Food and service was great, wish the entree menu had more choices. Never had to pay for bread before though. A bit loud in the main dining room, but overall had a great time and good food.

This was our first visit to Rouxpour at Memorial City. We were celebrating mom's 93 birthday on Feburary 29, 2020! It was a special occasion and the staff went out of their way to make it an enjoyable event for us all. The food selections were great! The service was excellent! We recommend Rouxpour to anyone who has discriminating tastes for NOLA style cuisine.

Our party of four was seated promptly in an attractive room. We all enjoyed sharing the fried green tomato appetizer. My seafood and sausage gumbo was delicious and so was the Rouxpour salad. All the food was attractively presented and my dining companions enjoyed their food, as well. Our server was a very sweet girl and did her best but the service was extremely uneven, which colored the entire evening. We waited 15 minutes for our cocktails to arrive (my gin & tonic arrived without a lime and the bar did not stock Aperol, which was surprising). I don't think that was her fault because a request for a second round took even longer. All in all, it seemed as though the restaurant was understaffed or perhaps there was a lack of training and oversight by the manager. As I said, all the staff were quite enthusiastic and personable, so perhaps it was just an off night. There are quite a few Cajun style restaurants competing for our dining dollars in Houston so, at this price point, service really does matter.

I really can't say how the food was because the restaurant cancelled our reservations without notifying us. We showed up a few minutes before our scheduled reservation and we were told they weren't supposed to make reservations for that night and it was a mistake but we could wait for a table if we wanted and they estimated a wait of 3 hours so we left. They did not seem to care at all and we even called and verified our reservation with the restaurant a week prior.

We were impressed with the wonderful Mardi Gras boiled crawfish and the extraordinary attention and energy of our usual server Johnathan - BUT it seemed more like we'd crashed a corporate function than a Mardi Gras party. The only action appeared to be people hugging people they were connected with.
The band didn't start til 6 tho 'the party' started at 3 - nothing going on at ALL and we couldn't get food until 5. SO...what was the 3 pm start ? Just sayin...we love Rouxpour but this was not the finest moment. I'd suggest a bit more diversity on the menu. Just seems rather mainline and some people love the vibe but not always South LA.

There was a waiter in training but we were only touched twice during the entire dining experience. Once to order and the our food delivered to the table. If any else was needed we had to ask for the waiter or the trainer.

On the other hand the food was delicious.

Took my mom here for her birthday on Saturday I was a little late so I didn’t quite get our servers name I just remember he was from Memphis Tennessee and he was amazing! The food was delightful, the service was outstanding and the ambiance was wonderful! I loved the fact that they had brunch and dinner menus available to choose from. We got a couple of appetizers (Pistolette & Charbroiled oysters) both were delicious. I also had a cosmopolitan which was good and not watered down!! Apparently they have happy hour from 10-4 on the weekends which is awesome! We all ended up getting the Zydeco chicken loved every bit of it! Highly recommend this lovely restaurant will be back!

We actually arrived at the restaurant late due to saturday concert running late. Got to restaurant an hour before closing but was told only drinks were available and that although they close at midnight they actually stop serving food at 11pm. So after 11pm, no gumbo, bread, or even a pretzel stick. This info is not posted on their website so beware.

We made the reservation a week in advance - so I was a little disappointed when they just added a chair to a four top by the bar. It was 6:15 pm, so well before any major dinner rush. Mason, our server was amazing! Really great service & very personable. The oysters were delicious- my family said they were the best they’ve ever had (I’ll have to take their word for it). We’ll most definitely go back.

We were so excited to try this new restaurant after several friends recommended it! Unfortunately, we were seated and were not acknowledged for over 15 minutes. Apparently no one was assigned to our table, so a kind waiter eventually did take care of us. But, the service was mediocre. Water glasses not filled, long wait for food. Manager stopped by and apologized for the wait. Unfortunately, it was too little too late. The poor service honestly ruined the evening for us. We will not return.

Everything was amazing except the waitstaff not being attentive. We were seated and no one came to the table for about 15 min or more until we stopped a server waiting on another table. No one knew who our waiter was supposed to be. The manager stepped in and did apologize. Overall, we’ll definitely dine again

Second visit. Quickly seated. Our waiter was amazing and very attentive. We both ordered the boiled shrimp appetizer for our entrée. Yes.... the shrimp are certainly big enough for a dinner ! Only complaint....same as last time..... Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc is suppose to be very chilled. Not room temp ! No one likes to put ice in their wine !
