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.

    Wish there were more vegan/vegetarian options. Waiter seemed somewhat condescending when we asked about the menu. Was disappointed since I had been here a few years back and had a much better experience.

    The service was excellent as usual, quick and discreet. The sea bass was excellent and perfectly cooked, the octopus had a slight smell of « burnt »/overcooked and the scallops were good but not extremely tasty. The creme brûlée was absolutely delicious. The noise level is a bit too high, getting better after 9pm.

    One of the best dining experiences we have ever had in Houston! The food was unbelievably delicious! We had the onion soup, the Carbonara and the Petite Filet. My husband thought it was the best onion soup he had ever tasted. Every bite was best level great! The service was kind and attentive.

    We had a reservation at 630p, party of 2. Hostess checked us in and proceeded to take us outside for dinner on a 40 degree evening. My wife expressed that she did not want to sit outside. Hostess says, "well, I can sit you inside, but I need the table by 815p." We said that we didn't know if we would be finished with the table by 815p. Hostess explained that they like to honor and respect all reservations. Understood, however, honor and respect our reservation at 630p. Efrain, our waiter was AMAZING! We spoke to the hostess whom was the manager of the hostess stand. She apologized for her comment. Management stated that they will make note on our reservation. We just felt discounted at a restaurant that I frequent for business and with my wife.

    The food was ok. I had the giant scallops with risotto. Quite tasty. The deviled eggs were unusual but delicious. My complaint and what ruined my dining experience was the flies. There were small flies swarming all around my food. They need some method to separate the indoors from outdoors. I don’t choose to dine outside because of the possibility of insects. Certainly, I did not expect this inside while trying to enjoy my $60 scallops.

    Great restuarant - the structure and decor very French/Belgian city square look, double sidewalk venues. Just the decor made my date night partner feel very special. The food was very excellent, but I am a big fan of beef bourgueginon, but have usually had it served with potatoes, not noodles, and no bacon bits, but the sauce was fantastic, and very French! Next time I would order the noodles on the side.

    Hostess placed us (2 persons) in far corner table… neighbor tables had multiple large parties…. Waiter that should have been assigned to us was not made aware that he had our table until we spoke up about not getting waters nor bread delivered to table or anyone acknowledging us at all…. While watching every table around us getting their water and bread…. And orders taken for drinks… we asked the waiter if he knew who was to take care of our table. He admitted he should have been the one ad apologized profusely. We got up and went to bar to eat instead…. The service at bar was marginal at best. Food was better than average… coffee cup showed signs of a very very messy coffee pour as dried coffee drippings were on the entire cup. I would consider dining here again… but definitely consider requesting more attentive staff.

    Food on the decline compared to the old Menu when Toulous first opened. Been a regular ever since the first day they opened in Houston, Menu was richer less expensive and bigger. Also Business lunch menu was encouraging to do all my business lunches there , not anymore , they kept pasta and burgers(maybe) now. We do not need Toulous to become another Steak 48 . We hope it goes back to the good original French upscale bistro that we knew and miss. Atmosphere is good though
