  • One of my best dining experiences

    I had never heard of this restaurant until I read a CultureMap article that mentioned it. The menu looked really interesting so I booked a reservation for Sunday brunch and arrived at 11am. The first thing I noticed - the restaurant is bright and airy with lots of natural light. Also, there were many service staff buzzing around making sure everything was just perfect. We were seated and waited on immediately. We started at the buffet bar (not your usual breakfast buffet bar) for "appetizers". The seafood campenchana was spectacular. I also really enjoyed the curried deviled eggs and tarragon chicken salad. I ordered the "Benedict Duo" for my entree. This dish is really two types of eggs benedict - one with a thin subtle tasso ham, and another with a perfectly-prepared crab cake and cajun sauce. Everything was seasoned and prepared perfectly. Fresh steamed vegetables completed the entree dish. The dessert bar offered approx. 10 different desserts. I sampled the Key LIme pie, Mango cheescake, Rasberry Anglefood layered cake, and Buttermilk pie. All were delicious. On a couple of occassions throughout my time here the restaurant manager stopped by to make sure everything was meeting my expectations. Only very well-managed restaurants do this. All in all, we had a perfect dining experience here. Kudos to all of the staff at this restaurant for getting everything exactly right. Perfect score !!

    We immediately loved the atmosphere. We heard great things about the food, so we were excited to finally dine here for lunch. The last time we showed up on a Monday. The food lived up to the hype with the exception of my hamburger which was delivered undercooked. It was disturbingly red. Our waitress Elizabeth had been very attentive up until the food was served, but it took us a while to get her attention. Someone came over and apologized for the error. Since I ordered from the three course lunch, I had no food in front of me while my four colleagues were eating. Two problems with this: I am the slowest eater and I'm starving. This slowed down the entire meal and our return to work. I asked for fries while I waited for the burger to return. The burger returned in the same bun that was a little hard by then but it was still good. The fries were perfect. To make up for the rare burger and delayed timing of the meal, they could have removed the charge for it or at the least the cost of the fries. The only reason I didn't give them a better service rating is because they missed an opportunity to make a great impression. I understand mistakes are made but they give you an opportunity to show your customers you care by going beyond the minimal expectation of just fixing your error. Instead of us discussing how good the rest of the meal was, we were discussing how no effort was made for redemption and the excessive cost for one scoop of ice cream. I will try it again.

    Waiter was excellent. His wine recommendation was great. Their specialty is the beef. I had a filet which was cooked perfectly and fork tender. The truffle fries are not to be missed. I would definitely return.

    My wife and I frequently visit the top restaurants in Houston and like to try new places. We found the food to be very average and well below average for the upper end pricing at 60 degrees. I had the "special" rib eye steak with bone marrow and my wife tried the beef tips. My steak was cooked exactly as ordered (med rare), however, the texture, taste and tenderness was about what you get when having a steak and egg breakfast at Denny's when on the road. The beef tips were also cooked to med rare and while the sauce had some flavor the two dishes were certainly not work the ~ $100 cost.

    Arrived to be seated next to a party of 12. Not crazy about that - can often be very noisy. FOH dealt with the situation poorly - offering patio seating (patio was empty and 54 degrees) as an alternative. Manager saw that FOH was dropping the ball - stepped in and very nicely got us a different table. For the rest of the evening could see him working the floor - observing everything and making sure all was good with everyone - thank you! Waiter was excellent, wine list is just right - not too long, lots of price points - something for everyone. Food was really excellent. If I was going to take someone out for a steak - this would be my first port of call.

    There were five of us. The pork belly app was too thick. The foie gras was average the Parmesan asparagas was very good. The asparagas soup was bland. Two of us had10 oz rib eyes ordered med rare. One was med the other med rare. It's difficult to cook a 1/2 inch steak med rare. Neither of us were impressed. The other three had filets perfect at 1 and 1/2 inch thick med rare. They said the best filet ever. We sat outside on a low humidity Cool evening very nice. The smashed potatoes divine, the brussel sprouts average and Mac and cheese below average. Service was very good. If I went back I would not get the ribeye not worth the price.

