the worst food I have ever eaten

The tram is great.. but please do not waste a penny at the high finance. The worst meal I have ever had and a HUGE waste of money. The food was either frozen and reheated, soup out of a can. And all served cold. 30.00 for a disgusting steak. The resterant is so dirty, food all over menus and dead flies. The bathroom reeked.. PLEASE PLEASE do not go!!!

Horrible service, decent food

Specifically made a reservation for a sunset dining experience and arrived on time but then waited half an hour in the bar unable to see the view before we were given a table. The host had a very snobby attitude and the table we were seated at had a large beam obstructing the view of the sunset. We had to get up and go outside to view the sunset. The server lacked hospitality skills and overlooked the fact that we had no drinks, failed to tell us about the items on the menu they were out of (including the prime rib which was our first choice) and didn't refill our glasses in a timely manner. Parties of 2 are seated on inner ring away from the window. Would recommend a party of 4 for optimal view. The food was pretty good although a little pricey which was to be expected.



It's the view

The reason to go here is for the tram ride and then the view from the top. The food is good, but nothing special. Prices are on the high side.

decent food, worst service

First the good, great views (if you're into landscape photo it's got some great opportunities), neat tram ride, and the food was pretty decent. The bad, possibly one of the worst wait staffs I've experienced for a place that charges 20-30 dollars a plate. Very unprofessional wait staff, ours was a kid still in college who I think was on his very first job in a restaurant. Taking away unfinished salads so he could make room for entrees, not even filling up water glasses, not taking away empty cocktail glasses, lifting chairs over guests while they were eating, etc. Unless you're into the view and can overlook horrible service, this is neat place to go to.

Tourist Trap

I don't see how anyone can expect good food from such a touristy place. People will come anyway, so I'm not surprised that the food tastes prefab, reheated, and just awful. Face it, this is basically the only place to eat on the mountain, so what is their incentive to actually serve great food? On the plus side, the service and beer were good.

View is worth everything!

Great restaurant and the best way to see Albuquerque and the rest of the state pretty much. Great place to take out of town family and the food is awesome. Very good value for what you get to see and do, nothing like it. Once you are up at the top, you can take your time and look all over Albuquerque and the other side of the mountain, take pictures, etc. - you don't have to eat right away. Anywhere else they would charge much more for this type of restaurant and view, so I consider it a great deal.

Also great for parties and events - we held my in-laws 25th wedding anniversary there and they treated us like royalty. All the staff were very accomadating and helpful and the food was dynamite. We were a tad crowded and packed in, but after a few drinks we didn't mind.

One of the few places we will always return to - tho the food is not quite as special as it used to be. For the price, an excellent value. Service and seating always pleasant, cooperative. SIT IN THE D RING - best view.

OK, but not great

Unless they've seriously upgraded their food, all you pay for here is the view, which by the way is fabulous. The food is over-priced and over-rated, and there are so many other better choices. My advice? Eat elsewhere, and have a sunset cocktail at this place. The sunset + drink ambiance is the best.

Nice, but not worth the $$

There is indeed a great view from the restaurant, which makes it pretty romantic. The staff was friendly and helpful, but the dishes were unremarkable, especially for how expensive they were. Nice for a special occasion, but too expensive for everyday eating out.

Great sunset

Very good service and great wine selection, with the sun set in the background makes a great date night start of a wonderful evening for Albuquerque.
