“Wine and Tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

The dinner menu looks great, but I opted for the gambas al ajillo from the tapas menu since I was not very hungry. Outstanding! The shrimp were perfectly sautéed in garlic and olive oil and although the plate was small,there was plenty of baguette to soak up the sauce. The bar has no craft beer selection at all, but I enjoyed a nice glass of wine. The bar was lively but low key - a nice place to hang out and and spend a relaxing evening.

“Blue Mountain Bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This restaurant has recently re-opened under the name Blue Mountain Bistro. It is the best full service upscale restaurant in Ft. Davis. Of course it is not Dallas or any other big city level or style -- but why would you be in Ft. Davis if you are looking for the big city??? It is definitely good, with a nice bar and diverse menu. The boeuf bourguignon is a unique recipe (quite tastey) and the trout is also quite good. The tomato bisque is as good as you can find. We had a reservation but I'm not sure you would need one every week. We were there on July 4th.

They were serving dinner outside on the patio while we were there but we elected to sit inside since it was a little hot outside.

“Rude Owner”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

When we walked in and saw there was no one to seat us, we waited a few minutes before were greeted by the owner. She made it perfectly clear that we were a pain in the butt for being in her restaurant. She said that although she was the owner, she knew nothing about seating people. She asked her clearly overworked waiter to seat us which he did promptly and graciously. The food was barely edible. We will not be back.

David S, Owner at Blue Mountain Bistro, responded to this review, July 10, 2013
We are sorry that the guest was not satisfied with our restaurant. Apparently, they misinterpreted our desire to serve them on a night on which we were understaffed with rudeness. We stand firmly behind the quality of our food. This person has rated all but one of the restaurants that they reviewed on Trip Advisor as "terrible", so we can only assume that they are extremely difficult to please.
