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

Savoy Bar and Grill Albuquerque Ratings and Reviews

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.

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!
