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 great. Salad with blackened shrimp was too salty. Service wasn’t great - seemed understaffed.

I grew up in southwest La not far from the town Eunice where Chef Drake Leonard’s hails from. My husband and I have been attempting reservations to the restaurant for some time now and we were not disappointed! The food was superb - those brusselsprouts are to die for as well as the bbq shrimp. Fabulous addition to the Houston foodie scene!

We came in straight from Lake Charles Louisiana for our anniversary. The ambience was definitely impressive and the owner made us feel special. Eunice came highly recommended by our friend Jeremy Ward, and it didn’t disappoint! Thank you again!

They no longer have valet parking and the Parking Garage is horrible. There are lots of guest spots on the first floor but you are required to park on 3 or higher. The traffic is dangerous and people do not pay attention going around the corners. Probably will not go back until Valet parking is back.

Love Eunice but like most Houston restaurants they are having a challenge being able to sustain and diversify happy hour cocktail and menu options, etc. We ordered 3 dozen oysters. They were the size of a quarter. They were delicious but it's obvious management is trying to recover financially from the months they were closed. To preserve happy clients most restaurants will have to figure out how to balance these challenges and keep their customer base.

We intended to eat on the patio, but the sun would not let us be great. Distance was kept between tables and patrons. The service was great and food was good. We had the fried quail, oysters, gumbo, crab tartine, salad and pulled burrata. The pulled burrata I really enjoyed, very different with amazing biscuits. Everything was seasoned well, will definitely be back!

Perfect piece of fish served as requested --- sauce on the side because of dietary restrictions. COVID concerns respected and well managed. Staff highly attentive; never had to ask, they just seemed to appear and disappear as needed. Could not have asked for or expected a better experience. Lance

Very good SWLa Cajun Inspired food - not NOLA creole - which is hard to find in Houston.

Shrimp and Grits more of the low country style and is a fabulous dish.

The weekend brunch potato/egg/hollandaise entree is to die for.

Wine list is good, you’ll find something to go with your meal.

This time the service wasn’t so good, they mixed the drinks, entrees took so much time to arrive, maybe because it was friday night and it was full ...

The platea were very good, but after having been there several times the menu is a bit short of choices and it is not so easy to find something different... maybe have some extra daily alternatives will help

This was our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised. First off, the $20 express lunch can't be beat for it's value. They offer up probably the best gumbo in all of Houston. The service was awesome, the food delicious and our experience met all expectations.

Excellent atmosphere and fantastic staff. Highlights for me were the yellowtail poke-style ceviche appetizer and the amazing hearth roasted oysters. Definitely bold in terms of flavors - the gulf fish was far too buttery for my girlfriend, but I loved it; salad was much too bitter for me but she though it was fantastic. Cocktails were slightly on the sweet side but all in all I highly recommend giving it a try.

Went here to celebrate my birthday, and was blown away by how good the food is! Had not tried, but had heard good things about this place. Well I was really surprised as it was beyond my expectations! I had the shrimp and grits, and my hubs had the burger. Both had a great culinary twist to them and were not the same old renditions of these classics. We also had the quail (delish) and the Dan Dan shrimp, which we ended up ordering seconds of! Don’t miss the biscuits and the bread pudding for dessert! We will be back!

We are from New Orleans and have been looking forward to visiting Eunice. We were not at all disappointed. The quality of personnel, food, ambiance - all made us feel right at home. There were so many interesting things on the menu and lucky for us, our server recommended we approach the menu ‘tapas’ style or family - to be shared. In this way, we were able to try many different offerings, which was so much fun. We had fresh oysters, scallops, the broccolini, and the gulf fish. All so amazing. The cocktail list is also adventurous yet lives up to high expectations. We took home the key lime tart to enjoy later but can’t wait to go again and try an entirely new set of options!
