Toulouse Café and Bar recalls a Fin de Siecle Parisian Café where you are likely to bump into friends and find yourself in conversations with neighboring tables. At first glance you will notice the bustling activity that characterizes Toulouse: wait staff with wine openers and hot plates of food, people chatting and laughing, the clink of wine glasses… the atmosphere is sophisticated and good moods are contagious.

In the tradition of all fine bistros, Toulouse has imaginative and seasonal menus that provide exactly what its patrons long for: cozy tables open to the street, mouth-watering specialties a la Française, delicious desserts made from scratch and an extensive wine list. Enjoy the tastes of France with our exciting yet comforting dishes such as our famous quiches, an expertly cooked trout almondine or the best mussels in the city.

Dine with us and be transported to Paris, if only for a moment.

    We enjoyed the energy level and food on Sunday. We started with a few oysters and the zucchini chips. My husband loved the onion soup and my Bibb lettuce salad was as good as ever. The salmon was overcooked but overall we had a great meal.

    Food was great and service was beyond. Our server stayed available but didn’t keep bothering us at the same time. She also made sure to briefly describe the dish to make sure we were okay with it and wasn’t allergic to any ingredients. Price was honestly a lot cheaper than I thought it would be and for what it’s worth. Was a little loud but was packed for Valentine’s Day and they had a live artist singing and another playing the guitar so that was enjoyable. 10/10 will be returning soon!

    The website stated Valentines menu would be from Friday February 9th- Wednesday the 15th but when I asked our waiter he looked at me as if I was confused. I understand this is a franchise but if your website is advertising a special menu each location should abide by that as to not mislead customers. Either way we ordered from the regular menu the appetizers were great but the entrees lacked flavor and depth. It was also very loud in-doors which is great for large groups but not so great for an intimate date night.

    The waitress was definitely not managing the tables at a pace that’s expected on a brunch weekend. Granted, they were short-handed and she was new, there should be a level of mindfulness of leaving a table idle for so long. I waited at least 30 minutes for my next drink to come out. This is ordering another drink halfway through my current one at the table. I understand days like these happen and this restaurant is popular on the weekend. However, that shouldn’t be taken advantage of just because there is a sense of security that people will always gravitate to Toulouse the most in River Oaks. People come to have a good time and relax here.

    The entire meal felt rushed. The food itself was awful, it was the worst meal we’ve had in Houston (and the only bad meal) in 18 months living here. The muscles were dry and flavorless and the steak was cold, as were the French fries. For what it was too, it was expensive. We should have known from the wine list, which was disappointing in how narrow it was. We won’t be going there again.

    This is the best restaurant I have ever eaten at in Houston. The service, in particular was outstanding. I have never been to a restaurant that was so well staffed. The decor and ambience were amazing and the noise level, although moderately high, was not enough to interfere with conversation at the table. The menu featured many excellent options, including many gluten free options. I highly recommend the brie appetizer and the salmon main course. The owner and the entire staff were exceptionally friendly. We will definitely return.

    Toulouse was absolutely divine and a fantastic culinary experience! We didn’t enjoy full entrées, but had a couple of appetizers along with some amazing wine. Highly recommend the zucchini chips and the crabcake, which is fresh, light and delicate! was able to enjoy outdoor seating for this evening, highly recommend going on Wednesday when it’s not as busy and you can enjoy the beautiful lights. I’ll def be back soon.

    It was cool I just didn’t like how they don’t provide staff menu tastings so the ability to suggest dishes or be hyped about menu items from them is meh. I sometimes will ask staff to pick my dish just to see if they can wow me. I’m not a picky eater so please no judgement. Menu tastings and family meals build a foh and boh connection, which in turn everyone benefits. Please consider implementing this one or two shifts a week. As for my lobster ravioli the pasta dough was a little tough which I provided feedback but it is what it is at this point. Mussels were mid, crème brûlée was delicious and the mandarin ice cream was a pleasant surprise.

    On my birthday, Toulouse gave us a free appetizer and a free birthday dessert including a lit candle. We ordered eggs Benedict on a muffin and also one on a crab cake from their amazing brunch selection. Both meals (includes best-ever roasted potatoes and more) were truly outstanding, and the server offered to take our photo. She was amazing, checking on us but not at all intrusive. This is my fav cafe at River Oaks District.

    In the River Oaks district; not far from the Post Oak Hotel. It was our last night in town and this was recommended by locals. Very good food and even better service. Next time I’ll come with more of an appetite to try the beef bourguignon.
