Chef Myles' Soup of the Evening
Great food and wonderful service. Will be doing it again soon
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!
World class patio and view. Excellent service. All the food was fantastic except my $34 ribeye was way overdone(ordered med-rare) and tough. Our wine by the glass was very good.
It was so nice to have you back at Prairie Star! We are pleased that you had a good evening and thank you for corresponding with me privately regarding your rib eye. 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. We appreciate you sharing your experience and thank you for assuring me this will not deter you from dining with us in the future. See you soon!
Great place for special occasions. Really love this place@
Thank you so much for the love! We are so happy to welcome our guests back! Please don't wait for a special occasion to visit again, even if it's drinks on the patio.
It was so nice to be back at Prairie star. The chef did not disappoint with all the courses we ate. The tomato bisque was fantastic as was the flourless tort. Thanks!
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!
Enjoyed the heated and nicely lit patio!
Food and wine 🍷 was great on the pre-fixed dinner. Plus, great service!
Thank you for taking time to share your rating and comments. I'm so glad you were able to enjoy the patio and I've forwarded your feedback to Chef Myles and the service staff. We appreciate you and 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. Since it was a one-time special, I trust we'll have another soup you will enjoy when you next dine with us. We appreciate the recommendations and do hope you will return soon.
Scallops were great. French Onion Soup was hot and tasty. Wine was good.
I'll be back!
Thank you for letting us know you enjoyed your Wine and Dine dinner! We do hope you can come back again soon.
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...
Thank you for letting us know about your evening; we are sorry to hear of your disappointment. This has prompted us to go over our wine list to make certain it is correctly updated and your other comments have been shared with our culinary team. Management will be contacting you, and again please accept our apologies.
Wine & Fine specials are usually excellent
Thank you for taking time to share your rating and comments with the dining community! We appreciate you and hope to see you again soon!
Food was phenomenal. We had the Wednesday chefs menu which, twice now, has not disappointed at all. Can’t wait to go back.
Chef Myles sends his thanks! We appreciate you sharing your feedback and do hope to see you soon!

It was a wonderful experience. The food was delicious, service was attentive, and the views were stunning.
We are grateful to hear your evening with us was so enjoyable! I have shared your review with Chef Myles and the service staff, and the kind comments are so appreciated. We hope you will dine with us again soon!
The view and atmosphere are the highlight of this restaurant. We sat on the patio and appreciated the quiet, serenity of the night. Also, everything is made in house and the quality of the food is evident.
So nice to hear of another satisfying evening on our patio. We are so pleased you enjoyed our 'wide-open spaces". Thank you for the compliments to Chef Myles too; I have shared with him and he will be pleased. We appreciate you and hope to see you again soon!
out standing once again, wait staff does a fantastic job, well be back soon! thanks
Thank you so much for sharing your feedback with our dining community! I appreciate your praise of the service staff. Their job can sometimes be challenging and they deserve to hear positive feedback as they do their best. We are grateful --thank you again.
Nice dinner. Food and service was good, just had some room for improvement on both. Would definitely return.
We are grateful to hear you enjoyed your dinner with us and thank you for taking time to share your feedback. We value your business and hope to have a chance to provide an even more enjoyable evening in the near future. Thank you again.
Wed and Thurs night specials are always good and such a value! We had steak medallions and vegetables with a delicious salad, plus apple cinnamon dessert. And a good bottle of red wine.
Always glad to find a Wine and Dine fan and so glad you enjoyed your dinners. Chef Myles gets so much pleasure "flexing his culinary skills" with the unique menu each week. It is so nice to be appreciated and we hope you will be back soon!
Good food and drink. Great service. Scenery cannot be beat. Beautiful patio seating.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your evening on the patio. The view, the peace and quiet do provide a serene dining experience. I have shared your feedback with Chef Myles and the service staff. Please come back soon!
Wonderful overall, amazing view of the Sandia mts and moon view. Food was very good. Glad we braved the construction
Thank you for leaving your feedback, and so pleased to hear you enjoyed your evening. I've shared your comment with Chef Myles. We love that you saw a dramatic moon. Our view is so wonderful and we hope you will be back soon for more! The light changes with each evening and we never tire of it. Thanks again.
Very nice , scenery was fantastic
So glad to hear you enjoyed your evening at Prairie Star. We thank you for taking time to leave your comments. We hope you will be able to come back again soon!
The food was excellent until the corn ravioli. It was drowned in a tasteless basil cream sauce that was hugely disappointing.
I'm disappointed to hear the corn ravioli was a letdown to an otherwise great dinner. I have shared your feedback with Chef Myles, and please accept our apologies. Thank you for your gracious rating and we sincerely hope you will consider returning for dinner soon.
The outdoor seating is very nice. The tables are far enough apart that It’s easy to have a conversation without raising your voice and easy to hear. The view is also very nice.
Thank you for taking time to leave a review, and we appreciate the private note giving us a little more insight into your evening. We do hope you will consider dining with us again, and please accept our apologies for missing the mark on service.
Everything was delish - from soup and salad to entrée and dessert! Staff very attentive to requests and needs. Thanks guys!
Thank you so much for your feedback. We are grateful to hear you enjoyed your evening at Prairie Star and took the time to share your experience. We hope to see you again soon!

