We had a dinner with my in-laws who were pretty high maintenance. I just wanted to express my gratitude to Sabrina, our server, who was so gracious and caring that I would give her The Best Server Ever award. She listened, and smiled, and was very respectful of the senior couple's requests. Sabrina made us feel welcome and special, despite... More

This is the best seafood in Albuquerque. The fish is always very fresh and cooked perfect. The service was amazing. A great surprise in a city where great seafood is very hard to fine. The "endless salad bowl" is always a plus and deserts are awesome! My daughter and I are "gluten free, egg free, dairy free" and it was... More

We went to eat on Sunday in the middle of the afternoon. It wasn't busy at all, but the service was slow. The waiter was very pleasant but stretched too much. I suspect he had tables in the bar where we sat and also in the dining room on the other side. The music was too loud. Overall, the food... More

Last visit they were out of Clams - this visit the Clams were FRESH, and delicious! We also ordered the evening special "spicy Oysters " &&& they were perfect! Hot, FRESH and spicy!... More

We arrived about 630p on a Thursday and requested a table for five. The wait was about 10-15 min not bad for the time. When we were seated our waitress (Shannon?) brought water and then warm bread in a very timely and professional manner. She went over the menu with us, was very patient answering some questions and then took... More

This has been our "go to" seafood place in Albuquerque (sea food in ABQ!?) for months. We have had great visits for their happy hour many times - last night we met friends for an early dinner. Place (bar area) was about 1/2 full, we took a table near the fire place & settled in for a relaxing evening- we... More

We were passing through Albuquerque on the way to Santa Fe. It was a Tuesday night, my son and daughter both had the soup of the day which was sirloin and green Chilean soup which was savory and tasty. The shrimp scampi was excellent. It was actually the Australian lobster tail that brought us in. It was done to perfection.... More
