Food was great and drinks were good. Service was a little slow but that’s everywhere now since COVID Shortage of staff across restaurants.

They seated us immediately but apparently forgot to tell anyone they seated us. We sat for nearly 20 minutes before we flagged someone down to take our order. She did the best she could to take care of us but service was mediocre at best. Food was good as was atmosphere. Just not a pleasant experience for what you would expect the norm to be for a place like this. Everyone around us seemed to get prompt service.

Very nice atmosphere and ambiance, waiter was super sweet and attended to our every need. Food was excellent from the fresh sourdough bread to the delicious cheese cake. As expected it’s a little expensive, but you get what you pay for.

Fish, and oddly the green beans, were very fishy. It also took a while to get the correct side served with the fish. Beyond that, serving staff and manager were great!

We were in Houston for the weekend just for a little getaway. On our last night there we decided to come here and as soon as we walked in the ambiance was so romantic and soothing. Our waitress was AMAZING. I really wish I remembered her name but you could tell she loved what she did. She had so much patience with us since we had never been there before so it took us a minute to discuss and figure out what we wanted. She gave us recommendations and omg they were so good. The food tasted amazing and had a great presentation. Honestly we ordered so much just to try the different things and the total bill wasn’t what I thought it would be, it came out cheaper than we expected. When I go back to Houston this will definitely be a go to for myself and anyone I go with!

Christmas Day dinner. Arrived at 1600. Place was empty. We were seated, waited 15 minutes before staff arrived at table, this was after I went looking for anybody. Staff was at far end of dining room, in a group talking. When they saw me walk towards them, they all scattered. Found a busboy and asked him where we could find our waiter. No joy.

Waiter finally re-emerged. We ordered everything at once in, order to not prolong the agony. Food was usual Landry’s fare. Overpriced and mediocre quality.

Do not recommend. We were happier after we left.

Service was fast we were seated quickly at our reservation time in a preferred booth. Lighting was so low it was difficult for some to read the menu. The food was disappointing. Steak was cooked rare instead of medium as ordered; wedge salad was warm & tasted like feet!! All vegetable sides were way overdone with butter, seasoning, etc. Good quality food shouldn’t be over seasoned / overdone with too much butter, salt, glaze, etc., as there shouldn’t be anything that needs to be “covered up”. Over half the food was inedible, so I’m out $200 but we’re still hungry. Honestly, the food tasted like someone’s grandson watched a YouTube video and tried his best to make family dinner…at least no one got sick!

Everything was perfect and “on-point” but I must say that the entire experience was greatly enhanced by the top-notch service we received from our server, Cory.
It’s amazing how a server can “make or break” an exquisite dining experience. Cory certainly made our visit special!

It was a slow start, when we walked in we waited 10-15 minutes before we were even acknowledged and when I asked the bartender if anyone was at the hostess stand, he gave me a short curt answer. But once we got to the table, it was better. Our server was attentive and friendly. The steak was great, but the mac and cheese lacked real flavor. All in all it was good.

We had reservations at 7, didn't get seated until 720. The entire about 25% full and were still seated late. The food was terrible and made everyone sick. The lobster had zero taste. Service was slow. The people eating in the bar area were extremely loud. I will never eat here again. I will actually tell my friends to not go, it was that bad.

We went last night, there were 7 of us, it was a special surprise dinner for my family before going to a Christian Christmas Concert at The Toyota Center. I did A LOT of research on downtown restaurants before deciding on this one. The food was very good, the atmosphere was very nice, the location was great. But unfortunately our service was NOT what a restaurant with these prices should offer! I was more zestfully descriptive of menu item recommendations than she was and that was just from reading all the reviews. I then had to go ask the hostess to have our waitress please come back to our table because we had all been sitting there with empty glasses and dirty appetizer plates for a while with our waitress nowhere in site. Spending this much money on a dining experience is something my family has only done one other time, it was planned to be a truly magical evening. We still had a wonderful night, and my family was so appreciative! It is just disappointing to not be able to give the entire experience a five star rating especially since it came with a 5 star price! The apple pie was absolutely delicious, much better than the little fancy chocolate basket dessert that’s their signature dessert.

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.
