REVIEWS OF Artichoke Cafe IN New Mexico

My friends and I went to Artichoke Cafe for dinner. We did not make the reservation because we were a small group of 3 people. We were seated right away at the bar section of the restaurant, which I didn't see it before. It was perfect little booth (hint for those who want to take your date to). For some reasons, this section felt warm so we took off our jackets. We started with, A-hem, steamed artichoke :) it came with three different dipping sauces: tomato-based sauce, garlic-cream, and melted butter. The creamy garlic sauce was the winner for me. The melted butter was surprisingly good as well. It had caught me off guard because I was not really a big fan of dipping anything in butter I ordered the lamb chops with mashed sweet potatoes. It was very delicious! Perfectly cooked to my preferred temperature! The meat was tender and the sweet potato was tasty! They were made in heaven for sure. This is a little gem that I am sure I will visit again with my future date :)

Food was mostly tasty and service good, but we remember it being a bit better in the past. Seems to have lost a bit of its edge, so to speak. Plating for the pork loin was sloppy, crab cakes had too much onion, were cold and had to be sent back so we were a bit underwhelmed.

This is an excellent intimate venue for a special celebration. The food is fresh and the atmosphere is relaxed. Great bar!

Jewell Fritz

It's a nice restaurant with great food. The prices are higher than a lot of restaurants in Albuquerque, but the quality is better and worth it. If you are a wine enthusiast, they offer a great selection. Their happy hour menu was nice. I wasn't planning on stopping in, so I expected a full menu. That's on me for not calling or visiting the website. I had only been there for dinner prior. Overall, great experience, attentive staff, and amazing fries :)

Awful lunch, Ordered the Nicoise salad. Missing the egg, anchovies and eggplant. When they brought the egg, it was undercooked. The tuna was ok, but I doubt there was 2 ounces in total. Server was great, and she went to talk to the manager - he was seated at a table across from us. She approached him twice - he could not bothered to get up and come to the table himself to apologize. I'd suggest you go somewhere else - the Standard Diner is down the road - go there.

Lisa Tanges

Lively atmosphere food was good.

Kathryn King

Exceptional food and service.

Lisa Johnson

Great food. Extremely poor service that time

Terry Collier

Amazing dinner for Valentine's day

Clifton Chilli Club

We had a great time, the executive chef (Martin) looked after us very well and indeed joined us for our fine dining experience. All the chefs came out and presented there creations to us and personally explained the dish. Highly recommended by us although we where spoiled a little as they knew how far we'd come. Thanks.

Darek Duran

Outstanding cuisine!

Cameron Coe

Probably one of the best places we’ve gone for a casual meal. This is the perfect restaurant for either a casual dining experience or a fancy night out. I would diffidently love to come here again! My fiance and I came here for happy hour, we payed $20 for four dishes: a chicken salad, Brussels sprouts, and two plates of ribs. And while everything tasted amazing, I am shocked to say that the Brussels sprouts were my favorite part of the meal.

Petty

So delicious! Yum! Can’t wait to go again.

Joel Becktell

It's a very nice restaurant, and our waiter was good...but I felt there was a weird combination of high-end dining (well-prepared food, fairly expensive dishes) and substandard, barely-professional behavior by front-of-house staff. I'd go back, but I also hope they up their standards to round out the experience.

Adrienne Renee

Love this place, great food and spectacular service!

Smitty Paling

Went here for a drug dinner event, so glad I got a chance to check out Artichoke Cafe! Metered parking is free after 6. What I really liked about this place was how charming and cute it was, you dont get that overwhelming and intimidating feel of a large, pish-posh fancy restaurant, but you still get the 5 star service and meal. This is a cozy and intimate place for a nice dinner out.

Timothy Williams

Excellent restaurant!! The food was amazing and the staff was nice and friendly. Parking was great with someone to direct you where to park and watch over your car. Scallops, beef tenderloin, octopus and cauliflower we're all amazing! The dishes were delicious and I'll certainly go back. Loved this place!!

