About

Innovative American with French Techniques. The menu at Aura Brasserie offers plenty for those who aren't too adventurous with their dining preferences as well as numerous options for those who may enjoy dining more 'outside the box'! Additionally, the Specials each day/night offer more delicious fun...often featuring more than American or French fare. Chef Perrier loves food, loves to cook and loves to 'play' outside the box. The truly adventurous can Reserve in Advance for Chef's 5-Course Tasting Menu (with or without pairings). Many 'regulars' aren't even offered menus as "Tasting Menu Only" is known by all staff as their dining preference!

OpenTable Diner (San Antonio)
5.0
Dined on August 20, 2016

Aura is a nice find in the Sugar Land area. We enjoyed a quiet table, a very good bottle of wine and the options offered for the Houston Restaurant Week. The service is always attentive but unobtrusive, and the new seating arrangement allows both couples and larger parties to dine comfortably. This evening there were a couple of large parties and a few couples.

The fix-pries menu offered some interesting options. An appetizer course, main, and dessert. The wife opted for the cold smoked salmon salad for the first course. I had the foie gras creme bruele, which proved to be a good choice.

The wife had the gorganzola fillet with mashed potatoes and asparagus, and I had the pork mignon wellington with the porcinni sauce and seasonal vegetables. The only challenge is that the wife likes things medium well to well done which periodically causes a service issue. If the plates come out together, I run the risk of having my hot meal cooling off before it reaches me. Unfortunately that happened again. The pork tenderloin inside the wellington crust had cooled off too much. I don't normally send things back but this needed some heat. It did not take too long for the dish to come back at a much more desirable temperature. Both entrees were very good - order again decisions.

The dessert decisions were a chocolate mouse cake and a creme bruele san foie gras. A nice way to cap off the evening.

This was a great place for a date night with my husband. We really enjoyed the meal, the escargot was amazing, and the atmosphere was perfect for date night. We will absolutely be going back there to try different things off of their menu.

They have added a musician who is good but loud enough that you cannot hear people at your table.

It is a family owned restaurant. I've been there several times. They consistently provide great food and service. We went there to celebrate our daughter engagement. Different from previous times the service wasn't professional. Hope next time it will be better.

Excellent from start to finish. You feel like you are really special. I tried the HRW menu with pate and duck crepes with chocolate mousse cake. Wow! The pate was amazing served with French bread. The duck crepes were plentiful with a nice sauce and sautéed vegetables. The desert I only sampled but it was amazing too! They also have a business mans lunch special that sounds great!

I took my girlfriend out for a romantic evening and the team at Aura were just the best.

Our last date night had actually ended at Aura and the manager and bartenders made us feel so special then that I knew they'd be perfect accomplices for a little romantic surprise. They were totally happy to play along and made sure our evening was just the best. I love this place and it's now my favorite spot at Town Centre!

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary by trying a "new" restaurant, one we had not tried before. Aura was definitely the right place! The food was outstanding! Could not have asked for better. Just don't forget to save room for creme brûlée and the profiteroles!!
The place filled up quickly and service slowed somewhat, but overall we loved our experience and will definitely be back.

In the area so stopped in for a Saturday lunch. Rainy day. Light crowd...booked but wasn't necessary. Great service. Interesting france-inspired lunch menu. Flounder sandwich delicious, although get the almost-too-spicy sauce on the side. Loved the small portion of profiteroles for sharing with the wife. Highly recommend.
