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.

Service and food was exceptional. The outside patio was great. I took one star off for ambiance because was there was a man smoking a cigar outside at another table as we were finishing up and that was unpleasant. Luckily we were about to leave.

Rendezvous with a former work colleague for lunch - Oysters, Shrimp Salad and Steak Tartare all perfectly presented and tasty. Service pleasant and unobtrusive.

Perfect spot for a girls brunch. I recommend sitting outside so you can enjoy the live music. We had excellent service, as our waitress was very attentive. The food was yummy. I had the lobster salad, very fresh. My friend got the duck confit which I tried and it was cooked perfectly and seasoned well. Love this place. It’s a vibe! Oh and they offer good discounts on wine. Rose was half off on Saturday. Yes please!

Everything was fine, but we made a poor choice in ordering the pate. We should have sent it back, but just didn’t want to cause any trouble. Our filet and boeuf Bourgogne were delicious and the service was very very good

We love coming to brunch here. Walking up and seeing the atmosphere, makes anyone get happy. It’s decorated inside or the covered patio or the outside courtyard. It’s so beautiful. Next, the service is friendly and attentive. The food is delicious as always.

Must come for brunch or lunch. It’s the place to be

It's hard to find a bad meal in Houston but if you would like to experience one, Toulouse would be a good place to start. High priced, so-so food with abysmal service - the trifecta of a bad restaurant. The manager asks "How is everything" without breaking his stride, breezing past the table and his stony gaze upon exiting was not accompanied by even a "Goodbye" let alone a "Thank you." Choose wisely. Choose elsewhere.

We have been to this restaurant a number of times before, but this was the best ever. The menu has great variety and the Christmas specials were spectacular. The wine was a bit on the pricier side, but the overall bill was very reasonable.

The ambiance is great. Whether you sit inside or the outside covered area or the open courtyard. Each table has a small vase of flowers and it all makes you feel like you are in bistro and not just a restaurant.
The service is always attentive and watching to make sure everyone receives the best of it.
The food is delicious. The Escargot to the crab cakes or the huge shrimp cocktail. I always get a bottle of Rose since it’s 50% off during brunch.
We have been here many times for brunch and lunch. Will be going back again soon.
It’s also nice to dress up a bit for brunch. Highly recommended and make reservations
