Sitting at the bar before we were seated (which was over an hour) we had 8-10 options on tap and a couple dozen options in bottles. Appetizers (calamari) were excellent. I had New York strip for dinner, cooked perfectly. This will be my first stop the next time I am in town.

Blue Window is now a Los Alamos institution - which is saying something for a town that has trouble keeping eateries in business. Blue Window has been operating since the 1980s, and although there has been ownership changes, the quality of the food has always been top rate. The menu is causal american with a New Mexican bent. I enjoy... More

The food and ambiance is always Very Good. The new larger venue adds just that extra bit of space which makes an already wonderful restaurant even more enjoyable!

Decided to try this place based on the high reviews, but left not understanding how it got those reviews. The place opens at 1130 which I think is late for a lunch place. We were the first people seated however not close to be the first being served. The lunch crowd started showing up and we just sat there waiting... More

I'm not exactly sure why our dinner reservations were at 4:30 pm! In Asia, that would be a sign that the place is very popular and exceptionally good! And it was! It was a prix fixe menu with selections for each of the 5 courses! My friend had scallops while I had sliders for starters, both were vet good! Then... More

We were looking forward to dining here after reading all the reviews but I guess it was an off night. The wait staff was outstanding. I have to say that before anything else. Unfortunately the meals were underwhelming to say the least. My wife's entree was not seasoned at all. My salmon smelled fishy in spite of being severely charred... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Los Alamos!! They have wonderful food and friendly service. I had the chicken croissant sandwich, and it was perfect: delicious grilled chicken, crispy bacon, lovely guacamole! I have never had a bad meal there. They moving to a new location soon, and although I'll miss the ambience of the current location, I have no... More

I had a business meeting in Los Alamos and we went to the Blue Window for dinner. The restaurant is quite upscale for a region not known for that. They had a surprisingly diverse menu with both seafood and terrestrial meats. The wine menu was small, but they had nice offerings by the glass or bottle. Service was very good.... More

The food tastes wonderous fresh and designed on the plate to ensure the feeling that a Great Chef is behind every plate.
