Food was very good and the service was excellent. At this time only the outdoor patio tables were being served, and everything was very clean and in good condition. Flies were a bother, but are anywhere. Servers and all the staff wore masks which was good to see.

Food was served cold. Waitress made excuses but we insisted on having hot food, even suggesting it at least be microwaved. Meal was expensive with no concession made for cold food. Disappointed in this dining experience.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. The restaurant didn’t do anything special, but the food was great. I will definitely eat here again if I am in Ft Davis.

Somehow our reservation wasn’t on master schedule although written in book. They did accommodate though. Salmon was dry for all three of us. Appetizers were really good.

The service and food were wonderful. We had a reservation for 5:30. We showed up a bit early and were seated right away. Highly recommend if you find yourself in Fort Davis.

Our party of three had a good experience at the Bistro. Our food was very good. The pasta dish with shrimp was exceptional. My friends had a chicken fried steak and a cheeseburger with fries. All of us were pleased.

Great fish - loved our mountain trout and salmon dishes. Wings were good as well. We ate at 5:30 on a Saturday prior to the 7:30 star party and made it without any rush (finished dinner at 6:20). Would go again next time we’re in town

Service was excellent. Our server was very informative and guided me well as to which wine to pick. The crab cakes were delicious and the street tacos were good as well. Although the street tacos were good they were not what I expected. Very different flavor but good. I was very impressed with the service

As usual Blue Mountain Bistro surpasses our expectations. Every January we come out to Big Bend and either start our trip with dinner at Blue Mountain Bistro or end with the Bistro. Every year we bring new people with us and they are always amazed at the quality and diversity of the food. We will continue our annual trek to Big Bend and our visit to your wonderful Bistro.

We ate at the bar, which was quite crowded with an early crowd trying to get in a dinner before attending the Star Party at the McDonald observatory. Bartender was pulling double-duty pouring drinks and taking orders, so service was less than stellar. Food and ambiance were excellent. They could phone it in since they’re really the only nice restaurant in town, but they go above and beyond by providing excellent food with charming ambiance.

5pm reservations, didn’t get our food till about 6:30. They seemed to be doing a triage on their orders even though it’s a very small restaurant - asking who was going to the star party (we were, and told them so). Had to bolt down a $100+ meal in five minutes to leave for the observatory (and we were still late). The kids didn’t get to finish eating, and we had to box everything up. The food definitely wasn’t worth missing an event we spent hours going out of our way home to get to. (And when we sat down it took 15+ min to get waters for the kids. They just don’t seem to have anything together.) On (the only) positive note, my husband said his bison burger and fries were really good.

This used to be one of our very favorite restaurants. Don't know what happened, but I will NEVER eat there again. We had reservations for New Year's Eve, made a MONTH in advance. Snippy hostess sat us in the worst table in the bar, and couldn't understand why I was upset by a LARGE table of 8 drunks, literally on top of us. We ate our salads and left.

We dined on Christmas Eve. While the food and service were wonderful, we were a little disappointed in the reduced menu options. As a Christmas destination, Fort Davis is a challenge because the very few restaurants not only offer reduced menus, but the hours of operation are subject to change without notification. Unadvertised closings were not a problem with Blue Mountain Bistro, but the minimal menu prevented us from wanting to dine there more than once during our stay.
Our server, Jerrod, was outstanding. He paid attention to his tables and kept the pace appropriate.

We ate here twice. The first time the service was excellent, the second time it was fine but nothing to brag about. The food was good and the second time we splurged on the silk pie - so yummy. We would definitely recommend this restaurant - we did eat here twice in three days!

Always enjoy this oasis in the desert. Great food and friendly staff. The usually delicious quail were a tad overcooked, but everything else was excellent. We went 3 nights in a row!

I was expecting the French Bistro that I had dined at several years ago. My mouth was all set for the exquisite beef bouguignon. It wasn’t on the menu. I found out the place was bought out and changed the menu. This change was not reflected on their website. Only the out of date menu was on line. The new management should get that fixed. I did have the pecan crusted pork loin chops with mash potatoes and gravy and asparagus. It was $24.00. A little pricy considering how inexpensive pork is these days. It was, however, excellent. The bartender, Audrey was exceptional and Jared, our waiter, carefully guided us to excellent selections.

We were the first ones there but waited an hour for our food. Waitress failed to check on us so we had to inquire where our food was. Food mediocre at best. Saw the place on a TV show and thought would be good. Probably will not return.

Blue Mountain has earnest good intentions, but just isn’t able to rise above its challenges—limited resources, lack of trained personnel, and isolation. Our caprese salad was swimming in olive oil instead of the proper drizzle it needed. The fish was bland and overdone and the green beans were bland and underdone. Only the peach bread pudding was truly enjoyable. It was a standout. Service was friendly and well-meaning, but also uneven and apologetic. All in all , a disappointment.

I've been to Blue Mountain Bistro a handful of times. Consistently the food is fantastic. This is a little gem in Ft. Davis. What I've noticed is that they struggle with service. Sometimes its fine, other times its mediocre. On this visit, once we were sat, it took more than 10 minutes for any of the wait staff to come to our table. The dining room was only half full at the time, so its hard for me to think they were in the weeds. Nearly the whole wait staff walked by our table multiple times before anyone came to help. Once we did have a server, she was very nice and professional.
