    Previous visit to Bistro 313 have been 5-star all the way! Last night's visit was sub-par . . . which was extremely disappointing because I was dining with two friends who had never eaten there . . . and actually didn't even know Bistro 313 was there until I invited them and made the reservation. Upon arrival, there was NO ONE in the Bistro. We waited approximately 5 minutes for a hostess or just anyone to greet us. I decided to give my friends a tour of the Bistro and a host just happened to come out of the kitchen area and asked us to go back to the hostess stand which was really awkward, Again, there was NO ONE ELSE in the restaurant. Our waitress came to take our drink order and was visibly annoyed that we only wanted water . . . seriously. And from that point on she just seemed to be contentious. I assured my friends that this customer service was no typical of Bistro 313 . . . but I'm just afraid they were not buying it . . . She was so condescending -- with NO ONE ELSE even dining there. Eventually a 4-top was seated and their waitress was exceptional at taking care of them . . . they were drinking wine . . . so maybe that was the difference. I don't know but I left really sad for my friends. When she brought the check, my friends informed her (for ME because I just didn't want to even talk with her . . . ) that the appetizer item I ordered did not ring up at the HAPPY HOUR price. She proceeded to explain to us that it was the correct price and that if I had wanted a "side" of that it would be less. She went so far as to go get a menu to make her point. She was not correct and basically snapped back that the register should have done that for her. I don't know your system, but what I do know is that if $4.50 is worth offending adult women . . . you have a problem. NOTE: I was there last week and had an amazing time, as usual. So I'm thinking SHE is your problem, not Bistro 313 itself. I sure hope so.

    We absolutely would like to speak with you to get additional information and, hopefully, find some resolution for you and your guests as this is not a typical Bistro 313 experience. I will be sending you a private message with my contact information. Thank you for bringing awareness to the situation for us.

    They had my table set and waiting when I came in. The presentation of the food was really nice, my friend had a fish plate that honestly looked too pretty to eat. The turkey was fresh and the croissant was so buttery and flakey to perfection. I chose fruit as my side and it was such a nice assortment. I really enjoyed my lunch there today and we plan on returning.

    Snapper, chicken piccata, spinach salad, and a bruschetta appetizer with goat cheese were all very good. The martini ordered by one guest (blueberry lemon I think) was very good and also had a great presentation in the glass. We often frequent Bistro 313 due to the consistent quality of food, impeccable service and great ambiance. It is a cozy environment, quiet when not crowded and moderate when full. I highly recommend!

    We were there Sunday to celebrate my mom’s 60th birthday. The food was good but I was very disappointed with the service. Our waitress was nice but extremely inattentive. I don’t believe she ever told us her name. We were literally the only table in the restaurant and we had to get up several times to ask for things like water refills, forks etc. We could see the waitress standing just inside the kitchen door so we got up to ask for things like forks, water refills etc. I brought a cake for my mom and I gave it to the hostess upon arrival. I had it in a cardboard box for transport and attached candles to the lid of the cake. When I asked the waitress to bring out the cake for desert she literally brought me the cardboard box to the table. No lit candles, nothing. I had to take the cake out and ask for a lighter. The waitress brought me a knife to cut the cake, we had to use the small plates we had leftover on the table to eat with and my sister had to get up to ask for forks. As someone who worked in the industry for almost a decade, I am extremely disappointed. It was clear the staff was done for the day and ready to close.

    We had the Houston Restaurant Week menu. Everyone enjoyed their food. The air was a little warm, but they had a fan running. And it smelled like chlorine, assuming that was coming from the spa.

    Two of 4 of us ordered steak from restaurant week menu and they were not medium rare. One was medium well - well and it was replaced with a rare steak. Cocktail was slow to be served. Not their best Thursday night but all other times I have dined there have been very good experiences. Will go again.

    The worst experience I’ve ever had at a restaurant. I was the first of my party to arrive. I was never greeted by a server. After 20 minutes I asked the hostess to get our server. Second friend arrived, server came to take our drink order. Never saw server again. Hostess brought two waters. I never got my drink. Third friend arrived and hostess took our order. Third friend never got her water. The tables next to us arrived after we did got their food. We never got our food. Nobody checked on us. There was nobody to complain to. After 1.5 hours we found the hostess to tell her we were leaving. No apology.

    Went for HRW. Walked in from the Spa entrance and not acknowledged, short staffed and told to sit wherever, so no reservation needed. Waited 30 mins after first course for second course. Food tasted okay for a brunch, but the cheap decor and poor service was very disappointing.

    We waited for 45 minutes with just water- no drink order, no menu order and when we asked a waiter for help (after they already served 2 tables after us) they snapped at us and said they were busy. So we left and gave our 8 top to a restaurant that appreciated our business.

    We arrived feeling confused. Their website says they're open 9 AM- we arrived at 10 AM for our reservation which we booked via OpenTable. It was closed/locked so we were about to leave and the bartender said they were open. We were handed the standard menu. I reserved via OpenTable and was asked if we wanted standard or restaurant week menu. I selected restaurant week menu. The bartender had no clue what we were talking about... she took a while and brought us the restaurant week menu. The bartender is a bartender. She is not a good waiter.... she was clueless and slow to response. The food was great. The burger was amazing. The goat cheese crostini was great. The donut holes were good but that was not anglaise sauce - it was too liquid and white. The hashbrowns with my migas were not crispy as advertised in the menu. I would give this place a try again to see if things improve before recommending it to others. if this business is hosting a restaurant week, they need to have their act together.
