Fortunately, Houston has many romantic restaurants. However, in my opinion, celebrating the romance with French food in a romantic setting is the best way to start or rekindle a romance while dining.
So, this article enlists the three best romantic restaurants which offer exquisite French cuisine. Take your date, your partner or spouse here for an intimate evening and it is guaranteed that both of you will not be disappointed.
# 1 French Restaurant for a Romantic Evening in Houston, Texas
Chez Nous French Restaurant
217 S Avenue G
Humble, TX 77338
Located in the small, quiet suburban town of Houston, Humble this 26 years old restaurant earns the top slot for its ambiance, food, and service. This is a couple-owned restaurant, where the wife, Sandra cooks and the husband, Brach manages. Not only that everything is well cooked, they also serve very quickly.
This restaurant is located in a setting that was once a church. The décor theme is French cottage style. The walls are adorned with beautiful paintings made by Sandra. The lighting, the crockery and the furnishings are so well-placed that any couple will instantly feel closer to each other.
The taste of the food is impeccable. Everything is prepared innovatively and yet it can win the title of a classic. Anyone who goes there must try the lamb chops and their seasonal goodies too. Another factor that contributes to the taste and quality of the food is its freshness. Everything offered on the menu is guaranteed to be bought no older than 24 hours. A huge variety of wine is also available.
The waiters are quick and professional. They will never fail to welcome you warmly and to be there just the moment when you need them. Another good thing is that their staff is very knowledgeable about the food and the wines that the restaurant offers. Reservations are not necessary but call them for directions.
# 2 French Restaurant for a Romantic Evening in Houston, Texas
La Colombe d’Or
3410 Montrose Blvd.
Houston, TX 77006
Those who want to visit a famous proposal spot of Houston must go to La Colombe d’Or. This place has made way to this list for not only its highly romantic setting but also its tasty food and service.
The romantic setting of a boutique hotel in a historic building is definitely something not to miss by a couple who wants to spend some intimate moments together. If one manages to go early, the place is empty enough to roam around and take a good look. There is an art gallery upstairs. Most of the artists featured there are from Europe and the work is wonderful.
The contemporary French food that this restaurant offers is very tasty. Other than the French food, this place also offers some Texan meat specialties. In the meat dishes beef is dominant. The restaurant has a nice selection of French wines and they serve their own label, which is absolutely worth giving a try.
The service is quick and the staff is always concerned about costumers’ satisfaction. Do not worry if you cannot make it early to the restaurant because their staff has the ability to handle large crowds extremely well.
# 3 French Restaurant for a Romantic Evening in Houston, Texas
2811 Bammel Lane
Houston, TX 77098
Since this place allows casual attire, it is a great romantic place to stopover if one is on the road with one’s sweetheart. The cottage setting near to the river is so beautiful that one can even overlook the taste of the food. However, the food does not disappoint either.
The cuisine of this place is French and European. This is also a chef-owned restaurant. Something that I really like about this place is that the menu changes every week or every few weeks. So, it is definitely not a place where people go for devouring the same dishes years after years. It is a place where people go with the trust that everything that the chef makes is going to be delicious.
Picturesque outdoor seating is also available. The service is very good. The staff is attentive, warm, and friendly. This place is great for lazy brunches on the holidays. A couple can also check them out Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday nights because they have live music then, which is an absolute treat.
Since the prices of this place are very reasonable, it is better to make reservations first.
