We had great service and delicious, fresh food. Love their menu selections. We sat at a table along the sidewalk which is our usual favorite place but it was misting rain that night and they did not enclose this area for some reason. Although we weren’t rained on, the moisture in the air made the tile floors extremely slick and the humidity was overwhelming.
In spite of that we loved our meal.

I frankly was disappointed by the service and have suggestions for menu: this was a business meal.
The waiter did not serve the correct wine to my guest, who is a clent, this is absolutly unacceptable. Please take according action and trainings as this was just embarrassing.
The ceviche was good but did not have enough lemon.
The fish, bass with truffles was very good and well cooked.

My husband and I enjoy Toulouse every time we go. When I turned 65 my family flew in from New York and we celebrated the occasion there. Had a wonderful time and the staff doesn’t push you a very fun experience. Very relaxing!

Always one of my go-to restaurants when I want a good meal and not too much fuss. They serve a very cold martini. Servers are friendly but not intrusive, not rushing you through the meal to turn the table. Love sitting on the patio. Every salad is delicious and I have to pair it with pomme frites for balance! No dinner is complete without the beignets - wonderful. Highly recommend!

Parking was a nightmare. The "valet" parking was across the street. We had to jay-walk in the middle of the block, through TRAFFIC, in the RAIN. Parker parked our car 10 feet from where we drove in. In other words, the valet added no value whatsoever. The food and service were OK, but the parking put a damper on the whole experience.

We arrived at 12:30 and the front of the restaurant was so noisy we couldn’t hear each other speaking. Waitstaff graciously moved us toward the back, which was noticeably quieter. Loved the salad Nicoise and I had a great Apremont wine with it. The new chocolate tart dessert was big enough and rich enough for a table of four to share; plus it was fabulous. They serve lattes here in the typical French fashion of a glass cup with a handle instead of a cup or a mug. I had forgotten this or would have asked them to warm the glass first as the late was lukewarm when it arrived.
My main recommendation: go towards 1pm if anyone in the party is hard of hearing.

Toulouse is hit and miss. I’ve had great meals and not so great. The atmosphere is always nice and it’s convenient; cozy and cool. Steak frites should be a no brainer, but at Toulouse you can’t count on either. My steak was just ok, cooked medium rare for medium and not really that special. The fries were skimpy and just ok. The Bernaise sauce was good. Service good, wine good, dessert (mousse) good not great.

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.
