Toulouse Café and Bar recalls a Fin de Siecle Parisian Café where you are likely to bump into friends and find yourself in conversations with neighboring tables. At first glance you will notice the bustling activity that characterizes Toulouse: wait staff with wine openers and hot plates of food, people chatting and laughing, the clink of wine glasses… the atmosphere is sophisticated and good moods are contagious.

In the tradition of all fine bistros, Toulouse has imaginative and seasonal menus that provide exactly what its patrons long for: cozy tables open to the street, mouth-watering specialties a la Française, delicious desserts made from scratch and an extensive wine list. Enjoy the tastes of France with our exciting yet comforting dishes such as our famous quiches, an expertly cooked trout almondine or the best mussels in the city.

Dine with us and be transported to Paris, if only for a moment.

    Food was delicious. We had oysters, (a couple were very small) deviled eggs. Duo of crab cake and lobster with asparagus (lemon butter sauce was heavenly). My daughter had steak and frites. She enjoyed even though it was slightly overcooked. Overall - good day.

    Checked in at the hostess stand and the restaurant reeked of fish odor so we opted to eat outside where flies were plentiful. Our service staff was very attentive. The live music was wonderful. And the food was good but not amazing. I don’t believe that I would return. Sorry

    Not sure why with a reservation we were given a table right next to the entrance in the covered patio. It was extremely hot and uncomfortable. I was with few guests so I didn't want to complain. That area is considered patio and should be communicated if that is the only table you have available. Our server was very nice.

    The acoustics inside Toulouse are very loud so not great for a business lunch, more people who are having casual get together’s and birthday lunches. Also, the placement of a large air-conditioning unit next to our table was not ideal. Not the coolest place in the hot Texas weather.

    My friend and I ordered two different dishes. Mine was really nice but hers was disappointing. Our waiter was prompt about letting her order something different and we were both ultimately happy with our meals and did not have to wait too long to get something different. We appreciated the excellent service.

    Outstanding service at later lunch. The special halibut was delicious as were the steak frites and escargot. Very good beet salad if a tad overdressed. I appreciate their wine-by-the-glass selections, especially whites. We weren’t rushed by our waitstaff and enjoyed a leisurely meal.

    Very noisy. Can't hear person next to you at all. Lobster bisque is nothing special. They ran out of their daily special of halibut at 1:00pm on a Sunday. Lobster roll was cold. Kids didn't like the chicken tenders. My eggs benedict was ok. The oyster rockefeller was not good. Bland. No flavor at all. Omelette was decent. Very expensive for meh food.
