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!

It was great, but I'd say the ride up in tramcar is definitely out of my Covid 19 comfort range, even with a N95 mask.

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.

Food is exceptional, but so are the prices, for Albuquerque. Wine too is expensive. Dinner for four, with drinks, appetizers but no dessert, with trip up the tram ran us about $475. But no where can u get an exceptional view for a memorable fine dining experience.

My husband and I went to Ten 3 for a special date night and because we wanted to try out this new restaurant. The tram ride is amazing and the view from the restaurant is so captivating. We waited for our table at the bar and the bartender was engaging and made fantastic drinks. For an appetizer we had the crab cake listed under Share. Not enough to share but was tasty. I had the lamb and my husband had the filet- both were cooked beyond what we ordered. The entrees were good but would have been better not overcooked. The panna cotta desert was delicious. The wine was marked up too much and not a great selection. Overall it was a lovely evening and we will return once we save up. For 2 people including tram, $300.

We loved the tram ride & the view...spectacular! And the restaurant itself is handsome & comfortable. However, I was disappointed by the large plate of food that was all cooked together, so it all tasted the same. I guess that is the modern trend, but I suggest that it is more palatable to have different flavors on a plate. Perhaps a tapas option? If we go again, I will opt for a salad & a couple of side dishes, instead of a large entre. I would also have appreciated the option of a place to put our heavy coats.

We had a new team member serving us and he was terrific. It was his first day on the job. Nick or Tom. Super helpful, charming and friendly. We were seated in a lively table right at the window. Our bartender in the casual side made us a knockout Coffee Martini! (*lovely table)

Outstanding food and service. The only complaint is that the restaurant opens at 5. We had a reservation at 5 and did not get seated until after 5:15. At 5:05 they were still lighting candles on the tables, then they sat larger parties first.

We were disappointed in the service and the food. We were celebrating my husband's birthday. We weren't offered or shown a desert menu. Our drinks were neglected as were we. Felt like the server was avoiding us. After the food came,The server never checked on us. When the bill came, we were not asked if we were satisfied with our dinning experience. The food was served in a pile on the plate. Blood all over my mashed potatoes and sauce all over the plate. The meals was a sloppy mess that should have been served out of a bowl. Would not recommend for the price.

Very frustrated at treatment we received when we went to dinner for our anniversary we had a reservation but arrived 40 minutes early so we were told to go sit at the bar the restaurant had at least 12 open tables that we could see. After half an hour of waiting while others who arrived were seated we checked with the hostess who looked annoyed that we asked and said it would be another 10 to 15 minutes. When she called us there were 3 tables set for 2 in that open area we were seated at the only one we could see in the whole place that was half the size of the others about 16" by 36". It was set diagonally with one end jammed up between an outside wall and another table and blocking a fire exit door . The chair at the end was touching an occupied chair behind it but you could not sit down without pulling the table out into the spacious walkway when we started to move the table the snitty hostess yet tehostess pushed it back saying no we are not supposed to move this table! So I asked how were we supposed to get into the seat?? Shoving us into a corner when we had waited for 40 minutes when other tables were open nearby was ridiculous to begin with. Violating covid protocol and blocking a safety exit was unsafe. On top of all that our reservation had been made so we would be able to have a romantic sunset anniversary dinner but she seated us too late.

It was our first time there. The experience getting to the restaurant is definitely one in a lifetime. The price of the ride should be less for those dinning. Our waitress was very pleasant.

Dining here is a real experience. The tram ride up and down gives you a spectacular view of Albuquerque. The food is excellent and the service is exceptional. Prices are high, but the location is truly unique and worth the extra cost.

I was entertaining an out of town guest. We were the first to be seated at the 5:00 PM seating. The dining room was empty since it was the first seating of the evening. The receptionist showed us to a table that was not satisfactory to my guest who asked for another table. She said we would have to wait until all the other reservations were seated and would see if another table was available at that time. If I were with another local I would have walked out or called for the manager. Inexperience? Not sure, or just plain inconsiderate and or stupid?

The cost for dinner for two including tip and one glass of wine each amounted to $200 not including the tram cost of $50. More than what I would pay in just about any excellent restaurant around town. I would suggest to anyone considering attending to wait until COVID has run it's course. Clearly the help needs to learn to put the customer's needs first - especially if you want to charge top dollar for what could have been a wonderful, exceptional dining experience!

Birthday dinner! Requested a window table to view the sunset. We did receive a window table but not with a view of city, nonetheless it was most enjoyable. Our server was just okay, not very personable nor accommodating, but suppose in this time if COvid you get people who are mostly just willing to work not wanting to provide a serviceable experience. The food was lovely; the pork chop was perfect as was the barramundi (catch of the day). We did not have dessert. All in all we had a wonderful evening with beautiful scenery and good food.
