Excellent food in a charming setting. The new ahi tuna appetizer and the portobello sandwich were excellent, as was the Catalina salad. Servings were generous as were the wine pours. A lovely afternoon!

The food was AMAZING!! My wife said this was the best steak she’s ever had, and we have been to many steak houses across the country. The noise level is high as it’s a very small establishment, but the food makes up for the noise.

About the restaurant
Our mission is to open a few restaurants that take care of our guests in every way-treating them like guests in our home, making sure that they feel embraced by the joy with which we extend our hospitality, and making sure that they become entranced by our restaurant. We understand the value of 'regulars' returning weekly and in many cases more frequently. We hope that all of our guests will feel that they belong to a private club, to which we welcome them again and again. M'tucci's Moderno located in Rio Rancho is a sister of our first restaurant, M'tucci's Italian, which is located at Coors and Montano on Albuquerque's West Side. At Moderno, we continue to offer a moderately priced, Italian menu built on a foundation of both traditional and contemporary recipes. The menu, together with the bar (full liquor license) menu, is offered in a contemporary building with black steel elements, high ceilings, and a big garage door that opens to the Sandia Mountains. Inside the steel, we have inserted a more traditional looking wood clad restaurant featuring traditional lighting and Edison bulbs, as well as other playful elements. Our congenial bar and mezzanine offer alternative spaces within which to enjoy M'tucci's food and beverage. Moderno's bar program features our unique shrubs as well as a new collection of original cocktails to complement our food and wine. Our mezzanine can also be reserved for private groups. M'tucci's Moderno is located just west of Presbyterian's Rust Medical Center. At the end of 2016, Jeff Spiegel, Katie Gardner, and John Haas, founders of M'tucci's Restaurants, welcomed five new partners to their ownership team: Austin Leard, Sherri Rivenburgh, Cory Gray, Shawn Cronin and Chris O'Sickey. This ensures that M'tucci's Restaurants are here for the long haul.

About the restaurant
Vernon's Speakeasy is the only speakeasy restaurant in New Mexico! We feature exquisite steaks and seafood and American cuisine in a superb dining atmosphere. The culmination of live music, great food and top notch service, as well as the need for "the Password", create an atmosphere and dining experience that surely proves to be one of a kind.

About the restaurant
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. In the warmer months, enjoy our live music series, as well! **Please note, the music series is temporarily postponed due to pandemic restrictions

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!

First time to Savoy in quite awhile and it didn’t disappoint. The food, service and ambiance were great! Enjoyed the house special “Parmesan Chicken Breast”, delicious and plentiful, cooked perfectly. Wanted to highlight the excellent service we received but the receipt only says “H.C.” Hope this can track back to the gal who was fun and informative all evening.

Food and service were excellent. Mid-week dining had small number of customers, so impossible to know how noisy it might be on weekends. Zinc is now on our favorite restaurants list.

Santa Ana Pueblo
About the restaurant
Prairie Star Restaurant and Wine Bar at Santa Ana Golf Club has offered an unforgettable dining experience since 1986. Housed in a renovated 100 year-old adobe ranch house, the warmth and intimacy of Prairie Star is intoxicating. You may absorb the NM Territorial atmosphere of handmade adobe walls, kiva fireplaces and full viga and latilla ceilings while enjoying awe-inspiring and sweeping views of the golf course and the Sandia Mountains.

Our culinary team masterfully creates stunning Contemporary New American cuisine with global influences and Executive Chef Myles Lucero changes our menu seasonally to reflect the time and freshest ingredients at hand. Each dish is carefully crafted from the finest ingredients, locally sourced when possible, and organic, sustainable and fair trade items preferred.

Prairie Star serves prix fixe menus on major holidays, and you can find details at prairiestarrestaurant.com. We are closed Christmas Day and New Years Day.

We came for our anniversary celebration. The outside seating was excellent with comfortable seats and a great view. The service provided by Avery was outstanding. The food was good, if uneven. We had the three course dinner with wine special for $79, which was an outstanding value. My wife's pork dinner was delicious, although my halibut dinner was only average. The tiramasu for dessert was outstanding.
