great 2nd visitGreat food and service. Ask for James, he was great and knew his food.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNo wine serviceI went to have dinner onTuesday night, took a friend for her birthday and we order a bottle of red wine (St. Supery elu), yes the wine was decanted as I requested, but it was not offered. So after the manager decanted the wine the server not once did he took the time to pour the wine into our glasses, which I did and kept refilling them throughout the night. After dinner we left the restaurant and went to have champagne along with dessert somewhere else. Overall the food was great and my friend enjoy the view. I would recommend this place for the view.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGood ExperienceI took my friend to SpindleTop for her birthday. I made reservations to ensure a table.

-Waiting staff was polite and knowledgeable;
-Food was great;
-view was to die for at the time of evening we went.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNight to rememberWe celebrated my girlfriends 25th birthday here and she was extremely impressed to say the least. The view itself is wonderful in itself. Then add a well prepared meal and great wine selection all adds up to a night to remember.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulMy boyfriend and I went to the spindle top and I was a little skeptical after reading the reviews.
I walked in and the place was amazing the view was spectacular . But it didn’t stop there
our waiter Will was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!! He was friendly as well as very helpful in helping us decide
on what to eat. I had the salmon which was great and my Boyfriend at the Paella which he enjoyed.
The crab cakes were to die for. For me it was definitely worth it and we will definitely go again.

The food was extremely good, not to die for, but certainly within the high quality we expected. The service was extremely good also. All the staff were incredibly friendly and and went the extra mile to accommodate the guests. What really sets Spindletop apart is the ambience.

Staff was amazing and went above and beyond to ensure his birthday dinner was memorable.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSpindletop was a surprise.Spindletop was a surprise. We went because we were staying at the hotel and it was raining. It was wonderful! The food was great. My husband had the filet of beef and found it excellent and super tasty. I had the salmon which was very good and also some huge black beans that were out of this world! We got there in time to see the sun set, which didn't because it was cloudy but the view is beautiful. We saw the city of Houston light up! Definitely worth a visit. By the way, the manager came to our table a few times to check on us, the waiter, Will was very efficient and the busboy, Manuel was constantly checking our table for water, bread, or just chatting. We could not have asked for better service.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSip and Spin is a wonderful thing.As, usual my dining experience was excellent. The Sip and Spin, 3 course Wine pairing dinner was very delightful. The crab cake was one of the best that I've experienced. The salmon was cooked perfectly and the dessert was divine and each wine selection was a compliment to the food. As always, I request Ms. Lois as my server extraordinaire. She's the best. The manager is always a pleasure as well, as he often stops by to chat with the guest. Can't wait to go back again.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMSpindletop is an excellentSpindletop is an excellent resturant for any special occasion. The view of the city is awesome.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was out of this world.Dinner was out of this world. Will was our waiter he was great no complaints. Everyone from elevator to hostess proved very high class dining. All deserve a nice pat on the back or a award for outstanding service for a great time for my wife and I being our 15 year anniversary dinner.. now the slight negatives only two... decor seems alittle out dated and when you arrive into lobby of spindle top it a slight odor of mildew not over powering. like old wet carpet.. with that said yes i would return no questions about it. keep up the great job and atmosphere...3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience each timeGreat experience each time we visit, however their menu is quite limited.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMMy red snapper was only average.My red snapper was only average.

Nice place to come and have a glass of wine as well.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dinner and ambianceMy husband and I went for dinner to celebrate our birthdays. We had a wonderful experience! Our food was delicious as well as our view.
Every table has a great view and its neat to have a 360 degree view of Houston. Try to plan your visit when it will be a clear evening, around sunset. They give you generous portions and had vegetarian options for me. The vegetarian option is usually a pasta with vegetables. We would recommend the flat bread for an appetizer. We had a great dinner and the service was excellent!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful staff.. we werewonderful staff.. we were celebrating my love's birthday and he couldn't Get enough! said we have to go back atleast once a month3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place!!!This was my first time at this restaurant. I booked a reservation the day of my anniversary. This place was amazing an my wife loved it. The staff there were very friendly and the food was to die for. Even though the menu does not have very many options theres something there for everyone. I even ordered a flower arrangement to be setup at the table before we got there and they did not fail me. I would definetly be back back again!!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time we have been there.Second time we have been there. It gets better every time!!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGive your review a title (optional)We went on a weekday evening, so there were on few tables that were being used.
