    Everything is good if you don't mind too much salt on your food, something that could be easily corrected if we let them know!!! Most people prefer lower salt, we can add more if necessary. I had the steak sandwich which was why I am complaining about the salt. The Beef Burgundy is also too salty, I stopped ordering it. In general I love french food so I'll continue to try different things. I hope they get my message about the salt.

    First time for me. My son has been several times. I wish the people of El Paso would seek out restaurants like this one like in big cities. This will definitely be one of my favorite go to restaurants.

    I visited with my girlfriend. The food was really good. The service was attentive, helpful and knowledgeable about the food. It is a nice ambiance as a couple or a group of friends. Walking distance to other places in the growing down town area.

    DID NOT Enjoy the Food. The appetizer was very greasy. The dinners tasted as if the beef had gone bad. the duck was very tough and just too hard to eat. The pasta was overcooked and mushy. Service brought the food to the table for one us and a few minutes later the other. We left with our meals uneaten. Don't normally leave a terrible review but felt it necessary in this case.

    This is a lovely restaurant. It has the feel of an old Paris bistro. The service is impeccable and the menu is quite interesting and varied. I had the tea-smoked duck which was delicious. My friend had the rosemary penne with Gorgonzola and prosciutto which was delightful. The portions were generous, the ambiance is relaxed and I wished I was hungry enough to order another dinner.

    Usually when I visit restaurants multiple times, I find myself ordering the same thing over and over again. However, every time I visit the Pot, I try something different almost as a challenge to see if I ever leave disappointed. That hasn't come close to happening yet, aside from them not having the same soup I loved on my previous visit. But the different and unique offerings are what keep me going back. I've also managed to turn it into my parents' favorite place to have dinner before a show. Always looking forward to the next time!

    Food was excellent! Service was ok. Our waiter could have come by a bit more often to refill our drinks and ask if we needed anything. Right as soon as we were taken to our table we were informed that several items from the menu were not available. Overall, it didnt affect us too much, just our appetizer wasnt available. Aside from this, everything else was great and my wife and I had a pleasant dinner.

    I was really disappointed. We went on a advertised jazz night that was supposed to have drink specials. There were no specials and the recommended cocktails were strange concoctions that had no appeal. I got the fish and chips. Obviously the oil hadn’t been hot enough to cook either the fish or the fries since both were limp. I guess that’s a risk here if you are one of the first tables of the night eating pre-theater. My companion got the lamb burger. While cooked medium, it was extremely dry. The waitress seemed inexperienced and kept asking the manager?/Head waitress for guidance, but that lady didn’t appear to be interested. Altogether ok, but nothing special to entice me to ever go back.

    This place was right around the corner from where we were spending the night. The appearance is as much bar as restaurant and one woman was the hostess, bartender and waitress. She was great at all three. My date had the ratatouille sandwich with onion rings and I had the fish and chips. Excellent food. A couple of Texas golden ales rounded out an excellent meal. Very nice indeed.

    Overall disappointing. Had been once before about 2 yrs ago. It was a much better experience then. The dinning room was run down, crumbs on chairs and table felt sticky. Food was ok, didn’t know how to make a wine cocktail and martini was skimpy. There were only 2 other diners at the time. My friend had Steak and Frites I had Salad Nicoise. Steak a bit undercooked for medium, salad was large and fresh.

    My husband and I were traveling in the El Paso area and staying downtown. We found this restaurant just blocks from our hotel and what a lovely surprise it was! The restaurant is located in a historic building and is nicely remodeled. The service was prompt and gracious - we enjoyed our friendly server. The wine and spirits selection was ample. But by far the best part of our visit was the incredibly delicious food. Everything we ordered just couldn't have been better. I ordered the Caesar side salad with my fettucine alfredo while my husband ordered the beef bourguignon after an appetizer of hummus and naan. The salad had the perfect amount of dressing - I don't like my lettuce drowned in dressing - and topped with perfectly seasoned handmade croutons. We ended our meal with a shared creme brulee that was so delicious I had to order another for just myself! We could not have asked for a better dining experience. This was our favorite restaurant during our nearly week long stay in El Paso.
