I had friends recommend this place, but I think we went on a bad night. The shrimp scampi was in a watered down lemon garlic sauce, shrimp had to have been boiled and not seared/sauteed and overcooked and the lasagna was spicy and have an overwhelming amount of oregano. Staff was good, but food was not to a serving level.

The hostess seated us at a noisy small table right by the kitchen entrance. Almost every other table was open, but when I asked if we could move to another spot she refused. Claiming they had reservations. I was a little put off since I too had a reservation. She was a bit rude. The food was great though.

All was fine until main course didn’t arrive, 20 mins, then 30 mins, then 40 mins. Several inquiries of the server produced vague reassurances, then at 45 mins he says that they are out of one the items we ordered! 45 mins later?

I understand having bad days but this server and kitchen didn’t appear to be trying! I will think twice before returning.....

We arrived to find that the ovens were out....so no pizza. Had reservations for a few days in advance and they could have called to let us know. We had guests in town and took them...FOR the amazing pizza! Out of the wine we wanted too. Doni was a great waiter. Just a disappointing evening out.

My fiancé and I are from out of town and decided to book reservations for our visit to Houston. We were running late from a ballet and called to let staff know as we didn't want to miss out on this experience. Staff was very accommodating and were able to be seated as soon as we arrived. although, staff was friendly I still felt rushed in making a selection (initial waiter that seated us stopped by the table twice to remind us the kitchen would be closing.)
I had the grilled beef tenderloin and he had the beef short ribs. Both entrees were fantastic and I would highly recommend both.
Overall, I enjoyed the experience and would love to come back to try more of the menu next time we are on vacation.

I ate a CRISP for the first time during a brunch outing with friends and enjoyed the food so much I brought my husband back the next week. I had the same server on both visits, and she provided great service. CRISP provides a large amount of food for a good price. I was not disappointed, and definitely plan to put this restaurant in my brunch rotation.

This is one of our favorite neighborhood spots. Always good food, friendly service and warm atmosphere. Live solo music acts, help make evenings even more enjoyable. It is too bad they don’t have cocktails, but there are plenty of good beer and wine choices.

We took our daughter and her fiance there for her birthday at her request. They had been there and loved the food. We enjoyed the food and our waiter was excellent. Don't have any complaints at all and would likely go back if we lived in that area of town.

Came here because a friend suggested it. Ordered off the Restaurant week menu, the food was very good and the wine suggested by waiter was too. The seating was cramped we were told that we needed to reserve a booth ahead of time I had no idea that was an option.

By the time dessert was served we began to have fruit flies on our table, landing on our cups and in our dessert. Although we were planning to stay and have more drinks we opted on leaving, we also left our dessert. We mentioned it to the waiter he didn't seem to care.

The 2 hostess were young and immature for the job. To our waitress she was not any better. No smiles or greetings when she first gave us our menu. Asking about options on the menu she was very vague and not helpful. The food was pretty good. They have specials daily which is cool.

Neat neighborhood place. Has a wide beer and wine selection. It seems to have 3 distinct areas: the square bar with sports on tv, some high bar tables for people enjoying some wine, and then the restaurant booth and regular tables area for people eating.

The food was a bit disappointing. We got the Houston Restaurant Week 2017 menu. It was a lot of food for 2 people - we had half of our entrees as left overs. Ordered:
- pork belly: dry, odd salty relish, sauce tasted like bbq? - interesting but wouldn't order again
- saffron arancini: nothing special - sauce was just sweet and sour, arancini was underwhelming
- melting beef short ribs: way too salty
- grilled salmon cioppino: this was pretty decent and was a large portion
- merry berry creme brulee: more custardy, which I like and nice presentation, though fruit was sour
- death by brownie: don't order, not worth it; it's just a large brownie (I make better brownies).

This place is always busy when I drive by, and I had been wanting to try it out for a while now. We went for Sunday brunch and really enjoyed ourselves. The pizza crust was very light and crunchy. My husband ordered the Greek style pizza with ground lamb and feta. The other pizza choices were just a little different than what you normally get, which is a nice variety. I had an egg skillet meal which was a nice smaller size item. The hash brown on the side was beautifully crispy and not greasy at all. I can't wait to enjoy the patio when it gets cooler.

I wish I lived closer. The food was delicious! The timing of the food was a bit off. Two of the guests sat for a while with their food while the other two didn't get theirs for a least 5 minutes. I think it was more of an issue with the kitchen rather than the service.

Maybe we're just too old for this spot, but our ears were ringing when we left. We couldn't hear the waiter or the person sitting next to us. It wasn't what we had experienced on our previous visit at all. The pork belly appeteiser wasn't good (had it before and it was awesome) but the waiter took it off the bill and was very nice all around. I think the bottom line is this place is for the younger crowd who don't mind yelling at each other.

My bridesmaids and I came here based on yelp reviews for brunch before heading to Ventura's down the street for my first wedding dress fitting. We all loved the place and all said we'd definitely return. Portions are huge and were perfect for sharing. The waitress was also very nice as well as attentive. One last thing to mention, I had reserved our table on here, and though many place wont seat you until your entire party gets there, 2 people were there about 5-10 minutes ahead of me and they sat them no problem.
