Toulouse Café and Bar recalls a Fin de Siecle Parisian Café where you are likely to bump into friends and find yourself in conversations with neighboring tables. At first glance you will notice the bustling activity that characterizes Toulouse: wait staff with wine openers and hot plates of food, people chatting and laughing, the clink of wine glasses… the atmosphere is sophisticated and good moods are contagious.

In the tradition of all fine bistros, Toulouse has imaginative and seasonal menus that provide exactly what its patrons long for: cozy tables open to the street, mouth-watering specialties a la Française, delicious desserts made from scratch and an extensive wine list. Enjoy the tastes of France with our exciting yet comforting dishes such as our famous quiches, an expertly cooked trout almondine or the best mussels in the city.

Dine with us and be transported to Paris, if only for a moment.

    We sat on the patio on a July evening, there was just enough air-conditioning to keep us comfortable. Inside seating would have been very loud. We had a perfect evening!

    We love Toulouse! It is so much fun to eat there. The ambience is the perfect combination of classy and casual . . . just the way we like it! The food was so delicious! We will recommend it to all of our friends, and I'm sure we will eat here many times in the future.

    My boyfriend and I were celebrating our 2 year anniversary together and decided to celebrate at Toulouse. I’ve been to this location a couple of times myself so I suggested that we go. The ambiance was amazing! We had outdoor seating with a live jazz band. Our waiter couldn’t care less about us being there. He rushed us as we tried to decide what we wanted, barely checked in on us, and just had a horrid attitude the entire time. My boyfriend ordered the lobster ravioli and I ordered the salmon. Lobster ravioli was overcooked, chewy, and tasted “freezer burnt” as my boyfriend would tell it. As for me, the salmon was cooked well but was extremely under seasoned. The sweet potato mousseline was lumpy, and caramelized brussel sprouts were not caramelized at all and had a bite to them. Calamari, and the Chanel No. 6 cocktail were really good. Overall if we didn’t have the jazz band and yummy calamari keeping us in high spirits I would rate this experience unimaginably low. I also feel that if I wasn’t celebrating a very special occasion I would’ve been nonchalant about my experience, but having my anniversary night start out on a sloppy note was not what I was expecting when I decided to dine at Toulouse. As they say, better luck next time. I may not dine for a while but hopefully next time i visit the experience will be much better.

    Great drinks and French food. Very good service, even on a busy Sunday. Tables are a little tightly spaced and small by Texas standards such that we needed things cleared multiple times.

    We went to celebrate my wife's B-day and had a nice time. The inside seating area was very noisy, which made it hard to talk to one another. The food was great and we had good service. Next time, I might try sitting outside.

    Ordered the duck confit (however it tasted nothing like a duck - think it was chicken or turkey). Waiter continued to push the “daily special.” Ordered one of the daily specials - it was essentially prosciutto and melon for $19. Crab cakes were good. Risotto was decent. Not impressed.
