I went here for my birthday dinner and to participate in Houston Restaurant Week. It's a beutiful restaurant. I did not love the lobster bisque, but the Porterhouse was outstanding. Hostess and wait staff were amazing!

The lobster bisque taste like tomato basil soup! If this is a cup of tomato basil soup I shouldn’t have any complaint!

The soups were amazing, but the steak and dessert were just OK. I’m glad we went for restaurant week because I’d be disappointed paying full price for the food. The decor is amazing, though!

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...

Lunch at 5115 was wonderful. My daughter and I were having a day together and this was our choice from the list of Houston Restaurant Week choices. The food was yummy and the drinks were cold and delightful.

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.

I recently went here for Houston Restaurant week. The food was good but not outstanding. I had the pork rib and potato cakes for breakfast and my fiancé had the avocado toast with salmon both solid but not exceptional.

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.

We just wanted a quiet place for a family Sunday Brunch. Couldn't have picked a better location. Food and service were superb, great value and the live music (piano) was perfect.

All in all, a very enjoyable occasion. We will be back.

I’ve had Lunch at 51Fifteen quite a few times now. Everything about this restaurant is above the standard par. From the Piano Player to the Friendly Staff, this place is beyond inviting. Today, I had the pleasure of having the Bartender Santos make my cocktails and they were very delightful. I started out with their Pear Martini and then ended with a side car. For lunch I had a piping hot bowl of Lobster Bisque Soup to Start. Then I had the Red Snapper with Risotto. Everything was outstanding. I truly enjoy coming to lunch her. I would recommend this place to anyone who has never tried it.

We attended for Easter Brunch. While the food is good, the presentation, the service, the variety, and the overall atmosphere was disappointing. This is advertised as one of the best restaurants in Houston but based on our experience it misses the mark.

The buffet was not all of the advertised items. The carving station is the absolute worst meats I have ever tasted. The beef was not chewable. The Eggs Benedict consisted of a poached egg with a less than impressive hollandaise sauce. The eggs were not on English muffins with Canadian bacon. Those items were not even available. I shall not eat there again, nor could I recommend the restaurant.

I took my family for Easter brunch to relax and have what I thought was a great buffet in an elegant environment. What I got instead was a seat in an overflow area with no view or ambiance. Later, when I got the check I was dumbfounded by the exorbitant costed that meal. I wound up with tab of almost $300 for my wife and I and our two children for what was at bed a mediocre meal.
I later found out that where they make most of their money is on beverages (alcoholic and nonalcoholic). This is the first time I’ve been to a buffet where even soft drinks are charged at a premium.

This place is a ripoff and I will never go back again. If you are reading this post don’t try this place unless you want to be ripped off. Terrible experience!

Dined there for Easter brunch. Service was good but buffet selection wasn’t particularly extensive and they were still setting up when we arrived even though they should have been well underway and certain items didn’t keep up with diners, running out often.

Great food, great service but a horrible experience. I made a reservation, called to confirm and stopped by earlier in the day and nobody every mentioned that they were renting out the restaurant for a private party at a similar time to disrupt my dinner event. Could have been a great night but left shaking my head w a bad experience.

The overall experience was horrible. It was a beautiful restaurant with a great piano player, but it stopped there. The drinks are expensive,but mediocre at best. The menu selection was limited and although the menu said a number of things were provided in each meal the plate did not reflect the menu. Portion sizes are very small. Also, we had a party of 10, but the restuarant would not split the check. They made us stay there for an extra hour splitting the check manually so we could pay with separate checks. Then they offered a free desert for my birthday. I said cheesecake, they brought me chocolate cake. We made the best of it with our $500 tab. I ate half my food and took the rest to go, but kept smelling this awful smell. I figured out the food was spoiled when I got home a became sick to my stomach.

Never again. Since we are frequesnt brunchers with a monthly brunch ritual for the ladies, I can honestly say we have much better experiences at Grandlux, Graces, Cheesecake factory, Phil & Derek's , The Address and Lucille's.

They are wasting a beautiful space in the Galleria.

Took my dear friend to brunch for her birthday and we had a wonderful time . Really enjoyed Michaelangelo playing “Happy Birthday” and all the show tunes we requested. We were entertained and deliciously fed. Can’t ask for more.
