With its impressive location overlooking Houston’s most prestigious boulevards, Château provides guests an ambiance of unpretentious luxury. The timeless décor and gracious service make for a dining experience as memorable as it is delicious. The menu is an effortless melding of French culinary simplicity artfully plated. Consciously infused touch points, most associated with classically trained service, pamper diners. Château brings to life the lost art of tableside service with menu items such as Wild Mushroom “Heritage” Chicken, Parmesan Crusted Rack of Lamb and a 42 oz. Tomahawk Ribeye for two. The Simply Grilled items take center stage and the market-driven menu celebrates the freshness of the seasons. A well-priced wine list, as well as a Reserve Wine list, has more than 600 references.

The ambiance is really the only reason to ever visit La Table. When we arrived a bartender checked us in and told us to head upstairs. When we arrived a server told us that they were closed (our reservations were at noon). After insisting that wasn’t what we were told downstairs we were begrudgingly taken to a banquet and sat next to a table who had not even placed their entree orders. We ordered drinks and appetizers while we looked over the menu. This is where an awkward situation got stranger. At first the server was totally overbearing in what I can only assume was an effort to atone for his brusqueness. Initially, it was borderline obsequious but after we had our first course we didn’t see him again for a good thirty minutes. We had to flag down the bus person to send a drink back when the wrong one was delivered, the table was crumbed at the end of the meal for the first and only time, the need for salt was moot because the food was finished by the time he came around to check on how everything tasted.

As far as the food was concerned nothing was bad but it certainly wasn’t great. The avocado salad and Monte Carlo needed the aforementioned salt. The tuna flat bread was lackluster and the octopus fell flat. I understand simple, straightforward dishes but a $20 appetizer that looks like a child’s portion should at least knock it out of the park in the flavor category. Sadly that didn’t happen with anything that we tried.

Side note, it is hard to sell bread as being baked in house every morning when what we received for bread service was cold and stale. If you keep bread from the previous day just to reheat and serve best not to call attention to it.

We had a wonderful dinner for our anniversary! Every employee we encountered from moment we checked in downstairs until we left the building wished us a "happy anniversary"! We sat in a cozy booth by the windows, and Mario and Anthony provided excellent attention and service! We shared the Avocado Salad (divine!) for an appetizer, then my husband had the entree size Lobster Rigatoni (delicious!) and I had the Sea Scallops (fantastic!). The room was quiet, the pace was relaxed, and the overall experience was just perfect! We usually dine downstairs at Marche (and especially enjoy the music on the patio on weekends!) but for special occasions, Chateau is a must!

This is the an excellent restaurant with a beautiful decor. The seafood sampler and cheese soufflé were delicious. The main courses were great as well. Only gripe is the verbiage on the menu is a bit confusing/ misleading as it says the price for the Dover sole is 60 dollars per person but does not clearly specify it is for 2 people hence it is 120 dollars. I pointed this out and they comped the dessert but this should really be clearer. Overall excellent restaurant which I would highly recommend.

The food was good but we were mis-led about table-side preparations.
We were informed at the beginning that the fish - Dover Sole to be precise- would be prepared
table side and it was not.
We were told the homemade pasta with truffles would be put together tableside and it was not.
Da Marco serves a very similar dish and the truffles are shaved tableside and the pasta is combined
with the cheese and truffles tableside. So, this is not a new concept except La Table did not deliver.

Overall it was an OK experiene. Entirely too expensive for the kind of food that was served.

🍴Restaurant: La Table.
.
Made a last minute reservation at 9am on Open Table and got a reservation for 11:30am. They seated us on the 2nd floor which was completely different from the 1st floor. It was very fancy with nice group seating, where the first floor was more homey and quaint. Our server was sweet and super enthusiastic about the food and menu. She gave us a nice detailed menu explanation that was thorough.
.

Our group decided to order the brunch items and salads. I loved the salmon eggs Benedict with a side of avocado! It was excellent! The hollandaise sauce was perfect and it came with a small side salad and roasted finger potatoes. The French toast was very unique. It had a custard taste that was crispy in the outside and moist in the inside. It was sweet and a perfect dessert with coffee.
.

A manager went around to each table to check in on the guest, which was nice and the assistant server/ bus boy was very attentive and super friendly. I loved it! It was a great place for brunch and not too expensive.

