Toulouse Café and Bar recalls a Fin de Siecle Parisian Café where you are likely to bump into friends and find yourself in conversations with neighboring tables. At first glance you will notice the bustling activity that characterizes Toulouse: wait staff with wine openers and hot plates of food, people chatting and laughing, the clink of wine glasses… the atmosphere is sophisticated and good moods are contagious.

In the tradition of all fine bistros, Toulouse has imaginative and seasonal menus that provide exactly what its patrons long for: cozy tables open to the street, mouth-watering specialties a la Française, delicious desserts made from scratch and an extensive wine list. Enjoy the tastes of France with our exciting yet comforting dishes such as our famous quiches, an expertly cooked trout almondine or the best mussels in the city.

Dine with us and be transported to Paris, if only for a moment.

    Definitely the best restaurant experience of the year. Our waitress was super attentive and extremely detail oriented. We had a great conversation with the general manager, and he really set the stage for our perfect evening. All of the food was excellent, mussels on point, steak was cooked perfectly, and the Spicy Paloma is a must! We will definitely be going back soon.

    Nice afternoon lunch with friends. 1/2 price wine was nice. Salmon, zucchini chips and mussels were great as was the watermelon gazpacho soup. creme brulee always a hit. Nice garden room had a good vibe. Totally enjoyed. Waiter went out of his way to get chopped egg for salmon app. Thank you!

    These was my first time at the Toulouse Restaurant I invited two friends expecting to offer them a very good meal. First we sat inside, next to us was a very noisy big table so we asked to be sitted outside, it was a little warmer but not as noisy. The attention, courtesy and diligence of the staff to satisfy our demand was excelent. But I was very dissapointed with the food; I order the salmon and it was over cooked; one of my friends order the trout and it was almost the same as my salmon but with some vegetables, none did look very appetising

    I booked an inside table when I made my reservation on opentable and when we arrived on a steamy summer night was told that all they had were outside tables. I had to ask if there was a table in the bar or if we could sit at the bar before she offered a high top table in the bar. This is the end of my disappointment. From here it was great. Our waiter Alonzo was terrific, the food was amazing, and we had a great time. I have told several people already that this is a must visit restaurant I only wish they would have honored our original requested table. To their credit, prior to our food coming they did come and offer us a small table inside but we were already comfortable so we passed.

    Great food and lively atmosphere. Only one complaint - although we had reservations, we had to wait 30 minutes for our table because we wanted to eat inside and no table was available. Worth the wait for delicious food and great service.

    I have eaten at this restaurant many many times and the food and service are usually quite good. It can get very loud in the restaurant especially on a Friday or Saturday evening. That would be the only reason why I might not dine there

    Loved Toulouse. First time there. Went for the Bastille Day party, which was also my birthday. Made reservations for indoor seating and glad we did, because it rained and outdoor seating would have been horrible. Our waitress (Kim) was amazing, constantly making suggestions on menu options and checking on us. Then I got surprised with a free birthday dessert. Will definitely be back.

    I have been to Toulouse many times and it was one of my favorite places. However, The last two lunch visits have not been up to par. On both occasions , the food was cold, the Diet Coke was flat and the my appetizer was brought to the table after my main course. It was returned. I had to eat my main course while my lunch partner had her appetizer. The waiter seemed bored ,confused and had a bad attitude. Very disappointed.
