    There is nothing more romantic than sharing a chocolate strawberry crepe from a delicate French restaurant.

    La Crepe was recommended by our hotel. We came in a little late and had a marvelous lunch. My wife had the Quiche of the day and I had the sandwich special that was Brie and Ham. Wow! What a romantic lunch . Cost $25.00!

    La Crepe Michel serves exquisite old-world cuisine that is authentic, like the fare made by my own mom, a Walloon (Francophone) Belgian. The marinated seafare was succulent, the asparagus soup subtle, and the mouse au chocolat delicate. Ms. Claudia is a first-rate chef, and la Crepe Michel has my highest recommendation. /x/ Armand (Tucson), 7 October 2017

    We stumbled on this place while shopping in Old Town. It's in the back of a small arcade on San Felipe Street. Old Town is often hectic, but this place was just far enough off the beaten track to be tranquil. My wife and I wanted a light meal, so we split both the special sandwich and dessert. The special sandwich was made with the same delicious hot bread that they bring out when you are seated. Delicious! The Crepe David was devine, a thin, delicious crepe with melted Nutella and vanilla ice cream. We like Southwestern food, but this French diversion was a nice break.

    That's the extent of my French, but this place should be on your "to do" list if you like good food. Claudie is wonderful.

    The Salmon in Champagne sauce is very good as was the chilled soup of the day. The tough issue here was the inefficient and slow service. It took forever to order and even longer to get our meals. When our food did come, Some of the orders were mixed up. Appetizers were not served together leaving some of our party eating while others waited. The wine service was as if we were in a truck stop, no taste given to see if the bottle was corked and the wine glasses filled to the brim. Maybe this was our waiters first night on the job.

    This is a french oasis in a vast desert of southwestern dining. Excellent service and food. Comprehensive traditional french menu includung sweet and savory crepes, quiche, croque monsieur and madame, trout almondine, steak frites, etc. I had the seafood crepe which was in a delicious sherry cream sauce, then the chocolate crepe for dessert. Yum! The only disappointment was the cafe au lait. Hope to go back for dinner.

    My wife and I had enjoyed Le Crepe Michel on our first visit to Albuquerque 20 years ago, and on a recent trip we decided to return. It was a disappointing meal. When we visited 20 years ago the interior courtyard...the one with a tree growing..was light filled. Now the skylight/glass ceiling is dirty and covered in debris. The restaurant as a whole seems much shabbier than I recall. The evening was warm, and inside the restaurant it was stifling...something to bear in mind when considering eating here. The brie en croute was quite good, but really much too large for an appetizer unless shared between two people, which we weren't told about. Our waiter was unenthusiastic, and disappeared for long stretches of time.....we waited for water until a different waiter came to our rescue. The menu of crepes was terribly short...despite the name of the restaurant, most of the dishes are just generic French. The food was OK...not bad, but not at all special. Certainly it was a long way below what we have experienced in France, although I suppose given that the restaurant is 5000 miles from France that isn't too surprising.The bill for the meal with wine was about $100, which seemed a poor value for money. I would suggest you go elsewhere.

    Most every time I go to Albuquerque a trip to La Crepe is on my agenda. LOVE the feel of this unique eatery. Relax and enjoy some great French food right in the heart of Old Town

    This place is a gem. I've been coming here for years. Everything is absolutkey delicious but I have a hard time straying from the Belgium endive salad and a cup of French onion soup. Everytime I come to visit Albuquerque I run to La Crepe Michel. Such a special place.

    Off one of Oldtown's quaint brick courtyards, you will wander into La Crepe Michel, a charming French restaurant that can be crowded and cozy on a Christmas Eve excursion, but laid back and intimate on a weekday lunch outing. Previously we went there with an out-of-town world traveler who labelled the delicious lunch as "truly a taste of France, with the best cappuccino I've ever had in the States." With choices of quiche, salad and a simple but deep-flavored soup, my companion was totally satisfied on that occasion. Mushroom crepes far exceeded my expectations, and I wanted to return for dinner because of that savory memory. This time I opted for onion soup, and never again will I order that soup from another restaurant as it would inevitably not live up to Michel's version (unless I went to France again)! Crusty cheese heaven crowning richly flavorful bouillon. My sister had the Salade Niçoise (she took half home for the next day's lunch) and the extremely fresh house salad was satisfying for me. As an almost vegetarian, the asparagus crepes hit the spot for me, while my sister, who inevitably orders hamburgers wherever we go, raved about the Crêpe au Boeuf Bourguignon (had to look that up)! I can hardly wait to return for much this summer!

