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

The food and ambiance are very good but unfortunately we had bad service. The waiter rarely checked on us and seemed annoyed to be waiting on us. The valet drive hit a sign in the parking lot with my car and when I told the head valet person, no one even apologized.

What a pleasant surprise! I’ve been wanting to try this restaurant for years and finally visited for lunch. It was exactly what I needed on a day that hadn’t been going well, allowing me to have a glass of wine and a selection of finger foods to try. The restaurant is beautiful, the service and food were amazing.

Good social distancing on the patio. Excellent fried chicken sandwich. Great waitstaff in masks. Just wish there weren't so much traffic on Westheimer, as it was a bit noisy.

This first time visitor was impressed. Not one thing I would change. Gabriel, our server, helped us narrow down some choices - everything f looked amazing in the menu. We all shared a few starters and got an entree. A ton of food and not a morsel that was not amazing. This is a must try.

We love A'boozy because of its consistently great service and menu. Always fresh food delivered to your table in a timely manner. The wine list is exceptional and the waitstaff is knowledgeable about pairings to enhance your dining experience. Only wish is that they would reserve outside seating as it is currently on a first come-first seated basis.
Overall, it is still one of our favorite neighborhood spots for lunch or special occasions.

Friendly staff; patio was not as socially distanced or as well ventilated as I would have preferred; pork chops were superb, ditto the doughnut holes dessert; waitstaff needs to be more attentive.

The food and wine selection was great. We had a Camille Saves champagne and a Bloody Mary for brunch, along with French onion soup, boquerones and an avocado-lump crab salad. The place was jammed on a Sunday at 1:30 and the volume inside made chatting difficult.

Went for birthday dinner. The French onion soup broth was so strong in flavor it could not be eaten. The ravioli had it seemed the same flavor as that of the French onion soup broth and so overpowering one couldn’t eat the ravioli. The skewers were okay but so fatty unenjoyable. And the base for the fish was also so overpowering. Just really not good food at all. .
