    The restaurant is beautiful and the details did not go unnoticed, including the Texas/Louisiana map wax paper, Eunice coasters, the color scheme, etc… The restaurant offered great food and drink options and we enjoyed every bite of our order. I appreciated the authentic Louisiana flair!

    This is our new favorite spot for the most delectable brunch and cocktails! My husband and I started with the cornbread and I must say it’s the best we have ever tasted! Next we had the burger and gumbo; both delicious. The gumbo was my favorite. For drinks we had the Paper Plane, the Vesper, and the Corpse Reviver. Cameron is an excellent and very knowledgeable and passionate mixologist! He took great care of us and even educated us on the science of cocktails which was interesting! We will definitely be back and look forward to having those phenomenal scratch made biscuits at brunch!

    I’ve dined at Eunice before but this time I really was not satisfied with the service nor food. Our waitress was Anna Lee - and we had a party of 10. My friend was ordering for her & her fiancé & Anna Lee stops her mid sentence to say “wait, what?!.. you want 2 entrees?” That’s very unnecessary and rude, even if someone was ordering 2 entrees for them why stop & make that comment. Also as we were paying splitting tickets, she made a comment about her “not wanting anyone to try to leave without paying” excuse me?! Why would we do that? It seemed like a huge cultural disconnect. I did make the manager aware but was taken aback by his lack of understanding, care & poise. Seemed like a fast food manager who never apologized, nor seemed to even seem interested in advising Anna Lee on how that could be offense. It was a joke. The food was subpar for the price, temperature wise. There needs to be some serious consideration of how to bring better quality service to a beautiful establishment. It’s really misleading to have the aesthetic but bad service, incompetent management & subpar food.

    as always Eunice was great. We got there in time for their perfect happy hour. We ended up having two order of fried oysters, dan dan shrimp, raw oysters, then for main course a salad and a bowl of gumbo. Their fried oysters are fantastic as are the dan dan shrimp. I think their gumbo is some of the best in the city by far. Very dark rich roux and not watery at all - almost the texture of a good stew.

    Eunice obviously cares more about the quality of the service, food and ambiance than they do about cramming as many people as possible into the space and rushing them through dinner. The dining room was full of happy people enjoying their dining experience - without being crowded or rushed. The service is warm and considerate, the food - delicious! Loved it!

    This used to be my favorite! Short staff. No attention with 2 other people at the bar. Had to ask for napkins, utensils, attitude and a surprise over what charbroiled oysters are. Look up Dragos. More importantly don’t argue. Maybe a shift change. But holy moly how different than my other 10 visits. If you are expecting the pate’ it’s no longer on the menu. Of course that is of no fault of the staff but service missed everything. I wondered why it was so quiet at happy hour on Friday. I get it now. The ladies next to us had the same reactions. Checking in, no one was at the hostess station. I did go back to check in and they were very nice.

    Hi CherylA, We apologize that your recent experience at Eunice Restaurant wasn't up to par with your previous visits or our standard of service.

Thank you for taking the time to inform us on areas that need improvement and we hope to see you back soon. Sincerely, Evan Boiteaux (General Manager)

    This is a great place with delicious food. We had scallops from the raw bar (inventive and bursting with spicy flavour), and a solid gumbo to start. We split an awesome shrimp and grits and a yummy broccolini side. With a bottle of Viognier to sip, it was a delightful Sunday brunch. Great service and a nice ambience too. Would definitely return.

    I was very disappointed with the change in the menu! I missed the crispy fried oysters, but the gulf oysters on the half shell were excellent. Also I really wanted the appetizer quail that was on the menu, but is no longer ! The stuffed quail soup was good but very rich! Our server Sarah was excellent so our experience was ok!

    Shrinkflation has hit Eunice hard so much so the cost of the meal and experience outweighs the benefits. Additionally the two main courses we ordered were heavily salted.

    The gumbo was not on point. It was greasy and tasted old. The shrimp n grits were ok. The chicken/waffle sandwich was ok. Didn’t walk away from this experience wowed like my first visit. Could’ve been a bad day. And I don’t expect my meal to just be meehhh when I pay good money for it.

    We were disappointed in the quail gumbo and the wine choices. The cornbread was excellent, as usual, as were the oysters. We always enjoy the duck poppers and the tuna. The noise level was aggressive for the number of patrons. For the first time we did not have the outstanding experience we've enjoyed in the past.

    Last night my husband and I went to dinner at a Houston restaurant, Eunice. We had elected to use his OT reward card at this restaurant and the reward card was for $100. However, when we went to pay our bill the manager came to our table and said that they could not accept an Open Table reward card as Open Table had never reciprocated and reimbursed the restaurant. This was per the management she claimed.What can you do rectify this situation? Thank you for your assistance in this matter saving other Open Table members this hassle. We will probably never go back to that restaurant again.
