    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.

    Amazing food in an intimate environment. A live piano player was a nice touch and all courses were high quality! I was a bit surprised the place wasn’t packed on a Friday evening, seems like it may be a hidden gem for now!

    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!

    I seldom write reviews but our experience was so exceptional I felt I owed one to anyone considering dining at this place. My husband and I hang up the pots and dine out most weekends. Because I didn’t make reservations in time for our typical stops I ran across this place on OpenTable and noticed the number of 5 star reviews and decided to break tradition and give a new place a try. We LOVED everything about our experience. The food, atmosphere, and service were all exceptional! If you are looking for a date night where you can talk with live piano in the background, vip service, and great food at a reasonable cost this is your place. We have found a new “regular” weekend dining experience.

    Visited on Friday night, hadn’t be in years, but glad we went. Very nice evening, piano playing near bar area, but could still have conversations with our friends. Good drinks, excellent food, too many great items on the menu, so it took us a while to order. I had Capelllini Seafood, my wife had the Couscous, I’d recommend both. We had reservations, and by 7:00 the restaurant was full. We never felt rushed, and spent 3 hours there including drinks, dinner and dessert.

    Upon entering restaurant immediately felt comfortable. The ambiance is very inviting as were all the employees. The food was excellent; especially the Blackened Redfish Ponchatrain. Asked for extra sauce and glad I did. The fish was perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection. I tried the pork chop my friend ordered. It looked a little undercooked but when taking a bite it was excellent and cooked correctly. Waiter was very attentive until it came time to get the bill. For some reason it took awhile to get the bill. I will definitely be going back! Thank you for an excellent dinner!

    We have been to Cafe Benedict’s numerous times and it was wonderful as usual. Calamari and Caesar salad were excellent. And the Chicken Marsala was perfect. But the best is the crepe brûlée for dessert. Yum! Service is always good and the owner stopped by our table a couple of times to check in with us. Thank you and see you again soon!
