The restaurant was not staffed appropriately which was reflected in the service. The food was good and ambiance was lovely.
Exquisite dining experience in a luxurious setting inside the beautiful Hotel ICON. I will be back and highly recommend!
This historic gem in the heart of Downtown Houston is a former bank and the original vault sits in the lobby of the hotel, talk about a welcoming wow factor! From the moment you arrive you feel immersed in historic nostalgia. The luxurious look and feel of the lobby, bar, and restaurant Line & Lariat make you feel like you've traveled to a 5 star hotel in New York City or even Paris. Once sat and warmly greeted, the bountiful Texas-sized servings started to arrive at the table. From presentation to taste everything was beyond 5 stars. Do not pass up the craft cocktails at Line & Lariat! The Key to the vault is the signature cocktail and it’s almost too pretty to drink, but after your first sip, you’ll be convinced you have to drink it. I have been back to the L&L bar a few times just for cocktails before a Rockets game and business lunches. Truly a gem in the heart of downtown Houston that will impress your colleagues, date, or guests. Enjoy!
Really like the salad card at lunch. Server seemed bothered we were there. Not attentive at all.
I have Been to this restaurant many times and this time was a huge dissapointment my friend and i went there last year for breakfast and it was wonderful. This time it was not. The room smelled like varnish as they had been working on the floors. It was very profound The buffet was awful and 1/4 of the size. When I inquired they cut it down for the holidays. What? The price wasn’t cut. The service was also really bad. I’m not sure I’d go back. This is the first bad review I’ve written. Awful
set in a lovely room that once was a bank, with the vault door on display - the Hotel Icon's restaurant Line & Lariat is Texan themed. Food was very good (salmon, redfish, meatloaf) and wine reasonably priced. Décor is delightful and atmosphere very quiet compared to the Main St chaos on a Saturday night. Sunday night was even quieter with only one staff on bar and dining room - he did an admirable job but was really worked. Parking block next door $10 - and valet parking at Hotel available $?
Always fresh and delicious! Noise level always a minimal. Service is excellent.
We arrived at 6:02pm for our 6:00pm reservation. There was no one at the hostess stand and not one waiter in the place. We waited until 6:17 and still no one showed. The hotel concierge was rude and not interested that no one was in the restaurant. So we went to the bar and ate there. Ed the bar tender was great! I’d skip the restaurant and hit the bar from now on.
THE SERVICE WAS VERY GOOD. THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD ALSO WITH VERY DECENT PORTIONS.
Very limited menu - even though we could not get reservations at the time we requested, the restaurant was EMPTY - only 1 other table occupied!
Rolls were awful - obviously placed in microwave to warm up and were so tough they could not be bitten!
Food was so-so - certainly nothing to recommend.
