Gregory and staff made our 32nd anniversary a memorable experience! Can't remember when we had better service.
Thank you Gregory, and the whole staff.
Food was excellent, and we drove from Cypress. We will be back!

In past we had wonderful meal here. This time was a disappointment. We had a scotch old-fashion and a gin and tonic for cocktails and both were strange. The old fashion was very sweet and the gin must have had some unusual tonic (and not much gin). Escargot appetizer was OK, but not great with a lot of salt. The wine we selected was very good and reasonably priced.
My lamb was ordered medium rare to the rare side and it came well done. For desert the creme brûlée was delicious---three flavors in separate ramekins.
Our server was great, his help and pace was very good. The problem this time was with the bar and the kitchen. Not sure if would take a chance in future. Considering the cost, one expects better.

Service was too rushed, lack of communication as to how to make for a tailored dining experience and the wine pairings were less than stellar.

I have had great experiences in the past !! The owner and our waiter John were amazing... we had a wonderful bottle of wine but I was VERY disappointed with the steak and fries.... very thin with a fat rim. Next time I will order something more creative...

Excellent food and service. Great views of the ‘open kitchen’ throughout the restaurant. Cozy, yet not cramped.

Win list is acceptable for the food choices, both French and American choices

Don’t pass on dessert. Take it home if you must, but much with a cappuccino
And an extra few moment in this fine French retreat.

Had the 7 course dinner and server forgot to ask how we’d like our lamb cooked. We prefer rare and so it was cooked more than we’d have liked. Otherwise a very delicious evening!

Had a girls dinner with artisans a few weeks ago. The meal was delicious and very enjoyable. Always love seeing Austin Hope on the menu. We tried a variety of appetizers - the beef Tartar was to die for as was the lobster bisque. None of us were crazy about the tuna appetizer. The scallop app was wonderful. Our service was very attentive and overall an enjoyable experience. The only thing I do want to point out is that due to Covid and distancing they’ve opened their special events space and we were seated back there - I think that took away from the ambiance of the restaurant and we would have preferred to sit in the main room.

This was our first visit - and based on this visit, we will definitely be back.

My wife used the HRW menu and selected a salad followed by the chicken scallopini. The latter was served with a well-prepared pasta.

I selected from the business lunch menu and had three courses: foie gras with a saffron poached pear, lobster tail with a tasty risotto, and opera cake (my wife enjoyed this).

The service was excellent, and we had a nice table in a quiet area of the restaurant.

Very enjoyable. Great find.

Always a favorite spot, but we did not enjoy Chris our waiter unfortunately. For our wine selection, we decided on a Chardonnay. My spouse pointed out the fact he favored his glass repeatedly during dinner. I ordered an espresso martini as usual, but this time it seemed sweet. To be polite we asked for it to go. Chris brought it to go and said “here’s the kiddie cup,” we were trying to be polite and take it to go, thought the kiddie comment was not appropriate. Chris was still tipped 20%.

Seated by the kitchen so great to see food being prepared.
Service was good. Portion sizes good (was full by the end).
A little overpriced but you pay for the experience.

It was ok but I called telling the host I was late for my anniversary and she told me it was ok. We arrived 8:20 pm and they told us they would not serve the chef’s course anymore. Food is great service isn’t.
