Prime rib was tough, lobster/ scallops way too salty, service was unattentive. I’m gonna have a very hard time deciding to eat here again.

I specially aput in my note this is a birthday celebration and I need flowers on table and birthday cake and there was nothing for my celebration!!! When I asked the waitress she said she doesn’t know anything about it and she was very rude about it. Even though I made a reservation my family and I had to still sit for a table. Good was ok

Can’t believe I’m writing a negative review about one of our favorite spots in Ruidoso but here goes. After a FABULOUS cocktail hour at Wendell’s Lounge, headed over for reservations at Wendell’s restaurant and we were a little surprised by the lack of clientele that were seated despite the fact that it is reservation only. Our assigned waiter, Gabriel, only had one table he was serving prior to us but acted like he was waiting on the whole restaurant with the flabbergasted attitude he had on arrival to our table with the only greeting of “are you ready to order”? Tried to order 3 different bottles of wine, (250$+ mind you), to be told “I can’t find anything on the list besides four labels”. We have dined here for 11 years and this is the first time we have basically been denied wine service, in spite of that fancy “Wine Spectator Excellence 2021” award adorning the front entrance. Waited 20min for the assistant manager who never made it to our table, to hopefully find what wines were available as our very ungracious waiter ignored us during this time. After being frequent patrons who order the best wines on the menu for over a decade, I can say we won’t be back anytime soon based off the fact we had to leave our dinner due to complete lack of service after 45 minutes. You are one of the most expensive restaurants in town Wendell’s! Do better.

It should have been $8 a bowl. We ordered 2. Had to let the waitress know after I caught it. Was already charged an the waitress said I would get the difference on my card in several days

We went for the bison, and were told it’s no longer an item on the menu due to a new chef being hired. Portions are SMALL, but our waiter was very up-front about that when we ordered. My husband and I both ordered beef entrees and both needed seasoning. Sides are also very SMALL for what you pay (I got 6-8 SMALL slices of sweet potato and a couple of greens for $8). Food was good overall, drinks were made well, and they left water at the table (so much better than constant interruptions for refills IMO). The cheesecake is delicious, very fluffy and great flavor. Wait staff and management were excellent.

Server said there was an issue w/the kitchen grill & they had to close early. 1 lg table especially loud/irritating. Server also said they were shorthanded; not good for a busy Sat evening. The manager/supervisor had no name tag that IDed him as someone in authority. Went to Wendells lounge after dinner. Bartender ignored me or failed to notice me waiting @ bar for service. Said she "was not a cocktail waitress." All in all, just an OK experience.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and we brought my sister with us. My sister and I had the ribeye steak the cook was supposed to be Medium-Well. When we both cut into our steaks they were both Beyond over cooked. More than Well done. Very tough to eat. Very disappointing.

He was inattentive, uncaring, and showed he couldn't have cared less about us as guests. He has four tables in his section, and all 4 looked miserable. When confronted about the poor service, the floor manager spoke condescendingly and cliamed he would fix the problem, to which he disappeared and did not return. I had to ask a different waiter to bring out my food because 15 minutes went by on a remake with nothing to show for it. The food was the only saving quality about the evening, but it was left under the heat lamp. Our waiter interacted with the table a total of 4 times in an hour and fifty minutes. The restaurant had multiple tables empty, but showed a full staff. Horrible service, horrible experience. I would recommend going upstairs to the sports bar instead of eating at Wendell's.
