Had an awesome date with the wife - always good service and pretty good value to quality of food - steaks were great
My friends and I were in town for the weekend and wanted to try Hearsay. We did not regret it. They have bottomless mimosas, which had my name all over them. They were the perfect proportion of champagne to OJ and my glass was never empty. I had the Hearsay burger, which was super yummy. The bun was one of the best I'd ever eaten. The truffle fries were yummy as well. My friends order the chicken and waffles but subbed French toast for the waffles. They raved about how well the chicken was seasoned. Another friend tried the tuna sandwich and got garlic mashed potatoes on the side. She too raved about how yummy it was. Next time I'm in town I'll definitely be back.
Being on the outer edges of downtown, walking to Hearsay for lunch on a weekday is a hike, but well worth it. The food is always fabulous and the service is always top shelf. Hearsay is a great place to dine with friends, co-workers and your special someone.
Amazing food, bottomless mimosas and great music!
I thought the atmosphere was very nice—the building has a lot of charm. The service was great, but The steaks we had were not worth the price. They were priced like a fancy steakhouse, but did not compare as well with taste and presentation.
Fantastic food. Creative interesting drinks. Our favorite place downtown.
The food and service was really great! Love the atmosphere!
Even though I had made reservations and arrived on time I was seated at the worst table in the restaurant by the restrooms! There were plenty of empty tables so I asked to be seated at a better table. I didn’t appreciate being treated this way! Won’t go there again!
fantastic experience ; the snapper was very good; side dishes were excellent ; excellent value as well
Good, however wine list very poor
Fabulous food and fashionable atmosphere. Bar area downstairs. We were seated upstairs where it was a bit less lively which was good because we wanted to hear each other. Very professional service. Fun!
Food quality was below expectations
One of the best meals I've had in a very long time. Everything was delicious! We had a fantastic waiter - wish I could remember his name - He moved things along quickly, knowing we were headed to the theatre, but he didn't rush us. My new favorite restaurant in downtown Houston.
The food was great, the service was good, the reservation was pointless. Made reservations for 12:15 pm on a Sunday. At 12:35 pm I asked if my table was anywhere close to being ready and they could not give me an answer. Due to the time constraints of seeing a show at the theater, we took a table outside, which was available at noon, the time we originally arrived. The food was great, however I would not recommend this place unless hey got their reservations and seating more organized.
Service could have been better, but the food was excellent.
The food was excellent!
Positives: we did not have to wait for our reserved table; happy hour drinks are well-made and tasty; appetizers (asparagus, smoked duck quesadillas, tuna tacos) were tasty and the correct temperature;
Negatives: very slow service
If you don’t mind having to flag down your server and the noise this is a fun place for a drink and appetizers (we did not order a meal), with a lively bar
Definitely not what I expected, from the reviews and the website I was looking to be blown away by Hearsay. We came with some friends, I have to be honest I was a little embarrassed because it did meet the expectations the website claimed. The history of the building was very nice but after that it was a let down, from the host to the waiter. I should have went with my gut and went with my first choice. We will not be returning, Hearsay needs an overhaul in the service department.
Reservation for 3 people was at 8:45pm. Showed up at 8:25pm. At 9:10pm still did not have a table for us. I complained to the staff that I made a reservation and that I should be seated at 8:45pm. They contacted the manager who subsequently combined two single tables for us and then made us move when another table opened up. Offered a free appetizer for the inconvenience of the delayed seating. Ordered side of sauce with dinner (mid-dinner) and it never came - simply forgot it. Also received the wrong check which took another 15 minutes to sort out. I will take my money and spend it elsewhere - there are much better places in Houston with better service and better food and drinks.
Good as usual. Enjoy coming here.
The place was very interesting but we were all dissapointed with our food. We ordered 7 different things and felt like it was kinda lack luster. It was all displayed pretty and the service was excellent. But we were not real impressed with the food.
We did think the cocktails were EXCELLENT!
Nice atmosphere and great food.
Brunch was ok. Food was average. The building itself is worth the visit!
Took more than 45 minutes for food to arrive. Waitstaff was in attentive. Do not plan to return.
This was a great treat. We didn’t have much time due to theatre tickets. Service was awesome and very understanding. Food and cocktail were great! Will definitely be back and leave more time to enjoy!
Everything was great... Minus the music.
It was a bad blend of 80's soft rock that DEFINITELY didn't go with the ambiance and aesthetic if the restaurant.
Outside of that, service was admirable and the food was PHENOMENAL! you have to try the fried quail!!
