La Table Chateau

Chic French fine dining in Houston's Galleria
Since debuting quietly in late 2015, La Table Château has established a solid reputation as one of Houston’s finest restaurants. Under the management of New York-based Invest Hospitality, Château consistently exceeds expectations in all the areas that count.

Sumptuous interiors worthy of a spread in a magazine put Château on the city’s top lists for best restaurant design. Service is provided with a gravitas that leans toward the formal while still being approachable.

The contemporary French fare is also a delight. Rooted in the classic technique, Gallic dishes such as the utterly sublime cheese soufflé or the seared foie gras are right on target. Extravagance is also encouraged with indulgences such as osetra caviar service and meat selections carved tableside.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • A captain is stationed at all times so that your needs are met with just the barest of glances or a flick of the hand. Orders are taken promptly and with a respectful formality that still feels friendly and approachable.
  • La Table Château’s menu is indeed contemporary French, but it is also health-minded and has a local Houston flair.
  • As you ascend the steps to the second floor, stunning bookcases featuring the works of luxury French publisher Assouline imbue the space with a dose of culture. All of this sets the stage for your arrival at La Table’s main dining room, Château.
Things to Know
  • Enjoy La Table Chateau’s French-American cuisine for lunch and dinner every day except Sunday (the restaurant is closed) as well as for Saturday brunch.

The Food
  • Overseen by executive chef Manuel Pucha, the lunch prix fixe spans items like creamy lobster bisque, yellowfin tuna Nicoise salad, and grilled chicken salad on toasted house brioche.
  • À la carte lunch selections might include the pan-seared Idaho rainbow trout, or a hearty steak frites au poivre.
  • Come dinnertime, the menu is expanded and much more lavish — it begs you to indulge. A raw bar section tempts with osetra caviar service, lobster and a seafood tower, while French classics like that caramelized cheese soufflé and seared foie gras are just as enticing.
  • Main dishes feature luxe ingredients. A poached lobster with vin d’Arbois and wasabi spinach is phenomenal; a Hudson Valley duck breast accompanied by seasonal fruits, baby turnips and a parsnip puree is just as memorable.
  • Tableside service for two (rib-eye, parmesan-crusted rack of lamb, or wild mushroom-stuffed whole roasted chicken) is a highlight of the dinner menu, as is the decadent but wholly delicious La Table grand chocolate soufflé for two.
The Design
  • Lavishly appointed, Château has the look and feel of an intimate, modern-day Parisian salon.
  • The room is all light grays and pale, silvery blues. Rich, velvety fabrics and carpet juxtaposed against linen-weave and leather-bound custom-designed chairs enhance the overall impression of understated elegance.
  • In the center of the room, Fabergé egg-shaped pendant lighting fixtures by industrial designer Matthew Shively are suspended at different heights so they form a canopy of glowing droplets.
  • There’s also an array of curved booths that are particularly pleasing to the eye. Set against the outer walls with windows overlooking the surrounding area, the booths are graceful yet functional, ideal for anyone looking for an intimate dining experience.
