    We sat outside with our 2 dogs on a slightly windy and definitely damp day to eat outside. Obviously we were the only ones out there due the cold. Service was fantastic. They continued to check on us and the food was fantastic. It was a Sunday around noon. Quite busy I must say. This was our first time going as we moved (thankfully) from Illinois. We both had the lobster bisque. WOW! Chunky and flavorful. My wife had the Greek salad. She loved it. I had the gyro and fries. Excellent! The meat was a lot better than any old gyro joint in the city. Never thought a gyro could be classy but this one was! Went and paid inside as it started to rain. The bartender was very attentive on how our food and time was outside. Seemed like a really nice guy. We Will definitely be back but next time go drop the dogs off after our morning walk. A+++++

    This was our first visit and we will be back. It’s a wonderful space with a live pianist (perhaps just for dinner?). My wife has the paella and I had the blackened snapper, and muscles for appetizer. The food was very good. Service was equally good. We plan to visit (probably tomorrow) for their breakfast. The menu looks wonderful.

    The choices that we made were to try some ‘different’ items. Our tastes were expecting something different. This was not due to any error or mistake by the restaurant - only to our choices. We will try again in the future.

    We had come across good reviews of Cafe Benedicte previously but last night was our first time there as the restaurant is 40 minutes drive from where we live. It turned out that Cafe Benedicte was worth every minute of that long drive. Everything were to our liking -- from the foods to the ambience, to the services. For appetizer, my wife had the Hummus & Naan while I tried the Ceviche. Both were excellent. For main course, the missus had the Multigrain Protein Bowl (which looked very good but I didn't "sampled") and I had the Braised Lamb Shank. It was super tasty and fall-off-the-bone, fork tender. The accompanied mashed potatoes and haricots verts were excellent as well. For dessert, we shared a piece of Carrot Cakes which was soft, moist, and just the right level of sweetness. We also enjoyed the live piano throughout our meal. Before heading home, we stopped at the bar for half an hour enjoying a night cap and listened to a few more songs from the highly skilled and entertaining piano players. All and all, it was a wonderful evening, and despite the long drive, we plan to visit Cafe Benedicte again soon, and bring a few friends with us next time.

    Great menu, great food, attentive service. The one tiny nitpick is that the Crown Royal in the Yankee Manhattan does not stand up to the vermouth. Should switch to rye or high-rye bourbon. The live piano player adds to the ambiance at just the right volume.

    We visited for Houston Restaurant Weeks in large part because they had many gluten free options (for us going GF is not a choice we willingly made). Some restaurants offering GF options are adequate or disappointing. Definitely not the case here. My wife and I plan on going back in the future.

    Our first time at Café Benedicte and we were impressed. We are normally not in this part of Memorial and chose it to try a new restaurant for Houston Restaurant Weeks. The selections were very good and the portions were generous. All in all, an exceptional value with friendly service throughout. Another thing that stood out is they appeared to have a regular clientele in the. restaurant. People return for a reason! I previewed the regular menu and we will definitely return here to dine.

    Cafe Benedicte was our first foray for HRW 2022 and it did not disappoint! We both started with the Chunky Gazpacho with Avocado, which was spicy and cold, the perfect starter for the Houston heat. Entrees were Wasabi Salmon and Tangine Chicken, both of which were amazing. Portion size for both was very generous and a fantastic value. We finished with Creme Brulee, a creamy and light finish to an excellent meal!