Tuti baker

Awesome, flavorful food, awesome service.

JoAnne Q

Rafael Armijo

Outstanding grilled bistro steaak Best dessert chocoate truffle torte

Cindy

Went for happy hour. Burgers were a bit rare for us. French fries were tasty. Ribs were good - just a bit overcooked though. Nice atmosphere. Am willing to try dinner.

Vincent Thome

Simple atmosphere. Elegant service. Delicious food. Never disappoints and always amazes. Great for important lunch meetings. Perfect for an intimate date or an evening gathering of friends. Value exceeds prices.

Lawrence S

Great food downtown, if you're looking for something more formal than what abq usually has. Good for a date you want to impress.

MollyMae Farley

Went for a holiday party- took over 2 hours from order to be served. Half of the room was served 15-20 minutes before the other half. Didn't get to stay for dessert because it was going to take another 30ish minutes. Though the meal tasted delicious, I was very disappointed in the service. With so many other dining options in the city, I'll save my money for an experience worth the expense.

Galen Frantz

Really great food and outstanding service!

Will Stotts, Jr.

This is an excellent intimate venue for a special celebration. The food is fresh and the atmosphere is relaxed. Great bar!

Richard Gibson

Really nice. Nice wine list. Nice service. Too much spice with the filet. It was so hot I couldn't finish the steak.

Jewell Fritz

R Zetterlund

Always the best in Albuquerque. Pleasant knowledgable staff, excellent food and beverage. Easy access from Central. Happy hours begin at 2:30...excellent Happy Hour menu.

Raz & Imbri P

We don't head here often (first time in about 10 years for me) because it's a serious fine-dining place with the price-tag to match (a little over $200 for three adults). The experience is worth it, mind you. Between myself, R, and our dining companion, we tried the steak tartare, the appetizer of the day, the lamb rib, the pork chop, the steak tenderloin, and a couple desserts. The steak tartare is tiny, proportioned, no doubt, perfect to match the quail egg that tops the dish. The special appetizer for our visit was much more generous. We had never even imagined the flavor combination of smoked artichoke, crab cake, and duck chicharones... Turns out, that combination is quite amazing. The pork chop and lamb rib were extremely generous portions, while the beef tenderloin is more in line with the controlled portion size I expect from fine dining. Every piece of meat was expertly seasoned to bring out and compliment it's natural flavors, and cooked to perfection. The sides were excellent compliments to the main protein, and all 3 of us were quite pleased. Due to the controlled portion on the steak, we had room for dessert. I can't recall the name of the fruity dessert concoction we ordered, because it was greatly overshadowed by the panna cotta, which was one of the most purely perfect dessert experiences ever.

Deb Kuidis

Service was below average from start to finish. We told the server who seated us that there were three of us, she gave us two menus. I asked for another menu, and never got it. She had to be reminded to bring our drinks 10 minutes after we ordered them. She confused all three of our meal orders. I asked for a dessert menu and we ordered two desserts. Ten minutes later she brought us dessert menus. I told her that we already ordered. We had to remind her what we ordered. She seemed confused the entire time. My siblings commented that they presumed she was high. The service was the worst and most bizarre I have ever experienced, which took away from anything else positive, including the food. I know I can't be the only one that has complained about our server. I provided her name to the restaurant. I would expect this type of service at Village Inn. Bad enough that we won't be back.

k garcia

Delicious! Delicious! Delicious! My daughter and I recently enjoyed our girls night out @ this awesome, wonderful cafe in downtown Albuquerque! The staff was perfectly friendly & professional, the food was out of this world delectable, the ambiance was upscale yet laidback at the same time if that’s even possible lol...such a cool vibe!! We will definitely be back—you should too!

Mary Brallier

We come to this restaurant every time we stay in Albuquerque. This is a farm to table establishment, and the chef is adamant about obtaining the best and freshest ingredients. Any of the options on the menu are top notch. The service is also amazing.

