    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "We ordered the Tuscan rosemary waffle and the meatlovers bread pudding, which we split and the kitchen had these dishes already portioned out fr us on our separate plates. This was to die for. The combination of the rosemary waffle and meat bread pudding with the poached egg on top of it all, really should be a dish offered on the menu (as apposed to two separate dishes we had them put on the same plate). Now to the service...very friendly, but I find I would like my waiter to be much more eager to fill my mimosa glass. We kept having to wave folk down for refills. It's Sunday brunch, of course I want lotsa mimosas! Just not as attentive as we expected. Based on food quality and awesomeness, we will definitely return."

  • "We had a wonderful Brunch there on Sunday!! Food was outstanding!!! I a sure the wine list is good, but we didn't drink anything that morning! Awesome time with amazing food!!"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Met another couple for brunch this past Sunday;the food was great the service was great the atmosphere was good. They were it doing a booming business and yet everything was just as it should be. We made reservations through open table and we're seated immediately and offered a selection of seating locales within the restaurant which was approximately 80% full. Highly recommended-will go back next time we're in town."

  • "We had visited for brunch once and I asked to see their dinner menu. It looked appetizing. So, we came back with friends for dinner and were not disappointed. I do think we were the youngest ones there and we are in our mid 40's. But, everything tasted wonderful! Prices were reasonable as well. Decent wines to choose from. Staff very attentive. I thought it odd that they closed at 10 pm on a Friday night."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at Cafe Benedicte the other night. The food was absolutely delicious, we had a great bottle of Stag's Leap wine in a nice romantic atmosphere which ended up in a great date night for us both! Thanks to all the staff that made this possible."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "I live on the southwest side of Houston and a friend recommended I check out this cafe. I had a great experience and loved this location. It really should be in the Montrose area or River Oaks. I was impressed with the overall experience and will visit again."

    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "My husband and I went to Café Benedicte for lunch. Both of us ordered the Meditterean Trio, which you can choose a salad, a center plate option, and a side. My center plate option of the zucchini abruzzo was light with great flavors. My husband had the moussaka as his center plate option and it was delicious as well. We would definitely visit here again."

  • "Wonderful appetizers, especially hummus with lamb. Main courses variety and wide choices of salads and soups are included. Romantic atmosphere, live piano music…What else can you wish for very reasonable prices?"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Our group of 8 dined in the wine cellar. We were seated at a large square table so that we could all see each other. The noise of the main dining room was muted so that we were able to chat and enjoy everyone at the table. It is so difficult for large groups to find a place where we can actually share conversations. This was a perfect evening! The food was excellent. We are all coming back very soon."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "In the energy corridor we often need a place to meet for a business conversation. The staff are welcoming. The food is straight forward - not fancy yet not too simple either. I've eaten there a few times and would recommend making a reservation as it is often full."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "My husband and I joined friends for brunch at Cafe Benedicte. Overall it was very enjoyable and we really enjoyed the live piano music. The food was inconsistent . My meal was pretty good but others in the group found the food to be average (we all had different items)."
    Dined on 2/2/2014
  • "Very good cuisine with many great selections. I have tried the fish, lamb, and pastas, and all were superb. Staff is always happy to see me and, even though they do not know my name, treat me like family. Good food, nice surroundings, friendly staff, and great location."
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "Been here a few times before and the food has been good. This visit the starter wasn't hot and the beef was tough, the main wasn't great either, I left the majority of food. The server did suggest I take something else, but after the starter I wasn't convinced it would get any better. Unfortunately I won't be back, there are better places to go."
    Dined on 1/27/2014
  • "The restaurant was packed for the Sunday brunch we attended, that being said the staff was incredibly proficient in handling the crowd. Despite the waiting to be seated guests, they honored our reservation without delay. The restaurant has a nice décor expansive bar area and two dining rooms. My wife had the brunch skillet which she enjoyed, and I the meat lovers bread pudding (unusual sounding, yes - detectible defiantly). Our only complaint was the noise level, other than carpeting in the dining room there is nothing to dampen the noise from a busy service, so if you are looking for some quiet time at brunch look elsewhere, however the food made this place a must go again in our book."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "The food was delicious, but the food was not hot, just room temperature"

  • "This was my first visit here and it was wonderful. Service was friendly and prompt. Had a Hummus app which was very tasting followed by a fantastic to die for cauliflower and blue cheese soup with just the perfect amount of heat added to it. Paella was delicious as well. Food was reasonably priced for the flavor and amount and I walked away feeling full and happy. I will definitely return when I am back in Houston at the local hotel on business."

  • "disappointed after making reservations and advising them we were coming there to celebrate a birthday, to find they stuck us at the smallest table they have smack dab in the middle of the restuarant. We almost left, but instead I let the mgr know we were very unhappy, which i shouldn't have had to do. We were expecting better service since it is supposed to be an upscale restaurant with valet parking only. they tried to make it up by not charging for desert, but i must say we should have been treated better upon our arrival since this was our first time there and we let them know it."