The service was very attentive but intrusive. IMO, great service is never noticed. One server actually said of my plate of duck when he put down a little rotated, Oh it must still be alive and wiggled. Another waiter interrupted my conversation to ask if I was done with my completely empty plate. He also verbally excused himself as he reached across me, forcing me to lean back, in order to place a knife. Could have walked behind me to place the utensil properly, from the left.

Tip: worst table (mine) faced the swinging doors to the kitchen which opened at least 200 times as waitstaff scurried to and fro.

Simply one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at and I am a fine dining foodie. Should be Michelin starred if they ever cared to pay attention to this part of the world. The food was amazing, the presentation great, the Chateau area of the restaurant is beautiful and the service was absolutely world-class impeccable (5 stars for service doesn't do it justice). If there is one thing that I would gripe about is that they have a very limited menu of the French cuisine variety yet somehow they have steaks on the menu. I guess we're in Texas so that's acceptable (I'm sure the steak is great too) but if you are intent on stepping out of your steak comfort zone and experience the chef's creativity, you really are limited in your selections: again, the execution is perfect on what they offer but having 2-3 more options of the non-steak variety to choose from would be nice. Just a small suggestion for what is otherwise a truly magnificent restaurant.

La Table was an absolutely, fabulous experience! The service was phenomenal, I really enjoyed how reservations were on the top floor as opposed to normal walk-ins, who were on the bottom floor. The food was extremely luscious, from the bread and butter, to the 3-course meals! The ambiance was perfect and comfortable, allowing me and my significant other to talk in relaxation.

My wife and I had dinner here for Valentine's, and I must say this was a hit! The service was superb and the food was incredible. We had a Dover Sole made for 2 that was the best fish dish ever! The second floor dining room has a great Houston view. The tables were large and well spaced apart, giving a privileged dining feeling. As we left, I was able to view the kitchen through glass behind the second floor bar. It is gleaming and massive, and very busy. The restaurant was completely full by 8 PM. There were a number of diners who, on arrival, were greeted like old friends. It is obvious that repeat regulars are constantly dining here. The waiting staff were very knowledgable, and the valet parking guys were also attentive, and had to be amateur comedians. The first floor also has a bar and tales and is designed to be less formal. My wife and I have some great friends that we adore who are soon moving out of state. We each agreed this restaurant will be the site of a going-away dinner that will host in the coming months.

At La Table, much work has been put into providing an authentic French dining experience, culminating in its more formal upstairs Chateau dining room. Entry is through a downstairs nouveau bistro/patisserie with its own full casual menu and seating and an inviting upscale bar well suited for imbibing before or after dining or taking dessert. For the Chateau, our quickie takes: food: excellent, well-prepared and noteworthy; service: attentive, friendly and fully staffed; décor: a fine mix of plush modern with a hint of bistro roots; the tab: definitely high-end but expected. For foodies: the branzino, not served looking at you but rather offered as a delicate deboned filet with skin intact topped with a light sauce - delightful; a black truffle pasta specialty perfectly cooked and sauced, liberally sprinkled with the obligatory shavings perhaps a bit past their prime to be too remarkable; and desserts well worth the indulgence. Entrees were limited to eight selections on the menu plus two announced specials; sufficiently varied so as not to trouble any in our party. On service: the complete staff of waiters, servers, maître d' and sommelier was attentive and French-inspired complete with a well-choreographed simultaneous removal of all cloche plate covers. A few peccadilloes: a staff a tad too familiar and overt with long-winded pronouncements of wine and fare that should not be passed over (while we did not expect Gallic indifference as a service mark of authenticity, we suggest a bit more understatement than the neighborhood trattoria); a wine list that approaches or exceeds 3X street pricing, though Coravin-preserved higher-end offerings by the glass made up for some of that; and occasional rock music inappropriate for the setting wafting in from the downstairs bar from the entry door left open.

The food is good, somewhat small menu choices. The service level surprised me. They are a little amateurish in the way the waiters work the tables. They don’t know what has been said by whom and sometimes you can’t get anyone. A request was not filled and I had to catch someone e walking by to bring it. For what is supposed to be a top place in town it needs some work. Forgot to mention that they had a happy birthday sign on the table for our anniversary.

We were originally seated at a table that was very cold. Our server reseated us at another table. Still cold but bearable. At that point and throughout the evening our service was spotty, as if we were an afterthought by the wait staff. Definitely not what we have experienced at this restaurant before.
