Houston Press' Description

This small French bistro tucked into a strip center in the Heights is charming and relaxed, but also a bit idiosyncratic. All of the dishes are traditional French fare without any modernization, but some of them, unfortunately, rely upon canned or frozen ingredients. Others, like the Camembert, are some of the best available in Houston. Chef/owner Philippe Harel works in the restaurant with his wife, Béline, and son, Romain, which gives it the feel of an old-fashioned mom-and-pop cafe. The wine list is great and the crêpes are Harel's specialty. He clearly knows how to make French food, and if he just starts focusing on sourcing the best ingredients and perfecting several solid dishes, this new restaurant could become an old favorite.

    Salé Sucré is located on a particularly unattractive span of White Oak in a small, generic strip center just off Studewood not far from I-10 but you'll see the restaurant's glow before you even enter. And once in, you will be quickly enveloped by a welcoming, warm sensibility.

    There aren't any other places in the nearby area that offer such nuanced French bistro fare. This... More >>

Tips from foursquare

  • Grant M. on 11/27/13

    The pate and crepes were excellent but the service was terrible. My wife and I were the only two people in the restaurant and they forgot her wine, the forgot my fries.

  • Cooper K. on 08/08/13

    Fun contemporary open atmosphere. Service very French - slow, but food quite tasty and reasonably priced. Best dessert Nutella crepe

  • Rose F. on 02/16/13

    They make substitutions to the dishes without warning. Also, it takes a very long time for entrees to come out.

  • Sarah D. on 09/12/12

    Mussels left something to be desired, will be back but I think I will go for one of the crepes next time.

  • Gretchen L. on 06/22/12

    The Cote d'Azure salad is plenty for two to share, and very tasty, too.
