Named affectionately after executive chef Drake Leonards’ South Louisiana hometown, Eunice offers a modern Cajun-Creole brasserie-style menu inspired by the flavors of his childhood.

The seasonally-inspired menus marry European influences with the ingredients and foodways of the Gulf Coast. Enjoy the dining experience inside at the bar, at a table along the floor to ceiling windows, or outside on our patio.

We offer happy hour every day from 3 pm to 6 pm including 75 cent oysters, half off snacks, beer, specialty cocktails, and house wines by the glass.

    We had the hearth roasted oyster, shrimp and grits and shrimp étouffée. The oysters were quite good. The shrimp and grits were excellent, though more like étouffée on very good grits. But the non-traditional étouffée itself was disappointing. The battered shrimp on green noodles simply didn't work as well. The stew was decent, but skimpy. We'll give Eunice another try, but skip the étouffée.

    Everything about Eunice hit just the right note on every level. The servers were attentive and solicitous without being obsequious, the food was outstanding (we had almost all the appetizers, and wow!), the lighting was dim enough to be intimate but bright enough to read the menus, the music playlist gives a great vibe, and even though the space was loud, we could hear everyone at our round table of five. It’s got a great bar, which was starting to pick back up for late-night dining when we left at 9:00. Perfect for dates, or groups of four to eight. There’s a super cool room for private dining as well.

    We absolutely love Eunice! We make it a point to dine here every time we come to Houston. We are from SWLA and now live in NOLA and love how he perfectly incorporates Cajun cooking with unique flair! Last night, we celebrated me kicking cancer’s butt and our server made it extra special! Thanks so much!

    They didn’t have the wine on the menu requested. After choosing another wine it took 45 minutes before it was brought to our table. The duck poppers were not up to par. Not only were they smaller than usual the bacon wasn’t thoroughly cooked. The waitress kept pushing us to order our entrees. The restaurant was not fully booked. What used to be a favorite restaurant has reduced itself into the category of being just another restaurant in Houston.

    Great ambience for business lunches as it doesn't get very loud even when fairly full, but the tables were a bit close together and you can clearly hear the conversation at the next table. The quail was excellent but the brussel sprouts and broccolini were a bit over seasoned. Loved the liver!

    First time at Eunice. We like the environment and the food was good however the service sort of spoiled the experience. Everything was rushed as though they needed our table which was not the case as there were always open tables. Within 30 minutes of arriving we had ordered, finished a starter and had the entree in front of us while my cocktail was only half finished!!! I purposely slowed the process by ordering coffee and saying I’d then decide on dessert or not. The pace might have been appreciated for a lunch but not for a Saturday evening out!

    We went for our anniversary and arrangements were made seamlessly. We went for our 11th anniversary and we’re greeted with champagne which was great and actually reminded us our wedding day. We had the Hearth oysters, duck poppers and we split a gumbo! Everything was absolutely delish! The service and atmosphere were wonderful. We will definitely be back.

    We are regulars at Eunice. The food is always exceptional. This visit, we sat outside on a lovely evening, and Eunice’s patio is one of the best. Our server forgot about us outside, but the manager made it right by comping us one of our favorite sides (the Brussels sprouts). All in all, a wonderful dinner. We’ll be back.

    I've dined at Eunice numerous times over the years, but it has been a bit since our last time by and this most recent visit. What really stood out to me were how the prices seemed to have skyrocketed. The Étouffée was nearly $40?! A dozen Gulf Oysters were $30. etc. I get that the economy is in a rough state, food costs have skyrocketed, and restaurants have to pass on the cost to customers, but ouch. Wonderful service, wonderful ambiance, and I'll happily be back to support local business, but make sure to bring your checkbook.

    The service was amazing and the food was very good. Some of it was a little over priced and the shrimp and grits was so salty that I couldn’t eat it. The beets and chicory were not what I expected. I thought the menu said they were roasted (which I love) but we were served pickled (which I don’t hate). I didn’t mention it because it could have been my mistake. A surprise highlight was the chicken liver mousse. I generally dislike chicken liver but we actually ended up getting two orders. The drinks were tasty (maybe a little light on the alcohol…since I had like 5 drinks and didn’t have a buzz when I’m usually done after 2). Overall, I would definitely recommend.

    Love the airy interior. Great appetizers (especially Dan Dan shrimp and mushroom risotto). Server was fantastic. Great oyster specials at happy hour. Gulf fish tastes good, but I’d prefer an actual gulf fish from nearby Galveston. Mahi Mahi isn’t a “Gulf Fish.” Crispy pork was dry and wouldn’t recommend. Cheesecake with blood orange sorbet was best thing we ordered.
