Toulouse - Houston
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 drank aprol spritz at the bar as we waited for our table. We ate terrine de foie gras, ahi tuna tower, beef bourguignon, crispy duck leg confit and finished with grand marnier souffle. Husband gives a 5 out of 5 for each dish. I give a 4 1/2 overall for the food. We both agreed the crispy duck leg confit and grand marnier souffle were our favorite. Service was excellent even with the very busy dinner service.
This is one of favorite restaurants! The food is great, as is the atmosphere. The outdoor dining area is so nice, as the staff are very welcoming and warm.
The food is OK, but the ambiance is horrid; It's extremely loud. There is no carpet but rather a tile floor that reflects sound. They also play loud music.
The wine list does not indicate vintages, i.e., the year the wine was produced. I have never seen this before in a restaurant. You have no way of knowing whether this Bordeaux or that Burgundy is from a good, bad or mediocre year.
Took my 96 year old Mom to Sunday lunch and she is VERY particular about food and service. At the end of the meal, she commented that she wanted to come back because the food was excellent.
The duck leg was unacceptable, it had a bad smell and taste old Impossible to cut through. It was a big disappointment!
Great service, and a really lively crowd. Perfect for a Saturday night. Terrific manager!
Way too loud and the food was mediocre but priced as if this is a much better restaurant. Service was distracted - focused more on surroundings than actual service. Too many better options in town for good French food to return.
Great place, and fantastic French wines half price on Monday’s and Tuesday’s!
Great food, crappy gg
this restaurant came recommended by a friend and I wasn't disappointed . food was delicious ,service was great . host stand were very professional and friendly . managers actually came by our table and asked if all was good . food is important but so is service . we also dined at their other restaurant in Dallas Bistro 31 and was also excellent all the way around .
Service was short of expectations. Seemed to be overwhelmed.
They forgot us after they seated us but once I mentioned it to one of the staff we had a wonderful waitress and all was great after that they even gave us a complimentary dessert. I frequent this place and I enjoy it a lot. I usually get great service!!
Great as usual!
I have gone there several times. The manager has been very helpful. We have had several functions there.
Love the food and the staff! Amazing restaurant.
Feels like a chic brasserie in Paris!
We were seated outside even though it was in the 40's and their outdoor heaters did not work. There were empty tables inside but we were told they were not available. The service was non-existent and we were treated horribly. Part of the problem - we were there for an early new years eve dinner (6 o'clock reservations) and they were having a big bash that was starting at 8. If they didn't want early diners before their event then they shouldn't have been taking reservations. We were very disappointed especially since we had other dining options.
It was great
Had a party of 8
Everything was fluid
Food was delicious
I really loved Toulouse, the food was delicious, it's decorated beautifully/a classic upscale French Bistro. It is located in a shopping center but felt like a great neighborhood gem.
Always enjoy our dining experience at Toulouse and look forward to returning.
The service and food were very good. I would recommend the calamari. The Shrimp Louie salad was good. They were nice to my daughter about gluten free and her celiac disease.
Christmas Dinner was Wonderful!
My friend and I were there for Christmas, late lunch, sat outside, beautiful day. Excellent waiter. We split several dishes and a bottle of prosecco. Everything was absolutely perfect, but we were disappointed that the soufflés were not available.
We took our entire family of 15 and had a wonderful evening.
Fabulous food with something for everyone. Great service, ambience. Fun setting and you can hear people at your table talking. Great appetizers to share.
it can get very loud for Friday or Saturday dinner. but the service and food are good.
great place. The only recommendation would be to lower their wine prices . Other restaurants that only mark them up $15 to $25. make up the difference with higher volume clients coming in which feeds on itself if advertised.
Toulouse was the perfect place to have a holiday lunch with my daughter. The food and service were impeccable. The ambiance feels like a slice of Paris. I will definitely go again.
Went to this place for a girls night out and just love it!! It was crowded and it's not quiet at all but food was so delicious, I just loved it
I brought my mom for an after birthday lunch and it was quite a treat for both of us. Excellent experience...thank you!
Enjoyed our lunch at Toulouse as always. Stylish French bistro style and a menu to match. We always enjoy our visits to Toulouse.
We love everyone there and the food is great
We were there to celebrate our daughter's 16th birthday. Nicole went out of her way to make sure they had a great experience! She encouraged the girls to try some different appetizers, and they did. They all raised their forks with escargot and tried it at the same time. They liked it, especially the sauce! She had some festive mock cocktails make up for the girls, too. She also handled our 2 top away from the girls very well. She brought a great dessert for the girls and even a special one for us. As a former waitress inc college 30 years ago, I know what a tough job it is. She is excellent all the way around!! Don't let her go! I couldn't have asked for a better night for my daughter! Thank you, especially Nicole! :)
The ambiance at Christmas was outstanding! The guy with the large poinsettia hat sitting at the table next to us was a hit with us and other customers, by the way! You should hire him. ;)
All in all, I was very pleased. As a working, single mom with little time, I was very happy and relieved with how things turned out. I'm glad I made a reservation and that you guys were able to accommodate a last minute request for our 2 tables to be split up.
I was telling my sister-in-law about how wonderful it was, as I had only been for lunch a couple of years ago. She had heard at a holiday party this weekend about the wonderful Sunday Brunch you all have. The people that play music for you all were hired for the party and she loves them, so we will be at a Sunday Brunch soon!
Thanks again for a great experience-
Great atmosphere..food is always fantastic!!
I rate with consideration to true French preparation, presentation, and extreme attention to the quality, texture, and taste of the food.
The bed of risotto and crab with saffron was prepared by cooking the crab in the risotto - resulting in vastly over-cooked crab that lacked both crab essence and saffron flavor.
The Halibut was also not given the French attention to serve tender, moist, and flavorful flair seafood deserves.
The restaurant does indeed have the look and atmosphere of a true Parisian venue!
Thank you. As always food was great and service was excellent. Thank you Pedro for your warm Welcome
I went for brunch, and I was very impressed with both service and food. One of the best restaurants I have been to in a while.
