Contemporary American
Prairie Star Restaurant and Wine Bar at Santa Ana Golf Club offers an unforgettable dining experience. Housed in an almost 100 year old adobe ranch house, the warmth and intimacy of Prairie Star is intoxicating. You may absorb the atmosphere of handmade adobe walls, kiva fireplaces and full vigas 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 where 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 Year's Day.

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).

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.

I'm grateful the place is open and able to seat in that beautiful patio. We had a great night out. The service was great. We loved the food, but the halibut was overcook. I know the style the chef was going for where you sear the halibut steak on one side and serve medium, but it was way overcooked. Still we were so happy with the experience it really didn't matter. Starters, entree sides, wine and dessert were terrific.

We went for their “wine and dine” special, it used to be just Wednesdays, now it’s Wednesdays and Thursdays. That’s usually a great value. Two appetizers, two entrees, a shared dessert and a bottle of wine for $69. They do a special wine and dine menu every week. Their patio is really nice, on the edge of the Santa Ana golf course with great views of the mountain. We haven’t been out much since the pandemic started, but this was really nice. We will definitely be returning.

Outstanding! We went with the Wine and Dine option. The positives: Both the Pork Filet and the Halibut entries were beautiful and delicious. The first course salad and soup was nice too.. The raspberry jam was made there and ..WOW. The dessert, a rich chocolate, would have been nice just by itself-without the added churro, mango and ice cream.
The service and attentiveness were exceptional. Due to COVID -and requirements to eat outside, we were moved several times due to the weather. They were helpful and not at all put out by the requests.
The East Mountain views from the patio are outstanding. Our waitress was lovely and accommodating. Possible improvement: We would have liked alternative wine offerings to purchase- as non of the pairings with the Wine & Dine were that great. But overall, fabulous experience!
