The main dining area was very loud, but we were next to a large group that didn’t help. The patio might be a better option. The pecan chicken was thin and dry. The kale salad was very good. Our server was very pleasant.

+Staff is friendly.
- ordered a wine flight as dinner arrived, never received. Staff said the bar was busy .... Is this a "Wine Makers Bistro" ???....
Ambience was casual, friendly.
Price was good.
We will give it another try...

Our experience was good overall although it was my birthday and we had requested a patio table and we're sat inside. After dinner our party went outside to have a drink and listen to music and sat a table we were told we could by a server just to be told we couldn't sit there. It was disappointing, so we spent our money elsewhere.

Meal was delicious, and well prepared. And while the server started off strong, as the night wore on, and the restaurant got busier- her attention fell off. When she approached the table to ask if anyone wanted dessert, she only asked and waited for a response from my companion. She never asked me and this was one of several times she had done this!

Also, as the night wore on the restaurant got really loUD!!

Worth the food and trip.

Enjoy;

We ate there for Sunday lunch although most of us ordered breakfast. The food was outstanding! The only thing I would change is that they start serving wine at 11 a.m. which the law allows, instead of making us wait until noon. They would make more money that way too. Anyway, I would highly recommend to others and we will be back.

Our waiter took a long time to take our order and we had to ask for the complimentary bread 3 times. Our food also took a long time to come out, much longer than it usually does. We are frequent customers at St. Clair’s and have never had a sub-par experience like we did on this particular occasion.

This was our 2nd visit to St Clair and it was just as good as the first time we went. The food was very tasty and the service was great. We truly enjoyed our visit and we will be returning. Be sure to try the brownie desert, it is awesome.

Everything was fine as far as the food was concerned, but service was not so good.
Entrees arrived two minutes after our soup and salad were delivered. We asked that they be returned and be remade when we were done with our salad and soup. Another two minutes later while still eating appetizers they tried to deliver the entrees again. Again we went it back and waitress promised they would be remade. Finally after finishing our appetizers the food again was presented and by the look and temperature of the food it was not remade but kept warm. Very disappointing.
Also had to ask waitress twice for bread and butter, iced tea, etc, etc.

Excellent locally produced wines (really enjoyed Nativo & the Merlot). Food was similarly excellent.
Waiter seemed a bit distracted. A couple times he had to be reminded by my wife that we'd asked for something. Wasn't as present as I would've expected for a Sunday early-afternoon. That said, he was pleasant & a decent representative for St Clairs Bistro ABQ. We will certainly be back.

Overall my experience at the St. Clair winery was extremely positive. I was celebrating by myself but even on a busy Saturday night I never felt neglected. The waitress was very knowledgeable of both the wine list and the menu and very capable of making recommendations. When I was unsure of which wines to order, she offered to let me taste and decide for myself. The food was also an interesting combination of traditional French cuisine with the addition of some New Mexican flavors. I greatly reccomend it for anyone in Albuquerque, whether they are looking for a great date night or just to experience something different.

Food was excellent, service was above par for Albuquerque, wine was very good. Only downside of this restaurant is the atmosphere- it is wide open area with only waist height walls so when it is busy you can barely have a conversation without raising your voice. Patio seating would probably be nicer but we were in the middle of the floor in the main dining area and it was loud. We will definitely be going back but during a less busy dinner hour or as I said we will request outside seating.

We have eaten here several times in the past and always enjoyed both the menu, wine and service. This visit was rather inattentive and mediocre in all aspects. Maybe we were just not in the mood or maybe there was a lull in the vibrancy but we simply decided not to return.

I had the most amazing experience at St. Clair last night that has my fiance and I still talking about it. Their Valentine's Day Menu was incredible. Fettuccini Pasta with Squid Ink? Wow! Not only was the food amazing but it was out incredibly quickly! Also the Wine Flights our server suggested paired perfectly with our meals. We went home with a bottle of their "Kiva Special Reserve" which was equally amazing. We will definitely be back!

Went for Valentine's day. Hostess and front-end manager could not find our reservation. Then they said "they don't do OpenTable anymore," which bothered me... it was as if it was my fault they couldn't find the reservation. They were disorganized on one of the busiest nights of the year. Overall the food was OK and such. I was expecting a lot better service. With so many options in Old Town, I won't be going back. "Seasons Rotisserie & Grill" is always a winner with better service.

The drinks and appetizers were delicious we had calamari and the lobster bisque’ was good but the lobster pieces were very tiny. When we received our main entree’ it wasn’t that great. The steak was way too underdone and so was the shrimp. It was practically raw. There was nothing special about the steak or shrimp. The bernaise sauce was bland and the shrimp had no exciting flavor to it. The steak which was filet was pretty tough. I think it was an end cut. I didn’t care for it. The service was ok.

Definitely an excellent value close to the old town in Albuquerque. A little hectic getting seated due to the large crowd when we arrived, but otherwise the service was excellent and we did not feel rushed. Besides flights of wine, you were given an opportunity to taste a wine before purchasing a bottle.
