After a pleasant but hot hike thru Bandelier, we took a detour into Los Alamos to eat at the Blue Window Bistro. For starters, we ordered the caesar salad, which was bland and tasted like bottled salad dressing, nothing special and wouldn't order it again. For dinner, my wife had the burger, and... read more

We usually eat here when we're in town. Service was okay and the food was not bad. But this restaurant seems to want to be viewed as upscale, indicated by menu descriptions and pricing as well as wait staff posture and it just wasn't. The food was not flavorful and some of the locals demanded so much service that nearby... More

We stopped at the Blue Window bistro for lunch. Although the restaurant is located in a strip mall and doesn't look like much from the outside, it's actually very good. We had wraps and salads, both of which were very good. The food was fresh and well prepared. The restaurant had a unique atmosphere with eclectic decor that made the... More

Ok food. Meal interrupted by fire alarm and fire fighters in the restaurant. At no time did the staff say anything to the diners about what was happening. That is poor form.

Friend and I went for dinner at the recommendation of a co-worker. Friend got the prime rib, I got the sirloin. Both were tough as shoe leather. Neither of us finished the food or asked for a to go box.

Since there are not many places to eat in Los Alamos, so we keep giving this place a try. But no more. The service is horrible - not friendly, do not fill drinks, forget to bring items you ask for - and it is too expensive for what you get. This last visit we sat for 20 minutes for the... More

Just a nice place to go for something different in Los Alamos. I have always been pleased with the food and service. It is a little pricey, but everything in Los Alamos is. I'm not a sea food eater, so I usually stick with the New Mexican.

A bit expensive and the steak my husband ordered was more well done than medium rare even though they would get him another steak he said no, staff is very nice, small place so gets crowded fast.

We took the advice of reviewers, and we chose Blue Window for dinner on a Monday evening. We were surprised at the prices for the options on the menu. It was crowded for a Monday. Maybe because we ate what we could afford, but our meals were average in quality. After we finished our meals, we heard a different server... More
