    We went to Vara for a "girl's evening out" and it was wonderful. Our waitress Tanya, answered all of our questions and was very attentive. The tapas were excellent and the wine flight was great. We will definitely return!!

    My husband is a French snob when it comes to wine and VARA is by far his favorite wine and spirits in New Mexico! We also love the Spanish tapas menu, especially the papas bravas and the "pan con tomate". Such a sophisticated restaurant yet the staff are approachable, friendly and efficient. I love having a wine flight with lunch/dinner!

    Go here to taste wine and drink with friends. Don’t bother with the tapas. The evening was cold and we never warmed up during our dinner the day after Thanksgiving. I expected to feel cold, as I remembered the concrete floors, the cement and glass walls and the high industrial ceilings. So I dressed warmly. The service was attentive and fairly competent if inexperienced. That is also what I expected in post covid Albuquerque. We had two wine flights which were excellent and enlightening. One whiskey drink using their artisanal spirits was also enjoyable. I had no idea until one of the staff informed us that Vara has no kitchen. That changed everything. We had a cheese and meat board and everything was refrigerator cold. The menu mentioned M’Tucci,s bread but a very chilly lavash came with it instead. We requested the promised bread and it “took time”, as promised. The brie was too cold to spread, the other two cheeses were nowhere near room temperature. The other two tapas we ordered were well done. Flank steak was perfectly cooked and sliced. The chicken skewers delicious,too. We sent the dessert back. It was nearly frozen and impervious to our spoons. The problem servings were removed from our bill and we left with an excellent bottle of whisky.

    Second visit to Vara. First time we had a very knowledgeable server and that was really fun! She recommended delicious pairings. This time service was subpar and our server wasn’t very knowledgeable about wine in general it seemed. Regardless, the paella was delicious and the wine was delicious and I will be back!

    We were very pleased with the total experience except for the asparagus dish. It was tasty but not worth the money. The asparagus were so small in size, which is fine,except there were about 8 of them.

    We went to our first ever Wine Tasting and this one at VARA was guided. We learned so much about wine, all thanks to Jenny, our guide. Jennny was very knowledgeable and made the experience fun and interesting. We loved it!! We tried 6 different wines along with snack so we can taste the difference of the wine tastes with food. Although we didn't get to try their food yet, we definitely will come back for dinner.

    It’s a great place to dine Food, wine and waitstaff are all terrific. The ambiance leaves a little to be desired until you remember that it is a working winery and distillery. That makes the experience more enjoyable.

    We did the guided wine and cheese tasting, and as this was our first experience, we weren't sure what to expect. We loved it! Jennie, our wine educator, was personable, knowledgeable, exciting, and quirky in all the best ways. We already want to go back and do it all again... as well as try out their dinner menu.

    As authentic as it gets from Spain here in Albuquerque. Food is always good, set in a nice location. As long as you understand that paella takes time to prepare, you will be waiting a bit, but it's time for you to taste the wine.

    This was our first time to Vara and this is what we learned: 1. You must have a reservation.They will only make a reservation for up to 8 people. 2. You have 2 hours to eat/drink only. 3. No separate checks. One check per table. The wine was good. The food was mostly good but not really a place I would choose for dinner. I noticed the first and last glasses of wine on the flights were my favorites. It was casual and family friendly. The portions are small (tapas) and are to be shared. We enjoyed the salad, goat cheese/peppers, tomato toast, Paella. One person ordered the steak but was surprised nothing came with it. Was tasty.

    The service was good, and the food was good. The only issue we had was that we ordered a bottle of Vara's sparkling wine, and it was served too warm. An ice bucket accompanied the wine, so only the initial pour was too warm
