Bistro Toulouse Ratings and Reviews
Excellent food as always. We ordered off the Restaurant Week menu and our dinner did not disappoint. We opted for the wine pairing and enjoyed interesting choices that went very well with our food. Our server was attentive and helpful. The only negative thing I have to say is that the tables are very close together and we were seated uncomfortably close to a table of 4 middle-aged women who were obnoxiously loud. They were so disruptive we should have asked to be re-seated and I now regret not doing so.
Bistro Toulouse providws the "real deal" in country french dining. Casual, unpretentious and delicious food. If you are not familiar with french cooking, try this. If you are, you will not be disappointed. Handcrafted cocktails and a well thought out wine list to compliment the menu make this a great dinner experience.
Bistro Toulouse is always consistent as a great Brunch Spot with perfectly prepared Eggs Benedict (love the Hollandaise!) and excellent service. Jason and the Bartender gave us very attentive and friendly service. We enjoy Brunch after church many Sundays at Bistro Toulouse.
The server seemed harried and was very slow in getting drinks to the table. At re end of the meal, we waited at least thirty minutes for the bill.
All of the food was very good with the exception of the escargots, which suffered from a strange preparation. We've had the escargots here before and they were fine.
We've eaten here before and will return, but this was not up to our usual experience.
Our first visit. We had heard/read a lot of good reviews so we decided to try it. Our experience was somewhat influenced by restaurant week....not necessarily the best time to try a restaurant the first time. Nevertheless, our dinner was quite good, and certainly tasty enough to draw us back for another visit. My wife had the mushroom soup, superb. The onion soup I ordered was very good, as expected in a French bistro. For entrees, my hanger steak was done exactly to order and was very good, well seasoned but perhaps a little overpriced at $26. The accompanying frites were fresh and perfectly fried. My wife's coq au vin was a bit bland. I don't think it is a regular menu item. Our server was excellent, informed and attentive without being intrusive. We will head back to try the mussels, a house specialty, and other dishes. We would recommend this restaurant as a pretty good value on the greater Charleston dining scenes.
We celebrated my fiancé's birthday there. The octopus appetizer was delicious and different. The Napoleon with goat cheese was absolutely delicious for a vegetarian entrée and everyone at the table and agreed that the chicken was the best. This was also the recommendation of our wait person. Everything we ate was really really good!
I can't say enough about this restaurant. I have been there many times and it is always very good. The mussels are the best I ever had and such a value at $14.
The steak tartare is excellent and the French onion soup is superior. Chef here has a great touch with sauces and bases for food. Great place!!
Third time here, very good each time. The only down side on the food I have is it is served with "sort of" a side, but the amount is very small. I guess they figure you will order an app which we normally do not. Jason our server was basically new or inexperienced. He barely had a clue what to do. Good value for the quality of food...and they have a reasonable corkage fee.
Bistro Toulouse was a lovely surprise in Mt Pleasant. The location is not where you'd expect to find such a charming French Bistro. In the middle of a shopping center on Ben Sawyer Blvd. Yet, there it is. We went for my in-laws anniversary and they loved it. The bread amazing! We just got back from Paris and, while the outside environment was not close, the food and ambiance was great! I had onion soup (yes, this is a must) and the special of short ribs, whipped potato, and spinach. Perfecto! My wife had the seafood platter (not really a platter) that was lovely. The deserts would make the French proud. The only thing I missed was a French waitress and French music. Our waitress was from New York but she was awesome! Great place. We are going back!
Disappointing food - mixed green salad was boring and tasteless. Snapper special was bland.
Service was terrible. Our waitress completely ignored our table throughout the evening - took 30mins just to get our order in. Didn't get our bread until order was taken. Food came out fairly promptly but then we had to wait 20mins for the check. We basically had to throw ourselves into the aisle to get her attention. Otherwise, she never made eye contact with us.
Don't plan to return...too many other great restaurants to go to in town.
Overall everything was good except getting the food was so slow. It wasn't busy, maybe 4 tables total and took almost 2 hours for brunch. We had a small child with us so we weren't trying to have a leisurely meal. The beignets were overcooked, the mussels were very good and a great value. We liked it and would go back but definitely not for a quick meal!
Have been several times and am never disappointed. The food is delicious, the service is also quite good even when crazy busy. Noise level can be high with a crowd, I think only because of the arrangement of all the seating. Nothing that could be done about it....it's a Bistro! They have
some great drinks to compliment your food selections or just to have with a nice appetizer. Don't forget to order a souffle!
Dinner at Bistro Toulouse the day before Bastille Day. Great specials but the menu here always pleases. We started with foie gras pate and blue cheese plate. Mussels and frites and a fine halibut special for mains. Raspberry souffle was fantastic. They were featuring a 3 wine tasting flight for $16 per person that was a great value and paired well with our entire meal. Adam was our server and was very attentive and knowledgeable. Service was as good as the food! Bistro Toulouse has to be the best French restaurant in Charleston (even though it is in Mt Pleasant). Been here several times and will be back even more.
First time diners, read many good reviews finally had the opportunity to give it a try. Had the escargot for an appetizer with their fantastic warm bread it was wonderful. Being our first time I wanted to do the classics so my next course was the Cassoulet, absolutely wonderful the pork belly could have been more crisp. My husband had the hangar steak with a green peppercorn sauce and frites very good but the item that will definitely bring him back was the raspberry souffle it was outstanding. We will return to try other interesting items on the menu.
