Love this resterant! Beautiful decor, delicious food and great service! We love Stephen...always requests him! He is the best...friendly, attentive and makes us feel at home there! He’s so fun to talk to and he’s just the best❤️! The management there is also what makes that place run so well! Kudos to them all!!!!
We have been looking for a fish dish similar to one we used to enjoy at a Thai restaurant in the UK. The red snapper special was the closest that we have found. The shrimp with green curry sauce was also very delicious.
Everything was wonderful, the food and cocktails were amazing! Will definitely be visiting again.
Always consistent and great food and good service.
Great food and service! Will definitely be back.
Excellent food, ambience and staff.
Thank you Trevor for the wonderful service. We continue to recommend all our family and friends.
Service was not great. Hostess was extremely rude and had an attitude for no reason. Food is always good, managers are kind.
Everything was very enjoyable. Service was attentive, food was very good.
Our waitress was horrible. She works aa if she is working at a Chinese buffet.
Birthday dinner - quiet table in a corner and they did a nice sparkler with his dessert!
First time at this place with a friend. The food was excellent. Great fusion berween french and viet cusine. I will be back soon.
Great food and service!
Had a fantastic born day lunch with my Mom. I enjoyed the food, it was scrumptious, lovely ambiance, competitive price point and menu, stellar and world class service by all the staff we engaged with from the moment we got at the door till the time we were exiting the door. Looking forward to come back here soon!
Keep up the great work!
The food is always outstanding and the staff do a great job
Excellent dinning experience as always. Especially the attention to detail and exceptional service by Eugene. One of the best waiters we have ever encountered. Well done!
Excellent food, service and ambiance. Wines by the glass variety is also very good.
We frequent at this restaurant quite a bit but this last experience did not meet expectations. We sat at a table by the door to their patio and the staff kept leaving the door open allowing the cold in forcing guest to get up and close it. This is also something we experienced out last visit seeing as we were sitting at the exact same table. Also our waiter was not as attentive as we needed him to be which we later found out that he picked up an extra table. There were several managers in the building and no one helped him with his extra table causing some of my party who had soft drinks to go more than 30 mins at a time with no refill and delays in needs to enjoy the meal. Also the waiter over explained things to us such as not being able to split the ticket because the bar upstairs and blah blah it was unnecessary. The manager came by and apologized and explained the waiter having an extra table and that the ball was dropped and paid for our dessert. Didn’t leave feeling resolved. We’ve had things happened in the past such as wrong to go orders missing item and slow service but this might have been the last straw. Great food but poor service.
Fantastic! I love the drinks and the food. I go here all the time with friends and it is spectacular.
My favorite restaurant in Houston. Consistently outstanding.
One of our favorite Houston and Chicago restaurants! Again, it was excellent.
My wife and I (accompanied by our miniature Schnauzer) had a great lunch outside at the Houston location this week. We each started with the chicken dumplings (our new favorite appetizer) and shared the salmon, which was cooked perfectly. My wife had the opera cake for dessert. A bottle of wine helped complement the food as well.
Our server, Nu (sp?) was attentive and helpful. Good job!
It’s was great experience food came out very quick. Had a 9PM movie show town. The service was better than I expected.
We ordered the duck’s dish and it was rawness when they returned it, the meat was harder than it supposed to be. We had to asked for another set of silverware and plates since they we’re keeping the ones with we used of the other food (dirty)
great food w great service; we initially were seated by the door and the draft was bothersome...the manger moved us to a desirable area without much issue
The outstanding service by Trevor the manager is why we consider this restaurant our favorite.
Love the food selections
Amazing prix fix menu for New Year’s Eve dinner!!
The food was just ok but, for the price, I expected more.
Great experience as always. Food is fantastic as well as service.
I found my portions to be appropriate but my husband ordered the short rib entree and it wasn't more than 2-3 oz of meat with absolutely NOTHING else on the plate to fill him up! It looked like an appetizer! We eat at fine restaurants regularly and are familiar with smaller portions but this was absurd. We probably will not return.
Amazing and delicious! Perfect in every way!😊
Excellent food and service as usual
All of our appetizers and entrees were amazing. The desserts, however, left something to be desired!
Diner was great but wanted to mention something needs to be done to stop the idiots on the street in their high priced Ferraris and Porsches who are revving their engines for about 30 minutes straight. That is unacceptable and the police should have been called and citations issued to the hoes people.
What should have been a 45 minute lunch took two hours. From beginning to end, it’s the worst experience I have ever had there and I had taken numerous clients to dine there. We had to wait almost 30 minutes to get our water and an hour for our entrees. It seemed well staffed and I saw people coming and going by us so I am not sure if we were the exception or if service was generally poor that day. My brother ordered a side of white rice that we told would be removed from the bill since it was late coming out.... and we never even got it. When I got the bill, I was overcharged too. My brother ordered the pre-fixed lunch and I ordered an appetizer and fried rice a la cart. Total should have been $24 for both. Was charged $25 as well for a pre fixed lunch and a $7 upcharge for fried rice. Communicating with our waitress was like talking to a wall. She fixed the bill but there was no apology and even fixing that took forever. And certainly nothing was “removed” from the bill. I wanted to leave a zero tip. It was the most appalling restaurant experience I have had in years. Do not see myself ever coming back.
The food was excellent, the service was horrible, and the way we were treated was unacceptable.
Great restaurant however the fixed Christmas menu was not my favorite selections.
