    One server for the whole restaurant at lunch made it hard to get drink refills. The grilled salmon and hamburger were excellent. The crab cakes were mediocre and the ceasar salad dressing could have used more garlic, somewhat bland.

    Though we live in The Woodlands, this is the restaurant we visit on a regular basis. Last night, we noticed very clearly the team in action. Managers brought out food to diners, poured wine, helped clear. It was a ballet of dining support smoothly executed. No matter your title or table, everyone served, doing whatever was needed — with a smile. Though busy, the sounds heard were of conversation — not music blaring overhead. The energy was refreshing. The food was excellent. Only one tiny suggestion, bread seemed a little stale — don’t serve it! We had a lovely time! Thank you!

    The food and ambiance are worth every penny. Please do make a reservation as it's a small spot with first come first serve outside dining. The staff was very pleasant. I am guessing it was the manager who made it a point to come out and greet every table and check in about the quality of the food and service. That was very much appreciated. The portions were not overwhelming and so you could enjoy the savoriness of each bite. The bread pudding is the best I have ever tasted hands down. I will definitely be returning to try their brunch menu.

    Good pre-symphony meal - drinks well done, seated promptly, Tomato Basil soup for me and a Roasted Beet salad for her. We split the Crab Cake entrée and finished with sorbet and an espresso martini. Always a good option before an event in the Theatre District.

    Hi hopes for the Lancaster but once we were fully seated (3 top) we had to wait 20 minutes before they took our order. The waiter was not attentive and we asked multiple times to have our water glasses filled. Other tables seemed to be getting service so perhaps we just had a bad waiter. But with all of the food options downtown we may not be back

    Wine was very overpriced. Meatballs were good. Figs not as good as expected based on reviews I read. The worst part was the Caesar salad. Three large anchovy filets ruined it. After getting a bite of lettuce the filet was on, I could not eat anymore of the salad and that very strong fishy taste stayed with me for hours. Not a good idea to put those on the romaine.

    Overall, our experience was very good. I do not know what happened, but our service was not up to what we expect. Although we tried to get his attention, he rarely came to our table to "check in" after the initial seating except of course to take our food order. We tried to get his attention to get a 2nd cocktail and we finally waved him down. After our dessert, he brought the check and quickly disappeared, although we wanted an after dinner drink. After ~ 15 minutes we gave up, paid and left. In fairness, the tables around us raved about our server. This was also not the level of service that we observed around us. We do not know what the issues was!?
