We went to eat here on a Saturday night. We were the only patrons, and now I know why. To begin with, we were served french bread which was not fresh. I ordered a cheese and fruit plate for my entree. My husband ordered several...More

I was looking forward to trying this place out, and it was quite a disappointment. There were no other diners there when we went, and only one other couple came in before we left. The menu was pretty limited, and my husband's beef bourgignon had...More

I've been to Chez Axel for lunch twice in the last month: once by myself and once with my wife and daughter. Both times everything was excellent. Although they do have a few dinner-style entrées available at lunch, I always get the combo ($12.00), which...More

I went twice in one week...first time with a group. The people who got salads/soup/quiche/crepes were served quickly. Those who ordered entrees--the meal came out 45 minutes later! The Beef Bourguignon was fabulous--melt-in-your-mouth tender, delicious, and the sauce was soooo good! The second time I...More

I've been dining at Chez Axel since 2007. My wife and I had dinner there last night after an interval of several months. I should point out that although I enjoy fine dining and appreciate good food, I am not competent to judge whether cuisine...More

Dill Havarti as part of a cheese tray? Seriously? C'mon. Typical Albuquerque attempt at cosmopolitan fare. They tried to pass tough-as-shoe-leather PORK LOIN as "pork tenderloin." I don't think they even know the difference! No beer or wine...Seriously.

In a rather tired strip mall with old tires piled behind the fence just south of the door, but that should not keep you from a visit. Wonderful food once you make it inside. The lunch special is quite reasonable. I had the quiche and...More

My first thought upon entering was why was there only two tables occupied. It became clear when we found out they still do not have their liquor license after several months and the waiter seemed just as unhappy as we were over this event. My...More

Been coming to this intimate restaurant since the original Parisian owner opened it and named it after his son. It has changed hands a couple of times but not lost the spark with great French renditions at a couple friendly price. Several opportunities to save...More

We went for an early dinner with friends from out of town. Sorry we couldn't show them Albuquerque's culinary prowess. First disappointment was no liquor license. Apparently, the restaurant lost theirs in the renewal process, hopes to get it back ... but alas, we dined...More
