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.

Met some friends for what we hoped to be a special evening, but the extremely slow service, lukewarm food (I had the mignon poivre. Medium rare. Received it rare and lukewarm. Nobody checked it was done right) was nothing to brag about. It's a beautiful restaurant, so you would expect service to only support it.

I've noticed a gentleman walking around asking each table about how their evening was going. Except ours. Hmm. Profiling? Maybe they cater to only a certain audience (you follow?). That's fine. You just won't see me or my friends again.

My spouse and I went there for our 39th wedding anniversary. The wine list is extensive, with some of the wine being reasonably affordable. The sommelier did recommend the bottle we ordered and it was less expensive than another we were considering, but went very nicely with my spouse's tasting menu and the kale salad and lobster I ordered. Speaking of the lobster, it was fabulous and prepared with different accompaniments than I would normally think to pair it with; the sliced peppers on top of the lobster were reasonably spicy, more like a mild to medium jalapeno. My spouse enjoyed her tasting menu, particularly the branzino fish. We topped off the dinner with the chocolate souffle for two, which was fabulous. My spouse omitted the dessert she was to receive on the tasting menu in favor of the chocolate souffle. The wait staff was attentive, without being too cloying, and all wished us a happy anniversary. There was even a card on the table wishing us a happy anniversary. The time between courses was perfect; so often I feel rushed through a nice dinner, but La Table - Chateau spaced the courses so that our meal was leisurely, with plenty of time between courses to digest the prior course and engage in conversation. All in all, a most pleasurable evening!

La Table always delivers delicious food with impeccable service. The food is prepared with absolute care and attention. The staff are incredibly attentive and provided for our every need. The caramelized cheese souffle was creamy and delicious, the filet au poivre was perfectly cooked and melted in my mouth. Dessert was a tough choice - chocolate soufflé, crème brûlée or chocolate caramel choux. We'll have to go back to try the choux, but don't regret the choices we made. We'll be back again for another meal soon.

La Table - Château is an elegant, very quiet space which, to me, makes it enjoyable. The food is delicious. Our service yesterday was incredibly slow; our coffees arrived after our dessert was eaten, after we had to flag down our waiter to check on them which was a little difficult by itself. Also had to flag down the waiter to request our check, weren't sure if this was part of the process for lunch, but it seemed unusual and inconvenient given the scarcity of our server. Finally, given that it's a fundraiser, I believe the server should have offered us Restaurant Weeks menus at the beginning rather than upon our request.

Marucio took excellent care of us. Dinner was excellent, service was excellent, our table location was fantastic. The staff made us feel extremely comfortable. The chocolate soufflé with ice cream is an excellent way to end a fantastic dinner. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the experience.

We had reserved a table in Th Château but when we arrived they said our reservation was for the Marche more causal Dinig. I had to wait for approval for a table when in fact the place upstairs wa virtually empty. Only two tables had a reservation. I don’t know who made the mistake but quite agrevating! I’ll call direct for future reservations in Houston
Food was only so so... I won’t be returning

Should have known it was going to be bad when our couple friends showed up before us, ordered a cocktail at the bar, and were told that they ran out of rum. Who runs out of rum before a Saturday evening?! We were sat and it took about 10 min to see our server to order cocktails. (Keep in mind the place is half empty, it's 7:45pm). I ask for a dirty gin martini with one olive, I get a clean martini with two. My gal pal and I get menus and it takes them almost 10 minutes to get 2 more for our husbands. We order an appetizer, foie gras and some charcuterie -both decent however the dirty empty dishes sat in the middle of the table after we had been done for 10 min. By this time our cocktails have been empty for 15 min and it seems the only service we're getting is from the water person. It's awful. At this point I'm embarrassed as we've talked up this place to our couple friends and now here we are, a basically absent server, empty cocktails and empty dirty plates. This isn't the La Table we've come to know. However, it's soon realized that this may be the reason they're half empty on a Saturday evening. Needless to say, the manager was hailed, we were offered to be taken care of personally by him, we declined as we have little patience for such tomfoolery. This is Houston -our choices are infinite! We can get much better service elsewhere...and we did. We got up, left, and finished our dinner at another venue. I'll close by saying, I don't see this place staying open much longer. Half empty on a Saturday? Tsk tsk tsk.

I have been to La Table many times to celebrate special occasions. I have always enjoyed the restaurant. The last couple of times I have been there I have noticed that restaurant is slipping. I celebrated fathers day my last visit. To start off there was no silverware on my table. Food was served without anybody noticing this. The ceviche did not taste fresh, the filet mingon was over cooked. The coffee cups that were set out at the coffee bar did not match the saucers. There was also no cream or milk set out at the coffee bar. The restaurant is an upscale restaurant with no dress code enforced. There were people at the brunch wearing T shirts and cut off shorts.

Very disappointing to see what I once thought was Houston's best to slide into mediocrity.

Where do I start? I enjoy this restaurant and have had very satisfactory experiences eating here but they really missed the mark this Father’s Day. We were first seated at a window table. While waiting for our third party to arrive, we were told that we had to move because “someone important” was to be seated there. Uh, o.k., guess they didn’t see my husband’s picture in the Chronicle today (and not in the obituaries). The next table we moved to had a dirty tablecloth & they were in no hurry to change it so we moved yet again. Now to the “brunch” at $65 per person. The waiters bring to your table breakfast food- croissants, rolls, eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes & French toast (filler food). Then if you are still hungry you can go to the “stations” for shrimp, roast beef, salmon etc.. Our Diet Coke and cappuccino were extra. The wait staff acted as if they had just started today. Very unorganized and they seemed confused. Then of course the bill came. Charged for a mimosa that the waiter said he knew we didn’t have but left it on the bill anyway. I have had brunch at other restaurants that charge a similar price and they knock your socks off with presentation and food choices. Somehow, we left feeling duped. Just wanted to share so others are forewarned.

Everything was presented nicely, and I appreciated the little touches like the tiny after-meal truffles. However, the food was pretty disappointing for the price, especially the tableside lamb. Coffee and opera cake were amazing and the service was very careful.

My husband and I dined at Le Table for our anniversary. The service was impeccable, the was food delicious and the staff was attentive and friendly, while being super professional. The restaurant has two private rooms upstairs that would be perfect for a group. Downstairs is the more casual bar and market restaurant. We had a drink at the bar, which offers a happy hour special of wines by the glass or bottle. Wine Bottle purchase includes a tomato flatbread that was quite tasty.

While I do recommend this restaurant, there are a few things for which I was little disappointed. First, the service - the speed and attention from the server was not good and I don't remember her checking on us much at all during dinner. She did ask us if we wanted coffee with our soufflé which we did but were reluctant to order thinking it would take a while. It did. She may have been a little busy. Secondly, it was my wife and my 17th anniversary which I noted in the reservation, yet nobody said anything! The hotel we stayed at welcomed us at check in with a "Happy Anniversary!" and even sent up a bottle of champagne and some chocolates and strawberries! Not even a complimentary croissant from La Table... Also, if you want to request a special table apparently you need to call ahead and put down a deposit. There really are no bad tables, per se, but there are a few that I would say are better than most, but when I asked for one of those I was told they had paid a deposit for that table. And finally, there was no music of any kind playing. So, the ambience seemed a bit flat. Some quiet background music at a minimum would be nice.

Despite the above I would still recommend this restaurant. The food was very good! Also, it had a very nice décor and overall ambience, despite the lack of any music.

We will be back, just probably not on our 18th anniversary.
