Restauranteur Shawn Virene put the POP into Houston with his wildly successful a’Bouzy. This champagne-fueled spot located in the tony River Oaks neighborhood of town attracts a stylish crowd all day. The bar is always bustling and the patio echoes with the cry – “a Bouzy!” every time a bottle is sabered tableside. In fact, most tables will have multiple wine buckets close by, keeping the bubbly cool. The fresh, ripe American menu features seasonal seafood, salads, small-shareable plates, large raw bar and prime meats. The wine list curated by Virene, is both the best-priced on bubbly and wines in the city. The interiors have a sophisticated rustic vibe with exposed brick, reclaimed woods and a color palate of creams and blues. The effervescent appeal of bubbles is reflected in a light installation that mimics bubbles floating overhead. The spacious patio is a magnet for the stylish clientele that enjoy the year-round garden. The best thing is Champagne and wine is at or below retail

    I’d never been to a’bouzy before and it was a cool place. Busy, energetic/ loud, with a French cafe design. That said, the service started pretty poorly as I believe our server was quite busy. I’d asked for drink recommendation, or any specialty, but the waiter did not have one as he said he didn’t drink. The service did get better but we each had just one drink and two appetizers. Would have likely stayed to enjoy more but our check came promptly so we took this as our cue to exit.

    This is my third time having an issue with “Oliver”. I LOVE A’Bouzy and am definitely a regular and no bad service in the world can keep me away, but if I can avoid Oliver as a server, I will.

    Great place for brunch! Food was delicious and we loved yelling A’Bouzy! whenever a bottle popped! Manager made us feel so welcome as it was our first brunch with our 6 month old boy. It can be a little nerve-racking trying to brunch with baby- and we felt at ease with his friendliness. Will be back for sure!

    One of the best dining experiences I have ever had. The food was “out of this world” excellent. Their wine selection is paramount to a Napa Valley winery. White glove service, but still casual and comfortable. Eat here!

    The staff from hostess to server seemed uninterested. The only highlight was the bus guy and other guy who brought out our food as they both engaged and was attentive. Isabelle our server made this experience underwhelming as she was not very attentive, I’m not sure if she was not having a good day but as we came to celebrate my birthday she barely wanted to say happy birthday. She forgot items, this was disappointing as this restaurant was highly recommended and the other person in my party was there before and was very sad. I’d give it another chance to see if it was just a bad day even though it was not busy yet.

    I like the restaurant ver much. The one thing I would love to have is nice French bread from places like Costco, Common Bond and some other bakeries in stead of popcorn which I cannot eat. The house French bread is like sponge and no crust. Nice Champagne and good French bread go together. Another thing is many seafood dishes have bacon which kills the taste of seafood and would be nice to have a choice with no bacon without extra charge for it.

    We loved a'Bouzy for the food, atmosphere, great service and world-class people-watching. Menu items we chose were heirloom tomatoes & burrata, trout meuniere, salmon with risotto, bread pudding and lime tart. Everything was great. An impressive wine and sparkling selection was accompanied by expertise from our very attentive service and the restaurant manager. We were seated immediately early on a Sunday evening; had we waited, the bar looked great and comfortable. We will be back.

    a´ Bouzy just became my favorite restaurant. A friend of mine invited me for dinner last Thurday. Came Sunday and I brought my family for brunch. Can´t wait to go back again and keep trying their abundant menu selection. So far, all has been great. Also, their wine menu is one of the most impresive I have seen. And with decent markup. Great place. Only recomendation, serve the bone marrow with tortillas and not with bread.

    My friends and I went to a’Bouzy for brunch, overall it was a nice place with a upscale feel. I would not recommend going for brunch, they had limited options and no mimosas. I got the chicken fried steak and eggs, it was okay. I will definitely be back to try their dinner menu. It seems like that’s the better time to go. They have complimentary valet, which is a major plus. I would say it is definitely worth the try.

    Keep your items on you!! I left my crossbody on the chair and not even 10 minutes I was back and told the hostess I had just left and left a bag behind. She quickly dismissed me and without looking - she told me nothing was behind a counter except one black tote that was not mine. I found a manager to speak to and he tried to help. He went to the counter as well to see if anything was turned in. And suggested maybe it was a nearby table with customers. I ran back to my table to see in case it was still on the chair a second time. Wasn’t there. As I walk back in a bust boy or worker told me my bag was at the counter with the hostess. I come back to the host counter and she hands my crossbody OPENED. I know it was not opened and I was missing my wallet. I told the manager I was missing my wallet but have my bag. I noticed there was an admissions ticket to the butterfly museum that I had in my crossbody on the host counter. I told the hostess. I’m missing my wallet and this is my ticket. It doesn’t make sense why it is here near the iPad on the counter. She proceeded to throw the ticket away on the ground and avoided eye contact. Another lady came by and told me she turned my bag in and was searching for items under the counter. She held my wallet and said this is all that is in here. I said that right there is my wallet. Thankfully I have all of my items and belongings just unfortunately that I had to go through so much and that I could’ve left without my wallet and valuables because the lack of honesty and integrity that I saw here
