Feast reviews from OpenTable diners
- MehOpenTable Diner Since 2012VIPDined on 6/14/2013I went to their final feast hoping for a last service hurrah or something. But I just ended up leaving unsatisfied, thanks to the attitude of the waitress who could care less since she was about to become unemployed, mediocre food, and a pretty not Feast-like menu that featured mostly pork. Pretty sure I could get similar stuff at Olive Garden. Meh...Special Features:
- Have heard such good things,brickerDined on 6/12/2013Have heard such good things, so wanted to try it before it closed. We were not impressed. Each item we ordered was out in less than 5 minutes, which led us to believe it was all pre-made and heated in a microwave. Tartare was bland, as were both our entrees. The bread app was good, as was the molten chocolate dessert, although they were not great.
- Out with a BANG!AnneMarieVIPDined on 6/7/2013Wish things could have worked out differently for FEAST - and the lovely chef/owners/staff! We enjoyed the meal, the outstanding service - the "daring" menu (at least for me!) Who else in Houston will serve us Beef Heart Tartar in a way that we will LOVE it! I enjoyed many dishes - but clearly not enough! Your presence will be missed - your impact never lost! Thank you FEAST!Special Features:
- Excellent mainsOpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 6/7/2013My husband and I ate here in Saturday Friday night. We had to byob as the restaurant is closing and it no longer had a license. Our food arrived in good time and was presented very well. The starters were okay, but the mains were excellent. I had shoulder of pork and my husband pork belly. The meat was divine, presented well and the portion was massive. Unfortunely we can't go again, but if I did I would skip the starters and enjoy the main.Special Features:
- Last Great Meal Before They Closemaroondawg67Dined on 6/7/2013We made a special trip to downtown Houston to have one last meal at one of our favorite restaurants before they close their doors. Its sad to see them go but we wish James, Meagan & Richard all the best. My wife started with the house night special lamb & beef terrine and I had one of my favorites there the Coquilles St. Jacques. We both had the nightly special of lamb shank with roasted potatoes and kale. Everything, as usual, was excellent. I even had to have an extra helping of their homemade bread to sop up the delicious cream sauce after my scallops were gone. We split a Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert.Special Features:
- Support FEAST before they close!OpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 6/3/2013Unfortunate for the Houston food scene, Feast is shutting it's doors on June 14th. Please go eat at the place that first put Houston on the map for nose-to-tail farm-to-table dining. You will leave as sad as we did that the tastiness that is Feast is finally coming to an end.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great experienceMarkDined on 6/1/2013Amazing food, great service. Heard they were cliosing soon so i got in there to ear. Want to go back again before they close permanently.Special Features:
- Good food; casual atmosphereOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 6/1/2013Feast has wonderful food; the Lamb shank and Fish & Scallop pie were great. Please note however that the place is quiet rustic and casual.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Shame it's closingOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 5/27/2013Nice meal. Their chicken onion was a little disappointing as it was just warm in the middle and the skin was not crispy, but we were really hungry, so tucked in. My wife had pork belly and it was fantastic. I had the fish and scallop pie, which needed a lot of seasoning. Sides of fried egg with fried bread, and bubble and squeak were very good. No room at all for desert. Would go back.Special Features:
- Feast, I'm going to miss you.KelleyDined on 5/26/2013I enjoyed ever second of my dinner at Feast. It was one of the most memorable meals of my life. This place will definitely be missed in Houston. We had a group of 6 and ordered several appetizers to taste... all were amazing. We had the scallops, pork fat on toast with fried egg, and the beef heart tartare. I have to admit, the tartare was a bit of a risk but so worth it! Very flavorful. Would recommend if you are feeling adventurous. I had the fish and scallop pie which was like a mix between a seafood pot pie and a potato soup. Grouper, Chicken, and Pork Belly entrees were at the table as well and all were so amazing. You can't go wrong with this place. If you love food, you MUST eat here before they close the doors in June.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Anniversary dinner at FeastWeeechDined on 5/26/2013The food was great but the noise level made it a tad difficult to hold on a conversation at times. The waitress was a little rude at first (possibly because my wife and I are a young couple) until we ordered multiple items on the menu. I dont feel the restaurant met up to all the hype. Definitely dont feel as though it is one of the most romantic resturants in houston due to the noise level. It was a good expedience but we could have spent our first anniversary at better.Special Features:
