The ingredients are of poor quality, the atmosphere is dark and cramped, but the prices are pretty high. The food is just average or below. Just a bit of advise, Culinary School. Hey call the guy from the cooking show that saves restaurants to show you how things could be done to bring it back up to par.

We stayed in Grants, New Mexico for one night on our way to Disneyland. We looked at reviews and saw that La Ventana got pretty good reviews, so we decided to try it. We were really glad we did. We were a group of 9 (6 adults and 3 kids--all 4 yrs old.) The place was full, but we didn't have to wait long for a table. The inside wasn't really pretty, but it was ok, it just looked old and dark, but it seemed clean. The food was good. The salsa was spicy, but tasty. We had a mix of Mexican food and steaks. One of our group got a shishkabob and it was the best any of us got. I would like to go back sometime for that again...it was really that good. Really everything (even the kids' food was good.) We were glad we stopped. The service was ok too. No complaints about this place! Try it if you get the chance.

The food was ok, the service was excellent. I guess this is ok for a small town. Food is VERY spicey !

Last night we found ourselves in Grants, NM to meet our daughter who was there for a business trip. Where to eat??? Well, that would be La Ventana, of course. All of her co-workers said that this is the place where you take parents. We arrived early- a good idea as the place was absolutely full by the time we left. Let's be honest, this is not Fleming's, Ruth's Chris, or even Outback, BUT the food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the prices were reasonable. My daughter and I both had prime rib, it was wonderful. My husband had the NY Strip and my daughter's co-worker had the steak and shrimp kabob. Let's just say that every plate was completely cleaned at the end of the meal. It was that good. We shared an apple crisp for dessert. It was warm and came with a large scoop of ice cream. Yep, that plate was cleaned too! The crust was buttery and tender and the crunchy bits were just right. It tasted completely homemade and not food service-y. Oh yeah, I almost forgot... they have an actual wine list. Not extensive, but at least several choices in each category. If you are traveling with children (we weren't) they seemed to have a pretty decent children's menu. The kids at the next table were chowing down on some awesome looking cheese sandwiches!
