With its impressive location overlooking Houston’s most prestigious boulevards, Château provides guests an ambiance of unpretentious luxury. The timeless décor and gracious service make for a dining experience as memorable as it is delicious. The menu is an effortless melding of French culinary simplicity artfully plated. Consciously infused touch points, most associated with classically trained service, pamper diners. Château brings to life the lost art of tableside service with menu items such as Wild Mushroom “Heritage” Chicken, Parmesan Crusted Rack of Lamb and a 42 oz. Tomahawk Ribeye for two. The Simply Grilled items take center stage and the market-driven menu celebrates the freshness of the seasons. A well-priced wine list, as well as a Reserve Wine list, has more than 600 references.

This place truly is not what it used to be. It seems like it's under new management. Our waitress was Susan, who I've never had. Now you have to specifically ask for tap water when you order water. Otherwise you'll be given bottled water for $8/ bottle. The normal portion sizes are much smaller. The 42 oz steak was dry with cognac flavor that was off putting. I was also offered a birthday dessert, as I/ friends always are when we celebrate birthdays here. The difference this time is we were surprised charged $20 for it. This is the first time this has happened to me here, so I was shocked. The overall experience was not worth it- La Table lost a patron.

all in all,it was a nice brunch with personable service, however I did not appreciate their "slight of hand" upcharge on 2 cocktails. although a cocktail came with brunch, a couple of coffees were later ordered. when the bill arrived,I asked why I was being charged approx. $18.00 for 2 cocktails & was told they 1st consider the coffee a free drink & then the much higher price for the cocktail is charged. this negative ending to an other wise pleasant outing will keep me from returning again.

Fantastic experience, there was a recent menu change so a lot of the dishes were new and unfamiliar to both our table of four and the staff serving us.

We tried the cheese souffle, seafood platter and a couple others for starters. Everything was good, portion sizes looked small but were very filling.

The duck entree was absolutely amazing and large in comparison to other duck dishes at competing restaurants, and it was also perfectly prepared. The lamb was also a major treat, cooked to the chefs choice, and our dining companions couldn't be happier.

The manager came by and checked on us twice. Between the appetizer and entree there was about 15 minutes where we were waiting for our food and we weren't checked on, or updated on when to expect it, but aside from that the entire meal was excellent.

The ambiance was good, save for it was a little loud on our Saturday evening visit for our 7:45 reservation. By 9 it quieted down in the chateau, and we could finally talk comfortably across the large table over our desserts.

Our entire party was impressed. We will return.

The ambiance was amazing!!! The food was ok but the service was horrible. The waiter was rude & unhelpful. I asked if I could substitute a side item for a low carb option .. response “I don’t know, look at the other items on the menu. I ordered wasabi spinach & steak. The meal came with two sauces, the spinach did not have a wasabi favor I ask the waiter if one of the sauces was for the spinach .. response “clearly they are both steak sauces.” The steak was cooked to the right temperature but did not taste good (the worse steak I had in Texas).

The rose tea was really good & I loved the sand timer but I wasn’t offered a bread selection (bunch menu)(waiter just gave me to different kinds)

The manager was helpful in addressing my concerns regarding the waiter but I would not go back or recommend La Table. Peli Peli, Yauatcha, and Masraff’s are much better options in the area than La Table.

We happened to go on the night they premiered their new menu. We were so disappointed. The pork chop was over cooked and dry. The Halibut was bland and boring. The leeks were stringy and difficult to chew. We used to like the classic French style of cooking, with very flavorful sauces, meats seasoned with lots of herbs and garlic etc. We will not return with this new menu.

We were duly impressed with the elegant atmosphere, superb service and exceptional food quality. We also realize it's challenging to find all these elements in one restaurant. Yet, Chateau/La Table succeeds on all fronts. We are willing to pay top dollar when a restaurant really delivers.

I hate to say it but The Chateau at La Table was just OK. We were hoping to have a great meal and when we found out we couldn't order what we wanted (roasted chicken for 2) it went down hill from there. The service was good but the food was average at best. I had the Halibut special which was OK but Masraff's is so much better! My Mom had the lobster and bad. Come out cold and the spices weren't to her liking. Not sure I can give it another try. If you are going, you need to make sure your order the chicken at the time of the reservation.

Service and food both left a lot to be desired. We waited for 10 minutes after beingseated before provided with drink menu. Wine recommendations were on point but aside from that, the experience was a disappointment. Our server said that dishes could not be made gluten free because they were “pre-made.” The shrimp cocktail was tough and had brown slime on it. I ordered the Branzino which comes with asparagus, marble potatoes, and frisée salad - I subbed seasonal vegetables for the asparagus and the other two sides didn’t come out, so I had to essentially beg for the potatoes, no salad to be seen. Ambience was probably the best part - would not go back.

Easily the best food in Houston.

My wife and I are obsesssd with good food and if you are looking for a truly ala carte meal then look no further!

For entree we had the Tomahawk for two, which they flambé in brandy at the table- and wow the taste was spectacular.

The best part though was the starter I ordered, very simple roasted eggplant ravioli with a tomato broth and foam reduction. AMAZING, so delicious!

Staff are unbelievably attentive and it’s the only Michelin stared service I can think of in Houston.

Met some friends for what we hoped to be a special evening, but the extremely slow service, lukewarm food (I had the mignon poivre. Medium rare. Received it rare and lukewarm. Nobody checked it was done right) was nothing to brag about. It's a beautiful restaurant, so you would expect service to only support it.

I've noticed a gentleman walking around asking each table about how their evening was going. Except ours. Hmm. Profiling? Maybe they cater to only a certain audience (you follow?). That's fine. You just won't see me or my friends again.

My spouse and I went there for our 39th wedding anniversary. The wine list is extensive, with some of the wine being reasonably affordable. The sommelier did recommend the bottle we ordered and it was less expensive than another we were considering, but went very nicely with my spouse's tasting menu and the kale salad and lobster I ordered. Speaking of the lobster, it was fabulous and prepared with different accompaniments than I would normally think to pair it with; the sliced peppers on top of the lobster were reasonably spicy, more like a mild to medium jalapeno. My spouse enjoyed her tasting menu, particularly the branzino fish. We topped off the dinner with the chocolate souffle for two, which was fabulous. My spouse omitted the dessert she was to receive on the tasting menu in favor of the chocolate souffle. The wait staff was attentive, without being too cloying, and all wished us a happy anniversary. There was even a card on the table wishing us a happy anniversary. The time between courses was perfect; so often I feel rushed through a nice dinner, but La Table - Chateau spaced the courses so that our meal was leisurely, with plenty of time between courses to digest the prior course and engage in conversation. All in all, a most pleasurable evening!

La Table always delivers delicious food with impeccable service. The food is prepared with absolute care and attention. The staff are incredibly attentive and provided for our every need. The caramelized cheese souffle was creamy and delicious, the filet au poivre was perfectly cooked and melted in my mouth. Dessert was a tough choice - chocolate soufflé, crème brûlée or chocolate caramel choux. We'll have to go back to try the choux, but don't regret the choices we made. We'll be back again for another meal soon.

La Table - Château is an elegant, very quiet space which, to me, makes it enjoyable. The food is delicious. Our service yesterday was incredibly slow; our coffees arrived after our dessert was eaten, after we had to flag down our waiter to check on them which was a little difficult by itself. Also had to flag down the waiter to request our check, weren't sure if this was part of the process for lunch, but it seemed unusual and inconvenient given the scarcity of our server. Finally, given that it's a fundraiser, I believe the server should have offered us Restaurant Weeks menus at the beginning rather than upon our request.
