First visit here. I had a Cobb Salad which was okay. There was lots of white iceburg lettuce which I did not appreciate. The rest of the salad was fine. My husband had a soft chicken taco and enjoyed it. We ended with a shared Applecrumb Cake with ice cream. We did not drink the water. Didn't like the taste.

Do not be fooled by the exterior. This place is great, especially given the small town it is in. The menu is extensive with lots of choices from casual Mexican to excellent steaks. The staff was friendly and although very busy still seemed happy to see us and service was speedy. If in the area again, or even close, this... More

We had a little difficulty finding the restaurant, but it was well worthwhile. We ended up eating here two nights in a row as it was so enjoyable. Great service and food. Fantastic salads and steaks.

Received a recommendation from the hotel staff that this was the place for a great meal, but they said don't judge it by the exterior, as it's a little outdated. After a little searching we finally located La Ventana and were a little skeptical by it's location and appearance. However, we were warmly greeted by the staff, promptly seated, presented... More

The three of us were all pleased with our dinners and the low price for them. Two of us enjoyed enchiladas, the third a pasta dish. We all fought over a shared piece of blueberry crumble! The staff were friendly and efficient.

It's always nice to find an upscale restaurant (WITH WINE) in a small town when traveling. After driving all day long, we were so excited when we did an online search for a nice restaurant in Grants and found La Ventana. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because I screwed up and ordered the wrong thing when... More

Came out to Grants for the day, specifically to try out this restaurant. The menu selections and the meal I actually ordered did not disappoint. Decided to try out the Cobb Salad since I hadn't seen that on any menu since my favorite restaurant in Albuquerque closed a couple of years ago. It was a truly excellent choice and I... More

Stopped for lunch to catch some baseball on opening day. Their cable feed had the Colorado Rockies on from the Root Denver channel. Service was a home run. The food( chef salad and steak sandwich) was a winner. After lunch decaf was served with a smile, even though a new pot had to be brewed. Ask for Chelsea for great... More

A parking lot overflowing with cars convinced us that this must be a good place even though there were bars on the windows and the was rather dull, other than the large mural of the wall. Inside was a different story. A small dining room with lots of tables. It was full as was another room to the side that... More

When we pulled into the parking lot, we 'almost' turned around, but we were tired and hungry. SO GLAD we went in. This is a jewel. I had the salmon, which was cooked absolutely perfectly. Moist and very well seasoned. My husband had the Shimp/Chicken Kabob; the chicken melted in your mouth. Both were very good size portions. Prices range... More
