If you love French food this one is for you. The steamed mussels in a garlic wine sauce were delectable. Great wine list and superb service!

Dinner turned into a definite mixed bag for us. The physical plant is a rather plain space lacking any décor to break up the modest sized dining room. The tables are quite close to each other. The lighting is brighter than one may anticipate but the color temperature is excellent. Of course there are nice thick tablecloths and napkins. We... More

I was surprised the ambiance was not as I had expected; we almost decided to leave as soon as we walked in - I was extremely embarrassed that I had taken guests there. It did not match the price charged for the food (which was good) - soiled clothes on the chef and waitress, little knowledge of proper serving etiquette,... More

We were a party of four. Ordered rack of lamb, fish in lemon sauce and a seafood crepe. The food was good but served on overly hot plates. Portions were almost too generous with an abundance of seafood in crepe but very poorly presented. We ordered salads and escargots and didn't have time to finish them before the entrees were... More

The French onion soup to start was divine but the hit of the night was the steak frites! The steak was a perfect juicy medium rare and the fries were homemade and crispy!

Excellent, authentic French food right here in Albuquerque. Delicious, with fresh ingredients, homemade bread, incredible desserts. Prices are *very* reasonable, considering the quality of the cuisine. Highly recommended.

Just learned of this great restaurant from a friend. It is in an unlikely spot. However, after a very early movie a group of us had lunch at this restaurant. It is clean and well lit. Loved decor and art. Service was impeccable. The food devine. Plus a wonderful dessert. Can't wait to go back.

My wife and I had dinner here on a recent weekday evening. It was a spur of the moment decision and we were there pretty early, just shortly after they opened at 5:00PM. We were the only diners the entire time we were there, with the exception of a gentlemen who came in and ordered food to go. While we... More

My husband ate here recently, raved about it and couldn't wait to take me. He was spot on and we now have two favs in the ABQ area. Locally owned and operated by Chef Jean Pierre (who does everything right) this is a neighborhood gem! We both selected seafood entrees that were superbly prepared. The shrimp and scallops were fresh,... More

We previously ate lunch here. The quiche crust was outrageously good. I had two bowls of the French onion soup. So we thought we'd try dinner. We shared the fried oysters for an appetizer ($10). For entrees we had two specials, the mussels in a brandy sauce ($24) and the scallops ($28), with one glass of wine ($11). With tax... More
