Description: Lambert's of Taos is a family-owned and operated full service, upscale establishment serving Contemporary American cuisine with northern New Mexican influences in an elegant but relaxed setting. We are one of the few establishments in town that serves cocktails in addition to beer and wine. Upstairs we have the Treehouse Bar and Lounge for those not in the mood for linen tablecloths and looking for a cool, classy, and eclectic hangout with well-versed bartenders and inviting prices. During our Happy Hour (2:30 - 6:00), everything on our Happy Hour menu is $6.

“Underwhelmed”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

I was really disappointed we went there with our family for their last evening in town.
We had to fill our own wine glasses and top off our water all evening. For the high price menu typically you get your water and wine topped off. My parsnips side was cold. The NM stew appetizer was over the top spicy and should have been noted by either the wait staff or the menu. The gazpacho was disappointing The portions were small. The single glass of wine that was ordered was less than I've ever seen come to a table. Everyone thought their meal was just" good " I guess my expectation was too high given 2014 dining awards. The entire place seemed tired and the bathroom was dirty beyond use upstairs.

“Courtyard Brunch”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We enjoyed the patio. Food was good, but not great! Service was friendly, but slow. Asked for ketchup for our fries and waited too long for such a simple request.

“Recent trip to Taos”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

I recently returned to Taos and had dinner there. I was extremely under-whelmed with the dinner offerings and the service. I did, however, really enjoy the home-baked bread - a truly exceptional sourdough. Although, the entrée menu was lackluster and the actual preparation was even worse, the dessert offerings saved the day for my party of 8 - many of us restaurant professionals. Lamberts seems to lack the heart of the former Apple Tree Restaurant while trying too hard to be more upscale. Frankly, the food and service were mediocre. It feels as though the chef needs to go on a few months of professional development in some other regions of the world to excite his taste buds and imagination again.

“Very pleasant experience”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

We ate on the patio at Lamberts. The food was very good. The salmon special was not special but still good. The service was fabulous and attentive. It was pricey.
