  • Good food, poor service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 9/1/2013
    We waited 20-30 minutes for our drinks, as well as between each course. It was a celebratory dinner, so we persevered and ordered dessert and champagne, but gave up when it still hadn't been delivered after 30 minutes of waiting with nothing in front of us. We tried to explain the situation to the owner, but he pushed us off to the head chef. She didn't even let us finish before handing us over to our server, who rung us up without explanation. No one apologized or tried to remedy the situation. A huge disappointment.

    I've been going to Graham's Grille 4 or 5 times a year for about 3 years, and I have yet to have a bad (or even mediocre) meal! The menu is varied, with something tasty for every dietary preference (gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan), and their specials are great: on my last visit I had an arugula salad with heirloom tomatoes, asparagus, and baked mozzarella, with pesto and a lovely vinaigrette dressing. There are New Mexican specialties, Asian-influenced dishes, and American standards (their mac and cheese, I hear, is outstanding). Servings are fairly generous but not overwhelming. The wine list is well chosen, and they offer a good variety of wines by the glass. The desserts are homemade and always good. I recommend it highly.

  • Slowest brunch service ever

    Dined on 9/1/2013
    We waited for an hour and half for our food. They kept saying it was coming and making excuses. The manager told one of the people I was with that the waitress forgot to put the order in but then told another person that the menu is too big and they really shouldn't be doing brunch. But they have a huge sign up front saying voted best brunch in taos. The waitress continued to say its because they were a few large parties. I heard a table next me ask what's the fastest thing they could. She said anything on the grill, you will be waiting a while. What is the point in being open then? If it wasn't for the company we had, we would have just got up and left.

    We were lucky enough to get a reservation at 9pm. We felt like we were on a tropical vacation. The ambience and weather was perfect. We just ordered dessert since we already ate at home but we decided a nice evening out would be a good idea and it was. The only not so perfect food item was the cappuccino. There was no foam. Ah well... We've eaten there several times and always had a great meal and excellent service.

    My wife and I went to GG during a weekend getaway in Taos. We were greeted by Peter, the owner who showed us to our table. He was very personable and was very attentive, but not overbearing. Our waitress was similar in her great service. The food was great. I had the crab, bacon and corn chowder and a cheeseburger. Both were great, though the burger was slightly under-cooked. My wife had the macaroni and cheese and loved it. Very rich. We would recommend the restaurant to those going to Taos

    We like to entertain clients and visitors at Graham's because the food and service are consistently good. Chef Lesley and her husband, Peter always make it a memorable evening. Our party of 4 started with double Chile Con Quesos-decadent but a treat for "chile heads" and followed with Baby Iceberg Bacon & Blue salads. Entrees were Chicken Picatta, Blue Corn Red Trout, Shrimp in Coconut Milk & Thai Red Chile Sauce and the evening's special, Steak with Potatoes Au Gratin. By far the best steak we have had in anyTaos restaurant so far! We all shared the Margarita Key Lime Pie, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Gelato Torte and Bourbon Pecan Cheesecake. Everything was delicious, including our wine. Reservation at 6, left at 9 - Wonderful evening!

    This place is wonderful. The food was excellent, decor was clean and inviting. I had the sea bass that was cooked perfectly, but the highlight was dessert! The chocolate nachos were amazing and so delicious. Leslie, the chef, came out personally to ask us how our meal was, Graham's is on the "have to" list in Taos for us!

    After reading the comments that were previously posted we still made the decision to have dinner at this lovely bistro. Service was terrific. They were well versed in the wine and beer list and able to provide great choices given our questions as well as the dinner menu. Our waiter was also appropriately attentive and never rushed us through out the meal. The meals from salad to mac and cheese all had their special twist and were gobbled up. We even decided to have dessert that evening. The cheese cake with chocolate had a thick layer of chocolate and amazing cheesecake, the dessert nachos was enough for three and were a perfect completion to the meal as they were very light and delicious.

    We went here on the advice of a friend from Denver, and are so glad we did. Graham's is a really nice, upscale change from the standard fare in Taos. The trout was excellent, as was the chicken, and service was prompt and attentive. Dessert was a marvelous chocolate indulgence. The décor is really fantastic too, and a nice change from the southwestern motif. We would definitely go back, and also plan to go for brunch next time.

