    Your server could use some more training in terms of how to be attentive as well as what not to take away from the table while still being enjoyed.

    As a loyal Landry's customer, I was disappointed in a business dinner I had last night. Wait staff was slow, the food really wasnt that good/high quality in my opinion. I've been going to M&S for years, was very disappointed. Downtown is a good location for folks that live in the various suburbs, and M&S downtown is a great location for that reason. Just disappointed in my experience.

    Went for dinner before heading to Houston Symphony. Service was great, food was very good. My wagyu steak was cooked to a perfect medium. It was a bit noisy when we walked in from a big party in the front; however, we were seated further back in a nice quiet area. Very much enjoyed our dinner.

    Took a little long to order and bring the food. Good quality was pretty good. Crispy fish on tacos wasn’t great but rest of tacos were ok. Seafood gumbo was only 1 pc of shrimp. Tastes good though.

    We visited on a Monday night for our daughters birthday. Restaurant was pretty empty but the staff was great and our steaks were even better. One of the most flavorful steaks that I've ever had. They also provided a molten lava cake as a desert for her birthday. I'll most likely return here for our next business dinner.

    This is the second time I’ve made reservations and they closed early. The door was locked and nobody had the decency to come out to tell my family and I that they closed early. I had my husband, my 3year old and 1 month old baby with me outsidek. The lady just looked at us and kept cleaning. The first time the manager told the hostess that they couldn’t seat us because they closed early after we had reservations. The manger didn’t come out to apologize or anything. BAD BUSINESS!!!

    The worst!! My booth was full of gnats!! I was swatting them away the whole time. Looked up and one had dived into my glass of wine. Had shrimp kisses (appetizer) and one landed on it as well!! Then it gets better .. the scallops in my Scallops ala Linguini were rubbery and chewy. My waiter was wonderfully apologetic but the manager was another story. She was very rude and had the nerve to come out and roll her eyes while asking me what do I want them to do, while explaining that gnats are a common problem in this season. She also basically insinuated that I ate half of my food so she didn’t understand what the problem was. I explained that I had already felt bad sending the wine and shrimp back because of bugs, but I didn’t expect that the chef didn’t know how to cook scallops!! I honestly did try to eat it and not complain but for this to be a supposed high end restaurant, I expected better. I have been to this restaurant many times before and have never had this type of experience. I definitely will not be back. The chef and the management needs to be replaced.

    The steaks were beyond great! However, of our table of 10 half ordered fish. Almond bass, sea bass etc. and all complained the fish fell short of expectations, being bland tasteless. The oysters were gritty had slivers of shells. The poissonnier position may need to be examined. We will return and stick to the steak.

    We've always had wonderful dinners here but were very disappointed about our recent meal. Salmon was dry, trout was dry and had little flavor, steak was mediocre at best, and bottle of wine was brought out too warm. Not at all what we expect from M&S not sure if their quality in general has gone down or if this was just an off-evening.

    Burned toast on the reuben (they did replace); overcooked and not fresh fried fish in the fish taco; bland chicken alfredo. Stick to the steaks and fresh seafood, even if there during lunch. The lunch menu is highway robbery, as its pretty pricey, but way lower quality than their regular menu.
