About the restaurant
Crafted out of sheer Westside flair and a nineteen year trajectory, Thyme Restaurant is a concept reimagined by a couple of couples with an affinity for food, wine and our beautiful Upper Westside neighborhood. It took laughter, conversation and lots of emotion, over many dinners to evolve this coveted space to what you see now. As you dine with us, surround yourself with our fine casual atmosphere amongst friends, family, food, wine, music, art and culture and let your conversations evolve. Thank you for helping us preserve this gem in our beloved neighborhood.

We had a very enjoyable anniversary dinner with delicious food and an extremely professional and friendly staff. There was a family with children sitting within arm's reach, but they were well behaved and didn't bother us. The closeness of the tables appeared somewhat problematic for the server, however. We look forward to the next delicious meal at Thyme.

The steak and the additions were very good. However, the prices are extremely high which makes the restaurant NOT a good value. However, if money is no object, then by all means go and enjoy yourself.

About the restaurant
Born in a family with a passion for Gastronomy and Oenology, we opened our first French Wine Bistro, Cepage[s], in Notting Hill, London in 2014. Driven by the success of Cepage[s], my father Felix Cohen, who lives in Grenoble (French Alpes), came with the idea to open an authentic french cuisine restaurant in El Paso. Our concept is to create a cozy atmosphere, featuring delicious bistro style sharable appetizers and classic popular dishes from diverse regions in France paired with a great selection of wines and cocktails. Our name, Entrecôte, is a very popular Ribeye Steak dish served in bistros and specialty restaurant in France. We are very exited to start this new adventure and offer a unique experience to El Pasoans and visitors from out of town.

Everything was amazing! It was our first time at this restaurant with the family for Mother's Day. Everyone was very satisfied, we loved the food and the place too. The only thing we didn't like was the location of the table in the corner. It was a little bit uncomfortable. I'd have given that table to five people, not six. But except for that everything else was great! We'll go back for sure!

The waitress paced our drinks, appetizer, and dinner. We were not pushed/rushed through dining. We had time to enjoy the evening. The waitress was most pleasant and attentive.
