Danni provided great service. She was attentive without being intrusive. We never felt rushed, yet she was right there whenever we needed something. Thank you Danni for a pleasant evening.

It has been a year since I was last at Vinaigrette but it was as good as I remember. I had made a reservation and was able to get a table away from the door and the windows as it was a cold night. Service was flawless and the food delicious from starter (yam fries) to dessert (apple pie with maple bacon pecan ice cream). My dining companions enjoyed the wine (it was a Linberg red) and my iced tea was constantly topped off. It's a bit loud in there so intimate conversation is difficult but the place has a great energy. All in all it was time and money well-spent and we had a great time.

We enjoyed our meal after an Albuquerque Little Theatre performance. Our tea glass was never empty, the sandwiches were scrumptious! The mac and cheese was to die for! And the salads were crispy and delicate. We will go back for certain!

The food was very good and they were very flexible with changes in your salad. Service was ok. Facility is very plain. Sat on benches at the table. Felt the prices was high for what you got. Had nothing else with salad. No rolls or bread.

Vinaigrette is a great place with a wide variety of salads and soups. You can add many kinds of protein to the salads (chicken, beef, pork, ahi tuna, scallops, etc). They also have sandwiches on the menu.
We had salads. My wife had the tuna salad with ahi tuna steak and I had asian chopped salad with chicken.
Both dishes were superb! Made with fresh ingredients. In good weather they have a nice patio.
The kale and black bean nachos are wonderful.

They have lots of different salads; but, that is only the start!
They have proteins like seared tuna, scallops, chicken, etc to add to your salad.
I had the chop salad with chicken added and it was amazing! Everything very fresh.
My wife had the tuna salad with seared tuna added to it and she said it was some of the best seared tuna she has had.

We sat outside, and the ambience was wonderful. The appetizer of pesto and burrata(special) was delicious, but the Asian salad with peanut dressing did not have enough dressing, and the kale/Mexican pepita salad with cumin -lemon dressing was overwhelmed by the cumin flavor. The waitress was nice, but we had to ask for water (not a big deal, but I always take note).

Overall, very nice atmosphere, but the food was pricey for salads and left me expecting more.

I added shrimp to a salad and the shrimp was very fishy tasting. The bread, which is normally very fresh, was a day or so old, and a bit stale. Great deserts!

Tried the seasonal salad - Tuna Nicoise - greatly disappointed. Been eating here and at one in Santa Fe for years - lettuce was full of the hard part (core), almost broke a tooth on an olive pit and poor presentation compared to their usual salads. Hoping this was just an off night and not a trend.

We went late afternoon (4:30ish) and had a delightful dinner. The selections were great, salads were fabulous, and the diver scallops were perfectly cooked. It is a very vibrant, colorful dining area and is an asset to the downtown area. My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Our server, Zoe, was perfect-- caring, fun, and just the right amount of help. We will be back!

The food is alway great here. I can't complain. Plus, the patio is nice especially for more quiet conversations and outdoor dining. Inside is just too noisy for me. My only complaint was that our server never came back to check to see if we needed anything -- refills on tea or water, bread, if the food was ok, did we want dessert, etc. I realize it was a busy day but a tad more attention would have been nice. It doesn't take that much effort to swing by the table. Otherwise no complaints.

WE went for my birthday as an early dinner before a concert. I have eaten at Vinaigrette for lunch but not for dinner and was very happily surprised by the food in terms of being light but filling enough for an evening meal. It was very quiet when we arrived so we could converse easily but gives the impression that it gets louder as the evening progresses. It was a wonderful dinner for a special occasion.