Prarie Star is a great treat with a spectacular view. The food is delicious and the service is outstanding. I plan to visit as soon as I return to the Albuquerque area.

We enjoyed the Wednesday Wine and Dine menu at Prairie Star. It's a wonderful deal and changes every week. The food and service were excellent and the view was amazing as always.
Thank you so much for your five star rating! We are grateful to hear you enjoyed your evening with us, and pleased to have another Wine and Dine fan. Thank you for sharing your kind comments for prospective diners. We value your patronage and hope to see you again soon.
Beautiful patio weather the evening 6 of us got together for the first time in months. Cocktails, beer, wine, food, service were excellent. Incomparable sunset! Prairie Star is never a disappointment, but the food this evening was great. Not one complaint. Server was exceptional. We asked for slow service & she timed everything perfectly! This place is a Middle Rio Grande gem!
What a pleasure to find your kind review and recommendation! Thank you so much for choosing Prairie Star for your get-together. We are grateful to hear the evening went well for your group. Please come again soon!

You can't beat a delightful dining experience that includes a delicious meal, wine, dessert and relaxed ambiance for $69.
So glad to hear from another fan of Chef Myles' Wine and Dine. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts! We appreciate you and hope to see you again soon.
Very nice in all respect s. Nice views. Staff pleasant.
Thank you for taking time to leave a nice review for us. We appreciate your recommendation and hope you will visit again soon.
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).
Thank you for the compliments on Chef Myles and his team. We made sure to let him know you enjoyed your meal. Your feedback was also shared with the GM & F&B Manager. They were glad to know the safety protocol put in place by our owners was being followed by our staff. We are also hoping to return to normal times and hope you will consider returning to Prairie Star.
Great outdoor dining !
Thank you for the five-star rating. We are grateful to hear you enjoyed your evening with us and appreciate you! We hope you will return soon.
Lovely outdoor evening on the patio. Sunset over mountains with excellent food. Waitress gave us recommendations that were delicious. We’ll be back.
We are grateful to hear you enjoyed your evening at Prairie Star. We appreciate you taking time to leave your feedback for the dining community. I have shared your kind remarks with Chef Myles and the staff. On behalf of us all, thank you !
I really enjoyed the outside patio. Our seating was nearby some humming bird feeders and it was very entertaining to watch them come and go. Helped take our minds off all of the troubles in the world and just simply relax.
We are grateful to hear you found respite at Prairie Star. We appreciate you leaving your feedback. Thank you, and please come back to visit again soon.
This place goes above and beyond to accomodate me and my family. Jerianne is a phenomenal server.
We are thrilled to find your kind review! I'll make certain to share with Jerianne and our management team. We appreciate you and thank you for sharing your experience with the dining community. See you soon!
Their W/Th night Wine & Dine dinners are a little pricey, but worth every penny in our experience of having been there every week for the last 2 months. I hope no one else finds this place b/c it is starting to fill up and it gets harder to get a reservation at the time we prefer sometimes.
On behalf of us all, thank you so much for sharing your feedback and for your support. We appreciate the solid recommendation for the Wine & Dine evenings. Chef Myles enjoys his opportunity to put a unique menu together each week, and we agree, the dinners are a great value! Looking forward to continuing to host you for dinner in the future! See you soon!
Really nice place, great food and servixe
