Rancher's Club of New Mexico Ratings and Reviews
Evening started out well with a drink at the bar. We were seated and waitress was very pleasant and helpful initially. As the evening continued however we saw less and less of her as she picked up more tables. Her lack of experience with handling multiple tables resulted in the evening lasting much longer than it should have. Do I have to pour my own wine at a 5-star restaurant?
This is not a place I would take kids unless it's a super special occasion and you should check the list for meals... I don't remember seeing any gauged towards kids or vegetarians. It is called ranchers club after all. Found their apps to be worth the money while their dinners a little over priced. Their drinks were def overpriced. THe ambiance is fantastic and the service was great! Def worth the time to try it out at least once.
The chef knows how to handle meat and seafood. Everything is gracious and special. They split salads with no "attitude" and are accommodating in every way. We do not usually spend this much money on meals, but for special occasions, this is a true gem. It was perfect for taking our adult children out for dinner.
When we arrived, we were ushered to a table - were not asked if we had reservations or if it was a special occasion. Sparkling wine was ordered by the name but the waitress insisted on the wine number from the menu. I gave her the wrong number. When she brought the wine I informed her it was the wrong wine and she told me to look at the menu, that was the number I gave her? uncouth the way it was handled. The wedge salad was very much like a mayonnaise dressing with almost no Gorgonzola. Scallop potatoes and veggies were excellent but my stake, a cowboy rib-eye, at best, was almost tasteless and a little tough. For a place that claims to be a Steak House, very disappointing. This is not my first visit as I have frequented the establishment for over 25 years. In general, we were most disappointed in the service by the wait staff which was very ordinary, more cafe like. We enjoyed the piano playing in the background and will probably try coming back once more, maybe. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. We were served with a nice dessert, complements of the house.
We were celebrating our tenth anniversary - we are not fancy people, but we were treated quite well nonetheless. My salmon was de-lish; the crab stuffing was real crab, not 'crab-with-a-K', which was good, because real crab was appropriate for the price tag. Our server, Ande, and her helper Jay were very good, we enjoyed our visit and want to go back next time we're in the city.
Solid steak and sides at a reasonable (reasonable for good steak) price. Decor is throwback to 70s which is somehow comforting- longevity is a testiment to quality . Never had a bad meal @ Ranchers club. Steak is cooked over wood but smokey taste compliments the quality meat and does not overwhelm it.
We never are disappointed at the Rancher's Club! We had an excellent waiter, Luis. He and his assistant took very good care of us. It was my 77th birthday and we felt very special the whole time. There were three things missing, however - no preparation of the caesar salad at the table, no peppercorn sauce for the steak and no dramatic uncovering of the main dishes, but these are small issues compared to the delicious meal. I had the ribeye and the wife had the scallops and they were outstanding! We will be back!
Very comfortable, enjoyable dining experience. Service was attentive, appropriate, and efficient. Portions were more than adequate and variety, preparation, of menu items excellent . Would highly recommend Rancher's Club for a "special occasion", celebration, or group meal
We made reservations for 5.30. We got there a few minutes early and asked the bartender if she was open. She was rude and disinterested so we went across the hall to the hotel's cantina for drinks.
We were seated at 5.30. Only one other table was occupied. We waited 20 minutes for our server to take our order and instead she waited on a table of "Portlandia" people for nearly 15 minutes, as though she had all the time in the world and no other tables. Then she went to a table that arrived after us. We got tired of waiting so we left.
