  • "i came for the restaurant week, the food is so impressive. Just like what the server said, they care about the quality more than the quantity. From the appetizer to the dessert, everything is delicious. The service is not bad, but they can provided a better one."

  • "Food was not that good, service was terrible and they incorrectly flagged gluten free on a meal that was clearly not gluten free. I would not go back. thanks!"

  • "Wait to take order was too long. Took 20 minutes to water. My husband and I went here for Houston Restaurant Week, but was told by waiter that they were not doing HRW. I overheard others with the same comments. Tables were so close together I had to scoot just to get to my seat. Food was okay. I ordered the Braised Short Ribs. The flavor was good, but there was 85% gristle with 15% meat. My husband had the steak and he was pleased with it. Dessert buffet had a lot of choices, but the pastries were stale, the bananas foster had been prepared in advance and were sitting in liquid. I may try again IF it were at a special HRW price as we originally thought, but not at their regular prices."

  • "I am Rather hard on resturants. Bit this one passed. Service is excellent.obvious management constant supervision. Brunch has a pre entray buffet table, ( samon, cheese, biscuts, olives, etc ) entrays seved at table, then desert another table. ( fix prex $39 & breverage per person. ) Live music, talented but loud !! Really to loud for a Sunday brunch. Brunch had several after church families, which means children. I enjoy children but not when buffet tables are in use. I observed one young lady touch every desert, ( even a finger poke into the cheese cake ) ending with one cookie. The dangers of buffet tables serving children with inattentive parents."

  • "Love, Love, Love this new hot spot!! It is a very chic, trendy, and hip atmosphere and the food did not disappoint. This restaurant is one of the few that offered 4 courses for HRW and each course was a work of art. Our waitress was very friendly and personable and really showcased her knowledge of the food. Oh, and the very best part was getting to meet Nell, co-owner of the restaurant! Nell is simply an amazing lady...very beautiful inside and out. She came over and talked to us like we were old friends of hers. She gave us the history of the restaurant, and when we were leaving...Nell gave us a tour of the outside patio and hugged us good bye!! Great food and Nell's hospitality...you can't beat it...see you again soon!"

  • "We brought our friends from out of town in for dinner Friday evening and being restaurateurs themselves, they were very impressed with the food, presentation, service and intrigued by the atmosphere and concept. We enjoy each and every time we dine here and as happy as we are that the menu is creative and changes seasonally, there are dishes that we miss because they were so yummy on a previous visit! Thanks for a lovely evening!"

  • "Our waiter was smug all thru dinner. The manager came by to pick up plates but never onced asked hows the food hows the service hows everything. Ive never had a manager not even apologize for the poor service and flat out lie to my face. Instead tries to compensate w how about I buy the table champagne. We didnt want anything free. That wasnt the intent of the complaint but for him to remediate the situation. Having worked in the industry before I tend to give slack on some things. However, our experience is beyond unacceptable and horrible. At least the valet folks are polite and nice."

  • "The food was good, not outstanding. The hostess was rude and abrupt. not welcoming which colored the whole experience. Parking was awful. There was not enough staff to accommodate the crowd, The valets left cars running with keys in cars and a/c running while they went around the building to park other cars, Cars waiting to be parked were left for 10 or more minutes and could have been stolen if any one had that intent. Both valets were not in the area as they were parking other cars."

  • "My husband had the strawberry moonshine and I had a pineapple citrus cocktail. Both were refreshing and superb. We had the smoked salmon appetizer and I highly recommend it. The burger was fantastic and not greasy. We also ordered sweet potato fries which were crisp and not overly fried. We tried the Creme brûlée and flambeed strawberries. I think the creme brûlée was the better as it was creamy and light. The strawberry dessert was akin to a shortcake flambeed. Very good just heavy after the meal."

  • "We invited business associates for dinner and realized once there that I made the reservation for the following week. Good grief! The manager and staff were very accommodating and found a great table for all of us to sit! The restaurant was very energetic and our waitress, Trinity, was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the food, even recommended a few dishes for us. The food was fabulous, I had the beef tips and I would highly recommend it!"

