This restaurant is the all around best restaurant in town. Great menu, atmosphere, not to stuffy, can come casual or upscale and nice wine selection.
Great location to dine before or after a play. Our first time there. Very attentive waitstaff. Very comfortable chairs. My trout was well prepared. My wife's red snapper was very dry. Overall, we think they merit another visit.
As always, food was outstanding and service was top-notch (ask for Nic).
Salmon salad: nothing green, only cucumber and radish, least nutritious salad ever, way too expensive for what it constitutes
Beautiful atmosphere, attentive service and fantastic food! Great for a business lunch, a romantic evening and of course before the main show.
We went to see the show at the hobby center, and we decide to try the restaurant for the first time. Service was attentive and food was delicious. We are definitely coming back for more.
Pre-show dinner with family and friends before the performance.
we always get superior service when we go to Diana but Maurice was above and beyond! he was wonderful. the food was wonderful. the whole experience made our evening memorable in the best possible way
We enjoy coming to Diana before every play. We always request bar top dining; it’s the only way to go. On this night, Jonathan was bestowing his expertise (i.e. training 😃) on Sarah. They were both so friendly & engaging, as well as consummate professionals. Water glasses were always topped off without us even noticing and the courses/entrees were delivered at a good pace.
Thanks so much for such a wonderful dining experience, Jonathan & Sarah! We look forward to seeing both of you again soon.
Artista raised the bar high for great food at the Hobby Center. Diana's was very underwhelming...we ordered a steak salad for lunch and it came out with 3 pieces of lettuce and three thin shavings of beef that was cold and lacked taste. There was nothing special about the bread...kinda tasted like it was a day old or so and from the corner gas station (stale). We were highly disappointed at the food, the choices, and the prices for the food (in that order). Oh, and did we mention it was EMPTY? Diana American Grill is going to have to step it up to be remotely competitive with what Houstonian's are used to regarding food!
Quick lunch before the show, we were really because of the rain, but service attentive and fast enough to make it on time for the show.
like always very good service and quality food. my favorite restaurant for lunch.
We had a great lunch at the hobby center. Our soups and main dishes were really flavorful. Close walk from the office in a quite atmosphere.
Benny was our server and he was very attentive. Our food was wonderful and its so convenient to be in the Hobby Center before a performance. Our only "beef" was that everything came so fast, we had lots of time to kill before the play. Next time (and there will definitely be a next time), we will schedule closer to the performance.
We went before a play and timing was good. A little pricey for the food but overall good.
We were a party of four and everyone enjoyed their meal. My husband particularly enjoyed his prime rib. My trout could have been fresher; a little fishy tasting and not very moist. The service was very good and we received our food quickly I after ordering. We really liked our after dinner coffee drinks.
Our pre-show dinner was outstanding! Especially thankful to our waiter, Oseas, for confirming choices that were gluten free. The mushroom soup, crab and avocado salad and prime rib were excellent! We will be going back again soon!
Love the new interior design. Food and value was excellent and our server, Sebi, was wonderful- attentive and lovely.
Mushroom soup was great!
Cold bread with ice cold butter not appetizing. Made reservations for both Saturday matinees in March. First of March wasn’t impressed with food. Drinks were good. Second experience food not great and drinks were horrible. Will not eat there again.
Today was just perfect. Had the soup which in my opinion is what Diane does best. Tried their filet mignon. It was delicious! Also, our server Angelina was the best. Super competent and made our meal enjoyable.
I enjoyed my pre-show lunch at Diana American Grill. The service was good, the wine list long enough. The choice of food was somewhat limited. We were use to the pre-fix menu that the previous restaurant had for pre-show. The choices were.......... ok, but not great, nothing really innovative. The food was brought out VERY quickly, which you don't normally expect when doing fine dining. We were sharing a bottle of wine so our lunch drug out some more then some of the tables around us. We missed the platen chips from the previous restaurant too.
Overall, it was ok since it's right there and you need to eat before the show anyway. I probably wouldn't go if I was not going to the show. We did once eat at the previous restaurant when we were in down town for something else.
This was the second time my husband and I have dined at Diana American Grill. The first time we were not excessively impressed but decided to give it a second chance. Much to our surprise we were delighted with the food, service and ambiance. We will definitely go again.
Worth a visit if you like good meat and seafood Service level was very good Wine selection by glass was pleasant
Great lunch, like always at Diana. We had this time the French dip and the salmon salad, and we try for the first time the cream brûlée. Service was attentive and not intrusive.
Where to begin... The location is at The Hobby center downtown, the cold air almost made me give up searching for it. Luckily we didnt, because my taste buds were in for the surprise of my life. The lobster devil eggs were recommended by our waiter and they are must try. The surf & turf topped with lobster. Our steak was the best steak my husband and I have ever had. If you order dessert be prepared to share cause the helping is more than accommodating.
We always enjoy our pre theater meal at Diana’s. It is convenient, great food and a wonderful ambience. Will continue to go back.
Upon arrival we viewed the restaurant was filled with theater patrons anticipating an evening of entertainment. The staff, food selection and service at Diana American Grill did more than compliment the night's experience. We were really delayed in traffic and late for our reservation. ( not the way to begin a relaxing night out). Fortunately, with the efficient and prompt service we received we were able to take our theater seats before the lights were dimmed. The crab-avocado salad was so tasty and the to-go cups for our beverages was a winner.
Nice evening of dinner and a great show. A perfect Houston night.
Angie our waitress was wonderful, she was really professional and knowledgeable about the menu and recommendations for us.
Excellent experience-good food--especially tasty sourdough bread, great service and because it's in the Hobby Center it is very convenient to just pop into the theater for the show.
Likes the renovation to the previous Artista space. Ambiance and noise level are good. The food seems overpriced -- $9.75 for a bottle of still water??!! While Diana American Grill is convenient for theater patrons, there are other options for fine dining downtown.
Wonderful time with the wifey before the play.
Good and service was great
This restaurant has a wonderful view of downtown Houston and is a quiet haven for a business lunch. Definitely my go to place.
Perfect location for lunch, just a couple blocks from my office, a more quite and relax atmosphere than the tunes.
Food was delicious and my special request was met!
The frid were amazing!
This was a beautiful restaurant and a wonderful meal. The restaurant is warmly lit with soft lightly and comfy banquets and tables. Beautifully decorated. And the food was phenomenal. Our servers were attentive.
Definitely a great place for a fancy dinner or date night. There were lots of couples there that night.
Great service and delicious food. Business meeting at the restaurant. Everything was spot on.
Great Restaurant! I always sit at or in the Bar...same great service with a less formal and more personal feel. The food is top notch and always perfectly prepared.
