  • Bad Experience
    BacheloretteParty
    Dined on 8/17/2013
    We called ahead to make a reservation and we were told that our table would be $100 plus $20 per person for the minimum on food and drinks ($20 * 6 = $120) and my charged was ran for $220. By the end of the night after we ordered as close to $20 a person as possible, our bill was brought back with an amount far over that. The "$20 minimum" I was told I was charged for initially was a "seat charge" on top of our $100 table. Did NOT find that out until after the fact. They should have held up their end of the deal based on what they told me over the phone. The miscommunication was the fault of the Prohibition receptionist and the manager was not interested in keeping his customers happy. We will never return to this restaurant.

    A unique opportunity to have a lite dinner and catch a live show. Great for a different type of date night. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturday evenings. Be sure to make reservations. I'll be going back often.

    The show was average, the service was outstanding, great customer service. The food was not what expected and I didn't like how you had to spend min 20 on food and drinks, when the food was not worth the price, and you just paid 20 a head for the show. If you like to drink this is the place. But overall I probably will never go again, wasn't really impressed.

    No servers during happy hour. We arrived early for dinner and were told that there would be no servers, that we would have to go order at the bar. Bartender was great, good strong drinks. This place seems good for groups, but not for any type of romantic celebration. Dinner menu was slim, but appetizer was good. We left without ordering dinner. Can't say I was impressed.

    I thought it was just a night club, but realized they serve food. The menu is not typical bar food however. I was impressed actually. I would recommend it for lunch and dinner.

    We had a nice time. My Mom loved the pianist and we had a lovely table next to him. Though it wasn't very crowded or really even half full, we still enjoyed the atmoshphere. We can't wait to come back at night. Picky eaters won't have a lot to choose from on the food menu - the buffalo burger was good for mine (husband). The pulled pork tacos were great! The delightful twists on the mimosa's were soooo delicious - wanted to try all of them! I do wish they would've clarified that "free mimosas for Mothers" meant only your first one...since they were so great, I can let that slide. We'll be back - but in the evening for drinks and a show!

    I very much enjoyed the show and the atmosphere. Although I was very disappointed with the service and food. It took 35 minutes to get our first drinks; then our food came out about 30 minutes later but not all together. My spouse steak was served then it took 20 minutes before my salad came another 5 minutes for my friends salad then 15 additional minutes for my other guests shrimp dish to come. The server was very friendly and positive but something was not right either it was the kitchen backed up and the bar too.

    A friend and I celebrated our birthday here on a Tuesday night with a group of our other friends, and the service was outstanding. Every drink that was concocted for us from the bar was delicious and fit our tastes. The waitstaff was very helpful, and very patient, with our group. We even took photos together with the staff at the end of the night, to commemorate the occasion. It was a very memorable experience, and I highly recommend Prohibition.

    My wife and I arrived to a softly-lit and cozy ambience. We weren't approached immediately, but as soon as we were greeted we felt welcomed. Our food was quick (not too busy on a Thursday night), and we enjoyed the hummus. My wife was a bit disappointed with such small portions for our main course, but the flavor was note worthy.

    My biggest disappointment was that the room with the stage is small and so is the stage itself so it was not as impressive as I had hoped. I felt like we were all crammed in there pretty tight.

    I would go back for drinks and the entertainment, but would not be my first choice for dinner. We went for NYE and the designated four course meal was not that spectacular. The first course was ceviche and came out in a small shot glass that was half filled with ceviche, two bites max. The next course was a stuffed crab which again was small, but tasted mediocre. The main entree was filet mignon which was pretty good, but we had to wait on a new set of silverware so by the time we were able to cut into our steaks they weren't nearly as warm as when they first came out. However, it was still very tasty. As for the dessert, the creme brulee came out un-glazed so it had to be sent back and it still was not done right.

    Prohibition is definitely a great place to stop in for a cocktail and maybe an appetizer...unfortunately, their dining execution (both service and food) missed the mark. We had early reservations about 5:30 PM as we were headed to another event and just wanted a good cocktail and some dinner. We were sat in the bar area which was great when our waiter disappeared I could go and fetch what we needed. The drinks were great, as was he appetizer of homemade potato chips. We both ordered steak which was a mistake...this was also the last time we saw our waiter. I'll go for drinks again if I'm out at the Galleria, but certainly not making a special trip and won't be having a meal.

    Fantastically fun ambiance, surprisingly good food, and outstanding cocktails! Just tell the bartender what you're in the mood for (sweet, savory, spicy, or downright outrageous) and he'll mix up something fantastic! I haven't seen the burlesque show yet but have only heard evermore positive feedback. I highly recommend trying their Old Fashioned... it is extraordinary!

    Not a restaurant - it's a bar. Got there on Sunday AM for "brunch" place smelled like spilled beer and wine that fermented overnight the previous nights party. Service was very, very slow, the chairs were akin to living room lounge chairs with worn springs, you sunk into to chairs and the table was to high to comfortably eat food from. A top that - it was very expensive, and the staff - I'll leave the negative comments off. Bottom line, I'd never recommend or go this place for food or reasonable service. It's probably a nice place for late night partying.
