Diner Reviews
  • "The restaurant is in the First Colony shopping area Town Center and looks like a French Bistro (tables are close together). It was packed and fairly noisy, but the food is great! We went for Houston Restaurant Weeks and had the fixed price menu. The foie gras appetizer was everything I expected it to be. The petit filet was so tender you could cut it with a fork and with a wonderful wine sauce that just made it perfect. We had a wonderful time with friends and our waiter Thomas was very friendly and brought out their birthday surprise, which is a goblet with cotton candy and a sparkler...lots of fun! We will definitely go back in the future."

  • "Aura has never disappointed me. Absolutely fabulous French cuisine! Frederic is the real deal! This is European dining in Sugar Land - have wonderful specials for lunch and dinner!"

  • "The pate fois gras with crème brûlée was excellent. The lobster bisque was thin with no actual lobster in it. The duck was average and a little dry. The blackberry cobbler was good but the carrot cake cupcake was lacking. With the lobster bisque, the bill was $45 per person and with a glass of wine, the entire bill was $200. I would rather spend that on a better meal or something else. The restaurant is small and becomes noisy. Our server was nice but we waited a great deal between courses and canceled our orders for coffee and espresso because we were finished with dessert before they even made it. We were there an hour and 45 minutes. I don't think I will be returning. I think such pervasive problems are not easily fixable."

  • "The lunch menu during restaurant week was limited but very good and of good value. It was very difficult to find the crabe inside the beignets, I hope this does not represent the beignets during the normal operation. I will try the restaurant in the evening for dinner a la carte when the choice is more diversify. I think is a keeper"

  • "We enjoyed the restaurant. It was crowded. Wait staff indicated they were tired. Wine list okay. Food was good but not as excellent as I had remembered from my last visit. We were entertaining guests and wanted them to really be impressed."

  • "The food and service were great however due to the high notice level we will probably not return. Part of the problem was a party of 16 seated across from us and 8 of them were children under 6 years old . Why they felt this was an appropriate place for a birthday party is mind boggling . Our party of 4 could barely carry on a conversation . Maybe more soundproofing would help. Regardless , we rushed thru our dinner just do we could chat on the side walk."

  • "Chef Perrier's food is always good! (Usually we dine at sister restaurant Coco Pazzo.) The lobster bisque not only is excellent, but for $10 is a bargain for the large serving. Be aware that the reflective walls and ceiling make for a noisy environment when the house is full."

  • "My husband and I went there Friday (Restaurant Week). We had 7:30 reservations, were seated promptly and enjoyed the next 1-1/2 hours. Conversation was possible in spite of the high volume in the restaurant and an extremely loud party near our table. From the prix fixe menu, we had an tuna/avocado tower appetizer- a generous portion of grilled tuna on guacamole with pico de gallo garnish. We had the escolar/eggplant and filet mignon for main courses. The grilled escolar was tasty, but had a butter based sauce too rich for my taste. Our waiter was attentive and gave excellent recommendations for wines by the glass to complement our dinners. I have not been disappointed by Aura's selection of wines."

  • "We were seated as soon as arriving. Staff was attentive although at times hard to understand. Lemon Drop martini was average even with Grey Goose vodka. Wine was excellent by glass. Noisy, uncomfortable seating. Tables too close together. 1st course delivered very timely. Salad fresh but dressing in adequate. Main course was steaks. One steak asked for medium rare came out medium. Both steaks chewy. Taste had to be adulterated with sauce. Vegetables/potatos appeared to have been taken off steam table....mushy. When told of birthday a very gaudy oversized glass with some kind of stuffing and a sparkler were delivered. A requested dessert to take 20 minutes to prepare declined. Crème Brulee unimpressive and elementary."

  • "The food and service were wonderful. The waiter went the extra mile to make our lunch special. The chef and waiter were very helpful with regard to my gluten intolerance and recommended a number of wonderful gluten free options from the menu. I did not expect to have so many gluten free options. All three main course selections from the Restaurant Week menu were gluten free."

  • "The food was good and it was probably worth the $250 meal for four. However, the service was at the level I would expect from the local Chili's. Too long to wait for the initial drink order and specials discussion. Abandoned between appetizers and main course. Empty plates sat on the table for a long time. We only tipped 15%."

