Californian
Classic and contemporary California Wine Country in the Northeast Heights: Welcome to Savoy, a sun-filled, unpretentious but sophisticated, wine-friendly restaurant!

Natural light from a wall of South facing windows reflects off buttery walls, warming the wood and stone of the main dining room. Our open kitchen piques your appetite with its scents & sounds and the energy of our chefs. A comforting atmosphere greets you in the Lounge before you’re drawn into the lush, vine-covered atrium to the West. From there, step onto the shaded patio and relax by the firepits as you take in a view of the Sandia Mountains.

The private Napa and Tasting rooms are equally inviting and suitable for hosting parties of up to 45. Click here for more information on booking a party at Savoy!

I've been coming to this restaurant on and off for over seven years. I seen it with talented chefs and those who still had a way to go. Savoy has two sister restaurants under the same owners: Zinc and Seasons. Zinc is my favorite for both the food and ambiance; Seasons is too noisy; and Savoy goes up and down according to its chefs. When I visited Savoy, it was the first night of their fall menu. We ordered the squash fritters for an appetizer; they were uninspired and tasteless. I had the scallops which were buried in a strangely seasoned couscous which totally disguised the subtle taste of the scallops. Savoy is well known for their prime rib; it may be a good idea to stick with that for your entree. Their salads are generally quite good. We ordered a new menu dessert item which used Ruby Chocolate. The crust was poor and straight out of the frig, which doesn't help crust. The Ruby Chocolate had strange texture, rather like paste. The flavor was good as was the chocolate chip cookie which accompanied the tart. Don't count Savoy out; it was a new menu on the first night; things will probably get better. Their bar scene is active and they have a bar menu. I was not impressed that they refused to make a Vieux Carre cocktail; saying that you don't know how in the age of instant computer instructions doesn't work.

Although our table had a view of the service area; not great. Food was good. We had the prime rib and cedar plank salmon. The peach and blueberry salad was tasteless. Fruit was good, but dressing tasted like oil only. Not good.

This was our first experience here. The service was excellent and the restaurant was very quiet so we could talk and hear one another. I would try a different entree next time, but the dessert was fantastic.

I had booked a reservation for my boyfriend's birthday and the staff was wonderful! They gave us each a complimentary glass of champagne and the setting was very romantic. Dress code required. Unfortunately my boyfriend's prim rib was not to his satisfaction and he returned his meal. The staff was very apologetic and did not charge us for his meal because he was dissatisfied. My meal was wonderful, the staff was wonderful so I would recommend this restaurant to a friend.

Excellent peach and blueberry spring salad to start. The trout and the snapper special were top notch. My husband had the wild boar -- and gave me a taste. It was fabulous. Our other friend loved the parmesan chicken. The honey mousse for dessert was lovely and light. Great service too!!!

First time we have had a server this bad. We had several co workers apologize for his lack of service. He would just disappear or take care of the table next to us and ignore that he was waiting on us as well.

We love Savoy and we eat there often. If we get this server again we will ask to be moved.

the Sea Bass was a bit fishy, which I didn’t expect. Aalso, my wife had the chicken breast and while good, it was over cooked and dry. I hope the kitchen can do a better job in the future, and match the quality of the restaurant.

We were visiting town for our anniversary and wanted to have a nice dinner to celebrate so we chose Savoy. They were not very busy for a Saturday night but for some reason it took quite a while to begin ordering. By the time we ordered we ordered our drinks, appetizers, and entrees at the same time. We both have dietary restrictions which they were happy to accommodate with only one minor hiccup. We both ordered filets for dinner which were both cooked exactly how we wanted them and the sauce was excellent. Overall, the food was great, but the atmosphere was very low key and service was very slow.

We normally celebrate every wedding anniversary at Savoy, because we love the food, ambiance and service. This year, as we celebrated our anniversary on Monday, we were initially disappointed because our usual romantic table in the private room was not not available.

HOWEVER, from the very first moment, when Eric escorted us to our table, we were pleasantly surprised over and over again for the next 3 hours. Eric acknowledged our anniversary celebration and then we discovered the flowers on the table. We ordered one course at a time starting with our favorite Black Pine Pinot Noir and your wonderful calamari followed by the caprese salad. Eric offered very helpful advice for each course and never rushed us. This timing enabled us to really enjoy each others company for this special celebration. Each course had a wonderful presentation. The filet mignon melted in our mouth and the chocolate truffles topped off the evening.

Eric showed a genuine interest in us, our anniversary, the types of food and wine we liked and our wish to really relish each course and our time with each other. His attention to detail without being intrusive and never rushing us is a real luxury that we seldom experience at other restaurants. He created the most supporting environment for this important celebration.

Thank you so much Eric!

This restaurant is slipping badly!!! They especially had trouble cooking steaks to the proper temperature. The sides were poorly seasoned and service has not been good for some time.

The worst part is that they don’t seem to care! That, for a restaurant that charges what they do, warrants the low rating.

Heard plenty amazing things about this restaurant so my boyfriend & I thought we’d give it a try for his birthday. Atmosphere is beautiful, and we were seated in a nice room off to the side from the rest of the restaurant which was nice & peaceful. The food was incredible & the waitress was so sweet & very attentive. 10/10 would recommend & we will definitely return.

We were in Albuquerque for the National Senior Games in mid-June 2019 and celebrated the completion of the competition (for us anyway) with dinner at the Savoy Bar and Grill. We got there at opening but found the service reasonably attentive given a fair number of people showed up almost as early as we did. The food was well prepared and reasonably priced. I had the iceberg wedge salad and the yellow fin tuna; my wife had the tomato bisque soup and the filet. Our waitperson, Stephanie, made us feel welcome and was helpful with suggestions for both food and drink.

The food and service was great, but we brought our own bottle of wine and they would not cork it for us. I am totally for paying a corkage fee, but I was mad that wouldnt even do that.

Hi there! I just wanted to let you know that this is not a house policy...it is a state law, the only people that can bring in wine to the restaurants in New Mexico are the wine distributors and is illegal for us to allow anyone else to do so, but if that law changes we will totally be on board with a corkage fee. i am so glad your experience was great and we apologize that we could not accommodate you bringing in that special bottle. Have a super day and thanks so much for dining with us!

We go there for special occasions. The food is always great and cooked to perfection. Service is always pleasant. We are perplexed as to why the wine list doesn't get updated as the wine is consistently a year newer than stated on the wine list.
