For a relatively new restaurant they were impressive. Staff was friendly & food was priced right. The view was great & if you go, try to make it on a wed or sat as they have a GREAT MUSICIAN playing live music

The 2 stars of the night were Zoe, the bartender, turned into server because lack of servers on Saturday night. The second was the guitarist who provided music. Everything else was sub par. We had a reservation but had to wait 15 minutes for a table. Then we waited 15 more minutes for someone to greet us with water. Then Zoe appeared and apologized for them being short handed and that she would take care of us. Then food was ordered. Main entrees arrived before the appetizers. This was 40 minutes later. We told server to just bring both appetizers and main entree as entree was placed under warmer and drying out. 35 minutes later we inquired about dessert ordered. Let’s just say it was not lemon pie but key lime. One server said chef had changed 3 days ago etc. Thank you Zoe for making a horrible dinner as best as it could be.

We arrived at 550 for a 600 Saturday evening seating. It took them 15 minutes to seat us at an empty table in an auxiliary section. We ordered the evening special because we assumed it would be faster as we were going to a 730 show at Bass. Our waitress disappeared after we ordered. The bus crew brought our food. Another couple was seated next to us during this episode. They never were served so they left. The waitress reappeared at 710 so we were able to request that they bring our dessert and check. we had to take our dessert in a box. The food was pretty good but the waitress should be fired. it seemed like one of those restaurants where no one is in charge.

The menu and setting is beautiful. Noise level is low because there were hardly any other diners there. Service was pleasant but slow, especially considering how few guests were there. I hope both business and service pick up, the kitchen knows what they’re doing and the place is really nicely designed.

My friend and I took our daughters to eat here before the Nutcracker at Bass Hall. Food was excellent and Zoe, our waitress/bartender was great! Some of the best martinis I’ve ever had! Very unique location and was not crowded

We think Zoe is pretty great too and we are thrilled it was a great martini! We loved having you, your friend and your daughters here to celebrate the special occasion that is the Nutcracker! Please be sure to consider us again for all your Pre-Theater dinners! Cheers and Happy New Year.

Zoey our waitress was really nice. The food options were minimal. It was our first time and we were there to celebrate our engagement but did not see anything on the menu that interested us but the hostess understood and was so sweet and nice. Our drinks and the spinach dip were on the house

My wife and I had a quick dinner and drinks before going to Bass Hall. We loved the view, it was a little cool but, it’s December. The view was very nice and not much noise. We could see Sundance Plaza and the Christmas Tree. Overall very nice experience, first time here. We will definitely come back.

Atmosphere is great but app was not good (stale pita bread for hummus trio) which then changed our decision to eat there if something so basic wasn’t good. We went to another location for dinner and we’re glad we did.
Disappointed bc it has so much potential but you can’t have bad food and survive. Needs to be a bar with great cocktails and I think it would do much better.

The restaurant was great and obviously has a unique feel. However we had the coffee encrusted pork and it was very dry and not very good. We also had the spinach dip and it was ok. The oysters Rockefeller were very good. I would like to go back some time to try again, but I will probably be a little more selective in what I order.

Not a great place to go with kids, but be sure you have plenty of time. Service for a cocktail bar is slower than usual and don’t get a margarita if you’re used to TexMex marg’s. Their happy hour drinks are great and only ate some appetizers. Be sure to go at sunset or nighttime if you want the ambiance and views.

I apologize about your experience. We try our best to accommodate children, and while we do not have a dedicated children's menu we are more than happy to put something together that anyone can enjoy. I am so sorry you didn't care for our scratch made margaritas. We pride ourselves in being a craft cocktail bar with house made mixes and syrups, which can be a bit more time consuming. We appreciate your feedback as we are continually trying to improve all aspects of our restaurant. Cheers!

The gal working the inside high tops who was also handling the bar was AWESOME! I didn’t catch her name so I feel bad, because I can’t give her the props she deserves. I asked her to just make a beverage with vodka that she would like and it was amazing. We got one of the pizzas with beef and it was great, but next time we will ask them to hold the jalapeños because they were a bit too much. We will definitely be back soon.