    My steak was fine but my husband's was well done, not medium as ordered. The waitress offered to have a new one cooked, but he declined since I would have been finished eating by the time he got his meal. We were also offered a glass of wine it didn't want ay more. The owner came over, looked at his steak and agreed it was way overdone. We were the offered dessert, which we would not have offered but did accept it. It came out differently that what was described and was just okay. We feel the restaurant should of have charged for his meal, or at least discounted the price, but this was never offered. We will never go back.

    Taos is known for its great food. But sometimes, I get a little tired of the standard southwest fare when I'm there. Graham's kicks it up a notch. They do some southwest dishes, but they add a creative twist. They also offer some north of the border dishes that are very good. You can't go wrong here. There's something for everyone. Delish!

    What a joy. The food was amazing, our wait person was efficient, friendly, and really seemed to care about our comfort. I was traveling with my dog so had to find places that would allow puch. grhams was perfect. We sat on the covered porch-- perfect for monsoon season. The other guests were friendly and recommended their favorite dishes. I highly recommend this restaurant with or without a pet. I went to another pet friendly place also highly recommend, they were not friendly and the food and atmosphere were unremarkable. Go to ghrams.

    Graham's Grille is our go-to place when we want to take out of town friends to a higher end New Mexico cuisine restaurant. The food is consistently good, fresh and seasonal. Specials change daily. The wine list is very good. The Adobe Pie is a great example of New Mexico cuisine. And be sure to save room for dessert. They are unsurpassed. All are good, and worth a try. The menu boasts items that are gluten free and vegetarian. I have found that the chef knows more about what's in the food than the wait staff, so ask specific questions if you have special culinary needs. They are always friendly and willing to please. Oftentimes, Leslie Fay, the owner, is present and available to chat. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

    The Middle Eastern Lamb Burger is my absolute favorite; cannot seem to order any of the other good things on the menu. Great and varied menu and pretty consistently good quality and service, which is a rare achievement in Taos. The interior decor, especially in the new dining room, is hard and cold, making the place really noisy. Other than that, it's a great place to dine.

    A Sunday afternoon brunch was terrific. We walked in with no reservation and were quickly seated and served. All entrees were prepared carefully and tasted great. Graham's Grille is a dependable choice for a fine brunch, lunch, or dinner, and this visit simply confirmed this fact. We will continue to return at least once during each trip to Taos.

    Excellent food, wine and service. We live in the SF Bay are and visit Taos frequently, this is our one certain reservation. On this visit we were served by Rick, exemplary attention to detail and well thought through suggestions and answers to our questions. The level of training extends to all involved; Jose who looked after clearing our table circled unobtrusively and yet was there at the precisely correct moment each time with warmth and courtesy. These things do not happen by accident, they are the result of good management. Oh, did I mention the food? Well, that is why we come here. There are many fine dining choices in Taos, but if you had one night to eat in town, dare I say it; mahe it Graham's Grille. Thanks Lesley & Team

    We've been to Grahams several times & have always enjoyed it. The upside-excellent dinner! Lots of wonderful flavors, nice presentation, food was hot, salad was fresh, portions were great! The downside-service, as always, was slow. Don't expect to grab a quick meal. Although the flavors on the french toast at brunch were good, it was very dry-I was surprised at this based on how well dinner had been executed the night before. This was the first time I've been to Grahams and not had good service which was unfortunate. As mentioned, the service has always been slow, but friendly. This time, the waitresses, especially the brunch one, seemed uninterested, unwelcoming, and bothered by us. We'll come back, just hope the service improves!

    Graham's Grill had been recommended to us by a former local and they were so right to send us there. The food was incredible, the descriptions on the menu made us want to try everything and everything we tried lived up to its description. Their menu accommodates many diet difficulties and they will work to make menu items fit yours. But the real reason we were so pleased was the service. They went above and beyond what you would usually expect from any restaurant and then above some more. When in Taos you really MUST experience this!
