The food has always been good. This was exceptional.
She had fish and I had the chicken. Incredible.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMHome RunEverything came together beautifully for dinner before the play. All dishes were excellent - flavorful, imaginative and fresh. Service was perfect - never lagging, never pushing. Pefect timing to get us to our next stop on time but not rushed. Our waiter even mentioned the prices of all the specials, including the regular Market Price fish dishes. Perhaps everyone was in top form because owner Chef Charles Clark was in the house, cooking and overseeing.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat appetizers, specialGreat appetizers, special fish dish and the veal cheeks.

I felt like a VIP even though I hadn't been there in a few years. I need to keep this place on my radar. Very impressed.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMa real treatexcellent variety, excellent food quality, and a very reasonable wine list.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to dinner with some workWent to dinner with some work colleagues. Everyone got a unique salad and entree and really enjoyed the tastes. I've been here a number of times and it is always very good and fit for foodies young and old. My only complaint would be the prices. They are a tad bit high and high enough where you remember the price as much as the quality of food. Having said that, it is still one of my top favorites in Houston and I will be back.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place use to be a "GoThis place use to be a "Go To" place for us. With so many new places and options,
somehow we forgot how good Ibiza was. One time back, and it was like coming home again.
Food was delicious, great service, and among the best wine prices in town.
We wont forget again.

I was surprised that we weren't offered a lunch menu since there is one posted online.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAbove the crowdAlways consistently good food and service
This is a great place to never be let down!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOften when a restaurant hasOften when a restaurant has been open for some years it begins to lose a step and become tired. Well, not this one. My wife and I popped in on a Sunday and the food and service were both excellent. Cooking a fish is a simple thing - but at its best it requires the fish be fresh and not smell of fish - it also requires that the fish not be over or under cooked. I had the snapper special and my wife had the colorado trout. They were both - perfect. This place can be very busy - especailly on weekends. I tend to be spontaneous (meaning disorganized) but this is a place it is worth reserving several days in advance.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat aplace to go for goodGreat aplace to go for good food and good wines that are reasonably prices.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is very good in aThe food is very good in a warm and friendly environment.

Lulu's kale salad is my favorite salad anywhere. Desert was perfect for sharing. Great service. This is our favorite restaurant in Houston.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently Outstanding!I am in Houston once a month with a group of colleagues and we always vote to go to Ibiza. The food, wine and service never disappoint. This time there were only 2 of us so we enjoyed very attentive personal service and great wine advice. Try the O'Brien Seduction, a great value and not available outside the Napa Winery. The Whole Market Fish stuffed with crab (this time a Branzini) was, as always, outstanding. The consistently high-quality experience at Ibiza makes it a welcome go-to restaurant. It's also nice to get out of that downtown core to a place that the locals obviously know and enjoy.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSharing...excellent!The food and service is exceptional. We often go to Ibiza prior to going to a show downtown and we have always found the servers to be very accommodating. My wife and I shared the "Whole Fish stuffed with crab". Not only was the fish excellent, simple yet filled with flavor, the mixed vegatables and the whipped cauliflower were very good (and I don't even like cauliflower typically). I highly recommend this restaurant as it is always enjoyable...good food....good wine and a great setting.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurantr was extremelyThe restaurantr was extremely busy early, with many people planning to attend the evening event at Toyota Center. the food was good and the service was as well. Casandra was our server, and started out a bit slow, but she caught on, and was very good delivering our food, and staying up on keeping our wine glasses full, and being attentive knowing we were going to the show.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was really good,The food was really good, but the service puts this place over the top!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMStill fantasticTook great friends here for birthday on recent Sat night. Was not disappointed. Ibiza is one of the rare places that can stay in top form year after year. The keys seems to be attentive management and a great chef. They also manage to keep menu fresh while maintaining certain solid dishes and a coherent theme. Really good hosts and servers too.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was AMAZING! TheThe food was AMAZING! The only negatives were no split checks and groups of 5 are considered large groups, so 20% tip was already added to total.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent, as always. I remainExcellent, as always. I remain a huge fan. Whoever decided to put the tuna and seaweed entree back on the menu literally answered a prayer. Well, not literally, but you get my point. Maybe me bugging my waiter about it every single frickin' time I went there over the past several years finally worked. Love the pequillo pepper/braised beef appetizer too. We went before a show at The Alley, and it works great for that. Conspicuously elderly crowd earlier in the evening. Curious. Still love the invariably smoking hot hostess concept. Whatever you do, don't stop doing that, or take the tuna/seaweed entree off the menu again.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGive your review a title (optional)Consistently outstanding cuisine and a great wine selection in Midtown/Downtown. It is always a good selection for pre-theater with their attentive service.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAll's Well at Ibiza'sThis was my first visit to Ibiza's and they delivered. Food is creative and well-prepared. Their special salads and desserts were worth the visit. Wedge a small plate in the mix and you have a top-notch and relatively inexpensive dinner. Wait service was not lacking even on a very busy evening. Waiter did admit they lack a full service bar which in Houston is a weakness. Easy to fix, I would believe. The restaurant is also maxed out on table space so limited elbow room. The outdoor dining even on a cool January evening, seemed inviting. I would return to Ibiza's.1/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
