Gorgeous, elegant surroundings with beautiful piano music (soft) and attentive service. I'd call this place a soothing oasis in a very hectic neighborhood (Galleria) and am looking forward to returning soon.

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.

The staff was wonderful, but the food was not... We went for Houston Restaurant Week and I'm not sure if that was the issue, but the food was very mediocre. The "avocado" toast had two tiny dollops of what appeared to be grocery store deli case guacamole, but no real avocado at all. The egg on top of the short rib potato cakes was cold and somehow overcooked but still slimy. Tiny mimosas were a whopping $11 each. I could go on, but those were the most disappointing features of what we were served.

We celebrated a birthday there and indicated so, but it didn’t seem to register with them. In any case, food portions were small, ambience more like a converted store showroom (which it was, as part of Saks) and not cozy. Service was very good but it is not what we were expecting...

We always enjoy trying new places during HRW, so although the Galleria isn’t our regular stomping grounds, we decided to try out 51 Fifteen. The service was present, but not obtrusive. We were really able to relax in good food and conversation.

Food is average. Over priced. You will be disappointed. Go across the street to Masraff's. Not measuring price/performance but at least don't make the customer feel like they got short changed.
It taste like the vacuumed sealed frozen steak I get at Waffle House. Oh ! The steak sauce is good call. Almost covered the sour taste in the meat.

We had a reservation for 1:00 PM and was not seated till 1:22 PM. The waiter was not flexible on certain menu selection (has a frown look in his face). The food was mediocre for a Sunday brunch. The restaurant was loud., everyone was talking so loud just to be heard.

We took advantage of HRW to try 51Fifteen for Sunday Brunch. We all ordered off of the HRW brunch menu and we all enjoyed our meals. Definitely a value at $20 for a three course meal, but I will definitely go back after HRW. Good portion sizes, flavor was on point, and dishes were presented beautifully. Our server was attentive, professional, and personable. Overall excellent experience!

I really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.
I found that the shrimp risotto was excellent and my friend enjoyed the ahi tuna salad. The crème brûlée was authentic and not too sweet.
Flavorful full, nice presentation, large portion servings,, good service, nice decor. Probably over priced though.
