Dining with a friend. Food was delicious. I had the short ribs. Very tasty but could have been warmer. Some pieces were room temperature to slightly warm. Nice wine selection. Service was attentive. Would have appreciated offering to split the bill instead of just leaving one bill. Main dining room was noisy. Lots of wood and high ceilings carry the noise. Outside, even with no AC, would probably have been a better choice, although lots of tables packed into to the small front patio.

I wanted a special place to host a dear friend from Houston and her precious dog, JJ. I made a reservation on the covered patio that is dog friendly and we had a wonderful time with good food, magnificent service, lovely weather - what more could we want. We topped it all off with the amazing souffles - I had Grand Marnier and my friend had Dark Chocolate. We took our leftovers home and they were greatly appreciated later in the day when we were hungry again.

Love Love Love Toulouse! Never disappoint! Food was excellent and absolutely perfect. I had Trout Almondine and my husband, James had Steak Frites. We split Escargot and OMG it was delish. I think they have the best in Dallas. Lastly, a Grand Mariner Soufflé to top it off! Perfect belated anniversary dinner. Thank you Serge!! Fabulous Dinner!

Have been here several times. My 93yr old father likes the mussels. I always go for the salad. Had the calamari this time and was a little overdone. Service was slow to start. Must have been something good on the tv. I would certainly go again. Good wine.

I moved to Dallas in the spring of 2017. I am french and admittedly I need my french fix from time to time. Toulouse is the place in Dallas. The food is traditional and consistently very good. The chef outdid himself with the new "charcuterie plateau" -- quite frankly the best I found in Dallas. The staff is friendly and it truly feels like french neighbourhood bistro. I love the mussels with fries and mayo, and Pernod on the side for lunch. The duck (texas size LOL) is also great. Have the chocolate souflé for dessert - a must!

After just coming back from Paris I was hopeful to find a restaurant that reminded me of the wonderful food there. I had the short ribs and they just didn’t taste anything like I expected. It was not very good. I also had a soufflé in Paris that was made at the restaurant Philippe Excoffier and was hoping that the soufflé here would be good as well. It was not. It tasted like scrambled eggs. For the money we spent I was just so disappointed and will not be back. Not French at all.

Very nice place, and a great area to walk around.

Valet was nice, complementary besides tip, and the overall mood and meals of the restaurant are reminiscent of a quant European lunch spot.

Also they had a great cappuccino, and if you get one with the dark chocolate mousse it is divine! Loved it.

This was not our first time at Toulouse. The food is fine and the wine list good. We enjoy the cafe feel of the restaurant. The issue we had was we were served very quickly--too quickly, and the point was to enjoy a leisurely meal. Otherwise, we like Toulouse!
