Named affectionately after executive chef Drake Leonards’ South Louisiana hometown, Eunice offers a modern Cajun-Creole brasserie-style menu inspired by the flavors of his childhood.

The seasonally-inspired menus marry European influences with the ingredients and foodways of the Gulf Coast. Enjoy the dining experience inside at the bar, at a table along the floor to ceiling windows, or outside on our patio.

We offer happy hour every day from 3 pm to 6 pm including 75 cent oysters, half off snacks, beer, specialty cocktails, and house wines by the glass.

    Food was amazing. I had the sparerib. While sparerib is billed as the star of the show the risotto was definitely not an afterthought. Wife had the gulf fish which on this night was flounder. With a few sprinkles of flaky salt she said was perfect. We ordered the cornbread and broccolini for sides(table share portion) excellent as well. Only gripe would be the portion size of the charbroiled oysters (4 for $16) two more and might have gotten another order because they were delicious as well

    We had a really nice evening at Eunice. I was impressed that my partner's birthday (which I had noted on the reservation) was recognized immediately by our server, Sarah. I have to mention this because I'm amazed how many times restaurants do not acknowledge a special event if I list one on the reservation. Anyway, the food was good, the cocktails go down easy and it's a fun place. We'll definitely be back!

    We were celebrating 2 birthdays and let the restaurant know via open table app. We ordered and the server asked if we cared about the sequence of the order which was odd. The entrees came before the appetizers and salad. The wait staff made us feel rushed. They took some plates away before we finished the entrees. The water then asked, “you don’t want any dessert do you?” (More like a statement). The birthdays were never acknowledged. The restaurant is loud. The food is very good and reasonably priced. The service and ambiance was terrible. Recommend taking celebrations elsewhere.

    We made reservations for brunch and were seated immediately. We ordered a craft of mimosas which you were able to select between 2 juices. The juice choices were orange, cranberry, pineapple and fresh squeezed grapefruit. My only complaint was there was only one fresh squeezed juice. :). We ordered appetizers- roasted oysters. Which were very tasty. Main meal I had shrimp and grits which was very enjoyable. Others in my party had roasted chicken and steak which everyone enjoyed their meal. The dishes were very flavorful and delicious. Definitely, will return for other menu options.

    Great food! Waiter was not interested in waiting on just the 2 of us women. He spent more time focused on the old men at the table next to us and was not friendly or attentive. I will likely not return or recommend unless you come with your husband which they seem to pay more attention to for up sale and tip.

    The food was fantastic! The wait staff was very attentive. The manager visited our table several times to check on us which was very nice. They were aware that we were in Houston for a surgery so the restaurant (manager and waiter) treated us to Brussel sprouts (soooo good) and TWO desserts! We highly recommend Eunice! Thank you so much for helping us relieve some stress of the upcoming surgery!

    Having been here a few times for brunch but never for dinner, I thought we would choose Eunice for a family celebration. Our server was very professional and attentive even though the restaurant was quite crowded. I ordered a Cosmo though good , was a little tart. I order the corn bread, duck popper and Dan Dan Shrimp for the table. The cornbread and shrimp were fantastic but having the duck on the sharing menu........please, get real, for the portion you get, that was ridiculous. Two of our group ordered the fish of the day and 2 the pork chop. Both pork chop eaters were not overly impressed and my husband is a connoisseur when it comes to chops. The fish was very good but for the portion size and the non existent cauliflower puree ......disappointing. On a positive note, they were very sweet to provide 2 free deserts for the 2 people celebrating their birthdays and for that we are appreciative. All in all I for one was very disappointed given the good experiences we have had doing brunch. I would not recommend for dinner

    We like eating at the bar and went early (5:30) on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was pretty full by 6:30. So we had pretty good attention until then. One item on our order was missed. And I would probably have had a second cocktail if we had a little more attention. But overall, the food was excellent (especially the oysters) and we have a very nice time.

    Excellent lunch spot, date spot or whatever. The atmosphere was amazing, and the creole/Cajun dishes were sublime. I was very delighted with the appetizers as well as the main dish, the desserts were to die for, loved it. The servers were courteous, efficient and polite. Can't wait to return and I won't hesitate to recommend Eunice.
