Good- In nice neighborhood, free street parking, outdoor covered patio, food is good, interior is nicely decorated to look like a typical French cafe Average- Nice staff but- we sat in back and the table in far back next to us was for wait staff on break or folding napkins or whatever and they were talking to each other loudly...

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

Had a birthday outing for my daughter for her thirtieth birthday at her request. Nice relaxed atmosphere and great food. Our party of five enjoyed the angus beef burger and the macaroni with bacon selection. Both were very tasty, as were the fries, which they called something else since it was a French restaurant. Look forward to going there again... More

Was looking for a great french restaurant with the perfect atmosphere. Didnt want a stuffy formal place. Found it! Food was wonderful including my favorite escargot and had great service in an enjoyable atmosphere. It was a win win win

My wife and I visited this bistro after reading reviews in TripAdvisor; it exceeded expectations! The overall ambiance of the restaurant is very French, so much so that you think you are in Paris; the space is not too large and you can see most patrons come and go. The menu is varied with enough choices to satisfy everyone; I... More

We went here for brunch on a Sunday. It's been on my bookmark list for quite some time but I thought it was located somewhere else that is a hassle to park but I was wrong. Parking is easy and so my fears were for naught. We sat on the patio and overlooked Knox before it got too hot. Not... More

We had dinner at the Toulouse Cafe for birthday celebrations! The service was superb; the waiter was attentive and fun! The entrees were excellent. I recommend the scallops and the filet. Please try the desserts- a wonderful way to complete the evening. I highly recommend this French cafe for a special evening!

Now I know Dallas is known for their BBQ, but there is just so much BBQ one can eat (and I do eat a lot.) So for my daughter's birthday we figured we'd try a French place. It was like being back at the bistros in Paris. My daughter started with the escargot. Everyone dipped their bread in her dish... More

My husband and I love Toulouse! We are not fans of heavy french food, but we love every dish we've tried at Toulouse. It is always busy but is worth a wait. I would suggest reservations. Patio seating is nice if the weather permits. (It is covered but could be hot in summer.) It sits right by the Katy trail... More

The atmosphere is great! Have had girlfriend lunches here quite often. Took my mother for a belated Mothers Day celebration. The soups & salads are awesome but you have to order the petite Gougere's for an appetizer. Melt in your mouth
