Seafood | Galveston, Galveston

Last night a Guido's I had one of the top 10 meals I have ever eaten: Whole flounder, deboned, stuffed with a fabulous dressing, broiled and covered with lump crab meat. It took me awhile to eat it all, but I did, knowing that likely I would never taste anything that good again. It was so good, I'd almost eat it again tonight—except it was a special and is not always on the menu. More

Contemporary American | Downtown, Houston

We enjoy coming to Diana before every play. We always request bar top dining; it’s the only way to go. On this night, Jonathan was bestowing his expertise (i.e. training 😃) on Sarah. They were both so friendly & engaging, as well as consummate professionals. Water glasses were always topped off without us even noticing and the courses/entrees were delivered at a good pace. Thanks so much for such a wonderful dining experience, Jonathan & Sarah! We look forward to seeing both of you again soon. More

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

Rudy and Paco's is always what you expect , I had know the silent partner Rudy for fourty five years + and he would not have his name on anything he didn't fully enjoy and respect his partner. Paco Vargus does an exceptional job as Chef and Host, I have eaten lunch and dinner many times since 1999, I have celebrated many special occasions there since and have never been disappointed. Vargus / Cut and Catch across the street is another 'Gem' in the making More