Our server was excellent. Unfortunately, I can't remember her name. She had straight brown hair and wore glasses. She was very friendly, knowledgeable and made excellent recommendations! If you like sweet, fruity drinks, The Smoot was delicious. The Whitney was very good also. My husband really like the Blood and Sand but thought the Smoke and Mirror was awful. Skip the lobster tempura, very greasy. The Ahi tacos were very good. Our most constructive criticism is that the hostesses need training on customer service and how to greet customers and especially what to do when you seat a guest. The hostess was less than friendly when we arrived and when she seated us, she put the menus down and walked away.
Hearsay NEVER disappoints. Hostess and waiter/bartender were extremely friendly and gracious. Seared Ahi Tuna dish was perfect. Live band was a great addition to the night. I've been here numerous times before and food AND drinks have always been delicious. With their great group of employees(hostess, waitstaff, bartender, cook) who know exactly how to do things right, Hearsay will be sure to please.
I had the shrimp and lobster risotto. Every element of the dish was cooked to perfection! We had a vegan diner in the group and she was impressed with the vegetarian menu and there were vegan options for her. Our server was great and the ambience as amazing. I highly recommend Hearsay on Market Square!
We had Sunday brunch with bottomless mimosas. Fun time for our family!
The atmosphere iwas nice. High ceilings, attractive bar. Not very many tables downstairs and are a little too close together for conversation privacy. I believe there is space for groups upstairs. Service was less than satisfactory. Food was good.
I ordered a Whiskey Smash. The menu described a Whiskey Smash as Bourbon, lemon, and mint. I ordered it because I figured with those ingredients, it would be relatively low calorie. When I received it, the low ball glass was not full with 2 large square ice cubes in it, so the liquid was probably actually only 1/3 of the glass. It obviously had more than those three ingredients in it because it tasted a little sweet. I asked the waiter what the ingredients were and he said Bourbon, simple syrup, lemon and mint. I told him that I noticed something sweet but that I'd ordered it because the menu listed only 3 ingredients and I thought it would not be sweet. The waiter said "oh. yeah, it has simple syrup in it". No offer to have it re-made. I figured I'd go ahead and drink it, since it was not very much liquid rather than make a request for it to be remixed. If it had only been bourbon, mint and lemon, a 1/3-1/2 full glass would have seemed appropriate. But a drink with simple syrup usually fills a glass.
I ordered the salmon salad for dinner. When the waiter brought out my husband's dish and my salad, the fish on top of my salad did not look like salmon. I said, "I ordered salmon. That looks like tuna". He said, "oh, I will change it" and took it away. Fifteen minutes passed before my salad was brought out. No apology, just said that "they read the ticket wrong". It felt like he took no responsibility. The way I see it, he picked the dish up from the kitchen and didn't notice. Anyway, it was tasty.
I was thinking that the "right" thing to do would be to comp us part of our meal for the "mix-ups". I didn't ask for a manager or anything, just left fairly disappointed.
Second time here and great food and service both times.
Food was excellent. Service was mediocre. We appeared to have service by committee. Ordered iced tea and never got a refill even after I asked one of the four people coming around.
Best Waitress Ever!! Thanks Margot
I’ve visited Hearsay several times before and enjoyed the food and ambience, so I made reservations to celebrate wife and I’s 5th anniversary. Sadly, when we showed up they didn’t have table available, and when they finally did find one, it was a small bar top on the side of the upstairs bar in the middle of the traffic/walkway. The actual building has some great character and the food was good, however the cocktails were 75% ice and the attention to detail was the most disappointing part. I had added a note to the reservations about it being our anniversary, and ended up sitting at a tiny bar table with barely room for both our plates. The waiter was attentive and friendly, but I’d expect better from a downtown restaurant on a Friday night. I’m hoping we just caught them on a off night, but overall it was a disappointing visit.
The service was good, but the food was lacking and our server could not answer questions about the food. There were plenty of tables open in the restaurant but we were seated next to another table with only about a foot of space between us (and yes, we had a reservation). The beef egg roll was surprisingly tasty. We ordered red snapper with shrimp and crawfish. The fish was slightly overcooked and the crawfish was so small and tasteless we asked where they were from. We were told they were from Louisianna, but they looked and tasted like they were more likely from Indonesia. The lemon curd blueberry crumble for desert was also a total fail. It wasn't a crumble at all and when we asked about this, the waitress said the cake was the crumble. What? Whatever. The building is beautiful but doesn't make up for the lack luster food being served.
It was brunch and the high top table was pushed up against another table and when we asked to move to another table we were told we could not. The wait staff was not quick to accommodate. The did try to reposition the tables and chairs for us. That should have been done before seating customers.
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.
