Diner Reviews
  • "The restaurant used to be a wealthy person's home. The ambiance is very nice. The food is very good, but the price is definitely on the high side. However, $24 for a substantial chunk of foie gras (duck's liver) is not too bad, and there are a few "good value" wines among the expensive ones."

  • "La Colombe d'Or is a special place in Houston. The restaurant has excellent food and the dining room is romantic and cozy. I really can't say enough about the food here. It is truly outstanding and on a winter night, venison and a nice bottle of wine is just perfect. The wine list has plenty of well aged, pricey red wines but I really think it needs to include some more moderately priced, modern wines. They seem to have more $500.00-$5000.00 bottles than $50.00-$250.00 bottles on the list. I love to have the option of splurging on an old wine but more reasonable choices should be included. The service is hit or miss and I wish the servers were more knowledgeable about the food and wine."

  • "I made a reservation for dinner at this restaurant expecting a quiet, romantic dinner with my wife & I. They failed to inform me that they had scheduled a huge benefit party with 200+ people at the same time. Besides only having one harried waiter for the entire area because all the other wait staff was busy serving the party, the entire room was vibrating with the techno-electric music beats of their DJ. If I had wanted to eat in the middle of a nightclub, I would have gone to a nightclub. What was supposed to be a rare romantic dinner with my wife at a top notch restaurant was ruined by the frat house atmosphere of the party that was spilling out all over the grounds of the restaurant."

  • "Sat. 02/16/14 party of 4. Pedestrian food--why would one ever think of flattening, frying and ruining a perfectly good filet mignon rendered therefore tasteless as beef and negatively memorable only for it's over peppered coating? Best dish was smoked, but slightly woody textured, octupus tentacle as appetizer. Service mediocre for the exorbitant high prices. Have been to this restaurant on special occasions for 25 years. It has disappointed before and I'm afraid Mr Zimmerman's and his kitchen and front of the house staff's efforts again failed. We won't be back."

  • "Sorry to say that the Restaurant was less than satisfactory. Wait staff very impatient, food was less than appealing so overall would not go back. Lobster bisque was their "specialty". More like gravy than bisque with crawfish tails included but not very good. Chateaubriand was decent but presentation was lacking as presented to table direct from the kitchen with what appeared to be a femur bone on the plate with bone marrow. Not attractive nor was it tasty. Think a little attention to detail and more appetizing dishes would have changed my mind, but this impression was not good."

  • "I had never heard of this restaurant, but the reviews looked good. I don't usually like to go out on a limb and try a place that is too fancy. I sometimes feel like the whole charade is so tiring. That being said, I thought it place was the real deal. I believe the manager, a German man I believe, had a lot to do with how much I enjoyed the meal. He knew how to "pace" the evening, and I didn't feel rushed to order. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed the food. I would definitely consider going back, on a regular night, as the manager suggested. Oh, and the menu is definitely organic enough for me, though it doesn't specify, if you know, then you know."

  • "We have been going to La Colombe d'Or for 25 years and have never been disappointed. The food is unbelievably delicious from the appetizers forward. From the Heirloom Tomatoes with Buffalo Mozzarella to the Gulf Prawns it was exceptional. Love their Texas spin on European tradition."

  • "This is a perfect place for a quiet romantic dinner. They do a great job treating you like royalty. Example: I ordered an Arnold Palmer to drink. They do not usually serve that drink. Instead of telling me no, they went into the back made homemade lemonade and came out with my Arnold Palmer. By the way, the best Arnold Palmer I have ever had. The food was good and the experience was great. If you are new to Houston or never tried this restaurant, it worth a try. You are surround with a lot of Houston history and great customer service. It is very private and quiet."

  • "We are there for NYE, these issues may not be true on evenings with less people. Tomato salad was so sweet, couldn't eat it. Bread was homemade and delicious. Snapper dish was not good. Drowned in cream sauce with no flavor. Fish sat on top of burned cauliflower. Husband ordered chateaubriand and said it was good. So many amazing french restaurants here that serve amazing food. Probably won't go back, but glad we tried it."

  • "Tried their chicken fried filet and it was over breaded , dry and underwhelming. This entree was overpriced for such an unaccomplished result. I could have got a chocked fried steak at Luby's that would have been better."

  • "We had another perfect evening at La Colombe d'Or. Service, food, wine, and setting were all fabulous. It is an expensive evening but worth every penny. It is so nice to have such personalized service and waiters/sommeliers who really try to help you make the right choice for what you are looking for. Highly recommended."

  • "We went for my husband's birthday and it was ideal. Such a precious atmosphere, very romantic, and the service was impeccable. I loved how quiet it was and that we could actually carry on a nice conversation and hear ourselves talk. Would definitely go back. It is a great spot as a venue as well."

  • "We dined for HRW. It's a lovely building, food was fair, service awful. We were treated like intruders, not worth the time of a place that usually sells pricey wine to patrons dining on inconsistent, overpriced food. They seemed put off that I asked for dark napkins rather than use white on dark clothes (something they should offer without being asked). The apps arrived almost as soon as ordered; the escargots tasted like it was already made and rewarmed. My filet was okay, nothing special. I had to ask for steak knife. Redfish was overcooked and bland. They literally delivered dessert as they cleared entrees. Then the waiter chased me down to confront me because he didn't like tip. In sum, the worst meal ever. You should never eat here."
