Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Great food and service and I liked that the menu offered dishes you can't find in other places in Sugar Land."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "This was my first time at Aura Brasserie. I was meeting a friend for lunch and we were in no rush. The server took great care of us, never rushed us, and even offered to charge my friend's phone when her battery died. Great wine, food and service!"

  • "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!"

  • "Overall food was fair. We had the flounder dish and chicken sandwich and both were okay. We did enjoy the bread even though it was cold but the spread was good. Apparently the bread is never warm bc we saw other customers asking to heat the bread. The waiter did not do a good job at all. He had a flat affect and didn't seem like he enjoyed doing his job."

  • "Been here before, and it was better last time. Food was way overpriced and the portions were small. They were out of 3-4 of the dessert options that night. Waiter didn't know the menu well."

  • "What can we say? If you like you food perfect, as promised, look no further. If you want to treat yourself to a one of a kind meal, Aura is it! The owners are almost always (99%) there and working non stop. The fish is always cooked like it just leaped out of the Gulf, the pesto crusted lamb chops over goat cheese polenta (need no sauce or mint jellies), four of them are more than satisfying, The little surprises like lobster cakes hidden below the surface of the deep dish corn poblano soup bowl, pork cheeks paired with crispy shrimp, will keep us coming back....oh did I mention the melt in your mouth Cocoa Dusted Breast of Pheasant with Foie Gras, Prunes and Armagnac Sauce. All in all a great anniversary/valentine dinner. Thanks."

  • "The food was heavy. The onion soup was too sweet. The grapefruit ceviche was awesome. The steak was pricey and not very good. The blackberry cobbler was nice. The exterior door opens into the restaurant so the winds blows in a lot. We drank cocktails and beer, The wine glasses were on the table when we were seated, and remained there until we left. The service was not too good. I wouldn't recommend this place."

  • "Great food, great service, reasonable price. A little bit noisy so not suitable for Romantics. We will most definitely return. A sure sign of a great restaurant is when the owner/chef comes out to greet the clientele."
