I'm just back from valentines lunch with my wife. We both loved the restaurant and hotel. We had a nosey around upstairs and were very impressed by the art and the suites. I highly recommend Restaurant Cinq, it has so much character, very classy and the food is fantastic. Most importantly this place is better value than other high end restaurants in the area. It's not cheap but worth it. Go
great food but becareful for final bill. – becareful - they will charge you for
many things that you do not ask for
and for things you may think are part of the service.
therefore, ask for all costs upfront with no "getcha" bogus things like valet, cake cutting service, gratuity.
ask before you receive makes it a difficult place to take a date and feel comfortable.
Poor service, Excellent food – My boyfriend and I dined here to celebrate Valentine's Day because of the recent article on MSN: "Top 10 Most Romantic restaurants in the U.S.". We were disappointed to find that we were being sat at a closed- in porch with a window unit air conditioner hanging from the doorway.
The server was far from offering "fine dining" experiences for us. He was simply an order taker who had no interest in making our evening memorable. The server assistants were more attentive to us than our waiter.
The restaurant was very quiet, which made conversation awkward.
The only saving grace was that the food was excellent! Lobster Bisque was top notch!
The experience certainly was not worth the $150 we paid for the two of us to dine.
Merely ordinary – My husband and I went to this restaurant to celebrate Valentine's Day. The waiter was impatient and rude. He behaved as if we were the ones to thank him for being at the restaurant. Unfortunately, the atmosphere did not change throughout the evening, the service continued inattentive and the food came cold. We were disappointed that a restaurant of that reputation was unable to deliver a good ambiance, and plates that were presented, and tasted, merely ordinary.
Best in Houston – Everything is perfect time and time again. We have always had a wonderful time here. 5stars all the way around.
Beautiful suroundings – Whenever I am to be in the Montrose area I always get a reservation here. Excellent food, great service and a beautiful dining room.

Unparalleled Houston French Cuisine – I agree with the previous reviewers, this place is fantastic.
I went on a Tuesday night and it was almost empty, so maybe that has something to do with it, bu I was thoroughly thrilled.
The place, the menu, the wine list, the service, and the dessert were all terrific.
The only thing I'd change was the escargot. It wasn't great and didn't match all the other wonderful things this place has to offer.
wonderful surroundings – excellent food and beautiful ambience. when they offer the chateau briand be sure to try it. the salon is also an incredible place to host a party. staff is very helpful and courteous.
The six rooms of this elegant Old-World hotel are as sumptuous as the French cuisine served in its acclaimed restaurant. – In Short
Every inch of La Colombe d'Or evokes an air of royalty, from plush southern French furnishings and dining room to the walnut-paneled bar and library. This European-style establishment, built in 1923 by Humble Oil founder W.W. Fondren, has become a benchmark for luxury and sophistication. Each individually appointed suite has a king-size bed and private dining room, while the 2,000-square-foot penthouse also has a private dressing area and whirlpool.
Delicious – My girlfriends and I celebrated my birthday at this place and were surprised at how great everything was. The way they greeted us at the door, to the table setting, the champagne, b-day cake, food! it was wonderful.
