    Great mussels and appetizers. Service was rushed. Servings of wine were 30% of the volume usually served in most restaurants.

    Chef Kevin García went above and beyond despite being short of staff. He was taking the orders, serving, greeting guests all while cooking a delicious lunch. Thank you, Kevin! And he kindly gave us the best soufflé dessert ever!

    A classic French bistro. All the dishes you would expect… croque monsieur, steak treats, quiche, lovely salads, and one of the best French onion soups I’ve ever had.

    The food at PS21 Restaurant was exceptional - each dish was beautifully presented and bursting with flavor. The service was attentive without being overbearing, and the staff were knowledgeable about the menu. The ambiance was cozy and inviting, perfect for a dinner. While the prices were on the higher side, the quality of the food justified the cost. I highly recommend trying their escargot, the filet with whipped potatoes and grilled cauliflower - it was well seasoned and cooked to perfection.

    This is a hidden gem!!!! Chef Phillipe is a French culinary genius! Forget any other French restaurant in Houston, instead RUN to PS21 (the name and the exterior of the restaurant are a little bit deceiving) but inside you will find a Parisian heaven!!!!!! I’m still dreaming of the lobster bisque, steak frites and the grand marnier soufflé……mmmmm

    I have had several great meals at PS21. Chef Philippe Schmidt is a master of traditional French bistro styles-- the best food of its kind I've had in Houston by far. The atmosphere is relaxed --an elegant yet "neighborhood" vibe. No hype, or annoying dance club beats-- this is a place where you can linger over delicious food and drinks and lose track of time. It is shockingly underappreciated, perhaps partly because of its somewhat hidden (though still quite accessible) location-- which means that you likely won't have to fight crowds. And you hear each other at the table without shouting! Everything I've had on the menu-- from appetizers to dessert has been superb. Especially love the escargot, the sardine rillettes and the steak frites! Great specialty cocktails as well. Waitstaff Karina is a delight as well!