David and Jamie Pederson

Fine local restaurant interesting menu

Sue DeVore

Great lunch choices. I had house made mushroom ravioli. Delic.

Liza Ramírez

Worst place I've ever visited. Food had NO flavor - 4 people, 4 different flavorless dishes. Waitstaff was not the most attentive. Food was ridiculously overpriced. It took me a long time to bother trying this place and I will NEVER try it again. I'm embarrassed that people might think this place represents Albuquerque cuisine in any way.

Emily Flegal

Excellent service, excellent cocktails, and excellent food. A wonderful dining experience. All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed it.

justin maese

Some of the best upscale food in town. As you'd expect, service is on par as well. Their specialty drinks are damn tasty, and you definitely can't go wrong with their martini.

Jason Vick

Fantastic! Exceptional service. Delicious well thought out menu. Will definitely be back again.

Tim Woodward

Very lovely fine dining experience (not too many of those in ABQ). We sat in the lounge which was quiet. I noticed the restaurant side was hustling. Our server was friendly and made good recommendations. Drinks were well mixed and presented. The beef tenderloin was excellent and cooked perfect. The chicken breast was surprisingly out of this world! We'll definitely be back next time we want to celebrate or have a fancy happy hour!

Inglis Reynolds

This is a really nice restaurant, meaning we dressed up for a nice dinner here. I loved the atmosphere and the decor. The food was pretty good too! My only qualm with my meal was that, as someone who LOVES artichokes, we ordered the artichoke appetizer and i felt like i had no idea how to eat it.

Matthew Antinarelli

The ambience and customer service were outstanding. Ordered the market special, shrimp with noodles, and the surf and turf tartar as a starter. Both of which had notes of originality and depth of flavor. My dinner guests ordered the steamed artichoke, unfortunately it was not in its prime and was very fibrous, lacked in flavor, and the raspberry dip does not pair well. Definitely will be back to explore other menu.

Michael Trahan

Great food, great service.

Susan M

Pricey but excellent food, atmosphere, service.

LD Cr

One of Albuquerque’s best restaurants. The location and could be better, but the food makes up for it 10x over. Great courteous service, this place satisfies the taste buds. You won’t be disappointed. A

Donna Engelgau Koslow

I will never go to this restaurant again. We had reservations for Mother's Day only to discover that Artichoke cafe was closed when we arrived. There was no mention on their site that they would be closed on this day. What's more we were asked to confirm the reservation! If that wasn't bad enough, the manager, Shane, tried to blame the mishap on the digital confirmation service, Resy, when I called to tell him what had happened. He said there was nothing he could do. He could have cared less. If this was my business, I would have been mortified and done whatever necessary to try and keep that customer happy. Based on this, I'd say the restaurant is poorly managed. Given that it bills itself as a fine dining experience in Albuquerque you would expect top-notch care and attention, especially when you've been a repeat customer over the years. Friends, there are other, better places to have a fine meal in Albuquerque. I'd recommend Los Pablonas instead. You'll experience excellent food, excellent service, and top-drawer management!

Nick Keith

Service is unbeatable and the food is simply amazing. Not 5 stars because of drink mixup.

john signer-romero

Great food and excellent service. The front room is a bit dated but still very nice.

Sam Williams

Great food presentation was flawless

Valerie Alire

Such amazing food and great service!!

Z Q

I am always impressed with this restaurant. Food is exceptional, staff goes above and beyond. Michael had hosted our holiday party last year, and tonight he was our server. He is wonderful. Hats off to the entire establishment!

Bill Morris

So much fun! Ambiance rules. I feel like i was back in Rittenhouse Square

Shane A. GSD

Oh my gosh it's a very high-end restaurant with excellent cuisine. Prices for dinner anywhere from $35 up to $60 per entree. Now that I live here in Albuquerque New Mexico as talking to myself prior to moving here I would have said that's a definite must do while in Albuquerque.

