I had reservations.... still had to wait 25 mins. Then we were seated outside literally next to the curb. It was cold and not enjoyable at all.
Service was average
One of the best dining experiences I have ever had. The food, service and ambience is great.
The food was extremely good.
That being said, the woman who was suppose to show us our table completely ignored me for over 15 minutes. I mean truly went out of her way to avoid my “hello”, “is this where we check in” and “i’m sorry to keep asking”. It was mortifying. The food was really good, the restaurant was extremely loud and it was hard to hear each other.
Wish we could make reservations for patio tables. In a pandemic, their policy seems short-sighted. We are not comfortable eating inside and would have left had a table not been available outside.
Reservation was for 8:15. Did not get seated until 9. What is the point of a reservation if
Where to begin? We made a 7:45 reservation and arrived at 7:40 and was told to wait at the bar. We were having fun having a drink and watching football and finally at 8:30 someone came over and asked us if we were another party. We then went over and asked about our seating and it was like they had no idea who we were. They finally seated us without apology or acknowledgement of the fact that we waited for almost an hour. Then, in short, our waitress was just terrible. Very nice but had no clue about the menu, the wine, anything. She never checked on us or brought our wine and we had to chase down a busboy when my dinner arrived lukewarm. The food was only so-so (escargot with bitter oil instead of butter, cold food, unseasoned steak) but the service and the wait time are things that are easily controlled so was the most disappointing part.
My main issue was that we had a 7:30 reservation and didn't get seated until almost 8:30. We also were seated outside right next to the street and our table was up against a telephone pole. I know everyone is doing the best they can right now, but those two things were a strike against it when you pay for a nice dinner.
Food was great. However, we weren’t seated until 30 minutes after the reservation. We asked the hostess a few times about it, and she told us we were next, then she would go out and get another couple to be seated rather than us. The manager gave us dessert for free, which was delicious. I recommend the restaurant if you are willing to be flexible and patient, but if you’re in a rush, this isn’t the best place
Our server was very hospitable and enhanced the experience.
Always a sure thing in terms of food and wonderful wait staff!
Great survive and food but we we seated in the back corner near the kitchen. I was dark and hard to see menus and our food. We had friends in from out of town and were disappointed in seating and lack of ambiance.
Toulouse always makes me feel like I'm in a small French bistro in Paris. Love it!
This is my go-to place when I want to sit outside, enjoy a champagne cocktail, and eat some great food. I went out of my usual comfort zone and ordered the calamari and roasted chicken. Where have you been all my life? The calamari also had roasted veggie and some jalapeno heat to it. The chicken melted in my mouth. I was disappointed I didn't room from the creme pote, but I will be back. Oh yes, I will be back.
It was our anniversary and since the weather has been so beautiful I want to sit outside on the patio and enjoy the day. We had a great table, good lunch and the service was great!
Great!!! Loved the food! Very quick service. And the staff is so kind.
Been here before and love the food and service!
The outdoor patio is large and makes this a perfect option for safe Covid dining. My partner has the bouillabaisse which was out of this world fresh seafood and wonderful rich tasting broth and I had the Steak Fries which was cooked perfectly and the French fries were sumptuous. Service was perfect on this cool evening.
We have loved Toulouse for many years, and during the pandemic, it's a great place for patio dining. We had forgotten about OU-Texas weekend when we booked a lunch table on the patio, and the place was PACKED and noisy. The construction noise is bad enough, but we felt dangerously close to other people when we were seated along the pathway where everybody -- servers and patrons -- comes from indoors to the patio.
That said, food was good - not as great as some other times, but very good, and we love the restaurant. We will be back!
Always great food and service. A few too many people on the patio for my comfort though.
Always great food and never feel rushed! Definitely will return.
In the one year I've been in Dallas, I visited T several times including their Plano location. Quality has been inconsistent, and at times disappointing. Some menu items maybe found in a "French" menu but are prepared à la américaine, some lack French flavors, herbs and sauces (sorry my "French critique" :)). The owner is actually Italian but may have lived in Belgium (and owns the next door La Taverna). The staff are friendly and carry conversation with you.
On a Sunday night, they may have run out of my item, and should have said so, instead they served me a poorly prepared plate (almost thoughtlessly). I complained to the waitress, she communicated it to manager, but I was ignored by the Maitre until after I ordered a second wine, and the waitress tried her best. In any event, I enjoy the music when I go there as it takes me back to Paris, so I go for the ambiance and not the food.
I hope they improve their kitchen prep and certainly give thought into each plate/entré to justify their price. Mostly, I hope they treat a single diner equally to other tables full of people.
Food was excellent
Great place with French vib. Excellent service. Recommended.
It’s our go to place!
Reliable and about as French feeling as you can find in the Big D.
Wonderful service, outstanding food & drinks, and exceptional staff.
All around amazing. Phenomenal service, fantastically well made food, and great ambiance. We sat on the patio, and they opened the retractable roof halfway through our dinner... game-changer. We shared lobster bisque, tuna tower, escargot, calamari, duck, scallops, filet, and a handful of desserts. Everything was excellent, we were very impressed.
Beautiful day, felt safe, food was delicious and waitress went above to help us.
We enjoyed our Friday night dinner out with the family. Everything about the restaurant was outstanding. The dinner was delicious not an overwhelming amount of food. I can’t wait to frequent this location.
Had reservation, but had to wait 30 min. Service frantic, restaurant very loud, food over cooked. Maybe they were short staffed? In the past always a wonderful experience, definitely off on Saturday night.
Toulouse always has excellent service and food. Love the outdoor patio. A great place for a relaxing and fun lunch.
Birthday dinner - food and service were great!
The foregoing ratings express my opinion quite accurately.
Great! Always have a great experience at all of the Lombardis restaurants!
This is one of our very favorite restaurants. The service is impeccable and the food is wonderful. There is a nice variety of entrees and it is hard to decide which to have. I had the quiche and French onion soup and my husband had the halibut. We will be back soon!
Service was impeccable -food very good - salads were excellent and steaks cooked perfectly -quiche of the day was every moist. Sitting outside made you feel you were in Paris and not Dallas
Loved the salad of the day; however, I was seated under speaker on the patio and couldn't hear to converse with my luncheon guest.
Wonderful dinner and evening.
One of the best meals in Dallas. I’d recommend the mussels, the duck, and the filet.
