Just a wonderful spot to take someone for you and them time. Staff are attentive but not bothersome. Chef is creative and there Wednesday Night tasting menus are often worth catching (includes a bottle of wine). The dining room is not overly formal but offers a nice settling. The food is classier than the dining room, but you don't feel out of place if dressed up, sports coat, or only in jeans. It is place to just enjoy good food and your table companion.

NYE a perfect evening. The course meal with pairings made it a wonderful dining experience. Every course came with wine and served in a perfectly timed manner.
I would have liked a NYE 2017 something, but it was a lovely meal.

We went to our favorite restaurant, The Prairie Star, for dinner to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday. As usual, the dinner was wonderful. The Prairie Star is a great place to have a wonderful meal in a very quiet environment, with a very professional staff, who mange your dinner experience exceptionally well. The Prairie Star met all our expectations, which are very high from previous visits, and did it extremely well.

This is a very good restaurant. Very creative menu, the food is excellent. Well worth a 25 minute drive. The service was very good, friendly and competent. We will go there again. We also want to go back in the summer to have drinks on the patio that has a great view of the Sandias.

Prairie Star is one of our favorite places to go out for a nice meal. We normally go during special occasions, but have visited on regular dinner nights too. Food is always prepared and plated so well and there are good selections. They have a great wine selection and dessert is a lovely end to a superb meal. Service has always been good for us during our visits. We highly recommend this restaurant if anyone is looking for a nice place to eat out.

I thought the quality of the food served was, on-the-whole, average to OK. The roasted Romaine lettuce salad we both had was almost completely tasteless; there wasn't enough dressing/marinade on it and it mostly tasted like warm lettuce. We also both had the grilled scallops. The texture and cooking was good, but both our servings had a distinct "fishy" smell that detracted for the culinary experience. Finally, I thought the pairing of what was essentially a sweet ice wine with the chocolate dessert, was not the best choice that could have been made. A bold, late harvest red would have paired much better with the dark chocolate, in my opinion.
The wine options were abundant. If there ...
The wine options were abundant. If there was one thing that could be improved on was the Brussels Sprouts in the scallops. They were tough and under cooked but the stars of the entree were cooked perfectly, the scallops were a perfect texture.

We have tried Prairie Star every year hoping it will improve, but it has not. The food is mediocre and the prices are outrageous. The salmon I had last year was much better than what I had this week, which was a smaller portion and fishy. It could be a neighborhood gem, but they just can't get it together.

One of our local, fine dining favorites. Inventive menu and great wine choices. The waitstaff is a bit "uneven," ranging from seasoned veterans to awkward novices. (e.g. wine glasses filled to the brim). Still, the quality of our meals made up for the less than perfect table service. Pricey, but worth it.

The chili relleno and the accompanying salad was truly incredible. The sea bass was fried and was great, and was the reason we were going there to dine. But the tuna that was served with the sea bass outshined the bass and was perfectly done. It was an amazing dinner.

Server was friendly, but needs training. Did not know how to serve wine. Poured wine into glasses over the table and then placed them, making for an awkward presentation. Dinner was very slow and server did not keep us informed as to when ours would arrive. Noticed that tables that arrived after us received their food before ours.

This was my second time visiting this location food was very good and service was perfect, seem to have lost some of the ambiance that I had remembered from last visit, felt like date & I were somewhat distanced by table size & lighting was not as omantic

This was our third time here, the first two times were really quite disappointing but we were very happy with our dinner this time. Evidently they have new management & that has made a world of difference! Everything was really great other than a noisy group seated near us but even that didn't ruin our good time. And you sure can't beat the view! We will definitely dine here again.

I can't blame it on the restaurant, but the view of the Sandia Mountains is OUTSTANDING! Excellent service with a smile, outstanding bar keep -- provided an outstanding Margarita. Menu presented quaint selection with nice presentation. The dry-rubbed pork loin and bison steak were great.

I was somewhat disappointed with the service on this night. the restaurant was not at all busy that's why the service surprised me. it took a while for the waiter to bring us bread and get our drinks ! felt the service was not up to par on this night!

Second visit to Prairie Star, and it was great! Good food, great service, Tara was our server, very friendly, personable and did a very good job serving.
The steaks are perfect, and the Wagyu beef burger will spoil you, burger elsewhere will never come close, the truffle fries were so tasty. I enjoyed this dinner ans previously, savored a delicious steak with savory bread pudding, a delightful taste treat instead of potatoes.There is an extensive wine list and oh, the desserts! excellent!!
