Great food, great service. I will be back and hopefully soon!!
We dined here for Easter brunch and the overall experience was wonderful. Food was delicious and presented well. The only area that was not up to standards was the service. We were greeted by our server after about 10 minutes and basically the rest of the meal we got everything from the server assistant. I would have preferred to have tipped the assistant as he took care of us better than our server. Our server literally just got our drink order and brought out the check. He did come back to make sure he added the gratuity to the check and that was about it.
My wife and i went to this restaurant for easter brunch. we do not do a lot of brunches. for some reason we really wanted to brunch easter day. we could not get into bien shur at sandia. we were told about the corn maiden. i read good reviews so we decided to book it.
the price was high. the bien shur and the sheraton were cheaper.
the food was limited. the shrimp and the prime rib were good. the omlet station was good. the noodle station was average. the rolls were hockey pucks. overall, the deserts were average. the restaurant could have gotten better quality bread, muffins, rolls, vegetables, deserts, and other premade items from sam's or costco.
the service was spotty. the waitress was good but rest of the service was average. the staff did not keep an eye on dirty plates or empty coffee cups.
there is no outdoor dining patio.
the restaurant was not laid out for a brunch and it showed. the hot food was in the cooking area. very tight.
turns out the hotel had the exact same buffet at its cheaper restaurant, the santa ana cafe. the cafe has a terrific patio with a terrific quiet view. the patio was crowded.
Very ood Easter brunch. Food wel prepared, staff friendly and professional. Will recommend.
Great atmosphere, and a wonderful Easter buffet spread. For special occasions, cannot be beat here or anywhere.
Fine dining, traditional and eclectic menu items. Small but excellent wine list. Quiet ambience. Great food experience!
The staff was exceptionally accommodating, the food was very good and the atmosphere was the best. The view was "to die for." This was the best view of the Sandia's and the Bosque we have ever seen .................................and we've lived here for over 50 years. Everyone should give this restaurant a visit, it will be well worth the drive.
3rd time at this restaurant . Well worth the cost
We love The Corn Maiden. Always our go to when visiting Albuquerque.
First time and LOVED it. Ambience was perfect our view was even better! service was awesome and hats off to the chefs. Couldn’t have asked for a better date tonight. We would love to go back again soon.
Went here as part of NM Restaurant week. Was not disappointed.
We ate there for Restaurant week and the food was excellent and the service was great will definitely be going back
Our first time here and we were impressed. The place was not overly busy, the ambiance was laid back and quiet. Our server was very prompt with service and attentive to our needs. Our food came quickly and was served hot. Everything was delicious.
From start to finish our meal was outstanding! Shared the ribeye, we both had the wedge salads and we ordered the Hess cabernet $60 it was so smooth and ended with green chili apple pie with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream .....ahhh heaven
We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. My husband accidentally broke a glass and the waitress calmly and professionally said we could move to another table. The food arrived in a reasonable amount of time, with the rolls, then the appetizers timed perfectly in between.
Very busy. Awful service.
This Hyatt property is truly special! From the architecture and cultural furnishings to the service, everything is top notch! The Corn Maiden is no exception. We enjoyed a lovely, delicious meal! We only wished we had longer to enjoy the rest of the property!
I've had the pleasure to dine at The Corn Maiden several times now and try various dishes from their menu, and I have yet to be even remotely disappointed with any aspect of the experience. The food is absolutely fantastic; the atmosphere is relaxed while maintaining a subtle air of sophistication; the customer service is practically flawless.
It is definitely one of the most expensive restaurants I've been to in the Albuquerque area, and it's a bit of a drive to get there from Albuquerque (the restaurant is located a short way north of Bernalillo, just off of NM highway 528). But the drive and the bill at the end of the meal are both easily worth it! I will enthusiastically recommend this to anyone looking for a more special dining experience than you can usually find in Albuquerque and the surrounding area.
After years of relying on The Corn Maiden for the best table service in Albuquerque, I'm going to have to reconsider. I think my server was borrowed from the cafe, which was closed Friday night, as she wasn't completely familiar with the menu and had to ask about multiple items I was interested in. The green chile posole was incredibly bland, perhaps due to being "tourist friendly", no NM spiciness whatsoever, quite disappointing. One detail remaining consistent is how stingy they are with their breads. You are offered a tiny scone or corn bread muffin, both of which are delicious, but, why not come back around to offer more or offer more the first time. The restaurant wasn't busy at all and they certainly could have afforded to share more of their delicious bakery treats. We had the filet and the rotisserie option with beef, chicken and pork. While the filet was delivered with a steak knife in advance, the other was not and needed something sharper than the butter knife, as the beef and pork weren't tender enough, requiring a bit of a sawing motion to get through the item. The honey Butterfinger ice cream and chocolate torte were the highlight of the meal, both incredible endings to a mediocre meal experience, quite a departure from what we have enjoyed on previous anniversaries, birthdays and Mother's/Father's Day excursions to The Corn Maiden. The server's poor attentiveness was only highlighted by the other server who constantly checked on her tables and we've actually enjoyed her serve us on previous visits. I hope this was only one off night and not the usual experience to expect on future decisions to give the restaurant another try.
We love the Tamaya Resort and have dined on the patio dozens of times. We finally tried the Corn Maiden, and it was a major disappointment. For a high end restaurant, the service was some of the worst I've ever had. Our total dining experience lasted over 3 hours. Not our fault or by choice, but because the server was sooooo inattentive. Even getting the check picked up took forever, and I finally had to take it to someone in the kitchen so we could get out of there.
The atmosphere is very nice just like the rest of the resort, but honestly the food was quite average at best. Out of 5 meals, we had to send 2 of them back for corrections. We're not that picky, but c'mon at $50 a plate the food should be prepared as requested.
We're definitely a one-and-done customer.
Food was great! It took a while to get our entrees but worth the wait. Server was great as well
Everything was top-drawer. A plus was a knowledgeable, friendly waiter that engaged us with a discussion of today's changing world of economics. We will continue to go to the Corn Maiden for special occasions.
Wonderful dining experience. Exceptional ambiance, food and service.
Service was slow. Food was warm. We have been to the corn maiden at least 12 times. The quality has significantly dropped. For us, we will look for other dining experiences
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.
Server was not good at all. Have eaten at corn maiden many times. Chef must be me as food took 1.5 hours to get to table. Forgot lobster on the lobster pasta, steak over done.
Outstanding. Worthy of one or two Michelin stars.
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 our third year to eat Christmas dinner here. It’s relaxing and there are numerous selections. Something for everyone.
beautiful ambience, presentation was amazing on Christmas Day. Never had a buffet like this!!!! WOW again and again
We like the restaurant for dinner but were disappointed with the food for the. Christmas brunch. Missed omelette station/pasta station.
First seating at Christmas Brunch. Excellent and broad selection of every step from appetizers to carving section for turkey, beef or ham plus side dishes. Desserts were awesome.
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.
My husband and I have been going to Corn Maiden for my birthdays every year. It's a perfect place to enjoy a great meal and the environment is cozy and quiet!
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 server was very nice and helpful but the food was mediocre for the price. There are other restaurants that have better food for the price.
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.
Fantastic! Exceptional for the area. :)
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.
