We are from New York in a business trip. We decide to try this restaurant because our Hotel room key had their name on it. Food was good, the steak salad needs a little more greens, but tasted delicious. Service was good. Music not to loud so perfect for business meeting.

Sadly, this restaurant will not last. The food is terribly expensive -- especially for lunch.

Couldn’t help comparing it to what it used to be - a place that served good food in an elegant but uniquely Houston setting. Without the Cordua touches, this is just another overpriced meatery, with mediocre, oversized food, an unimaginative menú, and a boring setting. No vegetarian options. Tasteless desserts. Best to skip it.

I hate to “complain” about fast service...but, we had 12:30 reservations and we just really want to pace ourselves for the 2:00 show. Food came out really fast and we were done by 1:15. So we just sat and visited. But the food was excellent. I had the trout.... very, very good!!!!!

Had dinner with a friend after seeing Waitress and it was fantastic! Our server was prompt and gave recommendations on the menu. We only had to ask for a drink refill once and that was at the end of our 2-hour meal. Food was delicious - we shared the pimento cheese appetizer as well as a crab and avocado salad. I had the prime rib special, which had a Swiss cheese sauce that was TO DIE FOR (and it tasted wonderful with everything!). Friend had the half chicken with roasted vegetables and it was juicy, not dry at all. We ended with a chocolate cake that could have been a tad bit more moist but was still the perfect ending to a grand meal.

100% would go back to this restaurant!

I was disappointed with the menu. They had advertised daily specials that sounded great, but we were told that the kitchen was out if them. This place just can't seem to get their menu together. However, I did try dessert and was not disappointed. The carrot cake was some of the most delicious I've eaten.

Deeply disappointed. Yes, Artista had grown redundant, so I was looking forward to the restaurant's rebirth and excited it was associated with Robert Del Grande. This is essentially a special event facility, there is no secret of which days a performance will be taking place at The Hobby Center. The first thing our server announced was that the daily special was not available. The drinks were rudely expensive, wine list nice. My entree was the steak salad. I was surprised the beef was cut in rather thick slabs with all the fat still on the edges (as the beef was cold, at least it was easy to trim). My companion, a notorious light eater, had the salmon salad and was still hungry! Score for the restaurant as we ordered the lemon dessert, which was delicious. The interior is still bright, thanks to all the windows, but the dull gray paint on the walls looks, well, just bad. Our next theater visit will not include Diana.

Beautiful restaurant, convenient for before theater dining. Food was good - it was lunch, so we had sandwiches. Tried the pimento cheese appetizer - had a little kick to it and was good, but we didn't care for the crackers it was served with. Pretty good on bread, though! We'll probably go again before the theater.

The only reason I come there is when I have theater tickets. The food isn't great and too expensive. They need a lighter menu for the noon theater crowd. Also something kid friendly.

We were there by 645pm, traffic was horrible. When we got to the restaurant we were seat it immediately.
Our server was very attentive, we were feeling a little rush, but then our server remind us about the show coming up at 8, so he was making sure we make it on time, we completely forgot that we were going to show..!! thanks oseas for the warning, we are definitely coming back for food and services.

We were looking forward to trying it as finally a new reataurant had opened but we were beyond disappointed. The staff was not trained and very unprofessional. I have not given a bad review but this was a dissapointment in every sense. The server was pouring sparkling water in a wine glass and my husband asked him to put it in a water glass, he responded ‘why, is it going to taste different?’...
