Best

Go to Rabelais, have the hostess take down your cell number and she'll call when your table is ready so you are free to browse the Village. When that blessed moment comes, get re...

I venture to Spec's for my wine and to see the prices on this establishments wine list is theft at at best. The cuisine is edible but nothing memorable. The service is sloppy and ...

Will Never Go Back 1/13/2011

We used to love this place, but after our meal and treatment on 12/31/10, we will never return. Bad service, bad food, bad management. The new year's prix fixe menu was overpriced and each course was more disappointing than the one before it. Crab bisque with no crab, cold chateaubriand with inedible and congealed bearnaise, a "chesse plate" consisting of three little lumps of cheese all stuck together with a handful of mixed greens thrown on top of them, and for dessert, a puff pastry filled with creme that was so hard it could not be cut with a steak knife. When we told the manager Tatiana about our disappointment with the meal and service (on three separate occasions during the meal), she seemed to not care, continually saying that "this is the best menu of the year" and "each dish was executed fine." When we told her we probably would never return, she said "too bad" and never attempted to rectify the situation or apologize (aside from the offer of a glass of champagne, which would have been free anyway with our new year's meal!). We weren't looking for a comped meal, only some acknowledgment and understanding of our displeasure. My advice: never go to this restaurant. It used to be one of the best bistros in Houston, but now is a total disappointment. more

Editorial

  • In Short
    Who wouldn't be captivated by this rustic French cafe sporting gothic candleholders and friendly, French-speaking servers? Order from the chalkboard menu: Escargots, boeuf au poivre (sirloin with pepper cream sauce), merguez & frites (lamb sausage sandwich/fries) or blue cheese quiche when available. For lunch, try the exquisite salade de chevre with goat cheese-eggplant croutons, apples and hazelnuts. Finish your lingering repast with dessert crepes.
