The food and service was wonderful, as always. I had lobster, which was delicious and the cauliflower and eggplant with creamed corn was very good. The salad and dessert were also excellent. Wouldn’t mind slightly larger servings of the main dish. 4 ounces is not a lot. But everything together was delicious and a healthy amount. Thanks for a pleasant evening! More

Everything was really great for our GNO, but would have loved to not keep getting up for our own napkins or utensils. It was valentine's day, so maybe they were extra busy, but that was my only complaint. I'd go back again in a heartbeat. Very nice and just simple. More

Chinese (Canton) | Heights / Washington, Houston

First time there. The service was very good. The cocktails were unique and I especially recommend their ginger margarita. The soup dumplings (not on the menu) were excellent, although a little too big to just pop in your mouth whole, as they should be. The chicken curry dish was my only complaint. Overall, will return.

Contemporary American | Heights / Washington, Houston

I often go to Down House, it's local and while it serves good wine, beer and food, it is not crazy busy - you know, that annoying 1-2 hr wait that you have to do at virtually every place in The Heights. I had the Flat Iron Steak salad this time round and it was tasty. Normally I go for the Mushrooms on Toast with side salad which is the bomb. I do wish that they would work on their desert menu though, it is so uninspiring and in my opinion, dinner out is all about the desserts. More
