We tried this restaurant since it got good reviews and are so glad we did! The menu seemed (to us) a little eclectic since it merges steaks and seafood with Mexican cuisine, but everything was top notch! Coming from SoCal, we like our Mexican food and this didn't disappoint. The enchiladas were delicious; I ordered red and green sauce and... More

My wife and I were a little skeptical from the outward appearance, but pleasantly surprised inside. This is obviously a well known restaurant in the area, and it seems popular with local people. We didn't have reservations but were seated at the bar immediately. Service was very good, and we enjoyed our food very much. The place was packed. Great... More

While in Grants, a teen recommend La Ventana, and it does NOT disappoint! The fried shrimp...to die for, and everything is so tasty fresh!!! Our waitress, Audreyana was superb. Her sweet demeanor, and spirit makes any meal better, and her sweet assistant Morbid is a jewel, as well. Do not miss an opportunity to eat here!

La Ventana in Grants, NM has a reputation for excellent traditional Mexican food, seafood & steaks. The only Resturant with full bar service in town. A great experience after traveling all day on the back roads of New Mexico and Arizona. Fast, friendly and professional service.

Once again La Ventana came through with great meals on our tour and all our guests were very happy. Great food and service is a tradition at La Ventana and they live up to it every time we go there. If you want a really great steak get the Rib Eye. If you order it well done though, you may... More

We were staying in Grants on a road trip and La Ventana was recommended by hotel. This place is awesome, the service was outstanding and the steaks were perfect. Really everything was wonderful for all 4 of us. The Mexican style steak was especially good. We would go out of our way to eat here again.

I sat at the bar for dinner. Beer was cold and the ceaser salad with excellent steak hit the spot. Only complaint was the salad dressing - more vinegar than ceaser, and too much of it. Better to order the dressing on the side.

This sleepy little town harbors a gem. We had dinner on the way to Albuquerque and it was very good. The place was packed on a Thursday night. We are glad we stopped there and would go back again.

Even though the menu does not identify any gluten-free options, the staff was very helpful and the owner was knowledgeable. I had a sirloin steak covered in green chile and cheese and my friend (who is not GF) had salmon. Both were very delicious and came with salad and potato. The portions were a good size and the prices were... More
