Went to Line and Lariat for Easter Brunch. Pricey, but well set-up with great selection. Oscar was a very attentive waiter and we were never left wanting for anything. Beautiful decor as it is nestled in Hotel Icon. Valet parking pretty much a necessity. Would definitely go to L&L again!

Dining at Line and Lariat
Dining at Line and Lariat was a revelation. The thing about hotel restaurants is that primarily hotel guests partake, but this place is a destination on its own. It certainly helps that the hotel is stunning, but so is the food. The service from busboy to manager was first rate. Everything I ate was exceptional without being pretentious or overdone. The campechana was a great, light first course. The entrees were hearty, but very subtly flavored. My shrimp and grits were so well seasoned. In fact, the sauteed spinach might have been the best part, which speaks volumes to the thought behind the flavors. Dessert for me was a bread pudding with cherries and chocolate in a cast iron vessel. Highly recommend.

Line and Lariat is a great
Line and Lariat is a great place for wonderful food. There weer no lows - the meats (wild boar and antelope) were terrific, as were the sides and starts. We recommend the sausage appetizer plate, particularly for a group. The hotel is beautiful and the dining room is a real pleasure to look at. The service was not on par with the meal and the surroundings - the service was relatively amateurish and inconsistent (drinks can take some time - order before you're ready for the next cocktail!) The music mix left something to be desired, but overall a great experience.

Great find in Downtown Houston
We rarely eat at Hotel restaurants...this was a pleasant find. Excellent food. Reasonable price. You can eat "big" or "small". Nice choices. Friendly service. Very tasty food! Nice bar for a drink before dinner or anytime..."generous" pour on the wine and drink! $5 bar bites which were excellent...from 4 or 5 to 11 pm. We will be back!

When the waiter did not know
When the waiter did not know the answer to a question we had, instead of making something up he asked about it and brought us the correct information. We appreciated that.

Line & Lariat is relaxed elegance. Food was wonderful and fancy, service was friendly and superb. What more could you ask for?! I will definitely be back!

We really enjoyed our overall
We really enjoyed our overall experience at Line and Lariat. The dining room is beautiful! The menu is a beautiful mix of Texas, Mexican and European influences. Oscar, our server, was fantastic. He was friendly, professional and informative. Truly a standout waiter! I loved my Icon Rajas Burger. The bun was fantastic and did not falter under the burger's fabulous ingredients. Our salads, The Icon Chopped and Icon Tomato were fresh, plentiful and very tasty. The only thing I am surprised about is the Icon's wine list. Most of the selection is just OK. With the caliber of food being served I would have loved to have seen a more thoughtful wine list.The Saint Arnold's Icon on draft and Formula 2 Martini made up for a so so wine list.

Beautiful place hidden in Downtown
This is a great restaurant in Downtown Houston (Main St.). It is located in the Icon Hotel and has a wonderful ambiance. Good food and excellent service.

I was looking for a downtown restaurant that was open on Sunday. I read the reviews in My Table magazine which were very good plus it was minutes away from our Sunday matinee show. Food was outstanding. I got the scallops and my husband got the bone in ribeye. Both done to perfection. We didn't have room for dessert but hope to sample them next time. Judy

My husband and I met a friend
My husband and I met a friend at Line and Lariat for dinner one evening. We had been there once before when the restaurant had a different name. We liked the feel of the restaurant and we all enjoyed our meal. We tried the Salmon and the Filet and for appetizers, the gumbo and the french onion soup. There were many tables occupied but the sound level was very low, so we were able to converse without it being difficult hear. Parking was very easy and we would eat there again.

Food and service Deicious
Its hard to put a good resturant in a lobby. This one needs a little work to improve privacy and intimacy, but it can be done.
Will be back

I went to L&L with a girl friend this past Saturday before we went to see a show at the Hobby Center and it greatly exceeded my expectations. It's restaurant week and we had the prix fixe menu with 3 courses for $35. I had the Gulf Coast Coconut Shrimp which was fantastic, the Duo of Stuffed Chiles (which was actually a trio) which was also fantastic, and the pecan pie, which was good, but the homemade ice cream that came with it was even better. The service was efficient and friendly, and the ambience was nice. Unfortunately there weren't many people there, which probably can be attributed to the fact that it's a restaurant in a hotel, but I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Great quality food, great experience all around.

Went on a Sunday night- restaurant was almost empty. Service was excellent but again we were practically the only ones in the place.

Nice restaurant. Great food. Ok service. Great for a business dinner or night out with friends. Quiet and off the beaten path so great for conversation. Average $45 per person.

Not too fancy, not down scale, L&L is just right. Best short rbs around, an unpretentious take on a chopped wedge salad, even an out of place but well executed tuna tartare. All this and bacon-infused rye at a bar with inside-out leather chairs!
I may not go out of my way to return, but if I'm in the neighborhood I'll gladly stop by.

Wonderful meal and service
Went for Houston Restaurant Weeks. Excellent food and service! Our servers Chadwick and Hadi made the whole evening a lot of fun. Have a drink first at the bar. Go across the street and visit Old Market Square. We had the Icon Chop salads (delicious!), the filet mignon and scallops (wonderful!) and took our pecan pie and cherry cheesecake home as we were too full.

This is a business lunch destination. The menu is short, the surroundings are sumptuous, and the service is good. This is a good place to negotiate a deal.

We were looking for something different to try after a show downtown and L&L was a hit! We are tired of the same places that are across the street from the venues and treat their clientele as if they are unwanted. So, we journeyed a couple of blocks and are very glad we did. the service was attentive but not overbearing, the food was fresh and flavorful and the decor was warm and comfortable. A nice ending to a great evening.

We had an excellent Sunday dinner at Line and Lariat. A reasonably priced menu, well-prepared quality food, and responsive service makes this a "must try" place. Try it, you will like it!
