Guard and Grace - Houston
Guard & Grace’s website said it was open on Wednesday, July 22, 2020. Booked reservations through Open Table. Drove 25 miles, paid for parking and found out when we arrived they were closed. Absolutely pathetic.
Excellent every time! The Gnocchi is the best I have eaten anywhere!
We had a great first time event. It was a treat for our anniversary celebration. Waiter was very good, staff is attentive and the atmosphere was very nice.
We will be coming back, looking forward to sitting at the bar once the pandemic passes!
Our server Antonio was one of the best waiters we’ve ever had we definitely will be going back, the food and desert were amazing. Would recommend guard and grace to anyone interested in one of the best restaurant’s in Houston.
The server made some great recommendations and answered all our questions. The pace was relaxed where we could enjoy the meal and conduct our business
We tried the new steakhouse after reading reviews and looking at the online menu. The food was awesome! Steaks were delicious. Staff was very pleasant and responsive. However many of the items on the online menu were unavailable which was disappointing. The bar cocktails were very good but again the cocktail I wanted from the online menu was unavailable. I would go back there again with less expectations.
Delicious menu of creative dishes; thoughtful and delightful waitstaff; wonderful evening out.
We ate the filet mignon steak flight (prime, Angus, waygu) so fast we didn't take pictures...lol. (Who does a steak flight? Seriously?!? So cool.) The best dinner I've had in a loooooong time! Try it!
We first learned about Guard and Grace Houston at the Rodeo Uncorked! Best Bites competition. Sooooooo good! They opened in November. Really tough time to open a new restaurant. Please enjoy this amazing restaurant sooner than later...make a reservation.
Food was fantastic. Wine selection was great. Ambiance was perfect.
You could tell they were just re-opening after being shutdown due to Covid-19. They made sure there was distance and the staff all wore mask. The food was incredibly fresh and taste amazing. We were even comped a free drink when the bar took too long. Very personable hostess. It was our first time out in 3 months and it felt good getting some normalcy back.
Everything was perfect: the design of the place, the quality of food, the service, the music. We had a wonderful time and plan on coming back soon!
Great! Great! Great! Awesome! 100/10 would recommend
The food was good but they had a fire alarm test in the middle of our dinner which definitely disturbed our meal, I would have expected them to tell me that before we reserved or sat down so we would have expected it.
We had a great night out at Guard and Grace. The food was delicious, the wait staff incredibly friendly and helpful. Be adventurous and try their recommendations on good and drink - you won't regret it. It was very clean with hand sanitizer stations visible. It's very pretty inside. Come try it.
The food and atmosphere was great! The decor is modern and has a great ambiance.
Wood-fired grill here really makes a difference. Enjoyed the Alaskan King Crab appetizer followed by excellent steaks cooked as ordered. Chipotle smashed potatoes were great to share. Friendly knowledgeable service and attention to CDC guidelines.
Amazing experience! Everything was perfect- the food, the service, and the ambiance! Will definitely come back! Well done staff! Thank you for making my daughters graduation night perfect!
Well I felt it was very over priced for the food. Club music playing in the background. For two people, 2 drinks, 1 appetizer, 1 entree, 1 side ( not included with $100 steak) was right at $200
wonderful person-the best waitress We've experienced in a LONG LONG TIME
Excellent new steakhouse in Houston. The seafood and appetizers were just as delicious as the steaks. This is a wonderful well-rounded date night spot.
From the martinis, to steak and Brussel sprouts everything was amazing. Awesome service.
Excellent service and delicious food! We throughly enjoyed our dining experience.
Beautiful space, excellent service, terrific food at a fair price. A nice addition to downtown Houston!
My wife and I had a great time.
Our server was excellent and the entire staff was awesome.
The food was exceptional and we will definitely go back with our family and friends.
First time at Guard and Grace. Very nice place. The service was excellent. Felt like they catered to our needs. The food was excellent. The Alaskan Cod was amazing. Not what you would expect for a stake house. They have a great fusion of seafood and steaks with some original flavors. The filet was excellent as well.
Interesting menu choices - feels very modern. Grilled octopus appetizer and prosciutto flight were outstanding. Excellent wine list.
I absolutely love this restaurant. I eat here every day and they never disappoint!!
The service was top notch! The rib app was spicy but complimented our fish app that had pop rocks! The lamb chops were delicious! The bourbon selection is also very well rounded with lots of hard to find bottles
This place never disappoints!
We appreciate the great review!
We had a very disappointing experience at Guard and Grace. The reason it was so disappointing is because of the following:
1. Cocktail order incorrect
2. Had to send the cod entree back because it was obvious the fish was bad
3. Wine that we ordered to have with dinner did not come until after all our entrees were gone (including the second cod entree)
4. Had to track down people to fill our water glasses
5. Seemed like our waiter did not want us there and didn’t check on us but paid attention to the larger party sitting next to us
Came for a birthday celebration and everything was amazing!
Hi Kendall, so glad you had a great time celebrating your birthday here at Guard & Grace! We look forward to celebrating more special occasions with you soon!
Wedding gift certificate from my husbands amazing boss, and a pre Eagles concert dining experience. You can walk to Toyota center after. The menu had so many paths we had to forego some exciting options for another visit, we chose the right path! The appetizers, salad and entree were all amazing, menu changes so it will be different but you won’t be disappointed. The prices are high end, not gonna hide that point.. but worth it.
Beautiful restaurant! Love the open kitchen, ceiling decor and cocktails! We tried three apps - all yummy, but nothing stood out. For entree, we ordered the black cod & 4oz Prime Steak - the cod was flavorful and the winner. Unfortunately, the steak was under seasoned and needed more salt. The kitchen was slow and we waited a while between our apps to entree. The manger was very kind and made it right. Will be back to enjoy the ambiance & cocktails.
Hi Misti, We appreciate the great review and feedback! We are glad we were able to rectify the issue with the seasoning on the steak. We are always striving to improve, and look forward to serving you again very soon!
Great addition to the lunch repertoire in Downtown. Brings the same quality as their Denver location.
Thanks for the great review and we hope to see you for lunch - or dinner - again soon!
My third trip to Guard and Grace, highly recommend. Quail and Himachi for a starter appetizer is highly recommended. Everything I have tried is fantastic!
Hoyt our server was very knowledgeable and helpful when we ordered. Carl the sommelier did a fantastic job of directing us to very nice wines that complimented our meal.
Our third time to visit and while it is not the most inexpensive place to go to
it is good value for money.
Tim thank you for the great review! Look forward to your next visit!
Very nice. Delicious food. Great service
Date night! The truffle Mac and cheese actually tasted like truffle- really good. Hint of lemon in the Brussels sprouts- delicious! I liked that you could order a 4 ounce Filet or strip because I can only eat that much and steaks are not great leftover.
In a high rise but had valet parking starting at 5:00.
Glad you enjoyed your experience and thanks for the great feedback!
My Wife and I went there on date night, and I loved it. I had the American Wagyu Ribeye, and it was cooked to perfection - very unique seasoning, and charred outside, perfect medium rare. Everything was delicious, and the wait staff was attentive. My only complaints would be that we were sat at a tiny table when there were plenty of larger tables available/it wasn't busy, and that the bill was a choker. Over $300 for two people - one steak, one fish, two sides, one dessert, with one glass of wine.
