Always enjoy this very comfortable and deliciously authentic French bistro. Do not miss the oysters Toulouse! The service is always impeccable and one feels compelled to linger over drinks, wine and food for hours. So refreshing to enjoy a cafe that relies on food and service over gimmicks and schtick.

Overall this was a great spot. The ambiance was charming and our server Joe did a lovely table service. The French onion soup was the best I’ve had (better than Rise) and the salad was simple but fresh and flavorful. The baguette and French butter are as close to Parisian authentic as Dallas can get.

I highly recommend the tagliolini pasta with goat cheese and lardon (thick bacon pieces). The flavor was amazing. The Spare Rib Bourguignon was okay. The flavors are nice and the dish is hearty, but the flavor is soft. It does not embody a Bourguignon richness that you might expect.

Great overall ...We will def go back and try more of the menu.

Parking is sparse. Vallet is 5 (plus gratuity) across the street.

Kicked off the first day of 2021 with an incredible meal of mussels, classic Eggs Benedict, lobster frittata, and Grand Marnier soufflé for dessert. The service was just as remarkable, and the selection of champagne and wine large and at price points to fit any budget. Our wine steward was very knowledgeable and helpful, too. Can’t wait to book another reservation!

We had brunch on New Year’s Day. Service was fantastic (think server’s name was Lisa). Only complaint is my duck confit was a tad overcooked. Everyone loved their dishes.

Always a fabulous time for brunch. I had the croque madame and others ordered salad and quiche. The quiche is divine and croque madame is perfectly French. Love the champagne by the bottle selection and friendly service. Toulouse is one of our favorites!

Wow. We have wanted to eat here for years, finally did it. It was so good we wanted to come back the next day but sadly, no available reservations. Bummer! This is one of the best restaurants in Dallas, and some of the best French food outside of Europe! We had: white wine, escargot, tuna tartare, beef medallions, pasta (OMG the pasta!), short ribs (melt in your mouth), creme brulee and souffle for dessert. Spot on service. What a great lunch!

We were able to book a reservation last-minute for Christmas morning; we were visiting Dallas for the holidays. They have a great variety of food on their brunch and lunch menus - it was so hard to decide what to get! I got the lobster bisque and escargot, my husband got the French onion soup and quiche of the day. Everything was piping hot and so delicious and, more importantly, the service was amazing, especially on a holiday. Thank you for giving us a wonderful Christmas morning!

Restaurants that encase their patios in plastic miss the point of outdoor dining in times of COVID. Fresh air circulating reduces transmission. They have basically just added rooms.

Also, a family of four was seated next to us. The two young girls began causing a commotion by playing a hand slap game ... WITH THEIR PARENTS. I don't pay $170 for two to sit next to others acting like they are at Chuck E. Cheese.

They were oblivious to other diners.

That's when we left.

I usually don't write reviews but this place we went to for our anniversary was great. Some people stared at us because we are African Americans. But you can overlook all of that when the the service and staff make you feel at home and they did. GREAT JOB! and the food was delicious.

We reserved a table and told them it was for our anniversary. They tried to place us at a table right at the check in station that was cramped and a bad location. They accommodated a request to change. Service after that was outstanding.

The quality of the food was not great. The butter garlic sauce on escargot was not good at all (not worth dipping bread into, which is saying something). My duck was overcooked and dry but the potatoes dauphinoise were amazing. Trout almandine was just OK.

The souffles were fantastic. The raspberry was surprisingly good and our favorite.

We don't plan on returning.

Arrived early evening and was seated immediately. Always, ALWAYS remember to order the onion soup. Simply the best. Also highly suggest the Mac & Cheese. Rich with four different cheeses. And, again, in the always category, the Grand Marnier soufflle. All terrific.

Had a memorable evening out on the sidewalk for my husband's 62nd birthday. We were lucky that it was a temperate clear night for December. Being outdoors near the light wrapped trees and horse-drawn carriages was festive. We thoroughly enjoyed all the food, drinks, and the service was terrific.
