Consistently plating dependable dishes is a challenge, Having eaten here many times, I applaud Chef Verpiand and his staff for the consistently excellent food time and time again. try the Mushroom Ravioli Appetizer and if you are lucky, The roast suckling pig will be on the menu as well, desserts are to die for. Enjoy.

A good restaurant, but I think that the food should be better. The service should be faster and the staff could be more kind.

Etoille should be on your favorites list. We were there Thursday night and it was full. But the wait staff handled the crowd nicely. As a matter of fact, there is very little turnover in the waitstaff. Management works hard to retain their great staff. We had the fix pres menu - they were benefitting Camp For All with proceeds...

This is truly one of Houston's best restaurants. There is nothing bad in the menu. I love their pate. Sitting outside or inside the ambience is the same. You feel like you're in Paris.

Chef Philippe continues to delight and surprise. On this most recent visit, We enjoyed a luscious mushroom ravioli, in a creamy sauce that was a meal in itself: Savory, delicate, with the flavor of mushroom dominating the subtle spices. The onion soup was divine, with clear broth and a disc of cheese floating on top, but not mixing with the... More

French restaurant serving consistently good food in a white table cloth setting. Two rooms one with a bar and the TV, silent mode, showing local sports and tables for dinners and a second in the back absent bar and TV. A nice place in which in both rooms you can carry on a conversation without raising your voice even in... More

This is an interesting place...It is a true French restaurant in Houston. Its menu is classic in nature, but execution is interesting. The bar is well stocked and drinks are prepared expertly. The appetizers were also "traditional" on the menu, but done with a Houston touch, big plates. The main plates (fish - sole and halibut) were well prepared and... More
