Anxious to try Loch for the first time and glad we did. Have to say the music being piped out was the best ever! Our appetizers and entrees were great, as was our server. I would say the only hiccup was the excessive time it took between our appetizers and when we receive our entrees. The server and the manager I think did realize that and came to our table. But the oysters, scallops lobster, fried chicken and everything else was delicious.

Service parfait, belle ambiance en terrace avec les lampes à flamme.
Dîner vin / charcuterie / fromage : suffisant pour 2 personnes. Les portions de fromage du plateau sont toutefois un peu limitées par rapport à d’autres restaurants.
Live music à partir d’une certaine heure.

Sage was a great server! It was hot and the outdoor seating has almost no shade. While we know the street noise of Westheimer can’t be helped, better shade or umbrellas would be expected especially in this season of Covid and outdoor seating being so necessary.

Little over priced. Brunch for 2 was $162 with cocktails plus tip.
The food was delicious. Had my first raw oyster. Very good actually. I had the king crab. 11 oz was just enough.
Service was great and very attentive
Only complaint was lack of umbrellas on the patio. Sun was beaming that day.

The food was not the quality and quantity expected for the price. It took quite a while for appetizers and main course to be brought out, way too long considering only about 4 other tables with 2 to 3 persons during the lunch hour.

Had to valet park even though there were ample parking spaces in front of the restaurant all blocked off by the valet. Silly during lunch time where few customers were parking. Too many better restaurants in this city to choose for lunch time.

Great place! Loved everything about this place. From the food to the service 100 stars. Andrew the GM was amazing, even though I was early for my reservation he catered to me and gave me a seat at the bar so I’m not waiting outside. My server Augustine was very attentive and fast. Everyone was great. I nothing negative to say.

The food was amazing. We tried it all, at least it seemed. Oysters, deviled eggs, shrimp cocktail to start. Then crab cakes, fish and chips, chops with Brussels sprouts and mac and cheese! Food was delicious and on point! For a $400 tab you would think the service would have been just as good as the food. Server not very attentive to us. Walked past us multiple times without asking how we were. Even the manager walked past us. Thankfully the staff who brought our food out was helping out more.

When eating oysters outside, would be helpful to have something to shade oyster tray to keep ice or slow down from melting.

The first time we ate there it was a better experience. This time we sat right next to the computer ordering station and there was a lot of negative energy (and even what seemed to be an argument). The waitress was very sweet, but unfortunately not very good. Had to ask for things multiple times. Oysters were excellent, the crab cake was a bit fishy, and the fried chicken was dry and over done. Prices were a bit steep. $50/lb for whole main lobster and minimum size was 2 lbs. $32/glass Veuve Champagne when it's available at a Total Wine for $47 a bottle. I get a mark up, but that's high.
