Our waitress was not well trained. She was very nice but didn’t know the food or drink menu well. The cheese queso appetizer was excellent as was the steak and salmon. One order was delivered incorrectly and another was sent back because it was cold. We were given a discount due to the problems we had.

Our service was terrible. We were seated for 20 minutes before anyone got our drink order then another 20 before we could even order an appetizer. The appetizer was misleading (cheese tray). It looked like it was plated by my 2 year old son. My burger was good, but my fries were maybe 1-2 inches long each. They looked like reheated, bottom of the bag McDonald’s fries. My husbands pork had more fat than meat. It was very unpleasant to watch him try and make a meal out of his plate. The best thing on his plate was his rice. That’s disappointing!! Also, the martinis were not made as described on the menu. This was our first visit and it will also be our last! We’ve heard such great things about this restaurant but our experience was awful enough to not want to give it a 2nd chance!

The salmon was cooked fine. Vegetables were over cooked and the description of fried artichokes would not describe what I received. Overall I would describe the dish as ‘home cook’ ... as in nothing special. Service was pleasant but extremely slow.

First time I was seated on the patio. It was wonderful and the food was delicious. I had the pecan crusted catfish special, so good. We usually have lunch here so it was the first experience with their awesome dinner menu. We shared bananas foster for dessert, worth the drive from Carlsbad.

Adobe Rose was very good for the price you pay. My husband had the filet mignon, which he usually doesn't get, and it was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. I had the chicken fried chicken and it was very good. The absolute best part was the garlic mashed potatoes. We had the dessert of the night which was a velvet German cake and a rainbow cheesecake, and those were less than mediocre, I would not recommend the deserts. The atmosphere was nice, we sat outside, the weather was a cool 45, but they had an abundance of propane heaters that kept the patio warm. My husband did not like the idea that his diet coke came out of a bottle though.The one thing that I would change is how the waitresses interact. We had an incident where one waitress took a table that was seated in our waitresses area and our waitress became angry. The one waitress stated that the table had specifically asked for her, but our waitress was very upset. They need to work on the way the waitresses interact.

I have eaten at Adobe Rose nearly every time I am in Artesia. For the first time I was disappointed as my pork chop was 1/3 raw. The server did comp 15% off the price as compensation.

The first time was a Friday night. We had to retrieve our own drinks from the bar and wait over an hour for dinner until we complained to the owner. Food was very good. Owner compensated for poor service. 2nd time, service and staff improved tremendously. We would go back again.

When we arrived 5 mins before our reservation the Table was not ready, and we were not offered a seat or drink.

At the table we were given a Valentines day menu only. When I asked I was politely told it was the only menu for this evening, which I personally found disappointing but given this would be the busiest evening of the year, it is understandable but would have been nice to have known when booking.

My Beer was brought without a glass. This is what I expect in a sports bar not a restaurant, after asking for one I had to chase up on it as it still had not arrived when the appetizer came.

We were seated in the extension area, stark bright lighting with no music (but you can hear it in the main restaurant when you walk through) or atmosphere.

One of the tables was being used by a waitress who was folding cutlery in napkins. There were chairs down one side of the room with more cutlery and napkins left on them. This adds to the feeling we are inferior guests being seated in this room.

Given the very limited menu I was highly disappointed when the butternut squash Soup was served lukewarm but was very tasty

Crab cakes were just OK and also lukewarm.

We were told the prime rib was being remade as it was too well done, however that is perfect for us. When it arrived we were surprised by the large amount of unrendered fat.

Service was overall poor. Slow, forgetful and disorganized, they did not work as a team and I observed one server dancing through the dining area waving her arms and clapping her hands.

Overstretched even with a limited menu.

$90 for a mediocre meal, 2 beers and 2 soft drinks with poor service is highly disappointing.

Desert was wonderful (we got it from Walmart)

The food, as always, was fantastic. The only downside is the wait. Last few times I’ve been it takes over an hour after you order to get your food. So take that as you will. Great food, just takes forever to get.

I took my wife to Adobe Rose for her birthday on a Saturday night. The place was packed, but we had reservations and were seated immediately. Our waitress was very attentive, friendly, and provided outstanding service without hovering over us. We did not have to wait long at all for our drinks, our appetizer, or our entrees. We received our food very promptly. I was surprised given how busy they were that night.

We both had the salmon and it was outstanding. They even had my favorite Scotch! The golf cart transportation from your vehicle to the entrance, and then back to your vehicle is a really nice touch.

We ordered two different types of burgers. Both were excellent and cooked to order. The cup of chili that came before the meal was very good but only luke warm. Not sure why the fries that came with the burgers were cold and not sure why the coffee I ordered came to the table cold. The biggest surprise of all was the cream brule served cold. Cold but very good.

Other than that, not a bad place to go before seeing a performance at the Artesia Art Center.

The main part of the restaurant has great ambiance. Unfortunately if you get stuck in the back room there is about zero ambiance. Salmon was great. Chicken is good. The corn muffins in our appetizer were cold and dry. Service was attentive. Price is reasonable.

I had my elderly aunt with me and it was a bit chilly outside. I asked if they could seat us somewhere that was warm but instead we were seated near the entrance. Every time the door opened, we were greeted with a cold breeze.
I should have requested a different table as I believe we would have been accommodated.
