Description: The Artichoke Cafe was reopened in 1989 by Pat and Terry Keene. Pat, who was formally trained in New York City, is executive chef and Terry has 30 years experience in restaurant management. Their dedication to the best in food, wine, and service has made this 120 seat restaurant one of Albuquerque's finest dining spots. Its downtown location on Route 66 in the Historic Huning Highland/EDO District, cozy modern decor and rotating art exhibits add panache and charm to its ambience. The food is a mix of French, Italian, and creative American, using only the finest ingredients.

I live in Albuquerque and have eaten here a few times for lunch. The service is always good, the restaurant has some lovely art and the food is good. They serve a bread basket which is delicious and their chicken sandwich is very nice. However, the chef salad was the smallest entree serving I have ever had. Especially for the price, I expected a decent sized salad with lots goodies, but it was so small that it looked like a "side" salad. It was a good salad but come on Artichoke Cafe, you can do better.

It has been so successful it has expanded into the space next door.
The menu continues to improvise and the service is excellent.
Plus, there is a good selection of local wines. Reserve or go early.

We were starving by the time we found this restaraunt and expected efficient service. Artichoke met our expectations graciously .The apple and blue cheese salad was what you would expect from a top class restaraunt,the ravioli entre was the best I have ever taxed,and the 6oz steak was done to perfection. Plus the French fries,were fantastic.
