Really tasty food.
Presentation of food was quite good.
Asian BBQ ribs had outstanding taste; just should have been a little warmer temperature-wise.
Smoked salmon in the Caesar salad was outstanding.
French wine (de Nimes) was terrific.
Bread could have been brought to our table a little sooner but overall experience was worthy of another visit for sure.
The food is absolutely excellent, well prepared and presented! The waiters are exceptional. The owner is present and available. This is one of our favorite restaurants!
We have not been there for awhile. Now I remember why. The service was very polite but slow except when they collected my credit card. The restaurant was only three quarters full on a Saturday night. My steak was cooked to the right temperature but was pretty tough. The same for my wife's casoulet. It is unlikely we will return which is unfortunate as it used to be very good
Had the Forest Soup made of a number of fragrant mushrooms which was delightful followed by tasty Spinach Salad. Husband had the Forest Soup and Boeuf Bourguignon. Both had Chocolate Decadence Trio which was to die for. Very pleased. Made a great birthday celebration.
Meal was prepared very well. Only item to mention is sauce with blackened tuna was a little salty but just my taste. Will not hesitate to go back. Was not disappointed at all.
I just love Blades’ Bistro. It is a hidden gem off the beaten trail, but not too far from ABQ and Rio Rancho. Anja greets you at the door and her staff makes you feel like a special customer. The food choices are excellent and the cuisine is much like a much higher-priced dining experience. Blades’ Bistro is where I take my friends for a classy meal with a friendly flair.
Good is good, service better than in the past, and music was subpar. Love the owners, nice outdoor patio!
I enjoyed everything about Blades Bistro, from the lovely person who greeted me at the door, to the server who was very attentive, though not overly so, to the great bluegrass band that played, and lastly to the superb food and wine selection. The combination made for an overall very pleasant dining experience. Thanks!
Blades always delivers an excellent meal.
Lovely ambiance for a couples dinner; delicious food; excellent service.
Service could have been better- forgot green chile on top of omelette and took awhile to get toast but omelette was very tasty as well as chicken fried steak!
It was wonderful as usual. Anya, Kevin, and their staff are great. Good food, views and ambiance. The occasion was a group of friends who knew each other uniquely and some who hadn't seen each other 8n years. Our waiter was solicitous, but he let us just talk. We were there for almost 3 hours. Thank you to Anya and Kevin and their staff.
We love coming to Blade's to hear our friends in Jazz to Go play! And the food and atmosphere is amazing too!
First time here, very disappointing. Service slow, very noisy, crowded.
Food not very tasty. Shrimp pasta (3 shrimp) Chicken dish tasteless
Will not return
Always have great meal there. If you like Chicken Livers, which I know are not everyones thing, you have to try these.
I proposed to my girlfriend that night and everything was perfect. The food, service and the friendliness of the restaurant is unmatched.
One of my favorite places. it was a special occasion and Blades did not disappoint. From the Old Fashioned cocktails to the entrees, its always a special occasion at Blades. I had the steak salad and my companion had the NY strip cooked to perfection. I love their attention to detail and the warmth that Anya and Kevin show is immeasurable. it feels like I'm at a good friends home! they have an exceptional wine list. make reservations and sit on the patio during these beautiful cool summer NM evenings. I love their menu and the the wait staff is always attentive without being intrusive. I take all my out of town guests and am never disappointed. they shop locally and that is very important to me. it's always fresh and creative. enjoy!
Our favorite area restaurant! Chef Kevin puts out consistently great food!!!
Brunch selection of benedicts is awesome. Copenhagen Benedict with smoked salmon was wonderful. A great way to say farewell to dear house guests is to treat them to Sunday brunch. And treat yourself to a clean kitchen.
This is a hidden gem. The staff was so friendly and the food made my inner fat girl very happy! It has been the best tasting food I have had in a long time. I would go here for every meal if I could.
Blades Bistro was wonderful ... as usual! One of our faves. A small, intimate, sophisticated bistro tucked in the corner of the Homestead Village Plaza in Placitas, NM. We love that the Chef buys from local vendors and capitalizes on the seasonality of fruits and vegetables. But the way they are prepared is innovative and always tasty. A place you must try!
Great food atmosphere and service. Locally owned and operated.
We had a birthday dinner at Blades. We live out of town so we had an early dinner, arriving at 5:00. We enjoyed wonderful service (Sean was our server), wine, and food. We ordered a mix of "off the menu" and specials; all were delicious. All entrees came with the same seasonal vegetable and potato. If I had a suggestion it would be to prepare a side that specifically complimented the entree. However, this may not be practical for the small kitchen. We shared a slice of cheesecake topped with figs and orange peel. It was a beautiful balance of sweet and bitter.
Just great people and place. Food variety and drinks also very satisfying.
We love Blades! It's a neighborhood restaurant with a sophisticated city feel. The service is amazing and the food is always delicious. I love that Chef Kevin sources everything locally. And Anja, his wife is always the smiling face at the door. You MUST try this place. You won't be disappointed.
Rib appetizer is excellent. Tasty specials. Good wine at reasonable prices.
We were so pleasantly surprised at the ambience and the total experience! The staff were very friendly with great welcoming smiles! The food was delicious as well as the monestary beer! The home-made ice cream was so delicious too! We will recommend Blades to friends and family! We will be back! We also suggest to make a reservations as it seems to be very popular!
Wonderful brunch. The patio dining was great, and they provided blankets for the slight chill in the air.
excellent food with options created by the chef that are unusual and very tasty....great service as well
This place is awesome. The atmosphere is nice, and if you go outside on that patio for music, it's very quaint. The service is impeccable. The food is something you won't find at many places - very unique, and very tasty. Highly recommend this place.
We decided to sit outside as inside noise level was very high.
Food and service was excellent. Will go back.
Excellent as always, great neighborhood joint, Kevin and Anja are wonderful owners and hosts.
Food is always great. Service is 50/50 - been there four times. Twice great service, twice seemed drastically understaffed so difficult for servers to provide good service.
We had a great dining experience on Saturday night. Owner continued to circulate the Dining Room, attentive to all of her guests' needs.
Server was attentive and professional. Food was great. Wine selection was also good. The only setback was that the Restaurant did not have our favorite dessert that night--the Crème Brulee, which is always great here.
Otherwise, a great outing!
Of course we would. We love Blades' and our server was awesome. Highly recommend!
We ordered the London steak, it was amazing! So tender. I ordered a daiquiri and it was delicious!!!
Great place to dine. We love going there either alone or with friends. Kevin Blades is a great chef. Anna is always cordial and accommodating.
Tony was exceptional waiter. Well versed on the menu and easy to interact with during our dinner. Food was very good-well prepared and served in a timely manner.
