This is a beautiful restaurant if you can stomach the trip up and back. You must have a reservation for the fine dining portion, but not the bar area. The bar area is smaller though and has limited views.

The fine dining portion is larger, with city views and higher priced food. It’s “gourmet” but good with large portions. My group had the pork chop, tiger shrimp, catch of the day, and prime rib. All were good but the polenta that came with the pork chop could use more seasoning. But they give you this black salt for the table. The slaw that came with the shrimp was really good.

Overall, I would definitely recommend. The food, service, and views are worth it.

We were a party of 4, celebrating a birthday. The food was delicious, the view incredible and our server, Jennifer, was outstanding. We had several dietary restrictions and we all found something to enjoy. The dinner WAS expensive, but the birthday girl was worth it.

Everything was wonderful our server Thomas was amazing
All would have been perfect, if not have been for an employee complaining about us taking too long to finish our dessert (birthday dinner). Employee was not part of our (4) wait staff. He was very rude snd loud and wanted to make sure we could hear that we were taking too long.
Our reservation was @ 7:15pm ~dessert was served at 9:15pm.

We had a very good time, everything went smoothly. Our server was attentive and sweet. Only issue : the ribeye came med rare as ordered, but was CHEWY, also didn't have much presentation. Not what you would expect from this type of restaurant. We didn't say anything in an effort to just enjoy the evening, which we did. The rest of the food: chicken chop, pork chop, crab cake were very good, and the polenta was a favorite side.

Very nice setting, however please realize besides being somewhat overpriced, you are going to have to pay $30 roundtrip for each person to travel on the tram.
They need to offer a discount tram ride if you're going to have dinner.

My husband and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary together with ten 3 and it was a wonderful experience. Our server was prompt and pleasant and the food was terrific! The night tram ride experience was also a fun addition to a wonderful evening.

I was pleasantly surprised by Ten3. We ate there when it was High finance and were not impressed. Traveling extensively in the military, we've been to some superb places and Ten 3 proved to be a contender. We will go again.

Not a spot for a romantic dinner.

Made reservations well in advance for anniversary. We arrived early for 6:15 and offered to wait for a table by the window. Told we couldn’t wait even though we were early. Told at time of reservation there was no way to reserve window seat. Instead, sat by the walkway in the back. Waiters didn’t even know whose section it was and we sat for near 20 minutes before anyone came to get our drink order. Tuna appetizer was on quality with Whole Foods Sushi. Pork chop was average, steak was nicely prepared. Then came the offer for dessert. Waiter dropped off desert menu and disappeared. Perhaps he went on break. After 20 minutes we flagged down another waiter and asked for our check. Finally our waiter reappeared and apologized.

Food came very quickly after ordered as if they were trying to rush us out of the restaurant and turn the table, despite having other tables infilled. Despite the person at the base of the tram and the hostess saying happy anniversary, the waiter was clueless about it on the reservation. Though they called in advance to warn us of a business casual dress code, families and people wore sweatshirts and tennis shoes.

We spent our anniversary Saturday night seated in the middle back of the restaurant by the doorway/throughway while two families with kids came in after us and got the window seats. When we asked to move when 4 tables opened up by the window within 15 minutes of our reservation we were told no. Way overpriced for quality. Perhaps trying to appeal tourists, not locals

There are a dozen more intimate restaurants/better food in ABQ. A special anniversary dinner with my wife it was not.

Beware if looking for a romantic quiet spot. Perhaps with a reliable waiter and a window seat. But as we were told at reservations & when we arrived, even with reservations well in advance, no guarantee. In other words they can’t guarantee this place is right for your special occasion.

Pricey but on par with high end steak houses. Million dollar views at sunset and through the evening. Still a little short staffed making waits longer than other similar caliber restaurants. Staff that was there was great.

While the food was great, I don't think it's worth the price. Especially when you add in the hefty tram ticket cost. Also, I was disappointed at the nearly absent holiday decorations which could have been magnificent in that beautiful space. Add in the frigid tram ride, not heated, I probably would not go again at night in cold weather. The view of the lights of Albuquerque at night, though, wow.

Ten 3 is a WOW. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful and has the most magical view of the Albuquerque city lights. Our server was excellent, as was the food. We ate in the fine dining side of the restaurant (reservations required) and it was pricey but worth it for the extravagant meal we had. This is a great special occasion restaurant.

* Please be sure to read all of the "instructions" because the only way to the top is on the tram and this requires some advance planning. *

Wonderful meal with an exceptional view. We had reservations for fine dining, for which the wait staff offered impeccable service. Everything from the crab cake, beef tartar appetizers to the filet and specialty New York strip were prepared perfectly. It was a phenomenal place to take a visiting guest.

Our server did a phenomenal job and we really appreciated him. Atmosphere is beautiful and you can’t beat the views of the city.

Reservations are crucial to have. Food feels overpriced. Additionally we found the dress code quite off putting. This is a restaurant on top of a mountain— fitness/outdoor-ware should be allowed, and even encouraged. Let people hike La Luz to enjoy a good night at your restaurant.

Having just moved to ABQ and knowing not a single soul, we enjoyed a fabulous Thanksgiving meal at a charming corner table featuring a epic view of the Sandias. Our server (I think his name was Nick) was charming and incredibly welcoming. And holy cow - the food was beyond scrumptious!

The restaurant was crowded and it seemed the staff did not know how to handle the situation. There was a line to get in and when asked do I talk to the person with the tablet or the individual at the podium we were told it did not matter. We went to the individual at the podium and informed the lady we had reservations. She lady at the podium could not check us in for the reservation. Not sure why we were informed we could go to either when the lady at the podium was it equipped to take reservations. We ordered a bottle of Malbec and they were completely out and did not have a back up. For a restaurant that is considered upscale they lacked customer service.

After waiting many weeks to attend this reservation, and having been instructed concerning the appealing dress code, my date and I were very disappointed in the check-in process (no chairs to sit in in the bar or the waiting area) and the fact that the dress-code was not enforced AT ALL. People were there in sweat pants, tennis shoes, tee-shirts, jeans, hoodies - not at all what we expected for the ambience and the price point (very expensive). The design and ambiance is beautiful, and the food is good/very good, but for the price point, I would expect a much higher standard. If you are ok with spending $100/person for food and one drink, not including the tram ticket to get there (roughly $40/person), to sit with clientele that are wearing sweats and hoodies, than you'll be fine. If not, give this place a pass, despite the good food and lovely design.
