Was not what I was expecting. The website makes it out to look like a fancy trendy place when actually this location is a hotel restaurant. Not the idea I had in mind for an anniversary dinner. Don’t get me wrong, it looks like a nice place but it was more of a bar and casual restaurant. The people in there were all in shorts and it was small. The menu looks good but once we got there we decided to go elsewhere for our anniversary. We did have a drink and ordered the cheese and meat tray which was actually really good. But not recommending for date night

Have eaten here twice before and really enjoyed it, but very disappointed third time. Service & ambiance were awesome but food did not meet expectiations. Calamari & Shrimp was very ,very dry and tasteless. The Butcher's Steak Sandwich was cooked to perfection (medium rare) but full of grissel and very difficult to eat. Left half of it on the plate. Has the chef/management changed? I was not impressed and would not recommend/return based on the experience of Friday, June 29

The hostess was extremely rude! Threw the menus on take and walked off. I waited for waiter for 20 min while everyone stood around! No one ever greeted us to say hey cat dog how can I help u? Welcome? Nothing! Worst experience! We were in disbelief as to how a business in downtown Houston could be ran so poorly. The manager walked around eventually to greet the guest and I informed him of what happened and he politely walked off as if it was normal to treat the customers this way! Ordered a drink and app then left to have a dinner at a restaurant that appreciates it's customers!

My parents and I went for Father's Day. Our server was excellent! The weather was pretty bad so we literally had the restaurant to ourselves at first. I had the lobster and shrimp with risotto and a saffron sauce. Fabulous! I enjoyed it. I definitely plan to return!

A group of 7 were going to Eagles concert close by so we told the waiter our time frame to leave. He said he would 'make it happen' and he did with time to spare! Food was excellent and place was lively. Floor manager checked on us twice which was nice. Next event downtown I will go back!

I have eaten here many times before attending a concert. The food is always great and the service is top notch. I generally am very happy there. Unfortunately, this time the air conditioner didn't seem to be working quite right. It was in the mid 90's outside and it was very warm inside. Even in shorts and a light top, I was sweating throughout the meal. Many customers at the tables around us were also fanning themselves. It made the dinner a little less enjoyable. Otherwise, it was great!!!

We went to Hearsay on the Green for our anniversary. We went early at 4 pm knowing how venues fill up quickly on weekends. The service was top notch and our server was very knowledgeable. We had drinks, appetizers, entrees and they presented us with the dessert of our choice since it was our anniversary. Our appetizers were good: quail bites and lobster tempura. Just a note that the quail bites are really like wings with the bone in. Our entrees included the pork chops and the lobster/shrimp risotto. The risotto was great but the pork chops were way too salty. They’re on top of cheese grits which were also too salty but the cheese grits with the quail bites were great! The dessert we had was creme brûlée and it was fabulous! So we will definitely go back but won’t order the pork chops again.

This is a great place for food/drinks before, or after events at the nearby Toyota Center, Hilton Americas Hotel, Discovery Green Park, or Convention Center. It is attached to the Embassy Suites Hotel, so it was easy to find. The only improvement to note is it was a bit too warm inside the restaurant/bar while my group was there for dinner on May 27, 2018.

Overall, I would still go back in the future, and would recommend it to others.

I unfortunately did not find this restaurant particularly appealing. I was expecting a much larger place and was surprised to find it was just a hotel bar. I was looking for a bit of glitz and glam yet casual enough to accept being dressed for the base ballgame. The food was good and our waiter, Ceasar was good at his job. We did enjoy and appreciate the birthday treat from the restaurant and thank you for that. Overall, the whole experience was fine but not one I feel the need to repeat. For a less special occasion or some casual eats it would be great.

The reservation specifically asked if we wanted a high top table or a regular table. We specified a regular table, but were instead were seated at a high top that was so close to other guests that we had to move out of the way every time people wanted to pass by. The restaurant's website advertised the Mother's Day brunch menu "all day", but it was not available. We also ordered desserts based on the recommendation of the waiter - a chocolate cake that was layered with white and chocolate mousse. The cake that he brought out was literally a plain chocolate cake. No mousse. Since he described it, you would assume he would notice that it isn't what he told me it was. I had to show him that it was not what he described.

Made the mistake of going on Rockets game night. We had made reservations but the hostess staff was so overwhelmed that it took a over 20 minutes to be seated. They were holding an area for a party of 30 that never appeared in the time that we were there. Complete chaos.

Service here is excellent. Our server was friendly, efficient & knowledgeable. Our water glasses were kept full. The atmosphere was upscale casual/trendy. The food selection was a bit limited but adequate and our seafood dish could have been seasoned a bit more - lacked that little “kick” you expect with a crawfish-shrimp stuffing, but it certainly was good and well cooked. Altogether, an enjoyable experience that we would recommend & repeat.
