Expensive, and portions got smaller during pandemic. Our 15-year favorite Fondeaux can no longer fill the bread it comes with. Overall food still tastes good as before. But this time one of the rice dishes we had was just swimming in oil or melted butter. And there is one long-time flaw: some dishes are extremely salty to the point that salt burns your mouth. Overall, considering price hike and portions drop it just does not satisfy like it used to. This is the second disappointing visit here in a row, and I won't be voting to come here for special occasions any more.

Filet Mignon was to die for! Vanilla Cheesecake was the best I've had anywhere!


Stopped for lunch and was seated right away on the patio (by request). Lovely outdoor seating with plants and a small waterfall. Food came quickly and service was excellent. Noticed plenty of servers just waiting for their tables to be filled. Obviously a testament to a great work environment if the manager is able to hire so many people. I had the crab cake appetizer, which was very tasty, except I felt it was a little on the salty side, which may have been the capers. My companion had the soft shell crab po’boy and he said it was very good. My salad was fresh and was very good as well. I would definitely eat there again if I was in the area.


Why is this place so pricey? No reason.....not a whole lot better than Red Lobster? 89.95 for crab legs?

Awesome bar atmosphere & superior chilled martini. Excellent service and delicious food. It’s a very busy bar & location servicing a diverse crowd. Get there early for happy hour or dining at the bar.


The restaurant was not full, and some tables were vacant when we came in. We were told that this was because of the lack of servers. So we had lunch at the bar, but shortly into the lunch they came to inform us that a table was available if we wanted to switch. We thought that it was a nice gesture, but decided to stay at the bar. We had the calamari appetizer - we rate this as the best calamari we have ever had in New Mexico! The main dishes, including Mixed Seafood Grill were also excellent. Portions were large and very flavorful. It was most enjoyable, enough for me to give it a rare 5-star review!

Great food with service to match! We were on a road trip and just happened to stop here for lunch. So happy we did!

The food was very good I got a naked salmon. It was a little salty, however, the flavors blended together perfectly. On the other hand, our waitress made some very strange comments about me finishing my food that made me feel very awkward.


This is our new favorite seafood place! The food was cooked to absolute perfection. It was so decadent and amazing. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars. Our wait staff was super friendly and attentive. Thank you Crystal and Kyrstin for an amazing experience ❤

Place was not busy, staff were fantastic, our server was training a new person, and he was very thorough is his teaching, as a former server I appreciated that. The food was sub-par, it came out cold, despite it not being busy. Restaurant was clean, did a good job with covid restrictions.

This place has a great atmosphere and friendly employees. I recommend for great seafood in Albuquerque since there are many. It's easy to find and worth the price
