We loved the atmosphere Fun place to go to We would recommend it to friends Food great but a lot We were from out of town so couldn't take any home
Food was solid. Very big portions. Maybe a little too big. Atmosphere was wonderful.
I love it here. Always a fan of the dry age steak. Great wine/alcohol list.
Great, and I mean great food. It better at their prices too. They are expensive! But for once and while special occasions, perfect. My complaints are very superficial. 1. It was very noisy. I thought it was gonna be a dressed up facny evening. People were there in jeans and t shirts (which is fine I just thought it was fancy), and we couldn't hear each other. 2. The speakeasy theme was really cool in the begging with the password and the door guys speech! But, after that it was just a restaurant. It would have been nice for the theme to carry through to the dinning experience too. That's it. That's all I can say. It was awesome! Can't wait until next year to go again! GET THE QUAIL
Great night and lots of fun. Food was amazing.
We had a great experience! Food was phenomenal! Definitely recommend and will return!
I always wanted to go to Vernon’s Speakeasy, and when the opportunity came, Vernon’s was everything I expected and more! If you want to romance your spouse, amazing food, or just an ambiance like no other, Vernon’s Speakeasy is your restaurant!
Our server was excellent. Made great recommendations and was so friendly. we enjoyed the ambiance, food and wine.
This was a terrific, unique dining experience! We'll definitely return!
Had a great experience here! Kristen, our waitperson, was very professional and friendly. Our steak was cooked to perfection. Quiet, dimly lit, Chicago atmosphere with great background music. Not easy to find if you can’t follow the clues! Just find the address and KNOCK! Can’t wait to take unsuspecting friends here. Be sure to click on the menu and know beforehand prices and selections. It’s not cheap, but it’s worth the unique dining experience.
I took my wife there to celebrate her birthday. I didn't tell her a head of time, but I gave it away during the drive there. She was absolutely thrilled that we were going to Vernon's. We both like it and it's just a neat place to go. We both had the ribeye and baked potatoe. She had a crab/bernaise sauce on her's, I had half a lobster tail with mine. My lobster tail wasn't the best, but the rest of it made up for that. They even had a little dessert made up for my wife and she said it was really good. I had the New York style cheesecake. Simply marvelous!!! Our waiter, and I don't know that I ever caught his name, was one of the best any where that we have had take care of us. It was an absolute success on my part, and Vernon's is and will be our choice of someplace special to go for those special occasions.
I expected a top of the line experience considering the word of mouth that was circulating about this place. It went from okay, to bad, to worse. I made it clear to the staff that I hadn’t been here before and bearing that in mind, I expected to be part of the restaurant, instead we were sat in the corner with an almost empty restaurant. I went to the restrooms where there was no tissue and no paper towels which I decide to look past but then my waitress rubbed me the wrong way. I expressed to her that I did not want anything to drink because I forgot my wallet at home but my boyfriend ordered himself a Tito’s and tonic. A little while later, there are multiple plates and glasses on the table. He happened to sit his beverage somewhat close to me and the waitress accused me of drinking his drink with no ID. I was sipping on water for the whole 20 minutes we were there. My boyfriend was tryng to do something nice for me and they blew my entire experience. Needless to say, we left before we got our food. What was worth noting was how polite and generous the manager was. He paid for the one beverage we had and our salads when he realized we weren’t satisfied, I made it clear to him that I receive better service at Chili’s and that we likely would not be back. We were just a little disappointed.
Took my lady here for a date/dine evening. Great place terrific service and we were treated how we like which is above average and the service here was spectacular. Will certainly recommend and will have to come back because it was just that good. Great Place worth enjoying.
If I could give six stars for ambience, I would. Great food.
Celebrated my 21st birthday here, the staff was very friendly and knowledgable. Food was unbelievable.
Delish definitely a wonderful place to eat we love the the show
Vernon's speak easy has a great atmosphere and food. We went on Easter Sunday for the brunch and it was great. We will return to sample the regular menu at our first opportunity. It's an authentic speak-easy, and you'll need a password to get past the bouncer at the door. The drink selection is great, and the seating is quite comfortable. The ambiance is authentic, and quite a bit of fun.
I have been to Vernon's for dinner and had a fantastic experience. The food and service was unbelievable. This was my first time visiting the restaurant for brunch and it did not meet my expectations! The food was overpriced for the quality and the service was painfully slow, though there were very few tables in the entire restaurant.
I would only recommend for dinner!
My boyfriend and I came to Vernons for my Birthday. It was amazing! The food was to die for and the atmosphere was so relaxing. I highly recommend it!
A special treat! Ambiance unique and fun. Excellent entrees and wine!
