Great atmosphere, great food. Friendly staff, hostess was polite, and nice. Would recommend for a nice night out in Downtown.
Friendly staff all around! Amazing brunch! Food is amazing and so are the drinks. Hope the live music will return soon!
Loved the ambiance.. Sara our waitress was awesome.. We sat well beyond our allotted 1.5 hours with no issues. Will definitely be back..
I like the ambiance and the staff was friendly too.
Steak night thursday was excellent and a fantastic deal. Also great selection of bourbon and gin
The place is cute enough but it’s so open and tables are VERY close together. You’ll definitely be getting to know the people sitting next to you. We picked this place because it was on some best restaurants in Houston lists and I’m not really sure why it’s included. Food was mediocre at best. We were very hungry and plates are small so we ordered a lot. Two appetizers were the bread basket (all very dry) and the spinach dip which was fine but the things it came with were stale/bad. Entrees were filet with corn and fries and a salmon Caesar salad. The corn came with Mayo from a squeeze bottle squirted in a ring on top. Bizarre. Fries were straight up terrible. Shoestring and tasted like nothing. The proteins we ordered were well cooked but also totally average and the bill was over $75 for all that. Won’t be returning.
The cheesesteak egg rolls were phenomenal. The drinks were amazing.
Our server, Cetera, was excellent. The only really odd thing was there’s no coffee on the menu... we had time for a cup with dessert before the symphony but were told “we get our coffee from next door and they already closed”.... hmmmm.... never had that happen before. Otherwise a good experience.
Great waitress. Ribeye wasn’t fantastic. But, the sides and appetizers were great, the ambience is nice and it is the perfect place for dinner before a concert or a play.
I’ve been to Hearsay multiple times..and plan on going back. However, this time there were a couple issues that normally don’t happen there. One thing is that we waited quite a long with empty glasses before we received new drinks. And second, I ordered the chicken fried steak and it was quite cold. I had to dip each bite into the gravy (I ordered on the side) and mashed potatoes to give it some warmth.
Definitely not as good as it used to be before pandemic. The food quality and wait staff are not as nice or professional as previous trips.
Food server venue were all wonderful and well worth the price. Only complaint was it was really cold but I warmed up after two delicious margaritas 😊
The food was good and the service was great! Our waitress was very nice and knowledgeable and was able to recommend some good choices. We had a reservation and were seated right away and the food was served in a timely manner. I had the Chicken Melanesse and the Steak Eggrolls, both were delicious! Will definitely visit again!😊
Great spot. Lowkey. Nice drinks and good food. Recommend
Lovely brunch! It’s a little loud given the acoustics of the restaurant, but that’s what makes it so charming- the high ceiling, brickwork, chandelier, everything. The cheesesteak egg rolls were scrumptious. We had mimosas (with moth orange juice and grapefruit juice). As main courses, the chicken (expertly seasoned) and waffles were hearty (almost a whole chicken with the waffle). The crab cake Benedict was extremely tasty. Highly recommend.
Great times and great brunch item
The atmosphere had a nice vibe to it, but the service was terrible. It took 30 minutes to get served drinks. I had to call our waiter over multiple times so we could order. The food was very low quality. I got a filet mignon and it was probably the worst steak I have ever had. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone because of poor service and the low quality of food.
This place is perfect for a first date or celebrating a birthday and anything in between. The ambience is great. I had the waygu cheeseburger myself and it was amazing. The service was great. Our food came out fairly quick. I will definitely be coming back.
Food was good as always but it seemed like the weighted forgot about us a few times.
My experience was pretty good. me and my boyfriend went on a date and we are young and were treated differently than the couples around us but that’s to be expected.
We loved Hearsay, and look forward to coming back soon. Thank you for such great food and service!
Wonderful place to catch up with friends. Food was delicious.
Good food. Outstanding drinks. Had a brand new waiter who made a few mistakes but it was fine. I would definitely go again.
The appetizers were not good. The calamari and shrimp were terrible. The crackers for the tuna were old and soggy. The Caesar salad was also old, leaves were brown and should have been thrown out. The chicken was dry and burnt. The only good food served from our 4 appetizers and 4 main courses was the burger, which was delicious and cooked as asked for, and the cup of poblano soup.
Great experience! Was a bit upset that they no longer have crab cakes, but the manager made up with it by offering the birthday boy a birthday shot. Great service and great food, we would definitely be back again!
OUR SERVER SHANTE WAS VERY HELPFUL AND PROVIDED EXCELLENT RECCOMENDATIONS
The most exciting thing was the Veggie menu! As a vegetarian I couldn't find a restaurant besides this one that accommodated my dietary preferences. Great music and great service by Maxine!
Visiting Houston and this was on our list to try! Some of the best food we had while in town. We will be back
Food was delicious!
Great place for dinner and drinks. My wife and I shared the pan fried red snapper. The fish was not evenly cooked and the mashed potatoes were under seasoned.
Cool spot with an awesome bar. Went a couple of night and Adam and Austin were helpful and friendly. Food was great.
Let’s just say that this place wasn’t great at all. Food was terrible. Ordered the fried chicken special it was horrible, just a bunch of breading with zero flavor, pair that with the cold mash potatoes. Cedar plank salmon was ok but the shrimp was way to salty. Drinks over priced. We had 2 apps 1 salad, fried chicken, salmon with 2 draft beers and 4 martinis. $210 out of pocket. Chicken was $15 salmon was $20 salad was $12 apps $9 each. Thats how over priced those drinks are. Wouldn’t bother with that place ever again. Service was slow
Great food & excellent service
Our experience was amazing. Ashley was such a great server and bartender. She made recommendations and had such a sweet energy
We went for brunch on a Sunday afternoon. The ambiance was nice, waitstaff was friendly and the food was delicious. Would go back there again.
Albeit in the midst of a pandemic, this was a very pleasing and surprising joint. Good bourbon selection for those of us the American original. Food was wonderful and a good variety. Will be going back in the near future.
We had brunch. Food was excellent (candied bacon was especially good). Staff was fantastic - very attentive without being intrusive. We will be back.
Went for Steak night and had a great time with my family. Everything was cooked well and tasted delicious. Highly recommend the drinks aswell they were very tasty. Our server Jocelyn was great, very attentive and gave great suggestions. Hope we get her when we go again.
A fantastic combination of ambience, drinks and food. Highly recommend this wonderful place.
