Rancher's Club of New Mexico Ratings and Reviews
Walking into the hotel was a nice updated experience. Walking into the Rancher’s lounge was very pleasing to the eye because of the leather club chairs and wood paneling. Beautiful decor and rustic. It makes you want to sit and enjoy a nice and neat whiskey and a beautiful woman.
Floyd was our waiter and he was delightful. The food was delicious as always. We dine here once a year for special occasions and we try to bring someone with us that has never been there before. I have to say she enjoyed it as well. Keep up the goid work and see you soon.
The service was horrendous, the waiter was totally off the entire night. He was slow, inattentive and even missed our salads. When reminded he even asked if we wanted them with the entrée. Just plain bad.
That said, the manager was stellar. She went to great lengths to ensure we would return - and we will. Hence the 4 stars. We've been going here for ages and I guess anyone can have a bad night.
Ah, for the days of yore! High class restaurants in Albuquerque are no more. Pretty ordinary food, nothing special. Out of champagne splits, but for our anniversary they opened a large bottle of WARM proseco...oh yum. No special flourishes like before, cleaning crumbs from the table, serving entrees with a cloche...no wonder they weren't busy, just basic. I mentioned several times that I'm gluten free, but the complimentary dessert we got was bread pudding! Thanks
The only problem with the meal was that the restaurant was freezing, making it hard to fully relax and fully enjoy the food. The meal was excellent, the presentation was beautiful, and we greatly enjoyed our waiter, who was natural, attentive without being intrusive, and very nice.
Let's start from the hostess. She canceled my open table reservation without inquiry. She was smug and though she apologized later, it was a facade.
The service was barely adequate and we had to flag down our server and remind him of our requests.
The food was expected to be high quality but fell short. The prime rib was tough. The vegetables on both plates were cold and not cooked thourouly. The baked potato was perfect but that was the only thing on the plate that was. For the price and reputation of Ranchers, I expected better.
It was a disappointment.
The restaurant was a bit loud due to the table full of cackling hens next to us. But when they left a couple that had apparently been drInking earlier had come in and started on a bottle of wine and were a bit annoying. They let the guy in with shirts & a t-shirt. The steak was good although not exactly cooked to my specifications nor were any of the steaks my part he ordered. The crab macaroni & cheese was not very tasty it was actually quite fishy. I could not eat it.
Wow absolutely incredible this is my favorite place in Albuquerque and this time was did not disappoint once again!!! However I asked a question to my server and I felt attacked because supposedly my question was invalid by the server to which she will she shall remain nameless but other Than that I will always return for the amazing atmosphere food and service thank you for what you people do
First of all if you do not like western decor this is not the place for you. We, though, absolutely LOVED it! Reminded me of the classy restaurants of the 60's and 70's. If you prefer a noisy bistro where everyone is staring at their cellphone and you can't carry on a conversation this is not the place for you. This is a romantic restaurant. And LOVED the bar! Our steaks were done to perfection and service by Floyd was impeccable. "Dessert Flight" was on the house as we were celebrating a birthday. Outstanding restaurant with great food and prices for a good steak.
The food was very good and included several game options which are rarely seen. Our waitress was very personable and tried to provide good service. There were a couple of bobbles along the way. She forgot my sauce and I had to remind her to bring it. I won't say that the service was slow but we were definitely not rushed. All in all, it was a good dinner and a friendly atmosphere. We have always enjoyed the Ranchers Club and consider it a special place.
We are new to the Albuquerque area and are exploring various restaurants since we eat out at least 6 of 7 days. I am especially critical on steakhouses and find that many are over rated and slipping in food, service etc. The Ranchers Club fulfilled our every wish for excellent food, well prepared and well served, in an unhurried and very comfortable environment. We will be back and will let others know of our very positive experience.
I have always heard of the Rancher's Club but never went there until the other night. The waiter was fantastic, the drinks were very good and the steaks were great! I had the best rib eye in ABQ and my wife's Bison and Venison were tender and juicy. We usually do not get those cuts of meat because they are generally overcooked and tough. The price was no more than some of the other high end and specialty restaurants in town. We will definitely be going back!