    We had high expectations of this restaurant but sorry we did. We were lucky to see our server when we did. He didn't seem to be around much. We had to ask another server to get him so we could get our bill. Also there was a lady there that was poured our wine. I'm guessing she was a hostess or a guest relations I don't know exactly but when she came to our table to she had this scowl on her face. You could immediately tell that she did not want to be at work. I understand we have all been there but at least don't let the patrons see it. They over cooked my duck but did remedy it by fixing another one but that one had chewy skin. It's suppose to be crispy at least that's what the menu said. The issues were somewhat address by I guess a manager. He apologized for poor service and the mediocre food. Overall we were really disappointed with this restaurant. We had high expectations due to knowing who the executive chef is. We will definitely not be going back.

    We really enjoyed sitting on the patio for Sunday Brunch, but could hardly hear our conversation. We even asked for the house music to be turned down when the band was on a break. The band was enjoyable, but were really more suited to an evening performance and not Sunday brunch. They kept wanting everyone to come up and dance. A nice (soft) jazz ensemble would have been much more enjoyable for a lazy brunch.

    There seemed to be people rushing about around us all evening. This had the effect of making us feel that we were in the middle of a busy traffic junction. We had asked for a table closer to the window/wall but were told it was reserved. An hour later it was still vacant. Too "busy" for my liking. I prefer to be relaxed in a calming atmosphere when eating out.

    I expected a noisy din I no experience with decent food. I found a moderate noise level with attentive servers and managers. I didn't quite know what to expect as there was no online menu to peruse prior to arrival. The server was helpful in explaining options and making recommendations. There was a variety to suit varied tastes. Meals were well prepared and tasty at a reasonable price. For those who enjoy outdoor dining, the patio provides outdoor seating just a few steps away from a great view of Westheimer.

    We had no idea what a wonderful dining experience we were about to have. Somehow, the work "mastercrafted" in the name made us think of beer! We had no idea that the word referred, instead, to the chef/owner who is a master chef! The food and service were exceptional. The owner/chef came by our table which was a nice, personal touch. We live in the neighborhood and eat out frequently. We will definitely be back, and already are looking forward to bringing our grown children who have a great selection of restaurants in Dallas. This one is a strong contender!

    It was a rainy Wednesday with a total of 10 customers for lunch. The chef/owner came out to see who was there and since no own seem important enough he walked back to the back. A good restaurateur would have come to each of the tables and thanked them for coming out in the rain and asked how they liked the food etc. Did not make me feel welcomed....and in Houston that is a deal breaker.

    We tried Sunday brunch with a party of 6 people, it was ok but not more. Ambiance: very noisy, the music was very loud, the ceiling does not absorbe the noise. It is not confortable. Food : The buffet was just OK, the eggs Benedict was not something to remember, the steak was very good, the others were average. Drink: The Bloody Mary was excellent Service: It was a slow start, the time for the waitress to wake up, but after the service was very good. In Houston, you will find a lot of better place for Brunch. In the past I was for lunch and it was very good, may be I was lucky, unfortunately I did not buy a lottery ticket.

    Service was tenuous and lame. Noise level made it difficult to talk across table and waiter. Food is over rated. Empty appetizer plate sat in from of me almost until I was ready to put it myself on the adjoining table. Large party in back added to the noise, no effort to close off, add this to way to loud thumping music and your brain is fried. Will not be back!!

    The table initially offered was by the kitchen - extra busy, noisy and a bit warm. After 15 minutes, we got a window table. I don't know whether it's a poorly designed a/c system, way too much humidity, but the vents drip condensate. A busboy came by every 20 minutes with a "mop" that would dry them temporarily after we got up from the table as the process rained down copious amounts of water. We selected from the Restaurant Weeks menu - otherwise my steak would have been $8/oz, 6 oz minimum. Others at our table were happy with their fish, but the steak was tough although tasty. When we ordered coffee after the meal (approx 8:15 pm) we were informed that they just realized they just realized they were out of milk & cream.
