Service friendly but extremely unschooled; server disappeared for extremely lengthy stretches while guest was waiting for wine, coffee, etc. "Artisan" charcuterie board offered supermarket cheeses, served right out of the fridge. This is in a restaurant with entrees perilously near the $50 mark. It's the kind of place that perpetuates the stereotype of the hotel restaurant.
We've been going to this restaurant for years. It remain our favorite place for special occasions. In this case, our anniversary. Love the ambiance and the western motif. Our steaks were excellent quality and perfectly cooked. We'll keep coming back.
Elegant dining area although slightly out dated. Service was excellent and both our meals was very good. Highly recommend especially for romantic date.
The bison tenderloin should not be missed. The food and service were excellent.
We had a great table and wonderful service. It was a memorable evening
Disappointing. Used to be so much better. Slow service -steaks not cooked as we had requested. Didn’t feel like fine dining except for the prices! Won’t go again
This place has changed since we were there last. We were used to the old Rancher's Club, which had a maitre d, head waiter, the plates had the metal covers on them and were presented, a sommelier, bananas foster, etc. All of that is gone which was very disappointing. However, the food is still excellent but the service was much slower than before. One of the reasons we went there was for the ambiance and the feeling of being special. Now it's just a really good pricey steak place.
I've reviewed the restaurant before. It is very consistent. The food is very good, the prices are too high, the service is great and the atmosphere is great. Main problem is that if you have an appetizer, drinks, dinner, dessert and coffee, two people are going to walk out with a bill close to $175. As long as you have money and don't mind spending it on dinner, then the meal is always enjoyable.
We both order bison different preparations. The Bacon kinda overwhelmed my medallions, but they were Juicy, spiced well, and properly complemented. Next time I will try the antelope.
Our family was celebrating our Daughter's Graduation and we wanted an intimate, up scaled experience. The Rancher's Club made for a wonderful ending to an extraordinary day. Great food, great service, great evening.
Birthday diner with my son. Waiter was very attentive, food was excellent, nice drinks.
We had fun atmosphere was great food was good. I had the salmon stuffed with jumbo lump crab meat and roasted vegetables. Amazingly good. My husband and one of our friends had the cowboy cut ribeye they said it was alright but wouldn’t get it again because it had to much gristle in it but had good flavor, to expensive to not have the meat. One of tour other friends had the filet mignon and she said it was very tasty
Nice ambiance, varied menu, great service. The food was well prepared in all ways except it was completely over salted .(and I love salt). Otherwise, this review would have been very positive.
For being a very quiet evening, not many patrons, the waiter was not as attentive as what we have experienced in the past. He may have been new. The food was delicious as usual as were the cocktails.
I have heard of Ranchers Club for years. Reservation process was well managed. Food was excellent. Service was also excellent. I was disappointed with the dining room. Carpet was warn through on stairs, pictures all looked faded, upholstery was very dated with large floral print. If Ranchers Club is suppose to stand out as worth the high money it would be worth the investment to do some serious remodeling.
Unfortunately it is not as good as Rancher's used to be. We were there for Mother's Day. They seemed short staffed as we did not receive the service expected. The filet was good. The baked potato seemed old as if it was made in the morning and kept warm. It is not that difficult to make a decent baked potato. We had dessert, which was pretty good. The worst part was lukewarm coffee. It was refilled with room temperature coffee, which I could not drink. Our server took so long to check on us, nothing worth bringing to her attention.
It did not seem busy and I can see why. I don't think we'll be back.
My mother loved the experience and the food!
With a slow start, the Rancher's Club got better and better with great salads and well prepared main courses. Our waiter Josh took charge and did his very best to make the dining
experience memorable. Will definitely return and try some of the other traditonal menu offerings.
We used to come here often...food was still great. Wait staff tried hard but have not been well trained for a restaurant at this level. They were not very attentive, and generally acted as though this were just a litltle bit higher than an "Outback" level of steakhouse. Not thier fault. Rancher's Club used to be an elegant restaurant....not anymore. Very casually dressed diners...shorts...t shirts...etc.I felt out of place with a tie and coat. The food was great...but the whole expereince was not...certainly not worth almost $200 for a couple. This is not the same Ranchers Club we used to know and love. I don't plan on coming back unless something changes.
We celebrated a birthday with a great meal. As usual, the food was prepared perfectly and the service was friendly. We always have such a nice time here.
I wanted to take my wife to a very special dinner for her birthday. We arrived on time and after walking through the bar we waited five minutes as no hostess was at her station. Finally a waiter saw a line and fetched her.
This particular Thursday evening was Graduation Parties and they were extremely busy.
Our waiter finally gave us attention to receive waters and I was served a nice glass of Pinor Noir from Carmel CA. My wife ordered Oystes Rockefeller which was incredible. We enjoyed not being in a hurry and ordered half hour later. I had to ask the waiter for bread. Really! Fine dining and one must ask?
The Bison wrapped in bacon was excellent. Unfortunately the birthday's lady's Prime Rib was very fatty and not great at all.
We sent it back and the waiter said they all would be like this. So I shared the Bison. Our waiter did bring her Carmel Bread Pudding which was the best I have ever had anywhere.
