Enjoyed the whole idea of speakeasy. Came for a birthday and everyone enjoyed the experience and food.
The perfect place for that special occasion or just if you want to eat fine food. Well worth it. We're the mob bosses meet up and the food is to die for.
Wait staff were very attenuative and willing to answer questions about the menu. Kathleen was especially good and we enjoyed our meal.
Fantastic as usual. WE took a set of friends who have never been and they were thrilled with the service and quality of food. Always one of my favorite places to dine.
From our arrival to our departure we were entertained. The food was on point. The staff was professional and perfectly helpful. We enjoyed the lamb and prime rib. Delicious and prepared to our liking. The au jus sauce brought the flavor of my meal to a 10.
Thank you, we enjoyed our 3rd anniversary immensely.
Service, food and drinks are all excellent! I would defiantly go back again and again.
This was such a great night! Fun place, awesome enthusiastic waitstaff and wonderful food brought the night to life!
Best dining in Albuquerque. both The food and mood were perfect.
Excellent food and service
We were in town for a large national track meet, we like to find local restaurants that we do not have in Colorado. This fit the bill perfect! Was a blast and food was excellent!
We are from Austin, TX and came to celebrate our anniversary in Albuquerque. We received Vernon’s as a recommendation from my best friend and it was perfect for the occasion! We had never been to a speakeasy and the ambiance was definitely a unique experience. The staff was courtesy and the food was absolutely delicious! We got the filet mignon and the black and blue NY strip, both cooked perfection. We went on a Thursday and they had a very nicest pianist playing throughout our dinner. We definitely recommend Vernon’s for any special occasion!
Vernon's promotes itself as a roaring 20's prohibition era speakeasy. To gain entrance one has to provide a password at the door and "claim" not to be the police. This make the experience worth it. Add to that the amazing handcrafted drinks. The Manhattan and Old Fashioned were outstanding. The steaks, were good, done to order, but nothing outstanding. The prices, though are commensurate for steakhouses. The ambience was better than Ruth's Chris. We went for a birthday event and a complementary apple crisp was given to the birthday girl, which was very nice. We will go again.
All of the steaks are absolutely delicious and so tender. Wonderful meal and tasty desserts. We had a great, fun time.
I like going there. Especially when I feel having a nice romantic dinner.
Food and service were as good as we expected. Great steaks. We will return.
Sean was an excellent server. Food and wine were outstanding and very generous.
Vernons has always been our favorite when we are in the mood for a good steak. By far the best around in the Duke City. If you have not been hear to eat be amazed by the service and food.
1st time to Vernons. It was a great experience. Our Server Shawn was amazing. He was very very knowledgeable about the menu, food preparation, drinks etc. Food was prepared to perfection. Will return and will definitely let people know my experience.
Had a great time. The food was great the service was outstanding. Can describe how good the brandied cherries went with the chocolate desert. Fantastic!
It was a very Fantastic dining experience. Great atmosphere. Food was delicious. Service was awesome....will definitely dine there again on our next special occasion.
Made my 75th birthday a fabulous dining experience. Colby was our waiter and his personality and service were excellent!
A very fun place to go and very good food.
Most everything was great. However my husbands steak was full of gristle and he had a very hard time cutting and chewing it. He didn’t want to say anything but it was a very expensive evening sort of ruined by his steak. However, mine was delicious. I don’t think that we will ever come back. Too expensive as well. By the time was paid the waitress and piano player it cost us $149.00 plus gas from Santa Fe. I did like the speakeasy theme. The guy at the door was hilarious and made it fun.
Food was very good, service excellent, staff friendly and helpful.
Will be back
The food and the service were amazing! We definitely had a wonderful experience and will return again for a special occasion.
Our server Sean was the greatest. He was very attentive and went out of his way to give us a tour. We will request him every time we dine at Vernon's. The food and drinks were exceptional.
Wonderful evening, celebrating my husbands birthday.
Ambiance was great. Waiter was on his game at all times. My wife's steak was good, my prim rib was undercooked and tasted like rubber. The rest of the meal was on spot including the French onion soup.
I loved the 40s vibe of this restaurant. Very quiet and the staff was incredible! Great drinks and even better food. I definitely recommend this restaurant; whether for a special occasion or just a nice night out on the town.
It was amazing. We went for the first time for our anniversary and loved it.
Excellent food & wine. Sterling our server was great. Calvin the pianist entertained us. Thank u
This was our first visit, but it won't be our last! I appreciated the email and call before our reservation and the same contact the day after. The service was attentive but not obtrusive, and it was nice to not be interrupted and checked up on constantly. The bread was a little slow to arrive, and the server didn't know whether the wild rice was all wild rice or a mixture of wild and white (she said it was the former; it was the latter), but those are the only things I can criticize. The filets were delicious, as were the sauces. We practically licked our plates. It's pricey, so it is great for a special occasion.
Excellent Service! Delicious Food! Great Place for any Occasion!
Vernon's speakeasy is a quaint, local restaurant that provides a unique ambiance with excellent service. The food is very good, but not easy on the wallet. All things considered, I will frequent this establishment as often as I can.
Superb! Best restaurant in New Mexico! My husband and I went to Vernon’s for a date night and we were very impressed. The food, cocktails and service were outstanding. We will be back soon! Thanks Vernon’s for a wonderful evening.
I went on a date night with my husband and the entire experience at Vernon's Speakeasy was lovely! Vernon's has tremendous service, delicious food, and amazing cocktails. Our new favorite restaurant. We look forward to our next visit. Well worth every penny!
We had great great service but the food was disappointing. Prime rib was an odd cut and a weird mix of very tough on the she’s but full of inedible grissle and fat that usually melts in your mouth. The dirty mashed potatoes had a very off flavor. The baked potato and toppings were tasty and the apple dessert they brought us for our anniversary was the best bite of the night!!
Service was disappointing, we expected much more for our anniversary evening. We had incredibly high hopes, Vernon's was recommended to us by a friend. I understand it is unfair to be hyper critical, being that working in the service industry is a very demanding job. Mistakes are fine, but what matters is how you recover and make it right. We felt that we were not given genuine hospitality. There are many other great places to dine and spend your hard earned money.
great food service and ambiance, - dress code could be intimidating to some folks that just want to relax.
