I'm a NM native so I'm very picky about my New Mexican food. The red and green chile were average with little flavor and the food was just middle of the road.

The tableside guacamole is amazing! The sweet corn cake is addicting! Best fish tacos I've ever had! Delicious drinks too!

Was staying at the Hotel Albuquerque in November and decided to have dinner here as the hotel offers a small discount to eat here when staying. The atmosphere of the restaurant, part of a local chain, was good in the off lobby restaurant. When arriving was empty except for a few people in the bar area. The chips and salsa, well this is again a taste thing but personally thought it was the best part of the meal and bought a jar of Garduno's salsa to bring home which i found in nearby Old Town. The food was beautiful in presentation but disappointing in flavor. Service was also simply average. This is rather corporate food overall and not as localized as i would have liked, there are so many fine restaurants in Old town i was disappointed to have not tried because of choosing this one. Again could be dependent on what your expectations are.

My wife, friends and I gathered at Garduno's for dinner during the New Mexico Bowl weekend and had a terrific experience. The service was punctual, the food was great, and the atmosphere was energetic with CSU and WSU fans packing the place. he price was very reasonable, too. We'd definitely would come back again when visiting Old Town.

Stopped by to watch a football game and loved the happy hour deals. We really enjoyed the enchiladas and posole. Ambiance and service were great.
