“Good take-away desserts/pastries”
Reviewed January 1, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I went to get dessert and pastries to take-away, not a full meal. Quality is solid given the low prices. It's a relatively charmless chain but good in a pinch.

“OK Restaurant and Bakery in Meyerland Plaza”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

This review is for the location in the Meyerland Plaza Shopping Center location. Food here is okay and there is plenty of selection from the menu. Desserts are also surprisingly good. Anyway, not sure if there is a lot of turnover of staff but there are times that some staff are not comfortable with their jobs and duties. We were overcharged one time but we quickly noticed it so we were able to get it corrected but if we were not diligent and observant enough we could have paid more. Should new cashier/staff be with somebody who is already well trained? If we are in the area, its a good option but maybe not our first choice.

“Surprisingly awful”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

i write a lot of TripAdvisor reviews, i this is only the 2nd time i've given 1 star to a restaurant.

The food was terrible. The salad dressing was full of HFCS, the rice tasted microwaved, and the staff all seemed to be on their first day of work. Also the wine available was terrible.

i had rosemary roasted chicken with (soon before frozen) broccoli and rice but couldn't get past the first bite of rice and ate only half of the rest.

The place does not resemble a french restaurant or any restaurant in France AT ALL, but of course much worse than that is that both the food and experience were just lousy. This is the worst meal i've had in these 2months in the States.

“Good food and service with great atmosphere, but pretty pricey”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

While the food is always really good, this restaurant is pretty pricey for a place where you have to serve yourself. The atmosphere is delightful with a wood burning fireplace and very nice decor. But again, I'm used to being served for these prices!
Really do like the outdoor seating.
