    Sat outside in beautiful weather. Food was ridiculously good, service exceptional and food came out fast. Two sets of kids sitting near us and outside you have cars that park very close and people come out to smoke. Despite all that we had an an amazing experience.

    Charming space reminiscent of the south of France, and wonderful offerings for both lunch and dinner. Not to miss is the pot pie, and also recommend the mussels. Very nice wine selections to complement your meal.

    Always a delight at Bistro 555. The mushroom pate was soft and flavorful. The presentation was lovely with the marinated peppers and pickles and radishes. The chicken pot pie was so good. The mix of chicken and vegetables in the creamy tarragon sauce was excellent.

    We always enjoy getting back to our old neighborhood and dining at what is now Bistro 555. So close in look and food to being in France. We shared a very good salad and had the Lobster Pot Pie and Snapper. The Snapper was superb and the Lobster, very good, but slightly less appealing in our eyes. Wines are priced very fairly at about twice retail. Good service. Look forward to getting back!

    It was my first experience there and was very satisfied with the overall experience. It is a very cozy place, but was very nice. Everyone was very eager to help with anything, but not hovering so you feel rushed. I hope when we go back to get a table by the window or eat outside if the weather permits. The food was excellent and very large portions. We will definitely be back.

    "We love the comfy feel of this place – the dining room is somewhat smaller but quaint. We will definitely return to try more dishes. The dishes we ordered were amazing and fresh. The table was split on the fixed restaurant week menu and some amazing main menu dishes. My wife felt the wine selection was superb and the desserts all sounded delicious, so it was difficult to decide. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

    Nice place for a romantic dinner. The weekends are busy with reservations - make sure you ask your server how much time you have before the next reservation for your table. We were not informed at the beginning and we told (while still drinking our wine post meal) that the next guests were waiting outside to be seated next at our table. We were there from 5p to 6:30p. While that did spoil our experience, unfortunately, we will still return for the good food and overall good service. And will make sure beforehand how much time we have to eat.

    Great classic French food. Went there for the fois gras and was not at all disappointed. The fig/Gorgonzola pizza was not the best dish as the tomato sauce overwhelmed the other flavors but every other dish we had at the table was wonderful. It was a great wine list and they had a French beer. It is a very small place so reservations are a must.

    Went for Houston Restaurant Weeks but I go on the semi-regular. My unhelpfully helpful advice is that everything is delicious, so order whatever appeals and make plans to come back for the rest of the menu.