Cristiano Nisoli

Excellent service, very good food, very nice location, pricey.

M

I want to rave about the divine scallops and lamb but most already know that it's impossible to receive less than world class cuisine here! I really must give equal credit to our server for our wonderful experience. She was perfect. Yes, perfect. A couple weeks have gone by so I'm regretful in not being able to recall her name but I'll know her by her grace, soft smile, and quick step. Thank you to everyone who made our night delightfully unforgettable!

Fred Snoy

Great food, great waitstaff, Abq at its best!

Angie Weinberger

Such a great find in Albuquerque. Excellent service and wonderful food. I love that they split the plates in the kitchen that I shared with my friend and didn't charge extra for that service. I highly recommend the fried polenta appetizer, the beet salad (crunchy beets, delicious!) And the lamb with artichoke-parsnip puree. The bread is maybe the only average food we had. The restaurant is also very cute and not noisy. Which isxa rare find these days.

Julia Knight

A delicious celebratory treat. Sharing plates for four courses allowed a sampling of many and still plenty of food!

Rick Bridges

Great food, great service, but the dinner was very slow. Lots of Xmas parties, so it might be better when it is not busy

B. Torgerson

Great food. Great service. FANTASTIC DRINKS. A simple menu with wonderful food. The Calimari was cooked to perfection. The onion soup was so savory. The baby green salad with pears and blue cheese was AWSOME. I could eat here everyday if I lived in Albuquerque. I'll be back.

Alex

Great food and very friendly staff. They need to grill those artichokes instead of just steaming them.

Jet Oman

Great food! Happy hour is 2:30-6pm and a great deal!

Oscar Gutierrez

Food is always great. Very comfortable and welcoming atmosphere for either a casual or special night out.

preston zucker

Quiet, elegant with an excellent menu making the commonplace special. The fish and chips were the best this side of Sausalito.

Láralyn Mowers

Good, but extremely limited vegetarian options. By limited, I mean exactly one entree option (photo) and a handful of appetizers. Not the most creative, not the most flavorful, but it was good.

Michelle Walters

Superb food and staff

Anderson Barbosa

The food was excellent as expected (ordered French Onion soup and the Steak Frites dish). Service was also very good. The disappointing factor was how loud the place was. It was hard to have a conversation over all the noise...

angie riemann

We had an unfortunate experience at the Artichoke Cafe. The kitchen was extremely slow and when we asked the manager about our meal, he said he was "Taking the waiter's gratuity off the bill." We of course felt sorry for the waiter and tipped him generously. The food, when it arrived, was good, but we will not return. Throwing the guy with the least authority, and who makes the least money under the bus is not acceptable. Angie

Ava Bernardini

Disappointed, the artichokes are where served raw and service was slow, took my Mom for her 70th Birthday, very disappointed.

Johanna Hunnie

One of my favorite restaurants in Albuquerque. The chief is inventive while still offering comforting fav dishes. Decor is clean line and modern.

Inglis Reynolds

This is a really nice restaurant, meaning we dressed up for a nice dinner here. I loved the atmosphere and the decor. The food was pretty good too! My only qualm with my meal was that, as someone who LOVES artichokes, we ordered the artichoke appetizer and i felt like i had no idea how to eat it.

Slava B

Excellent choice for gourmet upscale food. Scottish salmon was delishious. Other folks in out group ordered steak frites which was great. Staff was very attentive and polite.

