This was our first dining experience since arriving in Albuquerque and we chose well! Notwithstanding the speakeasy” concept (including having to give a password at the door and being read the “rules” by an actor dressed as a wise guy), the food and service were absolutely top-notch. We both had steaks (filet and ribeye); highly recommend. And kudos to the pianist!

Customer service was great!! Waitress was great!!. Food was low quality, cooked wrong, first of all it was prime rib under cooked, then they brought out a new one ?? That was a steak instead of prime rib? How did this happen? With that mess going on they brought out wrong sides?? I don't think they have the kitchen figured out yet? My dog will love a over cook bottom round? Maybe. 150.00 for dog food,and they messed up a anniversary dinner. I've been here 3 times now this was ,this might keep me from going back.

This was SUCH a fun place! I would love to go there for a "roaring 20s" party and dress like a flapper, etc. It was elegant and had great ambience in the candle-lit rooms, loved the soft dinner music. The food was pretty good - pretty pricey for what we got, but you're paying for the atmosphere and service. Great place, can't wait to take a group of friends!

The entire atmosphere and restaurant is such a great time. The food was excellent and so were the beverages (Old Fashioned). If you want a romantic night out or a great group activity then this has to be a must stop on the to-do list!

We knew it was going to be hokey entering the establishment and it was in good fun. The wine was meh, the aged ribeye was a disappointment and short rib wasn’t much. We can now say we gave it a try but will not be back. Not a place for foodies.

Awesome place for a cool, smooth atmosphere. Little to close to our neighbors so we got to hear their arguing even though they were keeping it low but otherwise nice chill spot and the people are wicked nice.

Such a unique "restaurant" in this speak-easy. Would be great for a date. Nice wine list and the food was very good (although the beef filet was a little overdone).

Was really good. A place we would probably come back to. Being from the Northwest it's hard to get decent seafood and I may have like the mussels more had the sauce not been so overwhelming.
The duck salad was good. The atmosphere ok, almost too attentive.

We had the perfect dining experience what we did was share a wedge salad ordered 1 order of the scallops which were the best we’ve ever had then we split one 8 ounce filet mignon which was perfect and the bread they brought out with the olive oil was excellent as well
