Three of decided to dine upstairs after a wine tasting event in their pretty bar. All the appetizers looked so good we decided to order several to share as out meal. We were so glad we ordered the "Tortellini’s of Lobster" -- the flavor was awesome. The "Steamed Mussels" were fresh with a wonderful broth that had a hint of tomato. Excellent! All of our food was excellent (we tried about 5 or 6 items) except the highly touted, served in a jar -- "Crab + Avocado" (with lime, cilantro, olive oil emulsion) as it had an odd taste.

Our waitress was excellent. Great attitude. Helpful and didn't flinch when we mentioned the Crab + Avocado was not right. They took it away and deleted it off the ticket. This is a classy establishment with a fun bar downstairs and great dining up.

We called the restaurant about 930 to check if it was open. The lady told us very friendly that we could arrive until 1030.
We arrived at 10.10, the waiter was in a VERY bad mood, he threw us the plates and told us to hurry up.
Then we told him politely that if he had a problem we could leave and he told us :"Im the one who is leaving"
After that the lady who helped us was very nice.
But we had a very bad experience to never return!

Loved this place. Salmon Tartare and the Fois Gras Po-Boy were excellent - as well as the dessert churro. Who can resist a churro?!

Loved this place took my wife for her birthday with some friends. From the excellent wines to the great food and service this is a great place to relax and eat. The menu is great and we will return because there are so many other things we want to try.

Houston evokes many things, but Paris? Nestled in the Galleria area on Post Oak’s main strip is Philippe Restaurant + Lounge, a welcoming French restaurant adamantly doing its part to bring a little of France to this side of Houston.

Whether it's said with Continental flare or a New York accent Philippe’s is synonymous with delicious French fine dining fare. The very popular restaurant is a bright spot you can't help but turn toward for its delicious lunch and dinner specials.

If you're lucky, the gracious proprietor, Philippe Schmit may visit your table and toast to your meal with a signature cocktail or a wine from the restaurant’s extensive list. Bon Appetit!
