We were in Houston last weekend and decided to give Etoile a try and we were very impressed (even my dad who is VERY hard to please). The service is outstanding as is the food. For starters we had the foie grans (terrific) and the lobster bisque. My sis really enjoyed the shop and I loved the foie gras. For mains 3 of us had the cog au vin which was Amazing and my dad had the fillet (which he devoured). Mom had the apple tart which didnt look like a traditional tart (and she did say she preferred the tarts in Paris-of course) but she did eat the whole thing (so I guess it was good :) )
Food was perfectly served and was piping hot which is a huge plus for us. All in all a great experience. Would definetly go back.

A French Restaurant in Uptown Park! Excellent service, inspired menu, and superb food. This is truly a gem in a city that generally does not appreciate French Cuisine. It is relatively small so make reservations.

Have been here many times, but never rated the restaurant, perhaps to keep others from going to it. It is my favorite restaurant. The chef owner, is always there, always seems to be in the kitchen. He always has traditional French offerings and then will always have special offerings, I have never had a bad meal there. Wait staff is very attentive and very experienced. Wine list is solid. It is elegant without being pretentious or snooty.

Went with my wife for a nice romantic evening. We chose the chefs four-course selection. Overall, while it was a $250 tab for just the two of us, the food was phenomenal! Duck was hands down the best I've ever had!
