The first complaint would be the $15 parking fee at the parking garage next to the restaurant. our waiter was great, however the greeter was quite rude. The food was ok, would not recommend.

My husband and I visited for our anniversary dinner before an Astros game. The food was phenomenal. I ordered the ribeye, and asked the server for a side recommendation. He recommended the mushroom risotto and it was absolutely my favorite thing on the plate. The steak was cooked perfectly with great flavor. My husband ordered the ahi tuna sandwich and loved it as well. The service was a little on the slow side but they were very busy, and we still got in and out in plenty of time before our game.

The people were excellent. We spent extra time just having coffee and conversation after brunch. They were so accommodating and friendly. The food was good and not excessive in portion. We went before an Astros game and it was so convenient. I recommend going.

We love coming here before Astros games. Good food,
Service and value. Drawback- noisy and the high top bench seats are too low, especially for shorter people.

The food was absolutely outstanding, we literally ordered three appetizers, each of us had an entree then we went all in and ordered two desserts. The best part though was our server, he was so funny and gave truly impeccable service!

Went before a concert at Toyota Center. Fun atmosphere and great location for walking to Toyota Center. Service was good but food was just ok. Will try again before a Rockets game sometime and order something different.

We had a wonderful experience at Hearsay on the Green! The lobster and shrimp risotto was excellent and the South Texas burger was also GREAT! Our waiter Juban, was very knowledgeable, friendly, and went the extra mile to make sure we were happy. We also had a few other waitstaff ask if everything was going well and as expected. It's so nice when an establishment and its people really care about the quality of their food and service. We will definitely go back! We are also going to try Hearsay in Market Square!

My wife and I had brunch here on Sunday. The mimosa's were great. The bourbon pecan french toast and proscity and asparagus omlet were excellent. Serivce was not on par with it taking a very long time for our food to come out even though we clearly beat the brunch rush and the waiter never acknowledging the long wait or asking how was the meal.

The place is nice. Very sophisticated but laid back. I was disappointed when I told all my guests that there was a business casual dress code but came in to see people in T-shirt’s and caps. The menu is extensive but the food not seasoned to my liking. Overall it was cute but could improve.

We road bikes downtown for a bite. Hostess told us all the tables were reserved and try to stick us at the table right by the door. I insisted on a different table. God we did. Only 3 other parties showed up before we left over an hour later. Server was fine. Didn’t know the menu. We gave the food a B- not great but just ok. Probably won’t go rushing back.

I ordered the lobster risotto and the risotto was great but the lobster was rubbery. Then for dessert, I ordered the brownie and it was very dry but the ice cream and fudge on top and around it made it bearable

This is a great place if you want to kick back after work and enjoy the company of friends. It's small and intimate, making it nice for a quick get together with friends or co-workers.

This was my second visit. First, was a couple years ago for Mother's Day. We enjoyed the food, though it was very loud due to the music. Decided to come for office birthday lunch. Over all things were nice. But one order was put in wrong (restaurants need to go back to writing out orders) but they said it tasted good just not what they wanted- the person has a rule about not sending food back for fear what happens in the kitchen after that. The stuffed chicken was a bit dry but had a nice flavor. My veggie burger had a really nice taste but the party was so thin it was almost like a spread on two thick, albeit delicious, buns. But the fries were on point. Another person in our part had the fried chicken and said it was very good, as were their sides.

The server was very nice! The overall staff was very pleasant from our arrival until we left. There are times restaurants don't get it right and they can be forgiven...next time.

Our waitress was wonderful. Dark hair and cute glasses. She made the evening so pleasant. One of the best waitresses I have had in a long time!
Noise level was ok only due to a loud table of 6 by us. They were a bit obnoxious when laughing and scream talking to each other. So not restaurants fault.
Excellent food and a nice portion for the price. Appetizers and dessert was just wonderful.

They sat us and then forgot about us. I had to go ask to be served. When they brought us water, one of the glasses had Sprite at the bottom. They brought our check when we were thinking about dessert. Obviously they didn’t want our business.

First visit gave me a very good first impression! We went for Sunday brunch and found the restaurant and bar were both very clean, with an elegant and refined aesthetic. Our server, Aaron, was polite, attentive, and knowledgeable about the food and drink menus, and answered all of our questions. The beer selection was good, but the wines and liquors were a little on the pricey side (e.g. $11 for a single of Buffalo Trace or Knob Creek). The food was excellent: I had a cup of the soup of the day (chicken tortilla) to start and the Angus bacon cheeseburger with truffle rosemary parmesan fries and thoroughly enjoyed it all. The rest of the table had the braised short ribs eggs Benedict, seared ahi tuna salad, and steakhouse salad, all of which looked incredible. The food came out quickly, although the restaurant wasn't too packed so that may differ during peak hours. The prices were reasonable for the quality, and the portions ranged from moderate to generous. All in all a great experience!
