    Overall review of the food is fantastic. The special that day was yellowfin tuna with shrimp and sauce. The Tuna was excellent and fresh and the sauce was complimentary but one of the best Tuna dishes I've had recently. Appetizer we ordered the octopus, which was an entree but we split. Quite a bit to eat but very tender. I have not been to Maison Pucha much but for a Heights restaurant the Menu is exceptional and certainly way above the expectations. Nice location and very nice atmosphere, but not crowded. I've been there for dinner once and the restaurant was full. Could use a bigger bar though and I think I would go just for the bar. All in, great food.

    I met an old friend for a catch up brunch. We had a great long brunch, the wait staff was patient and attentive. We sat for two hours catching up, enjoying sharables. It was a fantastic, low pressure meal. The food was presented in a Instagrammable way and I will absolutely be recommending it to my foodie friends.

    The place was nearly empty at 8:00pm on a Friday ... now I know why. Unfortunately, the dishes (recipes and preparation) are simply not competitive in the Houston market.

    We always enjoy Maison Pucha. Since they were without power a few days before, several of their choices weren't available . . . but the waiter didn't mention until after we ordered and then he came back. So - he knew all the specials but didn't know about 3-4 items they didn't have. The waiter also seemed slow/distracted. Everything was excellent except for the steak frites, which was just good. Since my first choice wasn't available, I switched to the steak frites. Fries were fantastic as usual. Steak was a bit chewy (but flavorful). Again - given the recent power outage, we were just glad they were open and are definitely returning.

    My first experience here was on Mothers Day so it was probably very busy for them. The food was good, especially the appetizers. Our waitress was very nice but not the most attentive. We were out of drinks much of the dinner and she forgot our coffee. We also received the wrong desserts which we didn’t even bring up- they were still good. Although this is not our waitresses fault, we waited for about 30 minutes for our entrees. Not sure about the long wait because even though it was Mother’s Day it didn’t seem terribly busy. Overall though the food was very tasty just not sure that it was worth it for the price point.