- Casual diningfoodfanDined on 5/26/2013A little more casual than expected, but the food was good. Not a special occasion place. Not accessible for disabled people, as I was in a heavy boot cast. Stairs were hard to navigate and there was no ramp. Since they are closing soon doesn't matter much, so wont' be back.Special Features:
- While the grouper head appetizerAgbackerVIPDined on 5/24/2013While the grouper head appetizer at the next table was somewhat unsettling, my pork shoulder and grilled polenta was truly a work of art. Our group was impressed all around. SO glad we got to try it before it shutters in a few weeks.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Superb treatment of the unusualOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 5/24/2013Sadly, this was my first visit. I hate that they're closing, as I would become a regular. Everything was excellent from the cocktails to the bread, to the starters to the main course. Server was gracious and helpful, also very knowledgeable about each item. Loved the fresh vegetablesSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice for a one time experiencetawnie74Dined on 5/24/2013Unless you love organ meats and fish heads, this is the kind of place you try once for the experience. The dishes were well prepared and portion sizes were good, but again, unless you are a fan of sheep pancreatics, you may want to steer elsewhere.Special Features:
- very goodmichaelDined on 5/18/2013i would have licked the bowl clean if i were at home.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delicious, locally-sourced food.JeffDined on 5/17/2013I didn't grow up eating organ meats, but Feast could definitely change my mind about the whole idea. Beef heart tartare: amazing. My beef tongue main and my wife's steak and kidney pie were outstanding. Friendly service, and the price is just about right.Special Features:
- Most Unique Menu in HoustonCeeBeeDined on 5/16/2013Feast led the trend in Houston of the farm-to-table movement; now every good restaurant seems to be following. But Feast has a menu with a British slant you won't find anywhere else, and it's executed brilliantly. If you want to experience Feast, hurry, because unless something changes, I've heard Feast will close, late summer, 2013, and it will be a loss to the Houston food scene.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Sad to say goodbyeOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 5/15/2013Feast is the kind of place that keeps Houston as wonderful as it is. I'm going to miss Feast and I wish the crew all the best. Cheers! (If you're unfamiliar, Feast is shutting its doors by 6/14. Get there before this happens!)Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Sad see it go!OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 5/8/2013It's closing it's doors in August :( but has always been delicious from app to desserts ;(Special Features:
- Awesomely deliciousOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 5/4/2013This is excellent food, unpretentious and incredibly delicious. Yes, it does take the St John philosophy of nose to tail eating, but it is more than a concept - the food was exceedingly satisfying. You know when you're eating good food - your tongue identifies joy & happiness - and the sauces, so full of flavor, are a class above other fine-dining restaurants. I am now searching for those hard-to-get cuts so that I won't have withdrawal symptoms if Feast closes!Special Features:
- I love this place!OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 5/4/2013I've been at Feast twice and I absolutely loved it. The food is delicious, service is great, prices are reasonable and the ambience is excellent. My friends and I had a brilliant evening at this restaurant.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Lovely EveningsegoviaDined on 5/3/2013I love Feast. The food was delicious and the atmosphere so cozy and intimate.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- It's closed and will be missedOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 4/28/2013What a great turn out for their last week on a Wednesday! It was b.y.o.b and great from apps to dessert.Special Features:
- Good cocktails. Our scallopOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 4/27/2013Good cocktails. Our scallop lover loved the Scallops St. Jacques appetizer; the other not so much. The beef shoulder was not available for an 8 pm seating. The waitress recommended the pork shoulder instead, which was very nice. Highly recommend it. The coq au vin was also very good. The toffee pudding was a nice way to complete the meal. Cozy, but dim lighting and noisy. Surprised that the restaurant closes early. We were the only guests left when our meal finished close to 10 pm.Special Features:
- Awesome Houston Restaurant!OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 4/27/2013Awesome Houston Restaurant! Totally would go back.Special Features:
- A lovely gem for modern Britishshadow2451Dined on 4/27/2013A lovely gem for modern British fare - imaginative menu, attentive staff, and a old-world atmosphere. The house-cured ham is not to be missed.Special Features:
