Incredible! Our server Omar was very knowledgeable and made nothing but the best suggestions on what to try from the menu. From appetizers to main course and sides the entire experience is well worth it. The lighting inside is perfect and the noise level is not an issue at all. Me and my wife were able to hear each other clearly and the server as well. The Old Fashioned cocktail was so good me and my wife ordered 6! Lol. But remember always drink responsibly we know our limits so know yours. The staff also at me and my wife's request took photos of us in front of the wine wall which turned out perfect. I would post but the pixels are too large. Lol. Even the valet was courteous and made sure to guide us with precise instruction on how to get to the restaurant, which is by way of elevator on the left as soon as you enter. 51fifteen is highly recommended in my honest opinion. If you choose to go I recommend putting in your reservation first which saves you time and is more professional for an upscale experience. You will be seated immediately I guarantee. 5 Stars from me!! Kudos 51fifteen!!!! I will return. Lol

This is a wonderful restaurant. The ambiance is really nice and the food is excellent. They have recently redone their wine list, which definitely has some better offerings now. Great place for a girls lunch or a date night.

Spur of the moment romantic dinner, randomly selected restaurant for convenience, turned out to be a wonderful choice. Delicious food, nice portion size, cozy booth seating with subdued lighting. I can strongly recommend the whole branzino and the pureed pea and asparagus risotto.

Wanted to have a "fancy" NYE dinner with husband and tween daughter, and surprisingly, this restaurant had plenty of availability. We were seated right away for our 8:15 reservation, however service was slow. Waters came to the table after about 15 minutes and this trend continued throughout the night. Restaranut wasn't overly crowded, so we can't use the excuse of holiday hustle and bustle. Husband ordered an Old Fashioned that didn't arrive until after we reminded the server well after the food arrived. It was super watery, so he sent it back to the bar. Ribeye was also sent back because it was super red even though we ordered medium-well and the portion of snapper was pretty small. Average brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes, but poblano bisque was good. The ambiance, live band and amazing Christmas decor is all I can rave about.

First off the food was delicious. Service was a little slow. Typical of a Houston restaurant, they tell you what they ran out of instead of the specials. Inventory management in this town is the worst I’ve seen.

The duck was very tender and sides were perfectly seasoned. Soups were very tasteful and the creme brûlée was delicious! We will be back to try other menu options and for the duck.

One negative is I put it on the reservation that it was my GF birthday but not one mention of it. Most places will say “Happy Birthday.

The carb meat ravioli was outstanding as was the white bread pudding. The ambiance is lovely--especially at Christmas time. A pianist was playing Christmas tunes. The key lime pie was also a hit. This is a hidden gem of a resteraunt and we are sure to return.

I was interested in trying out 51fifteen ever since it arrived at the galleria and finally decided to try it during Houston's restaurant week.
The hostess told my date to remove his hat; though it was a dress hat. Yet shorts, sneakers, jeans and half dressed guest were allowed, hmmm...doesn't make sense to me.
The chicken and waffles we ordered were HORRIBLE!!
Both me and my date had to send our food back because the waffles tasted like they had been saturated in orange and were half raw. The fried chicken had a sour smell and was soggy from being cooked in old grease.
The manager offered us another menu option, but to be honest...should have just comped the meal.
Glad I visited when I did because I saved myself a much bigger check.
Food was subpar, not worth another visit in my opinion.

The food was terrible. The beet salad was really a romaine salad with a few spiralized raw beets on top, the lobster bisque was too fishy no one at the table ate it, the salmon with pasta had a few small bites of salmon (not the usual fillet at all the other restaurants), the sirloin steak slices were was too salty and all the desserts were very disappointing. There was not one dish that was good.

Very disappointed! Very limited wine menu, although the wines were popular and acceptable. We were here for my daughter's birthday and came on a recommendation. My son and I ordered off the restaurant week menu. We started with the Lobster Bisque. It tasted like Campbell's soup sans lobster. They stated they were out of the Porterhouse, but would substitute a Ribeye. When the steak arrived, it was a strip. I brought this to the waiters attention and he offered to replace it with the ribeye. Not wanting to waste food, I politely accepted the steak. The strip was not marbled or flavorful. The cut was was not with the grain, but diagonal. This made the steak very tough. It was cooked to the correct medium rare temperature. I ate what I could stomach and left the rest for my dogs. The desserts did not appear house made and were okay at best. The coffee was good and the servers were prompt and attentive. The two star reviews were for the food. It was bland and not of the quality I expect in a upscale restaurant. I will not be back.
