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

We dined in for brunch for my mom’s birthday and the food was amazing! We were sat right away at 2pm and Even was able to get an outside table. It was our first time here and we will definitely be back! We had the shrimp tacos and chicken fried steak dishes and it was delicious. The ambiance was really nice and even cute areas to get great photos. Our waiter was great as well and I don’t have one bad thing to say :)

Birthday Brunch!
Service was ridiculously slow. Example dozen of oysters should not take over 30 min to be brought to the tables
We were not given enough plates /silverware or menus to start with. Food was coming super slow . Was asking for multiple sparkling water bottles -never got as many as we asked for .

We went to A’Bouzys to celebrate my birthday and all I can say it was amazing from beginning to end. We loved our waiter Jay who was very attentive to our every wish. It was wonderful to engage him and learn about some of his favorites on the menu. We had the Barrata and peach appetizer and it was over the top along with our favorite champagne Billencart Salmon which went perfect with the snails and stuffed salmon. Finished with the bread pudding which is like no other I have tasted. The experience was fabulous in every way. Thank you Jay and all the staff at A’Bouzy’s for making my day special!

My wife and I enjoyed a lunch at a'Bouzy. The restaurant has a large covered outdoor sitting space. That's perfect for autumn lunch/branch. They serve an impressive arrays of wines and champagnes/sparkling wines with very reasonable prices. This place is a must for every occasion of our little celebrations and hang-out. During lunch hours food is rather Americans. Do not expect sophisticated French cuisines.

Had brunch with my friend and it was absolutely amazing. Food was so good and we got there a before our reservation and they were able to accommodate us right away when it was very busy! This is one of my favorite places now after only going there one time!

Great experience. We went for Sunday brunch with a party of 6. We started on the patio then migrated inside as the day warmed up; service team was very accommodating! Food was great. Champagne was perfect.

I highly recommend their brunch. I've never been there for dinner because it's a bit out of my price range. But their brunch is more reasonable. They also have a great mimosa deal.

Great attentive service! Disappointed in two of our four dinners. The scallops were obviously cut in half to look like six, when they just cut three in half, come on! Then the trout was tasteless, had to ask for salt and pepper. The stuff salmon was very good and so was the NT strip. The drinks were good, the prickly pear rita was really good, the french rita was not. Our waiter was awesome. Not sure we'll be back, very expensive for two of our four dinners to be acceptable?

Food was great! Mimosas were good as well. We sat on the patio and it got a little hot the longer we sat. In the Texas heat I recommend sitting inside even though they have fans outside.

I visited a month ago for my mom’s birthday and it was a lovely lunch. The service was amazing, the food fantastic, overall just incredible. Due to that, I thought it’d be a great brunch place for my friends who just got engaged. We all went together and it was just awful. The server saw us maybe a total of 4 times over almost 2 hours, not showing up to take our entree order for almost 40 minutes after the appetizers came out. Then the entrees were ice cold, which was very disappointing. I understand it was Labor Day Sunday, but it was just very disappointing.

Honestly this is my fifth time at this establishment, and I never had a bad experience , but last night I had one of the worst wait staff. My food was cold, I ask for bread for my table, it took 40 min for bread. It took another waiter to get it for me. I ask my server why it took so long to get the bread he said that the kitchen is busy, for some bread ? Ok I then place my order for my dinner, I waited almost an hour, again. I ask my waiter why is our diner taking so long, he responded by saying because you ordered medium well. By then my guest and I were upset at that time . I ask did a manager who made excuses for his staff and totally disregarded our complaint. well my night ended by apologizing to my fiancé, because I promised him a good experience. Then I look at my bill I was charged $6 for 2 orders of bread . I received six pieces of bread . I will not be returning because I felt the management did not handle the situation properly.

We ordered a bottle of champagne that took 15 minutes to get when he can to our table finally after going to the manager first he told us our bottle was cold. We had to pick another bottle. Food was okay. I have been many times before but this time will be my last. Took forever to get our check. It wasn’t packed so I am not really sure why the service was so slow
