The Corn Maiden Ratings and Reviews
Unfortunately they had a fixed menu for New Year’s Eve. The pumpkin starter was Luke warm and I could only taste the chili. The salad was pitiful, iceberg no dressing the steak was good but tiny and as were the deserts which were mediocre. I love this restaurant but not this night. Very disappointed. Donot go out for dinner on holidays the food is never as good and is mass produced for the crowds.
Another amazing brunch at the Corn Maiden. I recommend this restaurant to all my friends who are looking for a quiet and classy place to dine. We have gone to three Thanksgiving/Christmas brunches and have been super impressed by the quality and variety of food offered. The chef does an amazing job! Our server, Andrew, was friendly and attentive to our needs.
This is a nice restaurant. The foods we had were prepared in ways we had never experienced before so it was like our taste buds went on a culinary adventure. Great place to go if you want to taste food prepared in a different way using spices you may not have been familiar with before.
Definitely one of the best places to eat in Albuquerque. It is a bit of a drive to get there, but it is completely worth it. The ambiance is quiet, dim (but not dark), cozy and romantic. Service was beyond reproach (Arman was fantastic!) and the food has to be tasted to be believed.
The food was fantastic! From the appetizer of fried green Chile strips, the signature Corn Maiden Salad, the beautifully cooked shrimp and scallops and the “cut like butter” duck breast, it was truly a lovely experience. Our thanks to the Chef and all who made our evening unforgettable!! Well done😊
Our group of four people has made The Corn Maiden our traditional Thanksgiving dinner for four years in a row, and enjoyed it for the most part. However, this year our total bill was about $370 for four people, including the 18% gratuity they add. (For four buffets and three $10 cocktails.) We felt it was, overall, a poor value for that kind of money. $90+ per person avg. should have yielded a more special and satisfying experience.
The service was slow and inattentive (ordered coffee and it never arrived, table went uncleared between courses, drink order was slow to arrive); the woman at the turkey carving station was stingy with her portions and resistant to requests for more; the only steak option was rare. Most of the food was good, yes, but not good enough to justify the cost, and I would have liked a steak but it was simply not cooked enough for me. Rare was a take-it-or-leave it deal. The desserts are outstanding, however.
As much as we love the spectacular setting at Tamaya, next year we will look elsewhere for this special meal.
Every dish was perfectly prepared. I ordered lobster pasta dish and the Corn Maiden salad. Loved both. Balanced flavors enhanced the lovely presentation of the salad. Smiles around the table abounded
Seating was awkward, however. Three of us were situated on the bench. As the middle person, I had to climb over spouse to move anywhere. The two tables were not matched in height, so nearly spilled my beverage twice.
Didn't care for size or shape bowl used in lobster pasta. The small, patterned bowl did not adequately set the stage for awesome flavors. Perhaps a wide-rimmed white pasta plate may have been better suited to enhance visuals.
In spite of two concerns, the meal provided an exceptional experience of tastes and flavors in a comfortable atmosphere.
We had a second dinner at corn Maiden.....it was fabulous. Our server, Andrew was terrific and all of the people we had contact with were wonderful. A great evening. An earlier problem with the heat was fixed and we were very comfortable. Corn Maiden is a very special place.
The reservation specifically stated the dinner was to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary. There was no mention from the staff that this was a special event. One member of the party ordered posole as a starter and the hominy was not cooked through, it was hard and crunchy. Another member in the party ordered prawns on a rice pilaf it came served on mashed potatoes and there were some broccoli that was cold in the hot mixed vegetables.
Overall for the price the dinner was quite lack luster. I would not recommend that location for the price.
Some of the best food in New Mexico, and some of the best ambiance anywhere. The expression "you get what you pay for" is status quo in NM, and Corn Maiden proves that if you can afford to spoil yourself, you'll come away spoiled. You can expect free valet parking (with validation), mountain vistas, a wonderful free bread selection, polite and attentive waiters/waitresses and an overall pampering befitting of a 'resort' dining experience. The quality of food rivals any of the "posh" selection you'd find up in Santa Fe (think, Inn of the Anasazi) but you'll get a few more bells and whistles at Corn Maiden. Did I mention: the views are to die for! Get here early so you can walk the grounds.
If you can manage to find anything lacking in the food, the overall dining experience will more than make up for it. Great place to celebrate a special occasion. Not a restaurant for truly little ones, but our 7-year-old boys were fine here. Still, you'll want kidos to be on their best behavior.
We'll definitely be back.
Friendly, attentive staff. Great appetizers. Nice variety on the menu, and with evening dinner specials. Had no problem eating at the Corn Maiden three nights in a row. Had a two year old for dinner one night - she happpily played outside on the lawn with grandma until dinner was ready.
We live near The Corn Maiden and took long-term friends who were visiting. Our dinners were very good, the service was good but long periods in-between check ins, and ambiance was good. Our guests included a spouse who had had knee replacements, so getting to and from the restaurant is an issue. We have had Easter Dinner at the restaurant along with other dinners. The value of the meal is an issue to me as it is overpriced and is very good, not excellent. We weren't embarrassed, however. I wish they would bring the Pathfinder's discount for locals back. This would put the meal more in line with value for those of us not on expense accounts or vacations.
What a spectacular evening at the Corn Maiden! I ordered the Cowboy Ribeye and it was exquisite. It was cooked perfectly, the presentation was exceptional, and the steak was easily the best ribeye I have ever had. It was also a massive portion, which I really appreciate at a high end dining location. My wife ordered the Earth and Water rotisserie which was also incredible. The duck was cooked to perfection and everything else really complimented each part of the plate. The au gratin potatoes are mind-blowing as well; if your entree does not come with them be sure to order them on the side, I promise you will not be disappointed.
The atmosphere was nice and quiet on our visit for a Friday evening. There were a few tables of business folks from what looked like a conference, and a few other couples as well. It was very quiet and intimate, which my wife and I really enjoyed. The service was excellent and extremely friendly, and not at all uptight or stiff.
We will definitely be going back, and I very much look forward to that opportunity!
Really had a great time. The food was a bit pricey but worth it. The service staff was timely and attentive. The views were great. We felt very comfortable and welcome. Definitely would recommend this restaurant to anyone. We will be returning in the near future.
Food and atmosphere was good. Very disappointed that the food was NOT SPICY AT ALL! We are locals, and brought guests from Scottsdale who were hoping for some spicy NM food. The green chili in the potatoes, chili strips and jalepeno corn bread were virtually undetectable. Would be nice to have options for those who appreciate authentic food.
