    Service was the issue and the menu items were not explained especially to categories of spiciness of New Mexico cuisine. One of our friends was not happy as she specifically ask the waiter that hot spicy food was a problem and for direction of how to order. She had to pick things out of her food. The waiter was not experienced or did not care ( l lean to inexperienced) Anyway it could have been better and at least comp her the wine.

    We were at the Hotel Albuquerque due to a gift from our kids. This restaurant was fabulous. Chicken enchiladas were amazing!! My husband says the coconut margarita was one of the best things he's ever had!

    We used to love going to Garduno’s at Hotel Albuquerque. The atmosphere was always festive and the food hot, spicy and delicious. Drinks were always good, as they were on this visit. Our service on this visit was excellent. But the food is so bland compared to how it used to be. If I had wanted bland Mexican food, I would have stayed in my home city of Tucson and eaten there! But New Mexican Mexican food should be anything but bland. Where is the famous New Mexico heat? Also, while your salsa was very good and had some fire, your chips were too thick and flavorless. We used to have to control our overeating of chips and salsa before the meal. But not this time. I had exactly 3 chips and no desire for more. But I did put some of the salsa on my dinner, which helped spice things up. Please bring back the heat. Also, we enjoy eating sopapillas with our meal. They were served with the meal, but they were not fresh. Real, authentic New Mexican food is one reason we return to Albuquerque time and time again. Please bring back that authentic New Mexican flavor. It is the #1 item on our list of things which make New Mexico so special.

    Service was really bad! We waited over 30 mins just to get some wine which never came. We decided to leave due to the very poor service. This is the second time we’ve had really bad service. I can’t recommend this restaurant. The patio was very beautiful however.

    Food was horrible! It was cold and tasteless. Our service was horrible as well. The waitress rarely checked on us even though it wasn’t even busy. I was embarrassed I took my mom and grandma here for Mother’s Day. Everyone was very disappointed. We love the Garduno’s by the Cottonwood mall but this one in Hotel Albuquerque sucks!

    We went on Mother’s Day the menu was a lot smaller than the menu the was shown on line. The waitress seemed to think that us being at the restaurant was an inconvenience. The food was good. There was no dessert available. The margaritas had large chunks of ice.

    We love Garduno’s at Hotel Alberqueque. It’s such a beautiful hotel and the architecture is gorgeous. We took my mom for Mother’s Day dinner on Saturday so it would not be so busy. However, There were two weddings going on so it was quite noisy. Our waiter was excellent and gave us great service. Since COVID the menu is smaller and the food not as good as before. Hope it will improve as we distance ourselves from the pandemic. Overall it was a good dinner (not quite great)

    My review may be unfair because I remember years ago when Gardunos was a fine Spanish restaurant and my family routinely went there for Paella. The hotel is still lovely, but the restaurant now serves so-so southwestern food. Our chips were greasy and thick, the beans bland and congealed, the corn pudding too sweet and mushy, and the enchilada and chili reyeno equally uninspired. I also had one of the worst margaritas I've ever tasted, so don't go for the bar.

    The service was very good and the room was very inviting. The drinks were good. But the food was below average. Refried beans were dried as if they had been sitting in a pot or in the microwave too long. No sauce for the enchiladas. The shrimp tacos needed some sort of topping or sauce. They were very apologetic and nice but it just wasn’t great food.

    My experience at Guardunos is that the draft beer is warm, so I specified that our two Negra Modelo drafts be served in frosted glasses. The beer arrived warm in unfrosted glasses as usual. The beer was the right color for Negra Modelo, but it was not Negra Modelo. We drank it anyway. The food and ambiance were good and the service pleasant.

    Forgot how lovely the outdoor space is here. The tables were very well social distanced. Sanitizers throughout the entrance. Shrimp fajitas were really good. Our service was good as far from the kitchen as we were. If you are looking for a great spot to meet up and catch up with a lovely outdoor setting with minimal noise, good food and service and trellises, archways and water features that truly provide wonderful ambiance this is a solid choice. We enjoyed it and will be back.

    It took them almost 10 minutes to acknowledge us at our table and asked for our drink order and give us chips and salsa. It did take a significant amount of time for us to receive our food and some of it was cold. The manager did come over and apologize and comped our meal and the waitress took the responsibility of not acknowledging us right away. It is a really beautiful area to have dinner or lunch but I was a little disappointed in the service and the food. However we will give them another chance.

    A business colleague and I met for lunch at Garduño's on a quiet winter's day in February. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our dietary requirements and couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. The food was fantastic with quality ingredients and generous portions.

    Our server was very unhappy and definitely did not want to be there. We ordered an appetizer and it came after the meal when I asked about it. Trying to get drinks refilled was an imposition. Our dessert came with our appetizer. What they called Carne Asada was burnt roast beef. We had the worst service I have ever had in my 62 years. I would definitely not recommend this restaurant to anyone. I am usually a very generous tipper, but the server got nothing.

    We were seated in the lounge area. Only two other parties were there. Two servers tended to the two parties while ignoring us. Not sure why. It wasn't that dark and we were seated a table away from the other party. We waited 25 mins watching while the two servers poured water, brought more chips, etc to the others. We tried to get their attention but nothing. Needless to say, we felt like crap, got up, and walked out. I did mention to the hostess we had reservations and on the way out, mentioned we didn't get served. Too bad, we really wanted to like this place. We walked over to Little Anita's and got the gold star treatment.

    Food service and quality good. Hostess absent and we waited while other folks walked in and took tables. I had to go to the kitchen and ask for help.we were then told other folks had seated themselves at our table. We were then seated in the dark in another section of the restaurant. The lights were turned on but we sat another ten minutes before meeting our waitress. Our waitress was very good ( and in fact two of the wait staff who served at lunch the prior day were extremely good - Daryl and Leo). Both meals were very good as were the drinks. I did however cancel breakfast reservations for the next two days as they don’t seem to value or acknowledge them.
