This was a landmark restaurant for all of us who have lived in ABQ for a long time. It is very sad that it is closing. It was always know for it's amazing steaks, romantic atmosphere and fine drinks. We'll miss it!

Not only is their prime rib the best in town, but the sauteed mushrooms, and the shrimp cocktail are very good too. Been going to Paul's for over 35 years and never ate in the bar until V-Day. Great atmosphere.
