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.

La Table was excellent. I would have given it a 4.5 star rating if it was possible. The ambience is great, the service was excellent. My friend had the Grilled Branzino which she loved. I had the best Caesar Salad I've ever eaten. I made an unfortunate choice of the mushroom flatbread for my entrée, and it was just okay. I blame myself for a poor choice rather than the restaurant. I think I would have given a clear 5 stars with any other choice of entrée.

It was as expected exceptional. My family always leaves saying later on that this is one of the favorite dining locations. We have no idea as to how or why there are poor reviews noted because the complaints are never ones we have experienced. I would wish that they would have a grand marnier souffle but that would be wish list and not complaint.

My husband and I came to La Table for our wedding anniversary. We were looking forward to having the Prime Cowboy Ribeye, but were informed that they were out when we were placing our order. We were really looking forward to the table side presentation and it was a let down. The food we had was really good and the service was superb, but the whole night was tainted by them not having the ribeye.

This restaurant used to be one of our favorites ...a special place with great service and food. Therefore reserved for a special birthday lunch recently. Personally spoke to restaurant 2 weeks in advance regarding special flower arrangement for the elderly birthday honoree and the special accommodations that would be required to ensure all would go smoothly. However Elevator was out of order that day yet no one bothered to contact us to let us know elderly guest could not be accommodated as promised. Special Flower arrangement requested for the table (and charged $100 ) looked like stale flowers from a grocery store and was a totally different color palette than requested. Guests were never asked about beverage preferences , only served water. Host of event finally had to request if iced tea was available. Water glasses often not kept filled. There were 4 guests yet when entrees were served one guest’s meal was missing and yet no one addressed this until host of luncheon had to leave the table and ask for assistance. After lunch I called the general manager and brought forward my concerns and was promised a return phone call later that evening or the next day. Never received a call back.

Something has changed at La Table ...no longer the special restaurant that went out of its way to ensure guests had a great experience. Extremely disappointing.

Attractive restaurant; a bit too warm inside as the number of patrons increased. Service was attentive, not intrusive. There was just two in our party, and we had a couple cocktails with appetizers, two entrees and desserts, cappuccino. At close to a $300 dinner, I would’ve expected far better cuisine. Overcooked main course, uninspired fois gras and pea soup—there was not a single dish ordered that justified beyond an average rating on taste alone. Presentation was a delight. In sum, I would recommend this establishment more for the whole dining experience, not for the food.

We were expecting a great evening and it was not. The waited asked three times if we wanted water, the bread was stale and cold. You needed a saw to break it apart. I asked the waiter for a chilled glass of Prosecco and the glass wasn’t chilled and it wasn’t filled. The avocado salad was tasteless. Zero. We ordered chicken and my husband ordered halibut. The halibut was over cooked and dry and the waiter spent so much time carving the chicken it wasn’t hot when he served it. There were too many mushrooms and only a few other vegetables. And the gravy looked like it should have a lot of taste but it didn’t. This restaurant is highly overrated. We will not go back.

We went to La Table - Chateau for the Grand Father's Day Brunch. We had never been before and wanted a really luxurious experience. We were not disappointed! The space is beautiful and the service was amazing. The food was good and the quantities of it were outrageous. It wasn't the best brunch food in the city but it was one of the more fun experiences for sure. We were glad we did it. It is a special occasion place.

The restaurant was lovely, dinner was delicious. I had to leave off one star. My husband and I were seated in the side room. All other tables were available, but quickly after being seated, the sat a very loud group next to us. The ladies were very vocal about being there to celebrate and that they’d be drinking quite a bit that night. We were celebrating our anniversary. We chose Chateau because it was recommended (on Open Table) as a quiet, date night place. I know staff can’t control who comes in. However, I felt since this group entered the room rambunctious, it would have been better to sit them farther away from a couple dining alone. We had to lean over our table to hear each other in conversation.

