As great as if not Better than the French Bistros in France

Had a red eye flight to NYC and dined at this fabulous restaurant. Tiny yet comfortable. A REAL french menu, Real French Chef/owner, good prices and wonderful food.

Though just off the great Nob Hill Central Avenue cluster of restaurants, it is conveniently located to my favorite area to eat in Albuquerque. The owner is guaranteed to make your eating experience entertaining with his various quirks. I love mussels and the have a variety of mussel tissues, all of which are fantastic.

For anyone looking for authentic French bistro cooking, this is the place to go in Albuquerque. Escargots, duck confit, croque monseiur, quiche, an assortment of cheeses, and every Thursday, oysters flown in from the east coast. No pretense, just good, honest cooking in a lovely little restaurant. As someone with a second home in France, I can say that THIS... More

I chose to celebrate my birthday with a lunch yesterday at P'Tit Louis. It failed on so many levels. For some reason they only had one man doing everything. We did not see another employee during our entire 2 hour lunch. The man was nice enough but there was a language barrier (he spoke Spanish I think) which was difficult... More

What a delightful place! It is so similar to the little bistros I visited in France 25 years ago. The food was outstanding. I had the salmon special and hubby had a filet. Both were fabulous. Alex, our waiter was great. We appreciated the yummy chocolate cake we received to take home. Definitely will return anytime I am in Albuquerque!

Saturday night at P'tit Louis was a joy. Front doors wide open, everyone in high spirits as part of Nob Hill Summerfest. Exuberant Christof (owner) treats his clientele, those he knows and new acquaintances, with kindness & care -- service at it's best. An intimate, warm restaurant that sweeps you away from the mundane, typical restaurant cuisine and atmosphere. Your'e... More

After having the amazing mussels in Brussels, Belgium a few years ago, I have been searching for the same experience in the Southwest. It has been a very disappointing journey to say the least. But , voila! here in humble Albuquerque where one could least expect it, amazing mussels...French style. C'est ce bon! The house rouge vin was very good,... More

This intimate bistro provides a taste of Paris in Albuquerque. Previous delicious dinners brought us back. On our most recent visit, my wife and I shared an endive with roquefort salad and then sampled mussels marinieres and the haddock special, all perfectly cooked and delightfully served. The wine list is modest, but is well chosen and provides excellent value. Service... More

While myslef and a co-worker were traveling on business in Albuquerque, we decided one night to just go out to Knob Hill and eat dinner. No place in mind, no plan. We had seen sveral places along Central, but they looked really busy. So in the process or turning the car around and going around the block, our Jedi skills... More

I've always wanted to go to this place and we just did for our 39th wedding anniversary. Saturday lunch of moules and trois fromages. The food was delicious and the ambiance delightful, but the service was beyond compare. Alex treated us like royalty! I can't wait to go back again and again.
