It was very disappointing this time ..we have been several times in the past.
Food was MEH!
I went home and fixed something to eat, because I was hungry..
But the company was great.
Also we asked for specific instructions for our honored guests and that did not happen
Simply amazing! The ingredients are fres ...
Simply amazing! The ingredients are fresh, close and healthy which makes for a delicious satiating meal. Our server Ben was everything you'd want in a waiter. I've been going to Los Poblanos for years and I'll continue to enjoy the Los Poblanos experience for as long as I live in Albuquerque! If your visiting Albuquerque Los Poblanos is an absolute must, if you live in Albuquerque Los Poblanos is an absolute must.

IT WAS VERY GOOD, However the service was ok not stellar. The food was good - not awesome. I think the portions are very small. The Halibut was cooked well but was very plain and the vegetables with it were not cooked well and were cold. The steak and pork was very good. The cheese plate was good but not much of it and the Burrata with Peaches was only Ok.

What ambience! We started off with a designer cocktail in the quaint, historic bar and what a treat--try the lavender champagne with an orange twist. We sat on the covered patio and had the Sandia Mountains as a backdrop and bursting yellow sunflowers in the foreground. A peacock strutted nearby just to make sure we would appreciate his beauty as well. This very quiet and relaxing setting is memorable for any special occasion or to just soak up the surroundings while actually listening to your tablemate's conversation. A peaceful, elegant place without any stuffiness. The food is magnificent and service is the same. As if on cue to bring our memorable evening to a special ending, sandhill cranes, formed into a perfect V, flew over us.

This place is beautiful--the food, the location, and the staff. When you drive down the tree-lined path that leads to the inn, it feels as if you're entering a different world. A world you may not want to leave... I, for one, can't wait to go back.

Beautiful dining out on the patio preceded by a wonderful aperitif in the Sala. Hope the Sala remand accessible to non-guest diners occasionally once new restaurant is open. Food was spectacular again -- boldly flavored but balanced and with rich and nuanced sauces. Meat and vegetables cooked perfectly. Innovative bit not not gimmicky- many things I wanted to order. Enjoyed the melon soup and chicken especially. Than you !

My husband and I really enjoyed our anniversary celebration at Los Poblanos. The setting was perfect and the food was excellent. The wait staff was very attentive. I highly recommend the cheese plate, the green chile pork meatballs and the french press coffee. It was a wonderful evening.

This is one of the most picturesque settings for a restaurant. My mother and I were traveling from out of town and we stayed at the farm/inn which is gorgeous and well run. Our dinner was absolutely perfect in every way. First, the staff (hostess, server, water/dish person) was warm and welcoming. The ambiance was relaxed and low key yet everything was tastefully decorated and presented. There is a special quality here that is hard to describe. Wine was excellent and our appetizers were delicious. My mom had the roasted fall vegetables and I had the melon soup. We shared the lavender roasted chicken which came with greens and a delicious sauce. I highly recommend this dish! Whenever I am back in town I will definitely return to Los Poblanos!

The ambiance could not have been more lovely. The service was very relaxed and diner-centric. We were not hurried or pressured in anyway. The food was exquisite in presentation and preparation. What I most appreciated was that there was a little of everything on the menu. Whether you need gluten free or vegan, there was something for you. So while the menu and wine list was not extensive, everything we ate (and drank) was excellent. I appreciate that. Like going into a boutique or a bookstore specializing in a few subjects. I highly recommend Los Poblanos.

Los Pablanos Restaurant and Inn is in an exquisite setting among organic gardens of lavender and greens used in the menu. The historic Spanish style lounge & restaurant building and rooms surround an elegant courtyard ...the restaurant has an attached patio for seasonal outdoor dining. The food is perfection but a la carte and expensive. Each dish is an art form approaching a work of art. This was a special nite for us in a five day visit to Albuquerque in which we sampled a diverse experience from high end (Los Pablanos NW) to low end. Los Pablanos Inn and Restaurant was an experience of simple authentic elegance ...an experience we were grateful to enjoy...even once.

While the food and the location can't be beat. I was disappointed in the chairs and tables. It felt like I was at a cafe, but was paying way too much for cafe food. There should have been better chairs, and tablecloths. The tables were again tiny, and over all not an overall great dining experience for that much expensive.

In short, the folks here aim to please. The waitstaff could not have been more attentive, from our arrival until our departure. The cuisine was impeccably prepared, and the presentation was equally impressive. If you are looking for a special dining venue with class, but not stuffy, this is the place to go.
The setting is great. Server was very a ...
The setting is great. Server was very attentive and caring checking back a few times to make certain everything was fine. Score given to food was lower. Although creative was just ok. Steak was slightly tough and the mushroom study dish was over salted (I've also seen salt being an issue in other reviews). Also meal was served while we were eating appetizers so that was a concern. We have eaten other meals here, although not dinner, and enjoyed them. Still recommend this as a nice place to enjoy a special occasion meal.