Anna Borja

If you go to one restaurant in ABQ, this is probably it. I feel like Artichoke embodies everything about this city, good and not so good. First off, many here comment on the prices here. The reason is for the pricing is sourcing. These guys source local and clean whenever possible, and the meals are played nicely and are pretty innovative as far as food here goes. You'll not likely find the green chile smothered fare others slap down, call New Mexican food, and call a day (though in all fairness, that's pretty tasty too) but more likely find some very fresh local veggies from one of the csa's in the valley, with a clean meat pairing and sauces and seasonings based in unique and local herbs. This is all to say, great stuff! Their happy hour specials are a great and more inexpensive intro to the flavors of Artichoke Cafe. Their bar features many excellent local and craft beers, and great wine selection as well. The bar is also great if you're not wanting the "fancy" experience of the restaurant; it's very chill and I even bring my kids in there, the staff is great. Again, a must-try when in ABQ.

Robert Christopher

Lovely ambiance, friendly and knowledgeable wait staff, and delicious food.

Peter Baker

We arrived with a reservation and were essentially turned away. The rudest personnel we have ever encountered. Recommend against anyone going there.

Michael Mitchell

The food was adequate, but the service was not good. I would not recommend this place.

Richard Hassell

It was a nice little restaurant in downtown Albuquerque the food was phenomenal I suggest anyone who's in the Albuquerque New Mexico area and they need to visit this place

Chad Suggs

What a gem in downtown Albuquerque. Food is superb, atmosphere is enjoyable and prices are reasonable for the quality. Would be great place for a date night with your significant other.

John Krantz

Not great Over priced Really expecting more after reading reviews Would not recommend

Natasha Combs

As a chef and someone new to the area, I was excited to try the Artichoke after looking at the menu and reading reviews. While not a bad place, this is certainly not a fine dining establishment. The seating is much too tight for an intimate setting. The food was just okay. We waited almost an hour between our appetizers and entrees (on a slow Monday night). We ordered the roasted garlic app and received unspreadable raw garlic. My filet, while well seasoned, was over cooked. My husband’s steak was severely under seasoned and over cooked. His frites were cold, soggy and under seasoned. On the whole, it was very underwhelming. I doubt we will be back.

Matthew Antinarelli

The ambience and customer service were outstanding. Ordered the market special, shrimp with noodles, and the surf and turf tartar as a starter. Both of which had notes of originality and depth of flavor. My dinner guests ordered the steamed artichoke, unfortunately it was not in its prime and was very fibrous, lacked in flavor, and the raspberry dip does not pair well. Definitely will be back to explore other menu.

Chynna Comer

Had our company Christmas dinner here and everyone enjoyed it. The food and staff were awesome. They have a great beer and wine selection as well. Highly recommend!

DVS1 Chicago

Quite possibly the best food I've had in New Mexico. Gourmet all the way.

Ynette Colyer

Great service! Great food! Great ambiance. Our server was so patient with all our questions, and she knew all the answers! The craft cocktails are also great.

Logan Dumaine

Best in the city. Service is amazing. Food is delicious.

Jeff Dahl

The ambience was very nice and we enjoyed the evening. I thought my plate was somewhat bland and pricey. For the price I would look for another high end restaurant with tastier food.

Elizabeth Robertson

Service was greatly lacking. My dish, the beef tenderloin, was very good. However, my husbands pork tenderloin was under cooked. Service; marginal AT BEST. Long periods of waiting. Dirty dishes left for long periods of time. When the Our servers table side manner was short and hurried. 180.00 tab for two people. Overall, having eaten at restaurants in town with similar price points, there are definitely better experiences to be had.

Erin Urban

Absolutely outstanding! Such a wonderful combination of flavors and exquisitely presented. One of the best Sea Bass dishes I've had and the Lemon Meringue dessert was divine! Excellent staff and a great experience - I will be back for certain!

Gloria FERNANDEZ

great experience, the food was great. the service was prompt and I really liked the ambiance

Stefanie Milam

The reputation is accurate. Definitely a great place! Staff and service was great, place is elegant and hip. I came for lunch and had the steamed artichoke and one of the crepe specials (salmon with Chile cream sauce). They were EXCELLENT!

Noanie

The staff was lovely, food somewhat uneven...

Shawn McConkey

Food is outstanding. Service is excellent. Ambience is very good.

