    We greatly enjoyed our first visit to the Blue Tuba! The service was great, our meals were delicious, and the wine and cocktails were superb. Excited to finally have a European restaurant (with a Texas spin) in Houston. We will definitely return.

    Our first visit was a success and we would highly recommend that you try it. This is a family owned business and all of the staff were terrific. Of course the food was delicious. My wife and I wanted to try different dishes, so we ordered appropriately: CEVAPCICI as one appetizer —delicious rolls of seasoned ground beef with a mustardy dipping sauce and a light tomato sauce. We each had a salad—I had the Greek salad, beautifully prepared and plentiful, my wife had the Blue Tuba salad. For mains, my wife loved the chicken schnitzel—crisply cooked and not oily at all; I ordered two appetizers, the mussels—fresh, plump and cooked in a savory broth accompanied with fries (they needed to be crispier), as well as the Polish Taco—kielbasa sausage with the fixings—delicious. Give this a try for a little delicious variety of food. We will definitely return.

    Blue Tuba is a fun new restaurant with unique dishes that you can’t get at other spots and probably won’t want to take on making at home. I enjoyed the food and the space. Excited to see how this new spot evolves.

    This new restaurant is trying to be an upscale venue, but service was off, and the music doesn’t match the atmosphere. Also, entree portions were rather small and everyone at the table felt every entrée was $10 overpriced. I don’t see this restaurant lasting very long at their current pricing level.

    I highly recommend Blue Tuba European restaurant for anyone looking to try delicious Traditional European dishes like Hungarian Goulash and French Bouillabaisse and Texas fusion on European Tacos are delicious.

    The food was really quite wonderful. The service also outstanding. I had a minor issue with one of my drinks and they went through a lot of effort to make it right. All in all, we will be back! I need to still try the paprikash and the goulash!
