Restauranteur Shawn Virene put the POP into Houston with his wildly successful a’Bouzy. This champagne-fueled spot located in the tony River Oaks neighborhood of town attracts a stylish crowd all day. The bar is always bustling and the patio echoes with the cry – “a Bouzy!” every time a bottle is sabered tableside. In fact, most tables will have multiple wine buckets close by, keeping the bubbly cool. The fresh, ripe American menu features seasonal seafood, salads, small-shareable plates, large raw bar and prime meats. The wine list curated by Virene, is both the best-priced on bubbly and wines in the city. The interiors have a sophisticated rustic vibe with exposed brick, reclaimed woods and a color palate of creams and blues. The effervescent appeal of bubbles is reflected in a light installation that mimics bubbles floating overhead. The spacious patio is a magnet for the stylish clientele that enjoy the year-round garden. The best thing is Champagne and wine is at or below retail

    Upon arriving for our reservation we were informed we would either have to wait 30 minutes for a table inside or sit on the patio. Knowing the heat on a Sunday, we were reluctant to accept their patio offer. However, the hostess assured our group that it would be comfortable enough and they had fans for the table. This was not the case. At least 4 different times we asked to get seated inside because the heat outside was intolerable. The management did nothing to make this experience any better after complaining several times. Even after waiting an hour to move tables, there was nothing done to get us out of the heat. This made the overall experience truly unbearable. Love the food but the management and overall host experience was abysmal. And the reluctance to have more than 2 fans on a full patio is ultimately inconsiderate of guests.

    a'Bouzy had wonderful food and the prices were fair, parking was a bit of a hassle if you didn't go for the valet service, overall a good experience.

    I went to brunch with my girlfriend for the first time and I am glad it was this place! Great food, great drinks and the price was not too bad. Cheaper than I originally expected! If you’re looking for a chill place to get tipsy with your friends and enjoy some quality food this is the place to go

    I regret setting up A’Bouzy, especially for my partner’s birthday. The customer service was horrible and frustrating. I would have given the experience ONE star had it not been for the food, which was good. We were told they only had space for us outside, which was not ideal but we agreed to. When they sat us out there, there was only one other table sat out there. We pretty soon realized it was really hot and although there were a couple of floor fans to cool the area, we were told they could not move them to make it any breezier where we were, even though the other table had one of them sitting directly behind them, and there was only one other table out there then. Later on, when the outside started filling up with guests, I realized it was only our table that did not have a ceiling fan or a floor fan. Why wouldn’t they have offered to move us to another outside table when they were all open earlier so we could at least have a ceiling fan? There were a bunch of umbrellas above us, which we were also told they could not close. Later on, someone else who worked there went behind on side of our table to put some of the umbrellas down, so clearly they felt they were able to do it. Was someone else’s complaint actually taken seriously, they refused to do it when we asked. Our server was clearly only willing to do the bare minimum. For example, when one of our guests brought an additional guest, he said “you can go grab a chair.” Really? Why wouldn’t he offer to grab the chair? It would have taken him two seconds. Last time I checked, that’s part of his job. Every time we asked about a fan or an umbrella, he didn’t even try to think of a solution. It was just, “we can’t do anything.” I have worked as a server before and his customer service was unacceptable. We also spoke with one other staff there, who similarly, was not helpful. What should have been an enjoyable birthday memory instead became a frustating evening.

    Food was good. We especially liked the pea tendril salad. And the bag of popcorn to start was nice. Service started rather slow and we felt forgotten!

    I ordered the trout. It was absolutely outstanding! I went in determined to eat just half of it (trying to lose weight), but I couldn’t stop, it was so delicious! It was cooked and seasoned perfectly. My friend ordered the chicken, and she said hers was outstanding also.

    Table was ready for us when we arrived. The weather was terrible with strong winds and rain. Valets did a great job in-spite of the rain. The waiter, Miguel, was attentive and did an excellent job even though we were visiting with friends we hadn’t seen in a while. We had lots of catching up to do. The food was cooked perfectly and the presentation was excellent. We had appetizers, entree and dessert. A great time and reasonable prices. We will go back soon

    Went for Sunday brunch, reservations are a must. Complimentary valet for parking. The coffee is excellent, French press. The deviled eggs are delicious. The seafood pot pie is excellent. The brisket hash is not recommended, and the crab cake Benedict could have been seasoned better. The Service was great. I will definitely go back.
