    It was our first time at Vernon's. The instructions for getting in were clear and concise. The ambience and experience leading to and at the dining hall are unparalleled. Service was impeccable. My food (salmon fillet) was on the bland side, but okay for me because I have hypertension. The prime rib that my husband and son ordered was also on the bland side, but cooked at the right temperature they specified. We also liked the broccolini our food came with. Another thing we appreciated was the photo shoot with free prints.

    Best steaks in Albuquerque! The 20 oz bone-in ribeye is my favorite! If you like classic or seasonal cocktails, this is your place. The bar manager, Logan, is outstanding. I've also attended his mixology classes at Vernon's. Granted it is a bit pricey, but most certainly worth it. So knock off the fast food for a while and save up to spend a fantastic evening at Vernon's Speakeasy!!!!!

    Well, this was our 4th time here in like 2 months and it's still amazing. I absolutely love the ambiance from the second we arrive. The staff has been nothing short of excellent and we feel personally taken care of. On to the food, spectacular. I've had the filet, Los Ranchos star ribeye, regular boneless ribeye and the dry aged rib eye, all cooked to exactly how I wanted. My wife got the halibut this visit and said it was really good as well. No leftovers this time. The cocktails are next level too, I usually get the table smoked old fashioned and a wine to pair with the steak. Sean is the man, he has been our server every time and I do t want anyone else. He's an encyclopedia on the cocktails and wines and has yet to make a bad recommendation. Over all, this is definitely our favorite place to dine in the city, hands down. Can't wait to go back!

    John and the rest of the serving staff were wonderful! They made a fun night even better. The meal did take a while and it would have been good to hear when it would be at our table, but that was only a minor hiccup to the overall evening. Steaks, vegetables and appetizers were all cooked to perfection. Will be back, Happy Diner

    We had a wonderful dinner here to celebrate my son’s birthday. We were a party of 6 including our 7 year old granddaughter. I let them know in advance she would be coming in case they wanted to place us in a room away from those expecting an adults only experience. We prepared her before our arrival about the overall theme of the restaurant as well as what our entrance would be like. She thoroughly enjoyed the experience! All of our dishes were delicious. This is a great special occasion restaurant as well as for a cozy dinner for two.

    As always, Vernon's delivered another great night of dining. It was a rare mid-week outing for us and we were sure happy we ventured out. The service, the food, the drinks...tremendous. Full of vibrance and flavor from the first sip/bite to the very last morsel of desert. We can't wait for our next married couple date night at Vernon's!

    Excellent restaurant for special occasions. Service was excellent. Food quality and preparation met expectations from previous visits. The "speakeasy" setting is designed to be dark. Small lamps have been added at each table, which is a definite plus. We prefer paper menus over electronic, and they were provided upon request. Would have preferred a longer list of single-glass wine selections.

    I do love this restaurant. The food is excellent and well worth the splurge. The serving staff was very attentive to our gluten free needs, often checking with the chef to be sure of ingredients and cross contamination. Our water glasses never got below half full. My husband's only complaint was that when the server boxed up his steak, the leftover au jus was not included. All in all, I highly recommend Vernon's for a romantic and/or celebratory dinner!

    This night was especially important for it was a celebration for me and three high school friends (we graduated from Bassett High in La Puente, CA in 1977) as we all celebrate our 65th birthday this year and have been gathering yearly for the past 17 years! They are big steak eaters…I am not. However, if i have a steak, you bet it’s going to be from Vernon’s! From the moment when I had one of my friends provide the required password to gain entrance, the intro provided by our doorman, the waitress & busboy’s attentive service, our drinks and meals (we all ordered the 14 oz boneless ribeye), and ending with our three desserts, we had one of the best dining experiences ever!

    Great place, great service. They have started letting things slide that I don't like. Noise level is much louder from guests than it used to be and dress code doesn't mean anything anymore. Complete opposite from their rules online.
