    Very nice, with unusual dishes among the casual foods. A bit noisy, though. Quality was excellent. We went with friends, and everyone was happy.

    Ordered the fried chicken and egg waffle sandwich after hearing rave reviews. My food was burnt and cold at the same time. The waiter was never around and I had to physically get assistance from others to fix my order. I'm disappointed with my experience and probably won't go back, but maybe it was an off day. It is was pretty slow and there really should not have been an excuse for the poor service and food.

    We enjoyed our evening with friends, arrived at 8:30 and were seated inside after initially thinking we would like an outdoor seat. The host gladly made a quick change for us which we very much appreciated. Mussels, Goat Cheese w/Marinara, and Truffle Fries were excellent as was the signature pizza we ordered. Overall it was a nice evening, we will definitely return.

    I was looking for a fun place to sit and catch up with a friend. We wanted to stay a while-have dinner and enjoy a bottle of wine. I loved the area- our food was good. I wish I had not chosen the gluten free crust- I am sure the normal pizza is outstanding. I would go again and again. I am glad to have a new place for meeting.

    Thank God for Open Table. Making a reservation with OT was a breeze. The restaurant was totally full and the noise was above energetic. There would be not way to make a telephone reservation. Margarita Pizza was killer and the Cioppino style seafood rivals Scoma's in San Francisco. Even though the house was packed, the service was as if we were the only ones there. Nice job Al!

    Incredibly loud, even before the live music started up. Our table of 5 squeezed in to a table meant for 4 was literally shouting at each other to be heard. Food was OK but cheese plate had very small portions. We will not go again due to the noise level. It just wasn't great enough on any other aspect to counteract that.

    We visit Crisp twice a month for Brunch on Saturdays. The service is always great and you get a lot of food for the price. The pizzas are definitely made for 2-3 people and the chicken and waffles entry is huge. Due to Labor Day weekend, we decided to visit on Sunday instead. As an FYI, on Sundays, there is valet service, so be sure to bring some cash. There are lots of seating options both inside and outside. Definitely a place we will continue to patronize.

    Music was Too loud. Had to ask waitress to keep repeating herself even though we were in the far back corner booth it was too loud. Two orders of drunk chicken were dry and overcooked. My extra-large meatballs were over a serving of cold spaghetti. Very Disappointing to drive from North Houston for an inadequate meal

    Staff is exceptionally service oriented. As I waited for my party the hostess asked if I'd like anything to drink. When asked for pizza recommendations, server suggested several of her favorites. We choose two and we're pleased. The severs checked frequently to see how we were enjoying the food and asked if we needed anything. Very friendly.

    We met another couple here for a casual dinner on a well-appointed patio that made you smile just being there. The Dairymaid cheese and meat plates were exactly what we wanted over wine (surprising variety of wine) and the wait staff let us eat and chat without rushing us - so nice. We ordered a wide variety of dinners (pizza, salad, chick pea sandwich, ribs) and all were superb. I had the duck leg salad and the duck was seasoned so well, perfectly crisp and it just fell off the bone. The pizza rates with the best in the city. We left at 9:30 and the place was still packed with happy people. This was a meal worth our 20 minute drive from West U. Kudos Crisp - you have the perfect combo. Can you build it in West U please?

    Crisp had great food and ambiance. We reserved a table for 6 adults and a baby. However, when we arrived they sat us at a 5 top so we had to squeeze a baby and an adult on one side of the table (very cramped). By the time all the food arrived, there was hardly any room for everyone's food. Also, they didn't have enough change when we payed so instead of getting $11.25 back she just gave us $11.00. If every server did that (shorted customers a quarter), Crisp would make so much money (unfairly). Not a very good business strategy.

    We were a few minutes early for our reservation, yet were still seated immediately. Service was great. Pizza was very good, and the lamb bolognase was excellent. Only complaint is that this place is LOUD. I like "energetic" places, but it was so loud is was difficult to communicate with the person next to me.
