Went for restaurant week. Seated in a glass enclosed patio with good views and only one other table. The food, service and ambience were excellent. The menu had entrées which I consider over priced but the restaurant week menu had excellent choices at a reasonable price. The desserts were exceptional

We went for our wedding anniversary. Cinq is so quiet and romantic. The service makes you feel very special. I had the duck, and it was cooked to perfection. Cinq is not cheap, but you definitely get your money's worth. We had a very sweet, memorable evening.

Took advantage of the Restaurant Week menu. All 3 in our party had the filet. Very tender and perfectly cooked. 2 of us had the bread pudding which was among the best I've had. Our waiter was outstanding and helped make the evening an enjoyable one. I love not only the restaurant but the whole place. Rooms, gallery, lounge, etc. are all special.

La Colombe d’Or is a boutique hotel which houses a rather exclusive fine dining restaurant. Being the romantic type, I had a half dozen red roses waiting at our table which greeted us as we were seated. Deborah and I were treated to not only a sumptuous meal set in a grand dining room but the service provided by Ascencion was beyond reproach. The manager was gracious as well as he met us at the door. Because Houstonites tend to avoid fancy meals during the hottest days, we had the place to ourselves. We began our meal with a shared lump crab appetizer which was followed by grilled sea bass for my Honey, and I enjoyed roast rack of lamb. The dessert sampler is not to be missed.
Mother's Day Lunch
Food and service at this iconic restaurant were excellent. However, there was a fairly limited menu for Mother's Day. Ambience was very quiet. Probably a better venue for older adults, although our college and high school age kids enjoyed the food. I would recommend this restaurant for special occasions, in particular. It is pricey, though, but that's fine when you get excellent food and service as we had.
Impeccable Service, Remarkable Fod
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.
Dead on a Friday night
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.
The nicest Valentine's dinner ever
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!
a bit tired . . .
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.
Elegant Dining with Attentive Service
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.
Houston Restaurant Week at Cinq
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)
