Fuad's is an excellent place to go to have a 1st class dining experience. I've been going there for years and the food and service is always second to none. No menu and a personalized service with the chef gives you an unique experience foreign to Houston. If you are trying to impress a potential client or that special someone, then Fuad's is the place for you. It seems that many of the complaints I have read on this site seem to come from people who have not been to a multi-course Continental restaurant (I could be wrong). Let me offer some advice so that your Fuad's experience is not an awkward one. First off, order an appetizer, soup or a salad and don't be afraid to ask questions. The staff knows there is no menu and will have multiple suggestions. I suggest the Stuffed Mushrooms and Quail which is incredible. As for soups, try the Bisque (made with real crab meat). If you are looking for something a little cheaper than try the Onion soup or tabooli (They also have classic dishes: Shrimp Cocktail, Escargot, etc.). They have a Caesar Salad that they make at your table that is excellent. Next you order your entree; the chef is your guide, but you have to tell him what you are in the mood for. A good way to do this is to tell him the main ingredient you want: Beef, Chicken, Fish, Pasta, Steak, Lamb, etc. From there, he will throw out some suggestions, and I suggest to keep asking until you hear something you like. If you still have room, get a flaming dessert, you'll thank me later. One last thing: I've heard a lot of people complain about not knowing the price, which is a valid concern. However, if you have to ask the price, then you probably don't belong at Fuad's. Sorry if that offends anyone but Fuad's is an establishment and is like no other. Yes, the inside is dark, and a bit 'dingy', but its got loads of character and the staff does their best to make you feel like a king. Don't be scared off by the non-believers.
