Los Poblanos Historic Inn & Organic Farm Ratings and Reviews

I have to admit after all I had heard about this place I was very disappointed with my entree. It was good but really unremarkable. I guess I understand the whole farm to table appeal that is very popular right know but the menu was so small I felt like I had settled on what I had. I will leave this one for the "Organic farm to table crowd " cause I guess i'm just not that trendy and want more selection. The service was great and atmosphere was nice.

Los Poblanos is one of the best dining experiences in Albuquerque. The restaurant is incorporated into the farm and inn, all tucked back among the cottonwoods toward the riverfront bosque in the scenic North Valley neighborhood. This makes for a tranquil and spectacular setting. You'll smell lavender and may even see a peacock wandering the grounds. There is both indoor and outdoor seating, both of which are lovely. The food is excellent and generally makes use of seasonal and local ingredients. The service is friendly if not always responsive. We sipped a delicious lavender champagne cocktail on the veranda before sitting down to our meal. I specified on the reservation that it was our anniversary and we were congratulated by both the hostess and waitress and given a complimentary gift. Thank you for the lovely evening!

Food was less than desirable. The fish dish did not work on so many levels I don't know where to start. They served a warm cheese and fig dish that was good, but didn't serve any thing to spread it on.And when we asked for bread took 15min to get it. Wait staff friendly but slow. Breakfast wasn't any better.

Good food and amazing atmosphere. The historical aspects of the venue is really neat and adds to the whole experience. Also, the staff are second to none. Every person we talked to was extremely nice and helpful, which really made the meal truly enjoyable. We will definitely be back.

The dining room was perfect for our small group of friends. The setting was quiet, private and the food was beautifully presented. We were disappointed to not be one of the lucky ones to obtain a reservation for accommodations at the Inn even though I tried a year in advance. However having dinner there was impressive.

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 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 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.
