“Good quiet restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

The menu offering is fairly wide and the salads are very fresh and original. The location and parking is good. The service is excellent and the dining room is very quiet, which makes it an ideal location if you want to have a quiet business conversation over lunch.

The prices are a bit on the high side, but the quality is always good.

“nice atmosphere, attentive service, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

i hadn't been to Philippe since the eponymous restaurant lost its founding chef, Philippe Schmit. went for lunch today, and found it quite good, certainly did not detect any drop off in quality. I had a vegetable chicken soup, which was well executed, and the chicken paillard sandwich, fine. it is a nice space, and the service was attentive, excellent overall.

“Chilly outside and FREEZING in here!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Visiting Houston during a rare child spell. Met some friends here for drinks.. sitting in the sectional couches area and it is cold. Wondering if they had theAC on .. they said the patio was still open so they were keeping the door open to the outside!! No one was out there.. even if there was someone out there.. tell me why the door needs to be open?? Ruined the experience.

“Good lunch poor dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

I have been here for lunch a number of times and it has alway been good quality and value. So u decided to go last night for dinner and was really disappointed. Service was good however the food was average. I had the lamb rack very tasty but over cooked and small meal. My girlfriend had the steak which was cooked to perfection however the potatoes were still raw and very crunchy.

Overall I will go back for lunch but skip this place for dinner in the future .

“Truly Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Philippe Restaurant + Lounge was truly an amazing, memorable experience. I wanted to take my girlfriend out for a wonderful, romantic place and Philippe exceeded all expectations. My girlfriend has the Lamb rack + navarin and I enjoyed the Long Island Duo of Duck. Both dishes were imaginative, well portioned, and cooked to perfection. The ambiance was sublime. Our water, Sarah, was quick, friendly, courteous, and attentive. She made the whole meal flow. Food was severed promptly, but you never felt rushed. I highly, very highly, recommend Philippe Restaurant + Lounge,
