“Go Now!”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

Houston has great restaurants and so many of them get a lot of press. It has taken us 3 years to get to La Colombe d'Or and we wish we'd found this long ago. Everything about it is superb: remarkable ambience, fantastic food and service, and something very rare in Houston - relative quiet. You can actually have conversations without shouting at each other.

We will be returning - don't wait as long as we did!

“Superb food and very personal service, unique atmosphere!”
Reviewed 20 September 2011

LCD is one of our very great favorites in Houston. Intimate, quiet, elegant... like stepping back in time - and since it is the restored Fondren Mansion (founder of Exxon) we are talking very special. There are four dining areas, but we prefer the main room, surrounded by original art and dark paneling. The very personable service is special and the menu has been created by one of the finest young Chef's in Houston. The wine list is wonderful, with a full range of wines and prices. You can get a really tasty Red here for around $55! The Bar is wonderful, a great place to meet friends, and the front Library room is another spot to relax with a good drink. The genius behind LCD is Steve Zimmerman, who has run this classic French Intimate hotel (six lovely suites) for more than 30 years, and he knows good food and good wine! They also have a French Chateau grand ballroom attached for your 'little party' of 200 or more! All in all, La Colombe d'Or is one of the finest and most intimate restaurant experiences this side of the South of France! Please do make reservations in advance with Roberto!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 17 December 2009

Our office staff had our annual Christmas lunch here and it was fabulous. The food, although pricey, was delicious, and the service was impeccable. I would highly recommend it for a special occasion.
