Not much too look at and quite dark inside, but who cares about that? The important part, the food, yummy! Ordered rare prime rib and it came as ordered and was very good. Staff if great!

Went there while visiting the area. Order something inexpensive. Not worth $$ for the steaks. White wine was served warm and service was mediocre.

We stopped by for dinner after reading all the great reviews on the place, boy were we disappointed! Our waitress was very nice and sweet but the cook made our enchiladas wrong and when the waitress brought it to his attention she came back to our table and had to take our plates back because the cook didn't believe her!...

It seemed it was the only popular restaurant for proper dining in the small town. It was full in the main dining hall so we got a table in a separate room for ourselves.

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!
