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

Great family brunch, beautiful atmosphere. Fantastic food. Very accommodating. Super clean all team wearing masks and taking precautions. Our daughter is wheelchair bound and they accommodated us with ease and access. :)
Can’t say enough about the food.

Food was trash. Hostess was rude and unwelcoming. Waiter was decent but nothing to rave about. Overall just a bad experience. This was my second time coming where the food was just underrated for the price.

Had lunch with my girlfriend for our Anniversary and the wine list(specializing in sparkling wine) was very extensive. With a list that large I’m not sure why there wasn’t a sommelier on the floor working and some of the wine is stored on the window sills baking in the sun. The food was great and beautifully presented. The donuts for dessert were absolutely blissful as well. However, our waiter did not seem very interested in our table or very happy to be there at all and it was a bit off putting. Overall, was a great place! Oh and the wines on the list are very well priced.

Thank you for your review. I am always happy to talk wine with anyone. Right now it is hard managing the new rules for dining and everyone is doing the best we can to keep guest happy. The wine list is digital with tasting notes on every bottle. in the future just please ask and we will be happy to assist you in your selection. We do not pay a sommelier to walk around so we can keep the price of the wines in your favor. The bottles in the windows are all dummy bottles as well.

It’s the perfect place to hang out on a beautiful day. We sat in the large covered porch with the fans going. Our mimosas made with freshly squeezed juice were the best. The calamari appetizer came right out and was a large portion that was fried perfectly. My husband’s hamburger was delivered but my scallops didn’t arrive for twenty minutes. Although both entrees were excellent, the horribly slow service took the glow off the experience. I don’t plan to make a second reservation.

I recognize that restaurants are still finding their way but I was disappointed that my my first choice of an entree was sold out. Not a complaint as we had a great experience.
