My wife and I had an excellent evening. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. It was our first time dining there. We had heard a lot about The restaurant prior and they did not disappoint. The atmosphere was the best part.

The service was beyond excellent, food was fantastic. We went with the servers recommendation which was the very best choice. When it came to dessert they were out of the speciality, but when our dessert arrived they (4 people combined) recreated a fabulous cheesecake dessert, which was to die for!!!!! This place came highly recommended and did not disappoint!

We went to Vernon's Speakeasy for our 5th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful experience. We were early, so we hung out at the bar and were presented with a large drink list. We were seated at the exact time, and our waiter had extensive knowledge on his wines and spirits. He promised to cater to our hearts desire on food and drink and he delivered beautifully.

Overall great experience! The food was great and the service/atmosphere was beyond what we expected! Everything that we ordered was excellent, can't wait to go back. The only problem that we had it was very dim, hard to read the menu.

Fabulous dining experience! The service team was exceptional with our drinks never empty, our table always clean, and never interrupted during our conversation. The food was elegant, prepared to perfection, and absolutely delicious. All the while surrounded by the exceptional pianist eloquently playing the keys to our ears delight.

We love Vernon's and come often. This time was for my grandmother's 87 birthday dinner and was a huge success. I don't remember our servers name but a special thanks to him for his patience and assistance with her as she couldn't make a decision on what to order with her health restrictions. We will be back soon for another delicious steak dinner!

Me and my girlfriend went here for her birthday. We had an amazing experience! That food was awesome! We usually like to go to Ruth's Chris or Marcello's for special occasions. The food at Vernon's was way better! At the other places they never cook my girlfriends steak perfectly rare, Vernon's did! Also we ordered the same amount of food at Vernon's that we usually do at the other restaurants and it was cheaper. I would highly recommend this place for special occasions and dates. We will be come back asap!

Once you are granted permission to enter, the atmosphere and service are outstanding. The food, however, was just average. While the duck confit taco appetizer was both interesting and tasty, the prime rib was well below par, the salmon average, and mushroom side cheap and basic. The wedge salad was not the traditional one with roquefort chunks and bacon atop iceberg lettuce, unfortunately for me who just wanted a traditional steak house meal. All in all, a disappointment, but fun enough.

A bit hard to find, as there is no sign. Some people in the parking lot showed us where the door was. The menu was a bit hard to read in the very dim light, but the service and food was excellent. This is an expensive restaurant, so be prepared.

Fun from the moment you knock on the door! We had a friend visit from out of town and took him for desserts and drinks. Loved the tiramisu but did not care for the chocolate cake option - was too gooey - like uncooked cake. Our table ordered a Manhattan and was very pleased, a spiced mango mojito that was pleasant, and a gin & tonic which was rather standard. Nice environment. The painted walls are neat. The art is not impressive. The lighting is quite dim. The prices are steep but it's more a place to go on an occasion, so expect to pay more for the ambiance and experience. Great/considerate service. Clean bathrooms. Good music. Clean tables and silverware. Would like to return on a date night to try their food. Hoping they have vegetarian options. Overall, would recommend. Not quite a speakeasy - been to a better more authentic and fun speakeasy, but this is great as an ABQ upscale restaurant where you do not need to worry about riff-raff.

Best birthday celebration ever! Of the five in the party, no one had been to Vernon's Speakeasy.
Well, we know about it now and we plan on coming back soon. We didn't know what exactly to expect, but we soon found out. We had the best food, drinks, service and ambiance we had not even thought would exist in a strip mall. It was fantastic evening and a fantastic way to celebrate our friend's birthday.

They did not honor the reservation time we selected through OpenTable. They told us that "OpenTable does not appreciate the restaurants reservation schedule" so we had to wait to be seated until 40 minutes after the reservation time we selected.

Our server and sommelier, Gabe was outstanding. He imparted his knowledge of wines to pair beautifully with our entrees. The food was abundant and perfectly prepared. Gabe made the dining experience fabulous! Highly recommend this establishment!

Vernon's Speakeasy is consistently top notch. The service is some of the best you'll experience. The food is excellent and the piano music is unique in Albuquerque. The age dried ribeye is the best we've ever had. A shame it available during our 2nd visit, but we learned that it might be necessary to pre-order.

It truly is a speakeasy. Little hard to find. Hilarious getting past the door "guard" but once you're in the food was top notch. Great servers. We were there on a night with a live piano player and he was great too. Good atmosphere all around.
