While I wish only success for Mr. Lombardi et al, I would hope the crowds would stay away when I choose to go there.

Terrific customer service and the food was out of this world. Can’t say enough about Abe our waiter either. First time here and was full of suggestions and attended to us well.

We celebrated a friend’s bd and had a lovely lunch! Eduardo was a good server. He was attentive without being overwhelming and the food was delicious as always! Cannot recommend Toulouse enough for a lovely meal whether for a special occasion or just to treat yourself to a nice meal on any particular day.

This reatuarant never fails but only delivers excellent food, service, and atmosphere. The front patio is 'dog friendly' and some of the nicest people bring their nicest dogs. Very French and very fine. I recommend this restaurant greatly.

I’m torn... i want to give this place 4/5 stars for atmosphere and service but the quality of the food holds me back. Here’s why:

Almost 2 weeks ago my wife and I visited on a busy Friday evening. We ordered some drinks, she had the burger, I ordered the filet au poivre. I ordered it medium rare. The steak came out fully rare. Mind you, it’s about 1.5 inches thick so I believe it is not that hard to keep the cuisson under control. After showing the manager, I sent it back. When it returned 2 min later, it came back raw still. I asked again and was finally given a ‘medium rare’ steak. We were comped the steak and I didn’t think more of it.

Fast forward a week and we invited a few friends for an evening and went back to Toulouse to give their steak a second chance. Long story short, I know order it medium, expecting to receive a medium rare. Low and behold it did come out medium rare, proving that they just cannot keep their cuisson under control. Didn’t complain this time as I kind of predicted it and proactively ordered. On top of that, 80% of my friends mussels were closed, which could indicate non-fresh mussels (she didn’t take any risks).

As I said, I’m torn. Next time, if there is one, I’ll go for something else.

Love this place...service was outstanding, they had a Belle Glos Pinot Noir on their wines list and the food was wonderful...my favorites here are the french bread and escargot

It was good. Old fashioned was average at best and the soufflé was wet and not done well. The entrees (duck and fish special) were delicious, and the escargot was really good. The French onion soup was also really good. Service was prompt.

I’ve had the same waiter the past couple times. Older gentleman with a mustache and spanish accent. Front part of the restaurant. The food is so good, everything is great. He just keeps making me feel dismissed and looks bothered when I asked questions. I just need to ask for a different waiter.

Our all time favorite restaurant in Dallas. Wait staff is incredibly nice and seem genuinely pleased that you are dining with them. Everyone from Giuliano, to Matt to Memo go out of their way to make certain that your dining experience is 5 star-without hovering over you. Food is first class. My wife and I love the moules and frites as it reminds of our time spent overseas. For Valentines we opted for the duck and were not disappointed. It was cooked to perfection. They also have a very nice, albeit limited, wine selection. The dry martini at the next table looked great and that patron confirmed that it was done perfectly to his request.
Parking can be tricky, but there is a valet service right across the street.
Would not recommend this place as we don't want word to get out that Toulouse is a great dining experience in every sense of the word.

Perhaps the best bouillabaisse I’ve had. Very good wine list. Excellent service. Only negative was their dog policy. After we ordered, a young woman came in with a large, poorly-trained dog and was seated two tables away. Welcoming dogs is surely a positive feature for some folks. Just not for me.

This is my favorite restaurant in Dallas. Lively , yet intimate conversation is easy . The decor is fresh and Old World at the same time it is as if you have suddenly been transported to a cafe in Paris. The staff goes above and beyond the usual service. The food is incredible . The presentation is as pretty as the food tastes. We always have a wonderful experience at Toulouse.
