This is our favorite restaurant for dining before the theater and ballet. The seafood is great and my wife loves Bob's martinis and we both love the desserts. As always a great place!
A lovely spot for fine food, pre-theater/ballet/symphony!
Waiter and waitress were very attentive. Food was excellent. Very convenient for pre theater dinner.
One of the nicest, most patient and professional wait staff group that our group of belligerent random group of friends has ever encountered. Thank you for being patient with us. Being at the Lancaster was a highlight of our trip to Houston.
Great place for dinner before or dessert after the theatre.
We always come to this restaurant before the show. I will look elsewhere now. My son & I were meeting for dinner before a show. We were greeted at the table by our waiter, then he never came back. When we called him, he ignored us. We finally received the attention of another waiter who took care of us. The first waiter was working hard for the table with 4 next to us, but totally ignored us. Funny thing was when the table of 4 was paying the bill, he was there as they were thanking him for his great attention to them. I don't know the story there. Maybe he was just reassigned to the bigger table? Even so, in general, the service was very slow and the buffer time I had allowed before the event left us running to the theatre after paying our bill. Its time for us to try something else.
A perfect choice when you want a sophisticated and calm dining ambience where you can actually hear each other talk. I love this place for it's menu and ambience. The location is also superior for pre and post theater.
Really enjoyed my first visit to Bistro Lancaster! Was there with a girlfriend before we went to the ballet. The curry chicken salad was yummy and our waiter was so friendly and attentive!
Food was average. Bloody Mary was horrible. I would not recommend or go back.
Great abieance. Good food. Waiters were very polite.
it was perfect before performance at the wortham. we parked easily, ate a nice meal with a nice wine. the waitress was so sweet and lovely
Although the food was excellent I would hesitate to recommend this restaurant other than for its convenience when going to the theater district. It is quite close to several theaters which gives it appeal and the food truly is excellent. So what's the downside? I felt the menu was a bit limited and the pricing quite high especially for wine. One or two glasses of wine at 10, all others 13+. Food too is pricey. Service was slow as there seemed to be one waitress for the entire restaurant. Not her fault but slow nevertheless. If you don't mind the prices and you are going to the theater it is a good choice but value wise too high.
Nice bistro atmosphere. Limited lunch menu but food was good. Quiet place for a casual business lunch.
We celebrated Pre-Valentines at the Lancaster Bistro. Dinner was great and service with Oscar with impeccable! They really go the extra mile to accommodate and make the occasion special.
The food was good and the service was good, it's a nice location.
It was my first time there. I thought the food and service were outstanding. I will return in the very near future and try other items. The waitstaff were friendly and very helpful. Speedy service, but not rushed, just tr right amount of attention. The wine selection was great, food was excellent.
This restaurant is very accommodating on food allergies and dietary restrictions. We have been here many times and always find something great on the menu, which regularly evolves. This time I had a delicious kale salad to which I added grilled chicken. My colleague had perfectly prepared lamb chops. Wine selection is good. I recommend the place highly.
We often eat here before a theater performance. Always great food and service.
My friend and I had a lovely dinner before going to the Hobby Center to see "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night". She had the kale salad to start and then the Soy glazed Chicken. I had the Salmon. No dessert because we were off to the theater. We did use the Valet parking but diners should be aware that the Lancaster does not offer free parking with the order of an entrée. I think it may still be listed on the sign on the Valet station.
Love the bistro for pre-theater. The food was very good. The staff treated us very well.