    Excellent all around. The place is not huge, but has two nice sized dining rooms and they were able to accommodate our party of 8 with advanced reservation. Friendly greeting and very good service throughout our visit. Split the check accurately and without fuss. The menu is amazing - much more than the crepes, there were amazing specials. I was here for dinner with colleagues on a Weds night. We started with the Brie en croute and Prince Edward Island Mussels with fries. The brie had a nice amount of salad with a mustard vinaigrette and some wonderful berry jam. Everyone loved their dinner. I had the special chicken in peanut sauce with harissa hot sauce on the side over rice - wonderfully tasty. One of us had the ratatouille crepe and it was one of the best I have tasted. Dessert included a prickly pear Charlotte, chocolate mouse and some coffee - again everything was excellent. Very good selection of wines and before/after dinner drinks. Having traveled quite a bit in France and as someone who eats French food often, I was delighted to find such well done, close to authentic food in Albuquerque. It's a bit hidden down the end of an alley of shops, but worth finding. Could not have been happier with our meal and experience. Merci La Crêpe Michel!

    One room has a tree growing in it. The food was very good, the atmosphere was lovely sort of rustic In a town with tons of very good Mexican food it's a lovely change of pace. We enjoyed the escargot and there are so many delicious crepes to choose from savory and sweet.

    Don't let the permanent crepe menu scare you. They have specials every night, I think, and the one I had was heaven. It was of filet of beef, huge, cooked perfectly, and with a sauce that could have made shoe leather edible, but was on a perfectly cooked steak instead. Scalloped potatoes and vegetables cooked perfectly. I am admittedly a meat and potatoes man, and I had to leave some of the accompaniments in order to eat all the steak, which was too good to leave.. I was even too full to use the bread to sop us the sauce. If I ever return to Albuquerque, this is where I will be for dinner.

    We brought my brother here for a birthday lunch. All were quite happy with their crepes, but the carrots and green beans served as the side dish did not excite us. Savory crepes are listed on the menu and are not made to order, so each person ordered a different one and shared. No disappointments. Crepe aux Champignons was our favorite. Service was very good. Consider this for a leisurely lunch. You are not going to get out in 45 minutes.

    Great food, not just crepes, although the savory one I had was fabulous. Very reasonably priced, including bottles of wine. Wish I had saved room for dessert!

    If you're tired of the ubiquitous Mexican fare you will be delighted with this tiny gem of a restaurant. Its a bit out of the way but so worth the search. The wait staff is welcoming , efficient, knowledgeable and ready with helpful suggestions. The food is reasonably priced and divine! Seafood is cooked perfectly, the mussels were superb and the accompanying sides were delicious as well. Highly recommend!

    This is a quaint French cafe tucked into a corner off San Felipe Street, about a block from the middle of Old Town. Service was great and food was delicious. The Crepe aux Champignons sounds as if it might be heavy, but was made with a white wine to make it lighter. Absolutely declicious.

    This restaurant is located in Old Town down a small walk-way. Have eaten dinner here multiple times. The ambiance is casual and the great food has a northwestern France slant. The service good and polite. I recommend this restaurant.

    This restaurant has been in Old Town for many years. It is quaint and has an excellent menu. Service is great also. It is a nice alternative to NM food in Old Town.

    A couple of weeks ago, I was wandering around Old Town and noticed this place. The menu looked very interesting and so coordinated with some friends for a lunch out. We all started with a cup of the soup of the day - red cabbage. It was a gorgeous shade of lavender and was delicious. Everyone ordered something different as their entree and everyone was very happy with their choice. A crepe, a quiche, and a torte. Each came with some beautiful and tasty glazed carrots. Just a warning - the crepes are substantial! Our server was great - refilled drinks, answered questions, checked on us. We're going back soon to start working our way through the menu.
