We were in Los Alamos on a Friday afternoon and googled restaurants. Can't really add to the great reviews. Friendly attentive staff and very good food. My wife had the portabella sandwich and I had the New Mexico beef. Both every tasty.

Lots a great stuff on the menu and always experimenting with specials. My favorite regular dish is the filo dough wrapped chicken. They put a lot of effort in to their wine menu so do have a glass as it's all good. A nice place to take a date. If it's not too busy they will let you sit in... More

Very good food in a remote place like Los Alamos. We had the Blue Corn enchiladas and Lamb Sandwich which were pretty good. You have some options in town, but if you want to get a decent healthy meal then I recommend this place. Locals recommended it, so we gave it a try. Right down the road is the Bradbery... More

I went here with a group of 12 people for a work function, so I got to try a few dishes and they were all fantastic. This little bistro is quaint with delicious food. The salads are great, the steak was wonderful, sandwiches are also very good. I skipped dessert because I was so stuffed from my meal. I think... More

Great place to meet friends for lunch. Good service and great food. Lots of interesting dishes -- common, but with a delicious twist that makes them even better.

Shrimp tacos were good, although the shrimp were small and not very plentiful. Service was excellent, nice atmosphere for in-town lunch.

We stumbled on to this perfect little bistro by asking some locals (BIG pick-up truck!), in a parking lot, where we should eat. Hands down, The Blue Window Bistro was their favorite eatery in Los Alamos. We were served 2 delicious breads first, ordered 2 dinners (salmon, pork rib) with wonderful pasta, perfectly cooked vegetables, great deserts, coffee, a soft... More

Great restaurant! About the only great one in Los Alamos. Nice colorful atmosphere, good service, varied menu. Food is always good. Great for lunch too. Ask if they have their famous Date Cake on the menu currently. It is wonderful but they do not always have it.

After touring the science museum, we ate dinner at the Blue Window. The food was fresh and creative. Service friendly and speedy. Pleasant surprise as there are not a lot of choices there!

Thank SanDiegoMimi
