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.

Amazing dinner, we had the byrd burger and buffalo chicken sandwich which were delicious! I had the whiskey smash, very good just wish they would’ve filled the glass more. Fairly priced. Will definitely come back again

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!

The character of Heresay was both impressive and unique. While not a large establishment, the decor overall, especially the bar, was quite striking. Service was impeccable with our waiter being appropriately attentive and helpful without being intrusive. Our respective meals were nicely presented, well-prepared, generous in portion size, and delicious. A very nice wine list and dessert offerings were available. The dining experience was intimate and thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended!

We were at this restaurant recently and it was by far the worst experience I have had. It was super dark, there were candles on our table that nobody came to lit. Drinks took a long time to come and some of them were messed up. Appetizers never came. We waited over an hour to get our order taken, where the waiter didn’t write anything down. He came back several times to ask us again what we asked for and food still came wrong to our table. We had to inhale our food due to how long it took to receive.. it was good food but we didn’t get to enjoy it. Our waiter made several rude comments and appearances to our table. Management was no help when we complained he told us that they were phasing our waiter out and knew he was terrible. Would never come again.

I took my family there while at a conference in Houston. Let me start by saying the food was good, but not excellent. The fried chicken was very good and the appetizer items that my son and daughter ordered were good as well. My wife ordered a Veggie Burger that was horrible. If her food was better I would have given it 4 to 5 stars. Let me also mention that the manager was a delight. We were sent over by the Hilton and she gave us deserts to die for. When the Queen didn't like it, I have to go a little low on the score (don't tell her, but I enjoyed the food at this restaurant).

I absolutely loved our service and meal at Hearsay. I reserved a table for 10 for my birthday brunch and the waiter was very nice and attentive. We had the restaurant to ourselves for a while and it was nice, the food was absolutely delicious. Our waiter took my cake back, when it was time to serve he cut it in the back and came out with slices in a plate for each of my guests. I recommend this place. Thank you for such a pleasant brunch.

It is a smaller venue, so definitely make a reservation. Like most places down by the baseball field it is attached to a hotel. This means you get all kinds in there. From family with small kids to intimate date nights. The wine, the food, the service it was great.

Some things were really good (the short ribs and the veggies) and some things were just ok (the stuffed chicken breast). Their signature chili soup was good but maybe b/c it had cream and cheese in it? I'd love to see them update their menu with healthy hacks that still taste amazing. Also, they could use to look at their flavor / which while ok, could have been amazing with some spicing tweaks. For ex, the stuffed chicken breast sounded like it would be amazing. But it was bland, chewy and tasted really flat. The service was great and the people super nice. It's a friendly neighborhood vibe but not your high-end sleek cool if that's what you're looking for (at the Dallas location). Thx

The server was great. The attitude at the podium was lack luster. They weren't busy enough to be so non-chalant toward a customer on a Friday evening.

That said, the food was delicious. The waiter was great. I will go back.

We were late for our reservation, but I let them know in advance, and they were very accommodating. Service was a bit slow, promised credit on bill was not given. Since it was a large group of 8, 20% gratuity was automatically added, but service was definitely not worth it. I think on a less busy night, it works have been better. Now for the good part. The food was outstanding with a huge variety to choose from. Steaks were cooked perfectly, southern fried chicken was awesome with a great savory flavor. It made me want to order a second meal. Next time.

We did not not realize it was still baruch being served but had o hearts set on dinner items. He arranged for us to get the meals we wanted. The server and attendant were also super friendly and provided excellent service. I will definitely visit again when in town.

Food was excellent, service was great. Prices for the brunch however were higher than normal which didn't make sense to me since they were the same items as their regular brunch. Parking is terrible for this location. They should have some sort of valet. Doesn't make sense to pay a full day if you're only there for an hour or 2. Other than that, my mother and myself enjoyed our time at the restaurant.

Unfortunately, I was not happy with Hearsay. I had the chicken and waffles. The waffle was doughy/chewy....did not taste like a fresh/fluffy waffle. The chicken was just okay. Plentiful dish but not that great. My friend had the shrimp & grits and said it was a little salty.
