    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.

    there was even music. They are aware it is too loud and working on it-the décor is fascinating. The buffet has a wide variety plus you have an entrée also. Devilled eggs are always a hit. This never disappoints as being a fabulous restaurant. Highly recommend for delicious food and an imaginative drinks list..

    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.

    Went for the first time during HRW. We were immediately put off by the attitude of the hostesses--who asked us to have a drink at the bar while the restaurant got ready to open. Two problems there: we were the FIRST diners in the restaurant and were there five minutes AFTER they are supposed to be open. 10 minutes later, they got their act together and seated about 8 tables of folks. Food was VERY good especially my lamb shoulder/merguez sausage entree. Too bad I can't order that dish if I were to go back since it's not on the regular menu. Nor for that matter was my wife's entree nor either of the starters that we ordered. Not sure I quite get that, but.... Wine list is diverse but VERY EXPENSIVE. Just 3 reds under $60.

    It was a little disappointing because I had such high expectations for 60 Degrees Mastercrafted. The food was delicious so I was very satisfied with that. The ambiance was highly disappointing. The dining room is extremely crowded, with tables literally stuffed as close as possible. This in turn made service a little awkward. I would recommend this place to my foodie friends but I am not sure I would return.

    Went for HRW menu. Overall food was ok, although I was not that impressed. I don't plan to come back any as there are better restaurants with a lot better food. On the positive side, the restaurant looks cute and has that hot spot feeling. On the negative side, too many tables very close to each other (to the point I felt my personal space was crossed), very noisy and front desk seemed slow, like stoned. The menu sounded better than it tasted or looked. The Cesar Salad was a JOKE (3 pieces of lettuce with a sprinkle of cheese). The portions were very small. I kinda regret to have chosen 60 degrees for HRW menu. Not my favorite.

    Entered with high hopes. Left with a headache. Very disappointed. Sat down and learned ac vent was dripping water, since it dropped on me. Mentioned to hostess, manager was bwsdue her. Neither apologized nor did they make an effort to ensure others did not sit on same seat. Tables very close. Sound reverberates due to design. Ordered HRW menu salmon good, fish needed seasoning, olive oil cake overly sweet and "buttery". Chef came out spoke to table beside us and then stood around. Guess he is not interested in speaking with guests.

    Location: Very good location Reception: Very good Ambiance; cosmopolitan Food: Appetizer “House smoking salmon” the smoked salmon was slice on thick side, it was a very good idea, tasted very good. Entree: Chicken Piccata, was cook perfectly with the right amount of sauce. Dessert: “White Chocolate crème Brule” and the “Cooked strawberry” very good. Service: Excellent Price: The lunch HRW was a bargain for the price. I will be back in September to check the Brunch and Dinner, it is a fact the price are not cheap out of HRW, but if the quality of brunch and dinner is as good as the HRW lunch, I think it will be a fair price. (I am not talking of the $ 200.00 hamburger it is only a gimmick)

    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 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!

    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!

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!!!!!!

    The valet car service was a disaster. The parking attendant dropped my car key in another customer's car. When I went for my car, the attendants could not find the key. The manager of the car service proceeded to look in every car so he said. After complaining to the restaurant manager, he came out. After 30 minutes, the manager of the car service asked if he could drive me to get a spare key. Luckily a customer who had left earlier than me called to report that they had found a set of car keys in their car. Because of this fiasco I had to cancel and pay for a previously scheduled appointment. The restaurant manager apologized and said they would be sending me something in the mail. After a week I have received nothing. LOUSY SERVICE!

    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!
