    Such a lovely restaurant, beautiful decor and dark hues with splashes of flowers. Great food, drinks and service. We enjoyed the belly dancing show. The only con, felt a little warm but that could be a preference.

    Overpriced food that did not taste good, with very small portions. Much better middle eastern food can be found at a gas station food truck. Perfunctory service; waitress was quite irritating, constantly hovering and asking if she could take things away and interrupting us so many times that I felt I couldn’t talk to our guests at the table. Cocktails with very little alcohol. And not very important, but for a place that advertises on being Arabic, the first thing you see when you enter is a huge flamenco dancer painting which is Spanish. Overall not impressed with this place.

    We had a very early dinner so in truth it was very quiet. People began arriving around 8:00 pm . The restaurant has a great open space facing west grey.

    Food and service were amazing. My husband and I are vegan and the were extremely accommodating. They even made us a special, vegan version of grape leaves and stuffed zucchini and left the added oil off the hummus and baba ghanoush ( which they definitely didn’t need). Will definitely go back.

    I dined here for the first time with a friend. We were very impressed with both the food and service. Dee was our server and she was excellent! She did a great job; very hard working. We tried several menu items and everything was delicious! The baklava shrimp, octopus, and seafood gnocchi were standouts - very creative and delicious seasonings. Cocktails were also very tasty. Highly recommended. We will dine here again.

    Use to be one of my favorite places for food and drinks. Unfortunately, a lot of change as led to terrible results from our perspective. Food was cold, not fresh, and octopus was inedible. Manager tried to tell us she was surprised because no one else has complained. At the end of the day, we left hungry and felt bad for our waiter who under the circumstance did a rather good job, despite the fact we left hungry.

    I put in a request it was my mother‘s birthday and upon arrival the hostess were very nice as we got seated. It took about 10 minutes to get water and 10 to 15 minutes for the waitress to greet us. It took about 25 to 30 minutes to get a bottle of wine. The food was good. Presentation was good but the service was not worth. The price entertainment was amazing because you don’t find much of that in Houston. I love the music it was Valentine’s Day so it was a select menu which was fine. The food was great. But they need to have Serious training with their weight staff upon greeting just interactions how to speak with people. I go to many high-end restaurants and the service was definitely not there. It’s definitely worth going, but just make sure that you must have a lot of patience and time.

    My husband and I dined here for Valentine’s Day. I think this is one of those “Instagram“ type restaurants where it’s more about aesthetics than substance. The best part of our meal was the hummus appetizer, and the grilled chicken had good flavor. The beef had a weird, almost mushy texture, and we didn’t really care for the lamb. Everything could’ve used a little dash of salt. The service was good, and our waiter was attentive. I think this is a nice restaurant to go to if you want to get dressed up and have your pictures taken in front of interesting backdrops, but that is mainly it.

    The waiter messed up my order and gave me Tahini despite knowing that I was allergic to sesame. I had an allergic reaction thus really this was not a good restaurant experience. And they didn’t even compensate us for our meal which is absurd.

    First time at Albi. Can recommended for special occasions. Food was quite flavorful with excellent presentation and proportions just not too big or too small. Went early in the evening and noise was moderate but imagine would become livelier and noisier as night goes on. Lots of attention to detail on furniture and decor. Perhaps some table in center part of main dining were too close to each other.

    Awesome, food, service and presentation. Quirky atmosphere- kinda a cross between sleazy, cheesy, glitzy and odd - but don’t let that stop you from enjoying the food. A bit steep for Mediterranean food though

    This restaurant is absolutely beautiful inside. The ambience is awesome with the DJ and belly dancer. The staff is friendly, however service was extremely slow. We didn’t actually eat until almost an hour of being seated. Even out appetizer took 35 minutes to receive and it was simple hummus. The food was delicious but I feel it may have been sitting in the back for a while and our server just forgot to bring it out to us. Maybe that’s why it took so long to get to us. I also didn’t get a birthday desert with a candle like most restaurants do when you let them know you’re celebrating a birthday, and I expected from seeing their instagram page.