Ingrid Hamblin

I was very impressed. Staff was well dressed, and very willing to help. Very very pleasant. Food was excellent. Very well put together establishment.

dick apachito

To get good parts

Jacki Farrell

Wonderful experience. The food, drinks and service were all exceptional!

Dennis Garcia

The food, service and ambience was excellent. I will definitely go back.

Rich Spangenberg

Very sharp and simple place for lunch. The chili soup was a great side if you like a little heat. Wait staff very attentive. The bread basket was quite a treat. For a white linen experience the price was reasonable.

Margaret Connealy

The food, the atmosphere, the staff were all excellent. All was perfect.

Linda Foy

Disappointed. Ordered $12 vegan salad. It arrived missing 1/2 ingrediants. They remade, still missing major ingrediant. They deducted $3 because the kitchen was out of ingrediant. Bread assortment was good. Service while they were busy at lunch was ok, not great.

Cynthia Staples

Nice happy hour... Good food and drink specials

Rana Tamraz

Great food! One of the best restaurants in Albuquerque

Rasha Waheed, M.D.

Ok two times I order steaks and they manage to bring me chicken instead :(

Liz Sanchez

I had the beef tenderloin. It was excellent

Heather Jackson

I had always been curious about them but hadn't gone until we were there that night for a drug company dinner. I was definitely impressed with the food and my husband said he was wanting to go back when we could see the full menu.

Madi

Jacob was a perfect waiter and their dessert was worth the trip!

aubree wharepapa

Amazing food! The signature artichoke is weird..starts with a whole atichoke, ends with a mess and feeling like a savage. Good thing the lights are low.

Jeff Dahl

The ambience was very nice and we enjoyed the evening. I thought my plate was somewhat bland and pricey. For the price I would look for another high end restaurant with tastier food.

Tim Abeyta

Never been there.

Isaac Diaz

Amazing place love the food and service

wg K

Great food

Mark Kielbaso

Nicely prepared food for a relaxing dinner!

Dennis Boesen

The Artichoke Cafe is one of those rare places for which you can take a guest or make a recommendation and be sure that the recipient will be pleased. It has a simple 1-page menu that varies a bit, but there is always something yummy for everyone. They have several appetizers (including an artichoke, of course), several salads, a couple of soups, a vegetarian dish (often a type of ravioli), sea food, chops, steaks and more. The service is always competent and pleasant. Good wine list. It's moderately upscale, but not outrageously priced: typically $20 to $35 for an entree. It's a real favorite of ours.

Elise Jackson

Everyone at Artichoke was intent on our dining enjoyment. The bartender introduced us to 2 new cocktails at Happy Hour. Our waiter made suggestions and knew wines to go with the meal. The food was delicious. The place was crowded but we never lacked for service.

Luke Disko

Chef Martin has done an outstanding job with the menu!

Erin Urban

Absolutely outstanding! Such a wonderful combination of flavors and exquisitely presented. One of the best Sea Bass dishes I've had and the Lemon Meringue dessert was divine! Excellent staff and a great experience - I will be back for certain!

Michael Neubauer

Excellent food and service, highly recommend Ed for special occasions. Priced accordingly but not too high.

Angela Peery

Terrific beef tenderloin, fried cauliflower app, and cocktails. Great service.

Silly Dee last

Delicious! I always look forward to dining there.

Todd Clark

Delicious food, attentive service in a warm atmosphere!

mad zax

Fine dining with excellent flavorful dishes and daily chef specials. Great service in a comfortable location. Beef stroganoff special was outstanding and my guests steak was perfect. Nice presentation all dishes. Parking is mostly across the street but there is an attendant. Of course you will pay a little more but...you get what you pay for.

Rozanna Martinez

The best fine dining restaurant in the city. From its amazingly affordable three course Wine Dinner Wednesdays to its impecable new menu and astounding cocktails and wine offerings combined with its attentive service, I am over the moon.

