    We had a reservation for 7:45 on a Sunday. We were quite literally the only table in the place, but they provided us with amazing service and didn’t make us feel rushed at all (of fact our server tempted us with a dessert soufflé to end the meal. The food is delicious, and the ambience is great. One of my favorite restaurants in Houston.

    Better than expected. Our food was excellent, as was the service. My colleague’s osso buco was flambeéd at the table - a nice touch. It’s a bit expensive but you get what you pay for.

    We had a wonderful dinner that was made even better by the incredible service. The wait staff were attentive without being overbearing and we had food choice plus strong specials. Our food came out hot and delicious and everyone said their dish tasted delicious. Good range of cocktails, wine and beer plus a full bar meant we were all catered to. Will definitely be back as I was a first time visitor.

    The French cuisine was certainly lacking, and the sizes of the servings was way smaller than even authentically French restaurants assign to their foie gras. The duck tasted like it was made with bbq sauce, and the bouillabaise was more wet seafood than a seafood stew. The service and ambiance were great but unfortunately the food and the tab left a lot to be desired.

    Trout Almandine is the best ever! Quite delicious, as are the ceviche choices. Reasonable wine prices. Server was very accommodating, and we were there 5 hours! Desserts are more presentation than substance, but otherwise an outstanding dining experience.

    My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Maison Pucha. We were greeted with their delicious gougeres cheese puffs. We ordered the baked Brie as a shareable dish. The reality is that it is enough for four or six people as a starter. It was beautifully presented in a covered small casserole that kept it nicely warm and melted. We both eat (try to?) smaller portions these days. My wife had the gazpacho for her main course and I had the Ecuadorian ceviche. We shared the Wagyu empanadas. The dishes were so enjoyable. We finished dinner with the mignardises (miniature pastries) for her and noir et blanc soufflé for me. Simply exquisite! Oh, how can I forget the cocktails? My wife’s magic cosmo was a mysterious surprise. I won’t spoil the surprise. I had a Goodfella cocktail. A sort of combo of a Manhattan with a whiskey sour. Very clever. We can’t wait to go back!

    Was excited to try this place out, the ambiance was nice the cocktails were good the wait time between appetizers and entree was absurd and when the entree finally came out I was brought the wrong dish. I was over excited to try this place and it underwhelmed. Would I go back…. Maybe
