We visited the Cooperage last Saturday. We were seated immediately and the waiter was quick to arrive. The soup and salad bar were top notch as they were the previous times we ate there. My complaint was my entree, I ordered the barbecue beef bits. The meat was tough and chewy. The barbecue sauce had way too much vinegar, I... More

This is a nice place for a romantic dinner. My husband and I went on Valentine's Day and go back whenever we can. The salad bar has a nice selection and the steaks are good.

The restaurant brags about its salad bar. But look: no labels on the soups or any of the other mystery dishes, wilted spinach, oil floating on top of the soup, looked like leftover salad bar vegetables in one of the soups, something bright yellow and chopped with no distinguishing flavor at all - when I asked, it was crab salad...

First time back in Albuquerque in 20 years and The Cooperage filled the bill with a variety of selections to include NM dishes. I enjoyed the green chili stew that was on the salad-soup bar and had an entree of enchiladas. My companion had prime rib quesadillas which were excellent. Staff is very attentive and pricing is well within expectations... More

Visited for dinner with family. Made reservations & were given a cozy room all by ourselves even though there were only 9 of us. Service was excellent. Food was excellent.

The salad bar was excellent but Prime Rib was ok. Music by a large band was pretty good except for a very long warm up and testing. I liked the cozy atmosphere and will probably try it again.

I kept driving by this restaurant as we went to the Balloon Park. It looked like a very nice place to eat...little bit higher dollar than we normally choose. It is beautiful and the service was great. Friendly, responsive, very professional. The salad bar was a delight. There were a lot of things from which to choose and it was... More

For many years when visiting Albuquerque we have enjoyed a trip to The Cooperage for the prime rib and large salad bar. This year the soup/salad bar was as as good as always, but the prime rib lacked the flavor that we expected. Also, the portion seemed to be smaller than the size we ordered. Our server was very good,... More

Arrived for dinner at 5pm, (we had made reservations), we had to wait a while to be seated even though they were not busy. Waited too long to have our order taken, salad bar and soup were quite good, but dinner was not. I had ordered the large prime rib because I like my prime rib thick, for $32 this... More

Love eating here when we visit! The soup and salad bar is fabulous! Appreciate that they take reservations. Our waiter was ok. Ordered the prime rib, but was terribly disappointed in the thickness of the meat. PR should be about 1" in thickness, ours was about the thickness of your iPhone. Meat was cooked perfectly. Would have given 5 stars,... More
