About Savoy Bar and Grill Albuquerque
Albuquerque, NM 87111
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

Savoy Bar and Grill Albuquerque Ratings and Reviews
Food was good, but the portions were too ...
Food was good, but the portions were too large for a "fine-dining" establishment. The vegetable sides included with our dishes were much too large, especially when sides are listed separately on the menu. Wait staff was excellent, steak and seafood was seasoned well. Would recommend for another meal and return for dinner, but the entree portion sizes should be kept in mind when you think about an appetizer and dessert.

The service at Savoy is always excellent and you are bound to "I want to try that!" when you see the eclectic menu choices. The chef(s) at Savoy craft meals that allow each portion to complement the whole. The atmosphere is elegant, but not too stuffy. Highly recommended!

The restaurant was not at all busy the evening three of us had dinner, so conversation was easy. The food was very good, but our waiter never brought one salad that was ordered. Not a problem, as the portions were very generous. Three of us happily split one wedge salad

I reserved a table for 4 on Christmas Eve. I asked for a more quiet section since 1 of our party is hard of hearing. We had prompt access to our table which was located in a very good area of the restaurant. It was quiet at 1st, but became louder which was expected on Christmas Eve. The food was excellent, but a little pricey. We have gone 3 Christmas Eves now with the same friends and I'm sure will continue to do so.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. The only reason for not giving this visit five stars is that for the second visit in a row, they overcooked one of our guests steaks. She has gone there frequently and always orders the steak the same way. I imagine they will correct this soon, because it is a great restaurant.

Came here for my birthday and it was great! The only problem we had that wasn't a huge deal was that we had to wait even though we had reservations for 8. Apparently others who had reservations showed up late so it pushed everything back. We had to wait for about 30 minutes before being sat. Like I said, it wasn't a big deal but that's why I gave one less star. Our waitress was awesome and the food was delicious! I got the filet and it was cooked perfectly.

The server was very attentive and offered some good suggestions. I had the salmon build a bowl and it was excellent. One of my friends had the tuna build a bowl and the other had the amazing squash bisque and prime rib sandwich. The restaurant was decorated nicely for Christmas. Savoy will certainly be on my list of favorites.

Just was not pleased overall, mainly the food. Mashed potatoes were dry and hard. Meat was just bad, especially for the price. We get better quality food for the price, which is even cheaper, at BJ's. We'll just stick with that.

We were underwhelmed by the food quality this evening. My garlic mashed potatoes were watery and bland and my petite filet was flavorless. My husband had the prime rib which was warm, not hot as it should have been. The creme brûlée was the best part of the meal. We have eaten here in the past and were saddened by the decline in quality this meal suggested. Hopefully it was an atypical night.
I believe this is the best place to dine ...
I believe this is the best place to dine in Albuquerque. It is always nice inside. They have a upscale bar, a sports type bar, outside dining with heaters, inside rooms to rent and upscale dining. The food is always good, the menu changes but they keep their best options on new menus. The staff is obviously trained. If you are in Abq you probably will do a meal for the sake of eating chile. Then you should go here for any other reason.

Savoy is a classy, but unpretentious place, with good food and nice decor. The ceasar was authentic and tasty and the pear salad was nice. The small filet was small, but cooked to perfection and quite tender. And the swordfish was nicely done. A peach kir made with real peach (rather than peach liquor) was fresh and interesting. Service was attentive, once we were discovered, and not obtrusive. Good entrees for two, with salads, one drink, coffee and one desert, for just under $100 makes this a reasonable value for better dining in Albuquerque.

The food and service were great, but the lighting was too low, the sun was setting and the restaurant inside looked like it was closed, there was definitely more need of light. After a while the lights went on and it looked much better.

We met friends for dinner. Discuss about goat cheese was actually pleasant. We ordered and were rewarded for our decision. Excellent choices for us were the Ahi Tuna with Wasabi potatoes. This dish was layered with a lightly salted, brazed mushroom and laced with a ginger-bound micro greens. The surprise as just enough sauce to keep your palate engaged with every bite. Oh yeah, our friends had the pork loin. They said it was good too. But back to our Seared Tuna...