Maybe just the wrong night but if I'm dropping $100 to $200 to go all out I do expect a more enjoyable experience. Management at no time came by to see how dinner was at any tables. I won't recommend risking a special occasion based on my experience. Sorry!
It's pricey but worth the ambiance, service, and overall experience. A good spot for special occasions.
The food and service was outstanding! The steaks were amazing.
Maybe the best steak I have ever had. Very good service to go along with some very fine food.
Elegant atmosphere, but quite expensive for Albuquerque. Excellent service. Nice quiet room, wasn't very crowded. Full menu, unless your vegan, then this is not somewhere you want to go. Prime rib was tasty but tough. Filet tender with spicy but quite salty rub. Fresh vegetables cooked properly, still firm, not overcooked mush as happens too often elsewhere.
We took our youngest son (he is in residency at UNM) and his girlfriend whom is vegan/vegetarian. They made her a special plate for her using items off various entrees on the menu (though it did seem a little on the expensive side). Filet and ribey Steak cooked according to expectations, and the best part of our 4 meals. My smoked duck was disappointing, much more pasta, and very little duck. Calimari appetiser was good and a nice serving size for the four of us.
This was another spectacular wine dinner. The featured wines were paired with 7 courses this time by Chef with his usual fenomenal flair. Although I thought the scallop course was not my favorite, my partner loved it. The Moroccan seasoned lamb was fantastic and ending the meal with a cheese course was perfect for me. I had been looking forward to this dinner since I received the email announcement with the menu a couple of weeks ago and I certainly was not disappointed. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
The two previous times we had been there everything was amazing but this last time is was bad. They sat us between two large loud parties even though when I made the reservation I told them we were celebrating our anniversary. We ended up asking to be moved to a different table which didn't matter because they were still super loud. Our server took over 20 minutes to come take our order. In the past, the captain would literally stand and wait till he saw you put your menus down and come right over. Our server was not very knowledgeable about the food or how to pair it. My smoked duck fettuccine was swimming in sauce to hide the fact there wasn't very much duck in it and it was very salty so I sent it back. I got a filet miniogn and it was excellent but they gave me about a pound of asparagus, half way cooked and no seasoning on then with the sauce on the side. The broccoli looked old and over cooked. My husband bison medallions were good but they just piled food on top of them so he didn't like that. I think maybe if we had gone for the first time we may have enjoyed it more but our expectations were very high and the service just did not measure up. You can go to red lobster and get the same service, same ambiance, better food and pay half the price.
It was overall AMAZING!!!!!!
Jacob was excellent
Had beef filet and prime rib with beet salad, chicken chili soup and desert. Filets were under cooked and surprisingly tough, not like the “old” Ranchers Club we used to know. Service was excellent although we arrived at 5:30 so only 3 tables occupied for much of our stay. Can’t say we will be back. We’ll probably go to Ruth’ s Chris from now on for our special occasions.
The restaurant and dinner was fantastic. Iris, our server was amazing and very attentive.
Place was empty on a Tuesday nite around 8:30. Ordered the meat and cheese plate and the waiter had no idea what was on the platter. Had the Antelope Chop and ordered it medium and it came out rare. Sent it back and they basically just warmed it up, but not cooked much further. Thought it was a a little tough as well. Wanted another glass of wine but the waiter disappeared in between serving each course. There was literally no one else working the dining room. I had to go into back area to get service.
Open Table advertised the Ranchers Club as having an Easter brunch buffet. They did not have a buffet and we didn't want to try and search for another buffet location at the last minute, so we did have lunch at the Ranchers Club. Our meal was enjoyable but we are disappointed that your advertisement was incorrect.
Sourdough bread was amazing!! Ordered filet mignon cooked medium. Free beef tenderloin appetizer was a nice unexpected touch. Filet came out almost rare. Had to send it back twice to finally get it to medium. It was very flavorful. Waitress offered free dessert because of issues with undercooked filet. Had the dulce de leche ice cream. Very tasty. Left very full. Nice rancher ambiance.
We were a little concerned pulling up but the minute you step in the door you know it is special. Service and food was excellent. There were 9 of us and all agreed it was great.
This is our go-to place when we have an event at the Crowne Plaza. I remember the glory days of the Ranchers Club when Albuquerque was a much smaller town, and the hotel was the Albuquerque Hilton. The Ranchers Club has retained much of its original ambiance, but could use a facelift. Still, the food and service never disappoint, and we enjoy the exceptional wine selection and delicious meals offered. Nice for an anniversary or special dinner with friends.
Excellent service and food. A little pricey though
Josh was our server and did a good job and noticed immediately in his passing that my niece's fillet was raw as she had cut into it. He responded appropriately and brought it back to the kitchen. I was surprised how quick it came back out, only to find that the meat was clearly still raw (not even rare). It was ordered as medium rare. My niece who was visiting from Chicago was embarrassed to say anything and ate around the parts of the fillet that weren't raw.
I had paused eating my dinner, prime rib - medium, while awaiting the return of my niece's meal. Of course it went cold waiting, and as I progressed into the meat, I found it to be very rare and a little tough.
This is my third time eating at the Ranchers Club, first time the kitchen failed.
It was a very expensive disappointment and embarrassing too.
Excellent wine dinner.\tasting. Arrived a little early for wine tasting, but they di not use the occasion
