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.

    The biggest challenge was finding the restaurant and then knowing where to park. There was no sign for valet (except there was valet), so went into the garage. No signage or recommending if there for Eunice, head up past the valet spots and reserved. There was also no sign for a public elevator for an office building closed on the weekend. Had to take the stairs, which put us out on the side rear of the building. Quite a hot walk towards the ‘what you hope” is the restaurant. We had reservations and were placed in a small back room that had a TV. Not the vision I had for a birthday dinner. The food was delicious. The only other thing I suggest is for the waitstaff to emphasize that they are small shared dishes. That all being said, I will go back.

    Eunice is one of the most reliable restaurants in Houston. Chef Drake continually knocks it out of the park. All of the starters are must tries, but the cornbread is something to write home about. The service is top notch. The decor is light and inviting. I cannot say anything negative about this place. I just love it.

    Our wait person was Jazmine and she was delightful. We started with some small plates and she asked how we wanted our items to come out. She had several tables but was able to keep an eye on us and kept our wine glasses topped off at appropriate times. Our table was kept cleared during meal transitions. Offered dessert. Packed up our leftovers. Our meal was delicious, which we were looking forward to. We ate here a year ago and do not hesitate to tell all our friends in Austin if they are In Houston and close to this area they have to try this restaurant for the food is awesome.

    Made a last minute reservation for a Sunday brunch date with my boo - been wanting to try Eunice. Friendly hosts, light ambiance, attentive service, validated parking. Was seated by the windows which made the restaurant brightly lit. Split the duck poppers (delicious) and flounder (balanced and well prepared but needed an additional flavor/ingredient) as we weren’t too hungry. For drinks, my boyfriend got the puro passion (reposado) which was really refreshing with passion fruit notes and I got a french 75 (have had better). Overall, really cute and boujie ambiance and food was good but for the $ I would’ve expected to be more impressed by food and drink. Our bill was close to $100 for 2 drinks, an appetizer, and a shared main dish.

    My husband and I enjoyed our dinner date to Eunice. The Daiquiri was delicious and the appetizers were tasty. We ordered the cast iron cornbread and duck bacon poppers. I could eat those all day. Amazing flavor. We also had the gumbo and shrimp & grits. Both dishes had excellent flavors. The service was great and so was the ambiance. Highly recommend. Looking forward to trying the brunch one day.

    Beautiful and bright. We sat at the bar and had the perfect amount of attention. Best salad had plenty of beets and a delicious slightly sweet dressing. A generous serving of chicken and sausage gumbo provided high level of heat. Tuna tartare was tasty but was a lackluster presentation. It was spooned into a white bowl with a lot of sauce and no shape.

    The food was amazing, and that’s coming from 2 native Louisianans! Their cornbread was the best I’ve had in my life, the gumbo is a delicious dark roux, and the brussel sprouts are a zesty delight. Happy hour prices added to a fantastic night out. The bramble and vesper were tasty and not weak on the alcohol. Staff was warm and knowledgeable.

    Good food and excellent service, priced like unbelievable food. Houston is tough, multiple very good creole and Cajun restaurants, many better than this one and not nearly as expensive. Odd location in an office building; they’ve done their best decorating but limited by the sterile surroundings. Wine list also ok, but again wildly overpriced.
