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

    Seating inside is too cramped. Maybe be willing to take fewer reservations and walkins. And people that DO have reservations, don’t seat them in the isle to be constantly bumped into by waitstaff.

    A”Bouzy is one of my all time favorite restaurants in the city. The food is consistently good. We usually go for Sunday brunch, which is always crowded, but they do honor our Open Table reservation. For brunch, I recommend their quiche of the day. One time it was potato and leek; another time it was smoked salmon. Both were delicious. This time, we went at noon on a Wednesday, and it was much quieter. I ordered the wedge salad with fried oysters, and my husband got the burger. Both were excellent. Regarding ambiance, it’s casual, and they have a huge patio. We usually sit outside, weather permitting, but this time we ate inside. It’s fun to ogle the cases of champagne that are stacked seemingly everywhere. Finally, it’s difficult to find a restaurant in Houston that doesn’t mark up their wines three or four times over retail, but A’Bouzy is the exception. We had a 2019 Goldeneye pinot noir for $63, only about twice retail. As real wine aficionados we are impressed with the extensive wine list and the moderate pricing. All in all, we’ll keep going back!

    Greeting was positive and friendly. Server was disingenuous and took so little interest in us that he gave us the lunch menu and walked away without talking to us about the food on the menu. The restaurant was about a quarter full and very cold so kept my coat on. Marco, the manager, noticed and took action, closing the front door and putting some heating on, which was appreciated. The food was excellent, starters: avocado toast blue crab and the green salad with blue cheese & pecans and mains: stuffed salmon and fish pot pie were tasty the cocktails moreish. Our food was served promptly but again, no follow up by server. We wanted a bottle of wine but we were ignored by the server so it didn't get ordered. Marco checked us out and took a picture of us which was great. Valet parking was problem free. Starter, main and cocktails, $200 for 3 people I consider good value. Overall experience was good and I would dine here again. This place could be great and not just good, with more attention to detail.

    In all honesty they should not have left us book a reservation at 8:45 PM, when we sat down they told us we needed to order immediately because the kitchen was closing. Had we known we were going to be rushed to order food and drinks we would have just gone somewhere else. Last reservation should have been at 8 to allow a table to converse and order as they feel necessary. Honestly won’t be returning, this experience left a bad taste in my mouth.

    Food was exceptional. Popcorn shrimp was great and the seafood pot pie was outstanding with portions big enough to share. Wine list is 40 pages with some great pricing that reflects modest mark ups. Service was excellent. A true 5-Star experience!

    We had an amazing food experience and our waiter was helpful, made great suggestions, and was attentive. However, we were disappointed with the hostess. When we came in he did not greet us he looked at us and said do you have reservations? He also didn't ask if we were celebrating something special. I was the one that told him we were celebrating our 10th anniversary and he didn't say congratulations or anything like that. It appeared as if he was bothered to have to take us to a table or provide service. It was disappointing to be treated that way but it was a special day for us and we did not allow that to overshadow our celebration. Other than that our waiter and the amazing food made it a good experience.

    Let me start by saying that the food was awesome! There was not one dish we tried that we didn’t really enjoy. However, the noise level, even outside, was ridiculous. We were snapped at by a server who almost gave our food to another table, and wouldn’t trust that it was ours (even though that table said they had not ordered it.) Finally, the parking situation is a total disaster. They have Valet parking “for tips,” but our ticket sat at the the desk for way too long with no help, then what would have been 10 steps to get our own car, he insisted he had to get it and literally backed it up and expected a tip. Try it… but do yourself a favor: don’t go in expecting things to be organized, and park your own car across the street!

    I have eaten here many times and have had great experiences. Sunday was disappointing, service was slow and when they ran out of the bottle we wanted, it took them about 35/40 min to tell us, chose what to substitute with, which we were told was an "upgrade" but it was not and for them to figure out what to do. We were in such a rush to get out of there as the experience was ruined after this.

    Very cold on the patio. Gusts of wind and rain was very chilly. The server did not tell us it was last call so we only had the time to order 1 bottle of wine for 5 guests and we would’ve loved to have had time for a second bottle - we had plenty of time left. Dessert wasn’t even ordered until 15 min later. Overall great though!

    We celebrated my daughter's 57 years Birthday, she had her car valet parked $20 was offered to car wash her 🚗 for $40, which she paid, but what I am really unhappy 😟 😨about is, as she was being directed to her car by an associate, she slipped in a Large Pot Hole in the Valet Parking area. The restaurant was very busy on 11/6/22, I made reservations and my family had to wait at least 40 minutes before being seated. I would we spend almost $1,000.00 for 10 people, which isn't the problem, but the owners should have the hole fixed before someone else gets help 🤔 also if you don't have liability insurance coverage for this, you need it, other restaurants have it and it is offered to customers at time of the incident.

    We have eaten at a’Bouzy on a number of occasions and enjoyed the outing, but last night was a great dining experience. My family all gathered for my wife’s birthday. The food, service and wine were perfect. Our waiter was available but allowed us to feel like we were important. Just a great night.

    Been on my list for a while. The ambiance is nice but the food is just ok. The french toast was too runny for my liking. The cornbeef hash was ok but a bit salty. I was expecting actual cornbeef but was more of beef pieces. I went for brunch and they could add a few items as the selection is limited.
