I know season 52 is a chain restaurant. But I love it! The service is amazing. And the food is fantastic. There is nothing I can complain about. For Albuquerque, this is really a nice space!

Zinc is a lively three level bistro in Historic Nob Hill. Featuring an open, urban ambiance, Zinc offers casual fine dining on the main level and the loft mezzanine.

The menu focuses on high quality - yet affordable - American bistro fare and utilizes seasonal ingredients, many of which are sourced from local farmers. The Cellar Bar offers the same extensive wine list and premium cocktails as the upstairs, but in a more intimate lounge atmosphere with a lighter menu.

Our dinner was fabulous. For my birthday there was a birthday card on the table that was signed by the wait staff, and it kept getting better from there. The staff is wonderfully competent and professional. Food came quickly and our Fillets melted in our mouths. I could write paragraphs about the very special experience...and it is here in Albuquerque!

About the restaurant
Upscale Patio Bar and Restaurant Overlooking Old Town Albuquerque

Seasons Grill in the heart of the Sawmill District in Old Town is a local favorite and a visitor's destination! The concept is driven by one core idea: take the best fresh and seasonal ingredients and prepare them in a casually elegant environment. The open kitchen's wood-burning rotisserie & grill creates an opportunity for signature dishes such as Kobe Ribeye Filet, Grilled Jumbo Sea Scallops and a daily fresh fish to be more than a meal, but an experience.

We have a great Happy Hour Wednesday thru Friday on the Rooftop, including food and drink specials. Dine on the second story balcony or inside with open breezes!

Seasons has an extensive award-winning wine list, a full bar and several private dining options for up to 100 people. For more information please visit us at seasonsabq.com or call 505-766-5100

Seasons was recommended by a local friend and so glad it was. Our meal couldn’t have been better and the service was excellent. Several of our party are pescatarian so I always look at menus before booking. The menu had many interesting options for the non-meat eaters. The cocktail choices were also intriguing- an added plus. The waiter was so professional and his recommendations appreciated. Food and drinks were truly exceptional. We will return!

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.

I love El Pinto and their padio, unfortunately this last time food came out just warm. The server acted like plates were hot, but they we just warm. Cheese was melted so I assume it just sat for a while before it was served. This is not the first time this has happened. I love the place and I took out of town guests who agreed the food was just 8 out of 10, their plates were just warm as well. Prices are a bit high. Margarita for $16? Tequila Herradura is $40 for a whole bottle at the store and you can make about 10 Margaritas with that with some tri sec and fresh squeezed lime. The best deal is almost expired Salsa jars for $2 each. Get those.

About the restaurant
Vinaigrette is a chic and green bistro that raises the "salad bar" with bold and delicious entrée salads. Featuring innovative flavor combinations and the option to add savory protein accompaniments like diver scallops, lemon-herb chicken or grilled hanger steak, these tantalizingly hearty yet healthy creations allow for guiltless and delicious eating at the same time. The restaurant strives to source local and organic ingredients. As one local publication put it "Eating well never tasted so good."
