Italian | Downtown, Houston

The greet and wait staff really know how to deliver a memorable dining experience. Attentive, knowledgeable, and possessed a style to make one feel special. For example, my wife was late; however, instead of frustration from the greater, I was escorted to the bar, introduced to bartender, told to have a drink and enjoy and our table would be ready when we are. Upon arrival, my wife was escorted to my side and offered a drink. The waitress assisted with the wine selection (did a very good job) and explained food preparation techniques that help us choose the perfect dish to our taste / expectations. Nice job! More

Gastro Pub | Galleria / Uptown, Houston

Made reservations for 8 and upon arrival, we were seated immediately but abruptly moved to a noisy spot right near the kitchen! They offered comps for the mix up in seating but clearly saw the displeasure on my wife's face. They immediately moved us to the bar/patio area which was the absolute best! Our waitress, Victoria, was OUTSTANDING! Thank you to the manager and Victoria for making my bday very nice! More
