    Expect to spend 50 to 100 per person depending on appetizers, drinks, and desserts. They have an amazing grilled chicken and fries for kids. My autistic, supertaster son was very very happy. The pureed (mashed) potatoes were the best I have ever had! They are valet parking only at dinner I think. We had handicap and had parked before 5pm. They spread diners out and are extremely attentive. The food and atmosphere are amazing. For 3 adults and one child... 3 main dinners, 2 appetizers, and one dessert shared, (we only drank water) , the bill was $312 and I added a 65 tip. This once a one time experience for us due to cost but I am so happy as it made a beautiful ending to the day for my husband's Birthday.

    Food was good. Service was not the caliber we expect from MP. We have been here several times and have always had a very good experience. Last night we brought some friends that had never been and it was very sub-par service as far as coming to the table to make sure we didn’t need anything or wanted to order additional wine etc. Had to ask our waiter multiple times to check on things we had ordered as it was taking quite a while for it to come out. Finally, when we were the last guests of the evening we were attended to a bit more promptly. For a thousand dollar dinner for (4) adults and (2) children.. the lack of service and professionalism was completely unacceptable.

    Always enjoy the Maison Pucha experience. The off the menu branzino fish was awesome. it is served pan seard and on a bed of crabmeat risotta and complimented with jumbo shrimp, crab fingers, mussels and other seafood delights! The waiters are ALWAYS well versed in the menu items. The shrimp appetizer left something to be desired and can be improved upon; nontheless, it was not bad.

We could not have had a better meal or more pleasurable experience. Definitely made our New Years Eve memorable.

    Significantly overpriced for very small portions. Duck l'Orange consisted of two small pieces of duck that were overdone instead of the duck breast cooked medium. French Onion soup was delicious. Wait service was extremely slow.

    We were a party of eight and enjoyed the restaurant very much. The food was good. I would recommend the beet salad and coq au van. My friends enjoyed the grouper , duck and hangar steak very much. Those that ordered the bouillabaisse were not as pleased. While the stew was good, it was a small portion and they had to ask for bread.

    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.

    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!
