The steaks were tough though we ordered one medium and one medium well.
We spent over $250.00 and came away disappointed with our anniversary dinner.

The dining experience was excellent. The food was delicious. The server was very personable and responsive to our requests. The ambiance was very nice and our table location, next to the window, was quiet and romantic. I would recommend this restaurant.

The staff and ambiance were nice, but the food was just not that flavorful. Also, my jumbo lump crab sauce on my fish was a joke…hardly any crab—certainly not jumbo lump.
I would recommend Flemming’s instead.

First time on the dining room. Last time in the dining room. ;(. We had a party of 9. Service was NOT GOOD, Food was served Cold. All the Steaks had to be returned for warming. They still came back Cold. We were all disappointed. It was a special occasion. Im afraid we will not be returning.

Been to this location for three special occasions now and still loving the corded off booth to ourselves in a romantic restaurant downtown. The service is always phenomenal and the food was fantastic, outside of the swordfish which was not as good as we remembered from the year before, and this last time we were sat by a party table that wouldn't quit, but it was still very good service and we very much enjoyed the booth and our anniversary dessert.

Why is the older gentleman working the bar so rude? I’ve been many times and he is so grumpy and unpleasant. He makes it difficult to enjoy the overall experience because of his attitude

Dinner was unacceptable. Herb Broth Sea Bass was good yet the Cedar Roasted Atlantic Salmon, green beans w/ roasted potatoes were served room temperature. Even after asking for hot vegetables to go with the salmon, the green beans came out room temperature so much so that the whipped butter did not melt on the green beans when applied. The roasted potatoes came out deliciously hot.
Server had a difficult time opening the bottle of wine using the manual bottle opener. Asked if she had an electric opener, she stared that she could not use it because it did not represent the presentation of the restaurant. Please give your staff the tools or training needed.
Overall, highly disappointed.

Extremely disappointing. My husband and I went for our anniversary. My husband ordered a steak that he said looked and tasted just like a steak from a lower budget restaurant. I ordered the lobster bisque that was too rich to take more than a few bites of. When the waitress came by and asked if I liked the bisque, I told her it was just way too rich in taste. Her response was "Oh ok".
The attire was much more relaxed than what we thought it would be coming from a restaurant with $$$$. We did have grilled octopus as an appetizer and it was really good.

We were greeted by a professional and lovely hostess, the waiter could have been at any standard sit down restaurant. The only items we enjoyed were the cocktails, steak and walnut green salad. I have had better appetizer and sides at a buffet type restaurant. Roasted potatoes were dry and no flavor, same with asparagus. The calamari which I was sure was a win, since we were at a steak and seafood place, but it was all breading and overcooked barely distinguishable calamari pieces. The restaurant can't help what craziness the guest bring and it was an interesting night with a screaming toddler at a table next to us and directly behind was a drunk couple and the girl was sobbing and upset trying to salvage her relationship apparently. We made the most of it, but have no places to return anytime soon. Disappointing since we live just a few blocks away.

My experience was nothing short of excellent.
I am new to the Houston area and I wanted to find a restaurant that would be a great business meeting with my District GM and it exceeded her expectations! She was very impressed and it made me look good as well. I will definitely be back for more business meetings and also for personal occasions as well. The staff was professional everything was tasty and delicious and timely kudos to everyone.

Thank you

We were seated promptly and our server was at our table almost immediately to take our drink order. The food was good overall. I really loved their sour dough bread and the Australian lobster. I wasn’t crazy about the wedge salad as I’m used to blue cheese crumbles and chunky blue cheese dressing. This wedge salad had no blue cheese crumbles and the dressing was disappointing. The wine selection was great. The Oysters Rockefeller were great although different from others I’ve had. I really think the best part was the service as it was friendly and attentive. I will return.

We really enjoyed our dining experience from start to finish. They made me a fantastic Lemon Drop Martini to start our dinner. The blackened Mahi-mahi was excellent and my husband had the blackened Rainbow trout. Both cooked to perfection! We will be back on our next trip to downtown Houston!
