The owners of Étoile Cuisine et Bar, Chef Philippe Verpiand and Monica Bui, have created an inviting, warm European environment where both traditional and seasonal French food are front and center. "We want to dispel the notion that French food is heavy and pretentious," says the team, recently transplanted to Houston from San Diego, where they owned the famed Cavaillon Restaurant. Everything about Étoile Cuisine et Bar, from the inviting outside facade to the intriguing interior design to the high quality service, is meant to convey a feeling of truly being in France. With Chef Philippe's take on a seasonal menu using a French technique, it's a place where fine food lovers come together, not on a special occasion, but to enjoy every day.

    The food was amazing. Our server was amazing. And the prices were reasonable. We had a group of 6 and all ordered from the Houston Restaurant Weeks menu. The foie gras was melt-in-your-mouth and probably the largest piece I've ever had. The duck was perfectly cooked and tender. The dessert (creme prise a la pistache) was so good that I finished it all even though I was already completely stuffed. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about wines and offered excellent recommendations based on the food we ordered. The only thing I didn't particularly like was that there was a TV playing sports at the bar - it kind of detracted from the otherwise upscale ambiance, but not enough that I would rate this place any lower. I will definitely be coming back here.

    We both enjoyed the Restaurant Weeks menu last night and everything was delicious, although my wife claimed the lobster bisque was dish of the night. Our server was great; professional yet personable and very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. The courses were paced very nicely, and we felt no rush to end our dinner. The value was excellent, and we'll be back in the future.

    The appetizers (starters) are the best in the city. The sole was a joke, thin and tasteless. My husband loved the chicken thighs.... The rolls were very delicious. The Old Fashion drink was not good. The staff was excellent.

    We love this restaurant, it's quiet and elegant. The food is outstanding, this time we had steak frittes, and fish of the day for main courses and shared the lobster gazpacho for an appetizer. The lobster gazpacho was an excellent starter, cold and refreshing on a hot Houston evening. the main courses were cooked and seasoned to perfection.

    Food was great as always and priced fairly. Service was very good compared to excellent when we have our favorite server (he was on vacation). We like the vibe. Drinks and wine are fairly priced, but did get deceived on the wine. Ordered a bottle of 2018 Domaine Sequin Gevray Chambertin for $135 a good price. But got 2020. I checked when it tasted a little young. Told the waiter and it was kind of so what that's what we have. I didn't ask for a better price. Can we keep the wine list prices up to date which should be easy since they are being printed on normal paper.

    We had the best waiter! He was just the right amount of attentive. The food was fantastic. I wanted something light for dinner so I ordered the lobster and avocado salad. It was delicious and just what I wanted. My fellow diners had onion soup, scallops, and braised veal cheek. They were both wowed. We will definitely be back.

    Always a first rate food and service experience and this time was no exception. From the ravioli appetizers and chevre and beet salad to the short ribs and lemon sole all was outstanding! Artan is an excellent server and always makes you feel special. I highly recommend anyone who appreciates quality across the entire restaurant to try Etoille.

    First time at Etoille I am from out of town visiting my son . He recommended the restaurant. Every dish we tried was so delicious. We had the mushroom ravioli for an appetizer the sauce was amazing and the ravioli light with the right amount of stuffing. I had seared scallops on paella also cooked perfectly. My son had coq a vin that was amazing. He ate that the last time he dined there and loved it so much. Apple tartine for dessert so delicious. Staff and server were excellent. Next time I am back in Houston I will be eating there again!

    Three of us met for brunch at Etoile. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, the seating was comfortable and the furnishings were sufficiently soft to stop the horrible echo and clatter that makes conversation impossible at so many of the newer restaurants. We were made welcome and not rushed. I cannot find a single thing to criticize. It was great.

    Wonderful French cuisine! Dinner menu has a wonder range of choices starting with the very traditional coq de vin. But multiple fish choices, beef cheeks, and my favorite, foie gras torchon. All awesome. Great place for lunch, too. Done both in the last couple of weeks.
