A Rare Find

We arrived after 8 PM to find the dining room closed at our hotel. We had just driven from Denver thru rain, snow, wind and hail, on the edge of a tornado! Really wanted to sit down to some tequila and a nice meal. The desk clerk was friendly, but unable to suggest any place but the Taco Bell... read more

Based on a few of the mixed reviews I had some reservations but decided to check out La Ventana and I'm glad that I did. Unlike a previous reviewer, my ribeye was grilled to perfection (medium rare), the dinner salad was large with an assortment of greens, cukes, and bell pepper, and the loaded baked potato was huge! Nicole was... More

Our soup and sandwich hit the spot. The soup was chicken noodle and wad definitely made in-house. We chose a club sandwich, which they split for us, no fuss or extra charge We will eat there again when in Grants.

Definitely a great place for steak. Nice tender rib eye, good salad, helpful waitstaff. Make a reservation, it's small and gets crowded with locals.

We were staying overnight in Grants and checked tripadvisor for somewhere to eat. La Ventana had good reviews so we drove over. It's tucked a little ways down the street and looks a little sketchy on the outside. The entrance was a little hard to find (it's the door on the right by the way!) Inside is a bit dated... More

Depending upon the time of day the shadows might make your photos turn out to be not quite what one might expect compared to the experience of seeing this natural arch up close and personal, but it makes for a great stop during the scenic drive through El Malpais! Rest Rooms are clean and the serenity of the location makes... More

Went to dinner last night at this establishment, it was recommended by a friend. The restaurant looked like a dive at first, but as we walked in the atmosphere was friendly. The restaurant was not crowded, so at first i was wondering how this place was surviving, but as the night went on i could see how the place survives.... More

I thought I would treat myself to a nice steak dinner before heading into the mountains for my elk hunt. I walked in and decided to sit at the bar since it was next to the finning tables. The bar was horrible and outdated. I ordered a rib eye and received an okay steak but a nasty wilted salad and... More

We flew into Albuquerque and drove an hour to Grants on our way to the Grand Canyon. It was late and the first place we stopped to eat was closed. They suggested La Ventana. It's a little bit off the main drag, and it seemed dark. My husband went in to check it out and gave the thumbs up. We... More
