It definitely reminds me of a legit Parisian cafe between the open front design, the appearance, and the close seating. We kinda made our own tasting menu as a table and ordered a bunch of different starters and some main courses. We went the Saturday night before Mother’s Day and I was very pleased with the great service and we didn’t feel rushed, even though that happens for some holiday meals at other restaurants.

We enjoyed our meal and the service at Toulouse. We ordered the Duck ala Orange and after being served discovered it contained chunks of pork. It was not described as such on the menu. We brought it to our waiter's attention and he had the chef replace the dish with duck that excluded the pork. They kindly split our salad and entree in the kitchen for no charge. We had requested an outside patio table but none were available when we arrived so we sat at in indoor table which ended up being fine. We felt comfortably distanced from the other tables and with the restaurant doors and windows open there was a light breeze bringing in fresh air. Our California guests thoroughly enjoyed the evening and so did we. We will be happy to return to Toulouse.

It was our first restaurant meal back after the last 14 months. We dined outdoors on the patio for our anniversary and everything was spectacular as it was in the old days at Toulouse

By the time I got to the table, my wife was practically in tears. The Maitre d' had yelled at her about being their being short-staffed and he having COVID. They did indeed seem to be short-staffed because we only saw our waitress twice: when she took our order and brought the bill.

Amazing food, staff, and vibe. I recommend sitting on the patio during a nice evening and enjoy a bottle of Bordoux. Can highly recommend the steak tartare, Toulouse salad, and mussels!

Toulouse is a favorite of mine and did not disappoint last night. My scallops were perfectly prepared, and the saffron risotto had a delicious flavor and bite—the al dente that so many cannot achieve. It was really nice to see many of the staff I’ve known for years and to dine outside.

Had a celebratory luncheon for my tennis team and the staff went above and beyond!! Our server did all she could to ensure we had a great time!! The service and food are always amazing at Toulouse and the ambiance is so fun and charming. Dallas is so lucky to have such a gem!! Thank you, Mr. Lombardi, for creating such a marvelous concept!

Just not the same as it used to be. I’m a pet owner, but they had an over abundance of dogs, in my opinion. Also noise level was really bad. They had a drunk lady on a sidewalk table and she would talk and laugh at an ear splitting level. I had the Charcuterie board, as I have been doing for several years, but this time is was very minimal and not very good. Wife had a beef dish that was ordered medium well but was bloody, more like rare. Wife actually got sick on way home and I had to pull the car over. It was also my wife’s birthday. On open table they ask if the reservation was for a special event. We didn’t mention it at the restaurant and the waiter didn’t say or do anything, so I’m perplexed what’s even the point of having that input on the reservation.
In summary, it used to be our go to place for special events. Not anymore.

This place in hip Knox neighborhood has a classic french Bistro vibe and the food (and drinks) are better than they have to be. A really fun place for a post -Covid(?) breakout!

We started with muscles which were fantastic followed by the Toulouse salad and then a pistachio encrusted flounder which was a daily special and phenomenal. Highly recommend.

I’m very sad to say it was NOT GOOD in most categories unlike on previous visits. ☹️

The downhill slope started at the front:
The maitre d’ was snippy , the service poor - had to flag down a random waiter to please find our waitress, we had burnt tasting coffee with none of the promised cream for 10 minutes so the coffee was then cold too, the food overcooked - my petite entrecôte was tough and no way near medium rare ; the pomme frites, aka French fries, had a lot of dark brown shards, the salad was tiny -only 2 mouthfuls in size. Entrees were unceremoniously deposited in front of the wrong diner leaving my guests to shuffle plates.
Sad and embarrassing after bragging on this bistro to my out of town guests!
And all of this with a reservation, on a Thursday night and after braving the pouring rain to get there.
This place has let its success spoil it.

We've been going her for years because we love everything about it. The most recent visit was for our anniversary and they made it special by adding a sparkler to our dessert. The food here is always fantastic.

Another fabulous meal! Tonight we came to celebrate my husband's birthday and it did not disappoint. Sitting outside on a lovely Spring evening was an extra bonus. Abigail was a marvelous server. We started off with cocktails (Texas Refresher) and the Escargot Toulouse. Halibut was today's special and we were both glad we opted for that. For dessert, we had the Profiteroles. Excellent! We'd forgotten that they offer Half Price bottles of wine under $100 on Tuesdays, so that was a lovely birthday surprise! Love this place!!!

Amazing experience! We were 5-10 minutes early with our reservation but they still sat us immediately. Our table was on the patio. It was very pleasant and comfortable. The service was great! Our server made wonderful food and drink recommendations, which were delicious! Prices were reasonable and portions were pretty large.
