Contemporary American
Prairie Star Restaurant and Wine Bar at Santa Ana Golf Club has offered an unforgettable dining experience since 1986. Housed in an almost 100 year old adobe ranch house, the warmth and intimacy of Prairie Star is intoxicating. You may absorb the NM Territorial atmosphere of handmade adobe walls, kiva fireplaces and full viga and latilla ceilings while enjoying awe-inspiring and sweeping views of the golf course and the Sandia Mountains.

Our culinary team masterfully creates stunning Contemporary New American cuisine with global influences and Executive Chef Myles Lucero changes our menu seasonally to reflect the time and freshest ingredients at hand. Each dish is carefully crafted from the finest ingredients, locally sourced when possible, and organic, sustainable and fair trade items preferred.

Prairie Star serves prix fixe menus on major holidays, and you can find details at prairiestarrestaurant.com. We are closed Christmas Day and New Years Day.

Every was great. Would be five stars all around, but I thought the menu was a bit limited. Still, what we ate was very good, wait staff were excellent, and love the ambiance.

Thank you for your feedback and great comments on the food and service. Chef Myles' Spring menu is more limited than normal as we make baby-steps to re-opening and building food inventory after the period of closure. When we have fully re-staffed the culinary team and returned to business-as-usual, Chef will debut a new Summer menu and we hope that will make a better impression. Thank you again for taking time to let us know about your dinner, and we hope to see you again soon!

Prairie Star Restaurant has all we could possibly want when celebrating a special occasion. Celebrating our anniversary, we were their last patrons last before Covid19 forced them to close. We were delighted to celebrate Mother's Day there shortly after their re-opening. The view from the dining room is terrific. The menu, wine choices and food are impressive! The manager, wait staff, and especially our waitress went out of their ways to ensure a wonderful experience. Obviously, we highly recommend Prairie Star Restaurant.

Three couples went to celebrate a birthday and had the wine dinner. We sat outside as it was a glorious evening. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. The wine selections were excellent, we had the Reisling. Five if us had the rack of lamb which was outstanding. One had the salmon which she said was delicious. Everything was perfect, we will return!

As I shared with you, this was an important heads-up to forward to Chef Myles. He is diligently working to fine-tune his culinary team after this long interruption.

It was so nice to have you back at Prairie Star--the pleasure was ours! We are grateful your first evening back was enjoyable. We heard many compliments on the bisque, and your comments have been shared with Chef Myles. He is so grateful to be cooking for Prairie Star again. Keeping our golf course Wind Dancer B&G going kept him working through these long months, but not the same creative cooking that he revels in. Thanks and we hope to see you again soon!

I've eaten there many times and would recommend everything, except the french onion soup. That's just my opinion, it may be good to someone else, just not to my liking.

Thank you for taking time to share your comments. We totally understand about the soup and are disappointed it was a low point in your dinner.

I came away with a less than great experience, notwithstanding the covid precautions which did not bother me. Bread arrived luke warm. We ordered the ribeye steak dinner, and the meat was cut too thin, cooked too quickly at high temperature, and charred such that it was nearly inedible. The sauce was salty and burnt tasting. I ordered a 2013 Bergstrom Pinot Noir and paid the premium price of it for a 2016 vintage of the same wine without any adjustment in cost found among PS's other wines of different vintages.

I wouldnt return or recommend this for an experience I have enjoyed immensely in the past. Too bad...

The host insisted on diners wearing a mask to walk literally twenty feet thru the bar, to sit outside where a mask was not required. Not many critical thinking skills with this individual. The waitress, while experienced, had not had an opportunity to eat any of the food, so could not offer any useful suggestions.

So if you can put up with the automaton at the host desk and the uninitiated wait staff, you are in for a treat from the chef. We had four items and everything was great! Presentation, aroma, taste all superb. The buffalo burger was very, very good.

We had to sit outside, but when it got windy, we were asked if we would like to move inside -- presumably without a mask. (P.S. don't tell the host about this and don't tell him that a federal Indian reservation is not subject to the arbitrary whims of the state governor).
