The location was perfect, a very short walk to the symphony at Jones Hall. It was inside an office building, so it took us a few extra minutes to locate it. Our waiter was ok, but didn’t know the answers to our questions (where are the oysters from? what kind of vodka do you have?); he had to be prompted to go find out the answers.

Had dined at this location before and had a relatively good experience. Food and service this visit however was incredibly disappointing. Worst part was, none of the staff seem interested whatsoever in customers enjoying their dining experience.

Good was great. Ambience is nice, was not very busy which we liked. Service was ok. Overall, it was a nice experience. Will definitely be back next time we are in downtown!

Unfortunately they were having staffing issues that night but the food was too good not to return and hope that they have been able to sort the staffing issues. To be fair, there a few businesses that are not having problems finding any employees, let alone GOOD employees. I would still highly recommend this restaurant and we will go back.

Its not like they didn’t have the staff either. A few times during the dinner we didn’t have spoons or knives and it took awhile to get them. Also it was very cold in the restaurant and when I asked them to warm it up, they said they couldn’t because there were no engineers in the building. It’s nearly impossible that a big downtown building does not have a 24x7 engineering so I don’t believe that. If they can improve the waitstaff and attention to the tables, this will be a great place.
