    I ordered the cup of gumbo, we had deviled eggs to start, gumbo is delicious, it came out hot, and it’s very flavorful. Deviled eggs were amazing. I had the filet sub Brussels and my friend had the redfish. All were so good, my steak was a perfect med rare. Service was not up to par with the food, and atmosphere. Please let me preface this by saying I’m in the industry in a GM position, and I do have high expectations. Our server came, introduced himself, and gave great recommendations. Ordered a bottle of wine, and my friend a gin cocktail. After the first glass of wine, I had to pour my own, I actually was so annoyed that I had to do that I only drank about 1.5 glasses. After we ordered our food, we never saw the server again until our entrees hit the table, my wine glass was empty, and so was my friends cocktail. He asked if everything came out ok, we said yes and then we never saw him again until he asked if we wanted dessert and the check was dropped. Team work was non existent, the food runners were uninterested and unfriendly, servers mostly hanging out at the bar service well, servers looked disheveled, ours was the best dressed I would say. I tipped 20% because I feel like 20% is the bare minimum, and that’s what we received service wise. Hospitality can for sure be increased, as we were leaving, we walked right by our server, and he didn’t say thank you, or bye.

    Hey, Thanks for your feedback. We're glad you enjoyed our gumbo, deviled eggs, and filet sub. It's unfortunate that the service and wine didn't meet your expectations. We value your comments and will use them to improve. We hope to serve you better in the future.

    Dinner at Hearsay on the Waterway is always a pleasure. But Valentines Day dinner was extra special. It was not as crowded as I thought it would be, which was kind of nice. We had a very kind server and she was attentive, but not overly in your face. The food was delicious as usual. Overall a great night and experience.

    Charming, cozy, easy parking ($5). The salmon was great, harvest salad was superb, gumbo was over-the-top incredible. The filet was a bit tough and green beans were a bit undercooked for my taste. But, that is a personal preference and does not hinder a recommendation to dine there and enjoy all of the many accolades it deserves.

    Great bread plate and steaks. Drinks were good. Only downside was the chips and dip. Dip was great! Chips were so thin we couldn’t use them to eat because they kept breaking.

    Wedge salad good, but had to ask for more dressing. Hearsay Steak nice flavor but somewhat chewy. Vegetables were really good.

    What a hidden gem! Brunch at Hearsay on the Water was beautiful and a perfect fit for a busy Christmas Eve for my family. The food was delicious, the service was timely, and the restaurant was calm and bright. The brunch menu had some great gluten-free options and excellent prices. Three cheers for the steak and eggs!

    Hearsay on The Waterway was just ok. The food was ok, service was good! Nothing bad to report but presentation could have been better. I had the scallops and they were good just not mind blowing. I was expecting something excellent based on the opinion of someone else but as stated before, underwhelmed.
