About Savoy Bar and Grill Albuquerque
Abundant and beautiful California Wine Country in the Northeast Heights. Welcome to “Savoy”! A sun-filled, unpretentious but sophisticated, wine-friendly restaurant. As you walk into the dramatic high-ceiling entryway, you are moved in all directions. To the East you have a frosted view of the tasting room, loaded with fresh flowers and walls of glass-encased wine. To the West you get a glimpse of the lounge bar leading to the vine-covered patio. Light, open and airy with butter-colored walls, dark wood and black & white photography of wine country all come together to create an elegant yet surprisingly comfortable atmosphere in the main dining room. The dark and contemporary edge to the room is offset during the day with an abundance of natural light from large windows and three strategically placed skylights. That oven will be our culinary focal point for the exhibition kitchen, where our guests will see and smell the citrus roasted duckling, the roasted platter of shellfish

The food during our visit to Savoy was excellent! We have visited many times in the last but this visit blew them all away. I don't know if they've employed a new chef, but everything was outstanding this time around.
The service was attentive, only a tiny bit slow towards the end when the server was overwhelmed.

We love to go to Savoy. All the staff are personable and knowledgeable about the menu. They always accommodate my special diet and the food is very good. The scallops were excellent and we love the chocolate mousse dessert.

I ordered the lamb with balsamic demi-glace, couscous tabbouleh and fried okra. The lamb was good when served but the sides were inedible. The couscous were extremely overcooked. It was a soggy heap of blandness, no tabbouleh flavor whatsoever. The fried okra was served whole and while it had a tasty cornmeal crust, the okra was nearly raw so one bite pulled the whole thing out of the crust. The demi-glace was reduced to the point of an overly thick glop of syrup. The waiter offered to change out my sides saying they'll keep the lamb warm. It came back cooked past the ordered temp. The new side of orzo pasta with mushrooms and green beans were just OK because there was absolutely no seasoning on it. Doesn't the chef taste what comes out of the kitchen? The only highlight of the meal were the oysters which I recommend and the service by our newly hired waiter. He was great!

Savoy is a dining standard in NE Albuquerque. On this occasion, the wait staff was unprofessional, poorly groomed and seemingly unfamiliar with their duties. The waiter assigned to our table appeared rushed, unfamiliar with the menu and disinterested in his duties and our dining experience. We were entirely disappointed with the experience.

Went for Mother's Day. Took my wife/mother/grandmother. We had reservations but had to wait for some reason (as 3 other groups that arrived after us were seated). Once seated, our waiter took 10 minutes to greet us and bring us water. My grandmothers steak was COLD, it was to be cooked well done. Not impressed and will not return.

