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.

Terrible waiter. Took forever, messed up a couple orders, and double charged our credit cards.

Waiter got the drinks wrong. We ordered escargot to share as a starter. They brought the escargot and just put it in front of me. One fork, no side plates.

Manager happened by and said how is everything? I said not so good so far. He patted me on the shoulder and said let me know if you need anything as he turned and walked away.

Toulouse continues to surpass our expectations. The manager is always there greeting people and making the customer feel welcome. Always happy to see us back. The hostess always has our table ready!

Food was great! Service was great...
Until our waitperson had too many tables.... a helper came over...
We ordered a second bottle of Veuve ... the girl that opened spilled ALOT ... she even made a comment that she spilled ‘a lot’
Then when she came to refill our glasses, she spilled out of our glasses onto the table. I made a comment that maybe she should bring an extra glass, she said maybe she should... nothing Not a glass, not a discount... nothing.
I would have expected better customer service out of a near 500$ brunch for 3, or maybe train her how to open/ pour a bottle

Toulouse is always a great choice, however, the last time I went, the noise level was through the roof. It was much louder than normal. We ordered a lovely bottle of wine that was the deal of the century, and the chef even sent over a lovely dessert for "Galentine's Day"!!! I will definitely frequent the restaurant again, and again.

They had live music outside today which was a nice touch. The weather was great. During the day, I definitely recommend sitting in the shade on the patio! Great atmosphere. And top notch staff every time.

Patio is perfect for Sunday brunch! Live music is on point! Service is great! Just make sure when you make reservations you specify you want a patio table if you want to sit outside.

Great spot for date night. We loved the ambiance, service and the food. The service was slow and I assume it could be attributed to how busy the restaurant was. I also had a reservation for inside seating, which I did not get when we arrived.

We had a great time. Sat on the porch and watched the people go by. Food and wine was delicious, people watching was fun. Very festive and we did not feel at all hurried.

Having dined at Toulouse several times before, this cold Saturday evening hit all the marks. Nice cocktails, excellent oyster appetizer, super French bread loaves, great menu options and wine accompaniments, capped off by strawberry dessert and wonderful friendly service.
