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!
Food was very good, pleasant, cozy atmosphere with great friendly staff.
I definitely recommend for dinner and great breakfast with wonderful pecan bacon.
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.
Surprisingly good food and a great value. My husband had the pecan crusted trout, which was excellent and only $15. I opted for a Spinach salad. I find their wines to be on the sweet side but enjoyed my tasting. We had a play to get to and the service was excellent.
The food is just absolutely delicious. Nice flair that it all is made with a local wine that is paired perfectly with it. The service is top notch....especially Sydney!!! She was fantastic!!!!!
Amzing place and really enjoyed the extensive wine selection
This was our second visit. We received a GC for our anniversary. I ordered the Steak Bernaise medium well. One piece was well done and the other rare which I gave half to my husband as it was too rare for me. It was even too rare for him. Chef was way off on this one. The flavor of our meals were very good and our waiter was too. I did mention it was our anniversary, a complimentary dessert would have been awesome! I like the wine tasting flights. It's a nice way to sample different wines. Prices are reasonable.
Both times we were seated by the bar where there are way too many TV's. If they're going to be on in the dining room, consider what is on them. One had the history of the winery which was great, the other had a violent cop show. Not conducive to an enjoyable dinner out. We'll be back to try the brunch as we still have some left on our GC but we'll ask to sit away from the bar area.
St. Claire's is a fantastic restaurant. The food and service were what you might expect in a more expensive restaurant. We greatly enjoyed our pecan encrusted trout and the wine was delicious, all very reasonably priced. Try the wine ice cream and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. We loved it so much we went back a second time before heading to the airport.
Went for date night. Great experience and food was great. Best steak I tried so far. Is expensive but was worth it.
This restaurant is our favorite and is worth the drive. I highly recommend it to everyone.
My friend's first time, he's a cattleman and thought the rib eye was delicious. I had the pecan crusted trout and i loved it. Service was excellent; the server was on point but not overbearing.
Great dinner and service! My wife and I had our first date at St. Claire so it's a special place. We'll be back!
My wife and I tried St. Clare for the first time on Saturday the 13th. We were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation time. The table was in the middle of the dining area and a cold breeze came in every time the door opened. The staff was friendly and service was good. The waitress did forget to bring a cup of coffee that was ordered when we placed our dessert order. I had a chicken, green chili pasta that was flat on flavor. I will give it another try, perhaps for Sunday brunch.
Excellent meal, delightful atmosphere, and stellar service!!!
Great food. Great Service. Great Wine. Great atmosphere. Great place!
Some of the seating has poor lighting, otherwise very nice.
First time going to this place. Been wanting to go for a while and decided on making it our date night dinner place. Great atmosphere, good food and wine. The service was a bit slow. Our server did pay attention to the table next to us a bit more so that was a little disappointing. I would give it another try and see if service is better.
This was my second visit to the restaurant in the last 9 months passing through on travel and it didn't disappoint! Love the variety of wines and menu options. I enjoyed a red flight and shared a small plate of brussel sprouts with my guest. Delicious!! We both had difficulty picking an entree as the choices all sounded so good! I enjoyed the chicken and pasta which was nicely spiced and a very generous portion size (leftovers of course) ! My guest enjoyed the pecan crusted chicken with fig sauce. We were both delighted with our selections! Our server was terrific and very helpful. We bought a couple of bottles of wine to take on our trip! Overall another great visit and hope to make it again in a few months! Highly recommend!
We were disappointed as soon as we walked in... way too bright, lots of screaming kids, tv screens and a plastized menu with pictures. Basically a glorified Denny’s. It sounded good from the website, but we realized we’d made a mistake... not the “winery/bistro” we were expecting. We were offered a new harvest sweet blush wine, which seems like an odd choice in mid-winter. We didn’t stay, so I have no idea if the food was good or not. Oh well.
We've eaten at St. Clair's in the past and really enjoyed the experience. Granted, it was years ago. This occasion was my wife's birthday and we invited a couple to join us for dinner. The food was just average. My ribeye was overcooked, the squash was mushy. The filet medallions were so/so and the béarnaise was somewhat tasteless. The only food that was very good was the fish & chips. Wine was superb, our server was very good (Josh), and the wine ice cream was interesting. All in all, it'll probably be some time before we try St. Julian's Winery & Bistro again.
