Le Colonial - Houston
A lavish downstairs dining room is adorned with period photography, overhead fans and leather banquettes, and flanked by a Parisian-Style sidewalk café. A dramatic staircase leads to a second level lounge, where a large bar, mahogany millwork and plush seating create the perfect atmosphere for cocktails and light fare. Custom louvered shutters surround the west veranda, while an additional terrace on the north side is fully enclosed and features additional dining tables. The Lotus Room, anchored by a mural created by Swedish muralist Jonas Wickman rendered in gentle tropical tones, seats up to 14 for private dinners and wine tastings.
Dress code is business casual.
Gratuity will be added to parties of 6 or more. We only allow a maximum of 4 for splitting checks.

Outstanding as usual. This Last Supper so called because Houston area restaurants were closing to inside seating for the 14 days maybe longer. That said we had a delicious green shrimp curry, Brussels sprouts and bak choy with broccoli to make a delicious meal.
Our daughter’s birthday
Fabulous Sidecars, red snapper, and crime brûlée.
Always enjoy this restaurant!!!!!
Try the bar upstairs too!
Delish as always.
The food was really good, it came out rather fast, would have liked to have had more time between ordering, appetizer and mains. If it was more spread out we would have ordered additional drinks. It was very noisy.
The waiter asked if we had ever been there but made no suggestions. $15 whiskey sour with not even a cherry!
The service was really bad!!! No one came to get the drink order for like 15 mins!! Next time I’ll think about taking my guests there again.
Ambience and food always stellar here! Brother and sister in law in from Austin and they loved the experience at this restaurant!
Great food and great atmosphere!
Le Colonial - Houston exceed our expectations every time with delicious food, excellent service, and lovely ambience - a combination rare to find all in one restaurant! Always look forward to the next visit! Thanks team Le Colonial!
Excellent in every way. Than you so much.
The food is always fantastic, but if you're looking for a place to have a nice chat, it's a bit loud!
Always love Le Colonial. The food is fresh with vibrant flavors. Service is impeccable.
Food is always top notch here, and the waitstaff is very attentive. I even had the Manager come over when he saw me trying to prepare my Vietnamese Coffee. He took away the press and brought more milk when he realized what was provided was insufficient. Great attention to detail.
Excellent food and service. The quality of ingredients were over the top. Highly recommend
There was a drunk lady on the elevator blocking and pushing people
Perfect evening. Again.
Fantastic wait staff! My water never even reached half empty. The waiters know the menu so well to offer suggestions and recommendations. The atmosphere is incredibly upscale yet relaxing. 11/10 would recommend
Totally enjoyed the meal...the valet service ruined the evening. They made us wait 15 minutes for our car while we waited in the cold and rain. They charged $9 for parking and shorted us $10 in change. The shame, this is a direct reflection on the overall service of the restaurant. When you pay $200 for a nice dinner for two you don’t expect the valet to ruin it. The restaurant was made aware and did nothing but distance themselves from the valet and said they would try to get back our overcharge.
I called for the director of services of the restaurant and his voicemail message dropped your call. It went to dead silence.
Very disappointed in the restaurants response.
Hello Thank you so much for your feedback. Im sorry if the line dropped when you tried calling me but feel free to call and press extension 1 and the hostess can get a hold of me. I have communicated your experience with the River Oaks District Valet and will be having them reach out to you directly but we will need your contact information. You can call me at 713.629.4444 ext 1 and ask for Martin. We are very responsive but unfortunately cannot control phones being dropped. Regards, Martin
Birthday. Great food but a bit noisy
Always enjoy ...however a little loud for us to have a business discussion. And we were one of the first to be seated at 12 noon but one of the last served.
I enjoyed the lunch at the restaurant.
It was very comfort feeling for me as if I am in Vietnam.
As Asian person, I highly recommend to go this restaurant and hope to visit again in the future
Consistently a nice place for a great meal. This is one of our favorite restaurants when we want a break
Le Colonial is my favorite Houston restaurant.
The food, the service, and the ambiance are all wonderful.
Food and specialty cocktails were underwhelming. Service was only okay, the waiter was very blah and didn’t smile until it was time to checkout. This is a restaurant I will not return to.
Le Colonial is definitely a hot spot in River Oaks. My husband and I greatly enjoyed the food and found the upstairs night club pretty amusing!
The small plates were excellent - some of the best dumplings I’ve had, but we both thought the entrees left something to be desired. The wine selection was pretty good too, we got a great, reasonably priced bottle of Bordeaux which hit the spot. We’ll definitely be back for an after work snack.
Only complaint was that the tables were really packed in, beyond just cozy. We got seated on the end next to a service stand and it really took away from the experience. The staff asked me a few times to scoot in in order to serve other tables. Not what you’d expect for such a pricey meal. So, you may make a special note when booking, as there are a lot of good tables.
The signature Le Colonial red snapper is simply wonderful (and gluten free)!
Wow! Where do I begin?! This place has a style of its own.
Le Colonial has an amazing food selection. I had the lamb chops with an amazing coriander sauce. The chips were cooked to perfection and I paired it with a couple of the delicious cocktails they offer. I highly recommend giving this place a try.
Service and food were excellent, a great Valentine’s Day for me and my wife.
Don’t overcharge me just because it’s Valentine’s Day you crooks. They had a set menu, and they only let you pick a two course meal plus a basic dessert for $85. The two dishes i ate normally are $45 COMBINED on the regular menu, but they wanna charge me $85 for it. Set menu’s suck. Never coming back here again but not because of the stupid set menu, but because they are trying to act like United airlines overcharging for peak times. People, the food doesn’t cost you any more or any less wholesale because its Vday. Why do you feel the need to rip your customers off. Poor ownership if you ask me. Nobody likes Greedy businesses. Oh and the valet stole a stick of gum from my cup holder. How do i know?? Because i counted 4 pieces right before i got out of the car, and the second i got back in there was only 3 left. Yes i was testing them and they failed
One of my favorite restaurant in Houston, always a great experience.
The food and service is always very good and consistent.