Becky Lee

Wednesday wine dinners at Artichoke are very fun and the food is good.

Susanne M

This was a birthday meal for my daughter and she chose the place. The service was outstanding without being cloying. I didnt hear any complaints about the food from my three guests. My caesar salad, which I could not get with chicken, was unassuming and bordered on tasteless. They had dessert, I had tea. All told, without the two bottles of wine that my other daughter paid for, the bill was just under $200.00.

reuben preut

An interesting experience, we came for a private event and we're impressed with the food. The four course meal started with fresh baked bread and whipped butter then onto a carrot and red bell pepper soup or garden salad with balsamic vinaigrette, bistro steak Shepard's pie, chicken crepe or eggplant sandwich with fries for entrees and vanilla custard or chocolate torte for the finale.

Victoria Handfield

Great restaurant! Delicious food, excellent service! I've been there twice and will go again.

Tom Nestrick

Place was alright, actually went for the artichokes which were less than impressive. Not really seasoned with anything and could have been steamed another 3 or 4 minutes.

Rose Velasquez

This is an upscale Restaurant with excellent service and excellent food. It’s a little on the pricey side but would be a great place to have a romantic dinner. The menu changes in options are always delicious. It’s in downtown in the parking can be tricky but they offer parking across the street at Farina and a parking attendant

Gideon van de Vyver

Food was really good and done perfectly to order. Had a nice atmosphere, not overly loud, but atleast humming.

Nathan Pacheco

Very great place to eat and dine in very warming friendly people that work there they do the best they can to accommodate and make people feel comfortable and well taken care of from the first moment of walking in the door, they are very open and have great personalities and customer service is phenomenal. I love being there chatting eating having a couple drinks no matter the occasion ill stop by anytime because this place will no question be one of the better experiences you'll have dining that's for sure. Hope I helped.

Andres Rosales

Seated, and no service for 20 minutes. The server didn’t apologize, another 10 minutes for a glass of water... finally approached by the server (2nd time) “Happy Hour ends in a couple of minutes, if you’d like to order a drink”... What a waste of time!

Jonathan Miller

Consistently fine dining.

Ricky Mok

Foods are just okay, but take quite long to have them on the table, with reservation, took us about two hours to finish the meal. That's not too bad, but! It was only at 6:00pm, the dish shows on the menu sold out?, the server didn't even know until some time after?. Not very well managementship. Disapointed!

Brian McIlvaine

Great food. Good service.

Cristi Garcia

Menu was small and uncomplicated but the service was slow

D.L. Horton

Definition of "casual elegance" dining. Food was absolutely amazing. Service attentive. Sure to return.

Melisa Gaspar De Alba

The best dinner I have had in a very very long time. Tried 10 dishes with our group and dessert. The chefs are amazing the service was great! Definitely try it.

Assaf Rezoni

Great food, great service. A bit pricy, but it's worth it.

Dora Simons

I would go again ❣️

Ernesto Sanchez

Great food!

Sibin Stephen

Quiet little place with a a good ambiance

Sara Sanchez

This place never disappoints. Had the rack of lamb with sweet potatoes. Fabulous food with a fabulous wait staff.

Kevin Oleary

Wife likes it alot

Courtnie Clemens

I dream about their risotto! The scallops were also incredibly mouthwatering. The overall dinning experience was excellent! Their signature artichoke was alright, but the sauces were insanely tasty. I enjoyed the tartare and crab cakes as well. Can't wait to go back next time I am in ABQ.

