We have been to Vernon's in the past and this experience was not anywhere close to what we have experienced in the past. Which was excellent. It was as though they were tired after a very busy evening. They had too many parties going on and even though we had a reservation, we had to wait to be seated and there was not really a comfortable place to wait. We ended up standing in the bar. We did not plan order drinks before being seated.
awesome fun atmosphere, good serving sizes with small plates and affordable, also great plates that are mores expensive but worth the price
Great atmosphere and food. I wish I had gotten the VIP tour that was talked About. All in all a great experience
Did not really meet our expectations. We sent our comments directly to Vernon's.
I had the steak and lobster tail that was not on the menu but recommended by the waiter. The lobster tail was probably best I have ever had and I have had lobster in many parts of the country. The steak was cooked to perfection which is a rarity in New Mexico in my experience. The experience was great and I am certainly recommending this to my friends. It is on the pricey side but well worth it for the quality of food, service and atmosphere.
Traveling on business and found this on the list of highly rated steakhouses. The speakeasy theme makes this place special and fun. From the minute you knock on the door to get in you realize this is going to be an experience. The service is wonderful and very attentive. Then when the food arrives you realize this isn't just a theme joint, but a top rated steakhouse. Made a routine business dinner into a memorable experience. I can't wait to bring others to this place.
Went for our Ann and it was nice. Food was delicious and service great.. we will definitely return for our next special occasion!
Great atmosphere and excellent service. The food was amazing.
We just love Vernon's from the moment we knock on the door, through the secret passage, getting the lowdown to the ambiance & atmosphere of the place. The food is outstanding & the presentation is beautiful. The service is the every step of the way making sure your every need is met. Love it.
Our dining experience was amazing from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. The service was amazing and the food was incredible. Definitely a must when coming to Albuquerque!
It was a quiet evening. I expected it to be more busy for Thanksgiving Eve. Bummed we forgot to use our 20
Percent off coupon.
First visit. Kitschy gangster theme but had fun with it. Had the Dry aged Rib Eye Steak. It had an unpleasant odor and taste. Ordinarily I would have sent it back and left however this was a birthday dinner and my wife was enjoying herself. She had the Hatch Red Chile Pork Tenderloin which she enjoyed very much. The service was excellent (humorous and accommodating). The wine (Hess Cabernet Sauvignon) was great with the few bites of Rib eye that didn't offend. Would recommend trying the Los Ranchos Star Rib Eye instead.
The food was excellent, ambiance unique, and the service was very good. But not quite worth the prices.
And the instructions for finding the place were not very helpful.
Always a favorite to celebrate a special occasion. Pricey but worth the experience. Food is amazing and service is always on point.
Vernon's is the place to go for those special occasions. The husband & I went there last night for our 30th anniversary.
The mood for the night was set as soon as we arrived. We knocked on the door and gave the password, only to be asked, "Are you a cop?" LOL... We walked in the door to be greeted by a Chicago bouncer & his Louisville Slugger, who promptly went over the rules of the speakeasy. Since we were early, we sat at the bar and ordered a couple of drinks. They have an extensive beer, wine, whiskey & cocktail menu. As we sat & reminaced, music was coaxed from the ivory keys of a baby grand piano. The pianist played a good selection of tunes: Gershwin, Berlin & the like. "You must remember this... as time goes by..."
After being seated, water glasses were filled & service was prompt. Questions were answered and food ordered. We opted to share the crab cake starter. Being displaced Marylanders, we are quite fussy about crab cakes but these were very, very good. They were better than my own! The husband said they were the best he's ever eaten. For the main courses, he ordered the prime rib & I had the special, cioppino. Both dishes were cooked to perfection. He said he's had better prime rib, but was satisfied with it. For me, the cioppino was as good as that at Harris Ranch restaurant in Coalinga, CA. It was outstanding!
As a finishing touch & a surprise for us, Vernon's remembered we indicated on the reservation that it was our anniversary. Our server wished us a happy anniversary and brought out a dessert for us to share - ON THE HOUSE!!! It was delicious! Apples sauteed in calvados & served warm over vanilla ice cream in a crispy, pastry bowl. It was perfect with our after dinner coffees.
Our server took a photo of us together and made everything a very special night. They even followed up the next day to see if we enjoyed ourselves. I made another reservation there for Christmas eve. Can't wait!
Vernon's seem to capture all the elements one would expect at a 'speakeasy'! From the entrance, to the staff, the atmosphere, the soft live piano music, and their amazing food and drinks...nothing seemed to be overlooked at Vernon's! We went for my girlfriend's birthday, and the staff surprised her with a free dessert...and took the time and effort to remember her name from the reservation when presenting her dessert!!!
