Vernon's Speakeasy Ratings and Reviews
My only mild complaint was the light level, which is typical for this type of restaurant, in that it was a little too dim for me to read the menu easily (but then, I'm older and carry a pocket flashlight for that reason). The food, service, and atmosphere were excellent. I will be returning, lots of items to explore on the menu.
I really did love our time there. It was our 2 year anniversary and they did something nice for us such as giving us free dessert. The only thing that I did not like was how long everything took to come to us. We spent 2 hours there and most of it was waiting for food. when the food did come it was amazing but I had just wished we got our food faster
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Vernon's. It was a little hard to find...
what Speakeasy is not, but we remembered the password! The entrance performance was
fun and the actor believable. The waiter was very professional and the food was excellent.
If you have the funds to spend, it is worth the effort.
First time there after several years of thinking it was too fancy for my tastes. I couldn't have been more wrong. The atmosphere was very cozy and intimate, great for a romantic evening (anniversary in our case). The service was world class and Gabriel, our waiter, was the best server in at least a dozen countries. He helped me make my dinner choices by listening, offering advice and with a thorough knowledge of the menu and the food's compatibility with my cocktail from the bar. The food is amazing and the talented singer/player at the piano bar was soothing while still engaging. Vernon's is definitely upscale and not inexpensive but the combination of food and service makes it a must at least once in one's lifetime. There was an issue with a loud table nearby. Vernon's staff and management took care of the issue making the experience highly satisfactory. I wholeheartedly recommend.
As always the experience was great, we had someone in our party who never had dined at Vernon's. Needless to say he was blown away with the entry, the food the service and of course the ambience. I highly recommend it to anyone who has never gone.
Very Pricey But worth every penny, No question a place for special occasions unless your wealthy. Went for my Anniversary/Birthday and it was top notch. They definitely make sure you get your moneys worth because they know your paying top dollar. I loved it and will go back again when the occasion calls. I was blown away!
Best dining experience we have ever had! It was fun going through the secret passageways and having a password. Vernon's served up the best steak I ever had. Gabe was our server and he was awesome. I could not rate a place any higher than this!
The whole Speakeasy thing was a bit hokey. Steaks were delicious but atmosphere is blah. Waiter uphold us a $70 steak without divulging the price. They did take $20 off when I complained and I did get a delicious complimentary birthday dessert. Still wouldn't recommend.
The food was really wonderful! The service was on point. They really know how to pamper! It was a little pricey but it was fun and the food was so, so good! I especially loved the asparagus and the scallops. My mother especially liked the piano player.
This place was AMAZING! Something my girlfriend and I had been wanting to try and it was absolutely perfect! Our waiter was great and knowledgeable and the food was fantastic. I would recommend to anyone wanting to take their loved one out for a romantic dinner.
I went for my birthday & I couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate. The food was absolutely amazing! I had the filet mignon with cream spinach, tender, juicy and cooked to perfection. The prime rib, lobster & NY strip were all mouth-watering as well & for dessert I had a special treat from the chef, complete with birthday candle! Vernon's far exceeded my expectations. We all had a lovely night & look forward to our next visit to try more delicious dishes!
This was our first visit and it definitely met our expectations! Fun experience and food was fresh and delicious. Drinks were very good as well. Shawn, our waiter, was so friendly and helpful. Perfect place for a date night or special occasion.
Service was attentive, friendly, respectful and well organized. The folks working there clearly seem to love their jobs. We were pleasantly surprised that the side dishes, especially and including the obviously fresh, seasonal vegetables, were very well prepared. A lot of times at "steak" type restaurants they really neglect or over-cook the veggies. By the way: that was, hands-down, the best lobster and filet my husband and I have ever eaten. Awesome atmosphere and decor. Would definitely go back.
Everything was AMAZING! One problem was that it was supposed to be a quiet ambience but there was a party of 5 by us that was extremely loud. I did not want to cause a scene and hoped the waitress would say something. Neither happened. Aside from that it was great.
The restaurant resident artist and notable wine expert took care of us. His extensive knowledge and care was extensive. We dine often and are very impressed with the quality of the food, atmosphere, and service. We enjoyed the scallops, crab cakes, and filet mignon. Our wine was high end and excellent. We just love Vernons.
We really loved Vernon's. We came to Albuquerque for a random visit and found this. We loved the entry, the meal, the atmosphere, the drinks. The steaks were perfect, the service was amazing. There were multiple staff providing service. The fireplace was romantic, the dining area was elegant and low lit. We didn't get to enjoy the piano area but we would definitely go back! They even called us to ask if we had a good evening the next day.
We had never been to Vernon's before and found ourselves charmed by the speakeasy theme. It makes the restaurant more of an experience. The food was not adventurous but was excellent upscale steakhouse fare. We were there for a special occasion, and found that a free dessert was part of our evening. Be prepared to spend some money.
Coffee was cold when brought to the table, also two Irish coffees were also cold. Price for a half order of scallops to go with prime rib dinner was expensive. Service was not always good, did not get wine poured when glasses got low. While some of the prime rib was good, some parts were chewy. Based on past dinners, this time was not as good. Wednesday was a slow night - only a few tables had customers - so service should have been better? Regrettably it seems that the restaurant may be slipping.
