This is my neighborhood brunch place. Outstanding service for many years. Something happened early 2016 that they made horrible changes to the menu. Went again for brunch late in 2017 to find out that the menu deficiencies were fixed. Cafe Toulouse has again the b st steak tartare in Dallas. Thank you for listening to your costumer, R

A wonderful Christmas day dinner. Service was quick, especially notable as restaurant was packed to capacity. The food was well prepared and presented superbly. The New York flair is that the tables was very close together, just like a restaurant in NYC.

I am surprised more folks haven't reviewed this lovely little jewel amidst the hustle and bustle of Knox-Henderson and the Katy Trail. It's is a place to relax. Quiet, exquisite service, delicious food. We visited with friends for at least an hour before even looking at the menu. They were gracious. The lobster salad was the right size. Not too... More

Enjoyed a very nice meal ... a real change of pace for Dallas, but for if you are looking for outstanding French cuisine, Toulouse may not fulfill your highest expectations. While the service was very friendly and attentive, the decor was just mediocre. Also a little noisy.

Very family friendly European bistro style restaurant serving mainly French oriented fare with top quality and properly priced food and wines. Everyone is so helpful and attentive wanting us to even tip the busboys which of course we did. The maitre d is especially accommodative and on occasion the owner pops in for a little chat.

Just had a horrible experience at Toulouse. I sent back my omelet that wasn't prepared correctly and I was incredulous when it was prepared wrong the second time. The beignats are any thing but New Orleans style. They are dough balls covered in powdered sugar. Want a skim cappuccino? Forget it, they don't offer one. The service is rude and... More

Intimate lunch or dinner spot. Sit on the patio and watch the joggers on Katy Trail at the intersection of chic Highland Park and pedestrian-filled Knox St. Come in yoga pants with your pooch after a walk on the Katy Trail or straight from the office. Excellent crispy-skinned chicken, amazing fries (frites!), and great Cobb Salads and service.

Well, I stopped here on a whim with my wife and kids. Not necessarily dressed for this restaurant but ok we stopped anyway as I wanted to celebrate with a nicer restaurant. Not exactly family friendly more like a couples restaurant and that is mainly what I saw in there. Definitely pretentious wait staff so got the true French effect... More

I've always had superb service at this charming French bistro. Tonight we wanted to try some different things & didn't want a full order of the highly touted mac & cheese. We asked if we could have an appetizer portion. Our waiter said he'd make it happen. It was quite delish, but lacked the touch of blue cheese from a... More
