Diner Reviews
  • "My mother and I came here for Houston Restaurant Weeks and we loved it. Out waiter was great and the food was awesome as well. We went during lunch time and there wasn't many people there but it was still nice. Warning: it's cost $8 to park in the parking-garage but the ARA validates"

  • "Had a great Valentine's day here. Special occasion had a limited menu, but very good. Wonderful live piano player. Coordinated in advance with the friendly hotel concierge who helped ensure that the flowers bought online made it to our table before we arrived. All went very smoothly."

  • "Great food, knowledgable and professional service. Unfortunately, at 3.5 hours for five course, the meal was waaay too long. This created a big problem for my elderly parents. The food was tempature appropriate, but 30-40 minutes between courses was just plain wrong. My take was the kitchen and not the wait staff was the problem."
