A wonderful restaurant for a romantic dinner the service was impeccable the food was so outstanding I do wish they had more gluten-free options for dessert. They also have an incredible wine selection.

I've eaten at this place a number of times in the past 3-4 months and it is very good. The salads, starters and mains are all excellent. They also have a great wine list, some good craft beers in the bottle. They have great hamburgers and amazing fries. The lobster mac & cheese is also excellent. The service is also... More

They have wine on tap as well as offering flights of wine! The staff is knowledge, friendly, and welcoming. Very upscale atmosphere for the area, yet super reasonable prices!

We visited this restaurant as part of a group of 10. The restaurant was expecting us and we were seated upon arrival. Drink orders were placed and appetizers were followed. There was some confusion between the wait staff and the kitchen regarding the availability of some requested oysters. 2 dozen were ordered, we ended up with 3 dozen. Not sure... More

We went to the 626 on Rood pretty much based on the TripAdvisor reviews but we were pretty disappointed. The wine selections were “ok” and we sampled several - the food really wasn’t that great. It could just be our taste in foods but the options are “Fru Fru,” derived from the phrase spelled "frou-frou" meaning fancy, elegant or very... More

This is an awful restaurant! The staff was extremely rude to us. They did not bring us refills, and when we ordered he giggled at what we picked. It's like they thought they were So much better than us. My wife and I will not be going back to this place! It is totally not worth the money!

Save this one for a special occasion--bit pricey but great wine list and wonderful food. We had the holiday dinner which was delicious. Not sure how they did up the wild rice but it was so so tasty!

This bistro w/ fine dining and thoughtful (and local) wines is amazing to find in this dusty small city in the desert! Junction ain't no Boulder, and many would say it doesn't even deserve a place as cool as 626, but the few locals who regularly go in there "get it", plus, there are enough tourists passing thru that keep...