- Good but not Love!OpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 4/26/2013This is the 2nd time we have been to Feast and it was good. But we just feel like we want it to be more than it is both times we have gone and we want to love it each time we walk out! It is a great place overall and it will be missed in the Houston food scene if they do really close this year!Special Features:
- Service and food was perfect.geoboy4uDined on 4/26/2013Service and food was perfect. Waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable.. I have added this place to my list of favorites. Parking stinks - breakdown and give it to the valet. My friend tried to park in the empty lot across street, where he was chased down within minutes.Special Features:
- Alas, Feast is No MoremrsmartguyVIPDined on 4/24/2013We went to Feast during their last week of service. It had been one of our favorites ever since we moved to Houston 3 years ago. We will miss the sticky toffee pudding and the bubble & squeak immensely. It's a terrible loss for Houston, but I guess we'll always have our delicious memories. (I hear the owners are moving to Brooklyn. We lived in Williamsburg for 6 years, and I have to say leaving Houston right now for NYC is a big mistake! Seriously.)Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food, good wineOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 4/19/2013Good food and good wine made for a good evening with a friend from out of town that I had not seen in a while. We were impressed with the menu and the waiter suggested a great wine for our meal. We'll definitely be back!Special Features:
- FEAST fit for a King and QueenOpenTable Diner Since 2013VIPDined on 4/19/2013An excellent overall dining experience. Great food and service.Special Features:
- I had read quite a bit aboutOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 4/13/2013I had read quite a bit about this restaurant and their take on English pub/country fare. Perhaps it was not a good night or maybe I ordered the wrong thing, but I was not as impressed as I had hoped to be. We took friends from out of town and they were also not as impressed as the critics. My Bordeaux by the glass was served in a water glass and was almost warm. I ordered a dish featuring pork belly, but the very generous portion I received had practically no meat on either piece. I realize that pork belly is supposed to be heavily marbled and contain a lot fat, but this was all fat on one piece and almost all fat on the other piece. What was there was tasty, but I had to fill up on mashed potatoes. Not impressed.Special Features:
- Fabulous French foodOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 4/4/2013Our meal was traditional French fare. If you are watching you waist line or get squeamish at the mention of liver and tongue on the menu don't bother. We ordered the scallops, and wished we had saved the bread to slurp up the melted cheese. Our main was the beef neck and calves liver with bacon. Both were outstanding. Save room for desserts, they were also stellar.Special Features:
- A unique dining experienceOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 3/31/2013A unique dining experience in which all should partake.Special Features:
- I have to say that I was aBDMaustinVIPDined on 3/30/2013I have to say that I was a little disappointed in my experience especially with all the hype and anticipation. Nothing was bad, but nothing was great either. What really distracted from the evening was loudness of the dining room and the restaurant is in a small house. The waiter had to say everything twice, not just to us, but to all the tables I observed. I have been in a lot of restaurants that were measured to be as loud as an airplane landing, but this ranks with the loudest. The staff was not your typical Houston friendly; I had to engage them to make them smile. The menu was varied and unique, but it just did not seem to fit with the environment and aura of the experience. They are closing in August and have lost their mojo.Special Features:
- Basic, good, fresh food inOpenTable Diner Since 2004Dined on 3/23/2013Basic, good, fresh food in a casual European setting. Given the flexibility of the menu, I was a bit surprised at the mumber of heavy and hearty items, expected some lighter spring fare.Special Features:
- If you are hungry and lookingOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 3/22/2013If you are hungry and looking for something different and hearty in a nice setting this restaurant cannot be beat.Special Features:
- Used to be an exciting andGerardVIPDined on 3/20/2013Used to be an exciting and novel restaurant in Houston, but lately has been serving sloppy, over-sized, under-seasoned/over-seasoned food (depending on what you order). I ordered a fino sherry, but the server brought me a sticky-sweet one instead. First time in a while I had to send back a drink.I heard the restaurant will be closing in August. I wouldn't mind if it closes in April.
- This is a really fun changeRRHoustonVIPDined on 3/16/2013This is a really fun change from your average Houston restaurant. The food was interesting and well prepared. Hearty food made from odd parts of animals. The service was marginal. Probably the best decaf coffee I have had--made in a french press. Yum.
