"Seated immediately upon arrival. Service was just the right amount-no hovering and no empty glasses. Each course was served in a timely fashion. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The restaurant is lovely too. You should make this a priority on your list of restaurants to try."

"Very strange evening. This was for my wife's birthday and it was a little odd. When we arrived for our 7pm Friday night reservations we thought the place was closed. Pulling up front we could see the valet sitting on the deck and he came out. When we entered and wanted to have a pre dinner cocktail we went to the bar, only to find we were the only ones there, both the bar and the restaurant??? While we had a cocktail one other couple came in and sat in the dinning room. We moved to the dinning room and had our meal. The service was great and very attentive...what you would expect with only two tables to handle! The food was ok. The crab tower was very good, the house salad dressing was too sour and my wife had to send it back. I ordered the chicken fried filet...it was good, but I doubt it was a filet based on the texture and quality of the meat. The dessert sampler was very good, especially the bread pudding! Two other tables came in during our evening. All in all is was ok, not sure I would go back seeing how there are many other great spots in Houston. We have both eaten here many times in the past, but it has been some years."

"We had not been to La Colombe d'Or for a very long time. It was my husband's idea and it worked out just beautifully.
It is very quiet, very romantic, has great service and on top of that our food was just delicious.
We shared the rack of lamb and each had a salad and my husband also had French onion soup.
What a wonderful Valentine's dinner!

"The service was excellent and the food was really good. You get a lot of food for the price. It was relatively quiet and the ambiance was great."

"Our server and the other attendants were spectacular. I was disappointed by the flavor of the food. All was brilliantly presented, there just was a noticeable lack of love from the dishes, except for the desserts."

"The food itself was above average, served at a good temperature and very carefully. Our waiters were good, as well as professional, but not very timely. Not their fault, they were serving two other weddings, perhaps the restaurant should close to outside diners when they are this busy to provide a more timely experience to the diners.
The food courses were all prepared wonderfully, fresh, delicious, and artistically. The meal was not thrown together which is what you may sometimes experience when chefs are in a rush.
The venue itself was romantic, but old. It was a bit musty, but that may be expected when it has been in business for so long. For a French restaurant, I expected to see more french fare on the menu, but it was mostly Italian items. Apart from the escargot, I couldn't recall one French item. They didn't even serve Souffle.
If you would like a nice Italian meal in a romantic setting, this is your place. However, if you are looking for traditional French fare that matches the pricing on the meals, I would look for another venue."

"An early reservation for Dinner for four. In an empty dining room - there were only three 4-top tables. Two of them were directly in front of A/C grills, blowing out cold air. The third was literally in front of the entrance door to the dining room. (We took it anyway, in order to not be blown upon by the A/C.)
While our service was very attentive, our drink order was not correct. One of our group specifically questioned the waiter about items on the menu that might be gluten free. The diner chose one upon the assurances from the waiter that it was gluten-free. Of course - it came to the table and was indeed not gluten-free. (Gluten was in the sauce.). Except for that issue (which was quickly remedied, the food was quite good.
The ambiance, though, was akin to eating in someone's grandmother's dining room. It may have been fashionable 40 years ago but the same cannot be said now. The chairs and tables were unexceptional, the lighting was bland and indistinctive. Also - there was a large party meeting in the next room (visible through glass doors immediately adjacent to our table.) They had the chandelier in the room turned up "full-blast" so it was "in our face," so to speak. Plus I had to look at a group of 20+ people carrying on some meeting. The coup de graçe was that, at the age of SIXTY, I was the second youngest person in the room when we left. Obviously, this is not a "trendy" or "vibrant" place to dine."

"My husband and I enjoy coming here often for a glass of wine and to sit on the front porch. Dinner was enjoyable with attentive service in beautiful surroundings. The only negative aspect was the meal I had planned to order was not on their menu even though it was listed online as being served for both lunch and dinner. The waitress did her best to accomodate my request, but I ended up having to order something not desired. Otherwise, the food, service, and ambience were all very good."

"I've always wanted to try this place, but always afraid of the price. When a friend and I decided to take advantage of Houston Restaurant Weeks (and benefit the Houston Food Bank), we also decided that this would be the perfect time to visit Cinq at La Colombe d'Or.
Obviously, we had a limited menu from which to choose, but everything was good. A simple watermelon salad with feta and basil was a perfect refreshing way to start off a late August supper. I had the salmon filet with jalapeno polenta, and it, too, was perfect. The flavors were fresh and new. My friend tried the chicken-fried filet mignon with a bacon cheddar yukon mashed potatoes. Believe it or not, it was filet mignon, cooked as a chicken-fried steak! She said it was great.
Service was very attentive, but not intrusive. It was also a very busy night for them.
My only complaint was the music. I think they are trying to reach out to a younger crowd, because the music just didn't fit the architecture, the food, or the experience. At one point it was too loud, but they realized it and remedied the situation. (What kind of music would I choose? Maybe smooth jazz - though if it were just me it would be chamber music - definitely not a younger vibe! LOL)
