    Recommended by a co-worker and did not disappoint. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. They were able to make adjustments to the mac & cheese to cater to my son's request, a true testament to their customer service. We will definitely be back again.

    This was my 2nd time dining at Mr. Peeple's. This time was not nearly as enjoyable as the first. I dined with two friends. Several of the dishes, lobster and crab bisque, mushroom risotto, mac and cheese, were very dense and heavy laden. There should be a creaminess to each of those dishes and it was not present. One of my friends ordered the Snapper and it was cooked much too long. She ate around it. Both friends ordered the carrot cake and it came out warm which was off-putting. We loved the ambiance and were surprised more people weren't there but then after we ate we understood why. We have not given up and will give it another chance.

    The food was really delicious & pipping hot! I ordered the snapper on a bed of sautéed vegetables. Even though, I'm not heavy on Brussels sprouts, they were very tasty. My husband ended up getting one of the specials with Koby steak; it was good but not $70 worth. I would suggest asking for special prices. But food excellent other than that price.

    I took my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner and the service was amazing. I'm a fitness competitor so I'm limited to what I can eat, basically I just wanted to get grilled chicken breast and veggies. I called ahead and asked if they could modify their pistachio chicken dish to just make it without pistachio's and I was told it should not be a problem. Once we arrived and were seated my waitress already knew my special request from the menu and was very nice about it. My boyfriend also enjoyed his meal which was the lobster risotto and they provided complimentary dessert for his birthday. We both enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service!!

    When we first walked in to the restaurant, the vibrant colors and decorations took us by surprise, but not in a bad way. As we walked to our table we noticed most of the other tables were occupied by groups for 5 of more. While we were expecting the dinner menu, because of the hour, 3:45, and day, Sunday, we were brought the brunch menu. The biscuits and blueberry muffins were absolutely delicious and the strawberry fluff was a great addition. The brunch was the standard fair and was average.

    My dad and I went to dinner for Houston Restaurant Week. The selections on the menu were great and we sampled awesome dishes. The space is great for a date night with your special someone or somewhere for you and your family or friends to celebrate a special event. We enjoyed the food and our waiter Cameron was very attentive. I am not a wine connoisseur, but he gave me a great recommendation and I enjoyed my selection. I have told everyone with an ear about my experience and encouraged them to try it as well. We will definitely visit again.

    I booked a table for 6 for Houston Restaurant Week for my meetup group. We ended up with a larger number or RSVP's than expected so we ended up with 8 people sitting at one table, and the other 7 in my party decided to eat at the bar. The restaurant staff was very accommodating, the food was great, and all was well. The party of 7 at one table got their checks split, paid and left happy. The table of 8 however was shocked that the manager refused to split checks, was rude, yelling, and threatened to call the police. Why one table was allowed to split checks and the other wasn't I have no idea, and why the manager who was so helpful before was so incredibly rude all of a sudden, I don't know, but we won't be returning, and that's a shame.

    I was here for restaurant week. The food was excellent. the restaurant is high class and very well decorated. My only problem was our waiter, it was obviously not his day and it showed during our meal. He couldn't care less about us. He would just walk by our table time after time and not even give us a look. Only after we insisted, we could order our food. The rest of the staff was great. I would definitely go back again. just hope we get a different waiter.

    The décor is great, food was so-so but I also went during HRW so it is worth a shot for me to try it again when the menu is pre-selected. The server was very weird. He made my client very uncomfortable, which made the business meeting and dining experience go south. I will try the restaurant again, with hopefully a different waiter.

    My sister and I ate at Mr. Peeples during Houston Restaurant Weeks. I hate to be harsh in these reviews, but Mr. Peeples is basically a cruise ship on land. Cheesy atmosphere and mediocre food in my opinion. We also had a reservation and weren't seated until almost an hour after our reservation time (my pet peeve). Also $8 required valet annoys. Upsides were the restaurant week menu was appealing and the service was good.

    We had dinner during restaurant "week" so it may not be entirely representative. It was also our first time visiting Mr. Peeples. However, we found the food to be excellent, the service quick, responsive, and professional (although a bit familiar for our taste) and the restaurant to be interesting and fun. We enjoyed the restaurant week menu and augmented it with some items off the regular menu. We had both steak and seafood and both were high quality and prepared very well. The fried brussels sprouts and carrot cake "twinkies" were stand-outs. All in all, a very good experience. I would definitely go back.

    It wasn't BAD, it just wasn't good. The decor was flashy, but cheap. For example: the lighting had plastic accents instead of crystal or glass. I commend the apparent effort, it's just unfortunate the effort fell so far short. If the food was awesome, the surroundings wouldn't have mattered. But the food rated from only from "passable" to "good at best."

    The food was ehhh, service was pretty dismal. It took a very long time to get drinks and between each course. The waiter acted like we were a burden to him for being there. For the price, I would expect a restaurant to have outstanding service and they just dont. Also valet was $8 and they didnt even walk up to my car... I just self parked and then had to pay $8. I wont be going back and will recommend to my friends who have been wanting to check it out, not to bother.

    I went to this restaurant in the hope that I had found a new place for our group to add to our rotation. I thought the food I had was good, but I was disappointed in the size of some of the portions. We ordered from the HRW menu. The crab cakeS(plural) were more like a crab cake bite! The entrees seemed normal size and were very tasty. Dessert also was just a tease. I had a sliver of cheesecake--so thin it could hardly stand up. I suppose this was due to ordering from the HRW menu, but I was checking the place for a regular dining spot & would be embarrassed to take someone there & have the tiny offerings served. We have visited several restaurants during HRW & this is the only place that we felt discriminated about the menu.

    I passed by Mr. Peeples several times and finally decided to try it during Houston Restaurant Weeks. Love the décor! The steak was the perfect size and it was tender and juicy with excellent flavor. I'd rate it as one of the best ever. My friend had the crab cake and salmon and also said they were much better than most. Dessert was good but not so great that I am raving about it. The chocolate crunch cake didn't have any crunch and only one raspberry. I already went back for lunch and was just as happy with the pork chop. During dinner the waiter could have been a little warmer before it was time for us to leave a tip. Overall great meal.

    This was my third visit to this restaurant, first time for brunch. The experience was very pleasant. Food/Service/Ambience all very good. Three small drawbacks that are a bit irritating...they wont seat an incomplete party, the music was so loud at the hostess check-in making it difficult to hear or speak and the chair/booth table combo make it feel like a lower scale restaurant instead of 4 stars with little privacy.