Lively Mgmt, LLC

Recently held an event at this venue and was thrilled with the OUTSTANDING service. Had an issue with tech and staff provided additional adapter cord needed for setup (plus had numerous people swing by the room to help brainstorm ideas). End the end, Bradly came to the rescue! Timing was on-point (AND staff was able to effectively accommodate many changes in program flow, including larger than expected turn out), F&B was stellar, and the staff made the process, from start to finish, not only pleasant, but fun. We even ran late and our waitress Denise stayed behind (after hours!) to finish serving us, even through the check was taken care of and she could have left. ABOVE and BEYOND customer service. Shane, thank you for the quality management of last night. See you again soon!

l w

from someone who works in the industry I normally wouldn't do this but this was the worst full dining experience I've ever had. We were forgotten about more then once. We seemed to have issues getting wine to our table. Waitress ordered us the wrong salad and then tried to lie and say it was a case when it was a house. 2 hours after we got there I got up and asked for my ticket. They boxed the entrees up and took them off of our ticket but when we got home entrees were inedible. To top it off on the way out the door hostess asked when I was due!!! I am not pregnant nor do I look pregnant. Bill was still over 100 dollars and we got taco cabana on the way home. First and last time there.

Super small portions for the price. Ordered the Steak frites without blue cheese. Steak came out with blue cheese so I sent it back. Kitchen rinsed it off and sent it back out as an attempt to “fix” the problem but there was still blue cheese in the grains. Disingenuous and low quality.

Went here this past weekend for the first time & all I can say is I have a new favorite restaurant in Albuquerque. Everything was exceptional from the moment we walked in, the hostess was accommodating to our table request, our server was professional, knowledgeable & friendly. The food was outstanding, I like to cook & a lot of times when I go out I leave saying "I could have made that better at home", we'll not at artichoke...great job guys keep up the good work!

We prefer the mixologists in the bar, but there is nothing but perfection with every moment you spend here.

Abe Gurule

Excellent food, amazing service. Higher end dining to remember.

Russ Jarek

A favorite for high-class but not pretentious dinner. Great wines; ask for their cellar wine list if you have the means.

Luc Guglielmi

Pros: excellent food, great ambiance for a business meeting. Fast and efficient service. Cons: location( don’t walk at night from downtown to the restaurant, very iffy neighborhood with homeless). Little pricey, waiter was snobbish but couldn’t answer a very basic question on one of their champagne.

This restaurant provides a consistently great dining experience. The food and service were wonderful, each and every time. It is definitely upscale, yet, you feel comfortable in everyday attire. I highly recommend this place.

Jesse Samuel

Nice place to dine on a date night.

Janet Murray

Eggplant sandwich packed flavor and seasoning. Service was good.

Mary McWilliams

Wonderfully delicious scallops. The apple pie for dessert was hard and dry. The fried cauliflower and calamari were fine as appetizers. The cocktail drinks were excellent as was the service. Thanks.

My friend and I went there for dinner on a Thursday night; we were seated right away. The restaurant was about 1/3 full. Although we waited nearly 10 minutes for our server to come over, everything else was great. We'll definitely be back.

Robert Tapscott

Great interesting food and very good service.

Kristin Donadeo

Service was spot on and so professional. The food is fresh and has a lot of variety. There is parking for free right across the street so you dont have to pay.

Jason Mesta

Great food, great staff!

Marco Nunez

Man, best happy hour In Burque, hands down. Sophisticated cocktails and an appetizer menu loaded with flavor. This place is a gem. It’s chill environment, with a professional staff, elevates the experience beyond most places. If you live in Burque or just passing by, drop by and see for yourself. Chido!

The caprese salad was outstanding, and the ravioli superb!

Kalenah Moore

We enjoyed our dinner out here. Nice place they we have been meaning to go for a while. It was a special occasions, so we wanted somewhere a bit more upscale. The waitress was kind and helpful. My biggest complaint is the amount of food for the high prices. It was very good, we got the ravioli and the steak frietes. But the steak was small with a larger portion of fries for quite a lot. The ravioli was very good, but again, I don't believe that the price was justified and I don't think we will be going back.

Antonio Martinez

The food was delicious. It could have had more spice for my taste but the lamb was the best I’ve had for a very long time. It melted in my mouth. They seemed slightly understaffed tonight but the staff was very accommodating and knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. I will definitely come back again.
