Ouisie's – Went there for breakfast yesterday and was very disappointed. Expensive (11.00-16.00 for breakfast items), slow service, no bread basket and horrible weak "Illy" coffee. Not going back for sure.
Oui Oui The Best Fish I Have Ever Had! – I had the opportunity to visit Ouisie's Table this weekend. I was not disappointed. Located in a residential area, this restaurant is often overlooked. Offering two areas for dinning; the patio and the interior, Ouisie blends Texan, Mexican, and Cajun flare seamlessly.
I was seated on the patio, which was located in a garden surrounded by vine arches and even though it was outside it was not too unbearable under the night sky.
I started dinner with the Cold Avocado Soup, which was chilled perfectly and had a bit of pepper to it. I continued to the Baked Rainbow trout on a bed of Spinach Mashed Potatoes. the fish was cooked to perfection and melted in my mouth. I accompanied my dishes with the house wine and was pleasantly surprised by their pairing.
I will have to visit this place again, hopefully for another special occasion.
Terrible service, mediocre food – Had reservations for two for Sunday brunch at 1:00 PM and were promtly seated outdoors. It took at least five or six requests for water and silverware. After fifteen or twenty minutes of no service I had to get up and go find a waiter. After several complaints of no service a manager came by and offered the excuse that they had several large parties and were stretched thin. If that was the case then they should never have seated us. He took our order of seafood crepes which were promptly delivered. They were dry and tasteless. Couldn't find a waiter or manager to complain. Finally asked for a bill ($58.00 including a 15% TIP) We left thouroughly disatisfied
Food was terribic, service bad – The food was terrific, but the service was definteily lacking. Other than the fact that we were seated in the very far corner, backed up against the wall, the atmosphere seemed very nice. We were seated at our table for more than 10 minutes before any wait staff decided to come by the table. Service went downhill from there. Our waitress, obviously, not very experienced, never seemed to get out of the weeds. Too bad.
great food, great service, great music – We've been a few times, but had stopped going on the weekends because the music in the dining room was so loud! They have a new pianist and singer that is wonderful. The food was wonderful and creative as always. The manager stopped by and chatted with us and the waiter was very attentive. We had a bottle of the suggested wine and shared the pear/apple dessert with ice cream. Delicious! We'll be back for the great food & service as well as the new soft Frank Sinatra style music. We love Ouisie's Table!
Great food, relaxed atmosphere, excellent service – I have been coming here for years. I love the relaxed, and non-business dinner, feel of this place. The jazz duet on Saturday evening was a bonus. Our waitress was splendid, coming by to give information and pour another glass of wine, but was not too visible or intrusive. As usual, the food was outstanding. The peppered tuna was perfectly seared and the blue cheese steak was cooked to perfection, as was the chocolate cake for dessert. We appreciated the diversity of the menu (heavy and light) and the number of affordable wines. There was a wedding going on in the side room and we had no idea. Service was still on point and the noise level was not affected at all. Still a big thumbs up for Ouisie's Table!!!
One of Houston's Finest – A friend heard me bragging about Ousie's Table and told me there were some negative reviews on line. I looked and had to respond with my own experience, especially since one never can tell when negative things start showing up whether it's really true or part of a campaign for some other reason. I have eaten at Ouisie's many times, and most recently took associates from Paris there after they asked to eat some of the Southern food I had bragged to them about over the years. Our evening could not have been better for me or for how a couple of well-versed French visitors now see our city. The brandied oysters started the compliments and the quail and also the chicken-fried venison kept them going. I have heard since from mutual friends in Paris who said they have heard over and over how great Ouisie's is. That is not an easy thing for a Parisian to admit! Ousie's Table is one of our city's finest restaurants. It's food never gets dull. The rooms are wonderfully comfortable, and the staff has always been professional. One assistant manager even heard my associate's accents and began speaking French with them. My biggest regret is if any of these negative reviews has caused one person not to experience the best for his or herself.
Last time at the table – I used to always choose Ouisie?s when I wanted to have a great lunch. Lately, however, I have become increasingly disappointed in Ouisie's. The reasons I liked this restaurant were that I could enjoy a lunch with friends, get good service, good food, and enjoy the fact that the ambiance was conducive to conversation. Ouisie's was our favorite. Sadly, my last visit this past week will probably be my last visit. A friend took me there, her treat, to celebrate. I was embarrassed that my favorite lunch place served us each a sad little crab cob salad composed of one boiled egg, about a cup of undignified lettuce, and probably at most one third cup of crab that still had shell in it. We had plain iced tea and plain coffee for dessert. The price tag was over $50.00! With tip and the $3.00 valet charge, we went away without dessert (the waiter never asked us, we had to ask for bread too, and he never came by with a pepper mill) and she spent over $60.00 for a very mediocre lunch for the two of us. I was ashamed to have suggested the restaurant. I won't suggest it again! There are too many places in Houston where one can get a lovely meal and not feel somehow "cheated."
Enjoy tastes of the South, combined with regional Gulf Coast accents in one of this Galleria-area restaurant's cozy dining rooms. – In Short
Owner and executive chef Elouise Adams Jones presents Southern cuisine accented with inspirations from Texas, Louisiana and Mexico. The main dining room is spacious but retains an intimate quality, with a homey fireplace and a large blackboard announcing daily specials. Other rooms provide uniquely decorated indoor and outdoor settings ideal for group dining and special events. Menu favorites include chicken fried steak, sea bass, chicken curry, lamb chops, fried oysters and a selection of fresh salads.
Great place – The prices are outrageous for what the menu offers. I remember my cousin having her wedding in the courtyard and her reception in the back room. It was a very beautiful, packed wedding with good food. The pecan crusted chicken breast stuffed with spinach was great.
