    We ate Thanksgiving dinner there. Soup too sweet, Turkey and dressing good. The pecan pie was very mediocre.

    The food was great as always, prices are reasonable. Service friendly and competent. One of the best feats at Bistro Le Cep is that guests know how to behave and don't shout all over the place. Even if it is fully occupied it is easy to keep a conversation going because the noise level is so pleasantly low. We have been going there since the very beginning and before that to the Rotisserie of Beef and Birds which had the same owner who is now retired. But his successor keeps it going very nicely.

    Restaurant was super quiet this time. We had our usual appetizer, my bread was bit dry, but escargot was nice. I ordered the pork chop and the sauce and the red cabbage was delicious. Wine was very nice, they have many French options. I like to order French wine in a French restaurant and the server knew exactly what to bring me. Key lime pie was very nice.

    We were seated promptly by courteous staff, immediately brought drink menus and menus as well as water glasses filled, as soon as our other guests arrives we ordered drinks and courtesy basket of bread and pate was brought to us as we decided on our appetizer and dinner selections. Everything arrived on the table from the kitchen with appropriate timing, plates cleared at the right time and next course brought in. Food was delicious, guests at our table ordered the salad, escargot, the Rabbit, the Wild Boar, the pork chops and everything was extremely good. We had after dinner cappuccinos, Irish coffees, fruit sorbet and those were also delicious. All in all a very enjoyable evening with great service and food.

    My wife and I dined at Bistro Le Cep to celebrate her birthday. Everything was wonderful - from the greeting at the door, to the delicious food, to the attentive staff, to the lovely wine and complimentary desert for her. A very pleasant evening! And my wife was impressed with the confetti on the table to create a celebratory atmosphere!

    Server seemed a little rush or had too many tables to take the time to introduce himself or explain the nightly specials. Server didn’t ask if we wanted anything else before bringing the check to turn his table quickly.

    The food was not good.The food had no flavor, the lemon butter sauce had no taste, the capers where terrible quality. The breaded chicken tasted like it was from a frozen dinner. The parmesan cheese had no flavor, cheap quality. They just gave you two small slices of bread.The deserts where lousy too.

    As usual the food was superb. We went for my birthday and I had my favorite meats, lamb, quail, and duck on one entre. And my favorite appetizer escargots was wonderful. Chocolate mousse was sinful.

    I have never had sea bass served with a dollop of mashed potatoes and cooked carrots. It seems as though for restaurant week they decided to fill in the gaps with whatever was available in the kitchen. Disappointed and will not return.

    Such a hidden gem! We went to Bistro Le Cep during Houston Restaurant Week and tried their HRW menu, loved everything about it! Food was delicious! Started out with Escargot, followed by Trio, highly recommend their lamb, melts in your mouth! Ended with Crème Brûlée… yum! Service was superb! Definitely coming back…

    49th anniversary! BLC is the perfect place to be, and has been for years. I especially enjoyed introducing BLC to some cousins who had not been there before. And we hit restaurant week, and the special offerings include many favorites from the regular menu, so we could do good and eat well. What's not to love?
