This is a 5 Star experience by a French trained chef in a small town in the Texas Hill Country. Reservations are required and they fill up quickly. They are only open for Lunch and Dinner on Saturday and for special occasions. The food, service, ambience, and setting are idyllic. There is a special dining room in a Tree House... More

Laurel Tree Restaurant was a very nice surprise offering much more than we expected. The service was very friendly and professional. The atmosphere was romantically cozy. The set meal was delicious. Never thought we would find an establishment like this in Utopia, TX!

There are 2 meal options. Our choices were beef or fish. Both were well prepared. Each course was served hot and everyone... More

A great little gourmet restaurant in a field of old live oaks that is a secret of locals near and far. Only open on Saturdays, so reservations are a must. Bring your favorite bottle of wine, it's in a dry county and be prepared for multi-course meal and be sure to save room for a fabulous desert. The menu changes... More

Happened upon this place totally by accident surfing the web for things to do! We made reservations for lunch and would love to try dinner. It is great for something special! The restaurant is just adorable!

For a two-hour round trip drive, this restaurant disappointed. The entree choices were pulled pork on half a baked-potato, and a crab cake, both of which I can easily make in my own kitchen. Especially because we brought long-time friends who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, we had hoped for something a little more special. The venue is very... More