Los Poblanos is outstanding. It is a one of a kind place with historic roots in Albuquerque. It is understated in a European way, very hard to find these days in the US. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a memorable meal in the Albuquerque region.

The food was so so. In particular, the steak was poorly plated and the potatoes were hum drum baked in oven with oil. Not as nicely plated as pictures we saw. The turnip appetizer was raw and no bite satisfied any of the four of us. The chicken was bland. The only high point was the blackberry pie. All in, all were highly disappointed.

Los Poblanos is a perfect place for a fancier, intimate, and quiet date night. The property is beautiful. Gorgeous peacocks roam the land. We were welcomed with wine and seated promptly. The food was great. This is definitely a worthy spot to spend your evening!

For a first-time visitor, signage was wholly inadequate in determining where to go and where to park. The only sign indicating a restaurant was stuck in a back corner of the inn's front porch, making it quite easy to drive past without seeing it.
The facility is highly disrespectful of the mobility-challenged guest, with parking and facility access being significant impediments. Surprising in this day and age.
Will not return as a guest. Will not do a corporate function there either.

We sat outside on the patio, which was great. Los Poblanos is definitely a beautiful place. If you have never been here, I would recommend going at least once during a nice time of year and sitting outside. This was definitely the highlight of the dinner. The service was okay, but nothing special considering this is supposed to be one of the best restaurants in ABQ. The food was good, but again, not outstanding as we were all expecting (this was our first time at the restaurant). It would have been nice to have a couple more dinner options as well. I would say that we probably won't come back to Los Poblanos, but it was a good experience to try at least once.

This was my third trip to Los Poblanos, and overall, I have to say that the dinners here are the best farm to table Albuquerque has to offer! We moved to Albuquerque less than a year ago, and this quickly became our go-to spot for special occasion celebrations. That said, my trip here in July wasn't quite up to par with the previous trips earlier this past spring and winter -- I'll chock it up to an off night. The entrees we ordered, green chile pork meatballs and the allium pasta, were uncharacteristically salty. Part of the problem may be that last time we came, the meatballs were out of this world (!!!), melt in your mouth magical, and by comparison this time, they were just okay (a little tough, plus the saltiness). The pasta was beautiful and tasty, but again, seemed on the salty end to me; again, by comparison, the white pasta on last year's winter menu was well balanced on salt. I highly recommend the cheese plate as an appetizer or dessert, and splurging on a bottle of wine higher than my typical price point was definitely not a decision I regretted! We also ordered a chicken sausage / crostini appetizer, which had a good light flavor. I also have to say that the modest complementary rolls, though unassuming, are superb! In addition to the food, we loved seeing three of the resident peacocks strutting around just outside the dining room windows -- including the all white one! Just beautiful! The dining room is lovely as well, and we marveled at the beautiful wooden tabletops (similarly designed cutting boards made of the same juniper wood are available for purchase in the Farm Shop, though it closes at 5!). Though it was too hot the day we visited, the outdoor dining area is also beautiful. Some other guests braved the 95+ degree temperatures to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air and views.

Los Pablanos is a unique setting: in the "bosque" of the Rio Grande, shaded by century-old cotton woods. The original buildings are a 19th century New Mexican hacienda with a wonderful interior courtyard. It's a working farm. We ate on the outdoor patio adjoining the smallish dining room. Patio furniture is rather flimsy and uncomfortable. There is an adjoining bosque ball court which we used while waiting for our cocktails. (no spirits, only wine & beer). Service was too leisurely but cordial. Food was excellent: small portions, attractive, fresh, tasty. Some unique choices, e.g. Mushroom Study (very good melange of 4 kinds of mushrooms each prepared differently). Home made blackberry pie was superb - flaky crust, loaded with fruit, perfect with vanilla ice cream.

Breakfast was wonderful as well as dinner. Great food and staff. Lots of local ingredients. I understand the dining area is moving after renovation is done. I happen to like the feel of the restaurant where it is right now.

What a place! Los Poblanos Historic Inn is beautifully maintained. The room where we had a drink is perfectly decorated, very inviting and cozy. The dining room options (indoors/outdoors) are lovely and comfortable. Such a peaceful setting. Delicious food, prepared attractively, with tasty choices for vegetarians. Great beer and wine selections. Wonderfully attentive wait staff too. Overall the best dining experience in New Mexico!

Enjoyed creative menu with unusual tastes. Keep it up and keep experimenting. The dining room however is not conducive to quiet dining due to the historical quality of the room. We took a walk around the rose garden after dinner and found the gardens to be quite overgrown.

I think this is the best restaurant in town. Farm to table (veg & meats) , very inventive & delicious menu (i.e., "mushroom study", desert cheese plate, chicken sausage appetizer, etc). It's Ala cart with creative sides. Sparkling wine by the glass, Exceptional service, historic settings, elegant, grownups. Walk around the grounds, see albino (and other) peacocks........
