Would be an excellent place except:
Ordered Salmon and was told they were out of salmon, there were 3 tables of people in the restaurant.
Ordered seafood fettuccine which was supposed to have mussels, scallops, and shrimp for price of $28.00. Food served was with scallops 3, shrimp 2, no mussels, no bread, no salad and small portion size for dinner and $28.00 for pasta dish. Albuquerque is not New York!!
Waitress never mentioned the lack of ingredients, chef watched while I ate and did not mention the lack of ingredients like hoping I would not notice. Want to charge those prices, need to have it together people. I have not heard of a shortage on salmon either.

This place could be great! Our waiter was great! The bar serve was amazingly slow. We ordered a bottle of champagne that actually had to be chilled...hum.... Just a little spotty on the service, had nothing to do with the server. The food was pretty ordinary.

Another lovely evening, thanks to Hayden, and the rest of the wait staff.
Hayden has a gift for engagement and knowing how to answer food and drink questions—all the best servers do.
The only downside: regardless of who the associate is, if you see folks without water, or with a table filled with empty plates—remove it, that kind of seamless service helps everyone.

Enjoy;

We had a great time. Our server, Nick, made our night. After a bad day of service at other establishments in town, he was going to be scrutinized, through no fault of his own. He rose to the challenge and de-fused all the other horrible service we'd encountered throughout the day. We were able to thoroughly enjoy the Twinkle Light Parade from the warmth of our window seats. We hope to go back again after the holidays and will be requesting Nick as our server.

We have stayed away for a while because the food was not great. We thought we would give it a try again.

A side note- the new transit system makes it impossible to get across the street if you are traveling west on central, you have to make a huge detour to get there.

We were pleasantly surprised to see a completely new menu. The food was good overall. Unfortunately, my order was wrong twice. They have a dirty burger and a Cochino burger- which is just silly since it sort of the same word. First they brought the wrong one- it has Tex mex style Chile- not my thing. So they took it back and offered to take a percentage off of the cost.
Whatever, so I sit there while my husband eats. The server apologized profusely, then a while later brings me the correct burger- cooked wrong. Meat was nearly raw (my husband could tell from across the table in the dark restaurant) and fried egg yolk completely cooked- I asked for “over medium”. When asked how it was, I was honest- but not a jerk about it. The waiter brought us the check. He didn’t even bother to ask if we wanted dessert- he asked everyone else around us. I was very nice. I never saw the manager. The waiter just kept apologizing. The burger was 15$- they took off 6$.

Here is the thing- I don’t need it taken off my tab- but it would have been the right thing to do. They messed up my order not once- but twice. Is it really that hard to make a burger? In the end I would have covered the cost through the tip.

I understand food service is a hard job. But if your customers aren’t happy- it seriously affects your business. And don’t name two food items that are so close in structure - essentially the same name. They may think it is cute, but it is not working for them.
Another aside, my husband’s food was perfectly fine. The fries were good. I ate my side salad-was tasty, good thing I ordered it. I would not have eaten otherwise.

It is unfortunate, I bet I would have liked them again.

Third visit to Nob Hill Bar and Grill and once again, the restaurant did not disappoint. We all had burgers cooked just the way we asked and like them and we all had cocktails. The doors were open so we had a beautiful view of the Sandia Mountains. The traffic was going by on Central but we could not hear the cars. Yes, we'd dine at Nob Hill Bar and Grill again and again.

You and a date can have a full meal with two or three beautifully presented and very flavorful appetizers. Their cheese plate is wonderful and it comes with hard to find quince, fruit, and nuts. They also put duck confit in tacos made out of cool Jícama slices. A very good experience all around.

I took my parents here for brunch on Mother's Day. I booked my reservation that morning, and we arrived at 11 and there was plenty of space, but it wasn't completely barren. My mother enjoyed her sausage breakfast burrito, and I took a stab at chicken and waffles. My father had avocado toast with smoked salmon. We all enjoyed the meal and the ambiance. Well done!

Was excited to try this Nob Hill located restaurant in Abq. Since it was Restaurant Week in
Abq and a special menu was advertised, I took my chances. I booked a reservation on Open Table. Arriving at the restaurant, I mentioned Open Table but got no response. Since there were plenty of empty spaces, I was seated. Ordered the Rest. Week menu offering and sadly it was not good. None of the courses. Not even close. Would not recommend to anyone.

We were all pleasantly surprised by our meal at Nob Hill Bar and Grill. There were five of us in the group and we all ordered something different and each thought their meal was tasty. We all said we would go again and try another entree because we were torn between selections.

Called 4 times to advise that we were stuck in traffic and the phone went to a fax machine every time. Service was neglectful. Sat with dirty appetizer plate and empty glasses for quite a while before we got attention. Chair was missing a foot. Seated near the open door to the patio and long after the sun went down and the temp with it we could not get them to close it. Then we were asked to move to another table because they 'forgot' to set up a 13-top for a reservation and needed our space. This is not the place it was a few years ago. We're done!

Their food is excellent, as they make their own salad dressings in house. I love their freshly prepared pares an truffle fries, served in little square wire baskets. Yummy and cute presentation. Staff was very attentive to my dietary constraints. We've dined there twice in.last 2 weeks and has been consistently delicious.

Nob Hill Bar and Grill had great duck mole enchiladas...and that is about it. For being a bar, they had the worst beer selection I have seen in a quite some time. The servers were in no hurry to take our orders much less find out if we were doing fine or not. It took them a good 10 minutes before they came around to our table and see what we wanted to drink. We then proceeded to order our drinks and they took forever as well. I could actually see our drinks sitting right on the bar for at least 5 minutes with our server frantically going back and forth passing them by. I felt like getting up and picking them up on my own. This place was empty save for three tables with not very big parties, yet the servers acted as though the place was jamming the way they were running around like chickens with their heads cut off! The drinks and the food came at the same time...unacceptable in my books! While the mole was good, the rest of our food, including the so called "Nob Hill Burger" was less than average. The only reason I came her was for the 1000 point reservation, but I will not be returning to this sad restaurant.

Hope they survive the Central Avenue fiasco. Went fairly late on a cold and rainy Wednesday night. The bar scene was busy, the restaurant side was dead. The drinks were slow but good, the food was slow but good. Parking was a pain due to the street project. Note that the 'parking behind the building' appears to me to be at the other end of the block. Ok usually, not so much in a downpour. 'Parking nearby' would be a better description.

Nice, young place, interesting menu with different tastes, good service. Having to share dinner with a couple of hairdressers working on patrons may not be the best idea in a restaurant?! Colorful (as the colors they were applying) but may be not that hygienic!

We ended up leaving the restaurant because we sat there for 15-20 minutes and no one cam to get our drink order. We had so much time that we were able to look at the menu and re-pick what we wanted to eat 3 times. We were ignored by the hostess when we were trying to look for our waitress. We left to go to Matanza's which was wonderful.
