Sat at the bar. Great service by the bartender. My steak was a bit chewy and I heard another guy complain about the same thing. Great restaurant though. I will definitely go back. Can't judge an establishment by one subpar steak. More

It is a cozy place. Service was very good, Miguel and his co-worker (sorry I do not remember her name) were very friendly. My complain of the food was because we ordered some olives and they were run out. It should not happen if you have an small list of food to offer. More

Maison Pucha BistroMaison Pucha Bistro

French | Heights / Washington, Houston

Maison Pucha continues to be one of my absolute favorite Houston restaurants. My wife and I went last night (Wednesday) and the place was vibrant. BONUS— I was pleasantly surprised to learn on Wednesdays that select wines are 1/2 price—a very generous selection at different price points. We enjoyed a terrific bottle of Pouilly-Fuissé from Christian’s well constructed list. The food—chef Manuel continues to construct eye-appealing, and some wow inducing presentations—even before you take a bite, it’s great to enjoy the dish with your eyes. Chef Manuel then creates palate pleasures that excite— even dishes with basic ingredients such as the avocado and cucumber salad appetizer were prepared to delicately enhance each main ingredient with fresh chives, finely sliced red onion and a zesty vinaigrette dressing. I started with the yellowfin tuna tartare— another artistic presentation and then.....the taste of the tuna was enhanced with a hint of heat from jalapeños, some crunch from a lotus root chip, 3 dabs of wasabi creme fraiche, and some micro cilantro. Yum. We departed from our usual entree choices and tried the “Butcher’s Cut for Two”—the finest quality Chateaubriand cooked just to the medium rare we ordered wheeled out on a serving cart, carved tableside, and served with asparagus, a potato gratin containing what I believe were at least three different cheeses melted with potato slices into luscious mouthfuls of joy, and a dish of mushrooms—I loved the selection and we just had to eat every single mushroom. We had to. We rarely have dessert but you must try Victor’s soufflé with Ecuadorian chocolate with homemade vanilla ice cream and a dash of passion fruit; it temporarily takes you to another place—a really nice place! My wife’s favorite is the home made blackberry sorbet served together with a lemon mousse orb—a tiny creamy planet of lemony tartness which balances the sorbet. The brothers Pucha and great staff will not disappoint. Enjoy. More
