Timeless French Dining
EExperience fine French cuisine in the heart of the Lone Star State with an a la carte menu from our talented culinary team.
The French Room has endured the test of time for more than a century and established its place as a culinary destination. Traditionally known as an exciting, awe-inspiring exploration of culinary and service excellence, The French Room has remained meaningful by realizing the perfect time to evolve – all the while – remaining true to its core. The French Room evolution is marked by the progressive discovery of a layered, storied past and celebration of life through food & drink.
A timeless and true delivery of convivial Texas hospitality, the new menu is diverse and although a departure from the tasting menu, the new a la carte menu allows our guests to experience The French Room differently at every visit.
Though The French Room is open only for dinner, guests can enjoy weekend afternoon tea in the dining room. Enjoy premium Zakti loose leaf teas, wines by the glass and a menu of refined finger sandwiches, scones and other sweets.
The French Room has endured the test of time for more than a century and will continue to do so when we re-open for reservations beginning October 4 for future dates including our storied holiday Tea at The Adolphus. As we are sad to still be temporarily closed, we are working hard behind the scenes perfecting our craft and we look forward to serving you again soon! à bientôt.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon tea service. The setting was beautiful and the service was wonderful.
We went with a community style dinner as part of a business event, and all the food right from the appetizers like the wagyu beef to the sumptuous lamb shank and variety of delicious salads, was amazing!
