Named affectionately after executive chef Drake Leonards’ South Louisiana hometown, Eunice offers a modern Cajun-Creole brasserie-style menu inspired by the flavors of his childhood.

The seasonally-inspired menus marry European influences with the ingredients and foodways of the Gulf Coast. Enjoy the dining experience inside at the bar, at a table along the floor to ceiling windows, or outside on our patio.

We offer happy hour every day from 3 pm to 6 pm including 75 cent oysters, half off snacks, beer, specialty cocktails, and house wines by the glass.

    Gulf fish was great. other dishes like beet salad and fried quail were average. Burrata was great but I did pay $18 for something fairly simple.

    We had a 5:30 pm reservation on the outside patio. The weather was perfect for outside dining, and the food was delicious. The patio was peaceful and quiet and tree-shaded in the late afternoon. It was a very enjoyable experience.

    1st course items were not brought out at same time- so one persons gumbo got cold while he politely waited for others to be served. Remoulade was a bit watery. Fish was very good. A patron whose “posh” car was parked at the front door, and who made sure everyone knew it was hers, got in the car and beached on the sidewalk curb! Not one valet went to see if they were OK. They just stood there and starred. Clearly the woman should not have been driving. Perhaps the valet should have suggested UBER.

    Wonderful dining experience! We celebrated two birthdays and the food was absolutely outstanding! Tables set far enough apart that it is comfortable yet still feels cozy. We had oysters, the cornbread, shrimp étouffée, and shrimp and grits. All was delicious but I have to say the cornbread was truly out of this world! We will definitely be back soon!!!

    The food and service was excellent, the only reason for giving 4 stars instead of 5 was that my order came with only 1 crabcake, and for a $36 large plate I was expecting 2 crabcakes.

    The saltiness of the food was beyond anything I’ve ever experienced at a fine dining establishment. I had to send my spinach back as it was inedible. We took gumbo home to a family member and that was overly salty as well. Our server was over extended between two rooms, too many tables, and we waited far too long for our bill to arrive and for the credit card to be run through.

    Eunice does nice drink and wine pours unlike some other places. Had the delicious beet salad and gulf fish. Disappointed in the East Coast oysters. They tasted alright but at $22 for a half-dozen, 3 of them were barely there. Literally the size and thickness of a dime towards a nickel. Service and ambiance is always good at Eunice.

    If there was a way to add baffles/noise reduction measures, this restaurant would rank number one in our choices. Also, the sun is a nuisance factor during happy hour -- maybe some additional shades could be added?

    Beautiful room with a view of the kitchen and bar. Oysters two ways: cornmeal dusted fried & stuffed with cornbread/shrimp--both excellent. Shrimp & grits was exceptional and very generous portion. The duck had good flavor but may have been a bit overcooked. Nice wine list with a bit of everything--I settled on a really nice Puligny-Montrachet. Professional staff, great service. Definitely a winner.

    Greeted very graciously. Other restaurants should take note. The manager always stops by the table and seems alert to what’s going on in his restaurant. I’m not a fan of Creole of Cajun, but there are plenty of great options. The mahi mahi was out of this world. Cocktails are a treat here. Service is excellent and the price point is reasonable. Have tried the bread pudding and chocolate cake, and both were just okay. Everything else was wonderful, though! Highly recommend!

    My nieces and nephew made it into town and I chose Eunice to have dinner since we all hail from Louisiana originally. Eunice is perfectly located and was the only restaurant out of several, that could accommodate more than six people. I have never had a bad drink nor a bad meal at Happy Hour or Dinner at Eunice. Your Happy Hours are one of the best in Houston. The service was impeccable and the food was a great take on all those items we are familiar with from back home. I had a wonderful time with family at your establishment and my niece decided that she loves duck, because your duck was superb. It was a happy night that ended with empty plates and full bellies! C’est Bon!
