I had never heard of this restaurant! What a shame! Such a warm and cozy setting. Our waitress was very warm and engaging. Everything we had was amazing! From the fresh-baked crusty rolls served with cold butter to the Crepes Suzette and everything in between, we savored every bite! Nice wine selection. It is a small venue, so reservations are a must. Parking free on the street after 6:00 P.M.

It is not often that every dish is excellent. This was our experience at Le Troquet. The french onion soup had deep, rich flavour. The frogs legs were crispy and juicy. They were served over a nice fresh tomato salsa. For entres we had lamb (cooked rare), rabbit over fettuccini, salmon and a seafood mix in mornay sauce. Everything was as it should be. Delicious. The chocolate mousse for dessert was also fabulous.

I came away from here with mixed feelings. The restaurant is a tiny place in downtown Albuquerque (reservations are essential). The escargot and profiteroles were excellent, but the croque monsieur was nothing more than a grilled cheese sandwich with ham. It had not been baked--the bread was merely toasted. Surely a French restaurant can do better. Service is very slow; not necessarily a problem but be prepared for it. Our food did not come out at the same time; one person got his food 20 minutes after the others.

This is the best food in town. Six of us went recently for a celebration. One couple had never been and we're locals. They were overwhelmed and will be back. The pate is exactly as it should be made and presented, the vichyssoise was amazing, French Onion soup incredible, and the Dover Sole dish delicious. The accompanying vegetables were perfectly cooked and complimented each dish. The venue is charming although small. The night we went it was packed and they turned several tables. The wine list is good and our French wine selection was so good we ordered another bottle. We asked for desserts for the table and we had a beautiful Strawberry Chantilly Crepe, Lemon Tart to die for, Chocolate profiteroles with ice cream, and Creme Brûlée. Waitress Michelle was attentive constantly. Every time we go we wish we went more often. We asked if the chef could come out of the kitchen for our applause and the whole restaurant applauded. Bravo Chef John Pierre!