This review is strictly based on their food and time it took to bring our order to the table.
We ordered Kobe New York strips from daily special, and rack of lamb and parmesan chicken.
Kobe beef supposed to be tender but felt like chewing rubber and their special sauce didn't complement meat at all. Too much sauce that dawned real taste of Kobe(?) beef.
Rack of lamb smell too much. I noticed not many places can prepare good rack of lamb so will not expect much from here also. But, their bean side dish was not cooked. I was chewing half cooked beans. So end up not eating at all.
We eat maybe few bites and had food to go doggy box. Wine and complementary bread was best part of the meal.
Ambience was nice, felt like I was back in one of restaurants at downtown LA. If you are here for drinks then it will definitely be one of good place to hang out in Albuquerque, but for food? I think I can get better tasting food at much more reasonable price at some other venues.
Delicious food, calm ambiance
We took my parents here for dinner. My mother is extremely picky and thoroughly enjoyed her meal. Service was perfect. Friendly and efficient yet calm. I had chicken and it was perfectly cooked. My mom had the seabass. My dad had the salmon and my boyfriend had a caprese salad along with the lamb. We've also eaten here several times on the patio or in the bar area. Food and drink have been consistently good. I particularly enjoy the patio in the summer.
I feel so lucky to have the Savoy Bar & Grill right in my backyard. I bring friends and family here all the time and it always becomes a favorite to them as well. It just doesn't get any better than this. You can really tell when the owners of a place love food, wine, and and great mixed drinks, and care about their diner's experience. There isn't a bad thing on the menu. When I say try it, you'll love it, I mean it wholeheartedly!
A gem during Resturant Week
We decided to dine here during Albuquerque's restaurant week and we very pleased with our decision. The 3 course fixed price meal was perfect. The servings were adequate, not too small, but not too large to be able to enjoy the included dessert too. The server was there when we needed her, but neither hovering nor inattentive. All in all we would recommend this restaurant and will go back again.
The Savoy is one of our favorites, however please:
I sometimes make a reservation at the Savoy for special occasion for me and my sweetheart.
In this case I spent $103 (including a twenty percent tip for good service). The prime rib was excellent. The pork special was excellent as well. So then, the meal being great, but then we noticed that plates for appetizores and other dishes, as consumed, were left behind on the table while we were consuming our main dish...table then was a little messy throughout the meal...something to look out for in terms of future waitress services. We love the Savoy!
Thanks and see you again,
Excellent food, lacking service.
We arrived at Savoy on time and were seated promptly. But from then on the service went downhill. I don't know if our waitress was overloaded, overworked, or what, but she rarely came by our table to check how we were doing, ask if we needed anything, ready to order,??? We had to flag her down for everything, and each course took between 30-45 minutes. I Don't know if this is normal but it seemed very excessive since we were there on a Tuesday night, not crowded, only a few other tables were occupied. Never a mention of sorry for the wait, it will be a few more minutes, nothing. Then since we were celebrating our anniversaries, the waitress mentioned that dessert was on the house but when the check came, we were charged. Since it took so long to get our check, we thought it prudent to just pay for it and not have to wait again for the check to be corrected. Disappointment to say the least. Not the 5 star experience we were hoping for. I also noticed that 2 gentlemen seated near us were complaining about the service, she was apologizing to them as we left.
Very Poor Service and Going Down Hill....
After requesting not to, our table of four was seated at one if their terrible banquette tables down in a gully with the table legs so spread out you can't get your feet flat. After a delay, our server came over apologizing about slow she was and then only talked to my wife. We finally got our meals after all the other tables who were seated 30 minutes after we were received theirs. We then received the same meaningless and worthless apology about being slow. The food was dry and almost tasteless and the plates very hot indicating that they must have sat in the warmer a long time. We have been to Savoy several times and even had a holiday event there. It has been slowly going downhill and I believe they have reached that destination. They obviously don't care about people who book through open table so don't bother. There are better options out there.
Our Anniversary Spot
We've been celebrating our Anniversary for the past few years at Savoy. It's our favorite place to go, we make a point of only going here once a year to keep it special, even though we could eat here everyday. They always adhere to my request of sitting us in the room with the fireplace, service is always awesome and unlike some restaurants in town they are consistent. I always order the tuna and my husband always gets the filet and it always tastes the way we remember it. Thank you once again for making our experience at your restaurant awesome. We'll see you again next year.
A wonderful find!!
We had an outstanding experience. As owners of a casual dinning restaurant with the same quality and atmosphere as the Savoy's, we were very pleasantly surprised. The food was of the highest quality, Eric our server went out of his way to take outstanding care of us during our dining experience. The whole staff was very warm and friendly. What a great experience
Four of us went to Savoy for a special occasion. Eric, our waiter, was very helpful. One member of our party is a vegetarian and Eric made suggestions and communicated with the Chef to ensure the satisifaction of our party's vegetarian. We non-vegetarians enjoyed the succulent prime rib which was slow-cooked nice and rare the way we like it. Plus, we were able to substitue butternut squash with kale for the potatoes (delicious!). The restuarant was pretty quiet with nice accoustics. The wine list was extensive and, once again, Eric made great suggestions. We'll be returning in the near future - special occasion or not!