The food was fantastic. The staff were friendly and did a wonderful job. I will be going back for more.
As usual, Vernon's did not disappoint. The steaks were fantastic, the lamb was superb, and the wine choice that our server (Gabe) recommended was right on point. Everything from the wonderfully concocted cocktails, to the delicious green chili Caesar was perfect! We will most definitely be coming back!
We celebrated our 30th anniversary at Vernon’s and really enjoyed the feeling that we were out of town! The service is excellent, the suggestions our waiter made were right on, our steak and scallops were perfectly prepared and everything as delicious! There were several nice wines by the glass, and we were brought a desert for our celebration. Though the restaurant is top dollar, the whole experience was well worth the expense!
We have been to Vernon's Speakeasy on numerous occasions for our anniversary. Have always had a memorable experience, quite & romantic. This last visit a group of 7 patrons were sat right next to us which were a bit loud for the atmosphere I was looking for.
Looking to rekindle the flame with your spouse? Wanting to impress That special someone? Look no further. Vernon's speakeasy is the place of choice..As soon as you walk in, you are introduced to the elegant beauty of the mob lifestyle..a place of warmth, privacy, wealth, and the feeling that you can have anything with the wink of an eye or violent snap of the fingers. Paying $48 for a 16oz NY strip steak is a small price for a cut that is prepared with such caution. The service is; of course, what you would except from other mobsters beneath you.. They answer to you without hesitation. From placing the cloth on your lap as you are seated, to escorting you out, knowing you will be back time and time again. Patiently awaiting your return..
Was a wonderful experience and made a special ocassion quite special.
Steak was over cooked and not cooked evenly. Service average.
We very much enjoyed visiting Vernon’s during our stay in Albuquerque. It was a very unique establishment, and the food was perfection. Thank you so much for a memorable evening!
Just enjoyed the experience, food and service was perfect
Food was disappointing..not up to par. Steak was tough and the wife's seafood was closer to sushi. Prime rib was unremarkable. They had to bring out the peppers for my green beans and red peppers...I dont quite understand that... arent they cooked together? The pastry chef didn't make enough bread pudding so I had to do without..seems the kitchen had an off day.
Service was excellent
Ambience was fun as always
Need to do a bit more quality control on the food ..
The best steak hoise ive been too in Albuquerque. Definetly going again!
Interesting place and certainly not the typical "steakhouse". Service was very good and wait staff was pleasant and professional. The prime rib was quite good and served per request.My wife had a salmon dish and liked it as well. Maybe a little pricey, but an overall good experience.
If you're looking for Instagram worthy food that also tastes great, look no further than Vernon's. This was the second time I've been to the speakeasy, and I will continue to recommend dining here at least once in your life, if not every time you want to treat yo' self.
Our son was going on a Hero's Journey and we were having one last fling before he left. We had the best time ever. This is about our 5th trip in the past 10 months. Vernon's is great if you want the very best in food and service. Our wait person was Sterling who lived up to his namesake. He was fabulous. Out usual waiter, Sean, was sick. Sean is superb. Ask for either Sean or Sterling. You will have a memorable great evening.
I had the (10 oz.) roast pork tenderloin and it was cooked exactly how I asked for it. My wife had the lamb chops, also to die for. Our son had a surf (lobster tail) and turf special, also a fantastic choice. When you really want to "Be Good to Yourself" or your friends or business associates: this is The place to do it.
Super fun theme
Perfect for a date
Great place, great service had a great time! Celebrated a birthday and the staff as was very attentive. Food was great we enjoyed our time!
Outstanding in every way... I loved the bouncer at the door! He took his job very seriously and was absolutely wonderful at it!!!
We were celebrating 2 birthdays (71 and 92), and Vernon's was highly recommended for a special event occasion. We loved the gangster era genre, the secret password to get in using the black door with the red light above. All of that was so much fun and different, and was perfect for our special occasions. It's a little pricey for general dining, but worthwhile for out-of-town-guests, birthdays, etc. The food was delicious, the staff were very fun and entertaining, and the service was fabulous. We were there on a Wednesday, but I'd like to go back when the piano player is there - weekends.
We LOOOOOOOVED it!!! My wife and I were celebrating our 18th anniversary and we were blown away. The food, the drinks, the service, the ambiance...it was an EXPERIENCE! We absolutely can’t wait to go back. We had the 21 day dry-aged Ribeye (the crust....oh my goodness) with pan-seared Scallops (so delicate and clean), the adult Mac N Cheese (wow) and the half fried seafood appetizer (the sauce...mmmmmm) with some drinks (Lagavulin and Hennessy XO). IT WAS SUBLIME. We listened to our Guide (he was too good to be called a server or waiter) and he steered us right.
