    It appears that because it was the last night of the running Broadway show and the restaurant might be closed for a week or so, the restaurant was out of may items and needed to substitute. The food was good and even the substitutions were fine, just disappointed. I also made note that it was my daughters birthday and it was not recognized.

    Before show dinner with friends. Second time upstairs and actually like it there. Easier for talking to one another. Service was great, minimal interruptions during our meal. Food was hot when served. Ordered dessert and coffee and not forgotten as with other servers in past. Everything was relaxed, good and made for enjoyable pre show dinner

    I ordered a 6 oz. filet of beef with vegetable melange and honey glazed carrots with carrot cake for dessert. The beef was perfect, tender, flavorful and moist. The honey glazed carrots were fine. The vegetable melange was the worst thing I have ever eaten in any restaurant for my entire life. The carrot cake was pleasant but dry.

    Service is ALWAYS slow. Really there is no excuse for that other than poor staffing. They know they will be busy on show nights. Food is always good. It is very convenient for seeing shows afterwards. It is a bit pricey.

    I had ab 11:30 reservation, made on line. The doors were locked at that time, but someone saw us and let us go up. The hostess was not ready and sent us and another guest back downstairs to wait. We weren't seated until about 11:50. Our waiter was AT BEST indifferent and curt. My friend's food was overcooked as if it had been under a warming lamp for some time. We were largely ignored by the waiter and had to wave to get him to bring us our bill. This was a very disappointing experience and we will not return here to dine. This is a pity because the restaurant is beautiful and so convenient when attending a performance at the Hobby Center.

    We have been here several times prior to a show. The waitress left us several times when we were ordering. We were going to order soup. She put our main course in and we missed having the soup. We asked for coffee which didn’t come w the dessert as asked. We asked her to take our pic when she brought dessert. She didn’t bring dessert. She left between each time w payment since we paid individually. Slowed our being able to leave. Disappointed w service. The food was cold as well as the rolls. Prime rib did have great flavor. Should have sent it back. She should have finished our order before sending in main course.

    The food was amazing from the appetizer to main entree to the desert. The Herb Crusted Prime Rib was by far the best I’ve ever had. The chilled spinach and artichoke dip was really good.

    Food was good. Believe I was overcharged for a glass of wine. Menu said 18 and waitress said that referred to the vintage year. I have never paid $36 for a glass of Pinot Noir.

    Our evening started off great with being seated at one of the circular booths with a great view of downtown. Our server was excellent, did not rush us, but was helpful with managing out time before the show. If you get there at 6:30 PM you will have plenty of time to make a show at 8:00 PM. Our server recommended ordering desert and drinks back at our table for intermission. It was awesome. Our drinks and dessert was waiting on us when we got back to the table. By the way, our food was really good and you could probably split the salads as they are large portions. I had the prime rib which was seasoned perfectly, and my wife had the shrimp and scallops. The prime ribs was by far the best value for what you get. Oh, and the Trace Leachy cake was about as good as I have ever had. The whole evening felt really special.

    We were a table of four dining before going to a show at the Hobby Center. Nice atmosphere, interesting food, and VERY comfortable chairs. The only downside was the room was a bit noisy, since the restaurant was quite busy due to the performance at Hobby.

    Our waiter was not good. For one thing we had to ask for champagne flutes as he wanted to serve it in wine glasses. The food was excellent but the noise level made it very hard to converse at a 4-top.

Definitely have the french fries, probably the best french fries we’ve ever had. Filet mignon was absolutely delectable.

    We have a group of 5 and have been to Diana’s several times over the years. Prior to last week our last visit was well over a year ago and we had stopped going as the food and service were terrible. Wanted to give it another try as it’s very convenient, should have known better. The food was mediocre at best and certainly not worthy of the price tag, Prime rib was at least 1/4 fat but it was cooked to a medium-rare as expected. The salmon dish was over done but thankfully, not dried out. Lobster Mac and cheese was delicious, the wagyu beef bolognese pasta dish was very dry and not very flavorful and finally, the shrimp and pasta dish was a total disappointment. The pasta was inedible but thankfully the shrimp was good. Doubtful we’ll be back. The service was good, our waiter was very attentive which was appreciated.

    The restaurant was closed and we received no warning. Since we booked the dinner to precede the concert in the same building and there were no other food choices, we fast walked three blocks to another location which gave us just a few minutes to eat. Fortunately the concert was amazing so that is what we will remember. Total fiasco on the part of Diana American Grill.

    My son and I dined prior to a show at the Hobby Center. The food was fine but not great. There were a few dishes that were particularly poor: the lobster mac n' cheese (looked like it had been sitting under a heat lamp for some time); the truffle fries (they had a coating on them that reminded me of frozen fries) and the mushroom risotto that came with my scallop/shrimp entree (it was very watery). For the food quality, it is very overpriced - our bill was $150 before tip and we did not have any alcohol. The service, however, was very good and it is a convenient location for dining before a show.
