I brought my wife to 51fifteen for a Birthday Brunch and we were extremely pleased with our experience. First off, the restaurant is gorgeous inside and wife’s reaction made me feel even better about surprising her with the choice. Our server was very attentive and made sure to acknowledge our celebration. Also, our meals were very well prepared. There was even a piano player who came to our table, wished my wife HBD, and welcomed us to request a song or two. I was confident that 51fifteen would deliver an experience that would help to make her day special and they really delivered in every way possible.

Being that it was my first time I must say I will not be coming back. Granted it was on valentine’s day and they had selective menu to choose from, but every dish that was selected was horrible. I tried to speak with a manager to see if something could be done, but all I got was the waiter and the host. $197.00 was spent that night and the only person happy was the owner and chef.

My girlfriend an I love this place. it is our go-to place to dine when we get together every couple of months or so for lunch.

The Valentine's meal was the best meal we've both had in many years.

The food is always delicious. But the customer service is why I love coming back. We asked about vegan options and our waiter let us know that vegan options were easily accommodated by the chef, even if not in the menu. Our party of three was waited on hand and foot as we celebrated an engagement. A complimentary dessert was the perfect way to end a lovely dinner.

Very quiet night and few customers, so hard to determine if service or food was typical.
Seafood salad was delicious, though seafood amount was sparse for price.
Lamb was good but not as well seasoned as I would have liked.
Overall, food was good, service very attentive.
Would probably try it again-but during the day when it is busier.

All That Glitters Is Not GOLD. This place is absolutely gorgeous but lacks a true fine dinning experience. They were blasting music at the bar as if was a club on a Saturday night and the selection of music was not very pleasing for the environment. I could hardly have a conversation let alone place my order.. also the place pretty much was empty and I still had to wavy down my server a few times.. beautiful restaurant but needs better management. Cant say I recommend it, definitely won’t be going back.

Food was spot on. We arrived early and were seated immediately. We were looking for a light lunch mid afternoon. The avocado/ cucumber salad was very fresh and tasty. Our chicken wrap and the French dip were excellent and our waiter was very attentive. We will certainly return again.

OMG. Just everything I wanted to be. Someone was visiting from out of state and this early brunch was just beautiful. Michael the pianist was very nice he took pictures for me to remember the moments. Love him as I am a regular here. I’ll be back soon.

It was wonderful as usual, but the best part is always the pianist Michelangelo’s music which just makes the lunch so unique and special, especially since so many restaurants don’t have a pianist these days. So, we will continue to come to eat great food and listen to beautiful music as it is such a treat!

I have been here before and had a good experience, however, the food this time around was lacking from start to finish. The tempura lobster was extremely chewy and hard to even bite through. The drinks were undressed, and after all three of us ordering multiple drinks we stopped as none of them tasted right. The snapper I ordered had more skin and scales than actual filet meat. My friends sea bass was chewy, and the short ribs and ravioli my husband ordered was dry and very chewy. It was a very unpleasant dining experience and was absolutely not worth the money we spent on this meal.

The food here was wonderful. The service, not so much. We came for Houston Restaurant Week. The hostess only gave us the regular menu. It took about 10 minutes for our waiter to even come over to the table. Once he did, we asked for the HSW menu. It took another 5 minutes before he brought those to the table. The restaurant was not crowded. The entire meal took almost 2 hours. We had the brunch. Steak and eggs were exceptional. The chef cooked the steak as requested. I also enjoyed their portobello soup. It had a slight kick to it which was delicious. We had to catch someone walking by both times we needed iced tea refills. We never saw our waiter the entire time we were eating, not even to see if we liked the food. I would return but only if I had a few hours for eating.

My friends and I were very excited to try out this restaurant. We were welcomed in with such a great energy and from the bar - the music, the lighting, and the ambience were a great combination that makes you want to stay and dine and drink and have a great girl time.

We were seated a few minutes after we checked in. We asked for HRW and drinks menus. The waiter came back with glasses of water and the menus and we asked for a moment for we to decide. It takes the waiter 40 minutes to take our order and pour us a second glass of water. He was quick to come and quick to leave. We didn't even get to order our drinks. Needless to say, he didn't come with any recommendations.

The bread only comes after the first course was served. The food was absolutely delicious. My lobster bisque is Rich with seafood taste, the lamb is perfect to my liking, and the chocolate cake is moist and semi sweet.

After we were done with dessert, they cleaned up our table and immediately handed us our check. We then realized that we didn't get to order our drinks and was not asked if we would want some coffee or tea after dinner with our desserts.

In summary, I had a good time with my friends, good vibes, and good food but the service is absolutely far from what I was expecting from this restaurant.

I loved the food but our waiter was rude and impatient. Which made it an uncomfortable first time there.
