Californian
Abundant and beautiful California Wine Country in the Northeast Heights. Welcome to “Savoy”! A sun-filled, unpretentious but sophisticated, wine-friendly restaurant. As you walk into the dramatic high-ceiling entryway, you are moved in all directions. To the East you have a frosted view of the tasting room, loaded with fresh flowers and walls of glass-encased wine. To the West you get a glimpse of the lounge bar leading to the vine-covered patio. Light, open and airy with butter-colored walls, dark wood and black & white photography of wine country all come together to create an elegant yet surprisingly comfortable atmosphere in the main dining room. The dark and contemporary edge to the room is offset during the day with an abundance of natural light from large windows and three strategically placed skylights. That oven will be our culinary focal point for the exhibition kitchen, where our guests will see and smell the citrus roasted duckling, the roasted platter of shellfish

The lamb was amazing. The toasted farro had a nutty and slightly sweet flavor. The charred green onions and tzatziki were nice punches of flavor. Yummy!

The halibut special was a bit pricey at $45 for a small piece and small amount of supporting condiments. It was cooked properly but overpriced. We will not return.

The food and service were great, but the time between courses being served was painfully slow. We understand that a Monday night is not prime time for a restaurant’s kitchen staff, but we weren’t the only diners in our room that were frustrated by the pace.

Again, we loved the food and the server did her absolute best, but the whole experience was disappointing.

My husband's and I are at Savoy to celebrate his birthday. From the time we entered, they acknowledged his birthday and after the meal they treated him to the dessert that he ordered. Our server was very perky and efficient. Food was delicious. An enjoyable dinner.

I don’t know why but every time we go to Savoy we sit at our table for about 10 minutes before our server ever comes by! Maybe that’s how fancy restaurants work but it’s a little off-putting for me because I’m usually there to celebrate something and I want my drinks to toast with! Otherwise the meal is always delicious and the environment is always superb!

This is a very nice restaurant that hit the spot after a long drive. Quibbles on food - calamari could have been better with a little spice. Lamb shank was excellent though as was the tuna. Would highly recommend this place.

Our server clearly had no idea what she was doing. She questioned several of our requests, even though we asked for things listed in the menu. When she poured wine into the wine glass, she dripped it all over the glass which then dripped onto my white pants when I proceeded to take a drink. She then failed to input my husband's dinner order (which she tried to blame on the kitchen rather than just taking responsibility for her mistake), and by the time he finally received his food, the rest of the table was already finished eating. The quality of the food was not at all worth the price. Terrible birthday dinner. We will not be returning or recommending Savoy to anyone.

I made reservations for myself, husband, and 2 children. Upon making the reservation it asked if we would like any accommodations. I put if they can acknowledge something on our table for our anniversary. When we arrived, we had a table in the corner near something that was blowing cold air out. The greeter said he was going to bring us bread but never brought us any. Our waiter asked what we would like to drink, our menu had zero options for soft drinks. We only seen opens for alcohol and wine. We had to ask the waiter what other drinks were available. After making our order, we waited AN HOUR!! For our food. Our waiter explained there was a large party. We didn’t get offered something to snack on while waiting. My children were hungry and cold. Thank god they are very well behaved children because they became impatient wanting to get off the chairs but didn’t. I offered a Parmesan chicken and the noodles were stiff and dry. My daughter ordered a salmon but wasn’t all the way cooked like we asked and cold in the middle. My son ordered pasta with sauce and his pasta was cold. We mentioned this to the waiter and he said that’s the way salmon is cooked and the pasta was just off the stove. I asked what about my noodles and he said that’s the way they are made. We did not finish our food. We decided to pay the 126.00 that did not deserve to be paid for. The waiter said he couldn’t do anything about the bill and asked if we wanted a to go box. We said no and left. Let’s just say we went and ate pizza afterward. It was supposed to be a romantic night for me and my husband and was supposed to be promised an amazing meal for the price of the plate. I was so disappointed. We dressed up for this event and ended up at a pizza parlor afterward. NOT the way it should have been. Total waste of my money.

We spent $56 or so for the buffalo rib eye. It was ordered twice at our table. We would have been better off with another cut of meat at a much better price point. Other items at the table were fine. Our sever was nice. The noise level is always higher than we would like, it is not a low light intimate restaurant for two, but we know that. If you are going to any of the two bar areas this is the place. The East side of Albuquerque does not have many nice places to eat and Savoy is right up there. We would recommend Savoy and would explain the good and the not so good.

This restaurant is truly outstanding in every way. The tuna I ordered was very rare and came with wasabi mashed potatoes and ginger, which made it remiscent of sushi. This was very creative. This was truly a satisfying dining experience. My only complaint is that they did not have more gluten free options for dessert. We will definitely come back.

Waitress Stephanie suggested getting steak cooked one step less, that way it could be cooked a little longer. Great idea, but she didn’t come back to ask, and I would’ve sent it back.

We always like to dine here for special occasions. In an effort to beat the Valentine's Day rush, we made a reservation for the day before, and got right in when we wanted. The hostess and server were very pleasant, but not overly attentive. They have a very good variety of entrees, and the presentation was very nice. My wife had scallops, and I had prime rib. Both were delicious. They also have a good selection of wines by the glass (which is all we ever do). One thing I like about Savoy is that the dining area is reasonably quiet; we didn't have to shout in order to hold a conversation like is the case at other "trendy" restaurants. We didn't have dessert, but did look at the menu - they have a good list of options.
