“A little bit of paris in downtown Albuquerque”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

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. Merguez sausage panini delicious. Topper off with some French espresso. I would go back here in a new York minute

“NOT WORTH OUR TIME”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

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??

“Worth a Second Try”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

We had dinner at the Nob Hill restaurant on a recent Thursday evening. This is a restaurant you will want to like, despite missteps.

The wine list is small and on the evening we visited, most reds were unavailable owing to a change-over in the list. We were pleased to get a last bottle of Bordeaux, but were displeased when our server broke the cork in the bottle. We aked that the wine be decanted to remove the cork, since a replacement was unavailable and there was nothing comparable on the list. The restaurant did not have any glass container large enough to decant 750 ml, so they decided to carefully pour a first glass, and then decant the remainder into a 500 ml bottle.

Our table wobbled badly.

Our starters were a an endive and roquefort salad - very good, and a special, a rabbit pate - also very good. We would have liked fresh ground pepper, but gave up on getting our server's attention (see wine above).

Our entrees were a duck confit -also very good, and a coq au vin. The coq au vin arrived in an individually sized cocotte, more like a soup than a fricassee. It was quite tasty, but ate best witha spoon. We did get fresh pepper with this course.

We had a very solid chocolate mousse for dessert. Coffee was delicious.

“Very Authentic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

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.
