We were visiting the area and gave Vinaigrette a try by chance. We enjoyed the food so much we came back the next night for dinner again!

We were seated on the patio. Our server was fabulous, the food and drinks innovative and delicious and the server was accommodating about separate checks. Look forward to our next visit.

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.

We were visiting ABQ and on a dinner break from an event at the convention center and had a wonderful meal at Vinaigrette. Very easy to get to from convention center, great parking and the service was excellent and fast. The food was spectacular. We shared the kale fritters and kale nachos for an app and they were delicious and generously sized. Each of the 5 of us ordered a different salad for our main meal and everyone was raving about theirs (although some were jealous of what others had ordered as well!). Salads were not cheap, but worth it for the quality/size/deliciousness. This is a great place to feel like you're getting some tasty nutrition while travelling. I will definitely be back the next time I am in town!

We love the food at this place, really its great, and the space is really nice and airy with solid design elements. But damn this place is loud. Like metal concert loud, and I'm not sensitive to loud music, but it basically made conversation at our table impossible. The music selection was solid too, Vampire Weekend, Phoenix, LCD Soundsystem, all great stuff, but so loud. And this particular night our service was weak at best, being former servers we're not super demanding, but we waited a solid 10 minutes before our server even approached the table and then he was super blase blase about every question and request. So we might not be back unless we can sit outside.

Roasted vegetables had very spicy pepper (thai?) in it. It was an unpleasant surprise. Our guest is unable to eat peppers and was quite disappointed because the vegetables were otherwise tasty. The server did make an effort to accommodate our special dietary requirements and help find a replacement dish. The duck, tuna and pork loin were very good. We really liked that the duck was not greasy but perfectly cooked.

I took my grand-daughters to dinner for Valentines Day. The food was decent, although a little impersonal feeling. Our waitress was very friendly. The trouble began when the dinner was delivered and I use the word advisedly. We had order an appetizer for the table. Part of the main course was delivered first, then later the appetizer came, then even later the rest of the main course. I had hoped for a nice dining experience for my grand-daughters and this simply didn’t do it. All in all, a disappointment. Maybe OK for a quick lunch. Not what I was hoping for.

Vinaigrette is our go to restaurant. The main draw is healthy options - they make salads interesting and fun. Drinks are also fun - my favorite is the turmeric mimosa. There is rarely a wait and they have a nice patio for warmer months. Bread is always fresh and desserts are temptingly good. We feel better eating dessert after having a healthy meal. Thank you, Vinaigrette.

There's a reason this place gets five star review after five star review. It's an upscale Panera Bread with wine. I wish I lived close enough to eat there every day.

One of my favorite places in ABQ! I love a good salad and Vinaigrette has some of the best I have ever had. The reuben sandwich was excellent and my pork loin sweet potato shoe string salad was something to remember. Also highly recommend the Kale Fritters...even if Kale is not your thing.
