Loved the ambience and service was great (including wine recommendations from the sommelier). They were all personable and professional. Chef Holley came to the table to greet us (charming man). There were 4 of us and all of us loved our cocktail, appetizer and main course. Every one of the dishes was delicious (and each different). It was hard to decide what to order because everything on the menu was mouthwatering. We plan to come back so we can try some of the other dishes we missed. Highly recommend!

Came on Sunday 11:30a for brunch. Our waitstaff was incredible. We used to frequent this restaurant when it was open previously and occasionally it seemed short staffed which dramatically hurt the service. This did not seemed to be a problem on this visit. My wife had the shrimp and grits. She thought it may have been the best shrimp and grits she's ever had and she's a harsh critic.

Our dinners were amazing! They were beautifully presented, using inventive ingredients, and were absolutely delicious! I had halibut with lump crabmeat mixed with orzo & a little spinach & a light cream sauce. The Parker House rolls were a great beginning, and the apple bread pudding with vanilla ice cream, and some kind of wonderful chocolate cake, were the perfect ending.

The food was amazing. We had the crispy Thai red snapper. Incredible. Also do no miss the steamed mussels in a Thai curry broth. You will drink the broth it is so good. Beautiful dining room with two private rooms. The menu is not Thai but has fusion flavors in several of the dishes. Oh almost forgot to mention the gumbo. I’m always in search of great gumbo. I found it here!! Can’t say enough good things. We love Chef Holley. He comes out to the tables to talk to his guests. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. We will definitely be back again and again.

My sister and I took my mom for her birthday dinner on a Sunday. We were expecting a fine dining experience but they were serving the Sunday Supper instead (fixed price family-style menu on Sundays). We discussed whether to try to find another place or stay and give it a shot. Thankfully, we decided to stay and were SO glad we did. The food was amazing, and the service was equally good. We highly recommend Davis Street at Hermann Park. So delicious and friendly.

We have been big time fans of Mark Holley since his days at Pesce and excitedly watched for the opening of his new restaurant.
We loved our evening at Davis Street!

This place exceeded our expectations. The ambiance was great for sharing food and conversation with sounds of soft jazz playing in the background. All the food seemed enjoyable however my personal favorite was the Alaskan Halibut, Thai shrimp and roasted Brussels sprouts! I can not wait to go back! It’s a win win!

Love Chef Mark Holley as a person, as a chef creative and as a manager of people. His food is outstanding in its flavors, cooking process and presentation. His menu is varied enough to satisfy the foodie as well as the "picky eater". His young staff is well-dressed well-spoken, polite and helpful. My son worked for Mark 15 years ago, and I am well aware that he strives to create a family feeling among his staff. FInally, the ambiance of the new venue is lovely- table are far enough apart and the ceilings high enough to afford privacy and a reasonable level of noise such that you do not need to lean in or scream at your table mates to have a conversation.
Each dish that our party ordered was delicious- from the Thai mussels to the seafood stew. Whole crispy fish was a star as always, and the Cajun oysters were magnificent.
Highly recommended.

This was date night for Julie and I. I was really impressed upon entry to the restaurant, the host asked Julie are you dining with us and immediately asked do you have reservations under Reggie? We replied Yes and we were sat right away. Because I indicated Julie and I were celebrating a special date night on Open Table when I booked the reservation the waitress brought us a special bread appetizer with a unique pimento spread, seafood spread and picked okra, onion grape medley. Such a wonderful treat! The restaurant owner/chef Holley came by to greet us and later throughout the night the manager stopped by and we enjoyed a delicious Whole fried flounder with shrimp etouffee’ and hush puppies along with candid bacon on brussell sprouts. First class establishment, service and excellent food!

Always an awesome experience. We went on a night where they had live jazz and it just added to how amazing it was. Oyster Yvonne are my favorite and the halibut was to die for. My husband had the Wagyu Beef and loved every bite. I, of course, got a Penthouse View cocktail and we finished with the bread pudding for dessert. I will be back time after time. Chef Holley and his team are amazing.

Enjoyed my birthday very much, service and food were outstanding except for the late arrival of our wine bottle. Overall though it is a must visit restaurant when you are in Houston. The quality of the food is at a very high level with world class gumbo! Complimentary after dinner drinks for my birthday was a classy touch. Manager was attentive and very justifiably proud of their food and wine list! We will be back

We are so happy to finally enjoy Chef Holley’s new restaurant. The new space is beautiful and many of our favorite things are still on the menu. The whole snapper is still delicious and the Kim chi greens and fried rice that accompanied it were even better than we remembered. The NOLA still roasted oysters were also better than our memories. Service is excellent as well!
