Restauranteur Shawn Virene put the POP into Houston with his wildly successful a’Bouzy. This champagne-fueled spot located in the tony River Oaks neighborhood of town attracts a stylish crowd all day. The bar is always bustling and the patio echoes with the cry – “a Bouzy!” every time a bottle is sabered tableside. In fact, most tables will have multiple wine buckets close by, keeping the bubbly cool. The fresh, ripe American menu features seasonal seafood, salads, small-shareable plates, large raw bar and prime meats. The wine list curated by Virene, is both the best-priced on bubbly and wines in the city. The interiors have a sophisticated rustic vibe with exposed brick, reclaimed woods and a color palate of creams and blues. The effervescent appeal of bubbles is reflected in a light installation that mimics bubbles floating overhead. The spacious patio is a magnet for the stylish clientele that enjoy the year-round garden. The best thing is Champagne and wine is at or below retail

Slowest service I’ve ever had. Waiter never asked us if we wanted anything, had to track him down to put food and drink orders in.

Very rude, unprofessional hostess to begin with. Then the room was freezing cold, no service. We had to actually wave for waiters to get their attention for service, food came in different time(5 min apart), quality was bad. French onion soup tasted like tomato paste with sugar, shrimp popcorn was cold , old and tasteless... worst brunch experience

Love it when you get a professional waiter. Gabriel knew exactly what he was doing and was very familiar with all the details of the menu and expansive drink options. I figured he had worked there for years . . . nope . . . months.

Was initially concerned about some of the negative reviews regarding mostly service concerns.. however we had a Great time. Paul the waiter was attentive, engaging and knowledgeable. Had the oscietra caviar and all the fixings with heavy champagne glass pours, to be honest it was my first caviar with fixings experience and it had a great briny flavor, however I feel if you are liberal with all the fixings a lower end caviar will likely suffice..he recommended the middle tier choice of sturgeon as his second favorite, we had a nice delatour from 1996 kindly decanted, ponme frites with different aioli dippings were phenomenal , the oysters tasted fresh and distinct and were from 6 different regions, the French onion soup was silky and rich and with great flavor and plenty of cheese..the deviled eggs had great bacon Lardon and the toppings were simple but delicious, they came with three perfect for party of two.. the short rib skewers had pretty nice chimichurri flavor but were a little dry and nothing to die over, the octopus tasted amazing, was soft and cut like a tender piece of meat.. donut ls dessert was huge and out of this world, simple but a lot of flavor and hit the spot..very nicely presented food and overall ambiance throughout.. dimly lit.. champagne bottles displayed everywhere as part of decor, table covered in red rose petals for valentines weekend.. will 100% return the next time we come to Houston

Amazing service by waiter Paul and the food and drinks are top tier! Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Houston it never dissapoints. I am obsessed with the stuffed salmon best meal I've ever had. So much fun celebrating Valentine's there. Will recommend A'Bouzy to everyone because it's that good!

Overall quite good. Servers brought out some main courses early so we sent them back but arrived cold to the table when it was time. Otherwise, a near perfect Valentine’s Day.

Our server Martin was super nice and attentive. The atmosphere was chic with a sophisticated and sexy energy. Drinks from the bar...AMAZING! Food was good but a little shy of the bold flavors I adore. All in all, a perfect girls night dinner.

Amazing venue for meeting up with my girlfriends. Food was wonderful we had tartar and deviled eggs, the crunch of the bacon really made it pop. I defiantly recommend this location if you are looking for fun and outgoing.

Bestie and I sat out on the patio and had a wonderful evening. We had a bottle of Prosecco to start with and the deviled eggs for an appetizer. My favorite entree is the stuff Salmon with Risotto. Oh, it is so delicious. Then we had the chocolate cake for dessert with coffee and Bailey's. Our waiter was attentive and even the Valet took good care of my car! Love this place for a fun evening out with friends.

We had the very best service and the food was amazingly fresh. Everything went well and timed out perfectly. Really appreciated the Covid-19 protocol being followed. The valet service was great, too I drive a large truck so I always worry about it being parked. The wine and champagne select is massive. Had a great time in a causal atmosphere with great service.

Made reservations at the recommendation of a friend. Very impressed, food was outstanding. Despite pre-arrival plans, service started out choppy. Entrees arrived, one was incorrect. Server appropriately made adjustments but honestly, restaurant was not anywhere near capacity so unsure why pre-laid plans and entree issues happened. Will go back there again as this is clearly an 'it' place to go. Kudos to valet parker - he made our evening by being very polite and even snapping photos for us at photo wall.
