    We had reservations for 3 at 1145. They were not ready for us and we had to wait between 15-20 minutes. However the manager was very gracious and comped our drinks and 1 dessert to celebrate my birthday. I was very glad for that and appreciative! Unfortunately the server did not mention the brunch special which I think my husband would have liked. I got the regular eggs Benedict, the egg yolks were soft not runny and the hollandaise sauce was not flavorful. My husband had the omelette which he said was ok. My daughter had the grits and shrimp, she liked it. I had the seasonal gallette and it was good except for the crust which was relatively raw. there was a wedding party inside, perhaps that was the issue with the food and seating. I would like to go back, but alone as my husband has no desire to return.

    Hate the wicker backed chairs. Super uncomfortable. Asked for a table without them but got them anyway. Ribeye was very good. Beet gnocci was very plain. Maybe add sliced beets or similar so you actually can taste the beets.

    Brunch was good! If it wasn't hot outside, we would have loved to be on the beautiful patio. My eggs Benedict were really really good. The chicken and waffle special was ok, just a little dense. Beautiful presentation and decor was simple but elegant.

    Highly recommend, the lox and bagel and grilled cheese were delicious! The coffee was weak, but cappuccino was yummy and they served lemon and mint on request with sparkling water (I wouldn't recommend tap water.) The exterior was a little iffy, but misleading. The side garden was lovely, and the interior was beautiful and very clean and bright! This will be my first stop when I'm back in Las Cruces, I would love to try another meal besides brunch!

    The food was good for the most part but we had to send my husbands pork chop back because it was raw in the middle. They were accommodating though. The service left something to be desired. For being an upscale restaurant we had to ask several times for the drinks we ordered and had to ask for our waters to be refilled, plates to be cleared ect.

    Chips were overcooked, fruit compote was too runny to use, there was a hair in my food. This was my first time taking my husband to this restaurant and I was embarrassed at how the food turned out. I was hoping to treat him to a very nice brunch. Maybe it will be better next time.

    Greeted at the door of this lovely bistro by James and attended by Justin and other friendly staff, we sampled a fabulous array of dishes. We enjoyed everything! The Arancini with a beet Parmesan sauce, Mushroom Bisque and Pot du Crème were splendid! Nothing disappointed us and we found the cocktails refreshing. We highly recommend Willow + Blaine for their unusual fare, unique cocktails, thoughtful service and comfortable but lively ambiance.

    Our party of three was greatly impressed with the ambience of the restaurant, the quality of service, the outstanding food and the presentation of food. We all agreed this was our best dining experience in New Mexico and western Texas. We highly recommend this restaurant. It is on the higher end, but if you want to experience a great dining evening, the price is definitely worth it. This is what dining out at an upper end restaurant should be,.

    It was a first time visit for both of us and we were not disappointed. I had been wanting to dine at Willow + Blaine so my anticipation and expectations were high. From the moment I walked up to the door and observed the raised garden beds to the time we departed, the experience was spot on. Great service, wonderful food (I ordered the mushroom bisque and garden salad and my friend ordered a lovely sandwich), with a peaceful atmosphere conducive for friends catching up. Thank you!

    I had high hope for this fine dining establishment since it was so hard to find some upscale food in this quaint little town called Las Cruces. The restaurant did not disappoint. The quail was a standout in turns of presentation and preparation. The seafood pasta while simple tasted great. The filet was tender and 6oz was a perfect size re-enforced that qualify over quantity. I have only two quibbles. On the night of visit while the menu offered a limited 6 entree choices, 2 choices were already sold out. The remaining 4 choices, while excellent in execution, were just too limited. My other issue was that our server took forever to bring drinks and brought a bottle of root beer to my 12 year old without a glass. I also asked about the cheese course and got no reply. However, I found another server was extremely helpful, and the owner stepped in several times to assist our meal.

    Had a great time as always. The food was innovative and tasty, the service was impeccable, and the setting can't be beat. I will always recommend sitting outside on the Patio, however there CAN be flies, especially in the Summer and if it rains a lot. It is just part of Southern NM. I will always recommend a visit to Willow + Blaine.

    Cool place serves high end food good selection of wine and cocktails. My only issue is I made reservation to sit inside then was told we could sit at the bar or outside I had my daughter with me so sitting at the bar I felt would be a little inappropriate and it was about a hundred degrees outside. But they figured it out and found us a table and it was fine. Suggest if you’re having reservation issues don’t tell your customers because we were about to leave.

    I had hoped for a lot but was disappointed. My duck and dumplings were very good, my husbands pork chop was overdone, and my friend who had the vegan dish said it was awful, way too much salt and pepper. We had specifically chosen the restaurant because vegan options are so rare in Las Cruces. The staff were attentive and very nice So service gets a good rating. The acoustics in the place are awful - everything is a hard surface and the noise bounces. Even with the place only half filled I couldn’t hear across the table. We like the idea of this restaurant, the story behind it and the contributions the couple have made to the community - but we won’t be back.

    Steak was very nicely done. Duck seemed overcooked and very small portion. Not so much dumplings included, but little, small triangles of tortillas placed in between small slices of duck. I know that duck is not served in large portions, but this was tiny.

    Great service, great food. We got the pesto grilled cheese and BLT- great if you love tomatoes and balsamic vinegar. Housemade chips were good too. Would have loved some sort of veggies or fruit included with the plate. Disappointed in the pavlova- crust was stale and it was missing the chewy center. Waitress offered another dessert which wasn’t amazing but hit the spot. Will come back for the entrees and ambience- best I’ve experienced in Las Cruces.

    The idea of having a good dinner experience starts with the expectation that food will be good! Our experience at Willow +Blaine was ok. The service was good but the food was not exceptional. I had to send my food back to the kitchen because the chicken was over cooked. My sister-in-law’s comment was “If I know that this was gonna be like I could’ve cooked at home and it would be better” She is a good cook though! I would say they need to improve the quality of the standards of their food.
