Eloise Nichols Grill + Liquors
Well done but never overdone, where drinks are a food group, late-night is a staple, and quality is a given. Come when you can and stay as long as you’d like.
Please call the restaurant for parties of 9 or more to make reservations.
Reservations are not necessary for Saturday and Sunday brunch. It is suggested that larger parties call the restaurant ahead of their arrival.
Ribeye was well done and not medium as we ordered it. Despite their happy hour menu being clearly posted on their website, we were told they changed their happy hour menu and were charged full price for our drinks with no advance notification. Brussel sprouts were the only standout dish of this meal, otherwise the entire experience was very disappointing.
We had to wait way too long for our food to be prepared, and while our waiter was pleasant enough he was not nearly as attentive as he should have been. I had made reservations online indicating it was a special occasion for my sister’s birthday. The waiter did not present options for a birthday dessert until he was asked.
Such a lovely afternoon with yummy food and great wine! One of the best places in the city!
Excellent food and even better service!
Food was marginal and the waiter was totally put of it, even admitted he was not on that morning.
Michael provided great service. The food was delicious. It was an easy relaxed place for a business lunch.
This is my favorite place to brunch! Probably the best Bloody Marys in Houston. The chicken & waffles are to die for! So many great plates to choose from. I’ve never not enjoyed what I ordered. Happy Hour is also Fantastic!!!
The interior of this Grill is very inviting as is the service staff-- one feels instantly welcomed. The service was very good-- our server was well informed and checked on us just the right number of times.
We were there for brunch and the menu had many interesting items on it and I'm afraid we didn't chose that well-- we started with Gulf oysters and they were OK but not that well shucked, the chicken caesar salad was basic-- although the toasted chickpeas elevated it to a more interesting flavor. The Toad in a Hole sandwich had delicious cheese but the egg wasn't runny (as I think it should have been) and although the bread was probably the traditional choice (a soft white)-- it just didn't give the dish any flavor. The craft cocktails were quite tasty.
We will definitely come back because this place has potential and I'm pretty sure the dishes we didn't order were a bit tastier than those that we did order.
Loved it! Outstanding service friendly and attentive waiter. Quick lunch service which came in handy.
Awesome food service was excellent both at the bar and the table. Just a great experience all around. Definite return to place.
Our server seemed very overwhelmed. Took forever to place our order and even longer to get our food. Oysters were over priced and poorly prepared. Disappointing birthday meal.
Absolutely love this place! Have had great food and great service everytime!
Great food and great wine selection.
Food was ice cold, asked server to microwave and still cold
Very pleasant. Will be back.
Great for a business lunch. Service was great and it was quiet enough to talk.
Love the food
It was very nice. Would go again................................................................;
There was a big lag between our appetizer and entree. No explanation given. The food was great but we were starving when it arrived so that might factor in.
It was very good dining experience. Food was delicious and the service was great. It is loud which would be my only complaint.
This was my first time having brunch at the restaurant and I was not disappointed. The food was excellent and our waitress Arlene was very patient and attentive to us. I would definitely return for brunch again.
We came here for Bday celebration. The food was pleasantly great. The Betsy’s favorite pasta, shrimp & grits, and the Joe’s hot chicken were just delicious and fresh ...! The service was a five star treatment. They have a great collection of bourbon and whiskey. The service was a five star treatment. Our waiter.. Eric and his team were totally awesome , attentive, and very nice!
I will go back, but don't think I realized the menu was so similar to Adair's. If I want Adair's food, I can go to Adair's. If you can update the menu, that would be great!!!
The place is great. I had the Brüssel sprout appetizer and a Health Bowl with Salmon. I also enjoyed a rye based Old Fashion from the bar. The service was good, and for its location in the city, I’d say this place is a gem given the pricing and the quality.
We went for Houston Restaurant Weeks, and were not disappointed. Meals were delicious, and drinks were tasty. Our waitstaff was excellent. Ambiance was great and wasn't crowded for a Saturday night at 8pm. Definitely recommend.
This was my second visit to Eloise Nichols and the food was great both times. We participated in Houston Restaurant Weeks menu. This place is fast becoming a favorite.
Loved this place. Cocktails were decent, but not crazy amazing. The food, service and wine, however,b were spectacular. Thoroughly enjoyable date night (though it does tend to get a bit loud)
Sat for 30 minutes without any service. Left with other couples who were not being served.
Food was not good. Salad had no taste and shrimp and grits were so salty I could not eat them. They were kind enough to accommodate me with another option from their Restaurant Week menu, however the replacement porkchop was tasty but very overcooked. I will not be returning to this restaurant
The food was delicious and our server was excellent and very attentive. I got the shrimp and grits and my husband ordered the pork chop. I ordered a delicious drink that came in a cute brass pineapple. My only question is I think the name is a misnomer- there isn’t a selection of liquors and not much grilled. But still a nice place. I feel like it’s a perfect place for girls night out or lunch or brunch.
We’ve been meaning to check out ENG+L for some time and finally made it for Houston Restaurant Weeks. It was outstanding. Food was delicious. Service was great—Berenice was very friendly and attentive and made a great wine recommendation. The other staff were also attentive. We’ll definitely be back.
Great food and excellent service. First time dining here and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Brunch was great with a cool vibe.
Dined on the HRW menu which was very tasty! Our server must have been new, as he kept asking us the same thing over & over. Then he broke the cork off in our wine bottle. You were kind enough to replace it, thank you. I will be back. Thank you for participating in HRW.
Enjoyed a nice lunch!
Amazing service as always!!
The food was very good. The drinks were ok. Our service was subpar. The waiter was rude, not helpful with questions about the menu, and impatient with us. It also seemed as though the establishment nickel and dimed us charging us extra for making a martini dirty and requesting to see an ID to prove it was a birthday celebration for free desert. We also sent back a drink and were charged for it, which I've never experienced before. Won't go back.
Their happy hour is not that great.. No menu , you have to ask about happy hour specials.
We came on a Saturday for lunch not aware that the menu was brunch only. We were not really wanting brunch meal but looked for other offerings. We were disappointed that there was not much to choose from that would not be brunch. Several of us got a burger and another got shrimp and grits. What we had was good but wished we had a bit more of a choice that was not brunch. We could understand that brunch would be perfect for Sunday.