Arriving from out of town, looking for a local non-chain location, and based on good on-line reviews, I chose Savoy for a business dinner on a Monday evening - and was unfortunately and sadly very disappointed with my choice. While I had asked for a quiet table in our reservation to accommodate a guest with hearing issues (anticipating that often places can be noisy), when we arrived, the restaurant was largely empty (with no noise issues), but the host still attempted to seat us at a cramped table in a far corner. I had to ask for an alternate location near a window. The food was subpar, especially for the price level. Our server was clearly new, didn't understand drink orders and did not have a clear understanding of the nightly specials. The bread served before dinner was so hard and dry, I would have guessed it was left from a prior day. One of our guests commented that he was afraid he was going to break a tooth on it! Even with the largely empty restaurant, it took an excessively long time for our entrees to arrive after soup/salad, and our server was nowhere to be seen during the wait. When the food finally arrived, my boss's prime rib was served cold - when we said something they "reheated" it, which meant it was returned well done (and no concession was offered for the error). (I will say they did offer to re-do it, but given how long it took to get our food to start with, my boss did not want to be eating alone!) The sauce served on the plate with my filet was so thick and strongly flavored that it was somewhat off-putting rather than complementing the steak. While I appreciate that the green beans were not overcooked, they were so under-cooked that they were essentially raw. I will say that both my filet and my boss's prime rib were very tender and flavorful, and my filet was cooked as requested. Mashed potatoes were also delicious. Overall a mediocre meal, that I was pretty embarrassed for selecting as a business meal location.

We dine here often, but this meal was particularly good - service by Stephanie was stellar - she was so pleasant, and she knew the food and drink selections well; the food was excellent, inventive, well-prepared and presented; Stephanie accommodated my own personal off-menu dessert request with enthusiasm. Overall a great evening, with great food, in an elegant but not stuffy setting.

Savoy has been at the very top of our list for special occasions because of predictably excellent steaks, service, and value. This time it disappointed (a very quiet Monday eventing). The bordelaise steak was slow in coming - chef chose to prepare it twice to get it correct as medium rare. The meat itself was excellent, but the sauce un-edibly heavy and strong and slathered in excess, to the point of having to be scraped aside and dammed back behind the potatoes to preserve the rest of the meal.

Had heard a lot of good things about Savoy but had never been. On Saturday night they have live music early and lots of bars for beverage service. We ate dinner in the restaurant but could have easily ordered off the bar menu and enjoyed more nightlife. The food and service was excellent and we enjoyed the atmosphere. Great for date night and reasonably priced. I would give it 4 to 5 stars.

Food was good - not cheap but worth it. Don't order the Stovetop Clam Bake. All the ingredients are cooked properly but the dish does not work together. They have little mounds of guacamole floating in seafood broth; the andouille sausage is good quality but no flavor. The service was great. The space was loud, though, so not a place I'd go again for a romantic date.

Took a friend out for dinner and we all had a great meal. The salmon special was so well cooked and the prime rib was great. Estevan is a wonderful server and pointed up to good choices on both the specials and the wine. will be back.

Nice and quiet if you aren't in the bar or on the patio. Excellent food and service! Leisurely dining; e.g., entrée doesn't appear before you have finished your salad. Servers attentive, but not hovering. Limited menu, but something on it for anyone. Excellent wine list.

We went to Savoy to celebrate my retirement and birthday with just a party of four. I had the filet mignon and it was perfectly cooked, presented in a tempting and attractive manner, and just enough to satisfy. Service was great ., and, most of all, the tables were spaced in such a way that even in the main dining room we felt private. I love the spacious feel and the quiet elegance without feeling intimidated. It is pricey.

One of our favorite restaurants for celebrating special occasions or just for a great meal anytime. The food is always excellent, the wine menu very good and the service is outstanding!
They have always accommodated special food sensitivity requests like GF.
