We had a wonderful time today. Our server was really on top of things and the food was excellent. The manager came by a couple times to check on us as well, he was a very nice guy. After our meal we had a wonderful drink special I think it was some blood orange drink they called it ...... we really enjoyed our Sunday at Vintage.

When we were seated it took 10 minutes to be acknowledged. It was clear there was confusion on who the server was supposed to be. Service very slow. When we were finally assigned a server we ordered appetizers and our dinner and everything took a long time. We also had to wait a good 10-15 minutes for a drink. This is an expensive high end restaurant and the service level was more like a diner. I would not return to this restaurant or recommend it to friend especially when spending hard earned money.

Excellent upscale dining. All 4 of us throughly enjoyed our appetizers, entrees and desert from the special New Years Eve menu which were new dishes from their new chef Martin Torrez. We look forward to returning for more of his creations.

Great ambiance and good service in a venue like no other in Albuquerque.

The food was great. We enjoyed our waiter (also great) and the table service was very attentive. However the hostess was horrible. On the way to our table, I slipped and fell. Their flooring is very slick (other people have confirmed this). My husband helped me up while she looked on. Then when we got to our table, which was very small and poorly situated, I asked if we could have a larger one. I was told they had full reservations that night, understood. Then she proceeded to seat other 2 top customers after us at 4 top tables. When we left there were numerous open tables in the room, and in my mind no reason we couldn't have had a larger table. I totally understand when a restaurant is full and I don't ask to be moved. But we had a reservation and I think we should have been accomodated. I felt there was attitude with the hostesses and I was not very impressed. And no one ever came by to see if I was alright. But again, our server and table support were great. And again, the meal was top-notch.

service was medicore, nearby tables crowded in blocking our booth preventing the server from easily accessing our table and when we left the person sitting at the closest table had to get up to let us out. asked for the birthday chocolate cake and were offered cheesecake instead and charged for it. birthday cake used to be free here and we should have been told there was a charge especially since it wasn't what we wanted

Special occasion and we were looking for something special in ABQ. First time visit and we won't be back. Arrived early evening, asked for a booth and we were told they were booked and busy, yet the entire meal, booths around us were left empty. Service was good and our waiter tried his best. Food was over priced and portions were on the small side.

My wife and I came here for an early Thanksgiving dinner out on Wednesday evening. We chose Vintage because they have a new chef and we were familiar with him from his previous job. We started with delicious duck conit taquitos that came with three sauces that were wonderful. We each had one of the two specials for the evening. My wife had the grilled fresh lobster tail that came with a spicy cauliflower side that was really spicy. Chef Martin is not afraid to go bold! I had the Rozzini which was a fillet mignon with a generous piece of foi grois on top. It was perfectly prepared and the foi grois made it a decantly rich dish. We look forward to return trips here as chef Martin makes the menu more his own.

 (Palm Springs)·Dined on November 18, 2017

Wife had chicken cordon blue it was very dry hardly any cheese served just warm. She did not finish it as a result. They charged $29 for it, it easily was worth $8. My friend also had the short ribs like me. My short ribs were very fatty, the flavor not particularly outstanding. His wife had a salad which she said was “fine.” The ribs would have been a good $10 meal versus the $32+ that they actually cost. Wine was very good. Had Creme Brûlée for dessert, it was only ok could have been a bit warmer tasted bland. Our total bill including tip and tax was $130 per couple there were two couples. Both couples Together spent almost $300 for a meal that should have cost $50 per couple including wine. The mashed potatoes however, were very good. Our server Carrie (not sure I am spelling it correctly) was excellent. Friendly and pleasant, knows her wines and worked hard on trying to upsell me on a $65 Pinot Noir. We declined. Enjoyed our seating, located in an enclosed area very private and quiet, away from other diners. Our palates are very discerning having eaten in several five star restaurants many with Michelin stars over the years in the US and the Pacific Rim. Vintage 423 rates low on our overall taste experience. Unfortunately based on the lackluster, unimpressive food we are unable to recommend Vintage 423 to anyone. We will not be returning.

