We had a great dining experience only it took quite a while to get a table. We were sat at least 30 minutes after our reservation time.

This was so much fun! I went in expecting their vegan option to be so so... you know, like an after thought. But it was amazing! The drinks were wonderful, the staff was impeccable. I highly recommend the experience. It was so intimate and cozy.

First time diner. Was disappointed they were out of what I ordered. Changed to pork porterhouse and it wasn’t my favorite. But the green Chile grits were amazing and my husband’s filet was very good too. We were seated in one of the more exposed tables. Something in the back would have been nicer. Next time I will know to request that.

The waitress was very good and it is something unique and something that everybody has to try. Yes it is a little bit pricey and the steaks are average. The bread and oil with herbs is amazing

Great atmosphere! We sat in the lounge area where we had front row for the live piano player who was awesome. Our server was the bartender named Joshua. Excellent service. Made great suggestions for food and wine. He was very knowledgeable. Service was on point. Food was excellent. Would highly recommend. We will be back soon!

Superb coffee and an amazing meal. Vernon’s pulls out all the stops every time. Shrimp and octopus stew with a rich blend of spices, mac n’ cheese worth drooling over, and steak as well as lamb to remember. Vernon’s is ABQ’s finest steakhouse for a well-deserves reason.

Always outstanding, with the best food and service. But it was sooooo dark in there. Maybe little vintage lanterns on the tables; you could ask the guests if they wanted one or not. Otherwise, great!

I came across vernon's speakeasy while looking up places on OpenTable and went for it because you just can't pass up the opportunity for a modern speakeasy. It was a smooth experience from checking in to ordering. The services were excellent. I was able to order a spicy margarita that was on point. The food was incredible! I highly would recommend it and definitely come back.

I was blown away! A perfect environment for our anniversary celebration. The food was astounding and the service was top tier. The prime rib was spot on perfect and the sauces were fresh and well balanced. The asparagus was done exactly right with a pop on a bite but not tough or pithy. The steak fries still have me baffled. All sides were delicately crisp but not chewy or tough -on any side. Soooo good! I can’t wait to go back.

The prime rib was fatty, the mashed potatoes were lukewarm when served and the dressing on the lettuce wedge was too salty.
Desert, wine and coffee were excellent. Service excellent.
Please retire the admittance show, its just a bit too much, especially if there is more than one group waiting.
For what you charge for your beef it should be memorable, our prime rib and ribeye was not.

Birthday dinner for significant other. Everything was wonderful. We had the French onion soup to begin with, and then the filet mignon and braised short ribs as main courses. The food was excellent and the seasonal old fashioned recommended by our server was excellent as well. We had deconstructed apple crumble for desert, and everything was perfect. My partner commented she felt like she was in a movie. We’ve been to high class establishments all over - but this was one of our favorite experiences. Live music, good ambiance, unique entrance and accommodated special request with class. Overall fantastic.
