“A great place to eat in a very competitive market!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is a wonderful restaurant in a city that is full of wonderful places to eat. The food, service, and atmosphere are all great and I highly recommend it for that romantic celebration or an evening out with friends. The wine list is very good and the prices are reasonable.

“Looked For Somewhere Different in Houston; Surprised and Delighted!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Deciding to try somewhere new for dinner, I decided to search restaurants with outdoor seating, and Ouisie's was the first choice listed. By looking at the menu, and photos online, it looked to be a nice restaurant. Once I arrived, my impressions of "nice" turned in to "WOW!" My family and I decided to sit outside since it was such a nice evening, and our waitress Sonya set the stage for an outstanding dining experience. The staff is extremely attentive and gracious, upholding the meaning of Southern hospitality. I had the shrimp and cheese grits for my entree, and could not be happier. We were also treated to a complimentary dessert by the General Manager, Wafi, who I found out was close friends with the concierge I know at a boutique hotel in Houston; certainly appreciated! The experience as a whole was a little pricier than normal, but for the atmosphere, level of service, and quality of food, it was well worth every penny. We will DEFINITELY return!

“Good but not Great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

We've been going to Ouisie's for special occasions over the years. It had been a couple years since the last time we were there and it was not as good as it used to be, and maybe our last visit. They did not have the wine we asked for off the menu. The substitute we got was not nearly as good, and we had no idea how they selected the replacement. The food was only average. The amount of salt and spice in my redfish was a bit overwhelming. The chicken fried steak was good, I know that is one of their signature dishes. The waitstaff was competent but mechanical, it was a bit too noisy anyhow to have conversation, but at least an attempt should have been made. Finally, I thought the the total, for this experience, was way too much. Value is not there, there are many other places where you can get a warmer ambiance, better food, for better price.

“Refinement but mediocre food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Very nice place but do not go here for the cuisine. Is isn't. Nothing inventive or edgy or even contemporary. Tired old recipes, chicken was over-salted, crab cakes were breads. desserts were without creativity. You pay for the service, ambiance and decor, not the food. If you are a foodie, you will be disappointed, given the high prices...
