OK so the party of 8 next to our table was noisy to the point of being grossly inconsiderate. It will be better when management develops and employs a technique for courteously but effectively asking such a party to consider that other diners are being affected. We were unable to converse in a volume that reached across our table and... More

friendly staff, French or English speaking, very quaint and cozy, absolutely fabulous mussels! The location is a bit funky and you have to know where it is but once you get there you can eat in or out on the patio.

The restaurant has a great French bistro feel; in keeping with the bistro concept the tables are close together and small. The place was full of conversation when we entered but quieted down during our lunch. We had lunch reservations and waited only 10 minutes for our table ( a very small round bistro table). The inside seating area was... More

Note: this small French café on the corner only serves lunch. For dinner, see the downtown location. We had the harreng aux pommes a l'huile and the moules au roquefort at lunch, both meeting our expectations. The latter featured 24 mussels in a large bowl, a very filling as well as delicious lunch. My herring was delicately flavored and melted... More

Intimate restaurant - we really felt like at a french bistro. Friendly service, delicious food that is very fresh. Great quality. We were there on a Wednesday when Christolph (sp?) was doing a dinner from one of the provinces of France. It was really creative, there was a lot of food and the prices were really fair for how much... More

I had lunch with friends at this small French cafe. It was delicious. I couldn't believe I was in Albuquerque! The service was great as was the food. We sat and chatted and. Hatred and just like in paris, we weren't rushed at all. The escargot were to die for. Great garlic! Mussels in wine and shallots fresh and juicy.... More

The only thing keeping this place open is the feel of possibly being in France. Until you try the food..... All they do is stuff you with bread. We are extremely disappointed. The only non-alcoholic beverage was MILK??

I stopped in for lunch recently and had a salad, wine, and coffee. All I can say is that this place is about the closest thing to a French cafe I have been to in the States. I hope that adequately describes the experience.

P'tit Louis is a superb place to while away an evening with reasonable rouge wine and superb les assiettes such as LE pâté Madison, cinq forages and salads endives au Roquefort

This place is WONDERFUL! It truly feels like a little restaurant from the 30's; almost like you walked into a time warp or onto a movie set! The staff is great, the wine is good basic table wine served in carafes (I'm sure you can get bottles but we have always just gone with the "house") and is VERY reasonably... More