  • "We went on a Saturday night my husband and I for our anniversary. We had been to this restaurant before and loved it so decided to go back. Ordered Pork Shank a favorite presentation was different but it was still delicious. It's a great place to take guests."

  • "I have been twice now. Once with a group and once with my husband. The best part for a large group is the bill is broken down into indiv by # who had what. I am big on just tossing my card in but hard when it is a mixed group of not all close friends. It is loud but not an issue. Food is outstanding and I have never had a bad dish. Great options."

  • "Aura is a family favorite. We also enjoy hosting guests to enjoy the exceptional food and vibrant ambience of the surroundings. Aura never disappoints. While the menu is notable and varied the true enjoyment is being surprised by what Chef Perrier has decided to showcase as his specials for the day. Whether traditional meat cuts, game or seafood the dishes are inventive and interesting. The wine list is varied and reasonable and, if you do your homework, can provide great value."

  • "Had the crispy pork belly tacos this time, & they were really good. I would've preferred them to be a bit more crispy--but the all "around" flavors really made up for it. I also had the foie gras duo (this time they only had pate & not the foie gras creme brulee). Service was personable & impeccable as always! I will keep going back as they have really won my loyalty!"
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "They have a great wine list & happy hour. Food is nothing short of spectacular w/just the right sized portions so if you walk away hungry it's your own fault, servers & staff are very knowledgeable, service is impeccable, ambiance is very inviting not "stuffy" like a lot of French restaurants, & no small bank loan required. Try the crab beignets, the seared foie gras (or better yet the duo of foie gras), pork belly tacos, the Frenchie Burger, duck confit, & the pork shank."

  • "We were not happy with our experience at Aura's. There were only three tables occupied when we sat down. Someone came over and got us bread and water. We then sat for quite some time while the waiters hovered over the other patrons. Sometimes two were at the same table at once. I finally asked the hostess if we had a waiter and she got us a waiter so we could place our order. We enjoyed the escargots but did not enjoy the rest of our meal. My husband had a pork dish and I had salmon. My salmon was extremely greasy and did not taste fresh. We may return to the restaurant but only to eat the escargots. By the way, this was our third visit to Aura. We had a much better time on the two previous occasions and the food was much better then."

  • " We had enjoyed several evening dinners at the original Aura in the Township. Our first experience at the new Aura at Town Center was a surprising disappointment. You have lost our patronage. You have also lost the ambience of the original Aura - - - your Town Center Aura is simply a bar which also serves food (despite the efforts of your excellent Chef). "

  • "The best burger I have ever had-the Frenchie. There is some real genius there. All of the bread was amazing. My wife loved the creme brûlée and she is a tough critic. My profiteroles totally caught me off guard. I was not expecting such an amazing desert. Service was perfect. Again that burger...truffled mushrooms! The best. "

  • "Rude waiter! He seemed like we were a bother. He raised his eyebrows and did a head-tilt thing to indicate he was ready to take our order. As oppose to saying anything along the lines of "may I take your order." We asked to hear about the business lunch special. He brought the chalk board over with the specials and left it by our table. Other waiters would read the menu to their table, we did not get that same courtesy. Lamb sliders were overcooked. When we brought it to the hostess' attention (since our waiter was nowhere to be found), the waiter came over and told us even if they re-fired it we "would not see pink in the middle because lamb meat is not pink.""

  • "This restaurant had been highly recommended by someone in the neighborhood, so my wife and I had one night in Sugar Land and chose to go there. Ordered civiche for appetizer and it was warm and uneatable. Server took it back and did not charge. Then ordered the lemon sole for entree. It was very raw. Had it been turned over and cooked for another minute, it would have been fine. Some people seem to love the place as it was full. It was far too noisy for me. I don't plan on returning. Too many other good restaurants in the area."

  • "Looking for a change from the typical upscale steakhouse scene? Aura's brasserie has a casual & eclectic ambience with enough noise to keep you awake but not enough that you can't hear conversation at your table. For appetizers, the chicken liver pâté was smooth but not overpowering. My wife and daughter loved the lobster bisque to the point they wanted to lick the bowl! The wedge salad and caesar salad were good. My family was in a fishy mood that night and my wife and daughter both had the Brooke Trout and I had the Lemon Sole. The presentation was very eye appealing but of course we were hungry, not looking for art. We were not disappointed! Our waiter was good and our orders were perfect but service was a little slow. We will go back!"