  • "Arrived 20 minutes early told table not ready but would be 5 minutes - went to bar to wait - 45 minutes have to remind hostess that we are still waiting - she said 5 min. We were in a back room that the noise level where we were assaulted by the noise level. Sitting was @ banquette where we were so close we could have shared plates. Impossible to have a conversation especially due yo another table - 3 tables away occupied by Rodney Daingerfield. Decided to make the best of it - waiter seemed to be 1st day on job - ordered a nice bottle of wine which after finishing 1st course reminded the waiter about the wine -oh he said. Wine finally came with 2nd course which after - the main course arrived which was sent back - YUK!!!!!!"

  • "Went for lunch during Houston Restaurant Weeks. The food was good but nothing special. The staff were not too excited to be helping us. I felt like they would all rather not be participating in HRW....so why do it? Pretty restaurant....nothing special regarding food. Probably won't be back. I will say though, if you go, the Strawberry Flambé (which was not flambé so not sure why they named it that) was my favorite part of the meal--not too sweet, nice herb flavor throughout the strawberries. Because of the indifference of the waitstaff, I can't imagine that I'll go back."

  • "We were seated in a back dining room. The tables were so close together that the waiters could not properly serve the food. They even put tables for 2 in the middle of the small room where everyone had to try and get past them in order to move in and out of the space. And the noise level was unreal - our 2 kids 23 and 26 walked out complaining how loud it was. All of this really took away from what would have been a wonderful meal if the setting had been a bit more diner friendly. I cannot be sure, but it did seem that the main dining room was much quieter when we emerged to leave!"

  • "Dined here twice for lunch (1) 10 coworkers and (2) Houston Restaurant Weeks. So impressed with everything - app/entrée/sides/dessert. Group split a 30oz steak and ordered entrees/salads/sides. For HRW, my friend and I split the burger and sea bass - delish! I highly recommend the onion rings (huge, served in a tower), brussels sprouts, & mac/cheese. While we were there, someone ordered the $100 burger (yes, you read that right!) and the staff made a big commotion - even rang the old western 'come to dinner' triangle bell. Restaurant is clean and modern, lots of service people and attention to detail. If I had one complaint, it would be the noise level, but that just says to me that it's a hot spot and people are excited to be there!"
    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "Food was really good, service was exceptional. Cool and fun vibe. It's was really loud and crowded, so it was difficult to maintain conversation across the large two-top table. Would definitely return to try the regular menu"
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "Table arrangement in the restaurant is weird....you are literally 3-5 inches away from the table next to you. Food & Service was GREAT!!! It was very loud and made it hard to hear the person across from you, which made you talk louder and in turn...it felt like the table next to me could hear us talking. No privacy!"

  • "each dish has a wonderful touch of genius--there is a young hip crowd here in this gorgeous building--worth every penny-they have a happy hour and Wednesday ladies special at the bar, but come for the food; it is beyond delicious. Have not had a bad bite so do not know what to recommend-hurry up before Restaurant weeks is over and taste a large selection...Highly recommend"

  • "A friend of mine and I decided to try 60 Degrees for lunch for Houston Restaurant Week. Valet-only parking was a real turn-off, especially when we had to wait 15 minutes to get our cars after a long lunch and trying to get back to the office. The food was tasty and offerings were unique, but I really did not appreciate the chef's/restaurant's "snub" when I was served my main course. The presentation consisted of small to medium burger placed all the way on the right of on an elongated rectangular plate, with an obvious void that shouted out "I am cheap and didn't order any accompaniments."(like fries we saw others were served), although I was never offered that option. Also, my burger was missing the tomato mentioned on the menu."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "We arrived at 60 Degrees Mastercrafted for lunch. We were shown to a table and given menu. A waiter approached and asked what we wanted to order. No do you have any questions about the menu, no would you like something to drink, nothing. Food was good but the waiter made the experience unpleasant. Even the valet parking attendant was very nice."

  • "The resturant is smaller than you'd expect, which equates to the perfect size. Food and services was outstanding. We will dine here again. Btw there is a $200 burger on the menu, I'm intrigued!"

