We ordered a pizza and some fish, both delish. They allowed us to test some beers before committing to buying them. Overall great experience, highly recommend the bread pudding.

Great brunch options. Enjoyed the Brewers breakfast complete with pancakes, sausage, eggs, and potatoes. Breakfast pizza was good as well. Great choice of local beers. Good value.

The live music was too loud, we asked that the music be turned down it wasn’t , I had to yell across the table to my date.

Im a musician, you taylor your music to the audience. This is a restaurant not a rock and roll bar

$2.50 mimosas can’t be beat! Great value especially in the heights. The ambiance inside is average but the outside patio is super cute! The food was pretty good!

Was expecting great food and was very disappointed. How can you screw up a simple burger (over cooked) and a salad (boring and dressing not good). The only good thing was not having to pay for a valet.

My husband and I wanted to try a new restaurant for NYE and chose CRISP. The food was amazing and our server was great with how busy they were. Our server didn't rush us but was as attentive as possible as well. My only issue was that I made a reservation and we got sat right by the kitchen where there was a ton of traffic constantly. I was hoping because I made a reservation we'd get a booth or something a bit nicer. It wasn't the most romantic evening because I felt like I constantly needed to dodge servers. In addition, the hostesses were not welcoming at all and did not acknowledge our presence leaving either. When we walked in they just kind of stared at us and waited until I said we have a reservation. Pretty sure the girl was on her phone when we were walking out as well. However the food and service were amazing.

Nice food with attentive service delivered consistently at this Heights eatery. Piped in music from live musicians makes this venue way too noisy for conversation.

Brought a client for end of year/holiday appreciation. The service was slow and they were not to full capacity. Two times my client tried to order and they were out of his chosen dishes. They had never been to Crisp so I was very embarrassed.

The place is pretty loud due to the layout and the fact the bar is open to the restaurant. The food was decent but took a while to come out. The service was good but not very friendly- the first person who came to our table to give us water seemed put out and didn’t greet us so we were confused if she was our waiter or not. Overall it was a good place for casual dining and good for kids.

It was my Birthday and the waiter unfortunately forgot to put my order in. Luckily there were extra pizza left over so I ate that.

The food was delicious and the waiter very apologetic for the mistake comped us a carafe of sangrias ($15 value). As a courtesy, I would have appreciated the manager coming to our table too but that didn’t happen nor did we request him since the waiter made it right.

What a great place! My favorite restaurant in the Heights. I have yet to find a dish that I don't like. Their did is prepared with fresh ingredients and with a toast twist. Tonight, the live music was excellent. Thank you, the Crisp Staff Family.

An automatic loss of star is the mandatory valet parking. I parked on a nearby residential street. The location is nice because it is tucked away in a residential area. The crowd is Anglos or Asians, millenials or peri-geriatrics. It has more of a sports bar feel. Multiple large screen TVs playing various sports games. Waiter Tony's had limited English comprehension. When asked about the gluten free pasta he replied it had flour and olive oil. When questioned about what type of flour he had to ask the chef. The seafood Di Mare dish did not mention an onion ingredient but when served there it was bigger than Dallas. Also the Chicken Panzanella is topped with chicken. It was lukewarm and had to be returned to the kitchen because the chicken is supposed to be served hot. Crisp serves iced tea. I ordered iced tea but was never asked if I wanted sugar so I had to track down Tony to get some sugar. This is Texas, sweet tea is a staple!! Get some culture sensitivity training guys!
Due to the multiple fumbles throughout the evening, Tony did comp us some rice krisy treats but they will never recover.

We absolutely love their marguerita pizza, it’s our favorite in houston. But, for the price, they surely have been cutting back on the good stuff. Our pizza was basically crust this time, no cheese and very little tomatoes.

Guys, $15 for crust? Please go back to cooking that awesome super cheesy flavorful pizza.

My beef tenderloin was extremely overcooked and absolutely terrible. $40 dollars for what looked to be 5 oz of grey beef. To top it off, the service was slow and practically non-existent. Will not ever be going back— very disappointed.

HRW menu. The gnocchi was dry and the apple dumpling type dessert was undone in the crust. It was gooey and raw on the inside. But we still love going there!

The gnoche dish on the Houston restaurant week was not good, the pizza was ok, but not better than average. Overall really disappointed by the food, the atmosphere of the place had a a lot of potential but I won’t go back because of the quality of the food. If you are only going for drinks it’s fine, just eat elsewhere.
