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.

“Tasty artichoke pasta dinner”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

The pasta plate was tasty with just the right amount of artichokes. Pricy for pasta though. Free parking area needs to be clearer, especially for out of towners.

“Disappointing experience”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

After all the very positive reviews on Trip Advisor, my wife and I were really looking forward to our special dinner at this establishment. Instead, we had a very average experience. The food ranged from excellent to below average. My wife said her salmon which was a special that evening was the best she's ever had. My lamb chop dinner was below average as the lamb was tough and overly fatty. The service was efficient, although our waitress was not at all friendly. I got no reaction when I told her it was my wife's birthday.

“Good food but unremarkable”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

The a French onion soup was good, very hot, but not spectacular. The curried chicken salad was fine, but nothing I couldn't do at home. Needed more curry.

“Great food, nice place. ”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

If driving in the area you wouldn't expect to find this great restaurant. You walk through the doors and feel like you are in an upscale area of town. They have a good wine list and great food... We will be back. We sat in the bar area and our only complaint was that it was very warm however the dining area felt nice a cool as we were passing through to leave. Try it you can't go wrong.
