Excellent. Great for a celebration. I agree with one of the previous posters, dated decor, but the food more than makes up for it. Go! What are you waiting for?
Shabby Chic French Dining in the Heart of Humble – If you’re looking to celebrate your anniversary, birthday, or another special occasion, or are just in the mood to eat at an extremely nice albeit somewhat dated restaurant, then make reservations and head to Chez Nous.
Chez Nous is one of the finest dining experiences in Humble, with delicious French cuisine ready for you to enjoy. Chef Stacy Crowe-Simonson takes special care of each meal to ensure that it is perfect when it reaches your table. While the menu is expensive, the experience is divine, so well worth your time when you’re ready for the substantial expense.
Chez Nous is not a great restaurant for children, so grab a sitter the night you decide to go. The restaurant for the most part foregoes the usual pretentious nature that you can find at most French restaurants, although the maitre'd can display a flair of condescension if he deems a guest's request is beneath his station. However, the staff is generally unassuming and ready to answer any questions and be of any service.
Nothing comes close – Everything here is First Class!! Expensive but worth it. My husband brings me here for my birthday and special events. You have to try this restaurant.
Elegant Experience ! – My husband and I were looking for a very elegant fine dining experience close to home (humble) and went to CitySearch to read reviews....I must say - I was a bit nervous by some of the reviews indicating that this place was grossly overpriced but took our chances because of the description of the restaurant itself - we are SO GLAD we took the chance.
Those indicating that this place is overpriced must not be experienced in the "fine dining" world. The atmosphere is spectacular and very intimate, keeping with the french style. Scott and his staff took excellent care of us and was very attentive - we never had to flag down a server for ANYTHING.
We enjoyed the Chef's Table with Pairings (which we ALWAYS do at a French Restaurant) and this is a wonderful value for the portions of both the food and the wine servings. Stacy is very creative with her food styles, flavors, and plating. She finished us off with Chocolate Souffle (which, by the way, is my ABSOLUTE favorite!) and she did NOT disappoint me.
We were not rushed thru dinner at all and, as I am a smoker, paced dinner so that I could be excused from the table between our dinner and dessert. In addition to our dinner and wine pairings, my husband and I both had two JW Black's as well as additional glasses of our favorite wines, making our total bill $285 - NOT a bad price to pay for a few hours of excellent food, fantastic wine, and spectacular service.
If you are looking for a true fine dining experience close to home and are not afraid to pay for it this is your place. We will most definitely be making Chez Nous a regular enjoyment!!!! Thanks to everyone at Chez Nous for making our date night so wonderful!
Chez Nous - excellent – Very intimate atmosphere, with attentive staff. Food is so creative that even things one might not like, you want to try.
Scott is very knowledgeable about the best wine for your meal and Stacy instills excellence in the kitchen.
Always want to eat there when we are in Houston.
Simply the BEST! – I have been a customer for over 15 years and have never had a bad experience. The food is always inventive and the service is the best in the city. On my last visit, which was Valentines Day, the menu was more than fantastic. The Bread Pudding that went with my Filet was delicious. My husband had the veal which was just as good. I will be back!!!!!
Heard so many thigs bad experience – Had Valentines dinner ther last night. We were really looking forward to it, had heard so many good things.
Service & atmosphere was fine.
Food another issue my fish (sole) was not fully cooked, half of it was clearly raw, the cooked part had little flavor, it was supposed to have a light sauce there was none, the salmon inside was tasteless.
My husbands steak with a sauce was good according to him but made him quite ill a few hours later, he was up all night & is still ill. He normally has a cast iron stomach.
The $300 price tag for this 3 course meal & 3 glasses of wine was not nearly worth it even before my husband got ill. It was $100 pp plus 3 glasses wine.
Too bad at one time I'll bet this was a great place, it clearly was not last night & I would never return.
Unparalled Food, Strange Looks – I recently had my fifth dinner at Chez Nous. I grew up in Humble and I remember being young and hearing about this strange "fancy" restaurant hidden in our downtown hub. When i was 23 I finally had the opportunity to try it out and I was nothing short of impressed. I took my then girlfriend to celebrate her 21st birthday and we were treated like royalty. Since then we returned twice more. The food is always well prepared and the pairings are sometimes brave but yet they always work together. I have recommended this place numerous times to many friends, but our last experience was not exactly something that we enjoyed.
I don't know what I did, or how I looked but the waiter seemed very rude and snobby to me. The thing is he was our waiter every time we visited Chez Nous. He asked if we had been there, etc and we told him that we were members of the email family and that we know how everything works. We ordered the chefs tour (we like trying many different things) and let me tell you the food was spectacular. This time it was even better then the previous visits. Sadly though the waiter for some reason seemed distracted or annoyed that night. It seems they were training some new people, and he would constantly call them to the corner and reprimand them in our view. It was really distracting to our romantic dinner. We found ourselves feeling bad for what seemed to be new hires.
The part of the night that really got to me was halfway through the meal my wife saw the cheese plate. She heard the selections and wanted one. I then called the waiter over and asked if it would be possible to bring one out. He then said, "you know that will be extra, right?". At first I was confused, was he joking? If I didn't have the money to eat there, then why would i be there? I thought this must be some kind of joke, but I let it slide. I then asked my wife what she thought, and she was insulted too. Half of the reason we go there is for the service and we were not happy with our service that night. We finished the rest of our meal quickly without spending the time to enjoy it, and we left.
I don't know if it was the tone in which he spoke to us, but his demeanor that night insulted me and my wife. I may just be sensitive, but either way Chez Nous did not meet my expectations on service this last time i visited. This should not stop you from trying this absolute treasure, but next time complain if you are treated rudely, like we should have.
Customer For Over 20 Years And Will Be For Over 20 More! – My family has been going to Chez Nous for over 20 years. We know the owners after being customers for so long and the welcome is just as warm as the first time we went. The food has NEVER disappointed! It is a sensational culinary experience from beginning to end. Everything is always excellent and always is. My Mother and I were partial to a certain way they used to make their veal and every time we go they accommodate our wishes for the original sauce. I will miss Chez Nous greatly when I move to Los Angeles! Hopefully Mom will take me to Chez Nous each time I come home for a visit!
The best French restaurant in SE Texas (or just about anywhere) – This is the restaurant that's always on the top of our list. It stays there because they know what-works-with-what. We've never tried anything and said "why would anyone put these flavors together?" It is classic yet inventive and consistenly outstanding.
It's really special when you have two people with very different tastes. "He" likes meat and has several favorites. "She" likes fish and lamb and veal and oysters-- and salad after the main course, not before it,
Some people look forward to a special vacation--we look forward to lots of dinners at Chez nous. We aren't 'those' people who are going to be happy 'when'.... We're happy we can have dinner here in the middle of the week for no special reason. So have fun wherever you may go, and we'll stay home and enjoy the food and wine and service at Chez Nous.