Very good food. The waiter struck the right balance between attentiveness and letting us be on our own. I had the sword fish steak which comes with brussel sprouts and risotto. The fish and risotto were amazing. The brussel sprouts were a bit undercooked, but still pretty good. My only real complaint was that at one of the fanciest restaurants in ABQ the people at the table next to us were dressed pretty sloppy. I understand that it's Albuquerque, but the father was wearing a baseball cap, t-shirt, and shorts. I tend to dress up a little bit too much for fancy dinners, but most other people were at least in sweaters and slacks, or similar.

Atmosphere was very nice and comfortable. I was called the morning of reservation to confirm. Asked type of seating preferred (booth) and confirmation it was an 82nd birthday (yes). We were not given a booth until I asked and birthday never acknowledged. Shrimp was bit tough and sauce very spicy. Said it came with asparagus, carrots and Brussel sprouts--no Brussel sprouts. Filet was very good, but certainly not 9 ounce. Said it came with mashed potatoes, instead received gratin potatoes which were good. Very slow in receiving food from time of order. Waitress very pleasant and accommodating. Mixed emotions about returning based on experience.

The food required a develop taste for under cooked veggies and jumbo shrimp . Not that the food was not good but how it was prepared, I prefer my food to be cooked more than what I was served this night. THe menue did not have much of a selection of red meat. The wine was good. The desert was not frim but soft and runny. I give it a 2 1/2 out of 5.

THIS WAS MY SECOND TIME I HAD DINNER AT VINTAGE 423 I WAS HOPPING AN APPROVED EXPERIANCED DINNING.

We have been wanting to try vintage because of the balcony with a great view of the mountains. Turns out the balcony was not open so we sat on the patio downstairs. Still a very nice atmosphere and view. Service was slow on the patio but it didn't bother us much because we were not in a hurry. For dinner we split the iceberg lettuce salad which was plenty for two people and well done. For main courses one of us had calamari and the other had chicken Cordon Bleu. The calamari was somewhat overcooked, but otherwise okay. The chicken Cordon Bleu was way overcooked and not edible. It was sent back and we just shared the calamari.
Seems like a nicely located and attractive restaurant, but the kitchen needs some serious oversight.

Three of us visited this restaurant on a recent Saturday evening. When the restaurant called to confirm that we were actually going to appear, we informed them that this was a special occasion, namely the birthday of one member of our party. The ambiance reminded us immediately of a second rate Las Vegas restaurant, of the sort that is striving for elegance but sadly misses the mark by failing to have a cohesive theme or design, thereby ending up looking like something in an old hotel far from the Las Vegas Strip. The appetizers sampled included cups of Lobster Bisque , which was quite good, and an Iceberg Lettuce Wedge Salad, which easily have served two, and was more notable for size than elegance of presentation. The diner who ordered the tiger shrimp was pleased with the dish. The diner who ordered short ribs, which is essentially nothing more than brisket or pot roast, found the portion to be quite small, as were the accompanying servings of asparagus and haricots verts. The third diner ordered the chicken cordon bleu. The plating of the chicken was lovely. However, the dish was served at room temperature which considerably diminished both the flavor and the texture of the chicken and its stuffing. We decided, to order desserts, key lime pie, and pineapple cake. When they arrived at the table, we mentioned to the server that no one had yet acknowledged that we were celebrating a birthday. He quickly said, well, we do that by giving you a free dessert, so the celebrant gets free dessert. It was only too obvious that no one in the restaurant had planned to do anything, and the waiter was tap dancing as fast as he could to compensate for that fact. There is no reason whatever that we would ever come back here or recommend it to anyone. It is a restaurant aimed at people who mistakenly think that if you see words like sopressata or bresaola on the menu, you're in a classy restaurant. They're wrong.
