Le Colonial is a celebration of the seductive spirit and vivid flavors of 1920’s French Colonial Southeast Asia, located in the heart of one of America’s largest and most diverse cities.
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.
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.
Pursuant to local mandates, all guests are required to wear a mask when entering the restaurant. If you are not wearing a mask you will be denied entry.

We were celebrating a Birthday. We were seated outside but our service was very very slow. It took us 3 1/2 hours for lunch and we kept having to ask for our waiter. Food was good though.

Excellent food. Service was ok. Not that they were not attentive but did wait a bunch for a fill on champagne as well as dessert. Greeting staff needs to be a bit more receiving. Again, great place for food but the staff was a little short.

The appetizers were great (dumplings and spring rolls). The main course was not the most amazing but the ambiance and people watching made up for it.

Fantastic food & they were very accommodating about our request to be seated as socially distanced as possible.

They seemed to be following safe covid guidelines, although I would recommend going earlier as it did start to get more crowded as the evening went on. I’m very covid cautious & felt comfortable.

Good Evening, Thank you for sharing your feedback. We would love to learn more of your most recent experience. Please note that we take our allergy procedures extremely seriously and have much of our menu labelled with most allergies. Most of the items that contain fish sauce can most certainly be made without as long as we are informed. Please share with me your feedback by emailing me at martin@lecolonialhouston so that I can follow up and make it right. Thank you, Martin

It was louder than usual upstairs but the music was great. Service was the worst I’ve ever had at Le Colonial. We had to flag down our waitress every time and each time we tried to give our order she would rush us and was extremely dismissive and rude.

Amazing as usual! This time their Valentine's day special dinner menu was delicious! Their Lobster Bisque and the tuna tartare was out of this world. And the lamb chops just melt in your mouth. Staff was super nice like usual.
