The food is pretty good. But the soufflés are large and it’s too much of one taste and one texture. I think it would be a much more successful experience if there was a ‘flight of soufflés’ option, where you could maybe get 3 smaller soufflés.
Service by management and the hostess was great! More disappointing service by our server. When we told our server that 2 of the soufflés got switched (one friend got cauliflower and Brie, and one got salmon), his response was: that happens sometimes, they all look alike.

We were celebrating a belated birthday. My friend had not dined there yet, since she had just moved to the area, actually down the street from the restaurant, so I took her there. She went nuts! We split everything so we could both enjoy lots of different tastes and enjoyed every bite!! Thank you for doing that for us!

We stopped in for dessert after eating downstairs. Very friendly, excellent staff. Soufflés were super good - we had chocolate; bread pudding and bananas foster. Highly recommended.

Rise #2 in The Galleria area of Houston never misses. The service is always great and the menu items are consistently outstanding. The combination works to result in a memorable experience. We have recommended Rise #2 to many friends and acquaintances. All have come back with a sincere "Thank You" and "Strong Rise #2 Endorsement"; especially, for the Staff Members. Rise #2 is always among our favorite dining spots.

We were able to speak easily above the noise. The souffles were delicious. I wish you could somehow get a flight of souffles. We tried to share among ourselves.

Never had a savory soufflé but my goodness I’m sold! We had their Southwest Chicken one along with their Corn and Serrano.
Of course we topped it off with the Gran Marnier soufflé for dessert.
The cheese tray was delightful. The soufflés were so light and very flavorful. The Serrano one certainly has a kick to it. And ending with French pressed coffee was just perfect!
Our server was lovely and we had the best birthday celebration!
Can’t wait to come back!

We had the best time! Service was top phenomenal. Ambiance and decoration was beautiful and festive! I would highly recommend! I would suggest to stick with the dessert soufflé rather than your main dish.

We brought our Cousin (a pastry Chef) for a special meal and enjoyed everything, in terms of food quality.
However, one service snafu was that for some reason our dessert order didn’t get translated to the kitchen, it was EXTREMELY late, and our otherwise good server neither let us know in a timely manner, nor offered any real apology or compensation. We’re still fans, but this was a misstep...

Love this place and the choices of soufflés off the menu are also amazing! I tried both the Mac and cheese with Bacon soufflé which was so good and the Reese’s pieces dessert soufflé was Awesome!! My regular menu items of the Cauliflower with Brie are always great and I love the Bananas Foster one too!

Amazing service, outstanding restaurant that can have both sweet and savory souffles and make them for a crowd that is such a talent. Location is good, parking is easy, waitstaff is amazing. Decor is a reminder of France without being over done. Good selection of wines available as well. I highly recommend one of the flights to test new options.

Went there for brunch. Know that unlike most other restaurants in this area and within Houston, there are not any brunch drink specials.
That’s the only note that merits this 4star rating.
The service was impeccable with a server who guided us through what to order. With this menu, the challenge is to try to order something that is not fantastic...good luck because everything is fantastic!
The other said this is a place where she and her girlfriends will come to peruse the many flavors of mimosas.

Love this place. Dined during Houston Restaurant week and introduced another couple to Rise. They loved it. The restaurant was very busy on the Saturday night which resulted in a small hiccup getting our dessert souffles out. The manager was very apologetic and let us know about the delay. My personal recommendations are the either one of the soups....they are fabulous, the Rise salad, the artichoke as an appetizer. Savory Souffles we have enjoyed the Sausage with Sundried tomato as well as the cauliflower with brie. For dessert I LOVE LOVE LOVE the apricot and chocolate souffles. Go with a part of 4 order different ones and taste/share.

Two of us ordered off off the restaurant week dinner menu. First courses of rise salad and marshmallow soup. Both outstanding. Their salad is hands down my favorite green salad. Perfectly dressed every time. Soup is always great as well. We had the corn/Serrano soufflé and the gruyère/jambon. Both excellent. One of our party opted for a special - crab soufflé. We all tasted it and it was fabulous. Dessert included bananas foster and chocolate soufflés. Fantastic food with excellent service as always One of our houston favorites
