OUTSTANDING GEM. Outstanding little family owned gem. Great atmosphere, Superb food and inexpensive. Average dinner is around $10. Fast service - don't miss this fantastic eatery!
Unreliable for large group reservations.
Cervantes offers an excellent deal in their private dining room but cannot be relied upon to honor reservations. I reserved the private room for a dinner board meeting a week in advance and confirmed it the day of the event. We arrived at the restaurant to find that we had been pre-empted by a larger group. We were offered an open table instead: unsatisfactory for a business meeting. As a compromise, the restaurant set up an extra table in the private room, but we had to cut our meeting short when the larger group arrived.
Cervantes has been one of my favorite restaurants for casual dining, but booking their private dining room is risky.
great atmosphere, above average food. We've been here a couple times. The layout of this place, decor, style, etc. is great. The food was pretty good but not really great. Maybe I havent tried the right thing. But for the money I wasnt really impressed. I can find food just as tasty elsewhere in town while spending less money. But if its atmosphere your looking for to put you over the top with a date or something you could do a lot worse.
Very judgemental service!!. The lighting was good but as we were seated the waiter switched with another waiter. Wondering why, but ignoring the situation, the older waiter passed by whispering hater comments. I will never eat here or recommend others to eat here if you dont look like the "average joe" .
Order the rellenos, again, and again!.
Cerantes has the finest chile rellenos and New Mexico red chile I have ever tasted.
While the spicing is authentically New Mexico, its menu selections and decor are decidedly Spanish. It is an elegant old-style eatery, reminiscent of the steak houses of the '50s and 60s, however, when I asked if there was a dress code, the hostess laughed out loud and said, "Are you kidding? This is Albuquerque."
