About the restaurant

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. For those looking for an exciting show, the exhibition bar offers seats right along the open kitchen. 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. Visit www.zincabq.com for menus, pictures, and upcoming events!

The Burgundy in the Basement dinner was exceptional, from the knowledge of the French burgundy expert to the Zinc sommelier. The courses were well paired with the wines .

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 went for the wine and dine. The food was fantastic! Our surface was outstanding!! Our server whose name I think is Britannia was very very attentive to our needs. I have to be gluten-free due to celiac. They always are accommodating. If I could give them 10 stars I would!

About the restaurant
Welcome to America’s most breathtaking dining experience!

TEN 3 is perched atop the area’s distinct, burgeoning culinary landscape. Our menu features international, Mediterranean, New Mexican, and American dishes, all thoughtfully and responsibly prepared from scratch, emphasizing the unique flavors of the region, and locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. We strive for straightforward beauty in every dish with the hopes that each bite will create moments of communal joy you’ll want to return to time and time again.

Although the alpine dining experience can present amazing opportunities to create lasting memories, weather can occasionally present unexpected challenges related to our remote tram access - please be patient with the rare and unavoidable delays or cancellations that may result due to high winds or adverse weather conditions.

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
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!

Everything was good, except there were a lot of flies in the restaurant which made it difficult to enjoy the mail meal.
