We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch yesterday. We started with the shrimp cerviche and had the Thai Chicken salad as an entree. Great food, great service, great atmosphere.

Birthday celebration as indicated in the reservation. No acknowledgement of birthday. The dinner room was exceptionally cold to the point we wore our jackets and hats through dinner. But we left early as the slow, inattentive service was not acceptable for a higher end establishment. Not at all like our previous experiences at Maison Pucha. Hopefully it was an off day and not the new norm.

Excellent food - pricey but worth it. The following may be a bit of a strange comment...the service was excellent but maybe a bit too over attentive: we had several waiters all over us continually filling glasses; asking how were were; what we wanted; asking how the food was before I had taken a mouthful. I think though this shows how nice the restaurant is with this being my only comment

We took our daughter here to try French food and celebrate our youngest birthday. Everything we amazing from the food, the mocktails, and service. I did find it hard at times to hear our waiter, because of the mask but not a deal breaker. From the time we walked in and greeted I knew this was a restaurant I would love to return to.

Went for brunch on Saturday, looking over the menu they had steak frites which was an 8 ounce hanger steak with fries for $30. They also had steak and eggs which was a 10 ounce ribeye with two eggs and fries so it seemed to make sense to get the ribeye. We both ordered the ribeye mine medium, hers medium rare they both came out a little over cooked but was the absolute worst quality of steak I have ever had at a restaurant. I think they must have gotten the 30 steaks for $30 off the back of a pickup truck deal. Even with their steak knives we could not cut our steaks. Just cannot believe a restaurant of this quality and reviews would buy cook and serve such low quality meat, there was so much sinew the meat was inedible. We were so disappointed and upset that they would serve that quality of food we sent both back did not order anything else paid for our drinks and appetizer and left. Will never go back.

Visited: 5 Feb 2020 for Dinner.

Pros : Food was great, cocktails were balanced and made well, and the soufflé was absolutely delicious . Our waiter had a profound knowledge of the menu.

Cons: Seating is a bit tight inside. Also, my husband and I decided to share our orders, as we wanted to try a few of the dishes being our first time here. We did mention it to the waiter, just so that we can get some extra cutlery, and he kept saying "not a problem I will take care of it for you". He brought the dishes split instead (separate plating), which we thought was nice of them, and maybe because out table was cramped, however when the bill came there was a splitting charge on it . This was never mentioned to us. We had no problem paying the charge, but it was not good etiquette on their side.

The food presentation is always so beautiful here. The attention to detail is exquisite. Our water glasses were never empty, and there were lots of off the menu options. So many in fact, that I wish they had a board to highlight them all.

LOVED this restaurant! Probably one of my favorite places in Houston now. The food was AMAZING. The empanadas and french onion soup were some of the best I have ever had. The service was GREAT! They played great music. The drinks were really good. They had a large champagne selection. Everything was reasonably priced. 10/10 on everything. Loved it and a great value!