The waitstaff was amazing. The host staff left something to be desired—namely, checking my actual name for the res, especially since it was my birthday and they seated us at the wrong part of the restaurant first because they straightup didn’t check. I don’t think they checked when we got up to Chateau either. Guys. Come on.

Food was phenomenal; cocktails were lovely.

We have heard about La Table for over a year and wanted to try the place with friends we dine with on a regular basis. Our reservation was on a Tuesday night to avoid the weekend crowds. The restaurant we thought would be perfect for a great evening of wonderful food and service. The service was average and gave the waiter the benefit of doubt in not being able to understand what we wanted or should say what we did not want regarding some of the entrees. My wife and I ordered the lamb chops and asked, how are the lamb chops, to which the waiter responded, the best in Houston! Bad decision on our part, they were nothing but fat with little to no lamb. Our friends, specifically asked that the side of beans with their entree to be substituted for anything in the kitchen and guess what we got, beans, no substitute. Again, communication error or either not listening. The evening to say the least was disappointing and the quality of food fell way short of expectations.

The consensus between our party of 4 was that this was the best fish we have ever tasted. The branzino with leeks was a five star dish. My husband had the halibut and he usually puts pepper on EVERYTHING and said the fish was so delicious, it needed nothing extra.
The service was spot on- we were treated like guests in their home. The ambiance was warm and inviting and the lighting was just right.
I had been here for breakfast and lunch previously (also delicious), but this was my first time for dinner. It’s a gem!

Me and my wife just celebrated our first year anniversary at La Table. Our reservation was for 7 PM but we got there around 6:20 PM to enjoy some drinks at the bar. We had a couple of drinks downstairs then we headed to the bar upstairs, where the bartender recommended excellent cocktails. My wife had a drink she loved and I had a gin martini. I had wrote in my reservation I wanted to have the seafood tasting appetizer ready for us when we sat down and it was. The appetizer was amazing. We enjoyed all the sauces and they paired excellent with the seafood. Then, we wanted to have a salad but none of the salad caught our attention, so instead we got a wasabi crusted seared tuna with Parmesan asparagus risotto that was DELICIOUS! We split that as another appetizer. Then for our entrees I had the Halibut and my wife had the lamp chops. Everything was perfect. We had pre-ordered the chocolate souffle that was INCREDIBLE. I highly recommend this chocolate dessert. Since the dessert was delicious, my wife wanted to try another dessert which we did. I do not recall the name of the dessert but it was great also.

Everything was perfect. Ambiance was romantic. We had a candle on the table and a mini sign that said "Happy Anniversary" which was a very nice touch. We enjoyed the cocktails, wine, the food, and the dessert. Service was OUTSTANDING. Our server was great and every other person that helped us did great. Managers are very courteous and professional.

This is the best experience at a restaurant we had ever had. Everything was perfect. I definitely recommend this place for any occasion.

I took my family to La Table for a nice Mother's day lunch and was incredibly disappointed in the service. It took fifteen minutes from sitting down to get water, and another ten minutes before drink orders were taken. Once the drink orders were taken, they came in 3 different phases about ten minutes apart, so my dad was almost done with his drink by the time my sister got hers. Additionally, our appetizer came out later than our entrees. I am unsure if there were just issues with the bar or kitchen on this day, but for an almost 400 dollar lunch, I expect much greater service. There was no communication as to what the issue was, why things were slow, we were left wondering what was going on. What made the poor service more frustrating was the food was really good, and it would have been elevated by great service.

We dined at La Table/Chateau and had quite an excellent meal. The food was quite good (rabbit for me, duck for my wife; appetizers of octopus and the seafood sampler; millefoille for dessert); the wine and cocktails very nice; the ambience very pleasant; and the waitstaff top-notch (Mauricio was efficient, personable, and sensitive to our timing). Restaurants like this aren't inexpensive, but they are worth the money for special events, and I recommend La Table - Chateau for such events.
