Such a cool space, wasted on lackluster cocktails and food that could have been served at a chain restaurant. The truffle fries were basically McDonalds fries with a dusting of pre-shredded Parmesan and rosemary. The burrata salad was good, but not great. The kale and Brussels sprouts salad was over-dressed and the crab cake was straight from freezer to fryer. A shame, really, because this building and setting has great ambiance and would be a great place to go before a show, a game, or anything else that brings me downtown.
My wife and I recently got married at the courthouse in downtown Houston. We dined there after our vows.
Great ambiance and decor. Limited menu but great options.
What a great time celebrating Mother’s Day with my family.
Service was great, food temperature was luke warm at best.
I have been here a couple of times and had a good experience but this last time was terrible. My friends and I were seated up top and we had no clue who our waiter was. No one came to take our order for at least 15 minutes and no one came to get our drink order until the floor manager noticed we looked like we needed something. We also ordered bottomless mimosas and I had to ask multiple times for a refill. Once we got our food no one asked how we were doing or if we needed anything. This is the worst experience I've had at this restaurant.
2nd time we have been here for Sunday brunch. Awesome atmosphere in terms of decor and vibe. 12 dollar bottomless mimosas and reasonable prices on some really great food. Staff very attentive. Would go hear again countless times.
Service was sub par, food was burnt, not very flavorful, won't go back.
We came here for brunch after college graduation. The trendy yet classic atmosphere coupled with delicious and unique food combinations was a hit with both generations. I would come back for the Short rib eggs Benedict with bottomless mamosas if I wasn’t so excited to try everything else on the menu. We’ll be back anytime we have an e fuse to be in the Houston theater district.
Friendly and fast service. Had the fried asparagus as an appetizer. The sauce was great; however, really wish the asparagus was allowed to rest before plating (translation: super greasy!) Lobster risotto was great. Chicken pesto pasta had great flavor but was a bit dry.
I dined at Hearsay for brunch. Service and food was great. The lemon ricotta pancakes with blueberry syrup was fantastic. Mimosas were an excellent blend of champagne and juice...not too strong nor too weak. The ambiance was great. Management and staff are always cordial and attentive.
Had a great evening at hearsay - food was excellent. Very satisfied - A+
Outstanding place, lovely cuisine. An absolute must is the Sliced Rare Ahi Tuna and something that is really really really good is the Creme Brule, the best I have ever had in the US.
Seating arrangement is horrible. You are only inches away from the adjacent tables. It was so annoying when you have to listen to someone loud conversation.
We love Hearsay and will continue to return.
We had a great first time experience, food, drinks and service were outstanding. We loved the atmosphere also.
Great dinner with girlfriends before heading to a play. Decent wine list and lovely menu with options for all. The service was a little slower than I would have liked but good overall.
Like the old historic building. Was on a date, seated in cozy quiet loft. Was helpful with the menu, they have great eclectic choices, veg, etc. likely will return when downtown
Burgers were very good!! A little expensive for every day dining. 2 Burgers & 2 Beers was just over $48.00 before tip. Also had to pay $10 to park. Chicken & Waffles looked good. We may go back & split an order of that.
Service was great! Food was excellent! Quail w cheddar grits was phenomenal! Only downside is my coffee taste like tea! ( I’m not a drinker). But I do love my coffee so that was kinda a disappointment! But I would go back!
Awesome chicken and waffles
We enjoyed a great lunch/brunch before catching a Houston Ballet matinee.
Service was ok. Waiter was not attentive. Food was ok .. cold
Busy Friday night at a popular downtown venue. An below average dining experience. Stuffed Salmon was dry and not stuffed but rather drizzled the topping. Stuffed chicken was better but still dry. They KNOW how to make Risotto! I might repeat on a weeknight when it was slower.
We just had beers and some apps. Not a great selection on beers, but decent. Would like to come back for dinner.
I've been coming to Heresay on Sunday's for months, but the service is getting progressively slower and slower. I was in a party of two and we sat for 30 mins before even getting our drink order. We ordered the bottomless mimosas but the refill only came once. The server did not come back to check after delivering food, so I had to get up to get my own salt and pepper. The server took what seemed like days to bring our check after requesting it. I could see the server was preoccupied with other tables. Maybe Heresay needs more servers to fulfill the demand of customers.
Awful service - took us almost an hour just to order our food because our waiter disappeared. Bottomless mimosas are useless when they don't get refilled! Saw the waiter twice over two hours. The music downstairs was so loud that we couldn't hear each other speaking upstairs so we spent the whole brunch either yelling across the table or sitting in silence. The table next to us broke a glass and it shattered all over and under our table, but no one ever came to clean it up.
Nice atmosphere for bar food in theater district. Good pre-theater spot.
As a fall back and go to restaurant, Hearsay's is usually very solid with really good food, service and a friendly place. Our reservation was for 7:30 P.M. but our table was not ready until well after 8:00 PM. Service / food etc. as usual was very good. We sat at the bar and ate appetizers while we waited as we were quite hungry. We were not the only folks waiting for tables.
The food and service was amazing for Brunch. The live band adds a great ambience as well while dining.
Great spot. Never disappoints.
Loved the food and cocktails! The shrimp tempura was delicious, and the Mac and cheese was amazing as well.
Really like the poblano soup as well as the burrata salad. Beer selection is ok but could be improved. Service was good and prices a bit high
The Host was curt upon greeting us and escorting us to our table. There was no personable interaction at all.
The server was inattentive throughout the majority of our meal. He didn’t bother to check on us at all. And it seemed like we were “a hurry up and get out so the real customers can dine here” type of table to the host and server.
I will not be returning to Hearsay for a long while.
A group of my girlfriends and I visited Hearsay Gastro for Sunday brunch. The everything was great from the food, to the ambiance and live band. Service needs a little work. Specifically, our server Dexter who was not very attentive at all. Although he did provide us with a round waters after being seated, he never introduced himself as our server. After about 20 minutes, we found ourself a flagging down another server in passing to ask ask who was assigned to our table. It was Dexter. Mind you, he told us his name AFTER he was summoned to our table and we ASKED for it. The food was great and the music was fantastic....a little on the loud side but still fantastic. On a on a positive note for Dexter, he kept our glasses filled with bottomless mimosas. But when it was time for the check...again nowhere to be found. Overall, I absolutely enjoy HGL and won’t allow one bad experience to change my rating of the restaurant. I would definitely recommend to any of my friends.
My previous experiences here were always top-notch. On this occasion, it was only fair. The principal problem was the lack of wait staff attention. Our waiter only came to check on us when we were forced to flag him down. Had to hunt down our own missing silverware and then a steak knife. The cocktails were good but small in volume. Others at my table enjoyed their steak and salmon. My pork chops were on the chewy side.
Would give it another chance, but service needs to improve.
Great food and wonderful atmosphere. Love this place!!!
Food, service, and ambiance very nice. Restrooms were well kept. It was a bit on the noisy side (but it was St. Patricks night).
Great food and great service
If I use the ability to leave a 6-Star review I can say that I wouldn't hesitate, not even for a moment.
From fantastic, and prompt service even during busy hours, to beautiful seating a full story above the rest looking below at the bar as floor to 3-floor brick ceilings complete with a post-industrial aesthetic complete with a vertical hardwood piece surrounds you. This was the perfect environment to bring to impressive a date, or even your wife in my case.
Great food, as well as a great experience finished out the rest, but even if the food had been awful their innovative and delicious craft cocktails and general ambiance did the rest.
