Ate from the traditional menu - escargot, onion soup, duck a l'orange and crepe suzette with a nice bourdeaux. Very nice, good service, and overall a very enjoyable evening. Try it, you'll like it.

Chef Phillipe is consistent if nothing, The mushroom ravioli is to die for, save your bread to mop up every bit of the broth, I had the bison rib eye and my wife had scallops both excellent. This is the best french cuisine in Houston, Phillipe has earned his master chef status, one dish at a time..........

I should try different dishes but always ended up with the mushroom ravioli which is out of the world. We sat and chatted for 3 hours like the whole place was ours. We each otdered a cappuccino and shared the apple tart ala mode. Heavenly.

Chef Philippe creates masterpieces in the kitchen. His dishes are first and foremost flavorful, richly flavorful, yet also beautifully presented. His grilled salmon and steak au poivre should not be missed, nor should the amazing apple tart. On a lark, I recently ordered the merguez sandwich for lunch. It was terrific; as good or better than any I've had in... More

very attentive service and professional. order beef tartare and escargot as apps, seasoning is on the lighter side compare to others in town but still very delicious. seafood risotto and steak entrée were cooked perfectly. however, the highlight is the dessert, must try the Pudding aux Poires. wines are moderately priced for this part of town.

The food was so bad that I would NEVER return to this restaurant. The fish was so heavily salted that it was inedible. The waiter was so busy that it took 20 minutes to be able to order cocktails.

The green fairy is delicious and nutritious. Along with some wonderful inexpensive hors d'oeuvre for social hour and I'm a happy camper!
