    Always an awesome experience at ACEQ and never a dull moment from the high welcoming energy of the staff to the ever evolving menu which has a bit of asian influence for the summer!

    We love to do special occasions at Aseq. So my husband wanted to celebrate Father’s Day there. The food was outstanding and the server was gracious and well trained. It was too loud to have a conversation without yelling, so we did. To be fair 3 of us are hearing impaired seniors, but we would come back more frequently if there was outside seating. Oh, and the locals discount was appreciated.

    Probably the worst tasting restaurant meal I have had in 31 years of dining in Taos. Had a curry rice bowl that had no distinguishing flavors, other than some mild heat. Just mush. Noise level in restaurant is terrible. All hard surfaces, which accentuates the noise. Unable to carry on a conversation with others at table. We’ve been to Aceq several times, and the noise was always distracting, but this time, coupled with the food, tipped the balance. We won’t go back. The worst news is that apparently the chef has taken over the nearby Sabroso, and, if he installs a similar food and atmosphere there, there will be one less good restaurant in Taos.

    Aceq is by far the best restaurant in town. The entire staff is always on point. The food and drinks are delicious and very unique. We have never had a bad experience there. Ever!!! Taos can be tough to find good food and a relaxing environment. Aceq is the place..

    Great atmosphere. The brown rice and curry was a little spicey. The corn ribs were outstanding!

    One of the best restaurant meals I've ever had from this unassuming little restaurant in Arroyo Seco. The "Wangus" ribeye was otherworldly and the tartare was the best I've ever had. It's a little loud inside the restaurant but the service was outstanding. The chef's unique fusion of flavors was simply perfect.