We drove 6.5 hours to go to Albuquerque, from Southeast Arizona, just so I could take my girlfriend there for her birthday. I have to say, it was truly a GREAT experience, and I highly recommend Vernon's to anyone seeking a special place for a special occasion!
Great place for that special occasion! Food, presentation, and service are outstanding. A little pricey, but you get that memorable moment with a wonderful atmosphere. Live music on a baby grand starts at 7pm. Would go back again and that is saying something for me.
This was my second visit to Vernon’s and it was as disappointing as the first. I’m a serious steak guy who doesn’t mind paying premium prices for a good steak. I’m a fan of Mastros, Morton’s and Ruth’s Chris so thought I’d give this place a try based on the reviews.
Both times the meats were terrible. First trip a N.Y. Strip, this trip the Prime Rib. Both times the meat was tough and grizzly.
The ambiance, the whole speakeasy vibe were great. The appetizers and drinks were great. But I go to a place like this for the steak.
I’ll give this place one more try but I’m not holding my breath.
Treated my boyfriend to a birthday dinner at Vernon’s and he absolutely loved it! I also loved it as well, it was both our first time dining here and was a huge hit! The food was amazing and the atmosphere was perfect as well as romantic especially with the pianist playing in the dining area. We will definitely be dining here again. Thank you staff at Vernon’s for making my boyfriends birthday dinner a success!
I went with my man for a romantic date and we were very pleased. The decor and lighting are dark and soothing, the server was knowledgable but not too hovery, and the food was wonderful from start to finish. You will definitely have a hefty bill but it is well worth the money.
Filet was perfect! Service was great! Speakeasy atmosphere is always fun!
Excellent dinner! Aged ribeye and green chile risotto were amazing!
You won't be disappointed! Fantastic service and great food!
Superb meals. The steak, scallops and veggies were all cooked to perfection. The Caesar salad needs a little work, a little more citrus and less cheese for my taste. It was a great dining experience that my partner and I enjoyed very much.
As always, the food was great and service excellent.
Great ambiance, a nice find!! We will definitely recommend to friends and out-of-town guests. On the pricey side, but worth it!
Never felt rushed. Everything to the table at the right time. Meat cooked to perfection. Brie appetizer excellent. Fun, speakeasy atmosphere.
Overall it was an excellent experience. As our first time there we got a little confused about the door but that added to the experience in my opinion. Food was outstanding, definitely one of the best steaks I’ve ever had (the Dry Aged Ribeye). Our server was very polite and knowledgeable and friendly! We even got a tour of the place with it being our first time there and for a birthday! I will recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun and romantic night out.
Best steak I ever had cooked to perfection great place to celebrate her birthday and have a nice romantic dinner
My new fav in Albuquerque! Priced to keep the dining room private. I'll be back. . .
Overall Vernon's was very good. The service was excellent as was the atmosphere. The entree's were somewhat pricey. My only negative comment was that it was dark, which made reading the menu difficult to read.
Excellent atmosphere, great service, delicious food, overall great place. Would have been nice to see other people dressed to impress. My wife and I were dressed very nice, others in street attire. It made Vernon's not a place that would stand out. Makes people not have to dress up.
Perfect food. Perfect service
We really enjoyed our dinner and the restaurant and our waiter and the staff were all phenomenal. Our only disappointment of our evening is we didn’t get a call with a code.
The food was great. The service was ok. The other waiter in our area seemed a lot more exciting and informative.
We love Vernon’s. The food is always wonderful, we have never been disappointed. My husband and I have been there several times to celebrate our anniversary. This last time was to celebrate my fathers 79th birthday. He loved it, they made him a special dessert with apples, caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream, all his favorites.
What an incredible find! Loved the speak easy entrée/fun, and it only got better. Elegant and romantic ambiance and an amazingly knowledgeable, attentive server. The cocktails, appetizers, salad, main courses, side dishes, and dessert were all superb. The seafood cioppino (sp?), and bone-in ribeye are highly recommended. Simply one of the best meals of my life, and perhaps the most totally enjoyable dining experience ever---and I'm nearly 68-years-old. We'll definitely be back. Our new "fave".

Our last dining experience was a Hit..this one was a miss..food is always exceptional though.☹
Went to Vernon’s for our anniversary and it was such a wonderful experience. We could not ask for better service and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back!
