about that. Prices comparable to other "bag and boil" restaurants. However, the selection was small, and the service was slow and inexperienced. I can't totally knock the place, but I can' totally recommend.

Went to,meet some friends here on a Friday night. There was a large birthday party behind us that was quite boisterous so it was hard to have a conversation. Service was slow taking our order and getting drink refills. Owner made up for all this by giving a 20% discount and free dessert even though we didn't complain. Food was OK.

Visited 99 Seafood Kitchen for my son's birthday. The staff are friendly and the service was good. We had the Parmesan garlic fries and calamari for appetizers, and scallops and shrimp in the milder House sauce for the main course, The calamari were just ok, but everything else was delish. My son was also given his choice of dessert for free, and the fried bananas with ice cream did not disappoint--also delish! A bit pricey, but that is to be expected with market price seafood. Highly recommended for special occasions, no need to dress up, as the atmosphere is casual. Nice to have another seafood boil place on town.
