“Lovely little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Just overnight in Taos and had a beautiful meal at Lamberts. The service is impeccable...the ambience is calm, uncluttered and low key. The stacked blue corn chicken enchiladas were amazing though the portion was easily enough for 2...the beef stroganoff was excellent as well and the berry cobbler with house made vanilla ice cream was sublime. Finally, I guess I'm a coffee snob...we live in Alaska and are happy to have one of the best coffee roasters in the country but our after dinner coffee was every bit as good. Highly recommended! We will certainly be back.

“Taos Dining At Its Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Taos lacks the quantity and quality of choices of restaurants that Santa Fe boasts, but Lambert's, on Bent Street is definitely a true contender. The cozy, southwestern minimalist interior is comfortable and fitting for northern New Mexico. The wait staff were professional and on point and made us feel as though we were old friends. The food was exceptional and artfully presented. We started with the toasted almond baked brie (excellent). For entrees, I had the mango chutney enchiladas (spicy and delicious) and my fiance had the filet mignon (she declared it outstanding). For dessert, she had the ice cream sundae (amazing) and I had the coconut cake (ditto). There are some very good restaurants in Taos, but if I were you, I would put Lambert's at the top my list.

“Stopped in for a Drink”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

And to check out the dinner menu as a possibility for that evening. They barely passed my margarita test and the house wine for happy hour was certainly nothing special. Nice small lounge area off the bar with some comfortable seating. The restaurant dining area on the main level was attractive. We just didn't find anything on the dinner menu that intrigued us for that night.

“Excellent Dinner and quiet ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Lambert's service, menu, wines and atmosphere were all top notch for us. We had wild mushroom risotto(superb) and banana wrapped tamales with black beans, calabacita and a red chile sauce and cojita, with corn/greens/carrots medley, also wonderful. Extensive selection of wines by the glass was also a real pleaser, allowing us to match without having too much! Loved this restaurant. Probably the most memorable of the several evenings of dining on out NM trip.

“Elegant and enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

During a ski trip we decided to try Lamberts. The dining room is nice an quiet, with elegant touches. The menu is small but has sime some excellent and creative options. The fusion style tamale was excellent, and the wine list had a good selection of both domestic and international selections.
