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 have dined here approximately 60 times since they opened. In that time i have had two issues with wine. One bottle corked. Another wasn’t spoiled but was not good. By not good, I mean it was basically water. While not spoiled there was just nothing to it. Both time it was quickly remedied by the staff, and we moved on with a great dinner with great wine. Exactly what one would expect for a restaurant driven by the food/wine experience. Our latest trip was a new experience all together. We had a wine that again was not corked but just not good at all. Somm came over and basically said, @its not spoiled, nothing I can do”. I wasn’t suggesting it was spoiled by thc, but it was absolutely not right. At all. Again, easily remedied and I’m not there to try and ruin their margins by sending wines back. I’m also not describing something that simply didn’t fit my palette. We move on. We were planning to have this wine with the blue crab fingers, seared shrimp and baked oysters. 45 minutes into the experience we’ve finished the watered and no food had arrived. We asked our server about it and he responded, “I don’t know, I just work here, but I don’t work in the kitchen”. Had it not been 9:15 when this happened we would have bailed at that point. As it was we decided to stick it out. We ordered some more wines which were spectacular, apps arrived and they were great. Entrees we’re not all that great. The normally delicious seafood pot pie seemed like the seafood had been cooked many days previously. It was Luke warm at best. The lamb shank was void of any flavor at all, was dry, and just not up to standard. The airline chicken was mealy and dry and room temperature . Sides were stone cold. The service experience was extremely poor. Management response to subpar wine was that of someone who doesn’t care if very longtime and loyal customers ever return. After many years of this being a staple in our rotation this experience has eliminated A’bouzy as a staple.

    Drinks were good and not over priced. Food was decent. Although we made a reservation there was a 45 min wait to sit inside. The patio was surprisingly loud.

    Make sure hostess doesn’t seat you on the patio at the peak of summer when your reservation was for indoors.

    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.
