The service was outstanding, attentive and offered great dining suggestions. No rush by staff and atmosphere was very relaxing. Food was excellent. The entire experience was top notch.
Food good as ever. One swamp cooler not working, not their fault, but rather warm.
Was surprised they no longer offer full bar, only beer and wine.
Dining is always pleasant at Blades'Bistro...vibrant, energetic environment, eclectic customers, interesting art works, fresh and tasty food. Service is always first rate. We'll be back!
Chef Kevin and his team consistently put out wonderful food, period! His soups - especially his Mushroom Bisque - are excellent! The Calamari appetizer is the best I've ever had! And the entrees are all great! Go and enjoy!!
No complaints. Noisy as did not get a booth. Food was better the last time we ate there.
We always enjoy Blades and recommend it to others.
Have a good experience every time!
Great service and amazing cuisine
We love Blades! We come here for every special occasion. The food is delicious. The service is exceptional, and the staff is so friendly. We can’t wait to come back to celebrate the next achievement or milestone.
I had the sauerkraut special and my wife had the chicken live plate. Both were excellent
Delicious food and an amazing view of the sunset from the patio!!
Had a great dinner with our teenagers. The food is always amazing play one of our favorite places.
Dinner at Blades Bistro was a pleasant experience that my wife and I throughly enjoyed. The food was excellent and the wait staff was friendly and informative.
One of the best dining experiences I have ever had. Wonderful food, service, and ambiance at great prices. Will definitely be back!
Absolutely delicious! My husband had the Caesar salad and the roma pasta with shrimp i had the brussel sprouts and seared ahi tuna....we loved it all ! This was our first time here...can't wait to go back.
Love coming ! Everyone so nice! Patio is delightful
Early dinner on the patio. Very quiet until a party of 11 sat down next to us. The entrees were very good, and so was the service...unfortunately, he had the entire patio so was pretty maxed out when it filled up. Would definitely return
Service from Jed was excellent. He did not hover and attended to all our needs. I was quite surprised at the menu. There were many great items on the menu and several outstanding appetizer specials.
The peach caprese was extraordinary!!
All of our entree’s were tasty and portions were appropriate. The deserts were easily shareable and finished the meal off nicely.
Well done Blades Bistro. You have 5 new converts.
Perfect as always. The Salmon was excellent
My second time equally awesome as last visit. Very impressed with food.. Also owner let us indoors from our outdoors dining reservation due to high wind. Probably the best food in Abq metro.
My husband and I went in there for 35th anniversary service was very well the atmosphere was very quiet and the food was absolutely delicious delicious
Awesome as usual. Great food, great service. It’s our weekly ritual.
We have eaten here several times and the food quality is always very good. The owners run a well organized efficient restaurant with all courses serve at the right pace. I will continue to be a loyal customer. Myself having worked restaurants, it is important for customers to realize Covid restrictions have had a huge impact and even as restrictions are lifted many restaurants are not able to serve at full capacity as they don’t have the waitstaff even though they are hiring. So please be gracious and recognize that the best restaurants are struggling to get back 100% staff and continue to support the takeout so restaurants can continue to hire and resume fine onsite dining.
Food and service were excellent. I had the salmon and shrimp stir fry. It was perfect. Husband's steak was so tender he could cut it with his fork. Highly recommend
First of all the positives... The food was excellent the steak was well prepared and the paella was exquisite. My only critique if you will was the service seemed slow. It was obvious the servers cater to the local crowd over first time diners. We sat outside and the view was spectacular. However they were loud motorcycles at times during the meal. That’s not really the restaurants fault though.
Always a great experience. Food was great. Atmosphere perfect outside.
What an enjoyable experience - the food was excellent, prepared to order, the server was professional and informative.
Blades never ceases to deliver. My husband loved his steak and my mussels and beef carpaccio were delicious. I love their selection of wine.
Always delicious and innovative! One of our favorite NM restaurants.
Terrific prime rib special! Sat outside and it was very pleasant.
Yet another amazing dinner! We went for our anniversary and the food was phenomenal. Ambiance was perfect and service was good. We will keep coming back!
Always consistently good food. Very nice servers and service. Highly recommended.
We feel so fortunate to have a lovely neighborhood bistro so close to our new home in Placitas. Wonderful service, ambiance and great food. No place better to spend an evening sitting on the patio and enjoy a great meal and great company.
Our second visit for dinner during these challenging times. Now passed our third year in NM and ABQ. Blades is the best gastro experience we have had in all of NM. Thank you.
Another wonderful evening and dinner at Blades.
Excellent clam chowder, yellow-fin tuna, pasta w/shrimp. Top notch service on patio. Very good wine selections. Our first restaurant dining in a year, was great!
Always great food and consistant. Easy location. A local favorite
Absolutely amazing place the best food and service I have ever received
Great food & wine options. Pleasant service. Heat lamps at each table provide ample heat once the sun goes down. Patio faces the parking lot.
