I’ve been going to this restaurant for many years during Christmas the food is below average they haven’t changed the menu in the last for five years. Prime Rib Sandwich is dry and has no flavor. Deserts are below average IT IS A SHAME BECAUSE THE AMBIANCE IS GREAT CLEAN BEAUTIFUL RESTAURANT I HOPE THEY CAN IMPROVE THE MENU

We dined at 51 Fifteen to celebrate our line birthday as we have been in our sorority for 21 years. We were seated at a spacious table in the dinning area right by the doorway. Unfortunately, it was a little noisy when the pianist was playing. We were unable to hear each other talk. Still enjoyed ourselves. There were so many options on the menu and we needed many minutes to decide. The ambiance, food, and drinks were great.

We’ve enjoyed 51fifteen about 10 times in the past. Unfortunately, it was disappointing Friday afternoon: the salad looked and tasted like it was made up and left to set in the refrigerator for hours. Our main server mumbled, did not remember we requested two courses and brought everything out at the same time. He also overlooked bringing a clean plate, since we were sharing. The dessert (a chocolate cake) was dry and tasted as it had been sliced and left open for a couple of days. The piano (which we have thoroughly enjoyed in the past) was so loud, we could not hear each other. We’re not sure if we will return.

Atmosphere was nice with great live music. Appetizers were delicious, and drinks were good too, but the main entree was not. I ordered a stake medium rare and was delivered well done. I returned it but by the time it came back all the people at the table were done with their food and the sides were cold. Was disappointing that a restaurant of that caliber cannot get a stake order done correctly.

Be careful when reserving. I booked a reservation at 8:00 was there at 8:06 because the valet line and the hostess cancelled my reservation without calling or notifying me (the guest). Luckily the manager was able to let me sit. Hostess was rude and had a snobby attitude but the waiter was great.

We had Sunday brunch and were very satisfied with the experience. Tables were sufficiently far part and waiters wore masks for safety. We had a shrimp avocado toast and a short rib Eggs Benedict, which were tasty with reasonable portions.
As a bonus, the live pianist Michaelangelo came on at noon - he was excellent!

Do be aware that this restaurant is on the upper floor of Sakes Fifth Avenue. During store hours you can enter through the sales floor but before or after, you should park in the Purple lot to get a direct elevator to the restaurant. If you park elsewhere, you need to walk around outside to find the exterior entrance which is adjacent to Sage Road.

I visited this restaurant with some friends for Houston Restaurant Weeks. I had the lobster bisque, angus steak, and the key lime pie. There was a little mixup regarding the steak’s level of doneness, but they made it right and it tasted great. The key lime pie and mixed berry topping was a little tart for my taste, but the delicious Morgan mule made up for it. Will definitely visit again.

The ambience is very beautiful; the décor was bright color and they also had live piano performance. We ordered 2021 Houston Restaurant Week brunch menu; the food quality was good; they even included soft drink or ice tea option in the HRW menu; overall value was excellent. My friends and I enjoyed it a lot.

We were looking a place for a nice and quiet lunch with our almost 90 year-old mom near Galleria. 51Fifteen was an accidental but excellent discovery. The live piano music added elegance and charm from another era. Service was attentive and our waitress was excellent, a welcoming contract to many short staffed restaurants these days. Will definitely go back.

Great romantic place to enjoy glasses of wine and cocktails. Enjoyed the live music and food was perfect. Started off with the calamari and entrees were the 8 oz filet with sides of asparagus and mashed potatoes. Will be visiting multiple times. Great service!

The food was very good as usual. Unfortunately, the service certainly was not on the same level. Our waiter was decent, not great. However, when we first arrived (with a reservation), we were being seated and requested a table over in the corner near the window and we were seated at that table. The hostess came back and said that table is reserved for someone else and we have to move.
I understand having a reservation and that should mean you will get a table, but to reserve a specific table is not something I am aware of doing. The guests for that table came in about 45-60 minutes after we sat down and there were only 2 guests, the same as my party. My guess is that this was a case of the manager's friend coming in and wanted a nice table. This practice should not be at the expense of other guests that are requesting the table.
Since that table was by the window, we were not the only ones inquiring about sitting there. I witnessed at least 3 other parties asking to sit there and being turned down because it's "reserved" for someone else.

The steak was tough and covered with sauce. The menu did not indicate that sauce would be on the dish. Total reverse eating experience from last experience.
