I saw a customer come in in shorts and a tee shirt. That's a little too casual for this type of restaurant.

Sauce on ribeye and fillet of beef too dominant. Fillet of beef was mushy.

The service was friendly & courteous. However, it took a long time for the waitress to cover all her tables & check on us. It seems like they were understaffed. Waitress was very polite. The hostess was very friendly & accomodating.

From Our Editors

Nearly 30 years ago, chef Alex Brennan-Martin was a student at Ecole de Cuisine La Varenne in Paris. He frequented the city's cafés, drawing inspiration from their quaint atmospheres. Blending his memories of these neighborhood meeting places with his Southern upbringing, he founded Bistro Alex, where he designs seasonal menus of creole- and French-inspired cuisine.

Alex and his culinary team use local ingredients whenever possible, building dishes from Louisiana turtles, local Texas pork, red snapper, and strawberries; harvesting oysters from a nearby port; and only culling cheese from earth’s closest moon. They also apply a DIY approach to the dishes' basic elements, making their own tasso ham, andouille sausage, mustard, and meat stocks in house, as well as carving their own charcuterie meats. An on-staff pastry chef devises all desserts, such as white-chocolate bread pudding and peanut-butter chocolate mousse.

Cuisine aside, the beautiful dining room warrants patrons’ admiration on its own. Real mesquite tree planks form select walls and portions of the ceiling, lending guests a feeling of being tucked inside a treehouse—albeit an elegant treehouse with plenty of wine. Airy drapes, curvaceous chairs, and modern jazz melodies anchor the environment in sophistication. Additionally, complimentary parking is available to patrons for ease of visiting.
