The owners of Étoile Cuisine et Bar, Chef Philippe Verpiand and Monica Bui, have created an inviting, warm European environment where both traditional and seasonal French food are front and center. "We want to dispel the notion that French food is heavy and pretentious," says the team, recently transplanted to Houston from San Diego, where they owned the famed Cavaillon Restaurant. Everything about Étoile Cuisine et Bar, from the inviting outside facade to the intriguing interior design to the high quality service, is meant to convey a feeling of truly being in France. With Chef Philippe's take on a seasonal menu using a French technique, it's a place where fine food lovers come together, not on a special occasion, but to enjoy every day.

Authentic high-end French restaurant, a favorite for my wife and myself (our 3rd time). We've probably gone out for a nice meal 2-3x in the last year since the birth of our baby. When time came for our Anniversary dinner (which also happens to fall very close to Valentines Day), this is where we went. It never disappoints.

Etoile is a gem of French refinement that has mastered the art of smooth service, delicious (but not overwhelming) cuisine and charming atmosphere. We lived in Paris for a brief period in the mid 1980's and Etoile is an updated version of our favorite spots there. The 4-course menu is a great value--and offers the best of the night's dishes as opposed to the least expensive options. Service was flawless despite dining on Valentine's Day eve. Great wine options by the glass too.
Etoile is a keeper.

Great food and service...the only negative is it was a cold evening and we were seated near the door and every time it opened we got a bit of a chill. Aside from that it was an excellent experience. The place was completely packed!

I tagged "Comfort Food" and "Authentic" because the bulk of the menu is classic French/Continental cuisine, which I consider "Comfort Food." I could have stopped with the appetizers because they all were so appealing. In addition to the food, the wine list was a great companion to the menu. Wines were a good selection of French reds and wines ( including one of my favorite whites--Meursault--as well as good selection of California ones. I prefer classic dishes rather than experimental ones, so Etoile is a must repeat on my list.