  • "Visited this restaurant for lunch as a part of HRW. Parking is comp valet. The server was nice, knowledgeable and attentive, although it can be hard to hear with the noise of the restaurant. The tables are arranged close together, so this may not be the place if you are searching for a romatic or intimate setting without sharing conversation with those around you. The chilled starter soup was good, but I may try something else next time. The sea bass entree was fresh, cooked perfectly, and with excellent flavor. Also, the creme brulee dessert with the chocolate bar garish was marvelous! My only complaint at the end is that I wanted more! Bravo, 60 Degrees Mastercrafted, we plan to return for the brunch!"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "My friends and I went here for the first time as part of HRW for lunch and I have to say that all three of us were so impressed that we went back to the office and immediately made another reservation so that we could all go back next week to try what we didn't get to the first go round. For appetizers we had the smoked salmon (perfect combination of flavors on this one!) and the chopped salad. Our entrees were the sea bass and the akaushi burger, along with a side of sweet potato fries. Both were incredible, and I consider myself a burger and sweet potato fries connoisseur. For dessert, we had the pecan balls and cream brule, with the pecan balls (actually, it is ice cream wrapped in pecans atop fudge and cream) coming out of top."

  • "This was our first visit and we both loved it. We went during Houston Restaurant Weeks and got the 4 course set menu along with the wine paring. The wine and food pairing was spot on and the service was excellent. The second course was an heirloom tomato and watermelon salad. I was skeptical since I don't like watermelon, but was feeling adventurous and boy was I glad I did. It was delicious as was the rest of our choices. My husband and I got different items for each course so we could sample both. We'll definitely be back!"

  • "Dined on a Wednesday evening during Hosuton Resturant Weeks and had the HRW menue with wine paring. The 4 course meal was excellent but the activity and noise level were very high for mid week. Overall the service was good with some gaps on timing due to a very busy house. Conversation was difficult and the seating/tables were arranged very close together. This farm to table resturant is hitting on all cylinders for food quality and preperation. Would suggest some sound dampening wall and ceiling treatment to take the noise down and improve the accoustics for reasonable converstion."

  • "I have been to this restaurant plenty of times, but I was disappointed that when I try to impress a guest for lunch, the portion size (Sea Bass from the restaurant week menu) was completely disappointing. I always have reservations regarding restaurant week, b/c I feel restos don't put their best foot forward, therefore I typically order from the regular menu. If you are not going to offer your best... DON'T PARTICIPATE."

  • "A group of us went for HRW and we all agreed that it was the best food/experience in the years we have been going to HRWs! The service was great and the food was fantastic. While we were a group of 4, the only negative is 2-top tables are seated too close together - almost family style and we could hear people trying to talk over each other since they were seated so close together. Other than that the place is great."

  • "The food was great. Portion size was just right. The restaurant was incredibly loud and it was difficult to talk with my wife. Combined with extremely slow service it was frustrating to have limited conversation while waiting long periods between courses. For the price, I can't recommend it for a romantic dinner because it is simply too loud. The food was the redeeming element of the evening, but with the incredibly restaurant selection in Houston there are other places to go with better ambiance and excellent food at this price point."

  • "Master chef gitscner is worthy of a Michelin star if they gave them out in the US. Honestly one of the best meals ever. The chic restaurant has unbelievable food and great service-each course was special for all of our group. Master chef is the holy grail of chefs and he lives up to it-what a thrill for Houston to have a restaurant as good as the French Laundry and other iconic restaurants. The restaurant is filled with hip young attractive people and is obviously the place to go. The handsome minimal décor does not absorb much of the sound of happy diners-so book early of just go to enjoy the fabulous food and intelligent wine pairings. Glad we went restaurant week as we got to taste so many dishes-truly masterfully crafted."

  • "Went for restaurant week (lunch). The blackened sea bass was excellent! My chopped salad was a disappointment as it was just a bunch of ingredients throw in with a bit of dressing. It didn't do anything for me. Hobby's chilled curry soup was good. The creme brûlée was good, but the 'cake' under the strawberry Dessert was so dense but it takes a knife to cut. I would recommend the fish but not anything else."

They had a nice wine list, but we didn't have wine at lunch. My husband had the smoked salmon starter and the sea bass main course, both were excellent. I had the salad starter (good, but I wish I would have tried another starter~ something I would not make at home) and the chicken/pasta main course, it was excellent as well."
